Rated 1 out of 5 by Bluedefender Great product but doesn't last
After the first few months the iPhone will not charge and will not play music anymore. Waste of money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by patroller Power saving feature conflicts with alarm application
since the speaker shuts off after 10 minutes, I can't use it for an alarm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gus1 Sounds great, easy to use
Great sound from such an inexpensive compact unit. Bought this for an eleven year old for use with itouch. Sound quality is great for a bedroom, although a large living room might challenge its capacity. Unit is very simple and easy to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Revanso06 It did not work as expected
The sound on the speaker is good but it only sound if you're using the music app. If you try to use other apps it won't always work. That is really annoying for me. If you plan using your speaker only with the music app then it would do good, but if you wan to use apps as YouTube or other it won't work. If I plug the iPhone trough the aux cable then I can listen YouTube trough the speaker but not if I connect it on the dock. I think I will return the speaker

Rated 3 out of 5 by paul9788 Addendum to previous review
There are a few cases that will work with this product. It requires a minimal case with nearly the entire bottom cut away, such as the Elago S5 Slim Fit or the Ringke Slim LF. When using one of these cases I could seat properly onto the dock. The Music app, the Tunein Radio app, and Safari would work properly; however, some of my other apps would not. I have have three 'sleep sound' apps (Sleep Pillow, Sleep Bug and Relax M.O.P.) that will not transmit sound to the speaker dock but will pass sound to the iPhone speakers when plugged into an Apple wall charger. I see no explanation for this other than the possibility that the Lightning connector on the speaker dock is not %100 compatible with the Apple version.
However, since the unit works well as a whole, I am changing my review to 3 stars and would recommend this unit to most users.

Rated 1 out of 5 by paul9788 Will not work with case
I have tried to plug my iPhone 5 into this unit using two different cases: a Speck Candyshell Grip and a Switcheasy SW-TON5-BL. The Switcheasy case is the thinnest, with a thickness of well under 1/16 inch on the bottom where the Lightening connector opening is located. With either case, I can not even come close to being able to plug my iPhone in. What were the designers at Philips thinking!!! This unit is going to be returned ASAP!!!
