Expert reviews, camera specs and features of the Yi 4K+ Plus action camera.

Summary

A super camera that packs a punch in both hardware and software. It records at 4K at 60fps, which is only the 2nd action camera to do this, after the GoPro 6. Has a great touch screen and records some lovely photos and video footage in sharp detail.

It is let down by a couple of small build problems but nothing too serious. The fact that its less than half price of a GoPro 6 also makes this a super camera to think about getting.
