Huawei P10 New Flagship Smartphone Review

The Huawei P10 is available since March 2017 in market and offers a very good reputation including Leica dual camera. We had the opportunity test the P10 in detail now. What I liked especially and where there is still potential for improvement; you will read it in this review. The first thing to notice is the design after opening the package. Like the predecessor model Huawei P9, the Huawei P10 smartphone is almost completely made of metal. The front display is covered by a 2.5D glass, the P10 phone is well in the hand. Thanks to the extremely narrow frame surrounding the display, the Huawei P10 is already partially filigree. Due to the slightly rounded body, Huawei P10 appears thicker than it really is.

Fingerprint sensor & buttons

Unlike many other Huawei smartphones, the fingerprint sensor was not positioned on the back, but on the front in the Huawei P10. Personally, I think this is a very good thing, because you can easily unlock the P10 on the table. The sensor works very reliably and fast-paced, here other manufacturers like Apple and Samsung can still learn from Huawei!

The keys I also liked very much, in all respects. This starts with the physical keys: these provide a very good pressure point. The only way to improve: the volume rocker should be divided into 2 separate buttons and moved to the other side of the device so that you will not confuse it with the power button. Speaking of the power button: this is red painted on the sides, which is a great eye-catcher and already was a very nice gimmick at the Huawei Nova.

The right way to switch off the software buttons and replace them with the fingerprint sensor is really good. The functions Home button, Back button and Multitasking button are replaced by different movements on the fingerprint sensor. This folds reliably and fluently and you have much more space available on the display than with the software buttons. Perfect!

Software & speed

In the test, the Huawei P10 run fast and could run any software without noticeable delay. The experience is not bad comparing with other brands’ high-class smartphones. As an operating system, Huawei relies on Android 7, the EMUI 5.1 interface is also very well. Huawei has listened to the criticism of some users and now also provides a so-called app drawer, ie the apps are no longer stored on the home screens, but in a special app menu, which you may already know from some other smartphones.

Regarding the technical features, the Kirin 960 chipset worked very quickly as I said, sometimes the Huawei P10 was however quite warm, if one had used the camera for long time. The phone memory is about 47 GB (64 GB officially), large enough, on request users can expand the storage by insert a MicroSD card. In some markets, the dual SIM version of Huawei P10 is not available. The Chinese market, huawei supplied the dual sim version.

The Huawei P10 supports Voice over LTE, this function must work with a telecom SIM card, as used in the test. A device with special telecom software is not necessary; the function is available with every Huawei P10. Very good!

Display & Camera

The display not only convinces through the extremely thin frame to the sides, but also through the very good display. Some may criticize the resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels as too low, but that is not true. The display is super sharp and who wants to recognize individual pixels, must take the magnifying glass and look very closely. The luminosity was also convincing in the test. Only the notification LED should be somewhat brighter and an always-on display, like Samsung in the Galaxy S7 series or Galaxy A3, is missing.

The biggest argument for the Huawei P10 is surely the dual camera, which was developed in collaboration with Leica. In every advertisement to the Huawei P10, the camera is thematized. But is it really as outstanding as advertising promises? The test showed that the camera definitely belongs to the best smartphone cameras. The images are sharp and true to color, the blur effect usually succeeds very well when photographing portraits or macro shooting. Also the black and white recordings with the special monochrome sensor can perform well, especially in dark environments. But the bottom line you have to say: a big difference to other top smartphones with only one sensor (eg iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7).

Top Battery

The battery of the Huawei P10 is 3,200 mAh strong and can allow a running time of more than 2 days on normal use. Intensive users will have to charge the P10 every evening, but it still holds longer than that of an Apple iPhone 7. The charge goes fast thanks to the quick-charge function with the included power supply.

Conclusion

The Huawei P10 performs very well in the test. The P10 smartphone is mature and coherent in price and compares favorably with similar competing phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the LG G6 – the P10 thus offers a very good price-performance ratio! The operating concept with the fingerprint sensor as a software key replacement is particularly well remembered. If you would like to know more Huawei smartphones, welcome to check here: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-lte-smartphone/huawei-4g-smartphone.html

 

 

Vodafone GigaCube – Huawei B528 LTE Router Released

A few days ago, Vodafone has officially presented the GigaCube to public with data tariff plan. The Vodafone GigaCube comes from the Chinese manufacturer huawei and the original model is Huawei B528. As the successor to Huawei E5180 Router, the Huawei B528 LTE router follows the design of E5180 cube but different in details. Of course, the technical features are upgraded as the technology develops. Technically, the Huawei B528 can reach speeds of up to 300 Mbps in the downlink (LTE Cat6), but Vodafone limits the GigaCube data rate to 150 MBit/s.



Huawei B528 Specifications

The Huawei B528 has not been sold in Germany; Vodafone is the first network operator to offer the router here. The focus is clearly on the case design in smart white plastic. But technically, the router is quite up-to-date thanks to the LTE Cat6 modem, Gigabit Ethernet and WLAN ac as the following data sheet shows.

Huawei B528s-23a LTE Router
Dimensions  105 x 105 x 181 mm
Chipset  HiSilicon Balong 722
Mobile communications LTE Cat6 (300/50 Mbit / s), UMTS with DC-HSPA +, GSM / EDGE
Frequency bands  LTE FDD: B1, B3, B7, B8, B20, B32. LTE TDD: B38
Connection Interfaces 1x Gigabit LAN (RJ45), 1x RJ11 (VoIP), 2x external antenna, MicroSIM slot
WLAN standard  IEEE 802.11b / g / n / ac (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz, 2 x 2 MIMO), up to 867 Mbps
Package Content  Huawei B528, power supply, RJ45 LAN cable, quick start guide

What interesting is that the Web Interface is probably not from Vodafone, but in the original Huawei design. The Voice over IP telephone function with the RJ11 connection should function basically, that user could use the Huawei B528 to call over the LTE network with the Vodafone GigaCube data tariff. For more practical performance, here you should wait for first user reports.

First router for LTE Band 32 (1500MHz)

Very interesting in the data sheet is also the indication that the Huawei B528 supports the LTE band 32. This is the frequency range around 1500 Megaherz. Vodafone had bought the radio spectrum in 2015 in this area and could use the tape in the future as a “supplementary downlink” to increase the capacity in the LTE network. Currently, Band 32 has not been used in Germany and there are also hardly any end-user devices supporting LTE 1500 or Band 32. The same is true for LTE Band 38, also this is so far not used in Vodafone, but is supported by the Huawei B528.

Even if the Huawei B528 router can theoretically achieve download speed up to 300 MBit/s and the Vodafone network offers even up to 500 MBit/s in the downlink in some places: the GigaCube, as customized Huawei B528 LTE router,  allows a maximum of 150 MBit/s in the downlink. Actually, Huawei had provided another LTE Cat6 router named Huawei E5186 or Vodafone B4000, which can also reach peak download speed to 300mbps. If you can’t wait the availability of GigaCube B528, you may consider E5186 OR Vodafone B4000.

 

TP-Link M7650 4G LTE Mobile WiFi Router

TP-Link has announced the TP-Link M7650 Mi-Fi at CeBIT in Hannover. This new mobile Wi-Fi router will allow us to enjoy fast wireless connectivity anytime and anywhere.

The new TP-Link M7650 Mi-Fi offers download speeds of up to 600 Mbps and 50 Mbps upload for ultra-fast mobile connections with the support of LTE Category 11, which is almost double of the speeds from TP-link M7350 Hotspot.

It’s said that the TP-Link M7650 Mi-Fi is already the fastest mobile Wi-Fi router of the brand. The user can choose within the Wi-Fi 11ac the band of 5 GHz. This will allow you to achieve a speed of 687 Mbps, you can also opt for the 2.4 GHz band and get a speed of 300 Mbps. The pocket is capable of serving more than 32 mobile devices simultaneously(smartphones, tablets, etc.). This is praiseworthy since most mobile LTE routers currently support between 10 and 15 devices.

The TP-Link M7650 Mi-Fi offers a comfortable and manageable design. Its weight is so light that it will allow us to carry it in the pocket of the jacket without problems. Its small size does not prevent it from being manufactured with the latest technologies, those that meet any mobile need. This Wi-Fi router so compact equips a battery of 3000 mAh. According to company data, this figure will allow us to use the device for about 15 hours at full capacity.

On the other hand, in the section of the connections, we find a micro USB port. Thanks to it, the user will have more flexibility to load it from a laptop. Its operation is so simple, that it is only necessary to insert the SIM card and press the power button. Then the device will create a high-speed LTE network in just 30 seconds. In addition, the user will be continuously informed of the transmission speed. You will also know the number of devices connected, and the status of the battery or data consumption.

The TFT color display of the mobile LTE router measures 1.44 inches in the diagonal. The display does not provide a touch function. The router menu is navigated through two physical keys. Alternatively, the settings of the device can also be changed in the browser window via the MiFi app of TP-Link. In the menu, the user has the possibility to set data limits or assign a password for the network.

The TP-Link M7650 is also equipped with a microSD slot, into which a memory card with up to 32 GB can be plugged. The storage capacity should be sufficient to store or store photos, videos or other files when the internal memory of your own smartphone is sophisticated.

 

At the moment, the launch date of the new TP-Link  M7650 Mi-Fi are unknown. We will update the news about TP-link M7650 in future. If you are interested in other TP-Link 4G mobile hotspot, welcome to check here: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-brand/tp-link.html/

 

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) Smartphone Test

The Samsung Galaxy A3 has been popular in many countries for some time now, it is one of the very few small and handy Android smartphones with current equipment. What used to be the “mini-versions” of the big Galaxy S models today is the Galaxy A3 series, because a Galaxy S7 mini or a Galaxy S8 mini does not exist. With its 4.7-inch display and quite compact dimensions, the Galaxy A3 is well-suited for single-handed operation. In February, Samsung has already launched the third generation of the A series on the market, the Galaxy A3 (2017). In the test, the device will show whether it is as recommendable as its predecessors.

Appearance

The 2017 version of the Samsung Galaxy A3 comes considerably more rounded than the 2016 version. The Galaxy A3 (2016) is almost more modern compared to the Galaxy A3 (2017), although it is a generation older. Samsung provides a very high level of materials and processing, in the A3 (2017) front and rear made of glass and a matt metal frame. Speaking of color: Samsung sells the Galaxy A3 (2017) in the colors sky- black, sand-gold, blue-mist and cloud-peach, or simply black, gold, blue and pink.

The dimensions are 135.4 x 66.2 x 7.9 millimeters and the A3 is 138 grams heavier. The back is rounded to the sides, so that the device is comfortable in the hand. The display glass is also slightly rounded (2.5D glass). On the right is the power button, on the left are the two volume buttons. All buttons provide a very good pressure point. At the bottom of the device is a USB Type C connector, as well as the 3.5mm audio connector and a microphone. The second microphone for noise suppression is placed on the top, where you can also find the slot for the Nano SIM card and the optional MicroSD memory card. On the front you can find the home button, which also has a fingerprint sensor integrated.

In addition to the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017), there is also a white plug-in power supply (without quick-charging function), a white USB to USB type C cable for charging and data transmission, and a simple headset, also in white. In addition to the usual paperwork, there is also a small tool for opening the SIM card slot.

 

Hardware and software

The display of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) is 4.7 inches in the diagonal (16: 9 aspect ratio). The resolution is no longer quite modern with 1280 x 720 pixels (HD), but in the daily use does not disturb and there are still advantages such as the good maximum brightness and the accurate color representation. Only in direct comparison with a full-HD smartphone, the low pixel density is negative. The comparatively low resolution benefits the battery runtime: the Galaxy A3 (2017) with its 2.350 mAh strong battery runs for 2 days with normal use in any case, with little use probably even longer. And the battery cannot be changed.

 

Samsung has provided a 1.6 GHz Octa core processor for the Galaxy A3 (2017), which has 2 GB of RAM (RAM) available. The internal user memory is very narrow with 16 GB, especially since only about 10 gigabytes are available for free. Luckily, you can use MicroSD memory card for memory upgrade.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) supports WLAN according to the standards 802.11a/b/g/n/ac to 2.4 GHz and even to 5GHz, which is great for a smartphone for entry class. Also NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 are on board, as well as the support for various satellite navigation systems. LTE is supported on all frequency bands that are important for Europe (800, 850, 900, 1800, 1900, 2100, 2300 and 2600 MHz). The device is also well suited for occasional travel to other continents.

As an operating system, Android is used in version 6.0.1, an update to Android 7.0 seems to be currently under development and is likely to reach the Galaxy A3 (2017) in any case. The user interface is appealing and offers a lot of settings. In addition, the test proved positive that the system reacts very quickly and opens apps quickly. For the first set-up, it is best to schedule a few minutes more to configure the phone as your preference, as some menus are deeply hidden in the settings.

 

The Always On Display was particularly good in the test. This was introduced in 2016 with the Galaxy S7 and is now also available in Galaxy A series. If the display is switched off, the time and some additional information such as received WhatsApp messages are displayed. Thanks to AMOLED display technology, the energy consumption is very limited, in the test it was about 10% per 24 hours.

Camera

In the camera, Samsung uses a 13 megapixel sensor, which operates at full resolution in the 4: 3 aspect ratio. If you prefer the 16: 9 format, a maximum of 9.6 megapixels are available. The aperture is up to f1.9 and an autofocus as well as an LED flash is also available. Videos are available in full HD 1080p. The front camera offers 8 megapixels and also f1.9 aperture. The image quality of the back camera is good, but not outstanding. In good light, the recordings are very nice, especially macro pictures can be seen. In dark environments, the image quality of the camera is not quite as good, but still adequate and the price is definitely appropriate.

Conclusion: Recommended!

Samsung has consistently developed the Galaxy A3 in the 2017 version. The high-quality materials and the good workmanship are particularly impressive. Also the performance of the smartphone was very good in the test, the operation worked just as smoothly as with much more expensive upper-class smartphones. Good, but not outstanding are the camera and the display quality to evaluate. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) is highly recommended. The price-performance ratio is great; you can get a handy and compact Android smartphone at a fair price!

Of course, Samsung also provide many higher lever smartphones such as Galaxy C5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy C9. If you want to check more Samsung Smartphones, welcome to check http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-lte-smartphone/samsung-4g-smartphone.html

 

Alcatel LinkZone MW40V New LTE Hotspot

Recently, Alcatel offered a very favorable mobile LTE hotspot with WLAN: LinkZone MW40V. What’s most attracting is the very good price of this new 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot. With a low price, of course you cannot expect top equipment, but for many users, the integrated LTE modem for up to 150 MBit/s should be sufficient in any case. The operating time is up to 6 hours on continuous use based on 1.800 mAh strong battery.

Simple design

The Alcatel LinkZone MW40V Hotspot is made of matt black plastic, with four LEDs on the front(signal strength, WLAN, SMS and battery status), which receive signal from mobile radio reception. On the side there is a micro-USB 2.0 port for charging the battery, but no other interfaces such as connectors for an external antenna, which is very common in Huawei 4G mobile routers such as E5573, E5372, E5786. The SIM card must be in the MicroSIM format and is inserted under the battery. Optionally, a MicroSD memory card can be used in addition to the SIM card.

 

Software and app

The Alcatel LinkZone MW40V Hotspot works with any WLAN-enabled device, whether it is a smartphone, tablet or notebook. The control is optionally via an app for the smartphone (Android and iOS operating system) or via a web interface directly in the browser of the terminal. There are no buttons for control directly on the device or even an integrated display.

LTE Cat4 Hotspot

The LTE modem in the Alcatel LinkZone MW40V supports category 4, ie speeds of up to 150 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 Mbps in the uplink. All network operators in Germany, Austria and Switzerland have already equipped their networks for LTE Cat4, with a suitable tariff, the 150 MBit/s should be possible in real applications. Of course, the Alcatel MW40V is also downwards compatible with UMTS (3G) and GSM (2G), in the UMTS network up to 42.2 Mbps downlink and up to 5.76 Mbps uplink. According to manufacturer TCL Mobile, all currently relevant frequency ranges are supported for Europe:

* 4G/LTE: 800, 900, 1800, 2100, 2600 Megahertz

* 3G/UMTS: 900, 2100 Megahertz

* 2G/GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 Megahertz

WLAN and battery

The battery of the Alcatel LinkZone MW40V is 1.800 mAh large and can easily be exchanged by the user. The MW40V works exclusively in the frequency range around 2.4 GHz and also supports only the standards 802.11b/g and n, the more modern 802.11ac standard as well as the 5 GHz frequency band is not supported in this hotspot. For the vast majority of users, this should be fine, but in some situations such as at trade fairs or major events, the 2.4 GHz band might have problems.

If you think this Alcatel LinkZone MW40v can’t meet your requirements, you may check other new latest 4G mobile hotspots from other brands, such as Huawei E5787, Netgear Aircard 790, which supports high level LTE standards and of course offer at higher price. If you prefer Alcatel One Touch brand, you may check other models here: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-brand/alcatel-one-touch.html/ . The Alcatel Link 4G+ Y900 is recommended for LTE-Advanced networks.

Alcatel One Touch IK40V LTE Stick Overview

Alcatel recently launched a new inexpensive LTE-Stick IK40V on the market. The model is solid, but quite rudimentary equipped. Following other manufactures such as Huawei and ZTE, Alcatel IK40V LTE stick is not of fashion. This is mainly due to the fact that there are hardly any new versions on the market. Every now and then, the new sticks are upgraded with new technology and presented into the shops, so also the Alcatel IK40V (2AALDE1). In this article, we will show you all basic data and features of the IK40V surfsticks.

The IK40V has the whole range of mobile radio standards practically, which are relevant for a problem-free operation in city and country. There would be GSM, EDGE (2G), UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, (3G) and, of course, LTE (4G). LTE bands B1/B3/B7/B8 and B20 are supported by the integrated LTE modem, which corresponds to the frequencies at 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. It meets the category 4 (CAT4) standard. Users can thus achieve speeds of up to 150 MBit with corresponding LTE data rates.

 

Other features

 

The WLAN operation is not possible and ports for additional antennas the stick does not offer unfortunately. If you would like to use the device as a USB stick (2.0), you can upgrade to 32 GB with an SD card (microSD). By the way, the SIM slot for the mobile tariff has the form factor Micro SIM. The IK40V does not have a display for operating status, but relevant operating information is signaled with a few LEDs. A small user manual is included.

 

Conclusion

As a new LTE stick, the Alcatel IK40V is not at expensive, the price is quite good. The similar models Huawei E3276s-150 and E3372h-607 had been available for many network providers and carriers worldwide, but prices are comparatively expensive. The unlocked Alcatel IK40V is also available at www.4gltemall.com. The unlocked one would work with any network providers in Europe and Asia. It provides more option if you usually travel to other countries or areas.

 

Alternatives & CAT6

If you are looking for a device for speed with more than 300 MBit, therefore at least CAT6 (LTE-Advanced) supports, however, so far no suitable stick could be found. Instead, we recommend a mini-hotspot router as replacement. They are also suitable for use on the roadside and are technically more up-to-date, such as the Huawei E5787 or the somewhat larger Netgear Aircard 790s. What’s more, the LTE Cat11 mobile router for download speed to 600Mbps is available; if you want to know more LTE models, welcome to check www.4gltemall.com .

 

Samsung Presented New Flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung today introduced its two new flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ for the year 2017. The Galaxy S7 Edge gets two successors, which differ mainly by the display size: the Galaxy S8 has a 5.8 inch display while the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2 inch display. Both the display of the S8 and the S8+ is rounded on both sides, a version without edge display is no longer available. The highlight is certainly the almost frameless design of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the display occupies nearly the entire front, the frames above and below the display are significantly thinner compared to the Galaxy S7. It’s said the Galaxy S8 would be available in the market at the end of April 2017.

Design and display

Visually, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+ differ only in size. The S8 dimensions are 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 millimeters and weight is 152 grams, the S8+ dimensions are 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 millimeters and weighs 173 grams. The display has an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9 on both devices, so the devices are very narrow compared to 16: 9 devices with the same display diagonal. For comparison: an iPhone 7 with 4.7 inch display (16: 9) is only 0.8mm narrower than a Galaxy S8 with 5.8 inch display.

The design is broadly similar to that of the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S7 Edge, the device consists largely of glass, only the frame is made of metal. However, due to the large display, the home button has given way to software buttons and the fingerprint sensor has been placed on the back side of the camera.

Technology and software

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the first smartphones to support LTE Category 16. This allows extremely high speeds to be reached via the mobile network, depending on the extent of the network up to 1 Gbit/s in the downlink. As a processor, there is a octa-core Samsung Exynos 8895 with 64Bit, 4 x 1,7 GHz and 4 x 2,3 GHz. In other markets a Qualcomm chipset is installed, the performance should be comparable. The memory is 4 GB and the internal memory measures 64 GB (UFS 2.1 technology, via MicroSD expandable). The Galaxy S8 have versions with single sim and dual SIM functionality for different markets and carriers, the sim type is Nano-SIM.

 

The back camera of the Samsung Galaxy S8 offers a resolution of 12 megapixels and has an f1.7 aperture. The sensor works in the 4: 3 format, who would rather take photos in the 16: 9 format, has to deal with a lower resolution. The camera on the front takes photos with up to 8 megapixel resolution and also offers a f1.7 aperture.

In the WLAN area, the Galaxy S8 offers a very modern equipment. The 802.11ac standard is supported with MU-MIMO antenna technology, in combination with a modern MU-MIMO router, you should get significant speed advantages. The Galaxy S8 also supports NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 as well as various satellite navigation systems.

As an operating system, Android is used in version 7.0, of course again with a Samsung-adapted surface. The always-on display has been adapted in such a way that a home button is also visible when the display is switched off, since the physical home button has been lost in comparison with its predecessor.

Battery

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has – like the Galaxy S8+ – a permanently installed battery, which cannot be removed. The capacity is at the S8 3.000 mAh, while in the S8+, it is 3,500 mAh. The two devices support wireless fast charging as well as fast charging via the USB type C connector. By the way: in contrast to the Apple iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S8 does not have the 3.5mm audio jack connection, so you can use normal headphones and is not dependent on adapter or Bluetooth.

 

Price and availability

The two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 can be pre-ordered from now on and until the 19th of April in the Samsung Online-Shop as well as www.4gltemall.com . From the 28th of April, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be available in the colors “Arctic Silver”, “Midnight Black” and “Orchid Gray”.

TP-Link M7650 – Powerful Mobile Hotspot

The new portable 4G router looks smart. In order to meet the ever-increasing maximum bandwidths in the LTE networks, a modem has been installed, which the Internet speed could achieve at up to 600 Mbps ( Cat. 11 ) via LTE accesses. The upload is, however, with a maximum of 50 Mbit/s. At the moment (at the end of March 2017) the manufacturer didn’t release detail specifications of this new model. Therefore, we cannot known all the technical specifications, such as the dimension and weight. However, TP-Link confirmed, among other things.

The first thing, the M7650 could reach download speed up 600 Mbit/s. The WiFi module of the M7650 makes a good job here, as up to 867 Mbit/s are implemented via a 5 gigahertz frequency. Devices that do not support WLAN at 5 GHz can get network with 2.4 GHz. With this spectrum, up to 300 Mbit/s can still be implemented in the download. This mobile LTE router should not be blamed for the battery life. According to the manufacturer, with 3,000 mAh rechargeable battery, a maximum of 15 hours of continuous operation is possible. A mobile device can not only be connected with the M7650 via hotspot, but also configure the router.

 

The Chinese corporation TP-link does not show a new design for M7650 so that it can be special out of the mobile gadgets; it just follows the appearance of the M7310. There is a color mixture of silver and black and an informative TFT display. All information relevant to the operation is displayed on the latter, including the LTE signal strength, the battery status, the current speed or the network operator identification, everything is clear. The display measures 1.44 inches in the diagonal, it can be operated via physical buttons. It’s a pity that TP-Link M7650 does not have a touch screen while the similar model Netgear Aircard 810s already provides touch screen for users. What’s more, the integrated memory card slot accommodates microSD cards with a size of up to 32 GB.

 

Here now, the TP-link M7650 is not yet available on the market. There is another model Netgear Aircard 810s which has similar specifications and it’s already available on the market. If you prefer TP-link M7650, 4G Mobile Broadband Mall (www.4gltemall.com) accept pre-order of this future-proof 4G mobile hotspot. Once we get this TP-link M7650, we would take test and show our report soon.

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:
