I've sent two of these back - each has broken in the same way - the USB connection on the dock itself is just inadequate and breaks with even the most careful and gentle use - eg when unplugging and reconnecting in everyday use.
Note this isn't abuse - after it happened on my first unit, I treated the 2nd unit with great care and still it broke within a couple of uses.
It's a shame really, as I've struggled to find another dock for a Samsung Galaxy S3 that provides any sort of charge and audio out connectivity combined with single connection simplicity (like you can find everywhere for an iPhone).
This is hampered by the ridiculous lack of digital audio out via USB from Android (which isn't iBolt's fault) but I'd have liked to have found a solution which offered a drop or push in cradle, rather than the fiddlyness of having to insert a USB plug on the end of a short wire.
Since my 2nd unit broke I've been using the supplied connection cable directly in to the phone (bypassing the connection in and out of the dock itself). It means the layout isn't as neat in use but it works OK.
However the analogue audio output suffers from noise whilst the phone is charging and I often find myself unplugging the USB connection from the car stereo end, leaving just the audio cable connected, so I can enjoy music without that noise.
If you've been looking around for a cradle and cable solution that'll take audio from and power to your S3 via one lead, this could be your only choice (I've not seen an alternative) - it's just a pity that it's flawed in a way that could be so easily fixed with a solid connection from the supplied lead in to the dock and with a higher quality drop in and lock cradle design.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit but silly design flaw 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a cracking little dock, great value at £20, perfect fitting for the S4 and S5 (and probably the S3), with or without a phone case because of the removable insert and sticky pads provided. If you're only using it for hands free calls, then it's probably perfect.


it also has a massive and idiotic design flaw. With the phone in the cradle, the power button is embedded in a recess at the bottom within the plastic housing. You can't turn the screen off, although the big button will turn it on again at least. If the power cable was at the other end this wouldn't be a problem. (The xProDock has this covered.)

You may just wish to have the screen on constantly (which will drain your battery rapidly), or set it to turn off after a period of inactivity (which will get very annoying if you have a screen lock to enter while you're driving), and so it's not a deal breaker for everyone. But do be aware of this issue when deciding on a car dock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet to be convinced - Updated 24 Sept. 2013
By Hubby
Verified Purchase
I'm afraid that I had to return this item. On unpacking I was impressed with the look and feel, unfortunately there was an immediate problem during installation. On connecting the combined power/phono lead to the docking unit, the housing which accepts the lead broke away. This was no heavy handed installation, it proceeded problem free until the time came to connect the lead. I am hoping that this is a manufacturing fault rather than a fundamental design fault as I intend to order a replacement unit. With luck I hope to update my review with a successful installation of the replacement, and subsequent good experience of using the item.

Update after 2 weeks - OK so now I've replaced the original and successfully installed, without a repeat of the problem which caused me to give this item a 2 star rating. I'm now upgrading to a 3 star rating because although the product is working as described without fault I find the phone connection still a little fiddly. I may master this eventually. The measure of this type of product is how well it copes with daily use over the long term. So I may well give yet another update in a few months.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent build quality, apart from connections 28 Nov. 2013
By Nic
Verified Purchase
The plastic holder, suction pad and design is brilliant, but the cable connections are very poor. I am returning this item without even being able to use it. Set it all up, plugged it in, and was recognised by the phone. No output audio....why, because the connection on the back had pulled out of the unit. I had not even touched this as it was already connected. The connection into the phone is poor as well. Much too tight and a real faff to get it in.

Such a shame, as I was really looking forward to using this, after loving the official Samsung GS2 car dock. Such a shame Samsung don't make an official GS4 dock.

Cannot reccommend this product at all.

This is not what i ordered, so sent it back and money refunded promptly. Thank you. May work for some people but not my phone and what i expected. I bought the i-bolt prodock. Which suited my phone and case better but also came with its own set of faults.
