Hey all!

Not sure if this is in the right spot, and I saw some others on here talk about this, but since getting my iPhone X, i noticed slow to sluggish wifi. At first i thought it was a hardware issue, but a few people I've talked to are having the same issue. I attached two screenshots; one is my iPhone X and the other is my wife's iPhone 5s; both connected to the same wifi. Does anyone have an idea if this is hardware? Software? not sure what to do. i tried some of the usual quick fixes, but to no help. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I just uploaded a third image with an even lower download speed, same spot in the house.

My wife has this problem, and I don't. The only difference I can figure out is that she restored from her 7+, and I set mine up as a new phone.

I had a similar issue where my 5Ghz WiFi wouldn’t go past 60mbps (so same speed as my 2.4Ghz). Way I solved this, along with a couple other glitches (WiFi disconnecting when the X was locked and apps dropping off the RAM after a very short period) was by fully wiping my phone and restoring from iCloud. All isues gone and my WiFi is blazing fast. Hope this helps.
