They both provide WiFi 802ac on dual-bands and support up to 32 wireless devices with 2 x 2 MIMO technology. But there are many obvious differences to note:

  1. LTE Frequency Bands

Huawei E5885 and TP-link M7450 both support FDD-LTE & TDD-LTE networks, but TP-link M7450 supports mainly the frequency bands popular in Asia and Europe. Huawei E5885 supports LTE band 4, which is widely deployed in American areas, so Huawei E5885 could not only work well in Aisa and European countries, it can also work well in American countries.

 

  1. Battery

Like other TP-link LTE mobile WiFi, he TP-link M7450 battery is removable and has the capacity of 3000mAh, while the Huawei E5885 has a battery pack of 6400mAh and the battery is non-removable. The large battery of Huawei E5885 makes it work like a power bank to charge other devices, which is a very useful function. With the large battery, Huawei E5885 is a little bit thicker than common 4G pocket WiFi routers.

  1. Interface

TP-link M7450 has only a Mini USB port for charge, but Huawei E5885 has not only the Mini USB port to charge and the USB 2.0 port to charge other devices, but also one Ethernet port for both LAN & WAN, which is also a practical function if user travel to places where only Ethernet connection is available.

 

  1. Price

The TP-link M7450 price is a little bit more expensive than Huawei E5885 price, but not too much. But we don’t think the TP-link M7450 is worth this price, on this price, you can consider the higher level pocket WiFi Netgear Aircard 810s.

 

In conclusion, we think the Huawei E5885 is more powerful and practical for users. And we recommend Huawei E5885 if you would buy one pocket WiFi router from the two.

Summary

From the specs table, we can see the TP-Link Archer MR200 WAN feature is more advanced than TP-link MR6400. Except that the difference chipset, the TP-link MR200 router has three WiFi antennas and supports dual-band WiFi 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The TP-link TL-MR6400 has two WiFi antennas and supports only single WiFi band 2.4GHz. This feature makes them perform differently for data transmission. So if you would like to buy a TP-link 4G SIM router from the two models, TP-Link Archer MR200 is better to buy.

 

Frankly speaking, both the TP-link Archer MR200 and TL-MR6400 router prices are expensive compared with 4G LTE Routers from other brands such as Huawei 4G Router, ZTE 4G LTE Router. If you can accept other brands, we would like to recommend Huawei E5186 modem and ZTE MF286 LTE Router rather than TP-link MR200 and MR6400. With the cheaper price and better technical specifications, you will benefit more from other brands’ routers.

 

 

 

Huawei E5885 VS Netgear Aircard 790s

We had introduced the Huawei Cat6 Pocket WiFi one month ago. As a new 4G+ Cat6 MiFi, Huawei E5885Ls-93a was added to the Cat6 router list. However, there are many similar 4G LTE pocket WiFi in the market. Netgear Aircard 790s is one of the LTE Cat6 MiFi routers. Somebody had asked what the difference is between the Huawei E5885Ls-93a and Netgear AC790S and which one is better to buy.
