Wifi on iPhone 12 not as fast as expected

I have an RBR850 with one wired satellite and one wireless satellite, all running V4.6.7.5_2.1.7

 

Via ethernet I get my expected 920Mbps download, however running a speedtest with my phone from the same server (and close to the satellite or router) I can only reach 300Mbps. I'd expected with 5GHz a figure closer to 800-900Mbps from my phone.

 

Is there anything I can do to improve this?

 

Screenshots of settings (uploading to the forum seems broken?)

Re: Wifi on iPhone 12 not as fast as expected

Is the phone connected to the RBR or RBS  and at what distance is the phone from the RBR or RBS. 

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

 

iPhones being only a 2x2 mimo antenna support, won't see anything near 900Mpbs. Even on AX mode. Mine maxes out  at 700ish range when at close range with the RBR. Far range, anywhere from 200-300Mpbs  depending.
