iPhone 5 dropping wifi

Hi,
Is anyone having issues with an iPhone 5 constantly dropping a wifi connection and reverting back to 3G? It is sitting on the desk next to a Galaxy SII connected to the same wifi connection, the Galaxy isn't having any issues with signal yet the iPhone keeps dropping it?
Thanks

Have you done the latest update to 6.0.1?

Have you checked the wireless router is running the latest software?

I'm not 100% sure but Im not sure how that would cause it? All other devices are holding the connection fine, and if you turn data off on the phone it holds the wifi. It is like it is trying to favour the 3G?

It would be part of basic fault checking not all devices work 100% the same
