It's a decent price but I don't think I could cope with no screen and having to connect my phone to check if it recorded OK. Couldn't even do that if you're filming in water, so you might only realise later that something went wrong.
im sure they have a flashing circle on front if its recording
Does the camera have a gyro (image stabilisation)?

It's a trade off for sure. I have a gopro hero session which has no screen, and I find it quite refreshing to just click the button and forget about it. I dont see any reason to change settings on the fly, and action cam lenses are so wide that you don't have to worry about framing your shot.

For me the lack of screen only becomes a real issue when it comes to reviewing vids. You either have to do this through the app (slow + naff) or take the SD card out and plug it into something else.
Good. Buy 24 and do bullet time.

If you want videos to look professional (like go pros) it needs an inbuilt gyro (image stabilization) - note digital image stabilization is not as good but ok. This makes panning movements on the camera smooth and removes most shaking and vibrations.

Action cameras without this make videos that are not comfortable to watch. I think the cheapest action camera with gyro at the moment is the hawkeye firefly 6s £57.68 from banggood (maybe others know of a cheaper gyro action cam)

It's worth noting you can also stabilise in post if you know how. I don't have a clue how, but I've seen examples of it being done very well. With action cameras having such a wide angle, losing some of the picture to stabilise isn't such a big deal. That said, much better of the camera does the work for you!

There's a YouTube channel called The Everyday Dad where the guy is obsessed with action cams and reviews loads of them, worth a look for anyone who wants to get more familiar with the key features.
Surprinsgly good camera for the price

You might as well pay a little extra and have it done on the fly instead of the extra hassle doing it in post processing
Great camera. I actually just made 2 videos about it:
