Now Coming to the performance of the Camera .

Performance and Image Quality of the Xiaomi Yi camera .

Starting with Connectivity :- 
Xiaomi Yi camera comes with A universal jack which means this camera can be directly mounted with many devices and a selfie stick as well .
Coming to the back there are three ports :- 
  • Sd card port 
  • Mini usb 
  • Micro HDMI port 
The port panel of the camera is well built and also it takes much less place which is a good thing . The ports on the back can be covered by a cover provided with the camera which is a good thing and also keeps the design cool .
Coming to the battery of Yi Action Camera

xioami yi camera comes with a 1010 Mah battery which is seriously more then enough for such a small camera. 

As the camera doesn’t have any Flash light so the battery will last long easily for 5-6 days of continuous usage . The one thing which disappoints me is the battery gets Hot when we Record videos from the action camera . When rootupdate asked about this Heating issue from the xiaomi developers they sad ” This is just a software Bug and will be fixed in the next firmware update ”  . So all we can do is wait untill the next firmware arrives .

Under water Photography And Selfie Stick compatibility :-

A Camera Doesnt comes under a pro camera untill it has the ability to capture Under water photographs . 

Xiaomi yi action camera is not waterproof resistance at Defualt but Xiaomi has made a ultra water proof fiber plastic cover which Locks the camera and doesnt let even a single drop to Enter inside the camera which makes the Camera a water-photography enabled camera , The camera can take photos upto 40 m depth in the sea . 

Coming to the selfie stick ,The camera has a Universal jack which can be mounted with many devices and also a selfie stick .

Now Comes the main thing “ PHOTO QUALITY OF YI CAMERA ” 

Xiaomi yi action camera comes with A 16 Mega pixel camera , It uses a Amberalla A7LS processor . 

Not only in the camera but xiaomi also uses the very best camera’s Even in their smartphones also . 

The image quality of the camera is undoubtedly the best in the price range it comes , However Yi action camera needs some time to understand it is not like other cameras which are easy to use . The small camera doesnt have its own screen if you want to view photos before capturing then you ll need a Smartphone to sync the camera over wifi . 

We captured some photos From the camera and here is the example :-

While capturing the photos you will see a little bit of roundness in the photographs which can be Removed by disabling the image rectification option in the app .

Now Comes pairing the camera with The Smartphone :-
