No regrets - excellent in all ways
on 10 June 2013
Looks good - is robustly built and not cheap looking (piano black shine) - for me, the manufacturers logo is fine. Opened the box, plugged the supplied cable into the base unit and the other end into a USB Plug of my own (they supply a USB cable, NOT a USB power unit that plugs into the wall - see later comments about charging speed) - I put the Xperia Z in - it fitted well, not loose, sat at a nice angle - and hey presto, it started charging straight away. Yes - it starts an initial-use APP that offers to automatically start another App of your choice when it plugs in. I opted to allow it to start up the digital clock - so - when it is in the docking station, the screen becomes a digital clock. Regarding other comments about charging speed, it doesn't supply a plug, so the charging speed depends on what USB plug you use. I used the Xperia supplied which charges at 1500 milliamps and within around 30 minutes it went from 64% to 100% charged. Perfectly happy with this - no regrets that I didn't buy the Sony version - this is just as good, perhaps better (certainly cheaper). The supplied cable is a mini-usb connection that fits into the base unit, and is a normal USB cable for this phone, which is an added bonus too.
