I had a similar experience with my Galaxy Tab 3. -20db worse reception on WiFi compared to my other devices. It also slowed down to 5Mb/down after some usage that a reboot would fix. Then the power button got sticky so back to Sprint it goes. I didn't realize how important a good WiFi connection is because I don't use WiFi on my T-Mobile phones since they have unlimited data.
Castrol EDGE 0W-20 is my drug of choice.
