About a couple of months ago I got an Olloclip from a really good friend to write a review but I wanted to do something different instead of the normal review. I’ve talked with people and read quite a few blog post reviews on how you have to sacrifice your screen protectors to use a Olloclip Lens System. I even saw how it will shatter your tempered glass screen protector. So I tried to do a slow stretch with my Olloclip to fit over the tempered glass screen protector I have on my iPhone. I started with a crescent wrench and no dice. It was really tight and just didn’t work.
Next I tried using a paper towel and did a slow stretch by folding the paper towel each week. After a couple of months of slow stretching the plastic clip, the only things they did was knock the little plastic piece to hold the Olloclip in place on your iPhone and chipped my screen protector. I just don’t understand the appeal of their lens system. I feel in the past this system worked at the time because there wasn’t a lot out there and everyone complain about the magnet ring lens system. Now it’s time Olloclip made a better mobile lens system that does make you sacrifice the protection of your iPhone. Again I feel you also pay a lot of money to replacing plastic because the glass quality is the same. You’re not getting Zeiss glass lenses. What gets me most is the clips went up in price. It’s get quite expensive to replacing a whole new system when a newly design iPhone comes out. I wanted to add that the people at Olloclip bank on the fact you will through away your money every two years to buy their products and laugh their way to the bank. They refuse to do any type loyalty program for sustaining customers or any type of recycle programs like some companies are starting to adopt or promote. In the end you have to ask yourself is it worth spending a few hundred dollars to replace plastic clips and a cheaply made case for your iPhones. Especially when they are better lens systems that don’t make sacrifice your iPhone to take a few great photos. If this blog post has struck a nerve and you totally disagree with me…then I’ve done my job. Have a nice day and see you soon !!!
