New go pro hero 5 looks noticeably grainy/pixelated

I have just bought the Go Pro hero 5 and after just under a month of casual use and general satisfaction with the video quality I had used a go pro hero 3 and  for a project and noticed a drastic difference in the video quality, solid colours and edges on the 5 are noticably (very) grainy especially compared to the other two. I have spent many ours running tests usingDifferent SD cards (of varying downlads speeds) doing exact side by side comparisons and also Limiting the iso on the 5 and nothing has changed...
