YI technology has released two version of YI action camera 2. International version and Chinese version(CN version), CN version can’t be fully used outside China mainland. Why not? Let me show you the details.
Different APP & Firmware Update
CN version of YI action camera II is with Chinese APP. By contrast, International version is English APP, which is more suitable for outside mainland China market. The most importance thing is the users from outside mainland China buy CN version and the language can ‘t be switched to English. What is the worst, it can’t connect to YI action camera APP and some functions can’t be used, even you can’t update APP or firmware.
Different screen interface language
Another difference is language display on the screen. International version is English and CN version is Chinese. If you accidentally buy a CN version YI action camera, you may not know how to operate it because of language difference. What a mess!
Different certifications of battery
International version has passed CE & FCC certification, additional, CRUUS or KC certification.
Different label on the package
From label on the package, we can know some basic specifications about YI action camera 2, but Chinese version is Chinese label. International version is English and it is easier to help the user know more about YI action camera 2.
Different user manual and instruction
Obviously, Chinese version and international version YI action camera 2 are packed with different language user manual. Chinese version user manual is Chinese and international version user manual is English. If you buy Chinese version one and don’t know how to operate it with Chinese user manual. You camera will become useless. For the best user experience, we suggest to buy international version.
YI official after-sale services
More over, YI doesn’t provide official after-sale services for CN version from outside mainland China, if there is something wrong with your CN version YI action camera, there is no YI official customer service.
