iMagnet dock - after having it for a few weeks
My opinion of the iMagnet dock has slipped a bit after having used it for a while now.
I got it at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and the price was right.
The mounting sticky suction cup works great and it is not too large so it is not obtrusive.
However ... the magnet is just not strong enough. Once you put a case on, the strength (or lack thereof) becomes more apparent.
I put an el cheapo s-view case on and since it covers the back instead of replacing the battery cover, the extra thickness insulates it from the magnet a bit too much.
Yes, it holds the phone. However, the choice of a round-shaped magnet may have been the big mistake.
Since the magnetic field is round, it allows the phone to pivot around the central axis and after a bit of driving, the phone tilts to one side or the other.
A rectangular magnet or at least a much stronger one would probably correct this.
When my Spigen Slim Armor case arrives I will try it out and see if the s-view case if just too thick or what.
Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.
