HUAWEI E5331 3G MobilePocket WiFi is the lastest most popular portable 3G hotspot from HUAWEI. Perhaps because its fashion design and good price, after released to market, HUAWEI E5331 mobile 3G router soon becomes the new star in HUAWEI E5 family.
HUAWEI E5331 Mobile WiFi supports 3G UMTS 900/2100Mhz, and it seems it’s more apt for European area. Different from HUAWEI E586 and E560, it support maximum 8 users to share the network. And the operation icon is more simple, just one button on the front. There is no LED screen display, just 4 indicators with the power button. Perhaps the LED screen save the cost of HUAWEI E5331 Pocket WiFi.
Frankly speaking, HUAWEI E5331 is more powerful than HUAWEI E586, and price is much cheaper, we suppose it’s the chipset change. But we didn’t get any official information about this.
There is only one USB Slot at the side of E5331, which is to give power support to E5331. Below is the genera review of HUAWEI E5331 Pocket WiFi:
