You may have known the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770, as the first generation of Huawei 4G mobile hotspot with Ethernet port and SIM card slot, Huawei E5770 had gained a very good reputation. And now Huawei presented a new upgraded model Huawei E5885, which also has an Ethernet port and SIM card slot. Somebody may ask: What’s the difference between the Huawei E5885 and E5770? What features had been upgraded in E5885? The questions would be answered in this article.
Appearance and Interfaces
Huawei E5770 has a 0.96 inch OLED display on the front to show the internet connection status. Below the display, it’s Huawei logo. The power and WPS buttons are on the top edge side. The Ethernet port and USB input & output ports are covered by a cap. A user needs to open the cap to see the interfaces. The back cover can be opened. Open the back cover, the SIM card slot and SD card slot can be found. On the back cover, it indicates 5200mAh battery. The battery is built-in and non-removable. Unlike other Huawei Mobile WiFi, we can’t find the connectors for external antennas.
Following the design of Huawei E5770, the Huawei E5885 also has a small display on the front to show the connection status. The power button, WPS button, USB ports and Ethernet port are all at the same position like E5770. The difference is that the Huawei E5885 is thicker than the E5770, perhaps because it’s configured with a large battery of 6400mAh, which is shown on the back cover. The Huawei E5770 has black and white colors available while the new Huawei E5885 has the pink & black and black & gold colors.
From the appearance, we can see the two mobile hotspots are very similar in design. The thickness and colors are different. Then let’s have a look at the comparison of Huawei E5770 specs and Huawei E5885 specs. Since Huawei E5770 has only one variant model E5770S-320 and Huawei E5885 has only one variant model E5885Ls-93a. We will compare the Huawei E5770s-320 and E5885Ls-93a:
