Was looking at reviews of Dashcams and this one seems to be well reviewed with great features. You can find a review at carcamcentral.com/gui…017 which rates it as the 2nd best dashcam to buy on a budget.

The night lens is very well rated. It is also wifi enabled. Also has an assist to make sure you don't get too close to cars or out of lane (the feature is meant to be so-so)

  • Full-HD Video--Smart Dash Camera supports 1920*1080p at 60fps,2304*1296p ultra high definition at 30fps, offers a bright,clear and sharp image even at high speed
  • Wide viewing and night vision--Uses a 165 degree wide angle all glass lens,which monitors 3 lanes comfortable. Industry leading F1.8 aperture and 3.0mx3.0m high sensitivity image sensors guarantee excellent night vision, clear captured a vivid images with an accurate color even without auxiliary lighting
  • Motion Detection and G-sensor--The dash cam was designed to capture fast moving scenes,recording exciting moments and accurate collision recording. G-sensor technology automatically save footage in the emergency events

Good price, I have this and the quality is really good and the app is very nice.

Comparing to the AUKEY dash that's been posted the past couple of days it's definitely better, plus you get full 60 fps compared to 30 fps with the AUKEY.

At standard prices I'd go with the AUKEY as this isn't £40 better.

I actually ordered the Aukey earlier today but cancelled that and bought this as the difference in price was only £4.26 and this one does have better reviews and features.

There are great in terms of features and reasonably reliable

The downside is they're super-noticeable in your car (being white and tripod-mounted you may-as-well write "CAMERA TO STEAL" on your sunstrip! )
If you're not worried about that (and I think the days of dashcam thefts are gone given they're so cheap) - not a problem (some say, the white means it doesn't get cooked in summer)

Also - you run the risk of the app demanding your first-born child as a permission - but that's common to every Wifi/Dashcam which uses one ;0

I have had a YI for half a year now - excellent in my opinion, mine is all in Chinese - but uses a grapic interface so no problems
Reviews mainly seem to originate in Fairytale land:

Looks big, no black model, not discreet enough but good features & support. Must try harder YI.

Thanks for letting me know and something to hear in mind though the comparison site I linked to was the main reason for buying rather than Amazon reviews. Although the high reviews did help with my own confirmation bias

Fortunately with a product like this you can see the results for yourself on YouTube.

As an owner, this is worthy of it's rating.

Not sure I like the look of that site either, seemed interesting at first, I put in some other products and it's suggesting some reviewers are fake because the reviewer has reviewed everything positively. People that have reviewed like 3 or 4 items in total over long periods of time and all random products, not all Chinese stuff (ie. most likely to be fake) but they just think they're all fake.

I've never purchased anything off Amazon that I wouldn't have given 4 or 5 stars but according to that site, that makes me a fake reviewer.

Further it seems to mark anyone doesn't publicly show their name and has 1 review as fake. Some sample size.

But I do like how they look at reviewed items in common with other reviewers, that's a big sign of reviews for free products.

My current cheap dashcam does but I don't know with this one. Hopefully will find out soon when mine arrives
I bought this during the lightning deal. Good features and video quality but don't like the grey colour as its very eye catching and not comfortable leaving it in the car over night. Prefer in black.

It lets you choose the timeout period, when it times out, it displays the date and time but haven't figure out to turn off the display completely yet. You can set more options connecting it to your phone, only just figured out how to get rid of the YI logo in the corner today
i ordered the aukey one, i want this one now lol.

its for the rear of my wifes car, might wrap the front in black vinyl to hide it
You can always set the brightness to lowest too

It's suction cup mounted as are most dashcams. It's grey not white - but even then you could always stick some black tape over it.

Cheers op, ordered at promo price, BTW it's shipped from outside the UK Amazon live chat informed me!
This is a very good dashcam! ....and this is a Fab price.

Ordered. Intrigued to see if the video quality is better than my £40 Aldi dashcam, which I bought chiefly for the three year guarantee. I worry that dashcams can fail *just* out of warranty when left inside a hot car in summer.
If you leave it in the car over night and somebody hits or something like that..It will start recording??
Might sound like a stupid question, but can I use this as security camera and leave it inside my bedroom window to capture the front of my house? thanks

It doesn't have motion sensors? So it doesn't activate when the car is stationary and hit by an object? That's pretty standard on dash cams nowadays.
Just had a look at the reviews. The combination of Chinese names and/or bad English makes me confident that most of the reviews are fake. Shame.

The title includes the words "dash cam with G-SENSOR".

I'm saying it makes zero sense as a security camera... it uses rolling footage and will record only at the press of a button, or via the G-sensor (on a stationary wall I'd sugggest 0.0G). So, unless he's going to hang out of his window, wait for a burglar and press the button on the camera that it is fairly useless.
Confirmed you can switch off the screen, it's in options and the led will flash when it's recording

before I have hid mine inside a small toy with the stuffing removed - much less obvious. you can also take the camara apart if you are that way inclined and extend the wires to the lens so you can hide the actual camara, all not worth it in my opinion as I don't think people actualy want to steal them?

try this
I have this dashcam. It is made by Xiaomi and is an excellent bit of kit. I got mine from Deal Xtreme for about £37 but it has a chinese menu (the amazon one might be English). Anyway it's easy to convert to English. The only downside for me was the permanent mount so I got the suction mount from Geekbuying for £2.19 geekbuying.com/ite…tml

I also 'hardwired' it into the fuse panel with this hgvdirect.co.uk/das…tml
got mine today, doesnt look too bad not sure how it compares to my mobius at the moment (its for my wifes car) i love the mobius because its so small and discreet. once you download the app and connect via its wifi on the camera thats quite a cool feature. will install it at the weekend, will either put it in my car and give the missus the mobius one as i have darker rear windows so it hides better. im going to vinyl wrap the front of mine if i keep it to hide it a bit more
Got mine today. Just my luck that it's a micro USB plug whereas my current one is a mini, so I've got to swap over the cable I've tucked behind the interior trim. Oh well. Impressed with it so far. WiFi connectivity for this price?!?!

I've stuck mine to the back of the rear view mirror with some 3M Command Strips. My last cam held in place ok with those, rather than using a "lick and stick" mount.

Can't decide if it's best to have higher resolution or higher FPS. At least the app makes it easy to change settings.
