It is lightweight, small, and can work for long periods without external power supply, drawing energy from the built-in battery.

The device weighs really low – only 77 g and the size is only like a credit card (but – of course it is thicker). Its casing is made of glossy plastic, which has a sleek design. On the front we find an OLED display. On the right side of the start button maker posted a router, a microSD card slot and a WPS button (Network Authentication). At the lower edge of the ZTE ME60 is a microUSB slot for charginging the battery and connect the router to your computer. On the other hand, on the left side you will find the external antenna connector – after connecting the external antenna, the transmission quality should increase significantly in areas where network coverage is weaker. Under the back cover you will find the battery and SIM card slot deeper.


The display informs us about the signal strength and number of connected devices. The connected users can be as much as 8 WiFi terminals. The MF60 is small and light enough that could be put in our bag and it never occupy too much space. Interestingly, if you put microSD card (up to 32 GB) into the mobile 3G router, the files or documents on the card could be shared with all devices connected to the ZTE.

After getting it from the box, we started by placing the SIM card slot and battery installation. Anyone can handle this task, because the process looks identical to the phone. The next step was to push the button on the side of the mobile router. The device immediately merged with the fastest Internet 3G mode, which were indicated on the display. The WiFi Password that MF60 makes contact with the computer is on the bottom. After WiFi key is entered and stored, the computer can get connected without any trouble. Further work is fully automatic and do not need to configure anything.
