Gopro Hero review and compare

The GoPro Hero isn’t the camera for power users, and current Hero Black-series owners may find it difficult to integrate Hero footage with those from the more advanced siblings, but first-time action camera buyers and casual users will find a lot to love.

You'll need to buy accessories such as a waterproof housing. Though YI used Gorilla Glass, the touchscreen is not shatterproof. The microSD card slot is a little hard to access. Parts of the English app are still in Chinese.

The camera is permanently in its polycarbonate housing; the battery is built-in; it doesn't have GoPro's port for adding a touchscreen or extra battery pack or Wi-Fi; very limited shooting options.
