Final thoughts
Could this be the new king of the beast from Korea? I certainly think so.

Loving the new remote Live View function from the Thinkware Cloud 2.0 Beta. This feature is coming to Q800 Pro in the next update. 

The 4K image quality might not be one of the best but choosing Thinkware is more for their overall features than just image quality alone.

I missed the “Knight Rider” security LED from the F800 Pro & Q800 Pro.
