    Disclosure: Vantrue sent me a sample of the X2. I bought my A119 outright.

    Jump to 0:56 if you want to skip to video samples.


    Viofo has:
    -Sharper/more detailed video
    -More discreet form factor
    -Super capacitor reliability

    Vantrue has:
    -Better colour and exposure
    -Less lens distortion
    -Sorts videos/stills into date folders

    Viofo is on the left and Vantrue is on the right throughout the video.

    Side by side stills:

    Bitrate (1440p 30fps WDR):
    Vantrue: approx 18,000 - 22,000 kb/s
    Viofo: approx 20,000 - 28,000 kb/s

    A119 has a larger Fov than vantrue. That's why A119 has more distortion than vantrue. Any cam has large FOV will has distortion.

    Vantrue X2 claims to have 170° FOV while the Viofo has 160°. From my testing they are not much different.

    I would not be surprised if there is software based distortion correction being applied and that is why the A119 is sharper.

    Incidentally I just realized that one of the stills is off-timed and it makes the Viofo look far wider than Vantrue. I'll fix it in the morning.

    That's the one - there's no Street Storm equivalent this time as this X2 is supposed to be the Ambarella A12 now, I just had a nosey and Street Storm haven't put any firmwares out since July last year, not sure if they're still active?

    Not sure, I know a couple of suppliers that they deal with but not really that familiar with their business

    That's not my experience with Vantrue X2 which I returned within a week (I also have the A119):
    - Blurry
    - Night picture terrible
    - Freezes..
    Unless the X2 I got was defective...


    The N2 is not much better from what some reviewers showed, and said they prefer the N1 to the N2 which has a sharper/better picture than the newer one.
