Difference Between ZTE MF910 and ZTE MF91D 4G LTE Router

Just like ZTE 4G LTE USB modems, ZTE 4G LTE mobile Hotspot looks the same in appearance, but there are some difference between these models. ZTE MF910 and MF91D are two 4G mobile pocket router that looks the same.      

 

Today, we will have a Review of the two similar 4G Pocket WiFi Router. As we know, the ZTE MF91D 4G hotspot has already been presented to public for operators in many countries. It seems ZTE MF910 WiFi hotspot seems not as popular as MF91D right now. But after we review the two MIFIs, you may change this idea.

 

Appearance  

 

As we can see, the two mobile hotspots look very similar, we suppose the manufacturer ZTE use the same design appearance for MF910 and MF91D. There is only one button on the front of device, below the screen. There are WPS button, MicroSD card slot and external antenna connector at the side of the body. And one more USB interface for battery charge.   The SIM card slot is in the inner part of the body, user must open the back cover and remove the battery to insert SIM card.        

 

UE category and Link Speed    

 

ZTE MF910 and MF91D are both LTE category 3 mobile router, as the typical feature of Cat 3, the mobile 4G router could support maximum download speed up to 100Mbps, and the peak download speed could reach 50Mbps.   What's more, the 3G UMTS and 2G GSM/GPRS networks are backward. When working on 3G DC-HSPA+ network, the peak speed could reach 42Mbps. So when user goes to somewhere 4G network is not available, the 4G MiFi could auto switch and work on 3G network in high speed.  

 

 

 

Networks Bands  

 

This should be the core difference between ZTE MF910 an MF91D. Because this decides where they could work and which operator they would support. The ZTE MF91D could support 4G LTE Band 8, Band 3 and Band 7 (900/1800/2600MHz) while ZTE MF91D would support the three bands and Band 20(800MHz). With this specification, they both could roam in most European countries. But in some specific areas, ZTE MF91D may be unable to work on 4g Network. For example, if user uses the MF91D in remote area far from downtown where the 4G band 20 is deployed, it may not connect to 4G and switch to 3G network.    

 

It may not occur on ZTE MF910 because it supports the most popular three LTE bands in Europe areas. So unlock ZTE MF910 could fully replace MF91D. Someone may ask, then why the two models exist simultaneously? It's a good question, usually, the more bands a UE decide could support, the more expensive it is. So ZTE MF91D is in lower price than MF910. And some operator didn't adopt the LTE band 20, it's unnecessary for them to order a device with this band supported.    

 

By the way, almost all the LTE mobile WiFi Hotspot could support up to 10 WiFi users to access Internet and surf, including the ZTE MF910 and MF91D.       In conclusion, ZTE MF910 4G hotspot is more powerful than MF91D, but user could buy budget MF91D per the actual situation.

Difference Between ZTE MF93E and ZTE MF91D 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Router

Following the commonly deployment of 4G LTE network worldwide, more and more 4G terminals are demanded by the operators. As one of the important vendors, ZTE had gained many business plans from the operators and its wireless gadgets are also very popular. ZTE MF93E and ZTE MF91D 4G LTE mobile hotspot are two models for 4G LTE networks.    

 

Sometimes, most customers may know the model number of the UEs. But they don't know whether the 4G modems or 4G routers would work with the providers in their countries. Today, we will have a review of the two models ZTE MF93E and ZTE MF91D.  

 

 

Network Frequency Band  

 

 

ZTE MF91D 4G Hotspot is earlier available in same countries, it's mainly European 4G networks.

And the 3G UMTS & 2G networks are backward compatible.            

 

ZTE MF93E 4G Mobile Router is a LTE dual-mode (TDD & FDD) WiFi Hotspot. It supports TD-LTE band 3 & band 7 (1800/2600MHz) and FDD bands 38 & band 40 (2300/2600MHz). Based on this specification, MF93E hotspot router is more suitable for the 4G networks in Asia and Middle East areas, such as Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, China etc.. Just like MF91D, ZTE MF93E dual-mode TDD/FDD hotspot could also works on 3G UMTS 900/2100MHz and 2G GSM/GPRS networks.  

 

 

 

 

Appearance  

 

The appearance of ZTE MF93E and MF91D looks not the same. MF93E is in the design of horizontal, but MF91D is in vertical design. To make the device more user-friendly, the both have only one button in the front.

ZTE MF91D 4G LTE Pocket WiFi Hotspot Review

Smartphones are the ideal way to access the Internet on the go, but when you want to connect more WiFi device and help a friend to access internet, things seems bad. In these cases we have to use a mobile hotspot, which provides quick access to the Internet for more than one device at a time. This time I am getting to know more detail of ZTE MF91D 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot that could connects to the Internet via a super fast LTE/4G network.

 

Last time we introduced the 3G HSDPA access point ZTE MF80, which is quite similar to the new version. Of course, the main difference is that the model MF91D hotspot is for LTE/4G network.

 

 

Appearance of ZTE MF91D

At first glance, ZTE MF91D Hotspot reminded me those nice rounded tip cell phones, which were quite common and popular one. The 4G hotspot is pleasant, easy to stow in the pocket. The front side has a simple square color display that shows the status of network connection. Below the screen is a big button, when working, it flashes of blue light. On the left side we find a slot for microSD memory card  at the side the MicroUSB connector for charging. On the other hand, there are two connectors for external antenna and in the middle of them, there is a WPS button. ZTE MF91D is made of plastic, when first use, remove the back cover and the battery, below is the slot to insert the SIM card of normal size.

 

 

ZTE MF91d Settings

To access and use the access point ZTE MF91D, computer could get connected through the USB cable or do a wireless all together. In the first application, the easiest way is by using the cable, especially if you've got a new SIM card that is locked with a PIN code. When connecting to a computer, your MF91D hotspot offer installation of software that simplifies the process of setting and place a shortcut to the settings page (we checked it also works on Mac OS X). Usually, the MF91D hotspot could auto configure and get connected after SIM card is plugged in.  

 

 

Once you have your device connected to the access point, either via cable or via WiFi, you could open a web browser by typing the title http://m.home/ or http://192.168.1.1 (the default password admin ). On the home page, you have an overview of the various settings links and an overview of the data usage. If you do not have special requirements, you can leave most of the settings alone, but usually you need to change your password to something that you will easily remember.

 

 

Advanced users could setup detailed security and configure network settings. In general Wi-Fi settings, you can define the maximum number of connected devices. Hotspot ZTE MF91D supports up to 10 devices simultaneously.

 

ZTE MF91D Hotspot in practice

 

In the past few days, I've tested ZTE MF91D access point in different situations. I tested it in the open air, in a meeting with two laptops and smart phones, when at home, up to six devices get connection at the same time and each time the Internet works fast without interruption.  

 

 

 

Speed is of course just like cellular phones, it depends on how far you are from the base station. The occupancy of cells can affect the signal quality. The battery should support 6 hours of continuous use, which was confirmed by my tests.    

 

Who is it for?

 

If you use the mobile internet mostly with your smartphone, you probably do not need mobile access point. If you often find yourself on the road even with a laptop or tablet without a SIM card, the ZTE MF91D 4G hotspot is more attractive choice because it has a relatively long life battery, and it is extremely easy to use. It can be used even in small office or home to connect multiple users at the same time, it supports up to as many as 10 devices at a time. What is most attractive, ZTE MF91D could support maximum download speed up to 100Mbps, so any connected users could surf internet in very high speed.  

 

 

Of course, there is not only ZTE MF91D 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, many other brand 4G Mobile Routersare available, welcome to check more on 4gltemall.com .
