So what's the difference between this and the Hero5?

Comments say that the Yi 4K+ is cheaper and better.

Hero 6 has 4k 60fps (just like the yi 4k+) which the 5 doesnt.
Comparing to the yi 4k+. There is a video on youtube that shows the electronic stabilization on the hero6 is better than the 4k+'s. The hero is also waterproof whereas you'll need a case for the yi. Not sure if Yi still has advantage on battery life. Personally, I'd go with the Yi just cause of the price difference.

Watch this: https://youtu.be/lCqucEK0QPA

Basically the image stabilization is better on the GoPro and it's water proof. It also uses a newer codec so it consumes less space in the card.

GoPro 6 is a 4k 60fps 30m waterproof version of the GoPro 5 with software upgrades like an incredible image stabilization. The visual quality is comparable to the Yi 4k+ (which is half the price). GoPro 6 due to being waterproof results in shitty muffled audio due to itself being sealed up. U need to buy a separate $40 audio adapter. The Yi 4k+ has a great camera like the GoPro 6 but they cut corners elsewhere to save money like a shitty image stabilization, poor quality back view screen, poor audio, casing itself and low battery life. GoPro 5 is an attractive choice with Black Friday discount if you don't need 4k at 60fps. Yi 4k+ is the best budget alternative if all you care about is visuals. Sony FDR x3000 should also be looked at.

It's really up to what you want to spend.
$250 Yi 4k+
$350 GoPro 5
$400 Sony FDR x3000
$450 GoPro 6
