Get the FlexSMART X2 instead
on July 27, 2012
Couldn't decide between this and the FlexSMART for my car, which lacks an aux-in port. Eventually went with the SMARTmini, based on the superb reviews and its portability. However, I regretted my decision just 3 days later. The DC barrel, while sturdy, is too long that it comes extremely close to my transmission stick. Its lack of a flexible neck left me only two ways to bypass this issue - turn it to the left or turn it to the right, both inconvenient. No power button and the sound quality through aux-in could also have been better. Good construction though.
Didn't test out the Bluetooth calling, as everything else wasn't cutting it for me.
Now that I have the FlexSMART, I can confidently say that I like it much better.
