The Zing is Netgear's first step into cellular mobile hot spots, and it does its job well. In fact the only thing that holds it back is Sprint's 4G LTE service, which is still sparse. But if you live or travel within Sprint's coverage, the Zing will definitely offer you the best Sprint has to offer, and will make a great mobile companion that keeps you connected with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices when you're out and about.

The good: The Netgear Zing is very convenient to use thanks to its large touch screen, robust Web interface, and capable mobile app. The device offers impressive 4G performance despite the currently lacking Sprint 4G LTE network.
The bad: The mobile router is a little large, and Sprint's 4G LTE is currently limited in many cities.
The bottom line: The Zing is a robust and capable mobile cellular router, but make sure you're happy with Sprint's 4G LTE coverage first before getting it.
