Sounds great works ok

Stubbie, Amazon
29 September 2013
  • Summary: Got this so we can use the cell phone as a noise machine. It sounds great. It is difficult to make the fidelio software work right. The phone usually looses it's Bluetooth connection at night. The sound change usually wakes the wife up. This defeats the purpose for which we bought the clock. Hopefully Philips gets its software fixed. If not this might turn into the guest clock.

Nice hardware, but funcitonality crippled by Philips app

phototr0pe, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: If I were just rating the hardware here, I would give the product 5 stars. It's sleek and nicely sized for a bedside device. The speakers sound ok. The clock display is sleek, minimal, and sexy. The brushed metal buttons have a nice click when you tap them. The nightlight, however, is pretty wimpy.

Could be better!

Barri, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Pros: The shape and size Gets great sound Easy to connect to my phone via bluetooth Has a nightlight that can be turned on, dimmed or turned off Cons: Awkward to connect the phone to (EVO shift with a side port), connection isn't tight and even with the little adapter the phone has to be balanced just so in order to keep the connection and not have the phone fall off The app you download to use this really needs some work.

Had to replace after a week!

Nicole Uecker, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: After only one week of use, it stopped charging any android phone...when called the Phillips care number they were easy to please, but because it was a Xmas present and I'd had it for over a month they wouldnt give me a brand new one...only refurbished. Which turns out to work fine after shipping it quite fast. But it has a few scratches due to being refurbished. In my eyes, I paid over $70 for a used dock, that angers me.

Disappointing sound given the cost; features are a mixed bag

D. Deep, Amazon
11 June 2012
  • Summary: I understand the challenges faced by Philips as they attempted to create a universal docking device that works with the wide range of available Android devices out there. I'm glad they offer a range of Droid-friendly products. That said, I don't think this device offers enough functionality to justify its price. I found the charger dock was barely acceptable.

App required to set time....

Antony, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: The speaker is good quality for its size, I like the glow under it which can be switched off or dimmed, I like the fact it can be used with many Android devices thanks to its flexibility. But like all Philips gear that involves Android some absolutely shocking Android app is required to set the time: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.philips.dockstudio I mean just look at it.... It is tragic and barely works.

Good quality but lacking features

WarrenV, Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a good quality device that has excellent sound quality. The biggest issue with it is that it has terrible connections options. There is no external audio jack so that you can hook up your phone (or other audio player) via the headphones output. Even the USB connector on the top of the device doesn't connect it to your phone for audio playback.

Okay in a limited market

Solo Rider, Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: When the Chumby One I used as an alarm clock died I started looking for a replacement (the Chumby company also having bitten the dust). After some searching I realised that mobile phones have taken the place of advanced alarm clocks and so I started looking for a charge dock for my Android Motorola Pro+ phone. It became apparent that unlike with the iPhone, the lack of standardisation of Android phones meant that there were very few suitable candidates.

Let down by terrible software

Gareth Steel "species", Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: The hardware itself is really nice. It has a solid quality feel and the sound through the speakers isnt too shabby (for the price). I personally would have liked a more stable holder for the phone, it tends to wobble with my Samsung Note (which is a large phone), but its a minor point.

Philips Fidelio AS 111

Richard Maule-ffinch, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: I was really please to find a docking station for an android smartphone after waiting over a year for one to come to market.As I only wanted a bedside item and not an all singing, all dancing music system, this bottom of the range model seemed ideal. I have had it now for 10 days or so and it device works very well - charges the phone, plays my music through it's 360 degree speakers without any problems,and displays the time. Excellent.
