Not for advanced users. While I agree with other reviewers that it works great, the downside is that you cannot disable the HiLink mode. Therefore, you end up with a double NAT issue when you try to use this device as a 4G failover connected to a firewall.

Works fantastically, I currently use it as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, similar to routers/dongles with a built-in battery. I use a 10,000 mAh power-bank to power it, works fine and lasts a hell of a lot longer than other routers I've used. Well worth the price in my opinion.
I purchased this as a replacement for a TP-Link TL-M7300 (https://www.takealot.com/tp-link-4g-lte-advanced-mobile-wi-fi/PLID41663445) which was bad enough that I'm mentioning it here to warn people away on other products pages.

Love this Wingle. Was rather skeptical at 1st almost to a point of not buying it, but am glad I bought it. I have it plugged on a 9000mAh Powerbank and use it as a hotspot. The Huawei HiLink app makes managing this Wingle a breeze, no need to take out the sim to load data.
When in use this Wingle can get quite hot, so I use my spare PC case fan cool it down and if I'm out and about, opening the front cover of the Wingle helps cool it down.
All in all... Money well spent.
