TP-Link M7650 Review: Specifications

TP-Link M7650 is a portable LTE-A Category 11 hotspot allowing data download at speeds up to 600 Mb/s. With a 3000 mAh battery, the device can work up to 15 hours and can handle up to 32 devices.

TP-Link M7650 is not the first TP-Link 4G LTE mobile WiFi hotspot. The TP-Link MiFi series includes the M5350, whose successor is the LTE version TP-Link M7200.

The most interesting is the M7350, m7310, and m7450 mobile WiFi hotspots, which clearly show how mobile data transmission developed. The first two offer cellular LTE data transmission at DL 150Mbps/UL 50Mbps, while M7450 supporting LTE category 6 allows downloading at 300 Mbps and uploading at 50 Mbps. The hero of today’s test is a device supporting LTE category 11 (LTE-Advanced) and hence offering 600/50 Mbps in the mobile network.

TP-Link M7650 is based on the models M7310 and M7450. The device with dimensions of 112.5 x 66.5 x 16 mm contains a replaceable 3000 mAh battery, which, according to the manufacturer’s declaration, is sufficient for 15 hours of operation and as many as 900 hours in standby mode. In its predecessors (M7310 and M7350), the manufacturer TP-Link used 1800mAh and 2000 mAh batteries.

TP-Link M7650 Review: Usage

After removing the battery, there is a place for a micro SIM card and a micro SD memory card (up to 32 GB). The hotspot was made of gray, pleasant to the touch material. The front part is a black glossy element with a small (1.44 “diagonal) color LCD screen. It is not as big as Netgear models, eg AirCard 810, but the information displayed on it is very clear and the menu is transparent. On the sides of the screen there are two buttons– turning on the power supply and the hotspot menu control button. With the help of two buttons, we can easily navigate the menu of the device and activate the most important options.

Besides the TP-Link documentation, the set includes a nano SIM adapter– micro SIM, in addition to a USB cable for charging the device or wired communication using the NDIS standard.

With the change of mobile communication technology in the TP-Link mifi, the standards of wireless communication have also changed. Thanks to this, we can easily connect up to 32 wireless devices.

We will be testing the TP-Link M7650 on Celcom 4G+ network around Subang Jaya to see how good is the WiFi speed of the TP-Link M7650. The small screen can actually shows whether you are connected to a 4G+ network or not. It is also able to display the current network speed of the MiFi.

The 4G speed is really good on the TP-Link M7650. While driving around Subang Jaya, I can obtain over 50Mbps 4G+ download speed with ease. The performance is more or less the same compared to the 4G performance of my iPhone X. If I used it at somewhere with even better 4G+ signal, the LTE speed can be even better. Despite it is a small device, the WiFi coverage is pretty decent for a small apartment if you use 2.4 Ghz.
