Huawei E5885 VS Huawei E5770

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.

Specs

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:

They are the best sellers of Huawei Mobile Hotspots with Ethernet port. The Ethernet Port in the devices is for WAN & LAN. Here now, there are many mobile hotspots with Ethernet from other manufacturers, but some of them are only for LAN, not for WAN, which means you can only connect to the network via 4G SIM card. You cannot connect to WLAN network via Ethernet port.

 

The above mobile hotspots with Ethernet port support LTE to LTE-A networks, and 3G mobile hotspots available. You may find one for yourself if you have demand for such functions. And we have to mention that the large battery capacity in the Huawei E5885, E5770, and E5730, which can also charge other devices such as smartphones, gadgets etc…This could also be praised for the practical function.

Huawei Mobile WIFI PRO 2 E5885 Review

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 Released

Huawei had released a new 4G LTE Mobile WiFi a few days ago in Suadi Arabia, named Mobile WiFi Pro 2, which is to replace the current Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 on the market. As a 4G pocket router with practical functions, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 comes too later than that we expected.



Like its predecessor Huawei E5770, the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 combines the pocket router and power bank function into one device. It can not only provide wireless network through WiFi & Ethernet cable for high-speed internet connection, but also charge other electrical devices.

 

Appearance

 

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 upper surface features a high-definition OLED screen with a 0.96 inch diameter. And it is decorated with artistic patterns and a unique contrast in the used materials, while maintaining a user-friendly operating button. The Mobile WiFi Pro 2 uses a metal frame in the middle and also provides a stylish leather handle that caters to the tastes of users and provides the port for charging smart devices and for Ethernet cable. There is also Micro-SIM card slot and extra slot for Micro SD card of up to 32GB.

LTE Advanced (Cat.6) Support

With Huawei Hisilicon LTE Cat6 chipset, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 could support LTE-Advanced networks on LTE Category 6, which means it could achieve peak download speed to 300mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps on LTE networks. The speeds are almost double of that of the first generation Huawei Mobile WiFi E5770 on LTE Cat.4 networks. Of course, they are both backward with 3G UMTS/DC-HSPA+ and 2G GSM, which would be available once LTE network is missed.

 

WLAN Improvement

Huawei also improved the wireless function for Mobile WiFi pro 2 to support maximum up to 32 WiFi-enabled devices, while the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro supports only 11 users simultaneously. The WLAN features 802.11a/b/g/n/ac on dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz, but the Huawei E5770 had missed the ac standard and had only single band WiFi.

Large Battery Capacity of 6400mAh

The battery of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 is 6400mAh, it’s totally a common mobile power bank which can not only keep itself working for long time and also charge other terminals such as smartphones, Pads in case of power off. However, the capacity of 6400mAh may not be the best, because we know Huawei also had one Mobile WiFi named Huawei E5771 Mobile WiFi Plus, which has the large battery to 9600mAh. And other features are very similar to E5770.

 

Easy Connection without password

By using Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2, a connection can be established and devices can be identified using NFC technology or QR code and Huawei’s application HiLink without the need to search for the network and enter password to join the Wi-Fi network.

 

Here now, the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 is not yet available on the market, but we are keen to get this new 4G pocket router. We will show the test report once we get it. You can also keep close eye on www.4gltemall.com to get new information about Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 and other 4G mobile broadband.

Huawei E5573

 

External antenna

Like other Huawei 4G mobile hotspots, the Huawei E5573 has two TS-9 jacks for connecting an external LTE antenna. Thus, if the E5573 is used in areas with difficult reception conditions, the signal can be improved by connecting a 4G antenna. Here we have one smart antenna for Huawei E5573 to recommend: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna-two-ts-9-connector.html

4G LTE Indoor Antenna (2 x TS-9 Connectors) for Huawei/ZTE 4G LTE Modems/dongles/mobile hotspots

 

Battery

One important matter for a mobile router of course is still the battery. The Huawei E5573 has a capacity of 2300 mAh for about 6 hours of operation and 300 hours standby which is enough according to the manufacturer. In practice, you may found the battery is not really enough on intensive use. In this case, the similar model Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro or Huawei E5771 WiFi Plus may be better options because they have large power capacity for much longer working time.

Huawei E5573

Conclusion

 

 

Currently the Huawei E5573 is available on www.4gltemall.com. You can check the variants for different areas. And 4gltemall.com could ship the Huawei E5573 to anywhere of the world. It’s easy to get this pocket WiFi. Since the Huawei E5573 technically hardly differs from devices such as the Huawei E5577, it is still a good mobile WiFi Router.

 

ZTE MF903 4G Pocket WiFi Review

Following the steps of the competitor Huawei, the Chinese Telecom equipment vendor presents a new 4G Mobile WiFi Hotspot named ZTE MF903, which is very similar to Huawei Mobile Wifi Pro E5770. The Huawei E5770 mobile hotspot was proved to be a powerful portable 4G router with multi-functions. And ZTE MF903 copied almost all the features and comes to be a budget option for users.

ZTE MF903 LED indicators

The appearance of ZTE MF903 is not like E5770, which has a small screen to show full connection status when working. The MF903 has only a few indicators about battery, WiFi, message and signal. The left side of the indicator is ZTE logo and the right side is power button.

 

If you had read our introduction of Huawei E5770 hotspot, you may know the interfaces/ports are covered by a small tap, under which there are there ports for Ethernet cable, USB in and out. (If you want to know more about Huawei E5770, click here.)This design could protect the ports form dust. But the ports are open to air in ZTE MF903 hotspot.  The lucky thing is the Sim and SD card slots are protected by a cover.  The reset hole is at the side of SD card slot.

ZTE MF903 interfaces

ZTE MF903 is using ZX297520 while Huawei E5770 is based on Huawei Hisilicon chipset. Both of them can provide same functions. They can transfer the 4G wireless network from a SIM card to WiFi signal so that the connected devices via WiFi could access internet. This can make true of when user insert SIM cards to them. But if users connect an Ethernet cable to them, they can also transfer the network from Ethernet to WiFi, after connected with the WiFi, user can also surf freely.  The only difference on this is that Huawei E5770 could support up to 11 users while MF903 support only 8 devices.

ZTE MF903 charge smartphone

The shinning point of the two mobile hotspots is the large battery capacity, which would not only keep themselves long-time working but also charge other electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets, game terminals etc..

ZTE MF903 SIM and SD card slot

Regarding the technical specifications, ZTE MF903 and Huawei E5770 both support the LTE category 4 technology and could achieve download speed to 150Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. Both can work well on TD-LTE and FDD-LTE networks but it depends on the specific model number. And the download and upload speeds are theoretical under perfect environment, in practice, the speed can’t reach these speed due to network congestion or far distance to the cell tower. But they can also work on UMTS network if 4G LTE network is not available. What’s more, they both can be controlled by APP. For ZTE MF903 to use ZTELink while for Huawei E5770 to use Huawei mobile WiFi app. User can also manage the settings through web UI in the browsers.

ZTE MF903 back label

From the appearance and technical features, we can’t tell which one is better. But we think the Huawei E5770 would be at higher price than ZTE MF903 due to the Huawei’s brand reputation and quality trust from customers. We will do a network connection test next to see which one is better in performance.

Huawei E5351 3G 42Mbps Mobile WiFi Hotspot Review

We had introduced the Huawei E5151 pocket WiFi years ago, which is a 3G mobile WiFi router supporting download speed to 21Mbps and the most important feature of this pocket WiFi is that the E5151 has a port for LAN/WAN, which could connect with an Ethernet cable to get or share internet connection. At that time, some customers were wondering if there is newer model which could support higher speed connection, i.e. download speed is faster than 21Mbps.

Huawei E5351 E5351s-2

Actually, we had introduced the latest Huawei E5770 mobile WiFi Pro, which has LAN/WAN ports and supports download speed to 150Mbps on LTE Category 4 technology. And the Huawei E5770 has large battery of 5200mAh, which not only keeps itself long time working, but also works like a mobile power bank to charge other electronics such as smartphone or tablets. However, many customers said the price of Huawei E5770 is a little bit high; it’s not a budget pocket router. Really, it’s a high-end partner for wireless connection.

Huawei E5351 E5351s-2

Today, we will introduce another new mobile pocket router. The model number is Huawei E5351. It’s still a 3G mobile router and upgraded from huawei E5151 MiFi. From the appearance, we can see the Huawei E5351 is very similar to Huawei E5151, they both have a port for an Ethernet cable and USB interface. The LED indicators on the front and back logs are almost the same.

Huawei E5351 E5351s-2

 

The battery capacity of E5351 MiFi is still the same to E5151, only 1500mAh. For most users, it’s not enough for common use. The lucky thing is the battery can be removable, so if there is a spare battery or mobile power bank, it would be OK to use for long time. From this point, we would recommend the Huawei E5770 with large battery; users don’t worry about the power off when working with E5770.

Huawei E5351 E5351s-2

The key features of Huawei E5351 are listed below (same to E5151):

  1. Provide wireless internet connection through WiFi from the Ethernet cable
  2. Provide wireless internet connection through WiFi from the inserted SIM card
  3. Provide internet connection through Ethernet cable from inserted SIM card

 

The SIM card slot of Huawei E5351 is for a standard 6-pin SIM card, which is the same to E5151. But there is no slot for Micro SD card. The most important features should be the improvement of the wireless data transmission speed. Huawei E5351 could support almost double speed of that of E5151. With 3G DC-HSPA+ technology, Huawei E5351 could achieve peak download speed to 42Mbps while E5151 only support speed to 21Mbps. Like E5151, up to 10 wireless devices could access internet through Huawei E5351.

It’s no doubt that the RJ 45 port on the Huawei E5770 and E5730 is the top shinning feature. It provides much more possibility of network solution for user. Secondly, the large power capacity is also practical function for most users. As a mobile hotspot, they have the backup functions which can make users have great experience. Actually, they are similar and different at the same time: the power output and input ports and Ethernet port are both at the side. The ports on Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 are covered by a cap, so users have to open the cap and see all the ports. The Huawei E5730 is in white while the E5770 has two colors: white and black.

The boy difference is also obvious: Huawei E5730 has only one power button on the front, while Huawei E5770 has LED screen on the front. On the display, user can see the battery status, network status, SSID and password, connected WiFi users. The battery capacity of 5200mAh is printed on the back of Huawei E5770, but at the body side of E5730.

Huawei E5770 is a little bit thinner than E5730. The batteries in the two devices are both non-removable. But the back cover could be opened and the SIM card slot is there. Huawei E5770 has one SD card slot, but E5730 has no SD card slot. And there is stick besides the SIM card slot. It shows the model number, IMEI number, S/N number, SSID, WiFi password and QR-code to download Huawei Mobile WiFi APP.

The most attractive and important feature for them is the supported networks. Upgraded from Huawei E5730, Huawei E5770 could support peak download speed to 150mbps based on LTE Category 4 chipset. The upload speed could reach 50mbps. E5730 can’t reach the speed but as a 3G mobile hotspot, it’s almost one of the best 3G routers based on its specifications. When Huawei E5730 was on sales, somebody is asking: when can i buy the 4G version of Huawei E5730 with RJ45 port? Now Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 is available. This the version for 4G pocket router with RJ45. So if you like it, it’s time to get one.

Operation & Software

The operation of the Huawei E5770 is very simple. The SIM card must be plugged like an optional memory card under the removable rear panel. There you can find the activated WLAN password, and the address for the Web Interface and the password required for this. The SIM card is inserted together with the MicroSD card on the back. The operation and configuration via the web interface is quick and easily, both on desktop computers and on Tablet touchscreen. On the start screen, the consumed data volume and online time is displayed, on request you can have a look at detailed statistics or tariff limits deposit. It is also possible to receive and send SMS. Navigate to the tab “Settings”; you can set your machine accurately, about the wireless connection or the RJ45 Ethernet connection.

WLAN and Ethernet

The Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro offers three ways to access the Internet. First of course there’s the classic access via the mobile network so that up to 150 MBit/s accessible via LTE Cat4. Then you can also use the RJ45 Ethernet port as Internet access, which offers network connection at home, office or hotel. The third way to access the Internet is the so-called Wi-Fi Extender: the Huawei E5770 thus uses an existing wireless network to access internet.

 

All three types of access have worked well and without any problems in the test. Particularly interesting is the WiFi Extender function, because then it is also possible to connect multiple devices to a wireless network. As soon as the wireless network, the Huawei E5770 automatically switches from LTE to Wi-Fi access. Huawei E5770 could support up to 11 devices simultaneously. In LTE network, the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro Router provides a good reception and many supported frequency ranges, so that it can also be used abroad in many countries. Huawei E5770 would support LTE Advanced Cat4 and the LTE modem Cat4 could achieve 140Mbit/s in the test. It’s a pity that it can’t support LTE CAT6, also disappointed that Huawei mobile WiFi Pro doesn’t have connections for an external antenna.

Battery and More

With the amazing 5,200 mAh strong battery, the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi may be used up to 20 hours per operating as a mobile LTE hotspot. The full-size USB port allows charging other devices such as smartphones or tablets. Through the output of 5V / 2A, the charging goes very quickly. The battery capacity is proudly advertised. But the battery can’t be removed. Finally, a little word to the display on the front of the Huawei E5770: this is definitely smaller than many other mobile wireless hotspots of Huawei, but it does the job properly and provides all important information such as data usage and battery status clearly. With a short press on the power button, you can see the wireless password in screen.

Conclusion: A perfect solution for Travel

The Huawei E5770 is a good mobile LTE router with two great unique features: it is the first device of its kind with RJ-45 LAN port and simultaneous support for LTE and it is one of the few devices, which simultaneously can also be used as a power bank for charging other devices. Overall, the router can convince definitely, besides the classic functions of the wireless Extender function should be emphasized. But there are three drawbacks: the missing of 5GHz WLAN and connections for an external antenna, and the feature of LTE Cat6 with 300 Mbit/s is not supported. Even though, the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro is still a wonderful pocket WiFi router!

If you want the LTE cat6 mobile wifi, huawei E5786 may help you.
