Videos
Front cam video is recorded in 2560Γ—1440 25fps with an overall bit rate of 10.6 Mb/s.













Rear cam video is recorded in 1280Γ—720 30fps with an overall bit rate of 6,991 kb/s.














Final thoughts
This X2 Pro’s front cam image quality is quite clear and sharp at an overall bit rate of 10.6 Mb/s but I wish DDPai would use a 1080p camera for the rear camera instead of a 720p camera.

At first, I did go through with this DDpai X2 Pro as recommended by one of the car accessories shops at my area. Selling price at RM980 including of 32GB memory card and installation. I decide not to go for it with several reasons.

1) They selling Chinese Version. The box is with the chinese word. The device is speaking mandarin (ding ding pai). I don't like it as it looks like very Chinese. Cannot set the language to English.
2) Look bulky overall a big pcs of big rectangle device.
3) Not sure about the reliability. As we buy dash cam for it's reliable and of course video clarity. Don't later end up like device shut down or memory card damage after a while. We don't hope that the important video unable to capture when it is needed.

My review 1 years old d... X2 Pro is old model d... Now got newer models d laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Not all DDPai models is made for international market... Some is only for China market hence in Chinese but can still use the English app to setup with no problems.

Actually the X2 Pro is not that bulky. Almost same size as Thinkware F800 Pro.

Now DDpai is slowly moving towards using capacitor as last time their older models using batteries can't handle heat well. Like the Mini3 is very good with good video quality.

Since today not many works to do, I just simply peep on your past review. X2 Pro is still using battery? I don't really trust car accessories shop ppl as they always promote the dash that they sell, and for sure with a good margin. RM980 is not cheap too for China stuff. The only advantage I see on X2 pro is it has built-in GPS and with additional snapshot button. rclxms.gif

I got write X2 Pro using supercapacitor ler...

DDPai is consider an ok brand for dashcams from China... Usually buy direct from Taobao or Aliexpress is cheaper... Local sellers need to earn, etc... So expected markup price... Most will say for the warranty, etc...

No choice sometime have to let them earn as I do not know how to DIY instalation through the fuse box. tongue.gif
I stay in small town, so not expect the shop understand well about the dash cam. Not like in KL or big city most accessories shop have experience. Have to self research.
