There is a really simple way to get better pictures from your smartphone. All you need is a piece of fabric.

A simple, super quick tip, but one that will help you get much better pictures from the camera on your beloved smartphone.

People often complain smartphones deliver pictures that are a little soft, or just seem to lack crisp colours they'd expect elsewhere. The one big thing you can do to help is to give the camera lens a wipe before you take a picture.

Real cameras come with lens covers for a reason — getting smudges and smears on a lens instantly reduces image quality. A quick wipe with any cloth you have handy, or preferably a microfibre cloth like you'd use for glasses, and your smartphone will absolutely take a better picture.

Real cameras still rule, but that's no reason not to get the best picture you can when you do use your smartphone.
