I have the same issue, it's very annoying. I hope Sony will fix it with an update soon. Please signal this issue to Sony in order to make them know that a Wifi issue exist.

I've contacted Sony and they told me to attempt to reinstall the smartphone via PC Companion but I don't think it will solve this..

No, it will not solve this. I've done it already and it made it worse, actually. I also changed my router channels around and there was slight improvement, but the reception is still aseven if you are literally 5 meters away. It is beyond me how such an expensive phone can have such a wi-fi card.

Re: xperia z1 wifi issue

Same issue - had the phone a week and having serious issues with poor wifi connectivity when my ipad and my wife's Samsung S4 have full connectivity. Is there a fix or will I send it back?
