The GoPro HERO 4 still aces in the comparison but in some aspects like in low light conditions, the Yi Camera appears to be better than the HERO 3. For the price of under RM300, the Yi Camera is seriously bang for the buck. If you’re looking for an action camera on a budget, just to try things out, you can’t go wrong with the Yi Camera. The only challenge is getting one officially in our local market.
