Xiaomi Yi 4K Action Camera 2 Contrast With Gopro Hero 4 Black Review

Xiaomi Yi generation 2 released recently, this Xiaomi Yi 4K Action Camera 2 have two version: CN Edition & International Edition, CN version can't be fully used outside China mainland, the operating UI and APP are Chinese, while the International version is English, no limitation. From the performance, this camera's competing products is clearly Gopro Hero 4 black, both are highest performance sports camera currently on the market, who is superior?

Xiaomi Yi 4K Action Camera 2 vs Gopro Hero 4 Black 

Look: Xiaomi Yi 4K Action Camera More Stylish

In appearance, since Xiaoyi 4K sports camera just listed, so it looks more fashionable than Gopro Hero 4 black in design. Whole body just a power button, the back is a 2.19-inch LCD retina touch screen, it may be because Hero 4 don't equipped a screen, So lighter 7g than xiaoyi 4K sports camera in weight, it weighs 88 grams (including battery), Xiaoyi 4K weighs 95g (with battery). 


About the dimensions, Xiaoyi 4K motion camera (42 * 65 * 21mm)  a little larger than Gopro Hero 4 black (42 * 59 * 21mm), it looks more elegant. Hero4 black don't have screen, but it supports an external LCD screen, but the size is smaller, the resolution is not so high. 


Configuration: Better than Gopro Hero 4 Black

Xiaoyi 4K camera and Hero4 Black are equipped with a F2.8 ultra wide-angle lens, depending on the resolution of the video recording, users can achieve a variety of viewing angles. The use of the processor and the sensor on, xiaoyi are using the latest version of Ambarella A9S75 processor and Sony IMX377 12MP 1 / 2.3 "sensor, better than Gopro Hero 4 Black. 


GoPro Battery life has been a headache, we look at the official data, in the recording mode, Hero4 Black can record 1 hour 15 minutes of 30fps 4K video. If you turn on the Wi-Fi and a remote control app, then only 50 minutes. In 720p / 120fps, and closed Wi-Fi, Hero4 Black could insist 1 hour and 50 minutes.

Xiaomi Yi 4K Sports Camera uses a rechargeable 4.4V 1400mAh high-voltage high-density lithium polymer battery, standby up to 8 hours. Even at 4K / 30fps video mode, also can shooting up to 120 minutes. In battery duration, Xiaomi Yi 4K also superior to Gopro Hero4 Black. 


For contrast effect, Hero 4 connect an external screen, after comparison found a big difference between the two camera's resolutions; since Hero 4 there is no competing products before, so can not see the difference, but contrast with Yi 4K camera, Hero4's grainy immediately apparent. Have to admit, Yi 4K motion of the camera screen resolution and sensitivity superior to Hero 4 Black. 


Dynamic Test Experience: Xiaomi Yi 4K Camera 2 Is Actually Better!

The test results really surprising, because Gopro has been the industry's "unicorn", their product reputation has been quite high, just the price is slightly higher, but consumers are willing to buy it. But from comparison test, Yi 4K camera test results effect actually better than Hero 4, can achieve such results I think the hardware is a must excellent.

First, in terms of image stabilization, Yi 4K camera added electronic image stabilization technology, there are also delay image stabilization, so the following video we can see the Hero 4 picture jitter is significantly higher than Yi 4K action camera 2.

Comare with Gopro Hero 4
In picture quality, both can shoot 4K pictures, but Yi 4K Camera 2 actually more colorful than the Hero 4, which in addition to more hardware, but also a little relationship with the algorithm. As consumers, they only care about which one can shooting better picture, as to what kind of algorithm, I think only Yi 4K Action Camera engineers can give a more precise answer. 


Finally, let's take a look standby time comparison that onsumers are more concerned, considering the size of the memory card, recording mode with loop recording, the results Yi Action Camera 2 standby time is 1 hour 57 minutes, and Hero 4 is 50 minutes. Have to say, Yi Action Camera 2 defeated Gopro again.

Conclusion

YI 4K camera in appearance more stylish than Hero 4, the hardware configuration is also higher than Hero 4. In software, 9 kinds of shooting modes is also more abundant than Hero 4, picture quality, image stabilization and standby time also stronger than Hero 4. If the reliability and stability of Yi 4K Camera can stand the test, Gopro's leader position of action camera market will be under threat.
