I have read people having Wifi and Cellular problems.

During normal use, I have not noticed any problems BUT I have replicated this test on my Iphone Xs... Same results as the youtube vid.
When the phone is being held from the top and bottom, my wifi speed test goes to crap, sometimes not even starting. I have done this with and without a case

Thoughts?

First of all, I'm not sure what the heck I'm watching here. In what normal scenario would any person hold their phone in this manner?

Secondly, just tried to replicate this grip on my XS Max,and it had little to no effect on my throughput.

Lucky you, I definitely can "kill" my download speed when I hope it like in the vid.
But you are right, I dont see when would anyone hold their phone like that BUT I still wanna know what going on with this.

Why not post in the thread on this? No need for another thread.
I didnt know there was something ongoing...

Nah, im having issues with a case on so im not touching any antennas/bands. Also i can replicate the issue by not touching the phone at all.

iphone x: used to have fresh 5ghz wifi in my room, full coverage.
iphone xs: cant get a reliable connection, wifi just poops out every few mins so i just turn it off and use LTE in my room :/
