Osprey 2 (Alcatel Y853) 4G Pocket Router Review

We had introduced the first generation Osprey MiFi last year and now the second generation comes out and it’s named EE Osprey II (or Osprey 2) Mini router. It’s customized by the network provider EE in UK. Also like Osprey MiFi, it’s also from the vendor Alcatel One Touch. The first Osprey MiFi comes from the factory model Alcatel Y855 and now the Osprey 2 comes from the Alcatel Y853.

Alcatel Y853 Ospray 2 4G Mini Router

Frankly speaking, the two Osprey MiFi are similar on appearance and even functions. The Osprey 2 MiFi also has a SIM card slot, with a valid SIM card, user can access internet freely. Up to 10 wireless terminals could connect to the Osprey 2 and surf. The Osprey 2 mini router is in pocket size and user can take it easily in hand or pocket. It’s a good partner for business men or traveler to take it around the world.


The colors of Osprey 2 router is very attractive, in black body and colorful round edge. The outside edge is surrounded by a bright yellow slightly rubbery plastic that gives a little protection from drops. Going around the edge one side has the power button that also serves as a 4 LED power level indicator, the second has a sim draw for the nano sim – this takes a tool to lever open. The third side has a microUSB and full size USB port as well as a recessed reset switch and the fourth side is blank.

On the top size, the EE logo is printed and the LEDs show the strength of the network signal which is connected to. It also shows the 3G or 4G connection and if you have any SMS messages on the account. On the back sticker, we can see the model number, WiFi name and password for WiFi.


The Osprey 2 mini router could support peak download speed to 100mbps and upload speed to 50mbps on LTE networks available. It could support LTE network on frequency band 3, 7 and 20 (800/1800/2600Mhz), which means it could work well with almost all the countries in Europe and Asia. Sometimes, if the LTE/4G network is not available, it will automatically switch to 3G UMTS networks. With DC-HSPA+ technology, the peak download speed could reach 42mbps. The WiFi work on 802.11 b/g/n on single band 2.4GHz, 5GHz band is just missed.

The Alcatel Y853 will still use the micro SIM to get network. The battery capacity is 1500mAh, which is just enough for one day use. Here now, there are many 4G mobile hotspot with large power volume, such as Huawei E5770. The Alcatel Y853 is just OK for usual life. If you want to extend the working time, a mobile power bank may be necessary and this will be a good solution for the Osprey 2 battery concern.

ZyXEL WAH7706 LTE Cat6 Hotspot Review

ZyXEL offers the cheap LTE-Advanced Cat6 Hotspot WAH7706 in January 2016. You can get the small portable LTE router with replaceable battery, which can reach up to 300 Mbit/s download speed. Up to 32 devices can be connected via the integrated WLAN ac simultaneously with an internet connection. The ZyXEL WAH7706 is in direct competition with other vendors such as Huawei, Netgear and Alcatel one touch. Today, we will have a look at what’s the key features of the new ZyXEL WAH7706 mobile hotspot.



The ZyXEL WAH7706 LTE Hotspot is packed in a nondescript cardboard box. In addition to the router, a USB to microUSB cable can be found in the packaging, with which the battery can be recharged. There is also a good guide that contains all the instructions and information for controlling the WAH7706 and through many images is easy to understand. Unfortunately (but maybe only in my tester is the case) the instructions in English, and a power adapter is not included, so you need to use to an existing power supply with USB connector and the USB cable to charge the WAH7706 from PC. But it should not be a big problem because most users should always have at least one suitable power supply from their mobile phone at home.


At first glance, the ZyXEL WAH7706 appears quite small and compact. At the sides, the device is flat, so the router is very well in hand. Overall, however, the design is very spectacular and the mirrored front is more disruptive than helpful, especially when it comes to read the small or low-light display on the front. There is the micro-USB port, so you can not connect an external LTE antenna. But you can remove and replace the rear battery, which is also not so necessarily common. The SIM card should be present in the MicroSIM format, but a nano-sim with adapter is also no problem.



LTE-Advanced Cat6

The ZyXEL WAH7706 is one of the fastest LTE router on the market, the modem allows speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s downstream and up to 50 Mbit/s upstream via LTE Category 6. The internet connection was very stable and reliable in the test, presumably a chipset from Qualcomm works in WAH7706. In Telekom’s LTE network in 1800 MHz, data rates up to 200 Mbit/s could be achieved, the latency was up to 20 milliseconds in the Vodafone LTE network. Both readings are of course highly individual and depend on various external factors, ie there are some large deviations upwards and downwards.

The ZyXEL WAH7706 supports LTE bands 3, 7, 8, 20, 28 and 38 and can be used in addition to LTE, and of course UMTS and GSM networks. The use abroad is no problem, only in North America there may be restrictions on multiple vendors, as there usually different frequency ranges are used. It is generally advisable to look before buying, which frequency bands are required, if the router is to be taken more often when traveling to other countries.


Thus the fast LTE Cat6 connection arrives and including connected terminals, of course, a powerful wireless radio module is necessary. The ZyXEL WAH7706 here offers dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, thus allowing simultaneous operation at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This is in view of the comparatively low price is not self-evident and therefore definitely worth a praise! Up to 32 devices can be connected simultaneously via WLAN with the Hotspot, which is very powerful than other similar devices. As we know, most LTE mobile hotspot could support only 10 or more to 15 wireless terminals simultaneously. The similar model Huawei E5786 is integrated a wireless extender or repeater, unfortunately this function is not available in WAH7706.



The battery has a capacity of 2800 mAh and is easily replaceable by the user. According to ZyXEL, the WAH7706 provides thus an operating time of approximately 10 hours. The device was posted permanently in noisy environments in LTE network and has passed an Internet radio stream via WLAN. What positively noticed in connection with the battery: the appliance heats up despite persistent use only minimal, which is quite an advantage over comparable devices. The chipset seems generally to consume little energy and be mature.




The setup and configuration of ZyXEL WAH7706 takes place via the web interface, which you easily can access by entering the IP address of the router from any browser. The web interface is simple modern decor and reacts very fast. The home page offers all important information at a glance, such as the used volume of data or the number of connected devices. There is also of course all the information about the battery status, and network technology.


The menu item “Internet” can be operated on request through only in LTE, UMTS or GSM network. In addition, of course, you can adjust the access data (APN) individually, provided that the device has not been automatically entered the correct data. Through the “Data Usage”, user can store a data limit and get notified when it exceeds a certain limit, not to exceed approximately disposable in the collective volume. SMS can be sent and received, of course also, even contacts can be stored in a phone book. If a memory card is inserted, you can use the ZyXEL WAH7706 as a file server.



The ZyXEL WAH7706 is a very good mobile LTE hotspot. In the test, the device was able to impress with a long battery life and a fast and stable Internet connection. Also, the web interface is fast, easy to use and has many features. A drawback may be the lack of connections for an external antenna for some users.



As an alternative, other vendors also provide LTE category 6 mobile hotspot, such as Alcatel Y900, Netgear AC790s and Huawei E5786, but all of them are more expensive than WAH7706.


Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini 4G LTE Smartphone Review

Technical Features:

Inside the Samsung Galaxy S5, a modern Snapdragon 801 operates with 4 cores which are each betaktet 2.5GHz. Thus Samsung built the currently second-best processor from Qualcomm. Ahead was speculated that possibly the Snapdragon 805 (2.7 GHz), will be part of the specification. And up to the clock rate both CPUs same anyway, because both versions are based on the Krait 400 core.

Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G9008V, SM-G9006V) (2)

The display comes up with a diagonal of at least 5.1 inches, which dissolves 1920 ×1080 pixels with full HD. The pixel density is 432 ppi. When 2 GB RAM is available, what the high-end range standard is practically known. The internal space is practically sufficient size to 16 GB, but can be increased via MicroSD to 64 GB.

Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G9008V, SM-G9006V) (6)

No wishes remain open here for the most demanding customers actually. Starting with the support of all common WLAN standards, to wireless AC. The latter enables wireless connections up to 300 Mbit/s. The smartphone dominated moreover not “only” LTE, but also the latest expression of the category 4. If you book an appropriate mobile tariff from network providers, user can be so happy about data rates up to 150 Mbit/s. Even the so-called carrier aggregation is supported – a part of the LTE-Advanced specification that will allow for even higher speeds in the mobile network.

Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G9008V, SM-G9006V) (3)

The camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels and brings an innovative new function regarding HDR photography. HDR images are photos with an increased dynamic range, they are so far only to create quite cumbersome. Firstly several bracketing must always be (best with tripod) created and then be cumbersome added together with special programs. Samsung now provides for the first time a live HDR mode, which allows such images directly and in real time.


Also new is a temperature and pulse sensor, and a fingerprint scanner, like the iPhone S5,  which is intended as an alternative password to unlock the device or during payment transactions.

Differences between Galaxy S5 and S4

Whoever keeps the S5 and S4 in the hand, will make two observations in a direct comparison. Once the minimal bigger screen (0.1 inches) and especially the ridged back, which now has a leather-like feel. Otherwise can be at least visually hardly notice differences. This hidden mainly under the surface. In Galaxy S4 , a Snapdragon 600 chipset with a comparatively modest 1.9 GHz is used. In addition, the resolution of the camera was “only” 12 megapixels. Samsung also upgrade 200mAh battery from 2600 to 2800 mAh, which should correspond to a whopping 40 hours more standby time. When display the differences between the two models, however, are marginal. Both Super AMOLED screens have full HD – the pixel density is higher at S5, which, however, are unlikely to detect. All the new features are gained by contrast, a minimally elevated total weight of 15 grams. In addition, hopefully the stability of the display has been improved. There were unfortunately very many complaints from customers for Galaxy S4, which display that, even without great force, is torn. Here time will tell whether Samsung has reworked at the point.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 could support the LTE-Advanced network. With LTE Cat6, up to 300 Mbit/s download speed is possible in the already-developed cities. Samsung’s “download booster” allows for simultaneous data transfer via LTE and Wi-Fi: The booster uses a bundling technology to combine Wi-Fi and LTE together and promises so again much faster data transfers – if that makes any sense. The Galaxy S5 also comes with the version of the Google operating system Android 4.4.4 aka KitKat, which among other things, supporting the upcoming Speech Technology Voice over LTE (VoLTE) with itself.

Technical features

The most striking feature of the new Samsung Galaxy S6 is its design: Samsung uses a metal case, the front and rear is equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass. However, the high-quality materials have a disadvantage: Because the back is not removable, and the battery can not be swapped. In addition, Galaxy S6 is no longer against dust and water resistant.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (12)

Quad HD display and octa-core CPU


The 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display dissolves in QHD to (1,440 x 2,560 pixels), resulting in an unmatched pixel density of 577 ppi. Samsung donated the Galaxy S6 his self-made octa-core processor Exynos 7420. It is composed of two quad-core CPUs, whose four cores clocked at 2.1 or 1.5GHz.The Exynos 7420 is the first mobile 64-bit processor on the market, which was manufactured in 14-nm process.



No SD card slot

Samsung Galaxy S6 has no space for extra memory card: 3GB RAM are available to the user. For the internal memory, the South Koreans will now follow a similar path as Apple: Since no expansion option via Micro-SD card is available, there is three memory variants with 32, 64 or 128 GB for Galaxy S6. And Samsung relies flash memory first on the faster UFS standard.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (9)

LTE-Advanced and WLAN ac

With the support of LTE-Advanced category 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is far ahead for mobile data traffic. Speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s in the downlink and 50 Mbit/s in the uplink are possible depending on the provider and tariff. Maximum speed is also available in the WLAN ac that is supported in dual band mode at 2.4 and 5 GHz. In addition, Bluetooth 4.1 is onboard.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (8)


Streamlined TouchWiz interface


The operating system is the latest Android Lollipop 5.0.2 preinstalled, coated with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface Nature UX. What many purists will be happy: The screens are not cluttered with Samsung’s proprietary, non-erasable Apps. Only S Voice and S Health are preinstalled to Microsoft apps like Skype, OneNote and OneDrive. The users can also download remaining Samsung Apps freely or maybe not.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (3)


Camera with quick start function

The main camera of the Galaxy S6 has a resolution of 16 megapixels and can draw on a F1.9 aperture. The camera features include HDR mode, optical image stabilizer, 4K video recording, selective focus, white balance and slow motion/fast motion. There is also a very nice feature called “Quick Launch”: By double-clicking the Home button in the camera to be ready for less than one second. The front camera for selfies and video chats dissolves with 5 MP.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (10)


New Fingerprint Sensor and Apple Pay

Samsung has improved the fingerprint sensor on Galaxy S6: Now you have no longer wipe previously the home button, but can directly replace the finger to unlock the smartphone. Via finger, a transaction is authorized even with the new payment system “Samsung Pay”; This service, however, is not available for the time being in some areas. In the long term, the payment service is of course the major competitor to “Apple Pay”.



However, the battery of S6 Samsung has somewhat saved unfortunately compared to Galaxy S5; there are only 2,550 mAh available, also it is firmly installed. There is a rapid charging mode, the back in ten minutes to half fill the battery. Moreover, inductive charging is possible, with all charging stations that support the standards WPC, PMA or Qi.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (11)


Galaxy S6 Edge

In addition to the S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has also been available at the same time. In this new S6 Edge model, the display goes similar to the latest Galaxy S7 Edge – side over the edge. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge’s screen is curved on both sides. On the edges, apps or notifications are displayed. What’s more, the S6 Edge is technically larger than Galaxy S6, only the battery is only 2,600 mAh.




The Samsung Galaxy S6 is available since 10 April at www.4gltemall.com. And it’s in the colors: white, black, gold and blue. Depending on memory (32/64/128 GB), the S6 costs rises accordingly.

Samsung Galaxy S6 (4)


No question, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 is not only technically, but also visually now a fragrance brand in the high-end class in smartphones and is a direct competitor to Apple’s iPhone 6 or HTCs new One M9. Disadvantage is the non-removable battery and the unit is neither dust nor water resistant, and an SD card slot is also missing.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is, although quite similar to its predecessor, but in detail some important changes have been made that make the device again slightly better in the hand. So the glass on the back to the sides is now clear rounded, the metal frame has become somewhat thinner. The colors look overall very nice, the best impression, however, has left the silver variant in the first Hands-On. This just seems very chic, but also has a major drawback: fingerprints are best visible in the silver version. When at the white and black Galaxy S7, fingerprints are indeed a problem, but here it is still rather limited. A more unusual color such as the bright blue of the Galaxy S6 is no longer available for the S7 unfortunately.

The display has remained at the same size 5.1 inches, and the resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (qHD) remains good. In the pixel density of 577 ppi content on the AMOLED display are depicted extremely sharp and vivid colors. The luminosity was the first test well. A new feature of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is the always-on function of the display content, such as the time and upcoming appointments can be displayed even when the display is off.

Improved camera

The camera sits on the Samsung Galaxy S7 again centrally at the back, is now, however, only very slightly out of the phone body, the clearly visible that there is no longer camera bump from Galaxy S6. The camera was not only visually upgraded, technically they can do much more: the look is very bright with F1.7 and the individual pixels to be significantly larger than its predecessor. The resolution is 12 megapixels in 4:3 format is slightly lower than its predecessor. In 16: 9 format are approximately 9 Megapixels. Videos can be recorded with 4K UHD resolution of course as usual.


LTE CAT9 with 450 MBit/s

In addition to a new processor, which is manufactured in the 14nm process, the Samsung Galaxy S7 also has a current LTE modem on board. This speeds up to 450 Mbit/s over the LTE network are possible, provided the network is expanded accordingly and an appropriate tariff is used. In the uplink up to 50 Mbit/s are possible. Samsung Galaxy S7 supports WLAN both the frequency range of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz (WLAN 802.11ac MIMO).

The RAM is 4 gigabytes in size; the internal memory of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is 32 gigabytes in size, and later to a version appear with 64 gigabytes of internal memory. Unlike the Galaxy S6, a memory expansion with MicroSD memory card is possible with the Galaxy S7, therefore, the memory can be upgraded cost-effectively.


In the first test, the Samsung Galaxy S7 performed well definitely. Unlike the sister model Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 has a smaller display screen, but the specifications are largely identical. A real test of the series model now show how long the non-changeable 3,000 mAh battery, and how the device generally performs in daily use.
