Nicely explained... https://www.solwise.co.uk/wireless-5.htm
The US FCC version of 5GHz Band C is much lower powered as well. Looks more and more like they just didn't check whether the standards were different around the world and didn't test it outside the US.

i have bought many cell phones this year, ,mate 10 pro, Lg v30, htc u11, s9,note9, note 9 and the conlusion is that 5GHZ on go pro works perfect with all samsungs flagships i tried.
I live in Greece and i buy from European amazon stores, all of the phone are for european markets.
So i believe it is a deal between go pro and apple/samsung to work only on their phones. I cannot explain why they work perfect in europe that u say it is forbidden and we take no answer from go pro.
It is obvious the do not want to reveal something...

So you can use the GoPro app? Can you download clips to a PC?
It would be helpful if you downloaded an app like "wifi analyser" and shared what frequency band and channel you are connected to.
I think you will see you are using those high frequencies around 5.8GHz which no one in Europe uses. If your phone can do this, great!

as i've said before in this thread, but assume I was ignored because it didn't fit in with your theory. I'm in the UK & 5ghz works fine on my Hero 7, connects perfectly to my iPhone 5, 7 & Samsung A6 tablet

GoPro need to fix their firmware, or change hardware if it's a hardware limitatiom

I think it's also worth mentioning that being in the UK and using this channel you are breaking the law. You are required to apply and pay for a license to used the reserved channel 161.
Channel 161 is band C and the following restrictions apply.
a) Band C can only be used for outdoor wireless
b) Band C can only be used for fixed wireless access (FWA) points (e.g point to point or point to multipoint links)
c) A light license is required for operation and must be purchased from Ofcom.
d) All hardware must conform to DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) standards and DFS must be enabled
Have fun paying £50 a year for a license.
