Magni-viewer/£21.99 inc VAT
The Magni-Viewer is a portable magnifier for smartphones, effectively doubling the size of a very small screen. When folded up, the Magni-viewer is around the size of a book and has plenty of room to fit whichever model of phone you might use, even with a third-party case on it. Portability is the big advantage of the Magni-Viewer, and it’s ideal if you often happen to find yourself in places where your phone is your only device for watching video. There’s also a panel in the side that allows you to access the phone to plug in headphones, but the main downside is that there’s no way to access video controls once your phone is in the Magni-view, unless you remove the phone again.
