Coming up to reviews, I did not have the opportunity to review but I would like to share a review from LinusTechTips (credits to reviewer). I’ve written some anecdotes from his review below, so feel free to refer to it.
A good yes, it’s the best 4K capable camera you can get. It’s a good Action Camera that is not named GoPro. The price is also it’s biggest attraction, making it the most affordable Action Camera. Another is the extended battery life, nobody would imagine it would reach near 2 hours on 4K video recording. And finally, all I’ve heard about the new Xiaomi Yi 2 are praises from reviewers. So, it gets good recommendation.
