Not as good as expected, what a shame.
July 5, 2019
The GoPro 7 Black I purchased is useful but not the level of of quality I expect from GoPro.
Great video, super pictures and works great with phone app. Does everything as advertised, and does it well.
Unit gets hot, hangs up and or shuts down. When I say hot I mean very hot. Poor battery life <25minutes, I was experiencing hang ups and the unit would not respond at all. So I had to pull battery. That thing was smoking hot.
The battery that shipped with unit will not take a charge. Didn’t see that coming.
Turned off GPS, And everything else I could find, reduced picture quality , FPS and even lessened screen intensity and still gets hot and shuts down. OiVey!
Thank goodness I have a GoPro 6Black to back me up. I used its battery to power up the 7.
At the end of the day, I really don’t recommend GoPro 7 Black until they get the energy and or heat issues resolved. What could be a great product is poorly realized.
