Huawei E5220 Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot is a small mobile pocket router that can forward the UMTS internet connection via WiFi for up to 10 devices simultaneously. In comparison with other portable Wi-Fi hotspots, we will soon find out that the Huawei E5220 without contract belongs to the best devices of its kind. With the low weight of only 66 grams and dimensions of 90 mm x 56 mm x 14.4 mm, Huawei E5220 is a unique mobile hotspot. And the price of Huawei E5220 is good, so how does the price affect the performance? Let’s have a look at the result of HUAWEI E5220 test.
HSPA+ up to 21.6 Mbit/s
Following the Huawei E5 series, Huawei E5220 also works both in GSM network and the UMTS network, LTE is not supported. In the UMTS network, the download speed of up to 21.6 Mbit/s via HSPA+ is available, of course, it depends on the configuration and utilization of the network. In the test, we use the HUAWEI E5220 under the Vodafone network, a maximum speed of 14 Mbit/s downstream and 3.3 Mbit/s upstream; while with the network of Deutsche Telekom, the speeds 4.2 Mbit/s for downstream and 4.1 Mbit/s for Upstream were possible. The ping times were at 35 - 80 milliseconds over UMTS, depending on network and usage. The usable frequency bands are the 900 and 2100 megahertz with UMTS/HSPA+, and 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for GSM/EDGE.
Four status LEDs on the front panel next to the Power button indicate the current operating status. Further information can be obtained only through the web UI of Huawei E5220, more on that. The connection to the computer via Wi-Fi in the 2.4 GHz band, up to 72 MBit/s is supported (Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n). Even if you are not too far from the router, the full 72 Mbit/s WLAN connection speed can’t come true at the terminal.
Only 3 hours battery life
The size of HUAWEI E5220 is very slim and in pocket size. The battery of Huawei E5220 removable and the capacity is only 1150 mAh, so in the test, the working time only lasts just under 3 hours at use in the train and at stationary use. On the other hand , the expensive 4G Mobile devices like the Huawei E5776 offer up to 10 hours. Positive note, the battery is easily replaceable and can therefore be replaced with a defect without effort.
The operation of the Huawei E5220 hotspots is normally done via a web interface in the browser. There, next to the SIM pin, for example, network technology (automatic, 2G only, 3G only) or the provider could be selected. Information is also available about data volume and the online time. For smartphones and tablets with the Android operating system or iOS, an app is also available, which also presents the most common settings and information.
Conclusion: simple mobile WiFi hotspot
After the test, one thing is certain: Those who seeks extras like an external antenna port or a slot for memory cards, the Huawei E5220 is definitely wrong model because E5220 has not the external antenna connector and the SD card slot. But for those who want to surf high speed on UMTS, not LTE, Huawei E5220 is definitely worth a look: price, size and weight are unbeaten so far, as well as our Pocket WiFi column shows.
Here now, Huawei E5220 is already branded for the operator Vodafone, the model number is Vodafone R206. If you want the branded E5220, Vodafone R206 is a good option for you.

After a long time, HUAWEI offered a new router again-- the AF23, which can help a number of users to surf the Internet with Huawei 3G & 4G surf sticks via LAN or WLAN. Huawei AF23 has no built-in modem, so it must operate with a USB surf stick. We must pay attention to the highest possible speed of the HUAWEI AF23: the amazingly small router provides speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s over Wi-Fi and it’s also suitable for excellent Huawei E3276 LTE sticks.
Included a USB cable and a power adaptor, Huawei AF23 is not expensive as a wireless router. Huawei AF23 is not integrated with a battery which keeps the price low, but the HUAWEI AF23 can’t work as mobile 4G router like HUAWEI E5776. So it’s better to use the HUAWEI AF23 as a stationary router. The English Short Guide describes the basic features, no further information is provided.
Huawei AF23 supports two modes of operation:
- Work as pure access point with the DSL or cable connection via WAN port on the back
- Operation with USB surf sticks to access the wireless Internet
Normally, it’s easy to let HUAWEI AF23 working as 4G wireless router if you have a 4G Surfstick: simply plug a Huawei surf stick into the router, wait a few seconds and then you can connect via LAN or WLAN to the internet. The APN will be entered only in rare cases, most SIM card and network provider are detected automatically. If some adjustments are necessary, user can enter the web UI (192.168.8.1) in the browser and change the parameter accordingly.
Like other routers, Huawei AF23 LTE Sharing dock also shows the important information such as the data consumption and reception strength about the mobile Internet. But the exact radio technology (only 2G, 3G or 4G) cannot be seen through this router. Nevertheless, the usual settings about the encryption can be made, and also an FTP server can be configured when using a memory card to the USB port instead of a surf stick.
The speeds of Huawei AF23 are amazing and convincing in every respect. This is evident for connecting to the internet: after 20-25 seconds, the router is connected to the Internet. Wherever many networks are available, HUAWEI AF23 will always choose the fastest network. In the test with Huawei E3276, the Vodafone LTE network was connected in almost 20 seconds. At the same time, we test with the Huawei E3331, which takes only took a little longer to connect to the Telekom UMTS network. The integrated Wi-Fi module, unfortunately only works in the 2.4 GHz band and abandoned the use of the 5 GHz range. For the use of LTE Category 3, the almost perfect downlink speed could reach up to 90 Mbit/s in my test under Deutsche Telekom LTE network. But when working with AF23, the speed could up to 300Mbps via WiFi.
The range of the wireless network from HUAWEI AF23 could cover around 50meters, which is suitable for a small house or a bigger apartment with thick walls. LEDs on the AF23 dock router indicate the current operating status, so users can have a quick glance whether the device is connected to the Internet and working normally.
All in all, Huawei AF23 is a good WiFi router. The unit does exactly what it should do: to provide the Internet connection with a USB surfstick to support multiple devices quickly and easily surf. There are no compatibility issues there: all Huawei surf sticks manufactured since middle of 2009 are supported, future models can easily be added via firmware update.

Vodafone R215 LTE Mobile Wi-Fi Router is the successor to the Vodafone R210 router. The device is manufactured by Huawei and again technically similar to the Huawei E5372 4G LTE Category 4 Mobile Hotspot, where Vodafone has naturally customized not only the exterior but also the firmware. Vodafone R215 Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot is a new LTE Category 4 Mobile Router, which allows data rates of up to 150 megabits per second for downstream and up to 50 Mbit/s for upstream. All three LTE Frequency bands used in Germany (800, 1800 and 2600 MHz) are supported.
Replaceable battery and memory card
Just like almost of the LTE surf sticks, the R215 mobile Wi-Fi router can be common to insert a microSD memory card. The data stored on it could be shared to all devices that are connected to the hotspot R215 under request. Compared to other Vodafone LTE hotspot, Vodafone R215 has a special feature; it is the removable battery that can be replaced quickly. The R210’s battery can’t be removed or replaced. Unfortunately, the capacity of 1780 mAh is not very high, which can keep continuously operating up to 6 hours.
Technically speaking, a modem chipset of Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon is included in the Vodafone R215, which not only supports LTE with up to 150 Mbit/s, but also works on DC-HSPA+ network in the UMTS, and the EDGE/GSM network are backward. If the Vodafone R215 is working in areas with poor reception, user can be strengthen the signal through two external 4G antennas; through the two ports, the R215 Hotspot will even support MIMO in LTE network.
The Vodafone R215 LTE hotspot router will come soon in Germany on the market; the prices are not yet known. But if you like HUAWEI brand, it would be better to take HUAWEI E5372, the E5372 is SIM unlocked and would support most of 4G networks and 4G operators in Europe and Asia. Here now, the HUAWEI E5372 is available on www.4gltemall.com . If you can’t wait to enjoy the 4G 150Mbps, HUAWEI E5372 is a one of the great hotspot for you.
