    Default Moto X: Desktop Dock

    ust getting my Moto X and want a desktop dock. After searching this thread there appears to be 3 docks that can be used, but they all have conflicting reviews. Now that everyone has used the Moto X and docks for a while which one do you recommend?

    I've got the Griffin Powerdock at home and work. Highly recommend it. Can be used with many cases. With out a case, a removable rubber insert cradles the phone snuggly.

    The only flaw is it needs more heft for easier one-handed use. Though I can still remove my phone one-handed by twisting/jiggling it a bit.

    I like using Dayframe to start a slideshow through Android Daydream when docked. Another program like Lucid can enhance Daydream as well.

    I have the Motorola Flip Stand. Its not really a charging dock, its more of a stand to hold your device. It can hold it portrait or landscape. You can use any charger to charge your device while its in this stand. In fact you can use this stand for any device. It holds my Moto X & my Nexus 10 securely in portrait or landscape. I've also tried an SGS4, iPhone 5s, Nexus 7, Droid 4 & an HTC One M7. Works perfect for all devices. But, its just a stand. That's all. I find it very useful to securely hold my devices though. I have 3 of the stands. One on my bedside table, one in the kitchen & one in the family room. Amazon had them on sale for $18 when I bought them.

    I have read some bad reviews of the Griffin dock such as the phone not charging. Should these be ignored?

    Can the Motorola Flip Stand activate Daydream on the Moto X?
