Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 Review

When we got the Huawei E5730s mobile WLAN router last year, some customers ask when we can get the 4G device like Huawei E5730s. Now we get the new one with Ethernet port, the model number is Huawei E5770. Huawei named it “Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro”. If you know Huawei E5730s, you may know the similar functions of Huawei E5770.

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro is the upgraded model from Huawei E5730S. It supports 4G networks while E5730 only supports 3G networks. The design of Huawei E5770 looks cool. The wallet design of the Mobile WiFi Pro is fashioned with a leather texture and ornamental plating mid-frame. The E5770 is compact enough to fit in a pocket, and it’s also been fitted with an array of built-in innovations.

Like other Huawei 4G mobile WiFi, there is a 0.96 OLED screen on the top front, which can show the network mode, network strength, SMS, battery status and consumed data. Beside the screen, the Huawei logo is printed. On the top side, there is a cover beside the screen. Open the cover, we can see the USB input and output port. And there is an Ethernet port. The USB input is to charge the Mobile WiFi Pro. And the USB output is to charge other electronics.


Huawei E5770 is designed with protected and hidden ports, and is also built with Ethernet/3G dual link and the flexibility to support WAN/LAN auto redirect – all so you can stay connected without any problems while you travel. The Ethernet port is the key feature of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro. Through the Ethernet port, Huawei E5770 can finish three functions:

  1. Transfer the internet connection to WiFi
  2. Transfer 4G connection from SIM to WiFi
  3. Transfer 4G connection from SIM to Ethernet connection

What’s more, Huawei E5770 could support peak download speed to 150mbps on 4G LTE networks. The upload speed could also reach 50Mbps. To have better internet connection speed, Huawei E5770 mobile WiFi Pro should soon replace Huawei E5730s. It would be a perfect partner for international travel on 4G.


Another key feature of Huawei mobile WiFi Pro is the battery. The battery has a capacity of 5200mAh, which is much larger than usual smartphones. So the Huawei E5770 can be seen as a mobile power bank for other mobile terminals such as mobile phones, tablets or iPods. It can work effortlessly up to 20 hours straight and standby for over 500 hours.

Like other Huawei E5 Mobile hotspot, Huawei E5770 could support up to 10 wireless devices to access internet. User can insert a micro SD card to 32GB. Mobile WiFi Pro’s big storage means it’s now easier than ever to share files between your devices. It helps you quickly and easily “share” photos, apps with your friends through the same mobile Wi-Fi.


To sum up, Huawei E5770 combines 3 main functions (Mobile hotspot, power bank, Ethernt router) to one. It’s a special and very practical mobile pocket router. If you usually need wireless network outdoor, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 would be a perfect partner.

Huawei E3272 4G USB Stick Review

After Huawei E3276, Huawei offers a new model called E3272 for its LTE Stick series. Of course, the model supports LTE Category 4 (up to 150 Mbps) and this is the key feature for this new model. We show more details of E3272 below and reveal whether the acquisition of the mobile travel companion is worthy.

LTE features and characteristics of Huawei E3272

Manufacturer and model number Huawei E3272
Download rate Up to 150 MBit/s
Upload rate Up to 50 MBit/s
Supported LTE bands LTE800; LTE900; LTE1800; LTE2100; LTE 2600

USB-Standard USB 2.0
Memory card expansion yes; With 32 GB MicroSD
Compatible Operating Systems Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7+8, Mac OS (above 10.4)



Huawei unveiled the device for more than one year; it is easy to find shop online for Huawei E3272. Now it’s already available for many European operators.



From the appearance, we can see huawei E3272 is not similar to E3276, which has a rotatable USB, while E3272 is a compact USB. Users should not be blinded by the lower model number after the “E”. For Huawei means, confusingly, higher is not always new. User might think that the technology department rolls this out for the marketing department.

The most important is that we can benefit from Huawei sticks. Huawei E3272 supports the frequencies 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz – hence the E3272 could work with all major providers in Europe areas. With unlocked Huawei E3272, user can travel to Middle East and Asia. As already indicated, the LTE modem is compatible with LTE Category 4, which can be achieved download speeds of up to 150 Mbps and upload speed up to 50 Mbps. In addition, the Huawei E3272 is backward with all relevant previous mobile radio standards (3G/2G). If located not at LTE coverage area, your device automatically switches to the next best technology, such as UMTS or HSDPA.


A key difference for E3272 and E3276 is the built-chipset. Here Huawei E3272 relies on a HiSilicon Balong 710 (V7R1). Also new is a “HiLink” mentioned technology, which we introduce the following short.




“HiLink” hides an innovation from Huawei, which aims to accelerate the start-up and thus to connect to the Internet enormously. After plugging in, as promised by the manufacturer, Configuration shall be unnecessary and it is online only 15 seconds. 15 seconds is for driver auto installation, setup, and connection! This is a small revolution in fact. Our editorial team has already taken several tests with various sticks, such as ZTE, in the past. Some devices need only  install the software for up to 15 minutes, followed by complex configuration and excruciatingly long load times if necessary. Now it is finally turned to the Web Interface. This means installing extra software is no longer necessary – the operation easily handled via the browser, so as the Huawei E3272. However, “HiLink” is not a novelty from the E3272. Various predecessors already had the feature.



One criticism, however, is still there. While many other models of Huawei have a swiveling USB port, which proved to be user-friendly, but Huawei E3272 is unfortunately missing this feature. When used in conjunction with a laptop, user has to connect the E3272 via USB extension cable.



The E3272 is a rock solid LTE stick, which is technically on the amount of time. Those who does not need a Wi-Fi hotspot, can safely access via E3272. The relatively low price convinced. Significant innovations and improvements are attractive.

Vodafone K5150 LTE stick is also backwards compatible with 3G network and 2G network.

Huawei E3272 – New LTE Category 4 USB Stick

USB surfsticks are increasingly displaced by mobile hotspots with battery, but Huawei brings an LTE stick E3272 again recently on the market. The Huawei E3272 is held in the “stick form factor”, the USB port is so rigid and not like the previous model Huawei E3276 swiveling (“rotator form factor”). The maximum speed is 150 Mbit/s downlink and 50 Mbit/s in the uplink, which corresponds to LTE category 4 like previous LTE surf sticks Huawei E3272. With dimensions of 93.3 mm x 30 mm x 13.3 mm and weighing 35 grams, Huawei E3272 is much easier to take in pocket or bag.

Somebody say Huawei E3272 is on the HiLink function, which allows the operation of the surfsticks with no software. When you first plugged into the PC, only some drivers are installed, we found the mobile partner is still available in this stick. In most cased, no more setup is needed before connection, Huawei promises a connection in just a few seconds after plugging in the modem.

Good technical equipment
Like most other data devices in use, Huawei E3272 is also with a HiSilicon modem chipset. This allows not only LTE Category 4, UMTS with DC-HSPA+ (up to 42.2 Mbit/s in the downlink), but also GSM & EDGE data transmission. The supported frequency bands are common deployed worldwide, so we are glad to note that Huawei E3272 can use worldwide:

  • LTE: 800/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz
  • UMTS: 900/2100 MHz
  • GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

The USB port is protected by a cap, unfortunately this is not secured with a ribbon on the stick as you would know from the Vodafone K5150 LTE Stick. Two connectors for external antennas (2 × 2 MIMO) are located on the sides of E3272 body, as well as a slot for MicroSD memory cards is available, so you can use the Huawei E3272 LTE stick as a storage media. The system requirements are relatively low, so you can E3272 with Windows system from XP (Service Pack 3), Windows Vista (Service Pack 1), to Windows 7 or Windows 8, alternatively you can of course also use with MAC OS, here must be at least OS X to be installed in version 10.6 or higher.

The Huawei E3272 LTE stick is available in stores now, without a contract. With a slim body and good functions, we recommend Huawei E3272 if you want to enjoy the LTE Download link speed to 150Mbps.
