Default Short Air Dock review

Did a short Air Dock review - I got it for my GS5, but since Samsung is taking their sweet time releasing the wireless charging cover I had to test with the N7. Anyways, here it is for anyone interested:

Can you comment on how well it holds a phone while driving around? I would hate to take a turn and have it fly off out the window.

The magnets combined with the sticky surface of the charger makes it nearly impossible to fall off by accident. I think there is a better chance the entire mount will fall before the phone comes off due to a bump.

Can you make a video testing the GS5 even without the wireless back cover? Thanks.

The dock comes with a single magnetic sticker, so I will need to wait until the wireless cover is released so I can place it on that. I used the N7 because it already has magnets integrated.

Shouldn't it work without the magnets too ?
Isn't there a sticky front on the charger ?

Yes, sorry - I thought you wanted to see it with magnets in use.

Here's a quick video - the quality isnt so great as the car was moving, but I wanted to show how sturdy it is over bumps. This is using the sticky pad without magnets.
