The download speed of 150Mbps is actually enough for daily use. And Huawei E5787 price is not cheap now because it’s a new model. If you want a budget mobile WiFi, Huawei Prime E5878 is good to buy.

Summary

 

From the specs table, we can see the TP-link VS Huawei routers are very similar technically. The three mobile WiFi hotspots all could support peak download speed up to 300Mbps and upload speed up to 50Mbps with LTE Category 6. TP-link M7450 is based on Qualcomm chipset while two Huawei mobile WiFi are using Huawei own Hisilicon chipset. The two Huawei mobile WiFi both have variant models but TP-link M7450 has only one variant model, but TP-link M7450 could support maximum users up to 32 devices while Huawei E5787 and E5786 support only 10 wireless users. However, TP-link M7450 mobile WiFi doesn’t have the connector for external antennas, which is disappointing because the antenna connectors are very common in current 4G mobile WiFi hotspots. They all could be managed by APP which could be installed in the smartphone. Users can manage the mobile WiFi router through mobile phones.

 

 

 

 

In the three mobile hotspots, the Huawei E5787 Specifications seems to be more user-friendly because it has a touchscreen where users could manage and do simple settings for the mobile router. The two connectors also provide the possibility for connecting external antennas when the device is working in rural area of weak signal. But if you want the TP-link and Huawei router to support more users, the TP-link M7450 seems to be better.   Regarding the price, the latest TP-link M7450 price is not good as the old model Huawei E5786. And the newer model Huawei E5787 price is better than TP-link M7450. With more user-friendly feature, we recommend the Huawei E5787 4G mobile WiFi for you in good price and attractive features.
