Peztio FHD Dash Cam Review: Design
The dashcam doesn’t look like much but the design is simple, looks like an old school digital camera and the compact size doesn’t hinder the driver’s view. It isn’t as durable as we’d like but the fact that it can take more than a spill is impressive.
On the front of the Peztio FHD dual dashcam, the lens protrudes from the unit, next to the lens is an LED light. Which works only when the dashcam is turned on. An “On” button on the left side of the dashcam. On the back of the dashcam, there is a 4 inch IPS touch screen.
The interface of the Peztio FHD dual dash cam is simple to understand and navigate through. The touch screen works smoothly, we experienced no problems with that. It won’t take much of your brain cells to figure out the options on the screen. There is a button for recording, brightness, a home option and so on.
Peztio FHD Dash Cam: Video Quality
Being a cheaper dash cam, there wasn’t too much we were expecting from the Peztio FHD, but it came through! The dashcam comes with WDR technology! The front camera has a wide-angle view of 170 degrees, while the rear camera has a view of 130 degrees. And full HD 1080p display, for both cameras. (720p, 480p optional)
During our test run, the quality of the footage was excellent. Due to the mount, the video footage wasn’t shaky and things like license plates, street signs were all crystal clear. For our Peztio FHD dash cam review, we decided to go for the rear window. The video quality was great, no problems with contrast or distinct color issues.
The night vision view for both cameras was a stunner, the objects weren’t merging with the dark and were distinguishable. License plates were visible and if anything were to go down at night, the Peztio FHD will be sure to catch it.
Now coming to the rear camera, there is two option as to how the dashcam can be installed. The first option is to attach it to your rear window with the adhesive strip (provided in the package) or to attach it above your license plate.
On both cameras, the footage was smooth, the colors were fine but the exposure was an issue.
Peztio FHD Dash Cam: Features
This dashcam costs little and provides a lot! For a dashcam that falls under the $100 tag, it’s fantastic. Being the few waterproof dash cams that we have come across. Before we get into what all it offers.
Let’s see what arrives in the box:
- Front dashcam
- Rearview camera
- Rear connect cable
- Car charge
- Suction cup mount
- User manual
- 12-month warranty
- Professional after-sale service within 24 hours
Now for the features, the 4 inch IPS touchscreen is an absolute joy to use. The touch screen has no lag, seamless usage, makes it easier for the driver to use and the interface is simply delightful.
Next up is the wide viewing angle of 170 degrees for the front camera and 130 degrees for the rear camera. Most dash cams don’t even offer 130 degrees for the front dash cam, so this is one hell of a feature Peztio has set up. And there were no concerns regarding fish eye. The dashcam has no visual blind spot.
The video quality was great for both the front and back camera. The night vision was well above what you’d get from other dash cams under $100.
The Peztio FHD dash cam also comes with motion detection, and a 24-hour Parking mode, which automatically begins to record when the sensors pick up movement around the car. (When you’ve left your car to park).The audio feature of the dashcam was a miss since it sounded all muffled. We would recommend disabling the audio feature since it doesn’t have any use.
The main feature of the dashcam is the fact that it’s waterproof! Peztio claims the dashcam could take a major dip and make it out without a hitch. Accidents can happen, especially if you have kids to deal with. We think this a superb feature and yes it’s no scam. Though we don’t think it’s a good idea to use it for your summer pool vlogs.
The dashcam also has an inbuilt GPS that cheap priced usually aren’t supposed to have.
The Peztio FHD dash cam also has loop recording, meaning it’ll replace the oldest file with newest when memory runs out. And smart gravity sensor lock. Which locks footage in case of an accident or close collision.
The battery is chargeable too, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in at times.
The Price, Is it Worth It?
The Peztio FHD 1080p dashcam or H12 is most definitely worth it. Available for $60, it’s one of the best dash cams we’ve reviewed. It’s simple to use and to install, there are no major complaints and compared to other expensive dashcams. This one fares much better. You will have to buy a high endurance micro SD card but that’s not that big of a deal.
Overall, yes, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly dual-channel dashcam, it is worth it!
The Peztio FHD dash cam was a winner in our books and has been a strong contender. The wide viewing angle, the waterproof body, the WDR technology, it has got everything you’d expect a high-end dash cam to have. Not to mention that inbuilt GPS which is a rarity even inexpensive dash cams.
The dashcam also comes with a 12-month warranty, clearly stating that Peztio is confident with its devices. It’s a budget-friendly, dual-channel dash cam with a heavy set of features. The audio recording feature was the only downside the dash cam has to offer.
All in all, the Peztio FHD 1080p gets a 4 out of 5 stars!
- Inbuilt GPS
- 1 Year warranty
- Touch screen
- Micro SD card not included
- Subpar video recording
- The low quality rear camera
