    I bought this while in the store.. I hadn't seen or heard about them before and decided to just buy them. Let me tell you, I had fun trying out this Macro setup! With the ability of 7x, 14x and 21x magnification on my phone, I got some really cool shots without having to lug around my full size digital camera. Extremely lightweight and portal, I can keep them in my pocket when I'm out about, they can stay in the glove box of my truck or in my purse. They come with a neck strap as well so you can carry the lenses that way if you need/want to put your phone in your pocket. The only drawback for me is that I have to take my phone out of it's case in order to use it which makes spontaneous picture shooting a bit of a chore. Other than that, I LIKE these lens!!

    Poor design for attaching

    The camera works but this review is about the product in its entirety. Attaching the camera to the phone is not well thought out. This design assumes you have a bare phone without a case or any form of screen protector. This renders the usability somewhat lacking. The device will not fit on your phone if you do not first remove it from the case and remove any screen protector on it. You can leave the screen protector on but you will destroy it in the course of mounting the device to the phone. Having to take your phone down to a bare device with no case or screen protector was a deal breaker for me and we will be returning the product.

    I would recommend this item to any I-phone 6 owner who is interested in seeing the little details in Life. I like to photograph bugs and while photographing the details of a beetle's antenna managed to get footage of a mite that was living on the beetle. The engineering makes attachment to the phone very tight and easy. The attachments make photographing 2 dimensions simple and accurate. The first photo shows the mite on the antenna. The mite is about 0.25 millimeters long.

    Decent photos but too much hassle

    While it was fun to be able to take macro with these lenses, I didn't like the fact that I had to remove my case every time I wanted to use them. Also, the fit was so tight, it cracked the tempered glass screen protector on my phone, and the shards of glass ended up scratching my brand new phone when I would remove the lens. I ended up returning this lens kit and purchasing one that clips on. It works just as well, and is less of a hassle to use. ** OLLOCLIP DOES MAKE IPHONE CASES SPECIFICALLY FOR USE WITH THESE LENSES -- I DON'T KNOW WHY BEST BUY DOESN'T SELL THEM. **

    Amps up the standard iPhone camera and photos it takes . Since carrying around a separate camera since smart phones arrived is a rarity this lens helps pick up the slack

    I had no doubt that this was a good buy. I was just waiting on the price to go down. it works as described. I only wish the lens could come out like the olloclip for my 8+. but not a deal breaker

    I searched hi and low for a good but inexpensive macro lens and with the help of a best buy associate I selected this product. It takes great close up shots and it is easy to add and remove from my iphone.

    I purchased this lens to use with my iPhone 6S+. It is very easy to attach, and the picture quality is great. This is a useful item for taking super close ups with an iPhone.

    Lens kit does not fit with a screen protector on your phone. Also, I was never able to get it to stay focused - auto-focus would keep screwing up the image just as I held it in the right spot.

    The reason for the one star is because I sent the lense. I like to keep my phone protected and you could use this with a case! Lense was fine if you want to use it without a case.

    This is the second lens i have bought. I was and am more than satisfied with each one. The reason why i got another was because i upgraded to a new phone.

    They are great glass optics, but you need to play with the focus in order to get the appropriate depth of field you see in wildlife photography, etc.

    Bought this for sporing events, a bit misleading though. This lens was for closeup pics only, like 2-4 inches. wasn't what I wanted.

    You have to get so close to the thing your trying to take a picture of in order to get a focused shot. Otherwise great great quality.

    The lens works better than I anticipated. The lens will not fit on your phone with a case.

    We followed instructions exactly, but all images were blurred, at all levels of magnification. Terrible product!
