Laptop vs iPhone

PerranOak:
My iPhone shows download speeds of around 350Mbps.

My new laptop (wifi stuff below) shows download speeds of around 250Mbps.

Obviously, I'm doing this on the same router, not changing anything, nothing else using it.

Any ideas how I can find out why?

Cheers.

Bicurico:
At those speeds the antena, it's orientation in regards to the routers antenna and the distance to the router are vital.

The laptop probably has the antenna in a different angle compared to the iPhone and the distance to the router might be different. Note that quality will decrease with squared distance, so a slightly higher distance might make a considerable difference in speed.

PerranOak:
Wow! I put the laptop three feet in front of the router and it showed a speed of 430Mbps! Unbelievable.

Time to reposition the router, I think.

Cheers mate.

Mobile phones have much better antennas

Expected to be somewhat better than those wire wrappings inside laptops
