Nextbase has been a popular brand when it comes to single-channel, full-featured premium dash cams. This UK-based company launched models such as the 322GW, 422GW, 522GW, and its 4K entry, the 622GW. Aside from the resolution, what people find cool about these dash cams is the tech – the Alexa voice controls for example. Some may think that its convenience features can make up for the fact that these nifty, expensive dash cams are made of lithium-ion batteries, and not supercapacitors, one example of cut corners.
And there’s VIOFO - not as high-end as Nextbase, but also popular for good reasons. This China-based company has been around since 2011, and the long list of dash cam models they have launched have been crowd favorites not only for the features, but also for durability and affordability.
In this article, we will take a look at two dash cams under the 2K segment from Nextbase and VIOFO, the 522GW and the A119 Mini 2 respectively. Let’s see which among these two models are more worth the positive reviews, and the penny.
