ZTE MF905 WiFi Hotspot in Car Review

The ZTE VFi MF905 was first presented to public since last year, but it seems very few network provider had introduced this product to their data plan. Today, we get the ZTE MF905 Mobile WiFi Hotspot and it’s unbranded.

However, unlike its competitor Huawei E8377 CarFi, the MF905 MiFi has two parts. More specifically, the ZTE MF905 is only a small WiFi hotspot like Huawei E5331 but much smaller. If you want to use the ZTE MF905 in a car, you must get the cigarette charger base and plug the ZTE MF905 into the base. Then they would work together to provide wireless network in a car. There are 4 interfaces for power supply at the bottom of ZTE MF905 body. The interfaces would be suitable for the base.

If you don’t use the ZTE MF905 in a car, you can pull out the MF905 and it can get power supply through a USB cable which is included in the package. Of course, you can plug a SIM card into the MF905 and with power supply, you can get wireless network from this MF905.

On the front of ZTE MF905, there are 4 indicators for power, WiFi, signal strength and message. The power button is just in the middle of the 4 indicators. Below them is the ZTE logo. The front cover can be removed and after removed, we can see the SIM card slot. And the Reset hole is around the power button. But there is no slot for Micro SD card.

At the bottom of the ZTE MF905, there is a label showing the information:

 

Model number: ZTE MF905

Power input: DC 5V-1.5A

CMIIT ID: 2016CP6404

IMEI: 862252030032XXX

WLAN SSID: ZTE_9E4A07

WLAN Key: 71889989

IP Address: 192.168.0.1

The cigarette charger base can work well with MF905. Besides the power supply, there is also one USB port to charge other electric devices such as smartphones, Pads. On the cigarette body, there is also a label showing the information:

MF905 Especially for Car

Input: 12 – 2A

Output: 5V — 2.5A

USB Output: 5V — 1A

 

ZTE MF905 VFI

The two parts are packed in respective boxes. If you will use the ZTE MF905 in a car, don’t forget to get the cigarette base to let them work together. Otherwise, you need connect USB cable with the MF905 to work as a common mobile hotspot.

Conclusion

The ZTE MF905 is cool in black and the function is very practical with high LTE download speed support for up to 8 users. But the division of the two parts may not be a good design because the upper part of MF905 doesn’t have an insert battery, so if you want it work independently; you must keep it connected with the USB power adapter through the USB cable. It can’t work like a mobile pocket WiFi hotspot unless you let it work with a power bank. On this point, the Huawei E8377 may be more professional for a car.

 

Huawei B618S-22D 4G LTE Cat11 WiFi Router

A brand new Huawei LTE router has been launched in Europe and is now available for purchase on www.4gltemall.com . This is Huawei B618s-22d. It is a rather remarkable product in LTE category 11! Yes, you may have read, it allows to reach 600Mbit/s for download and 50Mbit/s for upload theoretically. Of course, you will not be able to reach such bit rates immediately, but this augurs well for the importance that 4G (and later 5G) reception will take by the various wired networks in areas badly covered.

 

The Huawei B618s-22d router is in compact design and it resembles its predecessor Huawei E5180 LTE CPE. The dimensions are 9.5cm long, 20.8cm high and 9.5cm thick. Its weight is 700 grams. It supports the 4G+ category 11 on the bands: 1/3/7/8/20/38 (FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz, TDD 2600MHz). It is therefore almost entirely compatible with all frequencies in Europe and other areas in Asia. But it’s a pity that it does not support the frequency 700MHz(B28).

 

The proposed WIFI is a/b/g/n/ac on 2 bands (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) and supports up to 64 connected devices. (Attention, theoretical data in laboratory, strongly dependent on wall thickness and other parameters.) At the LAN ports, there are 2 RJ45 gigabits and 1 LAN/WAN port. It is possible to connect an external antenna through the 2 TS9 ports. If you want to buy the external 4G/LTE antenna for Huawei B618, we had tested two external antennas for indoor and outdoor use:

 

 

An RJ11 port allows you to connect a phone on it to make calls via the inserted SIM card (Provided you do not force the router only on the 4G so that it can switch to the other frequencies (3G) and your plan not only in data). The VOIP/SIP is available and configured in the web interface. A USB 2.0 port connects a hard drive or printer.

 

More advanced settings are available as integrated DDNS, integrated VPN client, SMS sending/receiving … The SIM card must be in the MICRO SIM format. It has a multilingual interface that you manage from your computer to configure your network quickly and easily (DHCP, VOIP, FIREWALL, etc.) but is also compatible with the mobile application “Huawei Mobile WiFi” for a configuration via smartphone.

 

It has an on/off button which is handy to turn it off when you do not use it. Also, a WPS button (to connect wifi easily) and 8 LEDs will let you know the intensity of your 4G reception, WIFI activity, LAN activity, power, etc.

 

This Huawei B618s-22d is one of Huawei’s latest flagship router. Equipped with the latest technological innovations and in particular the 4G+ (category 11) 600Mbits/s, it will be suitable for those wishing to benefit from the current top LTE network. If you think the price is high, you may get satisfied with the lower level router Huawei B525s-23a or a Huawei B315s-22a that do their job right with almost half the price.

Test of TP-Link Archer MR200 4G Router

The TP-Link Archer MR200 Router is a feature-rich router built to maximize performance in your mobile broadband. We had a simple test to show more about TP-link MR200 router.

TP-Link Archer MR200 is a desktop 4G router. Unlike the Netgear AirCard 810 Mobile Hotspot we tested recently, Archer MR200 is not a router you can take to town (unless you know you’ll be near an electrical outlet). It is relatively large and clumsy and has no rechargeable battery. Instead, it is supposed to be used indoor where the router can get continuous power supply and then the broadband connection would be done quickly and easily.

It is also there, in a poor reception reception, the TP-Link Archer MR200 is supposed to show its strength, as it is equipped with a pair of solid external antennas to enhance the 4g reception.

User-friendly and feature-rich

Getting Started with TP-Link the Archer MR200 is really friendly. Just plug in with the 4G SIM card, turn on the router, enter the preset password that is written on the bottom of the router and start surfing.

When it is time to configure the router, this appears to be as easy and smooth as the installation itself. The interface is exemplary quickly, easily and clearly, even when we enter the more advanced settings.

Despite its rather simple exterior, the TP-Link Archer MR200 proves to be a truly functional and configurable router. Here it is in the top layer compared with competitors in the market.

 

Reception Good

Initially, the TP-Link Archer MR200 manages well in our performance tests. Reception is normal under normal conditions. The connection is always stable during the time we tested it. The WiFi results are slightly better. Here, the TP-Link Archer MR200 puts itself in the top level. The same good results goes for range tests, the TP-Link Archer MR200 gets good values ​​and performed better than most of tested routers.

 

But when we come to what will be the strength of TP-Link Archer MR200, the reception under difficult conditions, we will be a little bit disappointed. Instead of getting to the top, the TP-Link Archer MR200 turns out to be worse than the average. In fact, the TP-Link Archer MR200 is far below the newly tested mobile router Netgear AirCard 810. If you are located at somewhere with bad signal, you’d better choose a wireless router with connectors for external outdoor LTE antenna, which may help the router to get better 4G/LTE network, so you will enjoy the fastest possible network.

Conclusion

TP-Link Archer MR200 is not a bad router, but does not do all as what we expect from a powerful 4G router. When the router work in good network condition, it performs good, but if in bad condition areas, it has much space to improve to shorten the distance to its competitors. There are many similar 4G routers on the market that are more affordable than this one such as Huawei E5186, ZTE MF286 etc. At last, we have a look at the basic features of TP-link Archer Mr200:

Huawei B525s-23a 4G LTE Cat6 Router Review

The manufacturer HUAWEI has launched the router B525-23a in 2017, and now the latest 4G router B525 is already available for some network providers in Europe, Middle East and Asia, which is to replace the same excellent predecessor router Huawei E5186s-22a.

Huawei B525 B525s-23a

The dimensions of Huawei B525 router are 22.6cm long, 16.3cm high and 5.3cm thick. Its weight is 370 grams. These features mean it’s not a portable pocket WiFi router. It supports the 4G+ LTE category 6 on the bands:  1/3/7/8/20/32/38 (800/900/1500/1800/2100/2600MHz, TDD 2600MHz). No 700MHz(Band 28), so check first whether this router is right for your areas before you pick up, i.e. your network providers broadcasts on the above bands, which will make sure you can use this new router normally without any problem.

Huawei B525 B525s-23a

The proposed WIFI is a/b/g/n/ac on dual bands 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and supports up to 64 devices connected over 250m range. (Warning: these are the data of the manufacturer in optimal conditions; the range of the wifi depends on the thickness of the walls and other parameters.) At the back of the wireless router, there are 4 ports for LAN, of which 1 port is for LAN/WAN. An external 4G/LTE antenna can be connected via the 2 SMA ports. We recommend below two antennas for Huawei B525 for indoor and outdoor use:

Huawei B525 B525s-23a interfaces

An RJ11 port allows you to connect a phone on it to make calls via the inserted SIM card. (Provided you do not force the router only on the 4G so that it can switch to other voice frequencies and that your SIM package is not only in data) A USB 2.0 port connects a hard drive or printer. The SIM card must be in the MICRO SIM format.

It has a multilingual interface that you manage from your computer to configure your network quickly and easily (DHCP, VOIP, FIREWALL, consumption management etc) but is also compatible with the mobile application Huawei Mobile WiFi for a configuration via smartphones or Pads.

The Huawei B525s-23a Router 4G has an on/off button which is to turn it off when you do not use it. Likewise, a WPS button (to connect wifi easily) and 5 LEDs will allow you to know the intensity of your 4G reception. This HUAWEI B525s-23a is the latest flagship of the brand’s 4G routing modems. At a relatively affordable price (compared to smatphones for example), you will be able to get rid of a deficient ADSL network and multiply your connection speed.

Regarding what’s the real difference between Huawei B525 router and Huawei E5186 router, we will check later. Actually, they are too similar technically, we don’t know why the new B525 is presented when the Huawei E5186s-22a is good enough for current LTE cat6 networks.

HMD Global Presents New Nokia 8 Android Smartphone

HMD Global, the company behind the smartphone brand Nokia, has finally presented the first and long-awaited high-end model: the Nokia 8. Like Nokia Top models from the past years, the Nokia 8 comes with camera technology from Carl Zeiss, So that high expectations can be placed on image quality. The Nokia 8 has integrated the current Qualcomm chipset (type Snapdragon 835) and achieves speeds of up to 450 Mbps over the LTE network thanks to LTE Cat9 with 3CA.

 

Monoblock design and lots of performance

 

The Nokia 8 comes in a “monoblock design” with capacitive buttons according to the HMD Global and has been designed in such a way that the device not only looks good and is well in the hand, but also dissipates heat optimally. The display is 5.3 inches in size and has a very high resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (WQHD). With 700nts, it should also be very bright. The integrated battery is 3090mAh strong and not changeable by the user. It has the Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 quick-release feature.

 

The integrated memory is 64 GB in size and can be extended by up to 256 GB via MicroSD memory card. The memory is 4 GB. With the wireless interfaces, the Nokia 8 is very up-to-date, including support of Bluetooth 5.0 and WLAN 802.11ac. The USB Type C interface is especially fast thanks to USB 3.0 and 5Gbps support. Unlike some other high-end smartphones, a 3.5mm headphone jack is also on board.

 

Zeiss camera

 

The Nokia 8 is equipped with a dual camera system with Zeiss optics on the back. Both sensors have a resolution of 13 megapixels, the primary sensor takes up color and is equipped with an optical image stabilization, the secondary sensor takes pictures monochrome. The aperture is f2.0. There is an infrared distance meter as well as a dual-tone LED flash. The camera on the front comes with almost the same data (13 megapixels, f2.0), but has no optical image stabilization. The Nokia 8 has a special feature integrated; here the image of the front and the rear camera is simultaneously recorded. The feature can even be used for streaming networks such as Facebook and YouTube.

 

Software: “Pure Android”

 

HMD Global is working as an operating system to use a current and almost unchanged version of Android. Pre-installed Android 7.1.1, the manufacturer promises monthly security updates. Through the pure Android, the device is supposed to offer a better user experience than comparable high-end models from other manufacturers. This could be an important purchase point for some users, as many other manufacturers such as Samsung and Huawei often criticize the overloaded and advertising apps blocked user interface. Disadvantage of “Pure Android” might be that certain functions are not present through the pre-installed user interface. But it is always an option for Android.

 

Availability

 

The Nokia 8 is to be offered from September 2017 in the colors Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue. In addition to a single SIM version, a dual SIM version of the Nokia 8 is also available, but it can be assumed that HMD Global will market the dual SIM version only via the free trade and not through providers and network operators.

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 LTE Cat16 Smartphone Released

Samsung has introduced the Galaxy Note 8 in New York few days ago. The smartphone is equipped with a modern LTE Cat16 modem and allows speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s in appropriately equipped mobile networks. In addition to the standard version, a dual SIM version is also officially available in some areas, which is in the note series for the first time. The other technology includes a 6.3 inch display, a dual camera and 64GB internal memory.

 

Case with Infinity Display

The Galaxy Note 8 looks similar to the Galaxy S8 Plus, it is only slightly more angular than the sister model. The display is 6.3 inches in size, has an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9 and is rounded off to the sides, which is already known from the Galaxy S8. The resolution is 2960 x 1440 pixels (QHD+). Since the edges on the sides as well as the top and bottom were kept as narrow as possible, Samsung applies the display as “Infinity Display”. An important difference to the Galaxy S series is, of course, the S-Pen input pen, which is simply part of the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

 

The case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is dust and water proof according to IP68. With 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm, the Galaxy Note 8 is quite large, but still makes a slim figure compared to other devices from the 6-inch category. The weight is 195 grams.

 

Dual camera system

A further novelty compared to its predecessor Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy S8 is the dual camera. The Note 8 has two camera sensors each with 12 megapixel resolution, one with wide-angle lens and one with a kind of tele-lens, so that like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, a certain zoom can be achieved. The aperture of the wide-angle lens is f1.7, the telephoto lens has a diaphragm of f2.4. It is worth mentioning that both sensors have optical image stabilization (OIS).

 

Fast processor with Android 7.1.1

As a chipset, a Samsung Exynos 8895 is used in the European version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the memory is 6 GB. About 51 GB of the internal 64 GB memory ex factory for the user are available, a memory extension via MicroSD memory card is naturally possible.

 

In addition to Gigabit LTE of the category 16, of course, all other current radio technologies are on board, just as one expects it from an expensive high-end smartphone. The Galaxy Note 8 supports WLAN 802.11ac with MU-MIMO antenna technology, it can support VoLTE (voice over LTE) and WLAN calls and it supports Bluetooth 5.0. Android 7.1.1 is used as the operating system.

The battery of the Galaxy Note 8 is 3.300 mAh and can be charged both via USB Type C cable as well as wireless. A quick-charge mechanism is supported for both cordless charging and normal charging.

 

Dual-SIM Available

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes in September. While only a single SIM variant will be available in the free trade for network operators, a dual SIM version can be pre-ordered in the Samsung Online Shop. Currently, the price of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is at high side. If you can wait a few months, you will be able to benefit from a significant drop in prices.

Huawei Nova 2 General Review

Huawei will soon be offering a new smartphone Huawei Nova 2 with dual camera in Europe. The successor of the Huawei Nova comes in three different colors and with dual-SIM function on the market, the internal memory is very generously rated 64 GB for a middle class smartphone. A highlight is also the front camera of the Huawei Nova 2, which has a resolution of 20 megapixels and is supposed to provide a very good picture quality.

 

The Huawei Nova 2 looks quite similar to the predecessor, whose display is quite compact with 5 inches in the diagonal for today’s conditions. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). As an operating system, Android is used in version 7.0 nougat, as the user interface is preinstalled with Huawei typical EMUI version 5.1.

 

The battery of the Huawei Nova 2 is 2.950 mAh strong, with a body thickness of only 6.9 millimeters, which is quite remarkable. Also remarkable is the internal memory with 64 GB, which is also expandable via MicroSD memory card, unless one decides for a dual SIM usage. The nova 2 has a combination slot, ie you can use either two SIM cards or one SIM and one memory card. As a successor, a HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset (Octa-Core) is used, the memory is 4 GB.

 

On the back, the two camera lenses are visible – the predecessor came with a single sensor. The resolution is 12 megapixels, the aperture is f1.8. The front camera offers 20 megapixels even a higher resolution, the aperture is with f2.0 but slightly worse, ie there is less light on the sensor. For Selfies, the Huawei Nova 2 should be very suitable.

 

The Huawei Nova 2 is now available in Asia market. Some online retailers offer the device at different prices. The Asia version Huawei Nova 2 can be used with the network provides in Europe. As we know, the Huawei Nova 2 in China market is not customized by any mobile operators, so the nova 2 could be used in other network providers’ SIM cards. With the dual-SIM option, you may have more options to do the use the sim card and memory card. There is of course customized model for Huawei Nova 2, so if you would buy the Huawei Nova 2, make sure you choose the pure version with any customization.

Here now, the Huawei Nova 2 Plus is also available as the follower. With higher specifications and larger screen, Huawei Nova 2 Plus becomes a good competitor to Huawei Nova 2. If you want to know more about Huawei Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus, welcome to check www.4gltemall.com.
