Xiaomi Yi 4K by Linus Tech Tips Youtube review

Description: Another Chinese-wanna-be-GoPro action camera is in the market. If you think that a copy won’t look better, well, you need to see the footage result and battery life. Xiaomi Yi 4K+ might be a copy of GoPro Hero 4, however, it delivers pretty good footage. Whether it’s in the daylight or low-light condition, the videos and images looks vivid and balanced. The in-built microphone is also good in recording your voice, which is very clear even though the background noise is very loud and noisy. In terms of battery life, the Yi also lasts longer than the GoPro.
