As the top telecom equipment supplier, Huawei LTE WiFi routers had gained a great reputation worldwide based on the good performance and reasonable good price. Since there are many Huawei 4G WiFi Routers(https://www.4gltemall.com/4g-wireless-router/huawei-4g-lte-wifi-router.html) available in the market, for those who are not familiar with Huawei routers, itâ€™s still a big problem to buy a best 4G WiFi router(https://www.4gltemall.com/4g-wireless-router.html) for them. Huawei B315 and B618 are two popular Huawei WiFi routers if a customer wants to buy one router from them, which one to choose? Whatâ€™s the main difference between Huawei B618 and B315? You will find the answer in this article.
Huawei 4G Router B315(https://www.4gltemall.com/huawei-b315-lte-cpe.html) was available since 2016 and itâ€™s in a traditional router shape. However, the latest Huawei B618 was presented to the public since the second half year of 2017. And Huawei B618 is in a cube shape, which makes you think itâ€™s a kind of furniture rather than a wireless router. From the pics below, you can see the different shape of the two routers. On the front of Huawei B315, there is Huawei logo and a few LED indicators for power, WiFi, internet, signal status. Huawei B618 has the Huawei logo on the top side, the WPS button is in the middle of WiFi signal and other status indicators such as Power, WiFi, LAN, Status, Mode.
On the back, the Ethernet port and connectors for 4G external antenna are located. Since Huawei may assign the router with many variant models, the Ethernet port quantity may vary. The Huawei B618s-22d has two LAN ports (one is for LAN/WAN) and one phone port with a USB 2.0 port. As one of the variant model of Huawei B315, Huawei B315s-22 has four LAN ports (one is for LAN/WAN) and one phone port with USB 2.0 port. However, another variant model Huawei B315s-936 doesnâ€™t have the phone port and USB 2.0 port. They all have two connectors for external antenna, the Huawei B315 connector type is SMA while the Huawei B618s-22d antenna connector is in TS-9 type. If you would like to buy the external antenna for the two router, you may check the professional 4g antenna shop(https://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna.html).
The power button and WPS button of Huawei B315 are on the top side of the router. And the label for product detail is on the bottom side of the body. The SIM card slot of Huawei B315 is on the back side of the body while Huawei B618 locates the SIM card slot at the bottom. The Huawei B618 has the label at the bottom too with the WPS button.
From the appearance, you may still have trouble to select which one for you. Then the specs of the Huawei B618s-22d and Huawei B315 would tell whatâ€™s the key point of the difference between the two routers:
