Huawei E5885Ls-93a Mobile WiFi 2 Pro Test

In the internet era, we need surf internet anytime and anywhere, but when going outside, the unstable WiFi and expensive charge on 4G may be a big problem for those who want high quality data transmission. And then the Mobile WiFi Hotspots are becoming a good solution for this. Today, we would introduce a new Mobile Hotspot from Huawei, and let’s see what’s new it bring to us.

Cool Appearance

The new model is named Huawei E5885 Mobile WiFi 2 Pro, more specifically; the model number is Huawei E5885Ls-93a. We suppose there will be other model numbers for various network providers over the world. If the new brother model available, we would also introduce.

 

Following the design from first generation of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770, the Huawei E5885Ls-93a is in cuboids shape, but it’s thicker and more elegant than E5770. The size of E5885 is just as large as one hand and user can easily take it in hand or pocket. It also looks like a common mobile power bank, actually, it can work as a mobile power bank to charge other devices by USB cable.

HUAWEI E5885Ls-93a Mobile WiFi Pro 2 front logo

The top half of the front is made of black plastic material, where there is a 0.96 inch OLED screen in the middle. The screen function is similar to its predecessor huawei E5786, but not a touch screen like Huawei E5787 mobile WiFi Touch. When the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 working, the screen would show the network connection status, battery status, signals, SMS and WiFi connections etc.. The rest half of the front is made of leather, which makes the Huawei E5885 very soft so as to have a very good touch feel. And we can see, the Huawei logo is just printed on the leather at the below side of the LED screen. The back cover is also made of leather with Huawei logo and the words “CAT6/6300mAh/23Wh”, which means the E5885Ls-93a could support LTE Cat.6 and has large battery of 6400mAh to have 23 hours continuous working time.

The back cover of the Huawei E5885 could be opened and we can see the SIM card & Micro SD card slot with one Reset hole. Huawei E5885Ls-93a uses Micro SIM card. The Huawei WiFi 2 Pro could support maximum SD card storage up to 32GB, and the data could be shared through the WiFi in the connected users. At the side of the SIM card slot, there is a small label which indicates the name of this device: Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro2 E5885L and model number E5885Ls-93a. And the SSID, WiFi key, IP address, IP log in user name and password. There is also one QR code, where user can scan to connect, and the IMEI number, S/N number, certified logos are listed below.

HUAWEI E5885Ls-93a Mobile WiFi Pro 2 ports

The round side of the Huawei E5885 is made in champagne gold color, which makes the WiFi Pro 2 looks very cool. On the top edge, the WPS and power button are located at each side. Open the cap between them, we can see the 5V/2A output USB port, Input 5V/2A port and one RJ 45 Ethernet port. With the Huawei E5885, there is a sling which can not only hang the device but also work as a USB cable. It’s very useful for user to hold the E5885 WiFi pro 2, and charge other device. We see the design is also available on the Huawei E5770 mobile WiFi Pro and it’s really a good design.

Internet Connection Through WiFi

The Huawei Mobile WiFi 2 Pro is easy to use, user just need one valid SIM card with data plan, plug into the SIM card slot and power on, then there will be WiFi available for internet connection. The SIM card needs to be Micro SIM. User can see the network mode, data used and left, battery status in Huawei HiLink APP through smartphones. And user can also setup the WiFi mode, single band or dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) are both available. Of course, we can also see the data used and network mode & provider’s name on the OLED screen.

Internet Connection via Ethernet

If only Ethernet cable is available for internet, Huawei E5885 Mobile WiFi Pro 2 can also show its function. Just plug the Ethernet cable to the RJ45 port and configure the settings through Hilink APP or web interface, you can then access internet. We suggest downloading the Hilink APP, connecting with the Huawei E5885 WiFi and open the APP for settings. To be more secure, you can also change the log in user name and password. The whole process is very simple and user can also do further settings if necessary.

Work as WiFi Repeater

The Huawei E5885L can also work as a WiFi repeater, which means the WiFi PRO 2 can get connected with the existing WiFi from other gateway or router, just like a phone connecting to WiFi. After connected, the Huawei E5885 can extend the WiFi coverage for more space. However, if the Huawei E5885 is already connected with Ethernet cable, the WiFi repeater function would be unusable.

 

Battery Saving and Guest WiFi

The Huawei E5885 is very smart in application. There is battery-saving function, when it’s activated, the WiFi Pro 2 would automatically close the WiFi if long-time data transmission so as to save battery. Sometimes, user may need setup a special WiFi for visiting guest, the Huawei E5885 can provide this function and if don’t need it, user can close this function easily from Hilink APP.

Storage Sharing without Data Consumption

The users connected with Huawei E5885 WiFi can share the files or videos in Micro SD card easily, what’s amazing is that the sharing would not cost any data, so it’s called ”Zero data consumption sharing”. It’s better to share the files, images or videos through the Huawei Hilink APP. The Huawei WiFi 2 PRO also supports sending short messages.

 

Fastest Wireless Surfing Speed

In our test, the Huawei WiFi 2 Pro would provide stable and fast internet connection. With the support 300mbps download speed on LTE category 6, Huawei E5885 can switch to the fastest network mode available so as to provide the best support for data transmission. It can definitely meet the common requirements whenever you are at home or going outside.

Summary

As a latest LTE gadget combining the functions of 4G mobile hotspot, Ethernet gateway and mobile power bank, Huawei E5885 mobile WiFi Pro 2 is a powerful and practical partner for outdoor activities or business travel. With the cool design and good touch feel, we can’t praise more on the small pocket router. The easy setup and management is also very good for most users.

1 & 1 New mobile LTE router E5573 from Huawei

1 & 1 has now a new mobile WLAN router with LTE support from Huawei in its product range, which the customers can use with a notebook or tablet. The router is the Huawei E5573 in black color. The small LTE router Huawei E5573 looks cool and is very similar to its predecessor such as Huawei E5577 and E5373.

 

While the Huawei E5573 router is included in the package with a 1 & 1 Tablet-Flat as a free start gift, the prospective buyer for the mobile device may also benefit from the contract. A minimum contract term of two years applies.

With the mobile router Huawei E5573, up to 14 devices such as smartphones, tablets or notebooks can connect to the router through WiFi and then access internet. Thus the user does not have to use his own mobile phone access for surfing the Internet. The owner has the possibility to set up a WLAN password protection so that only authorized persons can access the mobile WLAN router with LTE.

 

The Huawei E5573 can either be connected in the mobile network via LTE or via UMTS. It should automatically select the fastest mobile connection. According to 1&1, the the 1 & 1 version of the E5573 also has a WLAN extender function, depending on availability, the router also connects to the Internet via a 1 & 1 Home Server at home or via a public WLAN hotspot. The original Huawei version of the E5573 also offers this function.

 

With the dimensions 104 x 65 x 14.6 millimeters and a weight of 106 grams, the mobile WLAN router with LTE support fits in any trouser pocket and is lightweight. The Huawei E5573 supports LTE speeds of up to 150 Mbps downstream and up to 50 Mbps upstream. According to the manufacturer, the 2300 mAh battery should have a standby time of up to six days and a continuous operating time of up to eight hours.

 

The WLAN interface allows a maximum speed of 300 MBit/s and operates in the frequency range of 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz. WLAN ac is unfortunately not supported, which is due to the not too high LTE speed of “only” 150 MBit/s.

 

It’s a pity that the Huawei E5573 has only one signal and battery indicator on the front, they are just located at the two sides of the power button. Unlike the latest model Huawei E5787 or Huawei E5786, user can’t read the connection information from the front. Users have to get the information from the huawei mobile wifi APP or log into the web interface for more details. Of course, the Huawei E5773 offer lower price than the Huawei hotspots with screen. But we still think the screen is necessary.

 

 

Xiaomi Mi 6 Unboxing

Xiaomi has been one of the top mobile phone manufacturers from China. The models from brand Mi can keep technically and qualitatively equal with Apple and Samsung but cost significantly less. Now we get the new Xiaomi Mi 6 mobile phone for test.

The Xiaomi Mi6 is equipped with a handy 5.15 inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB RAM. As an operating system, Android 7.1.1 nougat with the Xiaomi-own surface MIUI 8 is used. With this interface, the Android operating system not only expands a number of functions, but also virtually completely reverses it. Comparing with the similar phones from other brands, the Android smartphone is a real bargain.

 

Simple elegance is the motto of Xiaomi packaging. Nothing except that the Mi logo and the memory equipment is printed on the front. The stable lid can be lifted easily and then you can see the Xiaomi Mi 6, which is protected with a film on the front, back and camera lens against scratches during transportation. When we tested it, we have already removed them. The included accessories are hidden under the Android smartphone. The plastic bowl, in which the Xiaomi Mi6 is located, offers a small opening for easy lifting.

After removal of the plastic shell with the Xiaomi Mi6, a silicone cover in transparent black comes first. The actual accessory underneath is clearly and without further packaging in the box. Xiaomi does not have headphones, which means that you have to use your own headphones if you want to listen music yourself in the phone.

 

It comes with a USB type C cable, which charges the Xiaomi Mi 6 and is fed with data from the PC/Notebook. It also includes a power supply for Chinese sockets. A power supply suitable for European sockets is not included with the Android smartphone. More specifically, no Xiaomi device has such a device since the manufacturer operates exclusively in Asia and therefore does not have to enclose it.

Depending on the import wholesaler, a European power supply can be ordered either separately or as a service package already included in the package. The so-called global editions of the Xiaomi models are a special case: they already contain an EU-compliant power supply in the packaging. The power supply itself supports QuickCharge from Qualcomm for faster charging.

Furthermore, an adapter is part of the scope of delivery, with the help of which a cable headset can be used on the Xiaomi Mi6. Because: Xiaomi has like the Apple or HTC the 3.5 millimeter jack. Audio is only output via the USB Type C connector, which is one of the great features of Android since version 5.0 Lollipop. This has the advantage that audio hardware can communicate directly with the system, for example, to integrate an audio amplifier directly into the headset. Alternatively, of course, a Bluetooth headset with the Android smartphone can be used without problems.

The Xiaomi Mi6 is factory-set Dual SIM-capable. The device for opening the SIM slot is, of course, included in the package, which is stored inside the quick start guide. This is completely written in Chinese and therefore for the least understandable. Further instruction leaflets such as warranty information or instructions/information in other languages ​​are not included in the package. It should also be noted that Xiaomi smartphones do not support LTE band 20 and LTE800. Only the special global editions have support for LTE800 and other languages ​​besides Chinese.

Not everyone will like the back of the glass, which can quickly change by a protective cover. One of these is included in the Xiaomi Mi6 and makes it very well. It fits perfectly and protects the smartphone against accidental falls, without destroying the edge of the device. In the online shop of Xiaomi, there are further accessories such as more robust cases made of hard plastic, flip covers or sleeves in other colors.

In summary, the package content of the Xiaomi Mi6 is not exactly lush, on the other hand useful. Thus the carton is not unnecessarily heavy and the costs can be reduced. At a decent budget price for a premium smartphone in terms of technology and processing, the missing headset is a pain. Anyhow, there is no doubt that the Xiaomi Mi6 is a high budget phone with the technical specifications. If you are looking for a cool smartphone with good price, you may try Xiaomi Mi6.

Huawei E5180 Cube for Congstar Homespot Test

At the IFA, congstar presented its first mobile phone tariff at the beginning of September, which also officially foresees the use of Telekom’s LTE network. However, the offer can only be used in a certain place, for example, to have a broadband internet connection in the caravan, at the campsite or in the student residence.

 

In the contract, congstar presented a WLAN Cube, also a suitable router manufactured by Huawei, which converts the LTE Internet access into a WLAN signal, which then makes it possible to provide internet for smartphones, tablets and notebooks with a wireless Internet access supply. A device can also be connected directly to the WLAN Cube using an Ethernet cable.

We have s the opportunity to test the homespot rate of congstar together with the WLAN Cube since last week. The SIM card must be inserted into the router slot. The WLAN Cube is then supplied with power via the included power supply unit. The PIN of the SIM card must then be entered. This works via the configuration menu of the router, which can be reached at address 192.168.8.1 via a connected smartphone, tablet or notebook. For future use, the SIM PIN can be stored so that it does not have to be entered again.

Congstar Homespot from Huawei E5180

 

The WLAN access data and the homespot model are to be found on the underside of the router, which in the original is called Huawei E5180. After initial commissioning, the SSID as well as the password can be customized. In addition, users have the option of switching from the automatic selection of the WLAN channel to manual selection. The WLAN Cube is supported only by the much heavily overloaded 2.4 GHz range. If you want to use a 5 GHz router, you have to check other models such as the latest Huawei B525 and Huawei E5186 wireless gateway. If you want to use your own router instead of the congstar WLAN Cube, you have to make sure that it has the LTE standard and the frequency ranges used around 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz.

 

However, the test also showed that congstar Homespot is not only working with 4G network. If LTE is not available at the desired location, the cube would work on 3G or 2G network automatically. We have switched the WLAN Cube, however, experimentally via the configuration menu to the GSM-only mode. Afterwards we were shown a strong signal.

 

In addition to the signal strength of the received mobile network, the configuration menu for the Huawei E5180 router also shows the current connection time and the transferred data volume. The WLAN status and information about the connected users are also available.

 

congstar as well as the manufacturer Huawei officially speak the E5180 Cube of a WLAN range of up to 250 meters. We have not achieved this value in practice. However, the signal is quite comparable to that of a classic DSL router like an AVM FRITZ! Box 7490. A mobile hotspot is much weaker. If, for example, a Huawei E5776 is only sufficient for supplying a small apartment or a hotel room, the congstar WLAN Cube can quite well cover a one-family house with wireless Internet access.

 

 

Speed Test Good

We have continuous operated the wireless hotspot over several days. Internet access was always reliably available. A restart of the router was not required to stay on reception. The two lights on the outside of the device, which on the one hand display WLAN availability and, at the very least, the current strength of the received LTE signal, is practical.

 

Over several days, we have examined the data transfer rates offered by congstar’s internet access. The provider itself provides up to 20 MBit/s in the downstream. This value was also achieved in the test, whereby the LTE signal strength also plays a role here. If only a medium reception level is displayed on the router, the data throughput also drops.

 

 

On average, we reached between 20 and 21 MBit/s in the downstream and 5 to 6.5 MBit/s in the upstream. The response times were between 17 and 25 ms. The congstar homespot therefore provided similar performance data, such as a VDSL-25 connection in the fixed network. Even the somewhat higher latencies compared to the fixed net do not make themselves noticeable with normal surfing, with the use of e-mails, fairs, etc. It may not be the case for gamers, who need the lowest possible ping times.

 

It should be borne in mind that our performance tests have only been carried out at the location in Hessian Spessart, which is registered as the usage address for the congstar Homespot. We also carried out measurements on different days and at different times of the day. The results were quite similar, with Telekom’s LTE-800 radio cell, which is available here, with a unrestricted data SIM generally providing data rates between 40 and 50 MBit/s in the downstream.

However, our results are not comparable to data rates and ping times at other sites. Depending on the number of users and the user behavior, depending on the network configuration and capacity, there can be significant differences. Above all, in cities it is quite possible that the well-developed LTE network of the Telekom has some overloading phenomena.

 

In summary, the Huawei E5180 congstar homespot is good for wireless supply at a house, but missing the 5GHz WiFi band. The Ethernet port is also good for desktop and the internet speed is also good for most cases.

HTC U11 New Flagship Smartphone Available with LTE Cat16

 

HTC has introduced a new flagship smartphone: the HTC U11. The successor of the HTC 10 starts with very good technical data as a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium in the market. In free trade, the HTC U11 is sold as a dual SIM version, which is rather untypical for flagship smartphones \and therefore particularly interesting. Also quite extraordinary: the HTC U11 comes with the latest Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 835. The X16 modem included offers LTE category 16, depending on the network, data rates of up to 1 Gbit/s are possible. Higlight is the pressure-sensitive body (“Edge Sense”) as well as the ultrapixel camera.

Design with glass and metal

The 2016 flagship HTC has yet shipped with a metal case, the HTC U11, however, has a glass back, as you already know from the HTC U Ultra. Only the frame is still metal. There are a total of 5 different colors, but some colors such as red may comes later available.

The display is based on a 5.5 inch LCD with a 16: 9 aspect ratio (2560 x 1440 pixels) protected by Corning 3D Gorilla glass. Unlike LG on the G6 or Samsung on the S8, the HTC U11 does not have a special aspect ratio, which affects the dimensions of 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9 millimeters.

 

A particularly innovative feature is “Edge Sense”. The HTC U11 reacts laterally in the lower body area to pressure, so certain functions can be started quickly and easily, for example the camera. Basically Edge Sense is freely assignable, in the summer HTC would like to make an app available, which should then also allow macros.

 

Art technology

HTC is one of the first manufacturers to introduce the modern Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. The heart of the smartphone contains many important components, especially processor, modem and WLAN chipset. The processor is a 64bit octa core, clocked at up to 2.45 GHz per core. The entire chipset is manufactured in the 10nm process and is therefore particularly energy-saving. The HTC U11 stands in the variant with 64 GB user memory by the way 4 GB of RAM available. A memory expansion via MicroSD card is possible; however, the dual SIM function is blocked.

The HTC U11 is especially up-to-date with the integrated modem. The Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 modem supports up to 1 Gbit/s in the LTE Cat16 downlink, up to 150 Mbps in the LTE Cat15 uplink. This is made possible by up to four bundled LTE frequency bands (4CC Carrier Aggregation) and by the 256QAM modulation in the downlink. The real speed that can be achieved depends, of course, also on the mobile network, in some countries, currently up to 500 MBit/s via LTE is possible. VoLTE and WiFi calling are, of course, also supported, as long as the network operator offers these services in his network. The LTE frequency ranges, which are supported by the HTC U11 as below:

  • FDD: band B4 / B12 / B17 / B28B20 / B5 / B8 / B3 / B1 / B7 / B32
  • TDD: band B39 / B40 / B38 / B41

In particular the support for band 28 (700 MHz) and band 32 (1500 MHz) is interesting. Currently, these frequency ranges are not yet used by the network operators, but this is likely to be relevant in the future and the HTC U11 is therefore very well equipped for the coming years.

 

Very good camera

The camera has been the focus of HTC’s flagship models for years. Also the HTC U11 is the camera to be a highlight. It offers a resolution of 12 megapixels on the back and a resolution of 16 megapixels on the front. UltraPixel 3 technology is used on the back, 1.4μm pixels are designed to allow a lot of light to enter the sensor. According to DxO-Mark, HTC has the U11 as the currently best smartphone camera on the market.

Available from June

The HTC U11 can be pre-ordered immediately and is available from June. Some network providers may offer the single card version, but there is also dual-sim version on www.4gltemall.com .

ZTE MF79 WiFi Dongle VS Huawei E8372 Wingle

Since Huawei firstly released the USB Dongle with WiFi hotspot function (called Wingle), there are many 3G & 4G Wingle models in the market. The Huawei E355, E8231 are the 3G WiFi dongle. As the LTE networks are becoming the mainstream, 4G LTE WiFi dongles becomes well-known now. More and more users found they are very useful and easy to take. Here now, only three manufacturers Huawei & ZTE & Alcatel had provided such products to market. Huawei had presented the model Huawei E8278 and latest new Huawei E8372. ZTE follows the steps of Huawei and presented the 4G LTE WiFi stick ZTE MF79 and MF75. The Alcatel presents the Alcatel W800 series WiFi dongle. Today, we will have a look at the difference about the Huawei E8372 and ZTE MF79.




Appearance

 

The Huawei E8372 and ZTE MF79 are both in the shape of USB dongle. You can say it’s a 4G USB dongle but the real function is to work as a WiFi hotspot. Huawei E8372 has three small indicators on the body with Huawei logo. The indicators are to show the status of Signal, SMS and WiFi. ZTE MF79 only has two indicators of WiFi and signal.

 

The body cover can be pulled out and the SIM card slot is there. They also provide the slot for Micro SD card for users to share files through WiFi. Besides the Model number, IMEI number and S/N, there is also WiFi SSID and password available on the label. Huawei E8372 provides a QR code, which user can scan the code and get connected with the WiFi, so users don’t necessarily enter the long WiFi password. What’s more, there are two TS-9 connectors for external antenna in Huawei E8372 but ZTE MF79 doesn’t have the antenna connector.

Technical Specifications

 

The Huawei E8372 and ZTE MF79 can work as a mobile hotspot, the only difference between them and the 4G Mobile Hotspots is that they don’t have battery. They need get input power from PC or power adapter. Once plug in the SIM card and get connected and power on, they can automatically connect to WAN network. And they are also different from USB dongle because USB dongle must work with PC, but they can work once they get power supply, for example, they could plug into the USB power adapter and start working.

They could both support the LTE category 4 and achieve peak download speed up to 150Mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. And up to 10 wireless devices could connect to the WiFi from the two Wingle and access internet. The WiFi standard is 802.11 b/g/n with single band 2.4GHz. They both supports the LTE various band and has sub-models for different markets. Of course, the 3G UMTS and 2G GSM/GPRS networks are backward compatible.

Regarding the internet connection performance and stability, we would take test next time on different network environment. If you want to know more details, welcome to follow our blog: www.4gltemall.com .

Unlike Huawei E5771, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 has the power button and WPS button at the each side of the interfaces.

 

However, we didn’t find the ports for external antennas, which are available in many other Huawei E5 mobile hotspots.

 

Technical Specifications

 

As the latest Huawei Mobile WiFi, Mobile WiFi Pro 2 could support the latest LTE-A networks with LTE Cat.6 chipset to provide possible download speed to 300Mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. The Huawei E5771 WiFi Pro could support LTE Cat4 providing download speed to 150Mbps, which is only half of the speed from Mobile WiFi Pro 2. They both support 4G LTE TDD-LTE/FDD-LTE networks with backward of 3G & 2G networks.

As we know, the Huawei E5771 has many sub-models for different network providers and markets. There are Huawei E5771s-852, E5771s-856 and Huawei E5771h-937. We suppose the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 would also have many variant models, the specific model would be known when they are presented to the market.

 

As a mobile pocket WiFi, Huawei E5771 could support up to 10 wireless devices to access internet simultaneously while the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 can provide internet access for up to 32 users. And the RJ45 LAN port provides one more option for users get connected with internet.

 

The most attracting feature of the two Mobile WiFis should be working as the mobile power bank to charge other electric devices such as smartphones, Pads, Game terminals etc. The large battery of Huawei E5771 Mobile WiFi Pro shows its advantage on this point. It can only keep itself working long time, but also charge other devices for many times.

The WLAN standards of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 are IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac with dual-band while Huawei E5771 provides WLAN on 802.11b/g/n, missing ac and single band on 2.4GHz.

 

Management

As the standard offer for Huawei devices, Huawei Mobile WiFi app is available for users to do simple setup of the two mobile routers and if you need the advanced setting, you’d better enter into the web interface 192.168.x.1 from a browser.

In our opinion, the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 looks cool in appearance, and with the advanced features for LTE networks, it’s really useful for users, but Huawei E5771 WiFi Pro’s large battery and decent function, which is also enough for most users.

LTE CAT 6 modem

 

The Vodafone GigaCube router, also named Huawei B528s-23a, internally has a modern HiSilicon modem (Balong 722) which supports LTE category 6. In principle, the wireless connection can reach up to 300 MBit/s fast. In the upload, a maximum of 50 MBit/s can be achieved. The chip also supports the most important LTE bands for use in Europe. In detail, the LTE Bands includes band 1, 3, 7, 8, 20 and 32. If the LTE reception is not given, the GigaCube router can also switch to GMS or UMTS/HSDPA. Abroad, Vodafone excludes the use anyway! So you must get the unlocked Vodafone GigaCube if you want to use it abroad.

WLAN function with the GigaCube router

 

The GigaCube also provide the WLAN module supporting up to WLAN ac, so that wireless LAN with gigabit speed is also possible. The hotspot can bring up to 64 devices on the Internet simultaneously. On this point, the B528 is really powerful than its predecessor Huawei E5180 and E5170.

 

Other characteristics

Fortunately, there are two antenna ports on the back of the GigaCube router. According to Vodafone, the focus is on use in the stationary and in remote areas. This means you can use the router both at home as a DSL replacement or just traveling as a mobile Internet connection. Mobile use is officially excluded. Thanks to the antenna connections, the reception strength ​​can also be improved in remote areas via external LTE antenna.  The B528 also does not have an information display, but only 4 Info-LEDs on the front. These give the user the most important back-ups, such as signal strength.

The only annoyance with the GigaCube router is that it was dispensed with even a battery. Thus, a permanent, stationary power supply is required. Also the GigaCube missed an SD card slot or USB port. Telephone is not possible by the way.

 

 

Conclusion

Based on the Huawei B528, Vodafone offers a powerful, modern router for its GigaCube. The model is practical and comes without much fault. Only the missing battery is annoying. We would do the performance test once we get the GigaCube in hand, keep close eye on www.4gltemall.com if you are interested in Vodafone GigaCube or Huawei B528 LTE Cube.
