I am unsure why my X4S has such under-par WIFi.
Just looking at the review here: https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-reviews/32975-mu-mimo-retest-six-routers-compared

If I have an S7 (Edge) and it is getting 433Mbps ~3 metres away with phone laying flat on the sofa...
If I raise it above my head, pointing side-on to router - 433Mbps.
If I raise it above my head, pointing rear to router - 390Mbps!!!??

On the 2GHz band, flat on sofa = 156Mbps
Above my head sideways - 173Mbps
Above my head flat (rear) - 173Mbps

Go figure... I might change the antenna back and see if results change from this short distance.... Maybe 3.5m...
I even have the router sitting on a plastic tub of plant fertiliser, hoping that would help! (wait, not the fertiliser but the tub!) :p
