Netgear AirCard 810s Review

Netgear is known as a leader in the world for mobile connections and has distinguished itself in this field producing various portable 3G/4G devices, which are highly appreciated by users. In the series of wireless aircards, Netgear presented aircard 781s, 782s, 785s, and 790s and the Sierra wireless’s aircard 760s, 762s an 763s. And Netgear doesn’t stop here. New models with upgraded technology become available as time goes.



We got the new modem Netgear AirCard 810S for a long time and we present our views today. It is a Wi-Fi router with the possibility to use with 3G and 4G by your SIM card (in the format mini). On the top, we find a single physical button to switch on and to awaken the display. Once turned on the front screen you will light up and from there you can manage almost all settings, thanks to a convenient touch panel or the two keys (always touch) present alongside.

What’s more, the presence of two connections for external antennas and a removable battery (the SIM card holder is located under it) are very useful for users. If the Netgear aircard 810s is working at some places with weak signal, it’s better to connect 4G LTE MIMO antenna with two TS-9 connectors to improve the signal and surfing performance. The removable battery can provide an option for users to use spare battery.

Signal reception on both 3G and 4G are excellent for long trips by train, and the signal was stable for a long time. We have many devices connected to our Netgear AC810S router using the password supplied, but it can be changed with ease. The display gives you lot of information simultaneously: the connection status, remaining battery power, the network name, password, data consumed since the last reset of the counters and days remaining to next renewal.

After enter in the web interface, we can see three columns: WiFi, Messages and Settings. The first allows us to change the Wi-Fi network settings, such as name, password, or even activate the network in 5 GHz(2.4 GHz as default ) or a network for guests. You can also check which devices are connected. And it also presents WPS and the ability to increase or decrease coverage.

 

The settings for the Aircard 810s portable router can also control the brightness and screen timeout, the network preference, APN, and airplane mode. What most surprised us, however, is the autonomy of this device. With 2-3 connected devices and an normal mobile use, we found a decrease of about 10% battery every hour spent, which is a pretty good result.

This modem Netgear Aircard 810s, is now available at www.4gltemall.com with unlocked version and various accessories such as external antennas. The price is a little bit high, but it is understandable considering that the aircard 810s as a top range of portable 4G modem. With good battery life, good stability performance, information-rich display and connectors for external antenna, Netgear aircard 810s is still one of the best portable 4G routers. Only the high price and lightweight plastic body are disappointing for potential users.

 

Huawei P10 and P10 Plus Difference

At the end of February 2017, Huawei presented the two new smartphones Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus at the MWC. Only a few days later, the two phones are already available at first dealers. We already had the opportunity to take the Huawei P10 in our hand and to test briefly, in this article I would like to describe our first impression of the Huawei P10 and, of course, a short overview of the technical data. In addition, we share the images from Huawei about the new phone, in which it presents you the details of the Huawei P10 and also the differences between P10 and P10 Plus!




Huawei P10

The Huawei P10 would be available soon in the colors black, blue, silver and gold. We could see the gold version; this version left a very positive impression. The body is completely gold, a visible frame is not available through the metal design. The display glass is slightly rounded to the sides, which makes the device very handy. It’s in extremely strong similarity to the Apple iPhone 7, which is the first expression when hand the phone. But this should not be a disadvantage, because like the iPhone, the P10 can convince with its case on full line and even offers some advantages: there is a 3.5mm headphone connector and the camera is completely integrated in the case. Nice detail: the power button is red colored like the predecessor Huawei Nova and looks particularly beautiful in connection with the gold case.

The internal memory of the Huawei P10 is 64 GB and can be expanded with a MicroSD memory card, the memory measures 4 GB. As a processor, the HiSilicon Kirin 960 is used, the same model is already used in the Huawei Mate 9. Of course, again, a fast LTE modem is on board, according to Huawei, LTE category 11 is supported, ie up to 600 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 MBit/s in the uplink.

The battery of the Huawei P10 is 3,200 mAh large and cannot be changed by the user, which is very common for current flagship smartphone. Huawei supplies a power supply with quick charge function so that the battery can be recharged very quickly. As a connection for charging and data transfer, USB Type C is used, wireless charging function is not available in the Huawei P10.

Huawei P10 Plus

The Huawei P10 Plus is larger than the P10: 153.5 x 74.2 x 6.98 mm are the dimensions, compared to 145.3 x 69.3 x 6.98 mm for the P10. Moreover, it is about 165 grams heavier than the P10. The reason for the larger dimensions is the 5.5 inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels, while the P10 “only” offers a 5.1 inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels. The processor is the same as the P10, but the memory is somewhat larger with 6 GB and also the internal memory space is 128 GB twice as large as the P10.

The 12 megapixel dual camera of the Huawei P10 Plus is slightly better than the P10, which applies to both the front and the rear. So the P10 Plus has a f1.8 aperture, so more light should be on the sensor than with the f2.2 aperture of the P10. The 8 megapixel front camera of the P10 Plus also offers an autofocus, but the P10 is only a fixed focus. As with the predecessor model Huawei P9, the camera was developed in cooperation with the German company Leica. In a first test, the quality of the P10 camera in bright environments was very good, but in dark environments, the effect is not as good as expected.

Below are the main difference between Huawei P10 and P10 Plus:

Huawei B525 4G LTE Cat6 Router Review

More and more network providers in the world are upgrading their LTE network to LTE-advanced with carrier aggregation technology. Consequently, LTE terminals are demanded by the carriers and end users. As we had introduced before, the Huawei E5186 LTE router is the world’s first LTE-advanced router for LTE Category 6, and it was available in the market for almost two years.

Here now, huawei release a new LTE Cat6 router, the model number is Huawei B525. Supporting LTE Cat6 up to 300Mbps download speed, huawei B525 4G Router could connect easily with up to 64 users at top speed to the internet. So Huawei B525 router could be always accessible for you and your friends in office or at home for high speed internet access. The B525 router can be connected using a wireless LAN or Ethernet cable.

 

As we know, the Huawei B525 is already available for the network provider “Play” and “Telenor” in Europe. And the specific variant model number is Huawei B525s-23a. From the model, we can’t tell which LTE frequency bands are supported by the B525 router. But as a sub-model for European market, we suppose it should support LTE Band 1/3/7/8/20/32/38(800/900/1500/1800/2100/2600MHz,TDD 2600MHz). The router is also backward with 2G and 3G network.

From the appearance, we suppose the Huawei B525 comes from the Huawei B315 and of course get upgraded on technical specifications. In addition to 4 RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, there is one RJ11 phone port. On the back, two connectors for external LTE antennas are covered by a cap. The connector type is SMA. Here we have two external LTE antenna for Huawei B525 as below. The powerful antennas ensure the best possible reception.

Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AC1900 – thanks to LTE-Advanced

With the AC1900 Codename “Nighthawk”, you get an all-round carefree package for modern broadband connections. By using a micro SIM card equipped with a LTE data tariff, LTE speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s can be achieved in the download and a maximum of 50 Mbit/s in the upload. This corresponds to LTE-A of category 6 (CAT6). In order to realize these bandwidths, two-band carrier aggregation with up to 40 megahertz is used. The equipment of the used LTE bands is for the use in European areas without gaps. The most important 4G frequencies in Europe, 800 Megahertz, 1,800 Megahertz and 2,600 Megahertz, are supported by the Nighthawk. If the LTE reception is not sufficient, backward bands can also be used on 3G (UMTS). Here the band 1 (2,100 Megahertz) and 8 (900 Megahertz) are used.

Netgear Netgear R7000 provides powerful hardware

The hardware platform of the LTE router reads quite usable. For example, a 1 gigahertz clocked dual-core processor is working inside the device with 256 MB of RAM. In addition, 128 MB Flash-ROM was integrated. In addition to the connection via WLAN, four LAN ports can also be used for the network connection. In addition, there is an additional port for connecting a cable or DSL modem. A 1.5 meter long Ethernet cable is included to get started. Unfortunately, external LTE antennas cannot be connected.

The cable-connected connection possibilities for end devices such as USB sticks and printers were implemented with 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. WPA and WPA2 with PSK provide the necessary security during data transfer with the WLAN connection, as well as two firewalls (SPI and NAT). An LED on the Nighthawk signals the current operating status. The WPS button for an uncomplicated and fast connection from the terminal to the router is also on board, in addition, the AC1900 is VPN-capable.

Maximum 1.9 Gbit/s bandwidth and open source

 

What is special in the Netgear AC1900 Router is the possibility to use both an LTE connection as well as cable-bound Internet. Due to the combination of WLAN frequencies 2.4 GHz (with 256 QAM support) and 5 Gigahertz, WLAN ac is theoretically possible up to 1.9 Gbit/s. The high data rate is achieved by combining WLAN at 2.4 and 5 GHz, beamforming technology and triple MIMO via the well-visible paddle antennas. The use of two Internet connections, in this case LTE/UMTS and fixed network, prevents a connection termination. If the 4G signal is weak, the fixed network takes over, the cable-bound interface is interrupted, the mobile radio jumps in. Further safety functions, System optimizations or setting possibilities can be supplemented by programmers thanks to Open Source. You can find the firmware for the AC1900 R7000 “Nighthawk” and other routers.
