VIOFO A139 Pro 4K UHD vs. VIOFO T130 3-Channel Dash Cam Review

Driving a ride-sharing vehicle, managing a fleet, or just want all-around protection for your vehicle? Having a three-channel dash cam is a must. If you are looking for high-quality, but budget-friendly options, we recommend you to choose a VIOFO.

Under its triple-channel dash cam models, VIOFO offers the T130 and the all-new A139 Pro. Simultaneously monitoring the front, inside and rear of the car, VIOFO T130 3-channel dash camera uses advanced Sony & Omnivision sensors in 2K front and Full HD for its rear and IR cameras.

On the other hand, the all-new A139 Pro is the successor of the previous 3-channel A139. While the T130 only captures 2K in front, the all-new A139 Pro carries an 8MP IMX678 that records in 4K UHD. More importantly, the A139 Pro is the industry’s first dash cam to use the revolutionary Sony STARVIS 2 image technology.

Wondering which suits your needs best? We’ll help you narrow down your options through this comparison review of the all-new VIOFO A139 Pro, and the VIOFO T130 triple-channel dash cam.

VIOFO A139 Pro vs. VIOFO T130 Design

With the newer A139 Pro 3-channel dash cam, VIOFO kept the design discreet by adding no screen - just like the VIOFO T130 and other premium dash cams like the BlackVue DR970X. Although it has no screen, the VIOFO A139 Pro’s front camera can be rotated vertically up to 300 degrees.

With this, you can easily switch the front lens to the cabin if you like to record your trips, want to include travel videos in your vlogs, or have a carpool karaoke with your families and friends! Moreover, all dash cams - front, rear, and interior - are built separately.

In the T130’s case, the interior camera is built into the main unit. While having one less camera means fewer cables and wires to deal with, the tradeoff is that there will be limited placement options. For instance, you won’t be able to install the dash cam directly behind the rearview mirror as that might get in the way of the interior IR camera.

Do note that the T130’s front camera can be rotated up to 100 degrees and the rear camera up to 25 degrees vertically. If you are ever stopped by cops, traffic enforcers, or strangers who want to approach you from the driver's side, you can also swivel the interior camera side to side to capture interactions out of the driver's side window, giving you more security.

VIOFO A139 Pro vs. VIOFO T130 Video Recording Capabilities

In this segment, we are confident that the new A139 Pro wins. Why? Because it is the first dash cam to use the latest 8MP Sony STARVIS 2 IMX 678 technology.

The A139 Pro 3-Channel also supports up to 4K UHD 2160P / 1600P @ 30 frames per second for its front at 140-degrees, and Full HD for its rear and interior, both with a 170-degree field of view.

On the other hand, the T130 also provides high-quality recordings as it uses a 5MP Sony STARVIS IMX335 in 2K QHD at 30FPS for the front, 2MP Sony STARVIS IMX307 for the rear, and 1080p Full HD for the in-cabin camera. Good quality, but not as sharp and clear as the new Sony STARVIS 2 in the A139 Pro.

Moreover, while it has the same 140-degree field of view with the A139 Pro for the front, the T130’s rear and interior cameras only cover 165-degrees for both.

VIOFO A139 Pro vs. VIOFO T130 Built-in Connectivity Features

Aside from the built-in Bluetooth, the A139 Pro 3-channel is equipped with dual-band 2.4Ghz and
