Netgear Aircard 810s vs Huawei E5885Ls-93a

More and more new Huawei LTE advanced pocket WiFi routers are available in the market, which would be a powerful competitor to the 4G modem from Netgear wireless. Huawei E5885 is a new 4G pocket WiFi router at the end of 2017. Netgear AirCard 810s was released in 2016 and has already been sold in Netgear 4G Routers. Someone may ask: what's the difference between the Huawei E5885 and Netgear AC810S? Which one to buy from the two mobile routers? In this article, we will review the appearance, interfaces, specs, prices, and other features to answer the questions.

 

 

 

AirCard 810 Huawei E5885 VS Appearance and Interfaces

 

Since the Aircard 810s was available in the market for around 2 years, you may already know the Netgear AC810s, which is the world’s first LTE cat.11 mobile hotspot. On the front, there is a 2.4-inch touchscreen with “Home” and “Back” buttons at the screen side. The touchscreen allows users to do simple settings for internet connection. The power button is on the top edge side while on the opposite side, two connectors for an external antenna and USB 3.0 port are located. Like other Netgear 4G WiFi routers, the two connectors are a TS-9 type. The back cover of the Aircard 810s could be opened and the battery is removable.

 

 

Huawei E5885 may not be as well-known as Aircard 810s but it has unique features. Here now the market has only the E5885Ls-93a available. Not sure whether there will be a new variant model available in near future. The Huawei E5885 is thicker than common 4G mobile hotspots because it has a large built-in battery of 6400mAh. There is also a small screen on the front, but not touchable. The power button and WPS button are on the top edge side of the Ethernet port and USB ports. You much open the cap to see the ports. However, unlike other Huawei mobile router 4G, the Huawei E5885 doesn’t have the connectors for external antennas. The back cover could be removed but the built-in battery can’t be removed. The Huawei E5885 and Netgear Aircard 810s both use Micro SIM card size. The E5885 has also the Micro SD card slot for storage.

Summary

 

From the specs table, we can see the new Huawei E5885Ls-93a 4G hotspot supports LTE category 6 while the old model Netgear 810S supports LTE Cat.11, which could achieve almost double faster speed than that of Huawei E5885. However, the Huawei E5885 has many features that are very powerful. Firstly, the Huawei E5885 has one Ethernet port for WAN and LAN, which would provide more connection possibility, especially when the 4G connection is not available and only an Ethernet connection is available. Secondly, the Huawei E5885Ls-93a could support maximum users up to 32 users while Netgear Aircard 810s supports only 15 users. Thirdly, the Huawei E5885Ls-93a has a large battery pack of 6400mAh, which would keep working for a long time and charge other devices. The AirCard 810s also has the JumpBoost, which is to charge devices. However, the battery of 2930mAh seems weaker than Huawei E5885 battery.

 

 

However, the more advanced Netgear 810S has the latest Huawei E5885. If you need a practical 4G mobile WiFi hotspots, Huawei E5885 seems to be more powerful and useful. But if you just need a faster internet connection, the Netgear Aircard 810s is the right one to recommend.

Design & Features

The Netgear Nighthawk M1 measures 105.5 x 105.5 x 20.35 millimeters and is therefore small enough to go through as a mobile router. The case is made of plastic, with battery; the router brings a weight of 240 grams. On the top there is a circular screen that provides information about data usage, number of connected devices, connection status and battery level. The upper plastic frame contains the power button, which is also used to navigate through the various displays on the screen.

The ports are integrated into the lower part of the frame, including an Ethernet port and a USB Type A and Type C port. Both USB ports allow you to connect external media to share the files on the network of the Nighthawk M1. The Type C connector is also used to charge the battery, whereas the Type A connector can charge other mobile devices. The connectors are flanked by TS-9 connectors for optional 4G/3G antennas. When not in use, the connections are protected by a cover.


The back cover can be removed to expose the replaceable 5.040 mAh battery. Below the battery is the slot for a micro SIM card. The test also worked well with a Nano SIM card, as long as it is correctly positioned on the contact points. A microSD card slot is also included, which can be used, for example, to stream movies or other files through the Netgear Nighthawk M1.

The interior is simple and can be completed in a few minutes. In the first step, a device (notebook, smartphone, tablet) must connect to the Netgear Nighthawk M1 via WLAN. The network name and key can be found on the screen of the router. Thereafter, the control access takes place on mobile devices, at best via the Netgear Mobile App and on PCs and notebooks via the web browser.

 

Accessing the Nighthawk M1 requires entering a username and password that can be set at first login. Subsequently, only the SIM card must be unlocked by PIN and the router is ready for use. Versatile settings can be made in the app or web interface, such as whether the router is to build a 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WLAN or instead only one network should be active. In addition, the SSID and the password can be changed or a monthly consumption overview including data limit can be set up. Owners of an Arlo home security system are pleased to use the Nighthawk M1 as a base station for the Arlo cameras.

We tested the Netgear Nighthawk M1 in Vodafone LTE network. Since Gigabit LTE is only offered in a few German cities so far, we could only check how the mobile router beats in the "normal" LTE network. A Samsung Galaxy S9 connected via Wi-Fi to the router achieved 39.6 Mbps in the upload and 57.3 Mbps in the download. When we ran the speed test on a Dell XPS 13 (9360), the speed was increased to 104 Mbps in the download. The upload value was at 47.9 Mbit/s. For comparison, we ran the speed test with the same SIM card in the Galaxy S9. This could reach 85.4 Mbit/s in the download and 33.4 Mbit/s in the upload.

The Netgear Nighthawk M1 is ideal for use as a media server with its USB ports and microSD card slot. In the test, a UHD video could easily be streamed to the Galaxy S9. Only when fast-forwarding, the buffer had to be recharged, which has led to a few seconds of waiting time. For Full HD videos, streaming was possible with up to three devices simultaneously.

 

 

Conclusion

The Netgear Nighthawk M1 is the ideal companion for those who need an Internet connection on the go. In the LTE network, the mobile router provides other devices such as notebooks or tablets with fast Internet access. The set-up is easy to do and numerous settings can be made in the app. Another practical option is to use the Netgear Nighthawk M1 as a media server. You can use one of the two USB ports or the integrated microSD card slot. In addition, the USB Type A port can charge other devices. Owners of the Arlo security system can even use the router as the basis for the Arlo security cameras. The Netgear Nighthawk M1 offers many features and can certainly convince in the test. However, as a mobile WLAN router, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 price is high now.
