You get what you pay for...

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.
