go pro 3 black glitchy?

i recieved a go pro black for x-mas and i was happy. i took it out of the packing and charged it right away. i then recorded a video with a class 10 sd card. played the video and noticed the image had black spots on the screen. i returned the cam and got another gopro 3 black. now after the update all my videos come up blank with just audio.

also if i turn it on sometimes it just lights up and nothing can be selected. i have to remove the battery to turn it off. then it does the same thing.

if you can help me please lmk i need to take good videos. i have my samsung s3 but i like the gopro.

please help

Mine is very twitchy. Seems I'm removing the battery all the time to reset it and tha'ts a pain in the ass when it's in the case mounted!

I've not been pleased with the black so far. (long time gopro fan... and have 3 other go pro cameras).

also have not gotten the IOS app to work. Doesn't see the blacks wifi.

Updated firmware (twice now)

Battery also drains when not in use (with wifi off) Unit MUST be charged just before use. = (

Old style LCD backpack locks it up 50% of the time.
I can live with that if the APP would work so I could eliminate the old LCD backpack.

NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE BLACK.

Time to exchange it for another one. I've got two Blacks with none of those problems (except battery draining when on standby, which really isn't one), though I have an Android phone and tablet that I use the App on.
