Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 Released

Huawei had released a new 4G LTE Mobile WiFi a few days ago in Suadi Arabia, named Mobile WiFi Pro 2, which is to replace the current Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 on the market. As a 4G pocket router with practical functions, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 comes too later than that we expected.

 

 

Like its predecessor Huawei E5770, the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 combines the pocket router and power bank function into one device. It can not only provide wireless network through WiFi & Ethernet cable for high-speed internet connection, but also charge other electrical devices.  

 

Appearance  

 

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 upper surface features a high-definition OLED screen with a 0.96 inch diameter. And it is decorated with artistic patterns and a unique contrast in the used materials, while maintaining a user-friendly operating button. The Mobile WiFi Pro 2 uses a metal frame in the middle and also provides a stylish leather handle that caters to the tastes of users and provides the port for charging smart devices and for Ethernet cable. There is also Micro-SIM card slot and extra slot for Micro SD card of up to 32GB.

 

 

LTE Advanced (Cat.6) Support

 

With Huawei Hisilicon LTE Cat6 chipset, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 could support LTE-Advanced networks on LTE Category 6, which means it could achieve peak download speed to 300mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps on LTE networks. The speeds are almost double of that of the first generation Huawei Mobile WiFi E5770 on LTE Cat.4 networks. Of course, they are both backward with 3G UMTS/DC-HSPA+ and 2G GSM, which would be available once LTE network is missed.  

 

WLAN Improvement

 

Huawei also improved the wireless function for Mobile WiFi pro 2 to support maximum up to 32 WiFi-enabled devices, while the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro supports only 11 users simultaneously. The WLAN features 802.11a/b/g/n/ac on dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz, but the Huawei E5770 had missed the ac standard and had only single band WiFi.

 

 

Large Battery Capacity of 6400mAh

 

The battery of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 is 6400mAh, it’s totally a common mobile power bank which can not only keep itself working for long time and also charge other terminals such as smartphones, Pads in case of power off. However, the capacity of 6400mAh may not be the best, because we know Huawei also had one Mobile WiFi named Huawei E5771 Mobile WiFi Plus, which has the large battery to 9600mAh. And other features are very similar to E5770.  

 

Easy Connection without password

 

By using Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2, a connection can be established and devices can be identified using NFC technology or QR code and Huawei’s application HiLink without the need to search for the network and enter password to join the Wi-Fi network.

 

 

Here now, the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 is not yet available on the market, but we are keen to get this new 4G pocket router. We will show the test report once we get it.

Huawei E5787 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Huawei E5787 is a new mobile LTE Hotspot which has been released last year and now it’s available for many network providers in Asia and Europe. This is the successor to the popular Huawei E5786 from the year 2014. As the predecessor, the E5786 modem supports up to 300 MBit/s in the downlink (LTE category 6), technically speaking, not much has changed. The new Huawei E5787 has the large touch screen on the front, with which the hotspot is particularly easy to use. In the test, you will see the detail features of the Huawei E5787 and the specifications.

Appearance

 

The Huawei E5787 is available in black and white. The device is slightly smaller than the predecessor Huawei E5786 and works overall quite inconspicuous. The large touchscreen display is visible on the front, but an LED indication is not available. At the top of the hotspot is the power button, there is a micro-USB port as well as two TS-9 antenna connectors. In addition to the power supply and USB charging cable, it also includes a small hand loop in the package, which can be attached to the router.

The first impression is quite good. After inserting the SIM card as well as the battery (nano-SIM cards with adapter on MicroSIM work safely) you have to start the Huawei E5787 over a long press on the power button. If you do not use a completely exotic provider, the LTE Hotspot configures itself completely automatically and after entering the SIM PIN you are already online.

Technical specifications

 

The Huawei E5787 is sold worldwide in several variants, which support different frequency ranges. The Huawei E5787s-33a is available in Europe and is compatible with all frequency bands that are important in Europe, but can also be used on other continents. Unfortunately, with the chipset has not changed in comparison to the predecessor, there is still "only" LTE Cat6 with 300 MBit/s. Many smartphones such as the Huawei P10  or the Samsung Galaxy S8 are already offer at least 600 MBit/s in the downlink with higher-level chipst, and the Netgear AirCard 810 touch screen hotspot is also providing faster service.

Operation & Touchscreen

 

The E5787 is Huawei's first mobile WLAN router with touch-screen operation. The display is 2.4 inches in size and provides a color display. The plastic cover over the display reflects quite strongly and the display quality of the display is not comparable to that of current smartphones, but much worse. You can recognize all the contents well, but when you look at the display, it is somewhat brighter. But the response of the screen is good, and usually one seldom uses the display at an LTE Hotspot.

The speed of the software and the response speed of the touchscreen could be convincing. Huawei offers a much better experience in the E5787 hotspot than Netgear AirCard 790 or AirCard 810 Hotspot. Also, the software is quite appealing, without losing the functionality from the eye.   On the start screen, all important functions are displayed by default. This includes a large time display including the date as well as the status bar Information about reception, WLAN and battery. Access to further functions or the settings is obtained by unlocking the E5787 with a "Swipe" to the left. In the main menu, there are the 6 menu items "Connection Wizard", "Energy Saving Mode", "SSID and Password", "SMS", "Settings" and "Info". In addition to the touchscreen operation, a web interface is also available, which can be accessed via the IP address 192.168.8.1. In addition, the Huawei HiLink app is also available for iOS and Android, with which a configuration is also possible.

LTE up to 300 MBit/s

 

Theoretically, the Huawei E5787 with its LTE Cat6 modem reaches speeds of up to 300 MBit/s in the downlink. For this purpose, the hotspot bundles two frequency bands by carrier aggregation technology, provided that the mobile radio network also makes this technology available. In the test, speed tests were carried out with SIM cards from Vodafone and Telekom, but only in the frequency range around 800 megahertz, in particular to be able to test the reception and the speed in remote areas. The Huawei E5787 made a good figure here, especially in comparison with various smartphones, reception is often better and the data rates were slightly higher. In case of doubt, an external antenna can also be connected for the purpose of improving the reception; the necessary two TS-9 connectors are hidden under a side cover.

WLAN without Extender

 

Devices can be connected to the Internet either via the USB port or via WLAN. The cable connection worked in the test without problems, but most users will probably use WLAN. The maximum speed over WLAN is 867 Mbps, up to 10 devices can be connected at the same time. The Huawei E5787 supports both the frequency range around 2.4 GHz as well as the 5 GHz, the simultaneous use in the dualband mode is unfortunately not possible. In the test there was no problems with the WLAN. It is nice that the WLAN access data are no longer displayed in the display like on some previous Huawei hotspots, but are only displayed on demand, so as the important settings such as WLAN SSID, WLAN password. A major disadvantage of the Huawei E5787 compared to many other LTE hotspots: a so-called WLAN extender or WLAN repeater is missing. The predecessor E5786 had still integrated the function, with which one can use an existing WLAN network as Internet access, but in the E5787, Huawei disabled the function for unknown reasons. It’s really a pity.

 

Huawei-E5786 VS Huawei E5787

 

Battery & Other

 

The battery of the Huawei E5787 has a capacity of 3.000 mAh. The battery can easily be replaced by the user, which is an advantage compared to the predecessor model Huawei E5786. So you can buy a second battery or in the case of a battery defect, quickly replace it even outside the warranty period. In continuous test operation with an average of 3 WLAN devices connected simultaneously to 2.4 GHz, the run time was around 10 hours. The E5787 offers the possibility to also be used as an external battery ("Powerbank"), which can charge an empty smartphone with power off. For a full charge, it should not be enough with most current smartphones, so the Powerbank function is therefore more suitable for the emergency.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The Huawei E5787 is a very good LTE hotspot. The touch screen operation was well implemented and the software was designed appealing. The modem performance was good in the test and the maximum speed of 300 MBit/s should be sufficient for most users, but it is disappointing that Huawei "only" installed an LTE Cat6 modem and the E5787 has no great technical improvement. Also some practical functions are missing: the simultaneous spark on 2.4 and 5 Gigahertz is not supported and support of a maximum of 10 devices at the same time in comparison with the competition also somewhat obsolete. Nevertheless: if one can ignore the few criticism points, the Huawei E5787 a very good mobile LTE hotspot to recommend.

Huawei P10 New Flagship Smartphone Review

The Huawei P10 is available since March 2017 in market and offers a very good reputation including Leica dual camera. We had the opportunity test the P10 in detail now. What I liked especially and where there is still potential for improvement; you will read it in this review. The first thing to notice is the design after opening the package. Like the predecessor model Huawei P9, the Huawei P10 smartphone is almost completely made of metal. The front display is covered by a 2.5D glass, the P10 phone is well in the hand. Thanks to the extremely narrow frame surrounding the display, the Huawei P10 is already partially filigree. Due to the slightly rounded body, Huawei P10 appears thicker than it really is.

 

 

Fingerprint sensor & buttons

 

Unlike many other Huawei smartphones, the fingerprint sensor was not positioned on the back, but on the front in the Huawei P10. Personally, I think this is a very good thing, because you can easily unlock the P10 on the table. The sensor works very reliably and fast-paced, here other manufacturers like Apple and Samsung can still learn from Huawei!

 

 

The keys I also liked very much, in all respects. This starts with the physical keys: these provide a very good pressure point. The only way to improve: the volume rocker should be divided into 2 separate buttons and moved to the other side of the device so that you will not confuse it with the power button. Speaking of the power button: this is red painted on the sides, which is a great eye-catcher and already was a very nice gimmick at the Huawei Nova.

 

 

The right way to switch off the software buttons and replace them with the fingerprint sensor is really good. The functions Home button, Back button and Multitasking button are replaced by different movements on the fingerprint sensor. This folds reliably and fluently and you have much more space available on the display than with the software buttons. Perfect!

 

 

Software & speed

 

In the test, the Huawei P10 run fast and could run any software without noticeable delay. The experience is not bad comparing with other brands’ high-class smartphones. As an operating system, Huawei relies on Android 7, the EMUI 5.1 interface is also very well. Huawei has listened to the criticism of some users and now also provides a so-called app drawer, ie the apps are no longer stored on the home screens, but in a special app menu, which you may already know from some other smartphones.

 

 

Regarding the technical features, the Kirin 960 chipset worked very quickly as I said, sometimes the Huawei P10 was however quite warm, if one had used the camera for long time. The phone memory is about 47 GB (64 GB officially), large enough, on request users can expand the storage by insert a MicroSD card. In some markets, the dual SIM version of Huawei P10 is not available. The Chinese market, huawei supplied the dual sim version.

 

 

The Huawei P10 supports Voice over LTE, this function must work with a telecom SIM card, as used in the test. A device with special telecom software is not necessary; the function is available with every Huawei P10. Very good! Display & Camera The display not only convinces through the extremely thin frame to the sides, but also through the very good display. Some may criticize the resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels as too low, but that is not true. The display is super sharp and who wants to recognize individual pixels, must take the magnifying glass and look very closely. The luminosity was also convincing in the test. Only the notification LED should be somewhat brighter and an always-on display, like Samsung in the Galaxy S7 series or Galaxy A3, is missing.

 

 

The biggest argument for the Huawei P10 is surely the dual camera, which was developed in collaboration with Leica. In every advertisement to the Huawei P10, the camera is thematized. But is it really as outstanding as advertising promises? The test showed that the camera definitely belongs to the best smartphone cameras. The images are sharp and true to color, the blur effect usually succeeds very well when photographing portraits or macro shooting. Also the black and white recordings with the special monochrome sensor can perform well, especially in dark environments. But the bottom line you have to say: a big difference to other top smartphones with only one sensor (eg iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7).

 

 

Top Battery

 

The battery of the Huawei P10 is 3,200 mAh strong and can allow a running time of more than 2 days on normal use. Intensive users will have to charge the P10 every evening, but it still holds longer than that of an Apple iPhone 7. The charge goes fast thanks to the quick-charge function with the included power supply.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The Huawei P10 performs very well in the test. The P10 smartphone is mature and coherent in price and compares favorably with similar competing phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the LG G6 - the P10 thus offers a very good price-performance ratio! The operating concept with the fingerprint sensor as a software key replacement is particularly well remembered. If you would like to know more Huawei smartphones, welcome to check here: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-lte-smartphone/huawei-4g-smar...
