Do it for the 'gram at a discount with AUKEY's $8 smartphone lens kit

The two-year phone cycle can leave you feeling left out, and that's doubly true for anyone waiting even longer. I'm still rocking an iPhone X, and while I love it, I'm often envious of Google Pixel 3 or bleeding-edge iPhone users that have stunning cameras, which make mine look like a potato in comparison. If that sounds familiar, maybe you just need to change your perspective.

Amazon is offering the AUKEY Ora Smartphone Lens Kit for only $8 when you apply coupon code JWUL6MT9 during checkout. That's a match of the best price we've shared for it. Typically you'd have to pay about $20 to get your hands on it. Be sure to use your Amazon Prime membership or sign up for a free 30-day trial to get free shipping. Otherwise, you can spend $25 and get complimentary shipping as well.

If you don't have a fancy phone camera, or you just want to get serious about your smartphone photography, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better kit than this for less money than you'll pay today. Just be sure to enter the code to get the low price.

This lens kit is widely compatible with smartphones and various types of cases. A case is included with the kit itself, but most users will just use the included clip to affix the lens to their smartphone. You'll get a wide-angle lens with a 110-degree field of view to help you better capture things like landscapes, cityscapes, group shots, and those sweet aerial shots you take whenever you get a window seat on the plane.

The detachable soft rubber clip is easy to adjust, and the lens itself is made of aluminum alloy and coated glass to avoid strange reflections and other visual detractors in the photos you take. You can even use the lens with your laptop's webcam if you desire. AUKEY includes a 24-month warranty with your purchase.
