    I really like Xiaomi Yi footage. Not to gray and dull like GoPro Hero 3 (1st from left), but not as overdone with contrast and saturation as SJcam SJ5000 Plus (2nd from left) too. Xiaomi Yi (3rd from left) is just right in the middle for natural colors and look! Mobius just for comparison (4th from left).
