But after reading lots on here, it seems sometimes the SD card is to blame.
So how can one know if it is a faulty camera or an incompatible/faulty SD card causing the issues? Without trying another SD card of course.
Is there any tell tale signs?

When you say another product, you mean something other than the GoPro? The GoPro is all I have that takes a microSD card...
Would a GoPro creating its own hilights without any human input be an indication of a non-compatible SD card, or is that a camera issue?

Magic- 8 ball how was I to know all that?
Yes well that be about two plus hours... Dan said the Hero camera takes a 128gb crd, while the manual shows 256gb crd accepted
seems the list does not show for the heero 6 a 256gb card or I need some coffee.

Haha sorry about that :p
Dan was mistaken about the max of a hero 6 being 128GB - that’s a hero 5, we discussed this on my other post. The hero 6 states in the manual it accepts 256GB and everything I read before buying the camera said the same.
also the fact the card works in my camera with no error stated, and sometimes records just fine tells me the card should be compatible

The most reliable cards come from authorized / reliable sellers....GoPro-Listed models....32 / 64 gb.
Try recording as long as possible at home in difficult modes. Some cards will work for a minute or two, and then the person stops the test. No, I am talking about going as long as possible, to catch glitching.
By doing things like this, especially the first sentence, I seem to have no troubles. I also use only genuine batteries. Do full reformats occasionally. Always start shoots with an empty card.
Least reliable results would be from some eBay card seller, non-listed models. LARGE capacity, esp with many past clips and pics left on the card.

dont quite understand your second paragraph?? My card is from a genuine retailer in Australia and is a proper genuine card. Batteries are all official GoPro.
in terms of always shooting with a newly formatted card each time, and not having previous clips on the card and the fact that LARGE capacity cards are less reliable. I’m sorry but to me that is a load of cr*p! How can a company like GoPro claim to be at the forefront of action cameras, being a market leader, stating the camera can take up to 256GB as cards. Then we be advised as per these posts as to say the cameras have limited functionality if a specific card is used in certain ways.
im sorry but for the price of these devices, it is completely unacceptable! It’s like buying a Mercedes and then saying, you may have issues if you go over 30mph. The car will do 155mph, but we recommend you only stay at 30mph for it to be reliable!
