Samsung Galaxy S7 Lens Cover Review
Image quality and when to use the lenses
What about image quality?
It’s good, but not without issues. The main benefit of the lenses is the versatility they offer and the possibility to shoot from more convenient physical distance from the object. However, in purely technical image quality terms, they come with some compromises: there are artifacts noticeable on images and softer detail towards the edges.
At a price of $150, we feel that this set is a bit on the pricey side for most users, though there aren't really that many alternatives if you're looking to augment your smartphone photography experience.
The big question is whether these lenses allow you to capture better pictures with your phone? The simple answer is 'yes, definitely, if you know how to use them properly'.
The lenses perform mostly well: technically, image quality comes out a bit softer and with less detail than with the built-in camera lens alone, but for non-perfectionists, the versatility offered by these lenses makes up for those issues.
We are not happy with the containers in the lens - just get a small pouch to carry them, and we wish they had a snap mechanism for an easier and more reassuring mounting. Still, for smartphone photo enthusiasts, the Galaxy S7 Lens Cover is a fun product that unlocks the doors to more creative and ambitious photography.
