Rated 3 out of 5 by Kitkat update broke dock and NOT compatible with M8! Had my dock for almost a year with my HTC ONE M7 and loved it. It made using my car radio with my phone a breeze. Always switch to car mode when docked until I got the KitKat update. Then it stopped working on both my docks. I now have the HTC One M8 and the despite what this site says the car dock doesn't work with the it. It physically will not fit the dock. April 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fantastic, when it works I use voice commands and other safety features extensively in the car, so I love having my phone mounted. The ease-of-use of using this mount is almost unbeatable. I can't stand those cheap $5 'universal' mounts that you have to squeeze into place and never seem to work. My ONLY gripe with this mount is the proprietary MicroUSB connector. I would've much, much rather they use the same design they did with the HTC Sensation mount, which was a standard MicroUSB connection into the base of the mount, where power was then routed up to the charging port. Instead we get this dinky little clip which never seems to hold on QUITE strong enough. On top of that, the extra pin added to the cable to invoke "Car Mode" in Android is starting to get worn on my cable, so Car mode only activates about half the time. I can do it by hand within the OS, but that's not the point. The point is the proprietary clip makes it impossible to replace. I can't find replacement cables for this mount anywhere online, and when I called HTC they said they didn't stock/sell the cables themselves. The only USB cables they had were those for the phone itself. Really disappointed in what would otherwise be a fantastic piece of equipment. January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best I've had! I've had a lot of different types of phones in my life from a boost mobile phone to a Galaxy S-type phone. This phone is by far the best I've ever bought. Everyone wants to find something to complain about, but this doesn't give me one thing. Camera is great and easy to use. The home screen confuses for a half a second but then its all good. Apps are easy to change settings on and what not. The only thing I would advise is if you have small hands dont get this phone. Its massive. I have a thumb tip to pinky tip measurement of 11 inches and it JUST fits my hand. Enjoy this phone because its fun and easy! January 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Perfect but for one major flaw Excellent quality as usual, but it has a major design flaw, which only allows me to give it one star. Won't take an HTC One in a protective case, so virtually useless because of this. Pitcy, because in all other aspects it is great. September 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great kit The cradle works great and when I slot the phone in, it seems to know to switch the bluetooth on. Once in, it works and looks great. Very durable. Only problem is that once I have put the dash mount plate on, I can't take it off and have no idea where I can get a spare mount plate. August 12, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by No heat protection..... My HTC One was in the Cradle, it fits very well and nice material. Very good in principle......... So now i had a crack in my lense. The sun was shining on the phone, the climatic was running, but my black HTC became to hot at the lense i thing and cracked. This problem can be solves easily, if the cradle will protect not only the half of the phone. Better complete phone is sun protected inkl. the video-lense. So it would be easy possible to switch the phone front cradle to a better one with sun protection....... Sorry, but this should be a standard test if htc give the holder free..... July 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Design Like all HTC products this is beautlfully designed with lots of thought having gone into its functionality. Phone clips easily in the cradle and does what it's supposed to do, switching itself on and going into car mode. The only problem I've had is with the lighter recharger that does not seem to work in my car unless you jiggle it about, and then it still stops working. If you use this cradle with the HTC in car speaker then you have the (almost# perfect hands-free system. The recharging plug on this gadget works in my car so I use this with the cradle. One slightly negative point, I have noticed that the phone has a tendancy to get quite warm when in the cradle and is constantly on charge. I don't know if this is due to its being in the full glare of the sun, over the heating vents #set on cold) or what, but it is disconcerting. June 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by OK but but cannot work with HTC Case As with all HTC products the quality is excellent and in general the phone kit works well and is easy to use however there are some annoying flaws; one major fault is it doesn't work with the HTC case. Lots of people I know are complaining about this, there is not even a version you can buy that fits the case - bad show HTC, it's a pain having to remove the case each time I use it. Secondly and it may be a setting on my phone I cannot find but when I dock and undock the phone it rings for a couple of seconds, this is annoying. If anyone knows how to stop this I would be grateful. If you don't have a case I would recommend this phone. June 17, 2013
