Yi dashcam vs Mijia dashcam



The Mijia dashcam looks clearer in the video but the video is darker. The Yi dashcam can see more details in darker areas (Hopefully Mi can fix this in a future firmware?)

XIAOMI YI Action Cam and YI Dash cam is two different thing.
(Albeit the two share the same manufacturer plant)

This is misleading with the consumer

Cannot compare action cam with dashcam... Both for different functions... Also different hardware...

It's more like a startup for the China market...

Xiaoyi is a division of Xiaomi. How is it not an official Xiaomi product?

Please advice...

Come brother I don't need you to spoonfeed me. I can do the research by myself to find out the actual facts. I think you might want to do some research on how the name of xiaoyi came about from xiaomi.

Xiaoyi is the R&D arm of Xiaomi to develop the Yi technology products.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiaomi

Yi action cam is also from xioayi... Please see xiaoyi website as the yi action cam is listed in their product range... So does that means it's not original from xiaomi also?

By the way, perhaps you want to read the Chinese explanation again to understand better. My advise is don't use Google translate cause it doesn't give the correct meaning.

There's no settings from left or right hand drive... You can see the settings screenshot in the first post.

That's the ADAS function... Not that accurate yet... Maybe the later firmware updates will fix it...
