hello all
, im new to the forum, i have just recently upgraded from a hero3 white to a hero3+ black and am having an issue with the wifi strength of the 3+black.
i have tried the latest firmware and wifi update, which got me paired with my samsung s5, but just barely, the signal range does not go far at at all
anything over 1ft and its on 1 bar, i have to literally sit the gopro on the phone for it to have a strong connection?

does anyone have any ideas on how i would fix this issue?

was bought second hand so warranty will be out of the question

any help would much appreciated

oh and im using a sandisk 32gb extreme plus if the card might be the issue

thanks

Bender

I also agree that u should report it back. And show the full bar on the white as an example
