Huawei E5776s-601 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile Hotspot

Our site has been published several stories about 4G Mobile routers, access points and Wi-Fi with built-in cellular modems that support 3G. These equipments can be used to provide mobile access to the Internet in a variety of scenarios: working devices (e.g.: tablets) without a built-in modem, a backup channel for home, outdoor activities in the nature and on the road. We should also mention using the WiFi router can roam globally among the local operators and support several gadgets simultaneously. Thus it is possible to save much cost, as well as consume less battery.

 

 

 

Huawei E5776s-601 appearance and features

 

Today we tested another sub-model of this E5776 router family. Among the interesting features, the ability to support 4G/LTE network is most attractive one; with large capacity built-in battery, LCD screen and a wireless speed up to 150 Mbit/s is practical functions. Huawei E5776 offered several versions to the market, which may differ based on a range of cellular module. Our sample had a full name E5776s-601 and, according to the presented documentation, it supports 3G on 900 and 2100 MHz bands and LTE in 3, 7 and 40 (FDD 1800/2600MHz & TDD 2600MHz). We note that this E5776s-601 is also sold in a branded version of MTS named 821FT (only works with SIM-cards of this operator and its range if the device is SIM locked). There is user manual, power adapter and Micro-USB in the package box.

 

 

The size of Huawei E5776s-601 is 107 × 65 × 17 mm, and weight is approximately 140 g. However, we must realize that the battery is built-in with large capacity and a two-antenna configuration access point. At the same time, there is no wired port in the router. So the E5776 could be easily put in the bag and the pocket. The body is made of sturdy black plastic. There is no doubt that the frequent use in mobile mode, the surface becomes coated with scratches. However, the E5776 body is smooth and user friendly.

HUAWEI E5372 4G Mobile WiFi Hotspot Test

Since we get the Huawei E5372 recently, we have another 4G mobile router in the test now. The Huawei E5372 is the little brother of the successful Huawei E5776 4G Mobile WiFi, and offers some improvements technically compared to other models tested before. The improvements includes, for example, supporting Wi-Fi in the 5 GHz range and a repeater function. The Huawei E5372 modem is already known by many operators: it offers 2G GSM, 3G UMTS and 4G LTE (Category 4 of up to 150 megabits per second for download). Huawei E5372 is a quite cheap LTE Category 4 Hotspot, even cheaper than the Vodafone branding model (the name is Vodafone R215). Now you can get the HUAWEI E5372 on 4gltemall.com .


The Huawei E5372 4G Router comes in a small cardboard box, which itself contains a micro USB cable and a quick guide next to the device. The E5372 can get power supply directly from the USB cable when connecting it with PC, or use a power adapter to charge power. However, the capacity of 1780 mAh battery is really disappointing when most of the 4G mobile hotspots are using battery of more than 3000mAh currently.

 

 

The first impression of Huawei E5372 is good. The optional white or black plastic is dull and does not attract fingerprints, the weight is 130 grams and the dimensions are quite pleasant with a 99 mm x 62 mm x 14 mm, which is very compact for an LTE-capable device. On the front, a small OLED display is placed, which displays all the important information and also allows certain settings in combination with the power button and the side menu button.

Manufacturer: Huawei
Model Name E5372 (E5372s-32)
Technologies LTE (4G) UMTS (3G) GSM (2G)
Frequencies * 4G LTE: 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz* 3G UMTS: 850/900/1900/2100 MHz* 2G GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 Mhz
Maximum speeds * LTE: 150 Mbit/s down, 50Mbit/s up* UMTS: 42.2 Mbit/s down, 5.76 Mb/s up (when using DC-HSPA+)* GSM: 384 kbit/s (when using EDGE )
Wireless * 802.11b/g/n up to 300 Mbit/s* 2 × 2 MIMO* both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz repeater mode
Chip & Software * Chipset: HiSilicon V7R1 with Balong710 modem* firmware version: 21.221.19.00.00* Software Version: 13.100.06.00.03
Other Features * MicroSD slot up to 32 GB* 2x External antenna connector( type TS-9 )* display 128 × 128 pixels

* Removable Battery 1780mAh

 

Also on the side, there are two antenna connectors of type TS-9, so the Huawei E5372 is the first LTE Category 4 mobile Wi-Fi router with external antennas to be fully compatible 2 x 2 MIMO data transmission. Also a MicroSD slot for memory cards of up to 32GB is installed at the side of SIM card slot. Unlike HUAWEI E5776, the battery of HUAWEI E5372 is removable, user need to insert SIM card and cover the battery, then the device is working. Someone may ask where to buy HUAWEI E5372 Antenna, actually, we have already 4G LTE antenna (TS-9) from HUAWEI available on 4gltemall.com .

 

Vodafone R215 4G Mobile WiFi Hotspot Review

Vodafone R215 LTE Mobile Wi-Fi Router is the successor to the Vodafone R210 router. The device is manufactured by Huawei and again technically similar to the Huawei E5372 4G LTE Category 4 Mobile Hotspot, where Vodafone has naturally customized not only the exterior but also the firmware. Vodafone R215 Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot is a new LTE Category 4 Mobile Router, which allows data rates of up to 150 megabits per second for downstream and up to 50 Mbit/s for upstream. All three LTE Frequency bands used in Germany (800, 1800 and 2600 MHz) are supported.

 

Replaceable battery and memory card
Just like almost of the LTE surf sticks, the R215 mobile Wi-Fi router can be common to insert a microSD memory card. The data stored on it could be shared to all devices that are connected to the hotspot R215 under request. Compared to other Vodafone LTE hotspot, Vodafone R215 has a special feature; it is the removable battery that can be replaced quickly. The R210’s battery can’t be removed or replaced. Unfortunately, the capacity of 1780 mAh is not very high, which can keep continuously operating up to 6 hours.

 

Technically speaking, a modem chipset of Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon is included in the Vodafone R215, which not only supports LTE with up to 150 Mbit/s, but also works on DC-HSPA+ network in the UMTS, and the EDGE/GSM network are backward. If the Vodafone R215 is working in areas with poor reception, user can be strengthen the signal through two external 4G antennas; through the two ports, the R215 Hotspot will even support MIMO in LTE network.

 

The Vodafone R215 LTE hotspot router will come soon in Germany on the market; the prices are not yet known. But if you like HUAWEI brand, it would be better to take HUAWEI E5372, the E5372 is SIM unlocked and would support most of 4G networks and 4G operators in Europe and Asia. Here now, the HUAWEI E5372 is available on http://www.4gltemall.com . If you can’t wait to enjoy the 4G 150Mbps, HUAWEI E5372 is a one of the great hotspot for you.

The Vodafone R210 is from the Chinese supplier HUAWEI, and is customized from the model HUAWEI E589. The R210 should be a god partner for business trips. If you put his SIM card in the device, it allows up to 10 other Wi-Fi devices access 4G (LTE) network. This device could be be tablets, laptops or smartphones. The R210 router supports all three relevant LTE bands at 800 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz. Of course, there is a “fall-back” option. In other words, if LTE is not available locally, the R210 would automatically switch to the next best available network. To optimize the reception, an external antenna can be connected via TS9 connector. The Vodafone R210 is identical with the Huawei E589, except that Vodafone logo emblazoned on the front. It’s a pity they has only one external antenna connector.

As you can see from the picture, the R210 offers operator information via a small display. The display also provides information about the current signal strength, network technology used (eg LTE) and the battery status. And you don’t need worry about the battery supply, it’s has total capacity of 3000 mAh, which is even larger than most smartphones.

What’s more, the R210 is unlimited to Vodafone 4G LTE network, so if you other SIM which works on Band 3/7/20 or single one of them, the Vodafone R210 will also work well without any trouble. Since band 3/7/20 are the most common 4G Frequency bands in Europe, the HUAWEI R210 support almost all the LTE network and 3G UMTS networks in Europe. So HUAWEI R210 is one of the best potable 4G Router to surf and take around.
