10 accessories for taking awesome photos and videos with a smartphone
Remember the last time you saw someone using a point-and-shoot camera? We don't either. They've been pushed towards extinction by our smartphones, and for a number of good reasons. First of all, smartphones can take pretty decent photographs, and secondly, we have them on us all the time. But while a smartphone can snap pretty pictures on its own, its camera can be taken to an even greater level with the help of a camera accessory, such as a fancy lens, a steady tripod, or an extra flash, to give a few examples. That's what we've picked for you today – a fine selection of cameraphone accessories. Tell us in the comments which one you like best!

An alternative to #5 is if you already have an Android Wear watch, you can remotely control the shutter via the watch through Bluetooth

Why not mentioning Sony QX? All of those are like a baby's play in front of Sony's QX Series. Pricie and akward, but take awesome pic. If you only consider the IQ, then it's no brainer.

Easy Macro lens seems like the most versatile and practical of all of them...
