My thoughts

Clear night videos due to the Sony Starvis IMX307 sensor.

Built-in eMMC dashcam from DDPai like the Mini3. Great to prevent people from getting lousy or imitation micro SD cards to use.

If the Mix3 is using a super capacitor instead of a lithium battery will be good for use in hot countries.

Transferring out the videos is simple. Just plug the Mix3 into a computer and Windows will recognize it like an external storage drive.

The Mix3’s G sensor (mid-level sensitivity) is almost as accurate as the Thinkware F200 I’m using in my car. First time seeing this from a dashcam from China.

    looks a lot like Xiaomi MiJia Dashcam….. 😉 Does this one perform better than MiJia?

      Same form factor as the Mijia dashcam. The night videos seems better than the Mijia dashcam.
