Working as advertised

Works great! Using it as a Wi-Fi hotspot in my car. Just plug it into a 5V car charger and off you go. Also using it to stream music while driving and works flawlessly.

Good for basic needs.
The set-up instructions aren't very clear (or in order), so you may have to google it.
The range is decent, but not great. You can be in the next room, but more than that the signal drops.
I've found the speed to be quite a bit slower than my phone's speed, but I don't know if the carrier (using a different carrier than my phone) or the device is to blame.
It makes a subtle high-pitch noise if you listen carefully. But you don't hear it if you don't try to.
There's a handy QR-code in the package insert for the app to control the wingle with your phone. But you need to be connected to its wifi to use the app. The app detects the wingle automatically.
The wingle allows you to send and receive smses via the app or the web interface, but I haven't tested that feature.
The wingle allows your computer to connect via USB or wifi.
This version is a better buy than its batteried counterpart, given that the 1500 battery increases the price by a lot more than the price of a 10000 power bank, which you can use to power the wingle.
Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase.

Bought this device for my brother and was impressed with its performance. `will be buying another one - it's portable and seems to just work!
