GoPrp Hero4 Silver

Hi y'll,
Looking to purchase the GPH4-Silver but a quick search on the net found this to be problematic. This is after getting some comparison between it's rival SONY and I have decided to get the GoPro.

It seems not only the Hero4-Silver but all across the range.
I have both apple and droid smart phones so if either do not connect well, let me know too.

I have a droid phone and tablet and both connect great. My friend has a H4 Silver as well. He has a Iphone 6 and Ipad. Works great for him. Another body has a H3 and connects it to both his droid and Macbook no problem.

Thanks Hawkshot,
Even at FB-GoPro, there's these issue of the unit freezing up, can't start, overheating, etc. https://www.facebook.com/gopro/posts/271125813016872

It's the same in YouTube, scores of issues and GoPro's returns are aplenty.
It worries me to having the unit setup for a big event and end up with a paper weight on the bike. Money is another issue.

That is over 2 years old. Also that is the older H3, and several versions of the software ago.

Problems reported in that Facebook page are ongoing. The latest models are still highly problematic, and the updates yield no real improvement... It would seem very foolish for anyone to buy one if it can't operate properly.

Anyone using the SONY AZ1R ?

Or should I wait for something Apple is planning to launch ?
