For the mobile router, users usually require two things: easy to use and high-speed data connection. To meet higher requirements for network connection, the Chinese manufacturer ZTE had presented a new 4G mobile hotspot to the market. The model number is ZTE MF65+. The name is similar to its predecessor ZTE MF65, but they had different design.

 

The ZTE MF65+ 3G MiFi converts a 3G mobile connection into a Wi-Fi network. To insert a SIM card in the ZTE MF65+ 3G Mifi and then the ZTE MF65 3G+ MiFi start a Wi-Fi network. You can then make your tablet, laptop or smartphone connect to this wireless network and enjoy an internet connection. For example, if you have an iPad without 3G, after connecting with the WiFi from ZTE MF65+, the iPad would be online outside the door.  

 

And the ZTE MF65+ 3G MiFi can support up to 10 WiFi devices simultaneously, your family or friends may also possibly on the internet (of course only if you give them the password for the Wi-Fi network). Moreover, there is no software to connect required to connect with the WiFi network!

 

 

The ZTE MF65+ 3G Mifi is supplied in a white version, and has an impressive industrial design. The OLED display shows the signal type, signal strength, battery status, Wi-Fi mode and more.  With ZTE Mobile WiFi app, it is very easy to manage ZTE MF65+ 3G Mifi. For example you can remotely control WiFi on or off, check the battery level and signal strength, read messages and find all connected devices.

 

 

According to the specifications from ZTE, the MF65+ allows to download data at a maximum speed 21.6Mbit/s and upload speed to 11Mbit/s. Of course, these speeds refer to "laboratory conditions". In real network condition, you may not fulfill this speed, but you will get fast enough speed for surfing.

 

 

ZTE MF65+ has a removable battery of 1500mAh, which is charged by using cable with the micro USB (as the typical smartphone). With full battery, ZTE MF65+ can keep working for 6 hours for data transmission, while it can stand up for days up to 300hours according to the manufacturer. With occasional use of the network you do not have to worry about charging your router. When connecting the MF65+ router to your computer, you can transfer files from an SD card, which can be placed in the router. You don’t need use additional software to do that.

Huawei E5180s-22 4G WiFi Router for Bouygues 4G Box

The French network provider Bouygues Télécom offers a 4G data plan for areas with poor ADSL coverage. The plan details has been using available especially in the areas eligible for this offer. The 4G data was offered to improve Internet reception for ADSL subscribers in poorly covered areas.

To do this, the operator proposes a 4G "Box" with a SIM card and an "unlimited" monthly data plan. The 4G Box is actually the Huawei E5180 LTE Cube, which is a 4G Wireless Router and working with the 4G SIM card. To look at it more closely, the LTE router provide WiFi signal with an Ethernet connection.

 

 

Basically, the 4G router is praiseworthy for underserved users, especially with an unlimited monthly data offer. However, this offer is accompanied by many restrictions that greatly reduce the notion of unlimited internet BOX, although it is important for users to provide better internet experience.

First, you have to be eligible for the offer. The offer only includes data, excluding the Voice and of course the TV. The Huawei E5180 LTE router is not mobile, so user can’t take it outdoor for holiday or weekend activities. Bouygues reserves the possibility of limiting the bit rates in video download to 2 Mbps if necessary.

The 4G+ is not available. The "BOX" Huawei router (LTE Cube E5180), was widely distributed by operators as part of data offer, especially by Orange at one time. The E5180 router only supports the 4G category 4, so is limited to a theoretical rate of 150 Mbt/s for download and 50 Mbt/s for upload. It’s not bad to compensate for a very bad ADSL speed, but damage for a so-called "widely" 4G+.

The Huawei E5180 supports WiFi 802.11 b/g/n but is limited to 2.4 GHz. The 5GHz is not available. If the model is  Huawei E5180s-22, the supported bands are 4G LTE Band 1/3/7/20/38 (FDD 800/1800/2100/2600 MHz), and it supports up to 32 wireless users simultaneously. An RJ45 port and an RJ-11 port are available for WAN/LAN connection and telephone.

 

Huawei 4G WiFi Cube E5180 Package details

 

However, the solution of the LTE link via 4G Mifi routers is a good alternative for underserved areas in ADSL connection but correctly covered in 4G, the required condition is an adequate antenna infrastructure and backhaul Fiber capable of absorbing many connections with a large flow, a LTE router serving one or more PCs not the equivalent of a smartphone.

 

Actually, there is new LTE router available which is similar to Huawei E5180, and with higher specification, which could supports LTE-A network and faster downstream connection. The new model is Huawei B618, which is a LTE cat.11 router, you could check more details about if on www.4gltemall.com .

Huawei Honor 9 Hands on

If you ask for a recommended smartphone with budget price, we would recommend the Honor 8 among the Huawei brand. The device was introduced in the summer of 2016 and offers a very good price-performance ratio. For a few days now the successor Honor 9 is available in Germany (we had introduced it here). It costs similar to the predecessor and optically has not done much, but the technology inside has been brought up to date. Basically, it is a Huawei P10 in another appearance and without Leica camera technology. Today we will see why the Honor 9 can be recommended for conscience to buy.

 

 

The Honor 9 is packed in a white cardboard box, the body colors are silver and blue. Later, a black version is also to be added. The silver version was provided for the test. The silver device has a very nice "shine effect" on the back, as can be seen in the photos, but fingerprints are super fast visible. In the packaging, we can find there is a hard plastic cover and of course a USB cable besides the device itself. As a connection, USB Type C is used; the power supply supports the Huawei QuickCharge technology, so the device can be recharged very quickly. A headset is not supplied.

 

 

Good first impression

 

The display is very nice bright and colors strong and true to nature. The full-HD resolution is absolutely sufficient, really not more needs with the size of about 5.2 inches. The fingerprint sensor has moved to the front in comparison to the Honor 8 and at the same time also serves as a home button. We find the positioning with the Honor 9 is very good, especially since the sensor also works very reliably and fast. In addition to the fingerprint sensor, two touch buttons for the multitasking menu and the back button have been placed, the assignment of the buttons can be customized to suit your personal preferences.

 

 

The camera also makes a good first impression. Honor 9 uses a dual camera with a 12 megapixel RGB sensor and a 20 megapixel monochrome sensor. Thanks to the HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset, videos can finally be recorded in 4K resolution; the predecessor did not go yet.

Body: light and shadow

The body of the predecessor Honor V9 is especially rounded on the back towards the sides, whereby the Honor 9 should lie better in the hand. Now you can stand to glass backs as you want, we find them but always a bit slippery and not as nice as metal body. This is also the criticism of the Honor 9, it feels in the hand not as good as for example a Huawei P10 or an Apple iPhone 7 (both metal body). But it’s very successful about the reflections on the back: depending on light incident, the case looks darker or lighter.

 

 

First Conclusion

The Honor 9 is a good and consistent development to the Honor 8. The technology was updated, the internal user memory doubled from 32 GB to 64 GB. The dual SIM function is of course also on board again. With the multiple color options, we suppose most users would find what suit them. The Honor 9 is recommended for daily use if you don’t have many high requirements on the mobile phone.
