- This thing really looks nice! The pictures make it look like a bright silver but it's more of a dark silver. If you know much about colors then you probably know that there are blue-based and black-based silvers. This is most certainly a black-based silver.
- It works! The phone sits snugly in there so you don't have to worry about it falling out or anything (even if you hold it upside down!)
- It only cost $12 shipped on eBay.
- This has a very small footprint so you won't have to use up much space on your desk for this.
- These photos are with the extended battery and cover on the phone, so it's compatible with the stock or extended battery.
- I expect this will work with the GSM version as well. The bag mine came in was clearly labelled I9250 so I could be wrong on this point, but the auction lists both the i515 and the i9250.
- There is absolutely no way you can get a case in this thing.
- No way to charge a spare battery with this cradle. That's always been a nice feature of some desktop cradles but not this one.
- Took ~3 weeks to ship from China.
- No spare cables or AC adapters or anything came with it. It was very bare bones.
- Does not work with an MHL adapter. Apparently this is missing some of the required additional pins to support it.
p.s. Sorry about the crazy jpg compression. Was trying to get the files to be incredibly small. If you want a better photo, please DM me with an email address and I'll send you the originals.
p.s. #2: The white skin on my phone is from here.
I got one for my desk at work. If I like it, I'll get another 2 for home: 1 for my nightstand so I don't have to fumble around with cables and 1 for my AV Rack with my MHL cable coming out of the back! Then I'll have my "HDMI" dock for less than $20 between this and the $6 MHL cable from Monoprice!
Unfortunately, it ships from China so I may be waiting for a while...
