The highlight of the Huawei E5771 Mobile WiFi is the huge 9600 mAh internal battery (non-removable) that provides up to 38 hours of operating time.

HUAWEI E5771

On the other hand, the E5771 has a small LED’s on the slice, which indicate the essential information, one for the data transfer activity, the other 4 indicating the status of the battery. In addition to these LEDs, the power button on the upper face and having the initials “Hi  ” comes alive with different colors of green, orange and red, indicating the reception quality of the 3G/4G signal.

Of course and as usual, all the indications SSID, Wifi password and Barcode to flash for a smartphone, are located under the hood of the Huawei E5771. Still under the hood, there is a SIM card slot in micro-SIM format and the slot for a micro-SD storage card (up to 32 GB), for storing data. The connected devices with E5771 could share the data in the storage card.

HUAWEI E5771

To configure and administer the Huawei E5771 Mobile Hotspot, user can log in a web interface accessible not only from a PC, but also access from the Hi-Link application for smartphone, which gives you access to essential functions.

 

 

On one side of the Huawei E5771, there are 2 USB ports, one in full size is designed to recharge a device such as a smartphone, thanks to its 9600mAh battery, and the other one is in micro-USB allowing charging of the E5771 hotspot.

HUAWEI E5771

The Huawei E5771 Hotspot comes with its charger, but also with its USB cable to connect the micro-USB port to the charger or the port of a PC. The special feature of this cable is that it also serves as a carrying strap for the case. It’s not stupid to have it always with you.

 

HUAWEI E5771

Huawei E5771 Specifications

 

Huawei E5771 is a 4G Category 4 router, allowing you downlink of up to 150 Mbps and uplink to 50 Mbps. The supported frequency bands are:

* (4G) LTE FDD 850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100MHz

* (4G) LTE TDD 1900/2300/2500/2600MHzMHz

* (3G): DC-HSPA+/HSPA+/HSUPA/HSDPA 2100/1900/1800/1700/900/850/800MHz
* (2G) GSM / GPRS / EDGE 1900/1800/900/850MHz

HUAWEI E5771

It is therefore compatible with almost all the operators over the world. And there are many variant models for various network frequency bands such Huawei E5771s-852, Huawei E5771s-856, Huawei E5771h-937 etc.. The Wi-Fi standard is 802.11 b/g/n; 2.4GHz (no ac 5GHz) , and it supports 10 simultaneous wireless users. The battery is given for 38 hours of operation and 500 hours in standby, it is not removable.

 

The HUAWEI E5771 is now available at www.4gltemall.com for a price of $ 189USD. There are 3 colors are available, White, Black or Gold.

 

Conclusion

For some users, the absence of an LCD is not good, since it is compensated by various indicator lights; the Huawei E5771 presents a rather nice aesthetics and especially a huge battery that offers an excellent practical function.

With the powerful network compatibility (not totally) and at an affordable price of $ 189, the Huawei E5771 is a good compromise, knowing nevertheless that it offers neither the category 6 to 300 Mbps nor WiFi ac 5 GHz. If you want a 4G mobile WiFi router with screen or with the latest LTE category 6 carrier aggregation technology, you may check the Netgear Aircard 790s or Huawei E5786 or E5787. They are the latest new models with advanced technology, but it’s a pity, they don’t have the large battery as E5771.

 

How to Update Huawei E5786s-32a Firmware

This article describes how to upgrade the Huawei E5786s-32a firmware to 21.297.03.00.309 firmware version. This update activates the Wi-Fi Extender function that is not implemented in the firmware of all E5786 routers, although it is mentioned in the technical specifications.

huawei-e5787-e5787s-33a-mobile-wifi-touch-1

There are 2 main novelties for this E5787 compared to its predecessor Huawei E5786.

 

  1. A large 2.4-inch screen is now in front, but most importantly, it is tactile and gives access to operating and configuration menus. This functionality gives it the nickname of WiFi touch. The screen of Huawei E5786 can only show the connection status and data consumption, if users want to operate the setting for WIFI and password, they have to log in the web page to setup.

 

  1. Unlike the E5786, the battery of Huawei E5787 is removable. This 3000mAh battery gives 12 hours of autonomy to this router. The battery of E5786 can’t be removed.

For the rest of the characteristics, we can find more features as below:

1. Capacity of 10 simultaneous Wifi users.

2. Possibility to connect a PC via the micro-USB port.

3. The two TS-9 connectors for an external antenna.
4.

Four LTE Category 6 Mobile Hotspots to Recommend

LTE networks are becoming the mainstream available in many countries and areas. With LTE technology, users can enjoy high speed surfing, online games or watching videos etc..The good news is that this is not the end. The LTE technologies are also evolved to LTE advanced and it’s said the 5G network is under test now.

huawei-e5786-netgear-790s-zte-mf970-alcatel-y900-front-logo-and-screen

Currently, many carriers are trying to upgrade the LTE Category 3 or 4 to the latest advanced Category 6 with carrier aggregation technology (in short: CA). With LTE-advanced technology, the LTE data rate could be improved to double faster than that of the current LTE cat4. Theoretically, the peak download speed could reach 300mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. Here comes a question, which device could support the LTE Cat6 advanced networks and achieve this speed? Today, we would recommend a few similar mobile WiFi hotspot supporting LTE advanced carrier aggregation technology from vendors.

huawei-e5786-netgear-790s-zte-mf970-alcatel-y900-back

Huawei E5786

Huawei E5786 should be the first LTE Cat6 mobile WiFi available in the market with Huawei own Hisilicon chipset. It has three branch models: E5786s-32a, E5786s-62a, E5786s-63a. The Huawei E5786s-63a and E5786s-62a are for the network providers in Australia and they had new name “Telstra Wi-Fi 4G Advanced Pro X” and “Optu 4G WiFi modem” respectively. There are white and black colors available. But you can get the unlocked version from www.4gltemall.com for global use. Like its predecessors Huawei E5573 and E5577, the branch models could support different LTE frequency bands for different carriers and areas. Up to 10 wireless users could connect to Huawei E5786 and surf at high speed. There is a LCD screen in the front with power button. The back cover could be removed, but the 3000mAh battery is built-in. The SIM card and Micro SD card slots could be seen when back cover removed. There are two TS-9 connectors for external 4G LTE/3G antenna.

huawei-e5786-netgear-790s-zte-mf970-alcatel-y900-back-cover

Netgear Aircard 790s

Netgear Aircard 790s is the second LTE cat6 mobile router available in the market. Based the predecessor Netgear Aircard 782s, it looks similar to the 782s aircard. Unlike the Huawei E5786, the screen of Aircard 790s is capacitive screen, where user can operate and do simple settings for the mobile hotspot. The power button is on the top side, the bottom side has two connectors for external antenna (TS-9 type). The USB port is also special with 3.0 port, but with the device, Netgear provides the USB 2.0 cable. The back cover could also be removed, so as the battery. The battery capacity is 2930mAh. The SIM card slot could be seen after battery is pulled out. No slot for Micro SD card. With Qualcomm MDM9230 chipset, Aircard 790s could support up to 15 wireless WiFi-enabled devices. With the touchscreen, Netgear Aircard 790s is attractive for many users in practical functions.

ZTE UFi MF970

Following the steps of the above two vendors, ZTE released the UFi MF970. It looks common like its predecessor MF910. MF970 was already available for Vodafone 4G contract. The front middle is the screen to indicate the connection status. User can do simple settings through the power and menu button. The power and menu button is on the top side. The back cover can’t be removed, so the battery can’t be changed. And there are also two connectors for external LTE/3G antenna. Like Netgear Aircard 790s, there is no slot for Micro SD card. Also with Qualcomm chipset MDM9230, ZTE UFi MF970 could support up to 14 wireless users. The battery is only 2300mAh, which is much lower than the above two similar hotspots. The design of ZTE MF970 looks cool. Other features are very similar to the competitors above.

Alcatel One Touch Y900

Alcatel One Touch Y900, also called Alcatel Link Y900 4G+, looks special in the appearance. The signal bars on the front side looks cool but are not really interesting. In all the four LTE cat6 mobile routers, the Y900 is the only which doesn’t have a LCD display. There is only a power button on the body with the WPS button on the other side of the button. The back cover could be removed for changing the battery and inserting SIM card and SD storage card. The big battery is interesting, which has 3600mAh capacity and not only working long time, but also charge other electronics to work like a power bank. What’s amazing, the Alcatel Y900 could support up to 32 wireless users to access internet. In the four devices, Alcatel Y900 seems to be the most powerful mobile hotspot. I personally like this one more.

 

Check more specification and details about Alcatel One Touch Y900: http://www.4gltemall.com/alcatel-link-y900-4g-led-mobile-hotspot.html

 

The above four LTE cat6 mobile hotspot should be the most popular for LTE advanced networks. You need prefer to the vendor brands, prices, or the functions. We suppose you would choose the right one for the high speed surfing on the go!

As a new 4G mobile Router, Huawei E5771 is similar to Huawei E5770 in the technical specifications. It’s a LTE Category 4 mobile hotspot which could achieve peak download speed to 150mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. Unlike Huawei E5770, there is no LED screen on the front, only Huawei logo and the power button on the front. The touch feel of the body is good. On the back, the number indicates 9600mAh battery capacity, which is almost double of the E5770 battery capacity.

huawei-e5771-back

On the edge at the power button side, there are USB In & Out ports for 5V/2A. The USB out port is to charge other electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets etc while the In port is for power charging for the Huawei E5771 itself. At the top side edge, there are 5 small indicators, one for data transfer and the rest four for power status. The total design of Huawei E5771 is very simple and classic. I personally like it!

huawei-e5771-indicators

The large battery is built-in the Huawei E5771 WiFi plus, user can open the back cover from the groove at the left side corner. On the inner body, we can see more information about the device, such model number, power output and input, IMEI & S/N number, battery capacity, WLAN network (SSID) name and password, admin IP address and password. There is also a QR code which can be scanned and connect to the device through smartphones. It’s also showed the Huawei Technologies Limited and Made in China.

huawei-e5771-open

 

The button has a “Hi” word, which is also a LED indicator. It indicates different network status by colors. In Green, it means network signal is very good, but in yellow, it means weak signal. If in red, there is no network service available, and if in blue, it means the device connect the network via WLAN.

huawei-e5771-side

There is a SIM card slot and Micro SD card slot available in the Huawei E5771 Mobile WiFi Plus. The E5771 MiFi uses Micro SIM card. Users can connect to the device and share the files and documents in the SD card. The Reset button is also available beside the two slots. Users can reset the Huawei E5771 to factory default by pressing the button.

With the Huawei E5771, the manufacturer also provides the USB cable and power adapter. The design of the USB cable is interesting, it can be folded and be the sling for Huawei E5771.

huawei-e5771-back-label

In summary, the Huawei E5771 has two advantages than other similar 4G mobile WiFi hotspots:

  1. Large battery capacity of 9600mAh, which can keep working for long time and charge other electronic devices as a power bank
  2. It can be used in around 30 countries/areas without any limit for high speed network connection

huawei-e5771-sd-card-and-sim-card-slots

It’s a practical mobile router for global use. But the mainstream of the mobile hotspots is with touch screen, where user can operate or setup the router via screen. It’s a pity Huawei E5771 doesn’t have this feature. If you prefer a mobile router with touch screen, you may check the Huawei E5787 LTE Cat6 mobile hotspot. Anyhow, Huawei E5771 is still a very good 4G pocket router and highly recommended!

Huawei E5377 4G Mobile Hotspot Test

Mobile routers are now very fashionable. It is true that we can connect to the network using smartphones and tablets, however, there are still many users who having computers would like to use mobile routers to connect to the Internet. Since many users expect more from the mobile routers, the manufacturers of mobile routers supplied new models with new functions. Huawei E5377 4G hotspot is one of them.

huawei-e5377-3

The Huawei E5377 router is a real pocket router. The manufacturer has equipped it a LED display, and next to LED display on the right side is a big switch. The top edge of the body is the menu button, while at the bottom microUSB slot and two antenna connectors covered flap are placed. Remove the rear cover, plug in a valid SIM card and insert the battery. Then we can get connected with internet.

huawei-e5377-4

The Huawei E5377 hotspot is very light and fits comfortably in your hand. The body has a special groove that facilitates its opening. The whole is well matched; there are no gaps, no creaks. The white color looks elegant, but I have a feeling that quickly loses its charm after a few trips in your pocket. Unfortunately, the white body gets dirty easily turning to gray. Especially since the material used is rough, making it easier to absorb dust and pollen. I personally like the black color, which is also recommended by Huawei.

huawei-e5377-6

As can be seen, Huawei E5377 router can handle both 3G and LTE. The difference between these technologies laid primarily in the transfer data rates. In the case of LTE, the speed can be several times higher than in the 3G (LTE, currently can achieve up to 55 ~ 85Mbps), the theoretical standard specification provides for even more than double the download speed to 150Mbps. The E5377 router can install a memory card of up to 32GB. This way we can use it, for example. As a memory stick, the contents of which we can share with other users. And maximum of 10 users could get connected with the E5377 hotspot through WiFi. The equipped battery in E5377 already wrote. The manufacturer says that it is sufficient for 6 hours operation. Reading the rest of the text, you will find out how the E5377 performs.

huawei-e5377-7

Let’s see the user interface. The Huawei E5377 router can be setup in two ways: through the menu and the power buttons on the wireless router, or through the Web browser. The latter method (or browser) is definitely easier to use while offering more options, which is recommended. Just run the router, enter the password for the network (the default SSID is HUAWEI-E5377-XXX) that are on the label under the battery, enter the address into your browser: 192.168.8.1 … and that’s it. You can also download the Huawei Mobile WiFi APP for Android or iOS to setup the Huawei E5377 Router.

The interface is very easy to use, although I admit that it could work a little faster. Some pages refresh slowly, but enough to do common settings. The application is very simple, and consists of a main menu in the upper part of the window, pop-up menu on the left and the main window where you set the individual parameters. The launch window is equipped with three large buttons, which can enable or disable the router, stop cellular data transmission, and enable/disable WiFi. At any time by selecting Statistics, you can check the amount of data sent and received, check out who is connected to the network, etc. Prepared menu also allows you to send and read SMS messages.

The most important item on the menu are the Settings. This is where you configure network access, sharing WiFi, Ethernet settings (one can use the USB – LAN), etc.. The manufacturer has not forgotten the safety at different levels, we can verify your MAC Address, IP, etc. There are of course several custom functions such as the ability to prioritize users, the ability to define a virtual server. We also have a NAT, UPnP, DMZ … if you think this is not enough, but we need not everything if we use the router as a temporary Internet source during a weekend trip out of town. Actually, I would like to recommend use the main stationary router access to the network at home rather huawei E5377.

The already mentioned Menu and Power buttons also enable us to navigate through it – to select various options and approve them. Using this software, we can switch the operation of the device mode 2.4GHz to 5 GHz. We can also check the settings of the wireless network, such as its SSID, password and IP address of the router, you can start the WPS function and set E5377 to the operation extender whether to enable or disable data roaming. We also have the ability to reset the router. What interesting is the ability to display 2D code (QR Code), with which we can quickly enter the security code network, or run applications that allows device management from a smartphone equipped with Android system. The menu is simple, fast, and easy to understand and do settings.

Summary
Huawei E5377 looks elegant, fits in your pocket, and is easy to use. Here now there are many new successors available with better technologies such as Huawei E5786 or Huawei E5787. If you don’t have high demand for the pocket WiFi, huawei E5377 is recommend as a budget mobile partner!

Huawei E5377 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Some years after the launch of LTE, there is already a wide range of mobile LTE routers with integrated battery. Especially the Chinese manufacturer Huawei, who is clearly the market leader in this segment, offered many models. But not every user requires the best and most expensive equipment, therefore the Huawei E5377 is now a very compact, lightweight mobile LTE hotspot available, which is still very good technical equipment.

Huawei E5377

Smaller and lighter 4G hotspot

Weighing approximately 80 grams, the Huawei E5377 is very light and is very good in the hand or transported in a pocket. With long time use, it becomes quite warm, but the operating temperature is always at an appropriate level.

On the front of the Huawei E5377, between the Huawei logo and the power button, there is a square display, where a variety of information such as reception, network technology, the spent data volume are shown clearly. The display is not permanently lit to save energy, it only turns on when you press the power button or a wireless device is connected.  Furthermore, you can find a menu button on the top edge, with which you can make a few settings in combination with the power button. Thus, for example the ability to display a QR code through which smartphones or tablets enter into the App Store by scanning the code. There Huawei HiLink app can be downloaded. With this app, further adjustments can be done to the E5377, such as change the wireless network name or password.

Special feature: wireless repeater

In addition to the controller via the Huawei HiLink app, an access to the Huawei E5377 via any browser is possible. The default IP is 192.168.8.1. The web interface responds quickly and provides the most important settings. A special feature is the wireless repeater function, with which you will be able to log the Huawei E5377 into an existing wireless network and this order can be used as an Internet access. The advantage of this solution is, for example, that you can save data volume in mobile network as soon as you use the repeater.

Fast LTE to 150 Mbit/s

The integrated modem in Huawei E5377 supports the three wireless standards GSM (2G), UMTS (3G) and LTE (4G). Depending on the wireless technology, different speeds are possible. So LTE category 4 up to 150 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s upload speeds are possible. In the UMTS network, speeds are up to 42.2 Mbit/s accessible via DC-HSPA+. Good to know: The Huawei E5377 router is compatible with all major European LTE frequency bands and supports quad-band GSM and dual-band UMTS in many countries for worldwide use.

Huawei E5377

The reception is good both in the LTE network and the UMTS network. Even in weak regions, you can often surf more easily with the E5377. You’d better put the E5377 router close to the window or even outdoors, because there the reception is usually best. By the way, there are two connections for external antennas; you can amplify the reception with an external LTE antenna, thus increasing its speed. The important thing is that the antenna cable has plugs type CRC 9. These adapters are often called “pigtail” and are available in all good electronics stores.

WLAN at 2.4 and 5 GHz

A maximum of 10 devices can be connected with Huawei E5377 simultaneously via WLAN. Another device also can connect via USB. The wireless speed is up to 300 Mbit/s, on request, instead of the 2.4 GHz frequency band, WLAN in the region are running at 5 GHz. This is particularly appropriate when the 2.4 GHz band is overloaded or interference. The wireless frequency can be changed in the software of Huawei E5377. The WiFi range was very satisfactory in the test. The 2.4 GHz signal was still usable by two walls at a distance of about 8 meters. Unfortunately an external wireless LAN antenna cannot connect.

Up to 6 hours operating time with battery

The model battery of Huawei hotspot E5377 is easily replaceable by the user. It has a capacity of 1500 mAh and provides an operating time of about 6 hours. Unfortunately, no power adapter is included so that one is forced to connect the E5377 4G router to a USB port on the computer or on an existing USB power adapter. Compared to other devices, such as the Huawei E5786, the operating time is quite short – but it is possible to buy a second battery, thereby extending the duration.

Conclusion

The Huawei E5377 has consistently convinced with good performance in the test. The Internet connection is very fast, the receive and transmit performance is good and the WLAN transmits on request at 5 GHz. Also very pleasant are the compact size and very low weight. Only the battery could be considered a point of criticism, as compared to other mobile wireless hotspots with large battery such as Huawei E5770 and E5771. The Huawei E5377 is now available at www.4gltemall.com. The unlocked version could be used worldwide without any limit.

From the above frequency bands, users can choose the appropriate one for their market per the carriers at their locations or countries. If you would take the E5573 MiFi for oversea travel or use in multiple countries, you would better to clarify the network frequency bands of the destination countries and find the correct variant model.

 

Wireless Features

The Huawei E5573 4G hotspot router allows the connection of up to 10 additional devices, such as smartphone, laptop, tablet or game console. It supports the 802.11a/b/g/n. The modern wireless ac is not integrated again, which we find quite a pity.

Huawei E5573

 

External antenna

Like other Huawei 4G mobile hotspots, the Huawei E5573 has two TS-9 jacks for connecting an external LTE antenna. Thus, if the E5573 is used in areas with difficult reception conditions, the signal can be improved by connecting a 4G antenna. Here we have one smart antenna for Huawei E5573 to recommend: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna-two-ts-9-connector.html

Battery

One important matter for a mobile router of course is still the battery. The Huawei E5573 has a capacity of 2300 mAh for about 6 hours of operation and 300 hours standby which is enough according to the manufacturer. In practice, you may found the battery is not really enough on intensive use. In this case, the similar model Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro or Huawei E5771 WiFi Plus may be better options because they have large power capacity for much longer working time.
