HORRIBLE BODY QUALITY BRANDNEW HERO 8 BLACK

[ Edited ]

REALLY GOPRO?!?!?!?

Brand new GoPro Hero 8 Black out of the box!

WTF?!?!

And I'm not the only one! Search the WWW!

DO NOT BUY this JUNK unless GoPro improves this absolutely horrible manufacturing quality!

Only the battery shutter looks the way it should be.

And please DO NOT tell me that it SHOULD look like this due to the fact that the body of the Hero 8 Black has been redesigned!

There are pictures of other customers on the WWW that show bodies of the Hero 8 Black looking "normal".

I'm really p****d off!

Same here mate 😬

 

Did u already get in touch with support?

I  did and they said this is not normal and they have to discuss this with their team. Afterwards they will inform me via mail.

 

:/ I also found pics in fb  groups where the surface looks completely normal.

Also lots of pics on facebook where it looks like ours. looks completely scratched. 

It´s a shame for a premium brand like Gopro.

Support chat and support phone was already closed / not available anymore today. Will give it another shot tomorrow for sure!

Good to know that they didn't told you that this is normal. Hopefully they won't change their opinion afterwards.

Would be great if you could inform within this thread what they told you afterwards.

I found those pics also. Wish mine would have looked that way.

That would be a really great idea! A full refund would be the least GoPro should do! This is a MUST!
