The base is really well weighted & has a nice matt soft feel to it. It feels very solid & stable too, which is a big problem with iphone stands!
However & here is the real issue. For some reason, companies decide to still make the lightning connector sit on top of an old style size ipod connector. You will see from the video there are 2 problems with this.
1. If you have any form of case, then the dock doesn't work & the phone does not sit correctly
2. Even without the case, the iphone still isn't sitting as well as it could, because it it resting on top of an old ipod 30 pin style connector!
What a pity - my search for the perfect iphone 5 dock continues!
