Difference between Huawei E5786 and E5885

It has been months since the Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro 2 was released to market and we had introduced this new 4G router in details. If you had used the Huawei first LTE cat6 mobile router, you may know the Huawei E5786 4G hotspot. Today, we will have a look at what’s the difference between the Huawei E5885 and E5786.

Appearance

As we introduced before, the Huawei E5885(available model called E5885Ls-93a) follows the design of the Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro. On the front upper side, there is only a small screen to show connection information. The upper side is made of plastic but looks cool, the below part is made of high quality leather, which makes it feels very good in hand. Huawei logo is on the leather.  The whole body of Huawei E5786 is made of plastic, but it also feels good and slippery. The Huawei logo and power button are located at each side of the screen of E5786.

On the back of Huawei E5786, there is Huawei logo with “mobile WiFi”. The Huawei E5885 back has Huawei logo and words “CAT6/6400mAh/23Wh” which indicates the mobile router is a LTE Category 6 mobile hotspot with 6400mAh battery for 23 hours working time.

The back cover of Huawei E5885 and E5786 can be opened. In the Huawei E5885, we can see the SIM card slot and Micro SD card slot are located, where there is a reset button in red. Below is a label with the model number, IMEI number, SSID, WiFi key, IP address, user name and password. One QR code is also included so as to scan and connect. The Huawei E5786 also has the SIM card and MicroSD card slot lying together. What’s more, two TS-9 connectors for external antennas are covered by a cap. However, there is no antenna connector in Huawei E5885.

Technical Specifications

The Huawei E5885 and E5786 are both LTE cat6 mobile hotspot which could support LTE download speed up to 300Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. They both provide variants for different carriers and various LTE frequency bands. The WLAN standard supports latest 802.11ac with dual band. Huawei E5786 could support up to 10 wireless devices to access internet through WiFi while the latest Huawei E5885 supports maximum up to 32 users. They both use the Micro SIM card. The Huawei E5885 provides one more connection by Ethernet cable while Huawei E5786 can only keep connected with SIM card.

Battery

The back cover of the Huawei E5786 and E5885 can be opened, but the battery of them can’t be removed for change. The battery of Huawei E5786 is 3000mAh, which can keep working for 10 hours. While the Huawei E5885 has larger battery of 6400mAh, which would provide 23 hours working time. They both can charge other electric devices as a mobile power bank. However, the Huawei E5786 needs an accessory call AF18 adapter to make this function true. The Huawei E5885 can directly charge other devices without any problem.

 

What’s more, the Huawei E5885 has a special USB cable with the device. The USB cable can be used as a lifting rope, which is really a smart and practical design. The Huawei E5786 uses the normal USB 2.0 cable for charging.

From the comparison, we think there is no doubt that the latest Huawei E5885 is much better than the E5786, ont only on the design but also the practical functions. So if you are looking for a wonderful mobile hotspot, we think Huawei E5885 is good to recommend.

ZTE UFi MF980 VS UFi MF970

With the upgrade of LTE network to LTE Advanced or Advanced PRO, the vendors are also trying to upgrade their wireless gadgets so as to meet the market demand. As we introduced the ZTE MF970 UFi last year, ZTE presented a new 4G LTE Router ZTE UFi MF980 as a successor. In this article, we will see what has been improved on the new ZTE MF980 UFi comparing to ZTE MF970.

Appearance

As we showed the images, ZTE MF970 UFi is in white color and the screen is on the middle of front with “ZTE” and “UFi” listed at each side of the 1.44 inch screen. Following this design, ZTE MF980 UFi also has a 1.44 inch screen and the same two words ZTE and UFi, but MF980 is in black color. But ZTE MF980 is thinner than MF970 and has long body.

ZTE MF980 has power and func button on the top edge, which is same to ZTE MF970, but the SIM card slot is also with the two buttons in MF970, while the SIM card slot is at the opposite edge in ZTE MF980. The two connectors for external antenna for ZTE MF980 are located together while the MF970 has two connectors located at each side of the USB 2.0 port, where ZTE UFi MF980 has USB3.0 port. On the back, UFi MF980 has ZTE logo on while the MF970 shows some information about certificate for CE, WiFi and RoHS.

Technical Specifications

As we introduced before, the ZTE UFi MF970 is a LTE Category 6 mobile router which could support peak download speed to 300mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. In real product, it may be the Vodafone R226 or R226Z model. As the upgraded model for LTE advanced network, ZTE MF980 UFi supports LTE category 9 technologies and peak download speed to 450Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. They both support the common LTE FDD & TDD networks with 3G UMTS and 2G GSM networks backward. On this point, there is no doubt that ZTE MF980 UFi is more powerful than ZTE MF970 if working on LTE-A networks.

ZTE UFi MF970 could support up 14 wireless terminals to access internet when working with a valid SIM card, while the new MF980 UFi can support almost double of the qty to 32 WiFi-enabled devices. They both provide the WLAN standard to latest 802.11 ac with dual-band.

 

Battery

Like Huawei E5786 4G Mobile Hotspot, the ZTE MF970 and MF980 are both with the built-in battery, which can’t be removed for change. One question that we don’t understand is that the newer model ZTE UFi MF980 has battery capacity to 2200mAh when the predecessor MF970 has larger battery to 2300mAh. Many of the current 4G mobile router with same level are with 3000mAh battery or even more. What frustrating is the battery can’t be removed for backup battery. So if you would keep them working for long time, you’d better to take a bank power with large capacity. On this point, the latest Huawei E5885Ls-93a seems more powerful with LTE-A support and built-in large battery.

Summary

There is no doubt that the ZTE MF980 UFi is powerful on technical features, especially working on LTE advanced Pro networks for multiple users with group activities. But the decent battery would limit its long term performance. ZTE MF970 UFi is also good if you don’t quite need the LTE advanced pro network and just need a budget mobile pocket router.

 

 

Huawei E5885 LTE Mobile WiFi Pro 2 Available

Huawei recently introduced a new 4G Mobile router as a successor to the popular Huawei E5770 Mobile WiFi Pro Hotspot: the Huawei E5885 (Mobile WiFi Pro2). The LTE router offers a 6,400 mAh strong battery, which is to allow up to 25 hours of operating time and, of course, besides the usual WLAN, an RJ45 LAN connection is again available. The integrated LTE modem is twice as fast as the predecessor with up to 300 MBit/s for download. The Huawei E5885 is only available in Asia now. In Europe, the device is only yet available.

LTE Cat6

The E5885Ls-93a version, which is currently available in the online market, is intended for the Asian market. Most of the packaging is labeled in Chinese or English and the supported frequency bands mainly take into account the Asian needs. Nevertheless, according to the data sheet from Huawei, the Huawei E5885 also supports all LTE frequency bands (volume 3, 7, 8, 20) which are important for Europe areas. Also UMTS on 2100/900 MHz and GSM network are supported.

In comparison to the predecessor Huawei E5770, the speed is also important to note: the support of LTE category 6, ie up to 300 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 150 MBit/s in the uplink. LTE Cat6 with channel bundling (Carrier Aggregation) is now used by many network operators and therefore one should notice the improved modem in some situations. However, it is not particularly advanced, because the Netgear AC810 LTE Hotspots have been available for long time, which can reach 600 MBit/s (LTE Cat12) for download.

RJ45 LAN & WLAN

The Huawei E5885Ls-93a is particularly interesting because it offers a full RJ45 LAN connection. This allows devices without WLAN to be connected to the network without any problems, without the need for additional software, as well as to use the Ethernet port for Internet access and to use the E5885 as a WLAN hotspot without mobile radio. Something strange, however, appears the fact that the connection is a “normal” 100 Mbps LAN connection, where the LTE modem can use up to 300 MBit/s.

 

If you want to use the full modem speed, then must be forced on Wi-Fi. According to Huawei, up to 32 devices can be supplied simultaneously with the Internet, the speed should be better thanks to 802.11ac standard (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) in the best case than over LAN.

 

Large battery

Another unique feature of the Huawei E5885 Mobile WiFi Pro2 is the huge 6.400 mAh battery. Up to 25 hours of operating time should be possible. As an alternative to the predecessor, the device can be used as a power bank, for which a corresponding charging cable is already included in the package box.

Summary

Huawei E5885 is a good mobile 4G Router with powerful function for multiple situations. It’s cool in appearance and supports LTE advanced network. When Huawei presents the English versions for global market, we suppose it would be great gadget star in future.

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 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.
