For under $8 I can't complain. But it's terribly cheap. My kit came with fish eye lens & a macro lens but was missing the wide lens. It also came with two sets of instructions and mounting magnets. Let's take this piece by piece.
The mounting kit came with two iPhone flash-friendly magnets (per kit), & one complete circle ring that is not compatible with the iPhone flash. It also came with a key chain/dog tag type thing that is supposed to be a "hand strap." It's pointless.
The instructions were broken English and hard to understand.(example: "4. It should be grateful to use the phone if the camera lens at the center, on the direct absorption in the Ring to use. (see chart 4)" um, what?)
The iPhone compatible magnets didn't even have adhesive on them & they aren't correctly polarized to keep the lens centered, they always slide around a little. Although the magnets IN the lenses stick to each other VERY well!
The fish eye lens is decent. It adds quite a bit of a vignette to the photo & there's a faint circle in the center of the photos as well, but it doesn't lose clarity and isn't absolutely horrible.
The macro lens is a lie. It doesn't increase clarity of small up-close shots. It doesn't do anything. It's pointless.
I wish I could comment on the quality of the wide lens, but seeing as how it wasn't included in my kit I cannot.
All in all, save your money and splurge for an Olloclip. For reals.
I will be contacting the seller of this and demanding a refund.

The magnets don't stay in place very well so don't expect that you can keep them on your phone. You also have to put a small metal circle around the iPhone lens so that the magnetic lens will latch on so it looks a little funky. My biggest complaint is that you can see dark edges in every photo. It's worth it to buy the olliclip unless you're okay with cropping every photo

🎥 Video Reviewed

Note: I tested this on three phones, and none of which are noted in the description of working on. Therefore, I can only speak for the phones I personally tested this kit on, and none others. Please watch my video for more information.

I received the XCSOURCE® 3 in 1 Camera Lens Kit a few days ago.

Now with a lot of things I get off of Amazon, at first I was a bit skeptical on these. I have used clip on lenses, and have found them to be okay, but these don't have any clips, and use magnets instead. However, On the majority of the phones I have used them on, these do work well, but please see the con section I have below.

Pros:
📷 Work as intended.

📷 Three lenses: Fish eye, Wide, & macro. (wide & macro are the same lens. Unscrew it to use the macro, but keep together to use the wide.)

📷 Really good price at under $7 (currently at time of this review)

📷 In some cases you can put a case over the phone with the ring attached. Works in the case with my Lumia. I still however have to take the case off to use the lenses.

📷 Good people at xcsource. They actually provided me with this lens kit so I could provide my honest feedback of it in this review, whether it be positive or negative. They care about improving their product for their consumers, which is great in my book.

Cons:
📷 May not work with your phone. I cannot speak for the phones listed in compatibility, but If your phone has a flat back and the lens is flush with that, this kit should work well. However, you do also need to check the lens itself, as one some phones, the actual lens is not in the direct center of where you think it is, and is actually off center. This will not allow this kit to work as well, and will be like on my LG that I tested this kit on, which works, just not as well.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I am primarily using the Lumia phone right now, and this kit works perfectly with it. Therefore, I have no problem rating the kit 5 stars.

🎥 Please watch my video for more information on these, including seeing the image these can produce through a phones camera lens.
I've added a picture so you can see these while on a phone.

This gift was for my husband and he enjoys using/playing with the item. Wish the item had an easier way to carry as it can get easily lost.

love the mounting system but added some super glue when I found a final spot. Just to the metal ring part

It's very cheap and it doesn't stick on well but it still works. Except one of the lenses never came? It didn't come with the smallest lenses and I'm wondering where it is.

First time I purchased a product without reading the reviews.
Only received 2 lenses.
Requires you to glue a magnetic piece to your phone.

It's ok for the price. Not what I would call quality lens but this is not easy to pull off and make inexpensive so if you are looking for a novelty lens it will do the job ok.
