Returning.

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"

I just received this product today and went out for a drive to test it straight away. While this product seems to be of high quality and of sturdy design, it still is a bit substandard for only a few small reasons. First, I prefer to protect my S4 handset with an OtterBox Defender Series Case and this car dock prevents me from keeping the Defender on my phone while using the dock. This is important to me because I travel often and would prefer not to have to take my phone out of the Otterbox to use the dock and replace the phone back into the case when I leave the vehicle. Second, I noticed that this dock does not invoke Car Dock mode when you insert the stub cable into the charge port on the phone. This may be a trivial reason but when using a dock, I prefer to be able to use the Car Dock Mode feature built into the phones software. Third, while recording HD video during my drive, the handset was rattling ever so slightly in the cradle itself. This was not apparent until I played the video back and heard the rattling sounds. This could be a deal breaker for people who wish to use their S4 for recording a scenic drive or performance related video.

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.

it didn't fit my S4 with a case on, and it had a very short lead which didn't reach my car's DC power outlet

The description states this is for the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is incorrect. This product is clearly labeled on the box as being for the Samsung Galaxy S4 ACTIVE. It is a minor detail, but makes a HUGE difference as the S4 Active is larger in size compared to the standard S4. If you try to fit a standard S4 into this dock, it will not fit.

Buy this only if you have a Galaxy S4 ACTIVE. Will not fit a regular S4.

I could forgive the holder for not performing well with a case, as there are myriad cases avaialble. But the poor clamp and insert means it doesn't hold well without a case either, which is unnacceptable. It also covers the volume buttons on the phone, which makes for annoying and dangerous use. Not worth your time or money.

I like to be able to see my phone in a cradle when I drive. I can see maps and incoming calls easily. With this cradle, I am unable to use it unless I remove the Otterbox commuter case completely. I'm not going to do that every time that I get in my car.

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 car mount looks and feel good. It works awesome if you don't use a case for your phone which is funny because they make it seems like you can use it with most cases. I have the GS4 and bought 3 different cases because of this unit (Samsung view cover,yesso view cover-which is crap by the way,and the poetic clear case) and none of them fits. The company should list on the ad which case fits their product.
