Keyboard and mouse worked straight away. But I could not find a way to satisfactorily convert from the HDMI output to DVI or VGA for the LaCie, so bought a 14 inch HDMI monitor. It worked fine plugged into the dock's HDMI port.
Given the problems I had with HDMI conversion I wonder about the HDMI implementation on the dock but could not find any detailed technical specification. Nor could I find a detailed specification of the USB ports. I think they are only USB 2.0 but don't know.
With external storage the dock will interface with only FAT32 devices up to 32GB so I copied my working files from my NTFS backup to a USB memory stick.
The dock also works with a powered USB hub to provide, in effect, more than three ports.
In summary, the dock is very neat and works well.
Once connected to the dock my NOTE 3 works like a dream.PIcture is fantastic and I've also connected my keyboard and mouse and it works as good as my home computer.
Sound through hdmi into my Jbl sb400 soundbar is also great.
The note 3 works a dream and I don't have to run about looking for a charger.FANTASTIC
MHL 1.0, not 2.0, so only 30 fps is supported, as opposed to 60. Interaction with the phone seems to lag noticeably when forcing landscape mode and outputting to a (Samsung) TV as opposed to portrait mode. The Smart Dock seems to have issues displaying at full resolution when using many computer monitors. There are a few other reports of this on forums.
If you can't get the dock to recognize keyboard/mouse, try restarting the phone.
It's good for using your phone as a quick low-power consumption desktop computer. The Tasker app can probably be used to implement keyboard shortcuts to make navigating more efficient.
Just wanted to let everyone know that despite some comments to the contrary, the smart dock does indeed work with the Note 3. Please see video here:
So, bottom line, this site advertises that it will work for the Note 3...... It will NOT!
i cannot "sit" my s4 mini on the docking station.
i can connect the micro usb cable to the s4mini but the device of the docking station has not the same shape as the micro usb.
how can i fix this problem?
Have tried many items for s3 and I am happy pretty sure will be happy with new product from mobilefun uk
As usual Mobilefun's service is first class. They have to be one of the best internet retailers around.
I'll not dwell into the product in this review but on the service provided by mobile fun.
After enough searching I found that the dock was available for the lowest price here in INR.
I had ordered this item from the India site. The item was shipped the very next day by Royal International mail and I received the item in India within a week. I was worried all the while since there is no tracking availability. However the item reached well within expected time.
One important thing to note is that the package may be opened by customs in India before it reaches you. You may notice the Indian Post tape which they will use while resealing.
Impressive when you considered I now live in New Zealand! I can only imagine that as soon as I had hit the purchase button that a massive logistic exercise must have kicked in.
The dock actually accepts the S4 with ease without appearing flimsy (a concern of one review I had read).
I haven't checked the ports on the dock yet but as a bedside docking station then I meets my requirements
I was expecting the Dock to be delivered with the North American plug but to my surprise it came as European version with a travel adapter. I don't like to use the adapter when connecting the devices.
The docking of the Galaxy S4 feels a bit flimsy and the phone is not stable, any small hit or shaking might let the phone fall. Maybe with a cover things would be better but haven't tried that yet.
Overall, it is a great device, but I would appreciate if the description was more accurate on this website regarding the plug.
The product is good and everything works as promised.
was very happy with the service provided by Mobilefun during my last shipment but with this shipment it took more than 10 days for the goods to be delivered mainly because the invoice with the shipment was not clear and inspite of my repeated request through mail there was delay and only after i telephonically contacted mobilefun in UK from india i got the invoice and forwarded to DHL and then i had to request again for DDP delivery the same problem which i had with my first shipment. overall i am disappointed with the service as i wasnt getting reply to my mail sent to mobilefun .still feel mobilefun is the best sellers of mobile accessories.i still wish to buy from mobilefun if they give some attention to delivery duty problems which they have to mention on the parcel when sending the shipment
I noticed that hot-swapping a memory stick didn't seem to work. I needed to disconnect and reconnect the cable to the Smart Dock before a new USB stick was recognised. Attaching an SD card in a USB adapter seemed to require a powered hub.
I had thought that as both dock and phone accept micro-usb then I should be able to attach the phone to the dock via a micro-USB extension cable so I could use the phone off-cradle and still use HDMI etc. Unfortunately the part that connects the dock to the phone appears to be non-standard and I couldn't get it to fit a female micro-USB.
In spite of the minor gripes listed above it is amazing that it does what it says on the tin! I highly recommend it.
