It's not side-by-side in one video as that doesn't really make sense due to low resolution when combined so here are videos at the same time/place from these two dashcams.
Both cameras are from @GearBest.

File names have date time.
Starts recording around 15 secs faster than Mini 0805p.

Mini 0805p Specs: Capacitor and has Mstar MSC8328P chipset and Ominivision OV4689 CMOS image sensor. 1296P super HD resolution, built-in GPS module, can remark time stamp.

FOV of 0805p seems less than A119 ?
In daytime, A119 is better. :)
How about nightime ?

if in red circle, there was a crime happening. So what dashcam will be better ? :)
Everything that matters from a dash cam perspective is either fuzzy or blown out. Hypothetically if there was a crime taking place on that sidewalk, one would catch a blurred image at best.

What I don't get is why a company would even bother with something that produces inferior video quality than their previous models. That's the one and only thing the Mini series had going for it.

I think i can answer that question. This model was designed for running 24/7. So it have to run at low capacity, less heat...means resolution is not good as other models.
And if we consider dashcam for recording events , not for recording registration plate, then 0805p has done well the job.

The A119 is a strong competitor which can make many cams look bad in comparison, but there's no excuse for the 0805 doing so poorly at night. Even a crappy cam can show car positions and traffic signals; details are what make the difference- especially seeing number plates at night. Mini has widely missed the target with the 0805 :(
