Difficult to use – Lightning 8-Pin Female to Male Data Sync / Charging Dock Station + 3.5mm Jack for iPhone 5 - White Reviews

Pros:
Single device for three uses: charge your iPhone5, transfer data and listen to your music. Light, and the color matches other similar Apple products.
Cons:
Can't be used with one hand, you should be careful when you plug your iPhone to this dock, in order to not damage your iPhone or the dock. The base doesn't fit well the iPhone: the indentation is far too wide.
Other:
It's not as useful as docks for previousmodels of iPhone, where the audio was digitally obtained from the iPhone connector. Here, the audio plug protudes a lot, and quality decreases as the plug catches dirt.
Bottomline:
Forget it. Go for a simple dock for data transfer. The audio plug is not a good solution. Hopefully they'll find out a way to get the audio from the data connector (lightning).
