Good build quality, but it is lacking two features that are advertised, and very important to me:
1- It doesn't work with my case, which is a fairly thin silicone case. I can't imagine it would work with hardly any cases if it doesn't work with this one. There is an insert that you are supposed to remove when using a case on the phone, but the insert is very thin.
2- There is no Car Mode that launches when the phone is inserted in the dock. I even installed Car Home Ultra, an app in Google Play, which has a setting to auto launch when docked. It doesn't. There are no instructions included that describe how any sort of Car Mode is supported, just a little note on the box that says "Supports Car Mode"
As I stated before, and further clarify now, this is a well-constructed product and can do well for those that do not use a large case or care about car dock mode or using their phone as a video camera in the car. For those that wish to keep their phones protected and have anti-shock cushioning, an iBOLT xProDock Active Car Dock/Holder/Mount may be more of the route to take. I purchased one of the iBOLT devices straight away after my experience with this Encased Mount and will be giving the Encased mount to a friend with a Galaxy S4 and does not use a case.
Buy this only if you have a Galaxy S4 ACTIVE. Will not fit a regular S4.
As quoted from the Technical Details
"Fits Samsung Galaxy S4 Phone with or without a protector case, snap-on cover or skin"
The description says that the cradle will hold the phone in the Otterbox Defender case, which is larger than the one I use. Not true! Removing the insert in the cradle is just enough for the naked phone to fit.
The suction base is substantial and strong and for now sits without a cradle, attached to the corner of my windshield. I will not be using it, unless I am on an extended road trip. For now, this has been a waste of money.

The ad said it could be used with the phone in a case. I have a very thin case, but have to remove it for the phone to fit into the dock. Then it is a very tight fit.Published 5 months ago by Charles Bailey
