i think international wty is a gimmick lah...
true, u would bring the camera out for your overseas travel but do u have time to replace it overseas when it's spoilt? u probably come back to singapore to do it. well that's me.

Has anyone encountered the following issues so far with Hero 7 Black?

- Hangs/freeze even after latest patch and using recommended MicroSD
- Fast battery drain
- Overheating

battery drain is due to wifi. turn off connections when not in use.

hang happens if you leave it and it goes to sleep mode but cant wake up when you want to record again. switch off when not in use.

battery drain is linked to the wifi. just off when not in use

I'd rather buy from the official store with free shipping and local warranty than a 3rd party parallel importer. Also comes with a free 32GB SD.

Intl warranty is good and all but what if you're not going overseas? If it does break down overseas you won't know how long the repair/replacement turnaround time is like or if the warranty can be claimed.

There are smart pac and another brand. But I not sure is it good or not. I heard some review that It will be very difficult to take out from. The battery tray.

Thanks for recommending! But can I check with you. Is it very difficult to pull out from the battery stray when u insert this battery? And the battery life is as good as original battery?
