Huawei E5776 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile WiFi Hotspot Test

A mini router is a small device that connects to the mobile network available, whether 2G, 3G or 4G, and forwards the connection via regular wireless networks (WiFi / WLAN). Min router is running on battery power, and it is an excellent solution for the person on the go and need network access everywhere on multiple devices - without the need for separate mobile subscription and receiver for each unit.

 

 

 

Previously, we tested the solution with 4G mini router from HUAWEI, the model number is HUAWEI E589. It offers highest 4G speeds up to 100 Mbps. But there is a new alternative mini router now: HUAWEI E5776 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile WiFi Hotspot

 

Huawei Mobile WiFi E5776

 

The two mini routers have many common features. The size is approximately the same, and they are both in small size, but thicker than a smartphone. There is one button operation and a small display that shows the status of the connection, battery level, and how much data is used since the last time you turned on the mini router.

Both of them could support battery charging via a micro-USB and there is slot for microSD cards.

 

 

 

But Huawei E5776 supports download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, and can handle up to ten WiFi users or devices simultaneously. Juar like HUAWEI E589, Huawei E5776 router also has a fixed battery of 3000 mAh. Both provide a service life of up to 6 hours. Huawei E5776 also has an app for iOS where you can see consumption, battery life, manage data on micro SD card and change the settings.

 

 

Installation

Our sample came without a SIM card, so we tested with the same SIM card that came from the operator Telenor. To get started you need to connect the router to a PC using the USB cable. The driver is installed automatically, and a configuration program is in the flash memory of the router.  Here are the icons of HUAWEI E5776 web management pages:

 

Home page

 

 

 

WLAN Basic Settings

 

 

 

SD Card sharing page

 

 

Then you just have to log on as the router and use the 4G network or other wireless networks that may be available.

 

Performance

 

In use on Telenor's network, performance and coverage of HUAWEI E5776 were measured in the same way as HUAWEI E589 4G LTE Mobile WiFi. The Limitations corresponding with the date rates are not in hardware but in the infrastructure and provider limitations. However, we could reach only speeds of 35 Mbps down and 30 Mbps up, even though, it is not something to complain about. This was the fastest we measure. Taking the subway the other hand, or move into the city, or deep in office buildings covering an entire city block, the rate drops noticeably. Sometimes we lose 4G and may even have to make do with 2G connection (also known as "Edge"). The same results happened throughout the country, when you are in sparsely populated areas.

 

iOS App

 

If you have iPhone or iPad, you can also download a free app from Huawei. This allows you to check status, data usage, battery status and change settings.

 

 

 

The app controls most.

The memory card can store photos, music or video that will be available to all users on the network. If you have a 32 GB memory card, you can store a lot of entertainment when the family at the cottage or on a trip, without having to depend on the services of the mobile network. Alternatively, there is space capacity for many presentations and other data if the HUAWEI E5776 is for work usage.

 

Conclusion

 

This mini router HUAWEI E5776 is an excellent solution, and it works on all mobile networks and mobile network solutions. You can also buy it separately, so you can choose the service itself. , we reiterate our recommendation: That a mini router provides a great improvement in your browsing experience compared to 3G when move on the surface of a city with developed 4G network, there is no doubt. While Huawei E5776 LTE Cat4 Mobile WiFi works great as a single router in a household with one person, but there is more to talk for share. Data quota may soon be empty if you are an active user.

Will you buy Huawei E589 or Unlocked Vodafone R210 4G Pocket WiFi?

It has been a long time since Huawei E589 and Vodafone R210 available in the market. But there are still many users who haven't gotten their 4G mobile WiFi.  

 

Today, we will have a general review of the two similar 4G LTE mobile WiFi. Huawei released Huawei E589 at the beginning of 2012, then Vodafone customized this factory model per its preference, then Vodafone R210 was presented to public.

   

Vodafone R210 4G Pocket WiFi was first available in European areas for Vodafone 4G LTE network.  With Vodafone logo below the screen, it looks cool. The classic combination of red and black color makes Vodafone R210 attractive. However, following the factory model of Huawei E589, Vodafone R210 has only one external antenna connector, which may not be a good solution for MIMO. The battery is inserted and cannot be detachable. But the battery is rechargeable with capacity of 3000mAh, which could support the R210 to work for 6 - 8 hours.

 

   

 

Here comes a question, what's the key difference between Huawei E589 and Vodafone R210? Are they just different from the logo? It's a good question.  

 

Vodafone R210 is for the commercial 4G LTE network from Vodafone in Europe. So when Vodafone ordered R210, it set R210 to support its deployed 4G LTE frequency band 800/1800/2600MHz. However, Huawei E589 is the model in Huawei brand, so it's not limited to any network, per the specification, we found it would work on 4G FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz, which covers almost 80% 4G FDD network available now. Based on good reputation in 3G mobile WiFi, Huawei E589 4G LTE pocket WiFi will lead the market demand.

     

So Huawei E589 would support more operators over the world, unlimited to Vodafone. Per current sales record, Huawei E589 is the most popular mobile WiFi for 4G LTE network, especially in Asia and Europe. The good news is that there are unlocked Vodafone R210 available in 4gltemall.com , it means Vodafone R210 could not only work with Vodafone 4G network, but also support the 4G FDD network operators in other countries or areas. And the price is better than Huawei E589, so if you like Vodafone R210, and don't want contract, to buy an unlocked Vodafone R210 from 4gltemall.com is a good idea.

HUAWEI E589 VS SIERRA 762s 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot

Following the 4G network is more and more popular, 4G gadgets are becoming more and more common. Many users get their own 4G gadgets and enjoy the changes brought from technologies. In the 4G gadgets, there are dongles and pocket WiFi. Today, we will have a review about the most popular 4G LTE mobile WiFi Sierra 762s and Huawei E589.  

 

   

 

Somebody may ask why are the two models and not others? The answer is simple; because Sierra 762s and Huawei E589 cover the most commonly deployed 4G frequency bands in Europe and Asia-pacific region. We will talk it later.    

 

Huawei and Sierra Wireless are two top LTE vendors all over the world, and they are always competing with each other for LTE share. Perhaps due the protect from US government, Huawei cannot enter US market, on the contrary, Sierra Wireless is the local US vendor, which supply telecom products mainly to North American and South American. Consequently, Huawei cooperates with many operators in Europe and Asia, but it cannot open the US gate. It’s political matter, not our topic today.  

As the competitor, Huawei E589 and Sierra 762s incorporate many same features, which depend on the network status in target markets.   From the appearance, Huawei E589 follow the classic Huawei E5 mobile WiFi design while Sierra 762s is also in good design. They both support 4G LTE FDD 800/1800/2100/2600MHz, Huawei E589 seems more powerful because it support on more frequency FDD 900MHz.  

 

With both supported download speed of 100mbps, the connection stability should the main concern from users. Based on many years professional experience, they are both reliable hotspots with good quality. Under same network condition, we have tested that the average speed is almost the same.    

 

As the same feature of 4G LTE MiFi, Huawei E589 and Sierra 762s could support up to10 users to share the network simultaneously.   Other features are almost the same, easy to take, pocket size. So in our opinion, they are same good 4G mobile WiFi, if you don't care about the brand, both Huawei E589 and Sierra 762s are worthy to have one.
