The latter problem is where a mesh can help with that. What makes it a mesh, rather than than a collection of access points, is in the way it handles smooth transfer from point to point, while your device still thinks it's constantly attached, and there's no fighting over which point to connect to. Doesn't replace your router - you just disable the router wifi, connect one of the access points to the router ethernet, and off you go. If the phone thing does bug you, might be worth looking at one day.
