Long ago, in days of old, when Android was but an Ice Cream Sandwich, a feature was introduced which allowed you to “Avoid Poor Networks”. When the feature was introduced there was much rejoicing as Android would automatically kick you off that dodgy network with no internet connectivity and back onto a stronger network. However, those whose onboarding process involved creating a temporary Wifi network were much maligned, because they had to tell users to disable this functionality while they were setting up their fancy new hardware.
At some point around Android 5 or 6, “Avoid Poor Networks” was sidelined by a much more useful per-network notification informing you if your network “has no Internet access”. There was much rejoicing once again because users could still avoid bad networks, but also set up their fancy hardware much more easily.
The LIFX App still pops up a big old warning on connection though, even though I haven’t had a phone with the option to disable “Avoid Poor Networks” for about 4 years…
tl;dr - the Network Problem warning does more harm than good. Perhaps it’s time to get rid of it?
I’ve just set up 4 new lights by hitting “Continue” because I know there’s nothing in Settings to change.
