The TP-LINK M7000 and M7350 are both portable 4G LTE WiFi routers that allow users to connect to the internet on the go. They are also known as MiFi as well as pocket WiFi.
When you are travelling abroad, you can use Pocket WiFi to connect multiple devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. You don’t need to turn on the mobile hotspot on your smartphone, so you save battery life. A power bank probably won’t be necessary.
Before deciding on which one to buy, let’s look at the other main differences between TP-LINK M7000 vs M7350.

According to the table above, TP-LINK M7000 and M7350 differ primarily in their sizes, displays, microSD card slots, and supported network types.
TP-LINK M7000 is notably smaller but slightly thicker than the M735. The smaller size makes it easier to fit in a pocket and takes up less space in a bag. Buying the M7000 is an excellent choice if you move around a lot or travel frequently.
Winner: TP-LINK M7000
In comparison with the M7000’s simple LED indicator, the M7350 has a coloured LCD display. It is used to display information such as network speed, data consumption, WiFi status, user numbers, network type, signal strength, battery meter and message notifications.
The TP-link M7350 is definitely better because it can display useful and helpful information for the users. However, it could be hotter when it is running and consume slightly more battery than the M7000.

Micro SD card slot
There is a microSD card slot on the TP-Link M7350, but not on the M7000. It is said that users can easily share photos, music, and videos across the WiFi network through the micro SD Storage Slot. However, I doubt its effectiveness because all smart devices can easily be connected through Bluetooth and WiFi nowadays.
In my opinion, this feature is not useful and should be removed.
Supported Network Types
Surprisingly, the M7000 supports more networks than the M7350. The additionally supported networks are TDD-LTE B38/B40/B41 (2600/2300/2500 MHz) as well as FDD-LTE B5 (850Mhz).
The TDD-LTE band is especially useful when you are travelling to countries that use LTE B40 and B41 such as Japan and the United States.
The M7000 will work perfectly fine regardless of which country you’re travelling to, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Not only that, M7000 supports Band 5 850Mhz which is required by Unifi Mobile. So, only M7000 will work with Unifi Mobile but not the M7350.
Winner: TP-LINK M7000
Overall, the TP-link M7000 is slightly better than the M7350 because it is smaller and lighter. And it supports more network types than the M7350. It is also RM50 cheaper than the M7350. Therefore, our best 4G routers list includes it as the top recommended portable WiFi router as well.
