Here's a really simple mod that will turn your phone into a pretty neat microscope for just a few bucks.

While Crabfu, the modder in the video, uses an iPhone, this mod should work on any smartphone with a forward facing camera and an available hard plastic case. The mod itself is really easy involving a cheap microscope purchased on Amazon, few drops of super glue, and some plastic wrap, but check out the gallery for the impressive results.
