5.0 out of 5 stars Great little phone, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice sized mobile for those that like functionality without having to carry a larger phone around with them. The trend now is for phones to get larger and larger, they are becoming small tablets, and often just too big to slip into a pocket

This phone fits neatly in a pocket. If you have bad eyes, probably not the best choice, but perfectly fine if you have average eyes.
Great quality and build as usual from Samsung

1.0 out of 5 stars Remote Velcro strap NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have normal size wrists/arms, do not buy. This strap is not long enough, its as simple as that. I am a normal size bloke with normal wrists. Whilst the strap does go around my wrist, it only just reaches the Velcro, and is tight. It needs to be 50mm longer to be comfortable and be able to fit anyone.

When I ordered this I didn't realise it was coming from China, the delivery was a bit slow, possibly my fault for not checking. I assume it has been made for the Eastern market place. Maybe everyone has smaller wrists. This should be advertised as a Ladies wrist band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent watch for the money. Feels real good quality. Perfect. The strap came a little large for me even though I have normal wrists, but I took to the nearest "watch" shop and they removed two links in about 20 seconds.
Really pleased with this watch. looks far more expensive that the price would indicate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect size inaccurate size, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very fast delivery and despatch, but unfortunately the screen protectors are not accurate in size and do not fit. I have fitted many types of these screens for various devices from ipads, iPhone, kindles,mobiles etc, and have never had a problem other than the normal issues with fitting.

On the mini ipad like other devices you are governed by a home button or/and a camera pinhole to obtain alignment. On these protectors, with the camera and circular button aligned, the protector overhung the sides of the ipad by about 3mm and had to be trimmed with a sharp hobby knife.

These were the worst fitting of any I have ever applied. The hole centres for the button/camera were accurate, but the overall dimensions were pretty poor. You should not have to trim them down to fit. If anything they should be slightly under-size because you do not need to protect the screen at the perimeter because that's an area you don't use.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for phone, but not with cover on, 24 Jun 2012
Well made product, superb to be able to charge a spare battery at the same time, but why oh why do they make these docks so that you have to remove your cover/case or protection sleeve first.A real annoyance. If the cradle was just a bit more proportioned and "sloppy" it would be superb, but having to remove protection prior to charging is simply rediculous.

I suspect not many people have a smartphone without some case. So in conclusion, it fits very well, but only having first removed any case. Dissapointing.Annoying.

The first manufacturer to come up with a dock that can work with a protective case attached will cleanup.

So, if you dont have any case, good purchase. If you do have a case, really annoying to remove it prior to charging.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the tin, 24 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is superb, it really does stick well, is nicely made, and the design in general is top notch. Like other reviewers, I too purchased an "inferior" version first. Money wasted.

I bought this on the strength of previous reviews, and am not dissapointed. Sticks well, is adjustable for viewing angle, holds my mobile very well, and the real nice touch are the two small shelves that fold out at the bottom. These prevent any chance of the device slipping down like other inferior versions.

So, nicely made, super sticky, works well, definately the one to purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for Playsport Zx5, 24 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is nicely made, and the actual design is good. However,it is not suitable for the Kodak Playsport Zx5 as it is advertised. Yes it goes in, but only with a real push, and a firm pull to remove. Its just too small. And if you attach the safety lanyard that is included with the camcorder, its even more difficult.

So in conclusion, well made, nice actual design, but the dimensions are not suitable to take a Zx5 and advertising as suitable for the Zx5 is a bit misleading.

One size does not fit all in this case.

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Very good indead, lots to do on it. Quite hard to master with balance board, but all in all a very good addictive game.

Probably the nearest you can get to skiing without getting on the real stuff.Stance and pressure distribution on the balance board required to turn very similar to real skiing.

No regrets purchasing this product.

Just wish you could turn off annoying commentary on the downhill races.

4.0 out of 5 stars Emprex what's it really like, 9 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All in all its a good product. Easy to set up, no probs here. I do find that if the signal has to pass through several walls (as per a normal house)there is quite a lot of picture quality loss.Having said all of that, the picture is OK, just nowhere near as good as watching on the source TV. I bought this so that I could watch Sky on other Tv's in the house. In this respect it works very good. You can control your digibox, sky box, or any device that you wish from any other TV in your home, just as if you were sitting in front of your source TV.

You do need an extra remote for these additional rooms though (sky remote etc). Unless you take your original around with you!!!!

Great for watching recorded programs in other rooms as well.

All in all, pretty good and don't regret buying.
