GoPro Hero 7 OR Yi 4K: Action camera comparison

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Looking for the best GoPro alternative? I test out two cheap GoPro competitors, the Yi 4K+ Action Camera and the Akaso EK7000 Pro and compare them to the GoPro Hero 7 Black.

See what image quality is like underwater to find out if these cameras are as waterproof as they say. I’ll also show you what the HyperSmooth image stabilization looks like, what accessories you get, and how long the batteries last on these budget action camera alternatives. But if you really want the best GoPro, should you wait for the GoPro Hero 8, or get the Hero 7 Black, Hero 7 Silver or the White edition instead?

Thanks for the video.
Please compare Osmo Action with Go Pro Hero 7.

Brian Willaman says:

I picked out the GoPro in the very first video, the pretty plain image video. Quality, hands down beats the other two. Instantly.


This is the best action camera comparison there is on youtube that only Lexy Savvides can make possible. Thank you for all the hard work you do for us.

lesson is you get what you pay for in this instance

Gravage Hulk says:

I think the stabilization would be the sticking point for me. An action cam with shaky footage is pretty less than ideal.

DojiDude says:

No Low Light test??? Great review otherwise.

Perhaps DJI should have been a contender

2:29 Stay young at heart and the world would see you that way. IS NOT TRUE. That is exactly how I feel too no matter how much I try to blend in with the young peeps.They don't see me young, they see me as an eccentric adult. LOL

As much as Yi looks like a good cheaper alternative I think it really depends on how much you use a action cameras. I need them maybe 3-4 times year which means I can rent a GoPro and its still cheap than buying one. If I would be using it more than 5-6 times a year, I would probably consider spending on a GoPro than Yi just so that I can be sure it would last me for 2-3 years without a doubt. Being said that I am also considering buying an older GoPro version like GoPro Hero4 maybe.

Also my friend uses a SJCAM and its actually quite better quite decent almost like Yi but cheaper.

Excited about fitness tracker comparison. Mi Band 4 is so popular now a day.s

Daniel Cook says:

But what about the Dji Action Cam? GoPro vs Dji?

Frank Hu says:

DJI osmo action is only 349dollars unless you hate a Chinese company 🙂

iAdden says:

Do the same for 4K cameras

Would love to see a comparison of the GoPro and the DJI Osmo Action. Very similarly priced.
