Reviews: What do travelers think of the Greatic PP-V3 Action Camera?

It's important to be mindful of the fact that although there are 65+ reviews, at the time I'm writing this, there's only 1 Verified Purchase review, which can be a red flag. Buyer beware. You may want to check out some of the other cheaper GoPro alternatives we feature on our site.

About Greatic the brand

I could not find any information about the Greatic brand online which leads me to believe that it's just a private label of a generic camera that was made to sell on marketplaces like Amazon and eBay.
