Anyone able to help with Galaxy S5 WiFi issues?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and ever since I bought it (Purchased on releasing day), the WiFi connection is horrible.

To be more specific, the WiFi works perfectly when using the web browser, however, almost all of my applications that require internet connection such as facebook, youtube, imdb, snapchat, and various email application hardly work at all. I don't know if it's the applications themselves because applications like my mobile banking app, pandora, and my GPS application (Waze) all work just fine with no issues at all.

I googled it and found a few posts with somewhat similar issues which lead me to going into my WiFi settings and changing it from DHCP to static. However, it didn't help. I also went into my router and changed the channel, but it still didn't help.

If you have experience in this area or know of anything I can do to fix it, please feel free to explain.

Thank you Smiley Happy

Disable, uninstall, and force stop everythig labeled ANT. That was the only thing I found that fixed my problem (worked on figuring this out for about 3 days!). Running in safe mode does the trick also..because ANT ** is disabled. Easier to just get rid of it.

Two questions

1. Does your phone list your home wifi network in the available networks?

2. Can you hook up to wifi in other places besides your home?

i simply have refused to try this one lil bit of effort because i was convinced my home network had nothing to do with our smartphones not connectiong to facebook through our wifi. WRONG! it was the issue. apparently believe it or not there are a couple reasons why you have to sometimes reset your home wifi for your smartphones
