Ive been using the OEM Samsung dock for the last couple of months, but add any of us with v that dock know its a hassle to mount, especially if you have a case. Take off the case.. Jam it in the mount, remove, put it back in the case, etc.. So I was anxious to try the ibolt. I received it today. First impression was it seems tbe well built, not as chunky as the Samsung but has a strong suction cup. The cradle design allows the phone to be mounted with the case still on. This is great for us Gnex owners. I have the seidio surface case, and the dock barely fits with it fully opened. I have to slide it in sideways but it goes on and seems secure. Time will tell I suppose.
