Yes, even the home screen works in landscape mode :-)
small catch: some apps (Payback, Simfy) are (not yet) Landscape-suited, but all factory vorhandnen Apps go "cross".
The workmanship is very good, practically is the anti-slip bottom of the docking station.
The only minus point: the SGS projects laterally slightly beyond the station. Who is to inadvertently could break the plug connector when the SGS is pulled forward. The existing depression could therefore lower and the edge of his right pulled slightly upward, so that you can the SGS only side push and pull - so nobody even gets the idea to pull the SGS forward. But you can not have everything!
It is a product photo available on which the station is obviously brown and SGS protrudes significantly also forward - this is not so! Whether it is a replica of the product in the picture, my knowledge decides.
My cradle closes almost flush with the SGS! And is in a beautiful, black clearcoat! Looks classy and consists of the 08/15-iphone-stations clearly from ;-)
On the back of fairly low charging and audio (jack) connector attached; very convenient as from the front no cable clutter can be seen.
The sound of music playback is good.
Of course you can also catch per station with an audio system connect (headphones prospers well, but this is not recommended in the manual).
The described in the instructions App "Samsung Desk Home" there is no (longer) in the Android Market (for me not to understand what drives so as Samsung, but that's another site;. Lt internet research but this is apparently the concrete used phone dependent (branding problem?)
But there is a solution,
if the market does not contain the Samsung Apps: You charging out of the Market "DOCK SOUND Redirector" (ad-free, free!) down.
. This app not only the sound (and maximum volume) via jack connector for the docking station can be set, but according to the selection menu for a car mount (I have not yet - but soon)
Now you can finally enjoy Youtube, Slide and Co. + Music optically beautifully packaged :-)
