How to Boost Wi-Fi Signal on Android

We would like to share with you interesting information on how you can strengthen the Wi-Fi signal on your smartphone, and tell you the whole truth about the applications – Wi-Fi amplifiers for Android – devices. About other useful Wi-Fi applications for Android read here.

About the effectiveness of applications

Now in GooglePlay and on many other Internet sites, you can find a lot of programs that, according to the description, significantly increase the Wi-Fi signal by Android, which provides better connection and speed. The entire setup procedure, as a rule, consists of one step: you just need to press the large button in the center of the display, after which the application will do everything by itself.

Some programs even have a curve that rises significantly after the button is pressed, showing how much better the signal has become after the program is running. However, tests carried out on other applications that measure signal and speed did not show any difference. The bottom line is that applications are made for users who are not very good at it. Apps have a lot of advertisements that constantly pop up annoyingly, and, in general, they are developed for this.

Why apps don't work

  1. The fact is that the connection depends not only on the gadget that receives it (your smartphone), but also on the device that distributes it (another smartphone, router). If the router does not work correctly and distributes the connection intermittently, then it is unlikely that the settings on your gadget can significantly affect the stability of the signal.
  2. Wi-Fi modules from different manufacturers are installed on different devices, respectively, they have different drivers and settings (lines of code in system files). Accordingly, if changes are made to system files, applications must require ROOT rights. In addition, if you change the values ​​in the system files, this can affect the autonomy of the work for the worse, cause additional heating of the device and cause errors in Android.
