The world’s best value action camera

from TechRadar

Better than a GoPro? Not technically, but it's a close call – and there's no doubting that this 4K/60fps-capable and stupidly easy to use action cam is unbeatable value.

Powerful, and so simple to use

from Android Central

The GoPro is the default choice for action cameras but having tried out the Yi 4K+ I'm not entirely sure why that is. This is a very well put together piece of equipment with great specs, a nice companion app for your phone and a price that's not ridiculous.

An incredible deal

from Expert Reviews

For a long time, the market for action cameras has been dominated by GoPro, but that might be about to change. The unassumingly named Yi 4K+ is a stunning new action camera from a relatively unknown company and it not only matches the best GoPro has to offer on quality, but trumps it on price, too.

Best sports actions camera

from Make Use Of

The ability to record 4K 60fps at half the price of its GoPro Hero 6 equivalent, the Yi4K+ is great value for money. It's doesn't record telemetry, but the ability to use an external mic is a fantastic addition.

Fantastic image quality

from TrustedReviews

A great action camera for capturing your adventures but its lack of built-in waterproofing holds it back in the face of the GoPro Hero 5 Black. It’s also not quite as amazing value once you factor in the optional waterproof casing and other accessories.

Excellent features for the price

from Photography Blog

In terms of operation speeds, most of the time the YI 4K+ is quick and easy to use. However, when you’re shooting stills in raw format, there is a very long shot-to-shot time of around 15 seconds, which can be extremely frustrating if you want to take photos in relatively quick succession.
