Automatically connecting to a WiFi network can be a simple and useful feature, but it can be a pain when you get connected to networks with poor signals.
However, this is set to change with the new iOS 11, which will stop your phone connecting automatically to networks with lower bars. The feature was initially seen on the iOS 11 beta 4, and will stop you from getting notifications as you walk by Starbucks, McDonald's or other places where you have logged into public Wi-Fi.

However, the only annoying thing is that you have to switch it on for each network. To do this, you will need to press the small blue 'i' icon next to the Wi-Fi networks within the Settings menu and turn on the feature that appears called 'Ask to Join Networks'.
Sure it is an iPhone feature, but it is not the first time, as Samsung devices have a feature called Smart Network Switch that lets you continue to use your mobile data when your Wi-Fi signal isn't strong enough.
