POCKET WI-FI

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

With the pop­u­lar­ity of data­hog­ging smart­phones, tablets and tele­vi­sions, there has been a surge in the de­mand for por­ta­ble Wi-Fi routers.

The Huawei Wi-fi E5331 is a com­pact router meant to work with your data SIM. This white peb­ble-shaped light­weight router is small enough to go in your pocket. It has a OLED dis­play as well as four LED icons for net­work, Wif-Fi, bat­tery and mes­sage. A green glow means a strong sig­nal and full bat­tery, whereas red is in­di­cated no sig­nal and low bat­tery.

Con­fig­ur­ing the router was easy and we just had to in­sert the SIM card in the slot be­low the bat­tery. When we turned on the router, we were able to de­tect the net­work and con­nect to the router. You will need to read the man­ual though.

Wi-Fi E5331 comes with a 1500 mAh recharge­able bat­tery that gave us close to four hours of work on a sin­gle charge. The Huawei E5331 can con­nect up to five de­vices and of­fer a max­i­mum of 21mbps. Our Re­liance SIM gave us a down­load speed of 3.16 MB and upload speed of 1.60 MB.
