Brando Generic Mobile Phone Telescope

Updated on November 1, 2007

In order to report on the Generic Mobile Phone Telephone from Brando, there are a few facts that will serve as a caveat emptor for this particular product. Despite the fact that the Mobile Phone Telescope is labeled as “generic”, it does not work on all cellular phones.

However, this fact should not be held against it, and I highly recommend that you keep reading, for the Generic Mobile Phone Telescope does work, and work well. The problem is, it will not work on a phone that is a slider or clamshell (flip phone). However, if the camera lens on your cellphone is on one side, and the viewing screen is on the other, there is a good chance that the Generic Mobile Phone Telescope will work for you.

The reason of this incompatibility is the plastic frame that is used to mount the 7x18 lens onto the cellphone. It works with some clips that do a good job of holding on and adjusting to certain mobile phones, but will not line up or fit on phones that flip or slide to take pictures.

In other words, unless your phone is a candybar model (no sliding or flipping necessary to take a picture) the Generic Mobile Phone Telescope from Brando will not work. However, if you have one, it is a good deal at $22 from Brando.

As you know, most cell phone cameras have a problems with their pictures. Subjects taken by cell phone cameras tend to end up looking as if they are far away when taken, resulting in a far-sighted effect. The Generic Mobile Phone Telescope can eliminate this problem, and can do shots from far away.

There are phones that have been tested to work with the Brando Generic Mobile Phone Telescope. If you have one of these types, the Brando Generic Mobile Phone Telescope is a sound investment.
