Replace the Sony Action cam door at £70 or buy a new action camera? any suggestions?

Hi All, Our trusted Sony AS100V action camera is not functioning properly, the button on the back has a thin strip like a bezel which is broken, couldnt find that specific replacement, checked a replacement back battery door and guess what at £70 it is expensive. for that price i am tempted to get a new action camera and wanted to consider the Xiaomi Yi 2K action camera. But having recently picked up a Redmi4A phone i was unimpressed with shaky camera. So any of you recommend a budget action camera around the 50-70 mark which has a sony sensor + OIS? or am i just asking too much? I am not a brand snob but no point on compromising on the usability .... Thanks in advance

No OIS but I'm pleased with my Xiaomi Yi, had it since Sept 2015 with no issues, quality is greatly improved with custom scripts that can double the bitrate.

Have you checked ebay, aliexpress etc for the spare part you need.

Thanks, your comments are encouraging, i cannot find specific parts on ebay / aliexpress only the whole housing, which i might replace, but still need a separate Action Camera. Xiaomi is in the shortlist, any other Sub £100 Action camera with good image and OIS they you recommend?
