Saw this on Birchbox and thought it would be cool to try out. I was disappointed on a few counts:
1) As a few reviews have mentioned, this is cut to precisely fit an iPhone meaning, if you use a case (like I and 75% of smartphone owners do), the phone will fit, but will look nowhere near as pretty as it does on the box.
2) The hole that you're supposed to fit your cable through is narrow and goes at a right angle, meaning it's tricky to get the cable to appear out the other end. Once you do get it in there, there's nothing to hold it in, meaning that when you want to take your phone out or put it in, you'll need to grip the base, hold the charge cable, and disconnect your phone. Also be careful, because the cable might slip out the back. The product name is a little misleading, since when most people think of phone docks, they think of something with the cable attached or built-in.
3) Areaware makes a horizontal clock app that you're supposed use with the dock. I didn't download it because it only has 2.5 stars. All the reviews I read for it said that it either has no alarm function, or the alarm doesn't make a sound. Seriously? The product is called "Alarm Dock."
I'm returning this product and waiting for something better to come along. In the meantime I'll just keep leaving my phone on my nightstand when I go to bed.
