HERO 5 Black Grainy Photos

Hello:

 

I've bought the Hero 5 black, and used it for a trip in Asia. The first photos were very grainy and I thought it was because the days was very cloudy, and ISO max was set to 800. Then the days were sunny, but was still seeing a lot of noise in the photos. I have experimented reducing max ISO to 100, and the noise has been reduced, but still seeing grain. I'm attaching a picture: it is with ISO 100 and exp 1/3000 (auto). The granularity is very evident if you zoom the image a little, mostly on the face of the person. Has anyone experienced this before? Is this normal?

 

Also, as you can see on the beach photo, the color seems not as bright as it might appear on my galaxy s7 or on a regular SLR camera. 

 

Any suggestions?
