Gearbest have a flash sale on this down to £88.69. From all of the reviews that I can see it is excellent, and the specs tick the boxes for me, such as 1080P/120fp. Comes with 2 batteries, waterproof housing and some basic attatchments, (look like it's compatable with the gopro attatchments that you can get great priced bundles on).

Just a word of warning about these so called GoPro alternatives.

I purchased a cheap so called 4K action camera for my kids to mess about with in the pool,but the quality of the 4K is no better than 720p on my GoPro hero 4 silver.

Too many people get hung up on resolution and think having 4K automatically means it's going to look good,but resolution and quality are two different things,and more often than not these cheaper alternatives have the resolution but have nowhere near the quality.

I'm not saying this camera is bad as I've not seen any footage,but I'd try and view some before I committed to making a purchase.

Because there are a load of 'go-pro alternatives' on Amazon from 20 quid upwards?

Yes you can't just get any old one, but this one has good user reviews and example footage on YouTube.
90 quid for a no-name brand chinese knock off, no ta.

And it's misleading to say it's £145 on amazon, as it's not amazon selling it, it's ThiEYE themselves selling it at that price! So it's no indication of actual price.

Do note that various sellers on ebay selling T5e for £92.99, which is more realistic of actual price. So realistically 4 quid cheaper at best than gearbest, which is hardly a breathtaking deal imho

Has the same image sensor as the Hero 4 so should comparable. My Sjcam SJ7 has the same sensor and processor as this T5e I think and it's been a cracking little camera. Could no way justify spending another £150 or more on a Hero 4 and the stupidly inflated prices of a second battery, charger etc that Gopro charge. Getting nothing extra for the money.
Only thing I'd consider is customer support and FW updates for newish cameras where they sell them with bugs that may still need ironing out.
I agree with comments above, having had 5 action cameras now. Quality not just a 4K logo on a random cheap camera. BUT Aukey is my fav camera that isn't a GoPro and comes with remote, 2 batteries and does 4K @30fps. But I would rather do 1080 at 60fsp it's so much better for smoothness. Oh and the Aukey 4K camera is £59 on Amazon!!
Any recommendations for a 720/1080 WiFi IP indoor camera that's reasonably good & doesn't cost too much?
