On the other hand, the E5771 has a small LED’s on the slice, which indicate the essential information, one for the data transfer activity, the other 4 indicating the status of the battery. In addition to these LEDs, the power button on the upper face and having the initials “Hi  ” comes alive with different colors of green, orange and red, indicating the reception quality of the 3G/4G signal.


Of course and as usual, all the indications SSID, Wifi password and Barcode to flash for a smartphone, are located under the hood of the Huawei E5771. Still under the hood, there is a SIM card slot in micro-SIM format and the slot for a micro-SD storage card (up to 32 GB), for storing data. The connected devices with E5771 could share the data in the storage card.

They are the latest new models with advanced technology, but it’s a pity, they don’t have the large battery as E5771.


Huawei Prime E5878 VS Huawei E5786 Mobile Hotspot

More and more Huawei 4G pocket Wifi hotspots are available in the market, some customers feel confused about the models. Now there are two new mobile hotspots, Huawei E5786 and Huawei Prime E5878. Some customers just know their name, but what’s the key difference between them? Any difference about the specifications? That’s the big concern.


Today, we will tell the real difference between the two models. From three aspects, we can see the difference.




From the first sight, we can see Huawei Prime E5878 is more like a mobile phone, not a pocket hotspot. Huawei E5786 looks like the predecessor Huawei E5776. The body of them are very slim size like a credit card, just for one hand. The thickness of Huawei E5878 is just 7.5 mm, we suppose it’s the thinnest 4G Mobile WiFi Hotspot. Because Huawei E5786 has more power capacity of battery, it’s thicker than E5878. They both look cool, but we like Huawei E5878 more because the body feels good and it’s more like a iPhone. It would be perfect partner for Apple gadgets, such as iPhone, iPad.

Huawei E5878 has the power button on the body side while the power button of E5786 is on the front side besides the screen. The screen will help user know more details about the connected status, such as data used, WiFi password, network operator, battery status and connected user numbers etc…


Technical Specifications


This should be the key difference. Huawei Prime E5878 is a LTE Category 4 Hotspot supporting download speed to 150Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. Huawei E5786 is much more powerful than E5878. E5786 can support download speed to 300Mbps, almost double of the speed from Huawei Prime E5878. What’s more, the upload speed of E5786 can reach 150Mbps, which also dominates the 4G mobile WiFi hotspots. They both support 3G UMTS/DC-HSPA+ networks.


Both of them could support up to 11 wireless devices to access internet. But Huawei E5878 has only 1900mAh battery while Huawei E5786 has larger power capacity to 3000mAh, which makes it can be a power bank for smartphones or Pads. To make the devices work more stable, their batteries are irremovable and rechargeable.

SIM card slot


The Huawei Prime E5878 has a SIM slot like iPhone, and the SIM card is NANO Sim, the Huawei E5786 is still using the standard 6-pin SIM card and no SIM card slot.




They both have built-in antennas to strength the signal. But if you want to have better data connection, Huawei E5786 would be better because it has two external antenna connectors (TS-9 type), which can connect high-gain antenna. It’s a pity that Huawei Prime E5878 doesn’t has external antenna connector. For normal use at home or office, it will not influence the wireless connection. But in poor signal area, it would be a headache if data transfer in slow speed.



After our introduction, you may have a general idea for the Huawei Prime and Huawei E5786. If you want to experience the latest technology, Huawei E5786 would be a good option. But if you want to a cool pocket WiFi, Huawei Prime E5878 would be enough for use.
