Buying my 1st Go Pro - Should I choose hero 6 or 5?

I have been looking at buying a go pro but am alarmed by the number of negative comments regarding the Hero 6 hence my question.

 

I have been attracted to the Hero 6 by seeing some of the image stabilisation comparison results that have been posted on youtube.

I have also followed the thread regarding the image quality for low light / indoor situations. It seems that the latest firmwear has addressed this to some extent and I plan to mainly use outside in daylight anyway.

 

Specifically though - has the issue with the jamming batteries been resolved in units that are shipping now? Was this also an issue on the Hero 5 as it is the same case? Are they still overheating?

Has anyone got any experiences of using the Hero 6 for skiing - does the battery really only last 7 minutes? How long did it last in similar conditions on the Hero 5?
