For the most part, my review would be positive too.
I use the holder on my windscreen, so can't comment on how it works mounted on the dashboard, but it's working well on the windscreen, and creates a very firm mount on the windscreen, and the grip on the phone is also very tight.
It's only fallen off once, when I'd left the car parked in full sun on a hot day: not surprising it fell off, and certainly not a fault - I can't see this happening if you were driving, as you'd have the ventilation on, and the windscreen wouldn't get as hot.
It's very flexible in terms of positioning, so you can get your phone exactly how you want it. It's also possible to position the phone in the mount so that the camera has a clear view, unobstructed by the mount, if that's useful to you.
The mount can be folded back in on itself when not in use, keeping it very neat and unobtrusive.
The desk mount is obviously the product of witchcraft, as it grips both the desk and the phone by a completely non-obvious means - it's not even as sticky as a post-it note to touch, but sticks magically! (though I think I once read/heard something about this on a science programme).
The polycarbonate case does what it says on the tin. It's a good fit - such a good fit, that I found it a bit tricky to remove. So I've decided not to use this, as I don't really care if the back of my phone gets the occasional scuff mark. If you really want to keep your phone in a pristine out-of-the-box state, then it'd be very good at that.
I'd already got an "official" Samsung screen protector, so haven't used the screen protectors that are included in this pack. Useful to have spares for when the time comes.
The only real disappointment in this pack (and the reason I've docked one star off the score) is that the "Mini Portable Desk Stand and Stylus" is nothing like the one shown as the last item in the product description (though is accurately portrayed in the video & the 7th product image when you click on the large image at the top of the page. It isn't a stylus by any stretch of the imagination. Instead, it's a rather strange piece of rubber with a not terribly effective sucker on one end (maybe it works better if you've the polycarbonate case fitted), and a ball of rubber on the other. I've tried a few times to get it to hold the phone, but it's a very precise balancing act, and even if you manage to balance it, as soon as you touch it, if falls over. Might as well just put the phone flat on the desk. Totally pointless lump of rubber!
Car dash mount - One of the main reasons I bought this product. Worked fine for the 1st few trips but now keeps coming away from the dash, dropping the phone. I may have to buy some stronger glue!
Desk Stand - Works well but 1st time I used it it stuck very firmly, I thought I'd never get it off.
Car charger - Great, does exactly what it should do.
Cover - No issues, easy to get on and off. Would hardly know it was there.
Main reason for the low rating is the dash holder keeps falling.
it was like opening Pandora's box
Brilliant value for money
The suction mount holder works well in all my vehicles.. including on the hood of my riding mower!
The disappointment was the strangely designed rubber tip stylus. The tip fell off after only 3 days of use and I could not remount it on the stylus. The stylus bends body opens on a hinge, but to what end, I could not tell you. I cound find no instructions regarding this innovation. It was however easy to hold and comes with a wee stretchy thingy to keep it with the device by use of the earphone plug receiver. This was nice too.
Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback on this kit!
Overall a great bit of kit for the S5 at a very reasonable price and I wouldn't be without it now.
The little stand which also has the cleaning pad on and the pointer is very handy to just carry around every day in your pocket or to attach to your phone.
The charger with the USB adapter in it is extremely useful as I can use it to charge 2 things at once, whether it be me and my partners phone or my phone and an ipod.
The in car phone holder comes in very useful when driving if I want to use my phone as a sat navigation and the manoeuvrability on it is great.
The pack also comes with 5 screen protectors which are useful if you are trying to avoid any scratches on your phone.
All in all, this is a great kit to have and the products are very well made
Overall, a top deal for the price.
I especially love the cradle to sit the phone on, ideal for watching films when you are in the bath etc
For the price it will be hard to beat.
And the service was great kept me informed at each step and came within days.
The phone holder for the windscreen is great too, although it did take me a while to find the best position, horizontal or vertical for it, and once you do and find the car charger reaches fine it's great.
Overall, I'd buy this, plenty of helpful value in this package!
