    Default is iPhone 5 wifi antenna weaker than other phone?

    Just curious, I have iPhone 5 with latest iOS 8.3

    I also have latest Nexus 7 with 5.1.1 and Blackberry Q10 with 10.3.1 OS (all OS are all latest version).

    I am in a room where a wifi signal is pretty weak, however my N7 and Q10 can pick up the wifi signal (indicator is half strength) while my iPhone 5 does not pick up the wifi when in the same room and the same spot.

    That's because iPhone ignores the weak signal for obvious reasons. It's a problem sometime for me too. But that does not happen all the time. Try turning wifi on again and letting it search for a minute.
