Review: Accessories from Three Mobile

Some of you may know that I upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Three a few months ago. Okay, more than a few months ago, it was June 2013! I'd still been using my iPhone 4 up until recently; whilst occasionly making use of the Samsung's superior camera I just couldn't bring myself to switch my SIM over. So, when Three contacted me recently asking if I'd like to review some accessories I thought it'd be a great opportunity to bling up my Samsung and convince myself to start using it on a permanent basis. I was given a few options and chose this pink glittery case, which was gifted to me by Three, along with some photographic lenses (a fisheye lens and 2-in-1 macro and wide angle lens). Gotta be honest, I'm not great with new technology these days and I didn't even know what fisheye meant...

That's literally all you have to do! There are instructions although they seem to have been translated quite poorly into English, but they're accurate enough to get the gist of what to do.

These were taken with the Samsung using the corresponding lenses, no other editing has been done (asides from resizing). I think the wide angle and possibly the fisheye lens also will be great for attending events and really capturing the atmosphere; I often find myself having to squeeze people/things in and/or take multiple photos!


 





















I'm looking forward to experimenting more with the lenses and hopefully getting some better photos for the blog whilst I'm at it. I've also recently bought a tripod for my compact camera; as much as I love 'selfies' they're not really great for outfit shots! ...oh, the case! The case is sturdy, fits really well and just clips on without feeling like it's going to fall off; I love that it's glittery but it's 'smooth' and protected so it won't wear off. Fab, basically!
