Shortly before I went on holiday I was given the opportunity to review a Selfie Phone Clip. Knowing we were going away on a lovely sunny holiday, I jumped at the chance. Who doesn’t love taking a good selfie, especially when you have an amazing backdrop?!
The product, designed and produced by Paladone.com was kindly sent to me & packed in my suitcase ready to be put to good use at the other end of our journey to beautiful Portugal.
It’s a bit like a selfie stick. But far more discreet & far easier to slip into your handbag (or in my case, beach bag!) It’s a specially designed wide angled lense that clips on to your smartphone – back or front facing camera.
It comes packaged in a nicely designed box showing before and after shots, and inside is the clip, a lens cap and a storage bag. Basically, when you open it up? You’re ready to go.
On showing it to my Mr, he was keen to give it a go too. This was ideal as I have an iPhone 6 Plus whilst he has a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. So here, you’re getting two reviews for the price of one…!
I was immediately taken with this little gadget because when it comes to taking selfies, whether for a family shot, group shot or even couple shot, someone else always has to do it for me because my arms just aren’t long enough. Not good when you want control over which picture gets to be kept…!
So. The first pictures are from the Samsung. Standard shots without, and then with the lense. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you which is which.
Ultimately it’s a little disappointing. But on further investigation it’s because the lense on the Samsung is pretty blimmin awesome anyway. The selfie clip lense kind of gets in the way of what is essentially an amazing camera. In a nutshell. You don’t need it. If it ain’t broken, don’t try and fix it!
The iPhone 6 Plus however… take a look…
I think you’ll agree it does an incredible job. It gives me far more scope. It gets us all in when I want to take those ever special family shots to keep in the memory box. And finally …I CAN TAKE THE PICTURE! At last!
I loved it that much that I just HAD to get down to the beach to take some more!
What I also like about it is that you can even use it when you have a case on your phone – which let’s be honest, most of us do. So there’s no faffing at all when you want to use it. Just whip it out, pop it on and off you go. I’ve included a picture to show you how it looks on the phone.
The clip can be bought from iwantoneofthose.com for just £6.99! It’s a steal!
You can also check out Paladone on Twitter too. They’re super lovely people. I’d also like to thank them for giving me the chance to review this awesome little gadget. It’s certainly going to be a staple in my bag when I go out from now on. Because you never know when you might need to take a super selfie shot…
Thanks for reading…
