      I have never had so much difficulty in buying an alarm clock in my life. I did not think it was going to be this stressful with all the new tech. on everything now with bluetooth, NFC, Aux. inputs and wireless charging. I have been looking for a new "Alarm clock" for a few weeks now. I got a Best Buy gift card for my Birthday and I really did not need anything until now because my old alarm clock just quit working with no sound out of it. So, I check out Best Buy and looked at the "small" selection of alarm clocks available for purchase in the store. This one caught my eye BECAUSE of the wireless charging pad on the top of the unit. That was the one thing that I thought I needed at first. Now onto my review: Pro's- 1. The display is huge on this so there is no way I could not see it from my bed. 2. I love the controls, separate volume for the sleep function, separate volume for the power on and for the alarms! 3. The charging pad works just fantastic with my Galaxy 8 Plus with the case on it. I have yet to have any troubles with it charging. 4. NFC pairing is easy BUT you need to do it everytime before you put it on the charging pad before going to bed. 5. Bluetooth pairing is easy as well. 6. The compact design is great and fits well with my head board setup. 7. Volume is good enough and loud enough even for me. (i need it loud to wake up) (tones aside from my phone) 8. Playing music, radio stations from your phone (Iheart radio, spotifiy) is quite simple and works well. 9. The sleep feature is wonderful and works very well. 10. The fact that the buttons light up is a big plus and it has a dimmer feature which is nice. Con's- 1. The only thing I really wanted from this was to be able to use my phone for the alarms not the tones provided with the unit. Sadly, I did testing and out of the 10 times I set my alarm correctly to use the phone for an alarm, 5 out of the ten times it worked. Not good enough for me. The tones are to low and did not wake me up. I have a ringtone that's a army trumpet sound and it is very effective at waking me up from a dead sleep. The 5 times it did work, its very loud and would wake me up. I was hoping for nothing but good from this and it fails sadly in the most important part of it. 2. Sound is okay nothing ground breaking here. It breaks up a bit at the top end of the volume. 3. Price is just a bit to high for this as well. In short of it, as a bluetooth speaker its an average sounding speaker with a lot of extras thrown in. I just wish that the bluetooth was more reliable, with that I will be returning it unless anyone has a solution to my problem... :/

      Excellent device

      I love this device, does everything it says on the description. The clock/alarm function is perfect for us. The brightness of the display is adjustable and the dim is just the right amount of dim at night, not so bright that it will bother me and I like sleeping with all lights off. The alarm volume goes from really soft to really loud progressively in a reasonable period so you can turn it off or snooze it before it wakes the whole household. The Bluetooth speaker function works well and the sound quality is good, not as good as a Bose when turned all the way up, but still relatively good. The Qi charging is very useful as I just put my iPhone X on it and it charges very fast. My husband has an otter box case on his iPhone X and it works just fine. He has a magnet for his phone holder in the car and he had to take the magnet off though or it won’t charge. I have to put the phone a certain way on the clock otherwise it won’t charge but it’s a minor deal for me. Aligning the phone on top of the clock is logical anyway if you don’t want your phone to drop easily off to the floor. Overall this is an excellent buy.

      Best Clock Yet

      First off let me say I am extremely picky about what I buy. That being said, this is an amazing buy! I originally had the iHome orb that changed colors for almost a year and the snooze for the alarm ended up being too close to the rest of the buttons. But due to recently upgrading to the Note 8, I decided it was time to get upgrade my clock as well. I was skeptical at first that the Qi charging wouldn't work with the case on my phone. I was proven pleasantly wrong. I'll admit it takes putting it properly on the Qi portion, and due to not seeing where i put it one night i didn't get a charge, but it has yet to fail if i put it on properly. Another good point is that all the buttons are directly on the front and easier to see and use. Not once have I hit the wrong button! All in all, it was definitely worth my investment! I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a clock and a charger and also likes to save space.

      Perfect solution for music and wireless charging!

      Just recently got an iPhone 8 for my birthday last week and I thought to myself since the 8 now has wireless charging natively, why not get this to replace my current iHome instead of having the one I used to have along with a Qi charger alongside it. This thing is the solution I just needed. Not only does it have Bluetooth as well as an auxiliary input (no FM like my previous one, which isn't a huge deal because of apps like iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Spotify, and many others), but a Qi charger too. Unlike over reviewers, I've had no problems with the placement of my phone on it in relation to charging. All I need to do is just set it, forget it, and by morning time I'll have a fully charged phone. It's worked flawlessly with charging my iPhone 8.

      Good quality but finicky

      Overall the iHome dual alarm clock with wireless charging is good for the price since it acts as your alarm clock and your phones wireless charging receiver. The only two things I would take away or the LCD is a little dim even at its brightest and the wireless receiver is a bit finicky. You will set your phone on top the night before thinking it's on there correctly but wake up to about 7% battery life. If it moves even slightly off center then it'll start charging and sometimes even when you don't move it it stops charging. Once you know where to place your phone on the wireless receiver it'll happen a lot less. The USB slot in back is a nice feature and so is it's Bluetooth capability. Overall I would recommend this product for its positives which outweigh its negatives

      Good, but needs a bigger charge pad.

      Everything about this unit is great except that it feels like the charging pad has to be positioned exactly right to charge my iPhone 8 Plus. It COULD be just the phone's limited area for charging, but I don't believe it is because all my other charging pads work very well no matter the position pretty much. Sound quality is decent, bluetooth pairing is easy and the additional USB slot for charging other devices is a great added bonus. It doesn't have an AM/FM radio, but if you're charging your phone with this, you should have the radio app of your choice to make it happen anyway.

      Does exactly what it says it does

      It does what it advertises and does it quite well. Bought when my prior QI / speaker / alarm died, and this is a great replacement. Does a great job of charging my Galaxy S8, the Bluetooth setup is automatic, and the alarm clock features are excellent. Good sound and decent volume without harsh distortion. One caution, unless your phone supports QI charging you will need to use the USB port with your current or replacement charging cable. Apple users may get QI charging in the iPhone 8. Otherwise there are many QI adapters available for most phones that don't have this feature. Oh, and it's not a radio, not in my requirement list as I use my phone for audio, but...

      I will start out by saying, I like iHome alarm clocks. I purchased this one to replace one that's numbers were fading out. I can't speak to the wireless charger as it doesn't work for iPhone. I can say the sound on the device is very nice for this type of device. All that being said, I had issues with this clock resetting on the 5 day alarm option. I had to keep turning it on which defeated the purpose. I also slept through the beeping alarm once when it didn't connect via Bluetooth. I tried to get use to the clock and gave it three weeks before returning. I ended up purchasing a different iHome model (iPLWBT5) off BestBuy.com and it works great.

        This could have been operator error, but it's difficult to say for sure. The reviewer should have contacted iHome Support. We would have been glad to help. iHome
