I don't have a long time on this camera yet, but so far I do like it more than my GoPro Hero-2.
The Hero-2 has been not so reliable in the past. It's just stopped recording unexpectedly, recorded OK then records black (nothing).
Not super reliable at all.
Not a big difference in video quality between the two cameras. I think the Akaso has a slight edge there. ( The GoPro is an older model. I expect newer models would be better.)
The Akaso does not have provision for external mike. It is easier to turn on, and start/stop recording than the GoPro. ( I have to power up the remote back-pack, then the remote, and camera on the GoPro.)
The Akaso can be mounted to my chin bar on helmet, and turned on/off, and start recording directly from it's mounting place. It has back screen (touch screen) that allows me to see what the camera is seeing. Makes alignment much easier. That alone wins it for my style of recording.
I'm going to modify the weather case to allow me to plug in bike power directly. (Save camera battery power) That way I can keep camera on while I ride. Turn recording on / off as desired.
The Akaso is going to be better for my type of recording.
At $100.00 it is much easier on my pocketbook. There are other features, on the Akaso, I've not explored yet.
