What customers say about "Size & Weight"
YI 4K+
  • The size is astonishing - it is tiny and would easily fit in your pocket - i have seen bigger key fobs.
  • In summary better performance than you know who, perfect size in case and saves a bit of money.
  • Easy to setup. Suprised me by how small it actually is. Housing is amazing seems to be well made.
  • I am a normal user and never got interesting about recording and taking photos. But as soon as i bought this camera, i realize how much you can do with such a small device.
  • Size is very convinient to hold and make a good photo. Also waterproof and good design.

What customers say about "Display"
YI 4K+
  • The touch screen is easy to negotiate and very sensitive, with good sized targets for clumsy fingers like mine.
  • The easy to use screen and menu plus the EIS with 4k video was my main reason for upgrading.
  • Great image quality. Very easy to use menu and touch screen. Clear photos.
  • As far as I know this is the best action camera available right now, both in image quality and in ease of use (battery, screen, controls, etc). I'm super pleased.
  • Superb screen with decent viewing angles. Large, bright and easy to use.

What customers say about "Video"
GoPro Hero5 Black Action Camera
  • The video was crisp and clear, the new generation of this GoPro is getting better.
  • Takes fantastic slow motion video. Image stabilization works very well in canceling small vibrations out.
YI 4K+
  • It as a wide range of video modes and a excellent 4k 60fps video mode.
  • I thought about getting the normal 4k or even a much cheaper action camera. I bought this mainly because of the 60fps at 4k.
  • Video quality great with great saturation in its colours. Highly recommend.
  • The video quality is reasonable and acceptable for online publishing.
  • Not bad for its price. Image and video quality is standard but nothing special.

What customers say about "Features"
YI 4K+
  • People complain about having to use a housing for the water proofing but remember this is a 40m dive housing. It doesn't bother me taking the 10seconds to place it in there.
  • The housing mode allows easy switch between shooting modes while still seeing the screen and using it under water.
  • So, build quality is very good. It doesn't feel like one of the cheaper action camera's at all. It comes with waterproof case.
  • The product already comes with a fully closed case, which makes it easy to use as soon as possible.
  • Waterpoof case is so good for me, i very like to swimm with camera. So happy!
