Okay, so you have watched hours and hours of videos on YouTube about the Yi 4k. It has a very tempting price point and so worth a look, right?
But the thing is you already have a GoPro Hero3+. Should you upgrade?
The no bullshit answer is NO! Sure, the price is very tempting but a GoPro Hero3+, or newer, is going to get the job done.
However, if you have an older action camera, are upgrading anyway, or are planning to get a second (or third) action cam, the Yi 4k is the way to go.
Because it has a longer battery life. The Yi 4k has replaced my old GoPro Hero3+ as my main helmet cam because it is a simple matter of battery life. My GoPro would maybe give me an hour. I have multiple batteries but it is annoying to be on a ride and stop to change batteries so often… and then what happens when you don’t have more than one charged battery?
It is $199 on Amazon and is worth it. Having two cameras will be good for multiple angles for your videos.
***Notice I am speaking of the Yi 4k and not the Yi 4k+. The 4k+ is obviously better, but it is in the GoPro price range. If you are in that price range, then spend the $350-400 on a GoPro Hero5 and be satisfied with the quality and unsatified with the battery life. But if you are price conscious, like me, the Yi 4k is definitely a good buy!
