Full Review

The Huawei AI Cube is a home broadband device for the home that doubles as a smart speaker with Amazon Alexa built in. So it’s a jack of all trades, but is it a master of any or are you better off buying separate products for these two features? This review aims to answer that question, as well as looking at the price, design, performance and features of the Huawei AI Cube. So read on to find out if this is the 4G router, speaker and smart home controller for you.

Design

Huawei AI Cube Lights The Huawei AI Cube’s name is somewhat misleading, as it doesn’t look like any cube we’ve ever seen. It’s more of a cylinder, with a speaker on the bottom half and a plain white plastic finish above, along with a ring of lights on the top, similar to Amazon’s Echo devices. The design is fairly plain and generally reminiscent of other smart speakers. Indeed, it has far more visually in common with a smart speaker than a typical mobile broadband device. And while the design is plain, that helps ensure it will fit seamlessly into most home décor, which is important, because this is designed to replace home broadband. Huawei AI Cube Rear ConnectionsThe AI Cube has an ethernet port and power supply on the bottom, and volume keys and a button to mute the microphone on the top – of course, when not muted the device will mostly be controlled by voice, more on which below.

Setup

Setup of the Huawei AI Cube is similar to most other home broadband devices, in that it’s virtually just plug and play once you’ve plugged it into the wall and inserted a SIM card. Helpfully, all the details you need to connect to the WiFi network the AI Cube creates are printed on a sticker on bottom of the device. That means there’s no need to get an engineer out so you don’t need to wait for it to be installed, you can get it up and running yourself within minutes of receiving it. You will of course be able and want to change the Wi-Fi password and the like once the AI Cube is broadcasting a network, but that’s simple too as all the details for the web panel are also on the sticker on the bottom of the device. Where things become a bit more involved than a typical home broadband device is in its smart speaker functionality, as you’ll need to get the Alexa app for one of your mobile devices, create or log into an Amazon account and link the Huawei AI Cube, but none of this is too tricky, it’s just a few extra steps that are required in order to get full functionality.

Performance

The Huawei AI Cube supports LTE Cat 6, meaning that it’s theoretically capable of 4G download speeds of up to 300Mbps (37.5MB/s). That’s more than you’ll get in practice with current real world speeds topping out at around 80mbps (10MB/s), but it does mean you are future-proofed and will get speeds faster than Cat 4 devices such as the Huawei E5573bs-322 4G Mobile Wi-Fi and the Huawei HomeFi. The Huawei AI Cube can also theoretically manage upload speeds of 50Mbps over 4G. Again, actual speeds are likely to be lower, but still higher than most of the competition. Having said that, the Huawei B535 WebBox does beat it here, with upload speeds of up to 100Mbps. Still, the AI Cube is fast, and that’s good news, because some home broadband can be faster than 4G, so for a 4G alternative to compete it needs to be able to make full use of 4G speeds. On a related note, the Huawei AI Cube can get up to 64 devices online at once, which should be far more than most people will need and is at least double what most mobile broadband devices allow. And it’s not limited just to 4G, as using the ethernet port you can also use the Huawei AI Cube as a Wi-Fi router, with support for 802.11ac, capable of broadcasting on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and with speeds theoretically up to 1,200Mbps over LAN.

Features

Huawei AI Cube Speaker

The main feature of the Huawei AI Cube beyond providing 4G home broadband, is its smart speaker credentials. With Alexa built-in plus four far-field microphones, so it can hear you clearly, you can use your voice to turn smart lights on and off, adjust smart thermostats and control other smart home devices. You can also ask for weather and travel information, ask Alexa to play music and ask it to look up information. That makes it the potential heart of any smart home and a very versatile device. And it’s a speaker that you’ll likely want to listen to music through, as it includes a 400ml sound cavity and an aluminium diaphragm. This allows for high quality audio, including strong but not overwhelming bass. Huawei’s Histen tech is also used, adding virtual bass, adaptive gain control, a linear phase equalizer and more. This isn’t going to compete with a high-end speaker, but the sound is better than you might expect for a device of this size. On an unrelated note one thing to be aware of is that this doesn’t have a battery, so this isn’t ideal as a portable MiFi device. As it’s plug and play you can use it anywhere with power, but this won’t work for getting you online in the car or on a train.

Software

Huawei AI Cube Software

The router can be controlled via a web panel which you can login to using the credentials on the sticker on the bottom of the device. It offers all the features you would expect, including the option to change WiFi settings and channels along with advanced features such as VPNs, NAT, Mac filtering and more. You can also monitor data usage and users connected to the network. Another useful piece of software is the «Best Position» feature, which enables you to find the position with the best signal strength. Similar functionality is available through the Huawei HiLink and SmartHome applications, although they lack some of the advanced features of the web panel. While, the Amazon Alexa elements are controlled through the Alexa app which is easy to use and improving all the time.

Alternatives

Fibre Broadband is a one of the main alternatives, delivering potentially higher speeds and lower latency, but this requires a landline and setup by an engineer, whereas with the Huawei AI Cube you can get set up instantly, don’t need a landline and can take the device anywhere with a network signal and mains supply. There are also a couple of alternative products on Three. The HomeFi B311 has slightly lower specs with only 2.4GHz WiFi and lower maximum speeds, but has the option to add an external SMA aerial which can boost range significantly. The Huawei B535 WebBox on the other hand is arguably the best option if all you want from the device is 4G home broadband. It matches the AI Cube for download speeds, Wi-Fi bands and simultaneous connections, but has higher max upload speeds, four ethernet ports, and support for an external antenna. Of course, what it doesn’t have is a speaker or smart assistant.

Price

The Huawei AI Cube is available from Three on a choice of a 24-month, 12-month or 1-month plan. These plans all include unlimited data, with the cheapest monthly cost being £25 per month with no upfront cost on the 24-month plan. That makes it slightly more expensive than most other mobile broadband devices from Three, such as the Huawei HomeFi and Huawei B535 WebBox, but then the Huawei AI Cube can do more due to the Alexa smart speaker (though again, isn’t quite as good at the broadband part as the B535 WebBox). It’s worth noting also that the price still makes it far cheaper than many typical home broadband plans, especially as they often require a landline, which this doesn’t.

Conclusion

The Huawei AI Cube is a seriously impressive device, managing to both match most smart speakers and better most home broadband devices. It’s faster than HomeFi while packed with all the same sort of tech as an Amazon Echo. So if you want both 4G home broadband and a smart speaker then going all in one with this is a great option – you’ll save money and space. Even if you only really want one or the other it’s definitely worth considering, though the Huawei B535 WebBox is now a strong competitor. It’s slight better on the broadband side because it has more ethernet ports, supports the latest 4G LTE standards and you can connect external antennas for extending range.

Huawei AI Cube Review

Huawei AI Cube Review

The market is awash with smart speakers, led by the Amazon Echo and the Google Home. It can be difficult for a new smart speaker to stand out unless they have a fresh angle.

Huawei is no stranger to disrupting established markets. It has rapidly ascended the ladder to become one of the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturers, partly through pioneering combinations of components. It was ahead of the game on both triple-lens cameras and reverse wireless charging, for example.

Now Huawei has taken a similar approach to the smart speaker market. The Huawei AI Cube combines the core function of an Amazon Echo with that of a 4G router.

Two questions immediately emerge: does it work? And do you actually need such an unorthodox combination of features?

Design

Huawei AI Cube - Ring Lights

Let’s get the obvious observation out of the way for starters: no, the Huawei AI Cube isn’t in fact a cube at all. It’s more of an upright cylinder that tapers in from the bottom to the top.

Despite its Amazon Alexa chops, the AI Cube is much closer to the Google Home in terms of looks. Besides the tapered shape, it also shares a similar combination of grey speaker fabric on the bottom half and a white plastic top. It’s nothing to shout about, but the speaker’s unassuming looks help it to blend in to most modern homes far better than your average 4G router.

There are touch-sensitive volume and Alexa activation controls on top, along with four far-field microphones and a physical mic-off button for privacy purposes. These are surrounded by a multi-hued LED ring, which lights up when the Alexa assistant is in use or when you adjust the volume.

Huawei AI Cube - Front Close-Up

On the back of the AI Cube you’ll find a trio of lights stacked vertically. The top one shows you the strength and type (4G or ethernet) of the signal being received, the middle one shows when it’s ready to accept a Wi-Fi connection, and the bottom one is a LAN indicator to show when the speaker is physically hooked up to a computer or to a physical internet connection.

Below these lights you’ll find the power and WPS connection buttons, which should be self-explanatory.

At the very bottom of the Huawei AI Cube’s rear side you’ll discover two ports — one for the power lead, and another for the ethernet connection we referenced above. The latter is a fairly unusual inclusion for a smart speaker, if not for a 4G router.

Either way, it doesn’t completely make up for the lack of a Wi-Fi option, which would have offered feature parity with run-of-the-mill smart speakers.

Setup

Getting connected to the web through the Huawei AI Cube is very simple. Just insert the SIM into the slot on the bottom of the speaker, plug it into the mains, then connect your device to the speaker via the Wi-Fi details supplied on the underside.

Managing the hub and monitoring your data usage requires you to download the Huawei HiLink app and log-in using the same Wi-Fi password. It’s from here that you’ll also log in to your Amazon account for Alexa usage.

Figuring out how to establish a Bluetooth link isn’t immediately apparent, though. It’s strange that you can’t hook up your smartphone in this way (for direct music streaming) from the HiLink app, but rather have to ask Alexa to do so. But at least the function is there, contrary to reports you might have read elsewhere.

Features

There are three core features to the Huawei AI Cube: its Alexa assistant function, its capabilities as a speaker, and that curveball inclusion of a 4G router.

When it comes to the Alexa function, Amazon’s smart assistant works more or less as you’d expect. Once you’ve connected to Amazon through the HiLink app, you just need to say ‘Alexa’ within range of the AI Cube and the speaker will start listening.

From there you can ask for definitions, weather reports, facts, recipes, music tracks and much more depending on which Alexa skills you manually add through the Alexa app.

We found the Huawei AI Cube’s four mics to be generally decent at picking up our voice, though it would occasionally be a little slow to ‘wake up’ and recognise our prompts. It also seemed to struggle to register while the speaker was being used to play music or radio at a moderate-to-loud volume.

The 4G router component works well, as you’d expect given Huawei’s market-leading position in mobile connectivity. In fact the Huawei AI Cube seems to offer a slightly stronger 4G connection than your average smartphone can manage. In places where our Three-powered smartphone only displayed one 4G bar, the AI Cube would often show two or even three bars — though overall speeds remain dependent on general 4G network performance in the area.

Performance

Huawei AI Cube - Front Close-Up

The true power and effectiveness of the Huawei AI Cube’s 4G connectivity function will vary vastly depending on where you use it, and how good your network operator’s performance is in your particular area.

On paper, the AI Cube is capable of connecting up to 64 devices simultaneously at 300Mbps download speeds and 50Mbps upload speeds. But few if any UK users will experience anything like that.

Even with just one or two network bars showing, however, you’ll be able to get pretty decent Alexa performance from the AI Cube. In our kitchen the connection strength fell into the lower ‘orange’ range on the HiLink app’s Best Position tool, yet Alexa still proved reasonably responsive, while streaming BBC 6 Radio came with only the occasional drop out.

As a speaker, the Huawei AI Cube offers reasonably expansive performance, though the output isn’t strictly 360-degrees as claimed. The sound is clearest and fullest from the front.

Even so, the speaker outputs Alexa’s responses clearly and loudly, with sound that’s sufficiently meaty and fleshed out to do a decent job as a general background speaker in noisy environments like a kitchen.

Huawei AI Cube - Speaker

This is not a speaker for audiophiles, though. In terms of pure sound quality the AI Cube is firmly in standard Echo and Google Home territory rather than mixing it with the Apple HomePod and Sonos One. Given that it’s priced closer to the latter two premium smart speakers, that might strike some as a concern.

Don’t be in any doubt: it’s the 4G router element that you’re spending the money on here. If sound quality is a clear priority, we’d recommend that you look elsewhere.

Software

Huawei AI Cube review

As we’ve mentioned already, you’ll need Huawei’s HiLink app to set up and run the Huawei AI Cube. It’s a free download from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.

The app is split between three main sections: Device, Tools and Smart speaker. Device is the default screen you’ll face each time you boot up the app, and it shows you how much of your data plan you’ve used and which devices are connected.

Tools gives you a number of mini applications, such as the aforementioned Best Position signal-chasing feature. You’ll also find an SMS app tied to the SIM card used within the AI Cube, and a Guest Wi-Fi feature that lets you set up a strictly limited sub-network for guests.

The Smart Speaker tab doesn’t actually contain anything except for a link to the Amazon Alexa app. Indeed, the simple truth is that you need two apps to get the most from the Huawei AI Cube. Besides Huawei’s own HiLink app, you’ll ideally want to download Amazon’s Alexa app to add new skills to the assistant software.

All in all, this makes the Huawei AI Cube a bit fiddlier to set-up and run than Amazon’s own Echo speakers, and quite a bit fiddlier than a Google Home. But as we’ve already said, if all you’re after is a pure smart speaker, you’re rather missing the point of the Huawei AI Cube.

Conclusion

The Huawei AI Cube pulls off the feat of being unique in an increasingly crowded smart speaker market. While it’s a fully functioning Alexa smart speaker and a viable Bluetooth speaker, the main function here is its 4G router capability.

It’s a great addition to any home where Wi-Fi connectivity proves problematic and 4G performance is strong. It could also become a useful travel companion if your premises don’t always tend to have reliable Wi-Fi.

But that 4G home broadband function really is core to the Huawei AI Cube’s appeal. Treated as a pure smart speaker its ordinary sound output and relatively high price don’t make a great deal of sense.

This is a niche proposition alright, but one that could be very useful to the right kind of person

Huawei AI Cube B900 Review: Three’s 4G Hub With Alexa Smart Speaker

By Ken Lo January 2nd, 2020 133 comments

The Huawei AI Cube B900 (Three’s 4G Hub with Alexa) offered unlimited 4G home broadband with a built-in Amazon Alexa smart speaker.

The Huawei AI Cube B900 is no longer available on Three. The Huawei AI Cube B900 was previously offered as Three’s 4G Hub with Alexa. It has now been replaced by a newer 4G Hub along with optional add-on devices like a smart TV, smart speaker and smart display.

In the UK, Three previously offered the Huawei AI Cube B900 router with unlimited data (also known as the 4G Hub with Alexa). Customers purchasing the device also received a free Amazon Echo Dot with their purchase.

Working as a two-in-one device, the AICubeB900 has an integrated Amazon Alexa smart speaker as well as giving you unlimited 4G home broadband on up to 64 devices at one time. This is all delivered without the need for a phone line or cable, making it a good alternative to fixed home broadband.

In this article, we’ll review the Huawei AI Cube B900 router from Three, including the price plans available and the capabilities of the device. We’ll also compare it to the Huawei HomeFi Plus B535 router from Three.

Huawei AI Cube Price Plans

For many people, 4G technology now provides a viable alternative to fixed home broadband that’s delivered through a phone line or cable. As it uses mobile network technology, you can get a high-speed broadband connection without being limited by the speeds you can get through a phone line or cable. You can also get your broadband connection set up quickly without an engineer visit, and there’s the flexibility to bring your broadband connection with you to other places.

Three previously offered a choice of two 4G-powered home broadband routers: the Huawei B535 HomeFi+ and the Huawei AICubeB900.

As the more expensive of the two devices, the Huawei AI Cube B900 gives you a built-in Amazon Alexa smart speaker. This means you can use it to control your smart home devices, for listening to music or for making internet-based phone calls. This is in addition to the router capabilities, with support for Category 6 LTE download speeds (up to 300Mbit/s) and dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11ac).

If you replace your fixed-line home broadband connection with an AI Cube router, it may be possible to cancel your landline connection. This can save you in the region of £20/month, offsetting much of the cost of getting an AI Cube router. However, you’ll need to find an alternative way to make phone calls if you do this (e.g. using your mobile phone instead of a landline, or making internet-based phone calls using your AI Cube).

As an alternative to buying your AI Cube from Three, you can also buy the Huawei AI Cube from Amazon for around £69. You can then buy a SIM card separately for your AI Cube if you decide to do this (e.g. Three offers an unlimited data SIM card from £20 per month).

Three 4G Hub

As of 2021, Three no longer offers the Huawei AI Cube B900 to new home broadband customers. Instead, you can get their newer 4G Hub router on the following price plans:

Service Data Allowance Contract Length Upfront Price Monthly Price
Three 4G Hub Unlimited Data 24 month contract £0 £24/month
with 6 months half price

The new 4G Hub supports Category 12/13 LTE speeds on the Three network. This means you’re able to get download speeds of up to 600Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100Mbps.

Huawei AI Cube B900

The Huawei AI Cube B900 is Three’s 4G home broadband router with a built-in Amazon Alexa smart speaker (4G Hub with Alexa). The router supports Category 6 LTE speeds (up to 300Mbit/s download and up to 50Mbit/s upload). Most users, however, will get more realistic download speeds of around 10-20Mbit/s depending on their location. The AI Cube’s home broadband service can be used on up to 64 devices at one time with dual-band 802.11ac wi-fi connectivity. There’s also an Ethernet socket for connecting a wired device to your network.

In addition to working as a 4G router, the AI Cube also doubles up as a smart speaker solution. It has four built-in microphones with far-field voice recognition and a 360 ° speaker. This means you can use it in much the same way as you would an Amazon Echo. For instance, you can control your smart home devices, make internet-based phone calls or listen to music through online steaming services. The AI Cube’s interface allows you to control everything by voice, simply by asking Alexa to do something for you.

Compared to the Huawei B535 HomeFi Plus router, you get fairly similar router specifications. Both routers support a maximum download speed of 300Mbit/s and have dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity on up to 64 devices at one time (including 802.11ac wi-fi). You do, however, lose some connectivity options. For instance, there’s no external antenna support. The AI Cube also has just a single Ethernet socket for connecting wired devices to your network, whereas the Huawei B535 has 4 Gigabit Ethernet sockets. The AI Cube also offers slower uploads (up to 50Mbit/s rather than 100Mbit/s).

Being a 2-in-1 device with an integrated Amazon Alexa speaker, there are some trade-offs to be made in the AI Cube’s design. Most importantly, the optimal location to place a smart speaker in your home is normally fairly centrally in your living room. This may differ from the optimal location for a 4G router which is often closer to a window sill (to maximise the signal strength of your 4G connection).

For customers living in an urban area with fairly good mobile coverage, the trade-offs getting an AI Cube might be fairly small (as you possibly didn’t want to use an external antenna anyway and coverage might be better in the middle of your living room). However, for customers living in a suburban or rural area, a more mainstream router like the Huawei B535 will be a much safer bet.

The following table shows a side-by-side comparison of the Huawei B535 HomeFi Plus and the Huawei AI Cube B900 routers:

As an alternative to the AI Cube, you can combine the Huawei B535 router with something like a standalone Amazon Echo speaker. This is available for about £90. The advantage of having a standalone Amazon Echo speaker is that it can be placed anywhere in your home: it isn’t necessary to balance this against where you’ll get the best 4G network coverage.

Alternatives

The closest alternative to getting a Huawei AI Cube B900 router is getting Three’s newer 4G Hub router.

The following table shows a list of price plans available with the 4G Hub:

Service Data Allowance Contract Length Upfront Price Monthly Price
Three 4G Hub Unlimited Data 24 month contract £0 £24/month
with 6 months half price

If you’re also looking at 4G-powered home broadband solutions from other mobile networks, you can consider Vodafone’s GigaCube and EE’s 4GEE Home Router.

Huawei B900 AI Cube Router Review

At IFA 2018, Huawei presented a new device named “Huawei AI Cube(B900-230)”. The Huawei AI Cube is a smart speaker equipped with Amazon Alexa, an audio assistant developed by Amazon in the US. In addition to its function as a smart speaker, it also has a function as a stationary LTE wireless router. Huawei B900 AI Cube combines a 4G Modem, a home WiFi router, high-end 360-degree wireless speaker, and a Huawei-Amazon collaboration that promises Alexa integration and some not-yet-articulated AI capabilities.

Huawei B900 AI Cube Appearance

The Huawei B900 AI Cube looks a little bit similar to its predecessor Huawei B528 but there is the obvious difference. On the top, there are three keys available: one volume up key, one volume down key, and one mute key. On the body, there are three LED indicators for Signal, WiFi and LAN. However, unlike the latest Huawei B618s-22d WiFi router, there is no connector for the external antenna in the B900 AI Cube.

Below the indicators, there are two buttons: Power and WPS buttons. On the bottom of the Huawei B900 WiFi router, the product name Huawei B900-230, IP address (192.168.1.1), User name(admin), SSID, WiFi key, WPS pin, Power input and Made in China information are listed on the bottom label.

The SIM card slot is also at the bottom with the Reset hole. The Huawei B900 WiFi cube uses Micro SIM card size. Below the IMEI & S/N number label, there is an Ethernet port for LAN and WAN. The power plug port is at the side of the Ethernet port.

Huawei AI Cube B900 Smart Speaker Function

The Huawei B900 AI Cube Router can be controlled via voice assistant Alexa with around 50,000 voice commands. For example, the router can play music or Internet radio through the built-in speaker. Smart home hardware such as TVs, Wi-Fi bulbs or refrigerators can also be controlled, as long as they are compatible with Amazon Alexa.

As a stationary LTE WiFi router, the Huawei B900-230 cube could achieve download speed up to 300Mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. It has 802.11ac with dual-band Wi-Fi, in total up to 1.200 MBit/s are attainable over WLAN according to Huawei.. You get four microphones with far-field voice recognition.
