      I have the Silver 3+ and decided to upgrade. 4K, Wireless uploading and other options aren't necessary for me so I went with this camera to save some money. BIG MISTAKE. This camera's batteries are SO small, they die very quickly! You MUST buy additional spare batteries to continue filming. Screen stays on for min 1 minute before Power Save kicks in. I have the wireless remote to control my Silver 3+ when it's on my chest mount or helmet. IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL on this camera. If it does, I have not figured it out yet. please leave me a comment. I know it has limited image sizes and FPS, so not reviewing that. It's small and lightweight but you still have to put it in a case in order to mount it, which makes it as big and heavy as the older cameras. all in all, just spend the extra $100 for the newest camera.

      My beloved GoPro Session 5 died from last trip then I found by surprise, GoPro doesn't make Session any more. I chose Hero as an alternative and I am glad I got Hero instead. Session surely has a great form factor being smaller. But Hero offers almost same feature as Session such as voice control. Plus, Hero actually has a screen with a touch control. Using action cams for last 5 years, I almost forgot that camera can actually come with screen I can review and control. I also like the quality of the screen as well. For personal use, I don't think I need 4K. So, for the price under $200, I think this is a great deal and can't go wrong with what it offers.

      I have a Hero 5 session GoPro of my own and I love it, so I knew this would also be a great camera, and I was right!! The touch screen that shows the video being recorded is really helpful to see how your film will come out. Navigating the screen to watch your videos or view your pictures is very easy to use. I wish the sound quality was as good as the Hero 5 session, but its still a pretty nice camera. The best pictures I've taken have been on a GoPro, and the photo quality is amazing. I also suggest buying GoPro's "The Handler" if you are purchasing this product. The Handler is the best grip I've used for my GoPro, and it makes filming much easier. I love this brand for action cameras and intend on staying with them.

      We purchased this for a cruise we went on in August, where we would be doing a lot of snorkeling. This GoPro was the best thing we could have brought with us, next to sun screen!! The picture quality was amazing, as was the sound quality! So simple and easy to use! The size made it perfect for traveling, and we had so much fun looking back at the pictures and videos each night! The battery does get used quickly, but we brought 2 spares and a charger with us which was great! The camera is light weight too, making it easy to swim around while holding it! Definitely gave us some of the best picture and video memories to look back on!

      I own a few other GoPro’s..With That being said..I love the image quality! And all it’s features..However the battery life is just awful and disappointing,even after reading the reviews about the battery life I went ahead and bought it,knowing that there was a chance I would be lucky enough to not have any issues with it..But I went kayaking and the battery was gone in less than 5 minutes !...I was shocked !...I love the cam but I wonder if the battery that came with it ...it’s just junk,that way you need to buy another one.i will try my luck buying yet another battery....I’d still recommend getting it..just be aware of the battery issues..

      I purchased this for my trip to Disney World and Playa Del Carmen. Video and controls were good for an entry level GoPro, but I had 2 major issues. First, sometimes it would say low battery when it had more than 80% charge in the battery. I would either have to keep restarting or plug it into the charger to fix the issue. Second, sometimes it wouldn't even turn on when I pressed the record button. It is currently on Fireware 1.0, so I'd wait till some firmware updates before purchasing this new Hero. I'll be returning mine to Best Buy.

      Easy to use, but, I had to upgrade firmware following easy go pro support site to be able to connect via wireless to other devices.. This assigned camera name and password. Unfortunate that no windows gopro editing software without windows 10. Using windows movie maker is adequate. Connects well with android phone and ipad and laptop. Great quality but often have to reduce to 1080 or 720 to edit on movie maker. Overall fun to use.

      I love my new GoPro. However, I do not understand why the previous Hero had 4k and this one does not. Nonetheless, it is a quality product and GoPro has a complete line of accessories to ensure you can take this little guy with you wherever you go. While I do not plan on using it underwater, it is good to know that rain will not be an issue when I'm out on my bike. One thing, though. The GoPro box and website were very unclear as to which MicroSD cards were compatible with the Hero 2018. Both the Best Buy employee and I spent around 20 minutes online looking for an answer.
