Quelima SQ13 Mini Review: Lowest price on Car DVR for $10

Over the past two years, I’ve written quite a few reviews of various DVRs – as a rule, these were quite expensive devices. Often they told me “well, it’s expensive, I’ll take a similar one, but Chinese will be 5 times cheaper and with free delivery.”

I tried on a couple of occasions to press the buttons on the Chinese notices, I was disappointed and put them back in the box – “the feelings are not right”.

But as it turned out, the Chinese devices are different. The main hero of today’s review was Quelima SQ13 Mini – a budget device from a notorious company, which I could not pass by.

The new camera was Quelima SQ13 Mini, however, this time it is positioned exactly as a car DVR.

The device was announced in 2018, I had it right at the beginning, but because of the broken machine, I held it out to the last.

The theater begins with a hanger, and the review of a new device begins with a study of the technical specifications. This time something like this:

What I immediately liked this model, so it’s its simplicity. The color of the front panel of Quelima SQ13 Mini in our analisis is either black and red colors.

In front there is a large bulging eye of the camera with a slightly recessed glass, below is the “point” of the microphone.

On the left side, there is a microSD card slot, to the right – a micro USB connector for power supply and a reset-hole.

Above and below are decorative grids, behind the top, there is a speaker, and next to it – a groove for fastening.

Mounting is quite tight, even more, difficult to remove the camera from the bracket – one hand cannot cope.

Also, there are 2 buttons below it: recording an indelible fragment, regular recording, gallery files and settings/shutdown. Well, two-point LEDs.

The quality of production in general, no complaints, according to design – too, although it is unclear why they made such dust-collecting sieves.

The official website says that this is for ventilation, but there was not enough fan – what was the problem of making a device like the others without critical overheating?

The Quelima SQ13 Mini DVR has a built-in 300mAh lithium polymer battery – this is enough for a working without the screen for a long time.

Quelima SQ13 Mini: Inclusion and Features

When you turn on the camera Quelima SQ13 Mini for the first time, it shows the QR code that should be scanned by the smartphone – right after that the application page opens in the AppStore (well, or on Google Play).

The name of the first version of the application consisted of hieroglyphs and it would have been difficult to find without a QR code, but at the time of publication of the article, an update came out, in which the name changed to Quelima.

The Sports DV application from the action camera Quelima is not expected to be expected, although something tells me that it was possible to dispense with a single application on both cameras.

In the application, everything was crammed-not only the necessary control of the camera settings and file browsing, but also an unnecessary section with the network view (broken down by the branches of the YouTube box) + the store (in which you can buy other devices and accessories).

The device turns on almost instantly, while the screen displays the picture itself, the indicators of the batteries, the date, time, and recently the status of the microphone. Also, at least one indicator (status) is lit, the second one lights up when the built-in battery is charged.

The right button under the screen opens the door to the settings, which are very, very few – you can not turn off the indicator, turn off the annoying menu or incomprehensible Chinese phrases in the female language. All options are cyclically switched on the settings screen, without failing to other screens.

A few more settings are available in the mobile application (however they are not available if you do not use them): a time stamp and logo on the record, the name of the Wi-Fi network and the password.

Quelima SQ13 Mini: Shooting Quality

Honestly, I do not really care what kind of processor is inside, what size is the pixel on the matrix, etc. – To me, the main thing is that the result should be good.

Therefore, I will not squeeze out the paragraph about the processor, it’s positioning in the model range, etc. – let it be your homework.

Quelima SQ13 Mini in the test can write video of two sizes – FullHD (1920 × 1080) and HD (1280 x 720), and the first is written with a frequency of 30 frames per second.

The difference in the quality of the details of the picture between 2 and 3 modes is practically nonexistent, except that 2 is smoother. But at the same time, there is not very realistic transfer speed – the feeling that it is accelerated.

Simply speaking, I do not see any sense in writing HD-quality, so I stopped on the FullHD at 30 fps version.

Color rendition of Quelima SQ13 Mini in the analisis is good, the picture is saturated. Backlight, light drops when leaving the tunnel – then everything is fine too.

Geometry is noticeably distorted (corner right up to 155°) along the edges of the frame, the picture seems slightly blurry – you can forget about “I need to see numbers”.

But in general, the quality of the record is more than worthy, both in the daytime and at night. The sound is not bad, although the engine’s performance is heard better than we would like.
