Love this and thank you app scope from the bottom of my heart.FUN AND USEFUL

Kool works perfect i can see the fine print. Much easier to use than a microscope
Rated 2 out of 5 by kiffy Not As. expected
I do archival work. thought I would be able to use this item for occasionally reading very very small print. It requires the item be very close to the lens in order to focus clearly and then brings in only a narrow area to view. That narrow area is greatly magnified but the angle is too narrow to replace even a small magnifying glass. It is more helpful for viewing small items like rings or parts of necklesses for clarity, repair or cleaning. But I already have something for that. Had I known I would not have purchased it. It is a good idea but could be improved by giving at least one a wider angle and greater distance clarity. In presenting it QVC might let viewers know about the shortcoming above.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrspiano Great fun with Science!!
After reading reviews that told how to make a good fit, my family has had a blast with these microscopes. I even bought a second set so each of my grandchildren has one. We've looked at skin, bugs, our tongues, rocks, and all sorts of things. Best for adults was to explore the five-dollar bill. Also great for splinters and bug bites. So interesting and all of us, ages 3-77, preschool to engineers have enjoyed them. Put on phone or tablet over camera and maximize camera. Fun to take pictures of what you see.
Rated 2 out of 5 by rami At First I Thought It Was Blurry Photos
This may not have been too bad if it hadn't gotten some sort of difficult to remove sticky substance all over my lens. Also, had trouble stabilizing microscope effect in order to photograph anything. Sent it back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4oclocks Very Cool For Any Camera Smart Phone
I bought 2 of these microscopes that fit any smart phones camera. Easy to use and takes perfect up n close pictures as a microscope. Great for precious stones like diamonds or coins. I couldn't believe the clear quality of anything I took pictures of. It fits on top of the camera with easy to take any close up micro pictures. Clear as a bell. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for up and close clear jewery or coins n minerals.

I have these and love them. Great to help see a splinter you're trying to get out! Other than that, just a lot of fun!
I have a thin case on my iPhone so no problems for me. The other 4 people in my family do not and hence only 4 stars. A simple fix....a screw and bolt assembly that easily increases and decreases the spacing to get over different phones. Couldn't cost that much more!

I also have a Note 5 phone, someone else posted having same phone. Yes I had to take off the case. But mine fit good on phone. It works great. My kids then put them on their iPads. Still work good.
