Macro Lens Attachment for EVO 4G

For all you budding EVO 4G owning photographers out there, don’t you wish HTC included a macro setting on the EVO’s camera? Well fret not, as there are macro lens attachments available that produce quality shots and at a good price too.

XDA forum members started up a discussion thread to find a good performing macro lens, at a reasonable price, and they found one!

At the bargain price of USD10, the lens attaches to your EVO via a choice of magnetic rings that fit comfortably around the lens, ensuring there is no chance of scratching when laying your device flat against a table.

Members have reported that the quality of the camera increases drastically – and not just for the macro shots.  An example of such an improved shot is that in the thumbnail (courtesy of XDA forum member ricoo25).

Concerns expressed regarding any negative magnetic effects on the device components including permanent distortion of the compass have been unfounded as yet with several hours use, although it doesn’t appear that anyone has tested the compass whilst using the lens attachment.

In fact, reports from members state that the magnetic attachment can be shaken off if you were to move your device in any sudden motion.

For examples of more photographs and to find out where to buy the USD10 macro lens attachment, visit the discussion thread.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
