    Default WiFi Software seems to be the problem, IMO

    The WiFi software and its settings seem to be an issue. On my GN, turning off WiFi , seems to increase signal strength for 4G. I normally display 1-2 bars on 4G inside my apartment, with WiFi off I normally get 2-3 bars consistently. If I change advance settings of WiFi, such as WiFi sleep options, the phone experiences a random reboot shortly thereafter, or an os file (system) FC'ing a short time later. I changed WiFi band preference from auto to 2.4, then tried to answer the phone after about 20 minutes, phone reset again. I turned off WiFi and reset the phone, no problems for 48 hours so far. The WiFi software seems to be an issue, IMO.

    Others have also reported resets using wifi.
    I use wifi every day, all day when I'm at home. I have no problems.

    Do you leave WiFi on when you leave your home? Or do you turn it off? If I dont change any settings, WiFi is fine when I come and go, but I experience much lower 4G signal. With WiFi Off, 4G shows as stronger, but when I mess with the settings, the phone will reset soon that day. Its random.

    When I remember I turn wifi off when I leave home because I don't want it to use some open WAP and sync my data.

    I have a tasker profile set to disable it when I go to work.
