So close to 5 stars but needs improvement
Have 2. First works very well iPhone slides right in. Second uses much thicker felt pads and works but 'clunky'. Quality control obviously needs attention. As noted the speakers are muted by the holder. A deficiency which could be easily fixed. And the bottom opening is slightly narrow to slip (some) connectors through. like the design concept. Wish it were executed more consistently and design tweaked. If my second unit was identical to the first would be 4 stars.
Pros: Simple to use and effective.
Cons: Inconsistent build. Some units may function better than others.
