That, sir, was totally uncalled for.

Simple fact for me (and others of us) is multiple WiFi sites worked fine with iPhones, and WiFi at these same sites work poorly with my original and replacement S4's.
Another simple fact: different combinations of router & device chipsets react.... differently. I know of several former iPhone 5 users who have switched to S4s and report better wifi reception. All that proves though is the old "YMMV" adage.

Mixed-mode APs will always be at a disadvantage compared to single-mode ones. That's not to rule out Samsung doing something to compromise Qualcomm's baseband hardware, but throwing insults at each other won't get to the bottom of the issue.
