◆ Photo review
I got Wi-Fi STATION L-01G at NTT docomo immediately.

From the left, Wi-Fi STATION L-01G main body, back cover, warranty card, SSID / security key sticker, simple setup guide, notes on use, battery, charger conversion cable, USB connection cable.

The body of the Wi-Fi STATION L-01G and the back cover are contained in the box in a divided state.

Looking at the interior of the main unit, it was found that the manufacturer was LG, and other serial numbers, SSID, security keys, etc. were written.

There is a mini UIM card slot in the lower left part of the back of the main unit.

So please insert docomo mini UIM card here.

Sliding the card in the direction of the arrow ...

You can install it like this.

The rest is the included 4880 mAh battery ......


You can use it as a mobile Wi - Fi router by attaching a cover.

So I will check the appearance of the main body from here. Wi-Fi STATION L-01G weighs about 186 g with the battery installed and the size of the display is about 3.0 inches.

NTT docomo and Xi (Crossy) logo are at the bottom of the display.

On the back is a plastic material that glitter with crane ... ...

If you do it many times by hand, the back side becomes tough with lots of fingerprints.

Wi-Fi STATION L-01G on the top is the only power button that is the physical button.

Micro - USB port on the bottom

There is nothing on the left and right sides.

Material with a matte texture different from the back part is used for the side part, and it fits well in hand well.

I compared the size with the iPhone 6. When arranging two, the width is about the same size as the iPhone 6 and it is short vertically.

When piling up like this. Wi - Fi STATION L - 01G is slightly smaller in horizontal width than just a little.
