Summary: Physical characteristics of the product are fine: good sound, attractive appearance. I cannot, however, insert my LG-P870 phone with the skin on. I wish that could be fixed, but it' not a showstopper. They didn't lie: I can wake to music -- one song only off my sdcard, and I get the same song every day. Isn't that a great idea! I cannot find a way to use the Android music app to play the rest of the music on my phone.
Summary: There doesn't seem to be any good docks for android. I bought this to replace an iHome I had for the iphone that I used as an alarm clock. Pro - It looks nice and slick Negatives - After almost a year of use, by now optimistically it charges my phone 50% of the time. By this I mean that I'll dock the phone, it says it's charging, but it will stop in the middle of the night and I often wake up to a dead phone.
Summary: Build quality and sound output is good but the downsides are too much: 1. without the Fidelio apps, the phone does not act in dock mode so it only charge your phone. 2. it can only work as your multimedia speaker and not hands free dock or speaker for your phone and since the phone does not recognise it as a dock without Philips rubbish software, you have to rotate your video when played on a phone that has top or bottom usb connector. 3.
Summary: The reason for the poor rating is pretty simple; the device fails at docking my Galaxy Nexus phone. After placing the phone on the dock you'll quickly realize that in order to get a charging connection you have to fiddle with it for half a minute to observe the charging indicator appear.
Summary: Wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this device if they want to use it as a music alarm. The Philips Fidelio App simply doesn't work when you want to wake up to a music file stored on your phone. The sound of the device for simply listening to your music is quite good considering the 4W output and the charger works well but until Philips do and update with the bug fixes I would wait till something better becomes available.
Summary: Bought this for my husband's birthday, hoping he can use it with his new Samsung phone. Unfortunately, when plunged in it did not charge, so lost all of its initial purpose. Also would not synch to play the music. Unfortunately had to return...
