A very strange thing happened and wanted EE advice.  We have android phones and a iphone phones.   We are setting up some computers and its wifi router in an office.  In order to detect the best signal possible, we used an apps that would detect a wifis' router signal connection and see speed or fluctuation, etc. so we can discover the perfect spot for all devices.

For some reason the android phone had better reach to a wifi router and the iphone super less.  For example, the apps would display 121 mbps and the android phone and in the iphone would detect 23 or 50 mbps - placing both phones next to each other, inches away the wifi.  

Please advice on possible cause.

Thank you in advance.
