Worth the money - Particularly good for iPhone video,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Leegoal(TM) Detachable 0.67X Wide Angle Macro Lens for Apple iPhone, iPod Nano 5, Camera Phones (Camera Lens Smaller than 9.5mm) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Overall it's cheap and does the job. Based on use on an iPhone 4:
Photos: Nice for wide shots but you get the "fisheye" effect (vigneting in the corners and considerable barrel distortion)
Videos: Very nice, due to the phone cropping the image for video, the vigneting is cropped out and barrel distortion less of an issue. The iPhone 4 and 4s have a particularly narrow lens which usually causes considerable shaking in handheld videos. Using a wide angle lens lessens this effect.
Macros: A nice feature but the camera looses it's ability to auto-focus. Focus is done by moving the object closer or further from the lens. Focus is around 1" from the lens which is quite close and the phone can often shadow the object you're taking the photo of. With a bit of fiddling around however, you can get good macros from this lens. (Note the lens separates into two pieces, using only the base for macro shots, and both for wide)
The adhesive ring with flash cutout for the iPhone 4 and 4s is important, however the flash is only good without the lens as the lens itself will shadow the flash when used.

How difficult is it to get a case on the iphone 4 after applying the adhesive magnetic ring?

There is a free App on iphone called "ollocorrect" that corrects the distortion created by the wide angle lens.
