Android Endoscope aka Broscope or whatever the names are, the function and cost is obvious from the name – cheap China stuff which looks like medical grade endoscopes, can be put inside holes or corners difficult to look with normal eyes, risky to use costly DSLR, mobile camera etc. What Features to Look to Buy a Good China Android Endoscope? Buying China thing never easy! Most of these devices has own external batteries, you must be careful about that part.
