This thread goes into an extreme amount of detail to illustrate the difference:

Judging by that, I'd say this is a steal in comparison. Quality difference is negligible but of course, we're comparing an $80 device (with no accessories like GoPRO provides) with a $320 one. If you're looking for a cheap option, the Xiaomi Yi is more than feasible. GoPRO has a better build but again, that price difference is massive.

Thanks, bought one - look like a pretty good deal. Perfect for me, not ready to commit to a gopro (yet).

No. The size is slightly different between xiaomi yi and go pro. They have just started releasing the accessories for the Yi.

The link you have is Yi vs. GoPro Hero, which is $130 on Amazon (and it doesn't need extra waterproof casing), and the $140 starter bundle's even better. Still more expensive than Yi but a far cry than the $320 you quoted of GoPro. But Hero is also better rated on Amazon, fits other GoPro accessories, and based on the review having better image stability.

After watching this review Xiaomi Yi Action Camera Review and sample footage?: https://youtu.be/bRcXBulsbfU I've decided that image stabilization is required for my application (mountain biking), image stabilization is required for a lot of outdoor activities so unless you plan on using this inside the home or able to keep it from shaking, get the gopro.

GoPros do not have image stabilization.

also it doesn't help very much if the motion is extreme (like mountain biking)

except that review is comparing the GoPro Hero which is only $130 (not even double the price)

I'm seriously considering this, as my wife is going on a dive trip soon, and we don't have an underwater video camera. At this price, it's 1/5th the cost of a Hero 4 Black, and I think the image quality difference will be negligible.
