    Got one of these but its not as practical as you might like!

    It has 12X zoom which is really nice but the phone keeps sliding out of it and it does not line up properly. Oneplus One is long when you make it tight it presses on Power and Volume buttons..

    Now I am looking for a good tripod mount. I think I am going for the AZ360VR since it holds the phone and its been built for Oneplus One:

    Here are the samples:

    I had to rest the phone pretty much on the desk!

    Its useful for long range shots such as wild life that digital zoom makes the photos grainy. Sometimes you can't get close to the subject either because its dangerous or you don't want to scare it away :p

    By the time you want to set it up the subject is gone already!

    It's because of crappy fixing in my opinion.

    The phone is too thin i think those work for thicker phones like iPhone 4, 4S perfectly and that's what they use to advertise it. Maybe a bulky case will work with it!

    I have similar (if not the same) lens. The main problem with fixing - 2 parts are moving, so it's difficult to place phone there. It's crappy and shoddy. Also, lens themself are also not good quality, picture is fuzzy and blured at the edges.
