    Just wondering if there was something I could do or possibly change in build.prop to stop wifi connection unless it is a strong connection. It's really annoying when it will drop my 3-4 bars of 4g to jump on a one bar wifi spot. I didn't mind it with my optimus because well... one bar of wifi was always better than the 1x or even 3g signal I was getting. But, when I have decent to good 4g I really don't want a weak wifi signal that can't even handle what I was doing. I always have to completely disable my wifi. I would like to be able to set some kind of priority to switch to the BETTER connection not just any sh*tty wifi I come across.

    Are you running the metro Wifi app? I deleted that and now my phone only connects to networks that i tell it too. Which i prefer, it automatically connects to my house campus and gym wifi. If there is a wifi network in the area it will tell me it is there but it doesnt automatically connect me.

    4g seems to be just as good as wifi for music and browsing.

    Stock wifi is always better plus uses less Ram storage and battery.
