GoPro is the undisputed king of the action camera. However, like all other undisputed kings, we hardly ever ask “why?”. Sometimes, all it takes is a little friendly competition to bring up some flaws in the system. In this case, the YI 4K Action Camera is the competition and it’s here to topple the king.
ACTION CAMERA UNDERDOG YI TECHNOLOGY BEATS GOPRO WITH SIMPLE FEATURE
Don’t worry, we’re going to dive into the detailed specs in just a moment but first, a word. In a day where almost everything has a touchscreen, why on Earth doesn’t GoPro have one? Forget touchscreen, it doesn’t even have a screen at all. Sure, it’s an action camera and its users might not be focused on a perfect picture. However, it seems like an easy enough feature to include. Hence, we have the YI 4K Action camera stealing the show on this one. Not only does it have a touchscreen, but it’s a great one at that.
GET MORE ACTION WITH YOUR ACTION CAMERA: YI TECHNOLOGY VS. GOPRO BATTERY
For the adventure seekers out there, you know that electricity is limited in the wilderness. Hence, it helps to have an action camera that lasts longer on a single charge. You’re far too busy doing gainers off of a waterfall to worry about battery life. Which is why it’s strange that GoPro’s battery is so poor. Perhaps this is all a ploy for users to purchase the extra battery back for $40 more. Did they hire Apple’s marketing guy or something? Meanwhile, the YI Technology lasts a full two hours with an LCD to boot.
YI TECHNOLOGY IS BETTER THAN GOPRO
Simply put the Action Camera is a superior camera. It has more features, longer battery life, and nearly identical video quality. Furthermore, it’s significantly cheaper than the competition. Yet again, this just goes to show that the most popular is not always the best.
