I had the iP4GZC before. I bought it on Amazon, but ended up getting the iPhone 5 a week later. I returned that one, and bought this since I didnt need the dock anymore. The build on these are really solid. They are heavy, which is a very rare thing these days. It gets super loud and can bump! Havent tried the battery power, but everything else has certainly exceeded my expectations. Very VERY VERY happy with this one! Highly recommend!
