YI 4K Action Camera review

 

GoPro might be the undisputed leader in the action cam market, but its cameras are not without weaknesses. The greatest of those at the moment is age: GoPro's top Hero4 Black camera was released nearly two years ago.

You'll need to buy accessories such as a waterproof housing. Though YI used Gorilla Glass, the touchscreen is not shatterproof. The microSD card slot is a little hard to access. Parts of the English app are still in Chinese.

An action cam with a lot of features, excellent video quality and a more affordable price, the YI 4K is undeniably a good deal.
