RX10: controlling with smartphone lasts only 15 secs

smartphone: LG G Flex, AT&T service;

After about 15 secs of control time, smartphone disconnects
& forces me to re-enter RX10 password to get 15 more secs., etc.
It happens whether or not I've taken photo within 15 secs.

Sony Store employee smartphones (2) worked with my Sony RX10 AOK;
it was their opinion, some setting on smartphone needs changing, but as
to specifics, they couldn't solve; am concerned when I go to AT&T store
they will never have encountered this issue & also won't solve...

Also, my smartphone has no wi-fi issues with any other source,
e.g., home modems, hotel wireless, etc.

Anyone, anything, please!!!??

Specific message I get on smartphone at disconnet:
