Fun and Useful Gadget – H8001 Universal Clip-On Wide Angle Macro Lens for iPhone 5 / iPad 4 - Black + Silver Reviews

Pros:
This product has good design and build quality. It can be easily setup and can take good macro and wide angle (more like fish eye) photos on my Samsung Galaxy S3.
Cons:
I'm not sure if this is because of the squarish shaped camera hole in the S3, but the edges of the lens come into view around the corners of the image. It's not a big problem (and creates a pseudo vignetting effect to boost), but it's still something to note.
Other:
Personally I'm quite OCD so the need to constantly readjust the lens in order to get it centralized with the camera lens is quite annoying. If you're like me then it might be better to simply get the magnetic ones.
Bottomline:
It's not exactly cheap, but definitely cheaper than most of the alternatives out there. If you like playing with your phone camera this is definitely a good buy. If you know someone like that then they make good gifts too!
