Question Used Hero 3+ Black v/s new Hero+

Hi everyone.

I need help deciding what GoPro camera to keep. I got given a new GoPro Hero+ camera but had just bought from someone a 2-year-old used GoPro Hero 3+ Black camera. I know the Hero 3+ black is a bit better in terms of photo quality, etc. But I am not sure if this is more important than the fact that it has been used for 2 years (although it seems in perfect conditions, I could upload photos/videos in order for you guys to see if it is taking photos/videos as it should). Please let me know your opinions on this matter. Note that I dont want to open up the GoPro Hero+ because if I decide to sell it I can sell it for more money if it hasn't been opened.

Thanks for your help!

Def keep the hero3 Black edition!
Much better video quality and way more options in term of video recording.
the Hero+ is limited to 1080 and 720 whereas the Hero 3+ Black can record in 4K.
Here are the specs for the Hero3+ Black

Here is a review and some specs for the Hero+

Hero 3+ black is way better in my opinion.

Please do load up when you meet your requirements to the site.

Also [email protected] is just the start of gopro 4k where as you are still behind with the Hero 4 Black oct 2014 and today the hero 5, the best cam to have in hand is the hero 4 SE. Sell the cams and update then to be oudated but no matter what enjoy your footage
