Olloclip 4-in-1 photo lens for Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5

The 4-in-1 lens system includes wide-angle and fish-eye lenses that can be removed to uncover 10x and 15x macro lenses for close-ups.

Wide-angle lens

The Olloclip's wide-angle lens nearly doubles the field of view of the Galaxy S4.

Macro comparison

While the Galaxy S4 can focus pretty close to your subject, there's no doubt the Olloclip's lenses let you get even closer.

Just flip it

Unlike the iPhone version, the lenses are on the same side. You just flip the bracket from one corner to the other to change lenses.
