"It has some things going for it: It's relatively inexpensive and has terrific battery life. It supports up to 8 Wi-Fi devices, and it works as a USB modem for both PCs and Macs. But I found it unreliable in testing and especially prone to losing connections when downshifting from LTE to HSPA+. So while this is the T-Mobile hotspot to buy, we can't give it Editor's Choice.

The painfully awkwardly named T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 Mobile Hotspot LTE is made by ZTE, and it's a chubby little device at 3.87 by 2.25 by .7" (HWD) and 4.2 oz. Most of that space is taken up by a large 3000mAh battery, which gave the hotspot solid battery life: 6 hours, 11 minutes of streaming audio from an LTE network onto an Android smartphone.

The hotspot has a prominent, raised power button on the front along with a washed-out 1.77", 160-by-128 LCD display. There are four control buttons under the display, which isn't a touch screen. You can use the display to check your network name and password, see how much data you've transferred in this session, and see which devices are connected to the hotspot.

On the side of the hotspot, there's a USB port for charging, along with a microSD card slot. If you pop in a microSD card, the hotspot shares it out over DLNA, which is a lost opportunity as no human knows how to use DLNA.

Conclusions
T-Mobile has growing national LTE coverage. That might make it a good carrier to check out for your hotspot needs, except that I'm concerned over the stability of this hotspot's software. Since hotspot users are typically data hogs, and accurate data counter is also a must, and T-Mobile needs to get with the program and offer international-capable devices."
