I was wondering how this would work as a Global LTE modem using a FiSIM.

For that, I suspect it works the same way at $149 as it did at $112

I purchased one and was able to make it work with a FiSIM. The menu is kind of hidden, but you can enable roaming on a "Local SIM" and can manually program in the manual access points. The hotspot is larger than most hotspots, but even supports CDAM and EVDO, though I am not sure how you could manually activate it on those networks.

I had been looking at the G3 and just this morning, it was a daily deal on Amazon for $100, after an additional $10 coupon.

Amazon tends to cycle the same products as daily deals, so it may be worth periodically checking to see if it's back on sale.

I bought one last year after a brush with unusable hotel WiFi, figuring to use it as a backup. I ended up not needing it too much -- I have about 400MB left that will expire at the end of the month, so I will burn it off on my trip next week. I have used it as a power bank many times, though. The rates are similar to the Ubigi eSIM so if that works for me the GlocalMe my be relegated to the Hall of No Longer Used Gadgets.

It basically looks like a stock Android phone mated to a big ... battery. It is heavier than many more recent 5000mAh power banks, though.
