    I seem to be having the opposite effect, when I am near a saved hotspot it switches to that automatically, however my issue appears to be when that hotspot flakes out that the phone is still seeing the strong base band signal but the wifi is no longer functional so the phone doesn't switch to 4G, it just sits there running on wifi with no connection to the outside world so nothing works. A reboot didn't fix it because it fired up and went to 4G first then saw the wifi base band was stronger so it switched to the dead wifi. Not fixing my problem, the only thing that fixed it was restarting the hotspot. I would think there would be a little bit of code that actually tested the wifi connection with a sample bit of data to see if it was actually communicating

    I've seen this behaviour as well. No biggie for me to turn off WiFi - swipe down from home screen and disable WiFi.
