Clear Spot 4G ApolloFor those who live or travel within Clear's 4G coverage, the Clear Spot 4G - Apollo is an excellent mobile-broadband option and wins our Editors' Choice Award.
If you're on the market to find a mobile internet solution that's not just fast but also affordable, you are watching the right video. Hello, my name is Do Ngo and this is the Clear Spot 4G Apollo mobile router from Clear. This is an [unk] product. Now, this is a 4G mobile router. The Apollo can support up to eight Wi-Fi clients at a time. On top here, the router has a very large LCD. The screen really comes in handy as it quickly gives you the overall idea about the condition of the device and the network. On one side here, the Apollo has a power button that you need to press and hold for a few second to turn it on or off. You can also use the button to quickly turn on the LCD screen. On the other side, that's a mute button. This is because by default, the router makes a short ringtone when a Wi-Fi client connects to or disconnect from it. Finally, on this side you can find a standard micro USB slot use for charging. On the bottom, the Apollo has two ports for external antenna and you can also find a cover for its batteries. You know, testing this battery offer some 7 hours on a full charge which is very good. Now, the Apollo is a 4G-only device. Meaning, it won't work with a 3G network. To make up for this, it costs just $99 without any contract and it comes with unlimited data plans that start at just $45 a month. It's also very fast in our testing. For this reason if you leave or travel within Clear's 4G coverage, this make an excellent device to carry along. Once again, my name is Do Ngo and this has been the first look at the Clear Spot 4G Apollo mobile router.
