Should I buy a new GoPro competitor called the Yi Action Camera?

Summary: Xiaomi's Yi Action Camera, initially available only in China, is now being offered in the US through Amazon since 12/3/15. Thanks to promising specs and a low price point the Yi garnered a lot of interest at launch, and will no doubt interest shoppers who consider a GoPro too expensive. However, the $99.95 US list price isn't quite as cheap as we'd initially estimated.

The Yi Action Camera in many ways resembles GoPro's own action cameras, something that isn't surprising given Xiaomi's history of finding 'inspiration' in existing products. What lies beneath the surface, however, seems to offer some advantages over GoPro's most basic models, including the ability to record 1080p at 60fps via a 16MP Sony Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor. Likewise, the camera features a 64GB storage capacity. 

The camera itself is waterproof to a depth of 40 meters, but isn't offered with the accessories that one typically requires of an action camera. Likely in order to cater to its market, Xiaomi’s offering a 'Travel Edition' bundle that includes a selfie stick mount with the camera.
