The iPhone X takes great pictures, but if you’re the type of person who always yearns for more, then you might be in the market for a lens to add to your iPhone. For the past few days, I’ve been able to test out the SandMarc wide lens for the iPhone X. Here are the things that stood out to me.
Design & Build
The build of the lens feels premium. I was happy to see that Sandmarc did not cheap out when designing and building this lens. The metal feels great and the lens size makes it great for carrying around.
This is the main reason why you are reading this review. When it comes to photo quality, this lens isn’t going to provide you with clearer photos, but being that it is a wide angle lens, it will allow you to capture more in your photos. Below are a few examples to show how this lens helps you get more out of your pictures.
Mounting Case & Carrying Pouch:
Included with this lens you’ll get a carrying pouch and a mounting case for your iPhone X. While the carrying pouch was great. I am not too big of a fan of the actual mounting case. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love how thin it is but I did have a difficult time removing the case off of my iPhone X in the beginning. It made me fear that I would break the case. After removing it a few times though, it did get easier. This system is something I would like to see Sandmarc improve on in future models.
It is noteworthy to know that included with these items is a clip that you can use if you do not want to use the mounting case. The only issue I had with the clip was the ability to line up the lens with the iPhone camera. Other than that, it’s a pretty solid clip.
For $89.00, I’m actually pretty impressed with what Sandmarc has done with this lens. You get a nice thin case, along with a nice carrying pouch and of course a well built wide angle lens. If you are in the market for a clip-on lens for your iPhone X, then this is a product I can easily recommend. If you are in the market for other types of lenses you can also check out the other ones they have on their website, such as a fisheye lens, a Macro lens, and a telephoto lens.Buy From Sandmarc
