HUAWEI E5372 150Mbps 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile WiFi Hotspot Review

We are glad to inform the wireless users that Huawei released a new 4G 150Mbps LTE mobile hotspot. The model is Huawei E5372 for LTE category 4. Today, let's have a look what the LTE cat4 mobile WiFi could bring us.  

 

The Huawei E5372 LTE Cat4 mobile WiFi was first presented to public a one month ago on MWC 2013. This time, it's in white color. In our memory, black color is the classic color for Huawei E5 Mobile WiFi. Per the official saying, Huawei E5372 is the smallest LTE cat4 Mobile WiFi. So even E5372 is in pocket size, it's still much smaller than its predecessors, such as Huawei E589 Mobile Pocket WiFi and Huawei E5776 LTE Cat4 Mobile Hotspot.      

 

There is a 1.45 inch TFT screen which will show the important information for Huawei E5372, it indicates the network signal strength, connection status, users connected, remaining battery, operator and SMS. There is only one button for power on and off. The one-button operation is very convenient for user, and it's friendly for user experience. These features are almost the same as Huawei E5776, the predecessor of Huawei E5372.  

 

 

We found the platform of Huawei E5372 is not Qualcomm chipset, it's Huawei own Hisilicon V7R1. But the battery of Huawei E5372 is only 1780mAh, which is only a little bit more than half of Huawei E5776 battery. The Huawei E5372 could be charged via USB through USB interface.      

 

Like other LTE Category 4 Mobile WiFi, the Huawei E5372 could support maximum download speed up to 150Mbps on FDD network and 112 Mbps download speed on TDD network. The upload speeds are 50Mbps for FDD and 10Mbps for TDD. And the Huawei E5372 supports WiFi 2 * 2 MIMO and WiFi. The WiFi spectrums are 2.4GHz and 5GHz. There are two external antenna connectors in the body of Huawei E5372.

 

 

 

There is another feature we have to mention that the Huawei E5372 could quick boot in 5 seconds, we are not sure whether the HiLink technology is applied in the LTE Cat4 mobile Hotspot, but the boot time is so short that it will highly improve the user's experience. Huawei E5372 is compatible with the usual operation system such Windows and Mac.  

 

We believe there will be many variant models for Huawei E5372, and we will review them in future. To check more new 4G LTE gadgets on www.4gltemall.com

What’s the Difference Between HUAWEI E3331 and HUAWEI E369?

At the CES 2013, we found Huawei released a new 3G USB stick, the model number is Huawei E3331. The appearance of E3331 looks like E369, but there must be something different from the two models.  

 

Huawei says Huawei UltraStick E3331 is the world's smallest USB data card, which is very light and thin. It's said that E3331 is the best partner for Apple Mac Ultra book. Perhaps Huawei is following the trend for mobile devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and electronics, to make them thinner and lighter. But we remembered that Huawei also said Huawei E369 is the world's slimmest data card, and then what's the difference between the two brother models?

     

 

The Huawei E3331 and E369 both support HSPA+ download peak speed up to 21.6Mbps. They both support 3G UMTS/WCDMA network 900/2100 MHz, Huawei E369 seems more powerful because it could work on five UMTS/WCDMA 850/900/AWS/1900/2100MHz, which means Huawei E369 could work on more 3G networks, especially with the 3G operators in Japan and USA.  

 

 

 

They both don't support the Micro SD memory card, which should be limited by the slim body space. However, Huawei E3331 incorporates HiLink technology, which helps Huawei E3331 get connected to network in 15 seconds. And the advantage of HiLink is that no driver is needed to install and user can manage the modem via Web UI. With HiLink, Huawei E3331 would auto real the SIM card, auto setup the parameters and auto connect. So this should be the key feature that different from E369.  

 

 

What's more, Huawei E3331 also supports IPV 6. As we know, here now, there is only few models that could support IPV 6. So Huawei E3331 should be the first 3G modem to support IPV 6. And around the February 2013, HUAWEI E3331 would be available in Philippines, and it’s expected this would be available for more operators.

This is the easy setup and configuration of HUAWEI E5332 Mobile WiFi. Hope this will help most of the users who are in trouble. These steps are also applicable for HUAWEI E5331 Mobile WiFi.

But before this setup, user must confirm that the SIM card operator could provide the 3G UMTS bands at 900/2100 MHz, which means if there SIM card is running on the band 850/1900 MHz, it’s incompatible with the device. Or it can only work on 2G network.
