DJI Phantom 4 review

 

Thinking of giving drones a go? The Phantom 4 is where you start

Obstacle detection and automatic modes means it practically flies itself ; Still the easiest drone to use, even in Sport mode ; Fantastic camera and an even better gimbal

Low light still a challenge ; Lack of model choice

Not just a simple step up – the Phantom 4 is a massive leap forward for drones that should open the doors to everyone

DJI Phantom 4 review

 

DJI's Phantom 4 adds groundbreaking object avoidance plus an improved high-quality, robust build

High-quality stabilised footage ; Object avoidance ; Easy to fly

Phantom 3 batteries not compatible ; Constant software updates ; App can get a bit confusing

The Phantom 4 is a refinement of the Phantom 3 Professional. There are tweaks to the camera's performance, but the major upgrades are the robust design, improved materials, and clever flight aids using new sensors. This makes the Phantom 4 a worthwhile...

DJI Phantom 4 review: Automatic flying for the people

 

DJI's top consumer drone is smart enough to practically fly itself while you concentrate on getting awesome aerial shots. But maybe that's not such a good thing.

The DJI Phantom 4 is a very polished drone compared to its competition, and for those who've flown a quad before, you'll have no trouble getting started with this one. The new Sport mode lets you get to your location faster or just have some fun. Its...

The Obstacle Sensing System only sees things in front of the drone. You still need a tablet or phone ready to go along with the controller and drone battery. Extra batteries are expensive. Landing gear and camera are fixed to the body, so you can't...

Yep, it's not cheap, but DJI has made one of the smartest drones available with the Phantom 4.

DJI Phantom 4 review: the drone that won’t crash into things

 

Now that prices of previous Phantoms have dropped massively, is the Phantom 4 worth a massive £1229? We think so, and you'll find out why in our DJI Phantom 4 review.

The Phantom 4 is unquestionably DJI’s best drone yet. It shoots decent quality 4K video and is easier to control than ever before. Batteries are very expensive, though, and the intelligent modes still don’t quite match those you’ll get with a 3DR Solo...

DJI Phantom 4 review: Now harder to crash

 

With its new collision-avoidance system and upgrades all round, this is the top-end, all-in-one drone to buy

If you’re serious about drones and aerial photography, though, either for leisure or as a small business such as event or wedding photography, then the DJI Phantom 4 gets our thumb up. It’s brilliantly designed, safer than ever, shoots better footage...

DJI Phantom 4 review: DJI’s eye in the sky is the one to fly

 

Packed with new technology and updated features, the DJI Phantom 4 is better than ever — it's the most capable drone you can buy

The DJI Phantom 4 is not quite a drone for the non-enthusiast, then, but it’s closer than ever before to that ideal, and it’s the safety features – the collision-detection and tracking features, not to mention the safety net of the automatic...

DJI Phantom 4 Review

 

We review the DJI Phantom 4 - the top of the range consumer drone from DJI with a 12mp camera, 4K video recording, and a 3-axis gimbal for stable shooting.

Easy to fly with Beginner mode ; Comes with protective case and lens cover ; 4K video with lots of options ; Good 12-megapixel photo modes ; Improved flight time ; Follow feature ; Direct firmware update from smartphone ; HDR shooting mode ; High-speed...

No zoom ; White drone is easy to lose in bright sky ; Price compared to P3 Advanced/Professional ; Some other remotes feature a built-in screen ; Sometimes height drops ; Loud

In terms of drone photography and video, the DJI Phantom 4 is one of the best available, with a stylish design and magnesium core for strength. As DJI are one of the leading and most popular brands in the consumer drone industry, it makes sense that...
