Vodafone R215 4G Mobile WiFi Hotspot Review

Vodafone R215 LTE Mobile Wi-Fi Router is the successor to the Vodafone R210 router. The device is manufactured by Huawei and again technically similar to the Huawei E5372 4G LTE Category 4 Mobile Hotspot, where Vodafone has naturally customized not only the exterior but also the firmware. Vodafone R215 Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot is a new LTE Category 4 Mobile Router, which allows data rates of up to 150 megabits per second for downstream and up to 50 Mbit/s for upstream. All three LTE Frequency bands used in Germany (800, 1800 and 2600 MHz) are supported.

 

Replaceable battery and memory card

 

Just like almost of the LTE surf sticks, the R215 mobile Wi-Fi router can be common to insert a microSD memory card. The data stored on it could be shared to all devices that are connected to the hotspot R215 under request. Compared to other Vodafone LTE hotspot, Vodafone R215 has a special feature; it is the removable battery that can be replaced quickly. The R210’s battery can’t be removed or replaced. Unfortunately, the capacity of 1780 mAh is not very high, which can keep continuously operating up to 6 hours.

 

 

 

Technically speaking, a modem chipset of Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon is included in the Vodafone R215, which not only supports LTE with up to 150 Mbit/s, but also works on DC-HSPA+ network in the UMTS, and the EDGE/GSM network are backward. If the Vodafone R215 is working in areas with poor reception, user can be strengthen the signal through two external 4G antennas; through the two ports, the R215 Hotspot will even support MIMO in LTE network.  

 

The Vodafone R215 LTE hotspot router will come soon in Germany on the market; the prices are not yet known. But if you like HUAWEI brand, it would be better to take HUAWEI E5372, the E5372 is SIM unlocked and would support most of 4G networks and 4G operators in Europe and Asia. Here now, the HUAWEI E5372 is available on www.4gltemall.com . If you can’t wait to enjoy the 4G 150Mbps, HUAWEI E5372 is a one of the great hotspot for you.

Vodafone R212-Z LTE MiFi Router Review

Vodafone has unveiled the R212-Z 4G LTE router recently. The device is a small, portable wireless router (MiFi) with an integrated battery. As you can see the "Z" in the name, the Vodafone R212-Z is manufactured by the manufacturer ZTE and is the counterpart to the Vodafone R210 MiFi router, which is manufactured by Huawei and had been sold for many months. Both devices are very similar technically, however, there are still some differences between them.

 

LTE Category 3 and DC-HSPA+

 

On the technical side, Vodafone R212 router provides a modem chipset from Qualcomm, which is LTE category 3 supporting up to 100 megabits per second downstream. For upload, up to 50 Mbit/s data transfer speed is possible under LTE networks. In the UMTS mode, the data accelerator DC-HSPA+ is used, which could reach up to 42.2 Mbit/s downstream and 5.76 Mbit/s upstream.  

 

The integrated wireless module operates on the 802.11b/g/n and allows up to 10 wireless devices to access the mobile Internet. The configuration is done via the web interface as usual; alternatively, the Vodafone Mobile WiFi app or the display can be used. On the display, the most important information such as battery level, network strength, data volume and the number of connected WLAN devices are displayed.  


Strong battery and connectors for external antenna

 

The integrated 2800 mAh battery should allow 8 to 10 hours of run time, which is comparable with other LTE mobile hotspots such as the Huawei E589 or telecom Speedbox LTE mini (HUAWEI E5776). A special feature of the two connectors for external antennas can be connected to LTE MIMO antennas. In most other mobile routers, only one antenna connector is available, so that no MIMO function is guaranteed. Charging via microUSB, the port is on the side of the Vodafone R212. Also located in the device now, there is MicroSD slot in the Vodafone R212, which allows you to make data available on the network.
