    The wifi in the ipads and android tablets have been much better than the phones. I have used an ipad gen 3 and an ipad mini and both were about the same. None of the phones I have used get out to 400m at all.

    I wont be able to tell you that until I upgrade my phone in a few weeks, but my experience with the phones is that the combo cards do not work as well as the ipad's dedicated wifi cards. I've tried quite a few so far and my best experience is with an android tablet I get out to 450m and no other device can do this without modification.:)
