I think the above user just didnt read clearly. Granted i bought mine at gamestop where they have their information more accessible.

they even took it out for me too see. yes its "big" but by big its only maybe as long as a droid X laying down for width. about the height of a droid x (back doesnt go all the way on it) and its not that deep.

I personally own a Samsung Galaxy Note, on it it looks great. holds it well and amazing sound from such a small thing. yes i said small. this is NOT THAT BIG, the pic is confusing cause you think it is a a normal phone like the droid X or an HTC. its actually suppose to be a tablet.

Back to the real point of this review. if u are looking for a good dock that is portable for room to room needs like while showering and then desk work and have an android device and have been waiting for something like this then it is totally for you.

if you have some small space that u think this might be good in. just make sure u check the dimensions that are clearly outlined on the creators website =)

While I applaud iHome and other manufacturers who make products for users of Android devices, I understand that these manufacturers are challenged in that the size, shape, and location of input ports are not standard on Android devices.

iHome has tried to overcome this obstacle with the iC3 Portable Stand, Stereo Speaker and Charging Dock for Tablets and Smartphones. The design of the iC3 is problematic if the charging and earphone jacks are on the top of your device, as is the case for my smartphone. To connect the charging cable (a micro USB cable) to the phone, you must thread the wire from the bottom of the iC3 through a narrow channel into your device. If you have a case on your phone, this task becomes even harder.

Then, once you do connect the wire to your phone, the phone doesn't really sit well against the stand. And, since the charging and earphone jacks are on the top of my phone, I have to sit the phone on its side or upside down, which makes it harder to read the screen. Additionally, there's no Bluetooth, so you have to use the wire to connect the speaker to the device.

That's the bad news. The good news is that, for its size, the iC3 puts out decent sound. As is the case with all external speakers, the quality of the sound will depend on the device. I found that sound was much deeper and fuller with my phone or one of my MP3 players, and more tinny with an iPod. There's no volume switch on the iC3, so you must control the volume level with your device.

I also liked the iHome Sleep app. This is a handy little app that allows you to set multiple alarms, control wake and sleep volume, and lets you track snooze cycles, hours of sleep, as well as the times you go to bed and the times you wake, as well as other functions.

Works very well with my 7" Kindle Fire, speakers entirely acceptable. Clear sound anywhere in the room, and probably more. Connections are by short cables which allow for a variety of products to be attached. I'm able to use this with the Kindle in either portrait or landscape. I'm using it with the awesome "My Alarm Clock" from the App Store.

Now please allow me a little rant. When I ordered this there were 7 left in stock. I paid $32 and got Prime Shipping. When it arrived, I saw that there were 6 left, and the price dropped to $21 plus $5 shipping.

Buy yours NOW and make 'em sorry.

I have been using this product for the past several months. This inexpensive charging doc and speaker is ideal for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

I have always purchased iHome products for my Apple devices. When I got my Android device last fall, I was disappointed in the selection of accessories that would both serve as an external speaker and a charger. I did not need an alarm clock because I am happy with the alarm clock app on my phone. I am also not a major audiophile. I just wanted something to play some decent-sounding music while I'm cooking or entertaining guests.

This device is the perfect size for my Samsung Galaxy S3 and meets all of my needs. Sure, it would be better if this device were Bluetooth--but for the $34 price tag, I think it's great.

Originally, I had said that the existing USB cord "might" not work with the LG G Vista, or similar phones, when the phone is in the horizontal position. But that one could then use a standard USB charging cord, in the place of the one that comes with the unit.

However, I have found, recently that the charging cord that comes with the unit has a groove in the plug that goes to the phone. Where it can be solidly secured in the unit for upright charging and sound docking. At the same time, the cord can also be used when the unit is in the horizontal position, because the pug that goes to the unit can be freed from the track for holding the phone in the vertical position. Thereby allowing the phone to charge, while at the time utilizing the sound dock for videos and movies.

And the sound quality is excellent. I highly recommend this product for anyone. It's a great product for the price.
