With the best will in the world, the M5360 is not much of a looker. It’s blocky, angular construction looks like an Apple side project from the 1980s, but it is well built with a durable gloss exterior that is both scratch and fingerprint resistant.
At 100 x 44.4 x 28.5mm and 200g the M5360 is also fairly portable. It will create a bigger bulge in your pocket than a 3G dongle (no sniggering), but it is only about 30-50g heavier than a standard MiFi despite packing in plenty more features.
The 1in, three line OLED display could be larger, but rivals are similar and text is clear and bright so unless you wear glasses for reading it shouldn’t be a problem. This clarity is vital though since there is a lot of information squeezed in. WiFi status, connected users numbers, real time connection speeds and uploaded and downloaded data plus battery life are all shown at the same time.
