The YI Lite is the perfect sidekick for anyone that loves to capture the best of life. Don’t be fooled by its compact design, we’ve still been able to integrate a 2.0” LCD touchscreen, build it with a Sony Exmor Image Sensor and include the very latest Hi3556 chipset, to give up to 130mins recording time in 1080p/60fps. The integrated 2.0” LCD touchscreen gives you intuitive control over the cameras settings, and with 320x240 resolution you can clearly view your footage while recording. Advanced connectivity capabilities gives you seamless connection to your smartphone so you can upload your footage straight to your favorite social media platform. Fish eye effect(lens distortion) is optional, and you can switch it on/off in the in-camera menu to fit your shooting demand.

One thing I wanted to note about my first-time experience in buying an sub-brand action camera is that I was surprised how much rebranding of the same generic product that is going on in the market. Much like many 'smart watches' on the market, these cameras are the same components and housing with different brands and packaging. Whats even worse is that some of the cameras (or so I read) don't actually take the MP rating they state, but instead (due to their sensor hardware) they take a lesser number of physical pixels, and their software chops those into finer resolution... so it technically is the higher pixel rating, but from a lower resolution photo. Now that's sneaky... and nothing I want.
The Yi Lite isn't even a sub-brand camera. It's from Xiaomi, a top-tier Chinese electronics manufacturer. It's just lesser known by mainstream consumers (like me). I am so thankful and appreciative of man online reviewers (here on Amazon, through blogs, and through YouTube) for giving me the information I needed to make a smart choice in an action camera. For just under $100, there is nothing else out there on the market that comes even close to delivering the quality and value that this camera does. Super happy customer on this end.
My only gripe with this camera is somewhat minor (see update of 9/28/17 below, as this was corrected in a firmware update) - the optional date and time display is located in a distracting location on the video. This is the worst location I have seen in any action camera from China to date. As shown in Photo #3 (Yi Lite), the date and time display is located at somewhat of a high location on the right, making it somewhat of a distraction. Photo #2 shows the 4K+ display in 2 rows (also used in the original Yi). This is not bad, but it is still a potentially noticeable distraction to the viewer. The best location I have seen is in Photo #1 used by both Eken and Gitup - small fonts in a single row on the bottom right-hand corner. I would strongly suggest Xiaomi to simply move the display down to this location so that the it is less of a distraction to the viewer. I use this display when I am filming travel documentaries. I sincerely hope that Xiaomi reads this review and will address these issues in a future firmware update.
In conclusion, the Yi Lite design has the foundation to be a winner and is technically a clear upgrade over the original Yi in my initial test ). I will do more "torture" testing later and provide an update to this review.
Update 7/28/17 - I conducted a low light torture test at a local karaoke pub comparing this camera to the original Yi. From first impressions, it appeared that at 1080 60P, the original Yi was superior, as shown on the attached video. However, the sound quality went to the new Yi Lite. Overall, this test only indicated that both cameras had their strengths and weaknesses with no clear overall winner (see update of 9/28/17, as the low light issues were addressed).
Update 9/15/17 - Thankfully, Yi Technologies cam through on the "unofficial" firmware (as to not yet being available on their website as of this review) firmware and relocated the date and time stamp to the bottom right corner of the screen (see Photo #4). Furthermore, they re-formatted the date to read by month-date-year (commonly used in the US). Great job, guys! I hope this same change will be done to the other Yi models, as well. However, I noticed in this firmware update that they also incorporated a non-switchable auto low light adjustment that lowers frame rates to accommodate low light. This is fine, but I have suggested in an email to Yi Technologies that this should be a switchable menu option (similar to that in the original Yi ). Sometimes, these abrupt change of frame rates while filming may be abrupt, especially when the lighting conditions are not very dim (i.e. indoor room light). In certain filming situations, I would much rather increase the iso speed in the camera and deal with the potential added noise than suddenly change frame rates back and forth (see update of 9/28/17, as Yi Technologies added the switchable auto low light function in the menu options).
Update 9/28/17 - I've got to hand it to the reps at Yi Technology (Mr. Adam Ding) for addressing all of my review comments and suggestions on their Yi Lite action camera. Since its release back in early July this year, they have relocated the optional date and time display to a better location on the screen (bottom right corner), reformatted the date to display month-date-year (typically used in the US) instead of year-month-date (typically used in Asia), and added a switchable auto low light setting in the menu options. All of these firmware improvements have made this camera one of the biggest bargains in the action camera industry. Way to go, guys! You just went from a 4-star to a 5-star rating in my review thanks to your super responsiveness to address noted issues. Highly recommended!
1. Good value; price
2. Decent sound
3. Decent angle
1. Quality is not consistent - I see pixelation (maybe problem with compression?)
2. Backlight flickers (picture becomes light for a split second)
3. Weird artifacts in video (I've used the same memory card on other cameras without these artifacts)
