Default Nexus 4 zoom lens?

Lets face it, the N4 doesn't have the best phone camera in the world, and its not helped by when you want to zoom in (as its digital zoom).

I've looked around on Google, but am yet to find one that's specificaly for the N4, or is compatible with it..
It would be a great add on accessory for all those amutar photographers who are on a bone crushing tight budget.

So if anyone has a zoom lens that's compatible with the N4 or is specifically for the N4 please let me know, thanks.

The universal phone lenses found on eBay etc will work fine. They come with an adhesive metal ring which you stick around your camera lens, the attachable lenses are magnetic and attach to the metal ring

You can try one of these. This one says its for the note 2 but its universal. I have one like it but mine is a fisheye/wide angle lens and it works pretty good.

Edit: I guess I missed Michealtbh response. Same thing though.

Photojojo. Look them up. I have their Fish eye lens, for 31$. I plan on getting the wide and macro lens, and i believe theres a zoom lens on their too. It's attached to your phone by a magnetic ring, and what's good about these rings, are that you don't have to glue them on. There's a stick adhesive on one side of the ring, which in the future if you don't want, you can remove easily. Good people at photojojo. If you want to order from them, give me a heads up and i can give you a 5$ off code which will make it 26. (:
