If the emails I get are anything to go by, staying connected overseas is the biggest tech hassle most travelers face.
Navigating the minefield of roaming plans, international SIM cards, local SIMs, rental hotspots, unlocked hotspots, and god knows what else, is enough to suck the joy out of any trip before it even starts. Get it wrong, though, and you’ll be up for a very large bill, or no connectivity when you need it most.
A company called GlocalMe contacted me recently, touting the latest version of its unusual mobile hotspot. Offering both “cloud data” (essentially, an inbuilt international SIM card), and slots for using local SIM cards, it seemed a good way of staying connected without spending a fortune — at least if it worked as advertised.
I agreed to take a look.
Features and Specifications
At 5 x 0.8 x 2.6″ (12.7 x 2.0 x 6.6 cm), the GlocalMe G3 device resembles a smartphone in appearance, and is about the same length and width as an old iPhone. It’s double the height, though, and has a bit of heft to it, tipping the scales at 8.5 oz (240 grams). It fits into my jeans pockets easily enough, but I definitely know it’s there.
There’s a USB-A port on the bottom for charging other devices, and a micro-USB port on the right side for charging itself. The left side has a power button, plus a pair of unnecessary buttons for adjusting the backlight and keypress volume.
As well as the inbuilt virtual SIM that works in 100+ countries, the GlocalMe G3 also has a slot for inserting up to two local SIM cards, and you can switch between them all at will. The internal 5350mAh battery gives up to 15 hours of use, and in a useful touch, can also be used to charge up your phone or other USB-powered gadgets as needed. Using a decent wall charger, the device itself takes around 4-5 hours to fully charge.
The device supports many (although not all) LTE frequencies, at speeds of up to 150Mbps, and will fall back to 3G or 2G as needed. Up to five devices can connect to its Wi-fi hotspot simultaneously.
The G3 runs a customised version of the Android operating system, that you interact with via the touchscreen. It’s not the greatest screen I’ve ever used – low-resolution, with washed-out colours – but it suits its purpose just fine. After the initial setup, you’ll rarely need to do much with it anyway.
There’s also an accompanying iOS and Android app that lets you monitor usage, browse and buy data packs, and access help and customer support.
