Good but certainly not worth the price tag (Z2 version)
on 17 May 2014
Well made but light as a feather and all you get is the dock. For this price, I would expect something a bit more substantial or maybe something extra thrown into the box.
No mains charger, no lead, pretty much nothing at all other than the dock. There is a wider slot-in adapter - I assume this is for the Z1.
The tiny, but powerful, magnet in the dock draws the pins upwards to the phone. When inserted, the phone recognises a dock is being used and prompts you to use Android's Daydream feature (or other similar app if you have one installed).
The magnet is very powerful for its size (probably a neodymium magnet), but because the base is relatively light weight, you have to hold down the base when you remove the phone. On a couple of occasions I have ragged the base and wire right across the table, not thinking! Obviously I'll get used to holding the base down properly before I detach the phone but maybe a more weighty base and possibly less powerful magnet would have been better.
The Z2 smartphone is currently well over £500 (17th May 2014). You would imagine official accessories for this premium phone to be something special. Although well made, this isn't special.
