All you need to do is put your phone in the slot, and AutoDock's arms will put in place and plug it into a USB-C, MicroUSB or Lightning charger.

So I'm guessing my s8 plus won't work since it's 6.2" right?

since it has the width of a much smaller device I bet it would fit.
That's one of the problems we run into with this new formfactors that are now coming up

I'm not liking how the dock grabs the phone and places it. I feel like it's asking for the charging pin to get broken and your out of a dock. or scratching up the bottom of the device

Yeah, I worry for any phone that the port is near center but not perfectly centered. S7 port looks closer to the back of the phone than front, wonder if that matters?

Never plug my phone in so pointless for me.

wireless charging is harder than this?

The idea is to just drop the phone in there and go, so to them yes. Also to the people who have less than a 60 iq and someone survive this world and own expensive phones without a case, then wireless charging would be harder than this.

Hey everybody, thanks for the great feedback! We updated the page to be more clear and include the phone width specs. The S8+ plus will work and there is a render of it in the dock linked in the comments section. There is a manual front-to-back adjustment so your port only needs to be centered left to right. The connector is not rigidly attached and is recessed low enough as to not drag across the bottom of your phone. Thanks again for the comments!
