Engadget Review

The Hero 7 might not come with a host of new shooting modes or imaging improvements, but it does come with a few key tweaks that make it exciting to new and old users alike. The upgrade in stability alone will save hours of potential memories from the trash can. SuperPhoto makes the GoPro a more robust choice for stills, and the addition of live streaming is a plus for everyone.

We’d always love to see significant bumps in the battery life, but given the Hero 7 launches at the same price as the Hero 6, it basically means the best GoPro just got better without impacting your pocket. Upgraders might want to consider if there’s enough new here for you, but for everyone else, the Hero 7 improves on an already winning formula.
