With Huawei P30 Pro leading the way in smartphone photography by producing amazing wide angle shots, amazing clear zoom photos and bright night photo shots, who needs an additional lens? Personally, I believe it is a matter of time these lenses become obsolete. Until then, it is a must have lens for those into mobile photography.
Personally, my first choice will be a Case + Lens system, this enables you to remove and mount the lens quickly, the clip system allows you to use your own casing but it requires 5 or 10 seconds of adjustment. In the world of photography, 1 second wasted is simply too long. Below are some comparisons.
