Best Alternative to the GoPro Hero 5?

A better alternative i think to the popular GoPro Hero 4 or 5. The Xiaomi Yi 2, is a worthy successor to the old Xiaomi Yi and comes with some robust upgrades like OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), 4K Video Mode and a high quality SonyIMX377 CMOS Sensor. Not only is it cheaper, but also holds an advantage compared to the more pricey GoPro.

What is good about it:

  • Less expensive than the current generation GoPro Cameras available
  • Offers very good image Quality, via the 12 MP SonyIMX377 CMOS BSI Sensor)
  • Battery last up to 1 hour and 49 minutes (even better than most GoPro’s available)
  • 6 Axis Optical Image Stabilization is available (not in any GoPro Cameras)
  • Touch Screen LCD Display
  • Good Quality Dual Microphone
  • Also comes with a lot of accessories

What is not?

  • OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) only works on 1080p and below, not in 4K
  • Plastic construction
