I have been using this GoPro Hero 2018 since November 2018, it is still working great. I took it with me to cruises a few times over the years and it took beautiful and vivid video. The microphone is also great, it picked up voices and sounds clearly without distortion. The only negative is the rechargeable battery. It is getting shorter battery life after a few years of use and I can’t find a replacement battery. Even I can find a replacement, the replacement most likely has been sitting on the shelf for a few years now since GoPro discontinued it after 2019. It is hard to retire this durable GoPro action camera due to non-supportive accessory.
Non pensavo che dopo varie recensioni negative sempre ridillo stesso difetto, questo venditore continuasse a inviare il prodotto con la batteria che non si ricarica!
Forse ha un lotto di GoPro Hero 2018 tutte difettose?
Eppure è segnalato come Amazon Seller!
Non so se la ricomprerò qui

2 years back I bought a GoPro Session. I didn’t like it for a bunch of reasons (no touch screen, no mobile app to sync photos/videos, terrible editing software, issues transferring photos/videos off the camera, no removable battery, hard to add music, confusing super tiny interface for changing settings etc.) And it was $399! So definitely wasn’t happy with the experience and didn’t buy another GoPro. So then I see GoPro release this new $199 camera, GoPro 2018 and decide to give it a chance. And wow was I pleasantly surprised!! All the things that sucked in that original GoPro Session have been fixed and they even added voice commands that work really smoothly. It’s literally like the exact opposite experience! So anyways, I’m not sure if the best option is to buy this one instead of their top of the line GoPro Hero 6 for $200 more but I do know that I am super happy with my purchase and loving the experience. Oh and I signed up for their GoPro Plus $4.99 a month service thing, that has been very useful. Oh and that auto video creating option as the files automatically transfer to the cloud when I plug it in is so cool. I just bought the 32 gb memory stick and that basic selfie/tripod stick thing to start. Ok you get the picture, I would DEFINITELY recommend buying a GoPro!
Update: 4/28/18 – ok thought I would update my review since I’ve now had it for more than 3 weeks.
So far everything is working out great! no changes to my review and I will update my review after say another month of using it.
Update: 5/19/18 – have had it for about 2 months now and going good. I like to use the 1440 setting instead of the 1080 for video recording, both come out really nice but the 1440 is just so good. It takes up more space on the memory card but well worth it. The only I might do differently is buy a 64 gb card instead of the 32 gb. I might also buy an extra battery. The thing I like so much about this thing is how insanely portable and rugged it yet the video and picture quality is so awesome. In terms of accessories, I’m still good with the basic tripod, it fits nicely in my pocket and is a great holder for it. So yeah still working great. Video and picture quality is great, the interface is super easy to use (on the phone and the app) and it’s never not worked and I’ve been using it almost every other day. Oh and yeah I’ve used it a lot more in water since my last update. lol it’s definitely waterproof without any case. Also it is indeed very sturdy. I’ve dropped it, my kids have run over it, and it has been tossed all over. It kind of makes it more fun in a weird way. You can just hand it off to your kid and it won’t break (and believe me kids break everything) or you can go running around with and not have to be extra careful. Ok I will try and update it in another month or two after so more use but i can thoughtfully say now that the GoPro Hero is well worth it and I have not used their other models like the GoPro Hero 5 or 6, so i can’t speak to them. Sorry one last thing and this is meant for parents. Give the GoPro to your kids for the afternoon and say just go off and fill up the memory card with lots of different videos and photos. You will get some of the most precious and genuine moments you can possibly imagine. I don’t know if it the portable size or how the tripod makes it look like a mini movie camera, but our daughter came back with heartwarming footage that we will show her years from now when she has her own kids. Ok lol sorry I know most of you don’t care about all that, but hopefully I covered the quality part of it.
Update: 6/8/18 – ok i don’t know if i should keep providing updates or this is useful, but i have some more feedback. As you can read from above, I like to start slow with buying accessories for any device to make sure I am first happy with the device itself. So now that I am happy with the GoPro Hero, I have ventured out and found another useful accessory, besides the basic gopro tripod, that is inexpensive ($19.99). The accessory is basically just a sleeve with a lanyard in three different colors (i got the blue one because well i like the color blue and it looks fun especially in water). On Amazon it’s called “Accessory Cover Gopro Sleeve plus Lanyard”. Honestly though, i pretty much buy everything off of Amazon, but in this case (not sure Amazon likes me saying this part) but I bought this accessory and the tripod off the GoPro site because they give you 20% off if you have the GoPro Plus $4.99 membership. Anyways, it’s a just a few bucks, so probably can do it off Amazon to make it easier, especially for returns. Ok enough about that sorry. So the “GoPro Sleeve Plus Lanyard” is such a basic accessory but man it’s super duper useful. Combined with the tripod, it’s the only accessories I think I need and they both are cheap (I know people buy the one that hooks to the chest and all but I don’t use that). Anyways, it’s perfect for when you’re in the water because the lanyard can be secure around your neck or wrist. And since fun moments to capture kind of pop unexpectedly, I use it to keep it around my neck so I can quickly turn it on and capture what’s happening (especially easy because if you hit tap the record button on stop it just starts recording without having to push anything else). And I know this part is subject, but there’s something just fun about having it in the sleeve (especially in blue, but i’m partial to blue), you just look at it and you kind of want to grab it and start shooting something. I just recorded my daughter riding her bike for the first time (without training wheels) and it came out great. Again easy because of the sleeve+lanyard. Also, for traveling, you can pack the GoPro Hero + sleeve & lanyard + tripod literally in your coat pocket. Ok so sorry that was a lot of typing about a $20 accessory that is basically just a sleeve and lanyard, but I just found it super useful and thought I recommend that people first start with the tripod and sleeve+lanyard before spending too much on accessories. Oh and also, if you’re wondering if you should buy the high end version instead, i’m not sure what the answer to that is. I am super happy with the quality of the video and pics on the Hero, especially because of the price being $199, but I have seen friends videos and pics off the Hero 6 and I won’t lie it’s pretty incredible and yeah it’s better than the Hero quality, but it’s also $399. If this is your first GoPro Hero (like me, well I had the Session like I mentioned earlier, but that one is sort of a different model and as I mentioned I didn’t like that one), I would recommend starting with this one. The good thing is they are all the same size, so all the accessories will transfer over if I decide to upgrade in say 2 years. Ok so to finish off, I am still super happy with the GoPro Hero and I’ve been using it literally daily/every other day since I bought it.
Update 7/5/18 – ok I’ve now had the GoPro Hero for 3 months. I’m still going strong with just the two basic accessories (the basic $29.99 tripod and the basic $19.99 sleeve + lanyard). We have started to bike around the local forest reserves so I’ve been thinking about getting a bike mount, but haven’t pulled the trigger on that one. Ok so in terms of updates, I would definitely recommend getting an extra battery especially for trips. For day to day use I don’t find the need for the extra battery. But vacation trips, it was definitly a mistake to not get an extra battery as we couldn’t get back to the hotel or a charge point. Anyways the batteries are relatively cheap and super tiny so doesn’t add to travel bulk. The picture and video quality continues to be just really awesome. The versatility of this thing in terms of going from a water enviorment to a more rugged one where it has to be able to take a fall and not break and do so in a manner of that is truly portable and easy and quick to operate is what makes this thing so insanely useful.
On the negative side, I have noticed that once in a while I have to swipe one extra time on the touch screen to have it react. Minor and infrequent event, but worth looking into by GoPro. I’m not sure of th cause, maybe it happens if the screen is grimy or something, not sure.
Anyways, overall, still loving it and with summer here it’s use has gone up to every day usage. Oh and last thing, my daughter dropped it down a flight of stairs last week and literally nothing happened to it. They should make my car out of this stuff.
Update 7/14/18 – oh forgot to mention, MAKE SURE you buy the memory card recommend by GoPro (SanDisk Extreme® 64GB microSDXC or the SanDisk Extreme® 32GB microSDHC. Here’s the link to it on Amazon –
SanDisk Extreme 64GB microSDXC UHS-3 Card – SDSQXAF-064G-GN6MA [Newest Version
]). The reason I say to make sure to buy the right memory card is because I have two friends whose GoPro was freezing and it turns out it was because they didn’t use the GoPro recommended memory card. Apparently it’s a high speed card that the camera needs.)
Update 7/22/18 – have a noticed a few times that the audio stops playing when replaying the video on the camera itself. i went to settings and hit the reset settings option and then it worked fine. it automatically restarted the camera and in like 20 seconds it all was fine. i have just recently started changing it from 1440 to 1080 so that i can change the field of view to narrow and medium as that can get better footage when you are up close to things. On 1440, the only option is wide. It’s just that the video quality looks so good on 1440 that I usually end up leaving it on that setting. oh my son was running with the gopro on the little tripod accessory and ran into the wall and lol he was fine most importantly and the gopro was fine as well. if you get the chance, go down a water slide with it, you get some awesome footage. again would like to reiterate that to start one of the coolest things about the gopro is it’s portability for when you go on trips, so i would highly recommend not going overboard on buying accessories to not only reduce cost but also to ensure you can easily pack everything without too much bulk. so pretty much the gopro hero + 64 gb memory card (specific one required,
SanDisk Extreme 64GB microSDXC UHS-3 Card – SDSQXAF-064G-GN6MA [Newest Version
] + 2 batteries + mini tripod thing + sleeve&lanyard thing.
Update 7/25/18 – Ok I swear I am not trying to test if this thing will break lol. But I was chasing my 2 1/2 year old son down the street and I had the gopro hero in the mini tripod in my sweatpants pocket (it holds better in the back pocket of jeans btw) and it fell out and wam it slammed on the concrete. I was like oh @#$. I looked down and the edges around the square lens cover thing was dinged up pretty good but interestingly enough the lens cover didn’t get scratched at all. So then I turned it on to check if something inside broke. But everything was fine. So yeah it’s pretty tough. anyways so just a recommendation, if you are wearing more loose fitting clothes like sweats, the gopro hero might fall out of your pocket but if you have jeans on it’s totally fine. My wife asked me why don’t I just use the blue sleeve + lanyard thing because that can connect around my wrist. i just like alternating between the mini tripod handle thing and the sleeve + lanyard mostly because I find that the camera moves around less when i use the mini trip handle grip thing for obvious reasons. so now that I know this thing can take a serious hit with no damage, might hook it to the front of my daughter’s bike wit this
GoPro Handlebar/Seatpost/Pole Mount (GoPro Official Mount)
but then i saw it was $56 for the mount and that seems kind of pricey although the reviews are good on it and it definitely fits the need. But as I have mentioned in my many comments above, i don’t recommend buying tons of accessories right off the bat. Think about it for a while and see if you really think you need instead of just going out and spending too much on accessories. If you find yourself consistently riding your bike (two times doesn’t count!) and holding the gopro with one hand as you ride, then yeah start looking into the mount for that purpose. After owning two basic accessories so far (the basic tripod and the basic sleeve + lanyard, i can tell you that while the gopro accessories are not cheap, they do feel really solid and good quality like the camera itself).
Update 8/20/18 – Still going great! The app is really well designed. The automatic videos that the App creates after it auto-synchs with the GoPro are just great. You can even use your own music if you want. It automatically matches up the beats of the song with the video, so cool. I cannot stress how much of a different experience this GoPro was from the GoPro Session I bought over 2 years ago. Just flat out night and day. Luckily I haven’t dropped the GoPro again since my last update but as I referenced before, it wouldn’t matter even if I did as the thing is practically indestructible. It has frozen once since my last update but I just took out the battery and put it back in and all was fine. Btw, 2 points to the designer of the battery who put that little handle on it. It lets you slightly pull it out and push it back in. That way you don’t have to completely remove the battery when it freezes. Again though, it’s only frozen a few times since I bought it so not an issue.
Update 9/3/18 – yesterday I forgot to bring my GoPro hero as we celebrated the last weekend of summer in the city and I got ugh got my iPhone wet and something happened to the mic. Luckily I dried out the phone and eventually hard reset the phone and everything is back to normal. But would have been much better if I remembered the GoPro because I would have got way better shots because I wouldn’t have to be so careful. With the GoPro, one of the continuing pluses is how tough and durable it is. You could hang out and have a good time and not have to worry about breaking anything. And it’s durable enough where you can just hand it off to your kid and say go run with it and not have to worry.

I think I bought this 7 years ago. It was a gift for my kids. I hope this was MY order!
Daksh Verma –
The first time i ordered it wasn’t working on battery,only while plugged in. Got it replaced and still the same problem. Would like to know if there is any way around this issue other than the cycle of receive and replace.

Received a genuine product which was box packed and was vacuum sealed as well. For all my usage the Hero works fine for me. Hero 5 & 6 are great if you have an extremely active lifestyle. but in my case where i travel on a vacation once or twice a year and mainly focus on making home videos of my family I have Sony A6000 and a Samsung S9+ and the gopro offers me to click and capture a different wide angle perspective. All in all it does the job and I have also kept my SJcam aside since i got this because firstly the Gopro AVI fornat is widely supported by video editing softwares. And moreover Gopro is just that best quality and build product that you can’t ignore. Plus the gopro quik video editing app is a boon for people with less time to spare for video editing.
Amazon Customer –
I HAVE TRIED TO CHARGING ITS BATTERY , BUT ITS NOT CHARGING, THE CHARGING RED LIGHT ITS NOT GLOWING.
I GOT THIS DELIVERY TODAY ONLY , GIVE ME THE SOLUTION.
I got fed up with my Sony Action Camera. Sold it and bought this GoPro unit. GoPro seems to have the same confusing product information as Apple products do. Luckily, I found some excellent product reviews and capabilities which led me to buy THIS model GoPro. I bought it to record my fishing efforts. I have a brackish water canal in my backyard and I fish nearly every day, and many nights. Although this camera SAYS it has low light setting, I’ve not seen any picture improvement in low light with it on or off. Other than that one concern, the camera works easily and flawlessly. I have it set on it’s lowest video/audio quality and to my eyes on my big screen Samsung TV, the picture is excellent as well as the audio is very clear and quite sensitive. I had and audiobook playing through my iPhone and a volume loud enough for me to hear, but not blast the neighborhood. Even though the camera sits on a swivel stand I created from several different accessories I bought here for less than $20 with a hard shell foam lined case. So I can control the camera with ANY device that can pair using Bluetooth. Add this excellent function for my situation so I don’t have to leave the camera running through all the hours I’m not landing a fish. However, when I get a strike, I can quickly hit start after the fish is hooked but before the really excellent fighting begins when I try to reel what I’ve caught in. THEN, using my customized camera holder which I don’t have to wear. I can swivel the camera as I fight the fish along the path it takes while I do my beat to net it. Whether connected to my fishing chair, or to any other solidly secured post, stand, or even to my fishing rod tripod rack system which keeps my rods parallel to the water and very easy to grab and hopefully set the hook.
Conclusion…as my month of ownership has taught me, the model GoPro black camera I bought with an accessory pack. I am now able to have more than just still photos after I land each fish before I put it back into the canal. So much more fun to not only remember how each fish was caught, but now I have a record of exactly how each fish fought, where the strike in the canal occurred, and the really lengthy fight with some of the bigger aquatic critters from big bluegills, to mullet up to 6lbs, typical snapping turtles as well as Alligator Snapping turtles (which look more interesting with their very long tail, ridged shell, and massive head and sharp clawed feet), to Armored Sailfin Catfish (aka…Plated Sucker Fish), to huge Tilapia, Blue Catfish, Walking Catfish, and even dozens of blue claw crabs. There are even Largemouth Bass here, but ONLY congregate at the end of my canal near and half submerged tree. Perhaps, someday I’ll walk down there with my gear and see if I can catch one. All other creatures I’ve mentioned either hang out near my chum bucket I keep filled in the water near my fishing spot which the Tilapia and Armored Cats seem to find irresistible. Although I don’t catch any Mullet near my chum bucket, I’m hoping just having the chum in the water causes Mullet to go into a feeding frenzy which allows me to catch many more fish than the few other fishermen on this same canal.
I’ve been trying to get a community fishing contest possibly with prize money based on the yet to be determined entrance fee for each adult fisherman and something as a reward for any young adults or young children if they join the tournament. So far like most things here…no one has shown any interest. But IF I manage to create a contest, having my digital Sony video camera I can mount on a tripod or walk around…whichever will be best. Then combine that footage with anything captured by my GoPro, I should be able to create an excellent video each participant could share.
Only thing I don’t like about this camera is how fast it kills the rechargeable batteries which is why I bought five extra ones so I’d hopefully have enough working camera time to record the entire event. If anyone reading this knows for a fact video recording with the cameras minimal settings is typical of the less than advertised battery video recording time, I’d appreciate being told just as much if my battery usage is typical. Thanks.
