There's no doubt that the many items in this kit don't add to much money, and maybe I should have been more aware that you get what you pay for. I've had a few problems with some of this kit, whereas other parts have proven to be quite useful.
- The gel case is functional, but the side charging cut out is inaccurate, meaning that some of the non-HTC chargers I have just can't get past it. The native HTC charger does fit. Unfortunately, it does make my beautiful, expensive phone look cheap!
- The gel desk stand is a great idea, with one big flaw - it attracts dust, so after a while, it's no longer sticky and looks awful. Is there a way to clean this? It's not very stable.
- The screen protectors have a picture of an iPhone on the front cover, nevertheless, they are the size of the HTC ONE X screen. Unfortunately, they don't take into account the curvature of the screen edging and so leave you with an air bubble line all the way around the edges. There are five, which is generous, and they would probably work fine if trimmed. NOTE: these protectors do not take account of the proximity sensor to the left of the HTC sign, which will inhibit its functionality.
- The rubber plunger desk stand works for a minute or two then disconnects and the phone slumps off it.
+ The charging wire is small and neat and very useful for my car.
+ Speed of delivery was excellent.
I haven't used the car carry cradle - it has no instructions, and it looks like I've got to permanently attach a sticky pad to my dashboard, which I'm not willing to do as I've seen these things permanently damage my previous cars. The holder is good quality and versatile, but I'd prefer one with a windscreen suction cup, or one that attaches to a vent.
Overall - you can cannibalise this cheap kit and take from it what you need. Even if I don't use half this stuff, for £19.95, there are items that can be altered to make this good value for money. Compared with the HTC branded products, these items come at a fraction of their prices.
