Wewdigi vs GoPro

Let's breakdown and compare the Wewdigi 4k Wifi Action Camera against the GoPro Hero 5 and GoPro Hero 6 models.

  • Video Resolution: The Wewdigi captures video at 4k/60fps versus the GoPro Hero6 at 4K/60fps and the Hero5 at 4k/30fps.
  • Photo Resolution: The Wewdigi does not list its megapixels for photo capture, but the Hero5 and Hero6 capture at 12MP. I'd imagine that the Wewdigi is around the same.
  • Waterproof Capabilities: You can take the Wewdigi down to 100 feet underwater with its included waterproof housing. The GoPros do not need a case and can go up to 33 feet.
  • Storage Capacity: The Wewdigi can handle up to a 32GB card, while the GoPros can handle up to a 128GB MicroSD Card.
  • Voice Control: The Wewdigi does not offer voice control, but both of the GoPros do.
  • Outputs: The Wewdigi only has HDMI output. It shows a USB connection, but doesn't specify it as an output so we have to assume that it's a charging port. The GoPro Hero 5 and Hero 6 have USB Type-C, Bluetooth, Wifi, and HDMI Micro outputs.
  • Display: All three cameras have an onscreen color LCD display, but the GoPros are touch-display and the Wewdigi is NOT touch display.
  • Batteries: The Wewdigi comes with one battery but does not list its mAh or an estimated battery life time. The GoPros each come with one removeable 1220mAh Lithium Ion battery.
  • Included Accessories: The Wewdigi includes the camera itself, one battery, a waterproof housing, charging cables, plus various mounts and clips. The GoPro Hero 5/6 only come with the camera, one battery, and charging cables.

Wewdigi Action Camera Reviews: What do travelers think of this camera?

There's a concern that most of the Wewdigi reviews are fake because only a handful are from Verified Purchases, and those reviews are negative. Negative reviews include saying that the waterproof housing leaked during the first use and that the camera wouldn't turn on. There's no telling for sure if ALL of the unverified reviews are fake, but buyer beware.

About Wewdigi the brand

Outside of Amazon listings themselves, there is not much information available about the Wewdigi brand. Most likely they are Chinese manufactured cameras sold under a name that only exists for Amazon as a private label brand.
