    Excellent little dock- just a bit pricey

    • Written by from Wakefield

    As a couple of the reviews of this product stated that you couldn't use Touch ID when the 5S was docked, I was a little wary of buying it. However, I'm glad I did as it is an excellent, stylish and practical little dock. It complements my gold 5S perfectly. And I have no problems at all unlocking my phone with my fingerprint when it is docked. Perhaps the other reviewers have bigger fingers than me, hence their problems? Whatever the reason, do not be put off buying this dock for fear that Touch ID will not work.
    My only criticism is the usual one with Apple's own accessories, namely the price. £25 is a little steep for such a small object. But. of course, it is solidly built and superb quality as expected.

    Perfect for my 5S

    I don't understand why others have a problem using their fingerprint to unlock the phone whilst in the Dock. I can use it fine. The front of the dock is just at the bottom of the silver ring on the home button so none of the button is covered. I just place the tip of my index finger on it and it unlocks. Perhaps they haven't fully scanned their finger.

    The phone pushes in with a reassuring click unlike my old iPhone 4 which seemed to slop around bit in its dock. Due to the click, though, you can't just lift the phone out of the dock. However, you can remove the phone single handedly with a little practise by wrapping your hand around the phone, gripping between thumb and base of index finger and pushing down with your little finger.

    A little overpriced for what it is so one star dropped.
