It's a good question also I just bought the camera and for my patience and use the smartphone is the only interface to visualize the videos and edit them. I just watched the video on PC after upload them to youtube now let's how it looks like before any edit.

The video was recorded without protune with 1080p 60fps
Video edited using Quik app:

- Youtube result: https://youtu.be/RC3BkzjI-3Q (my youtube app is configured to upload with full quality)
Video edited using ActionDirector app exported with 4k 30fps:

- Youtube result: https://youtu.be/59oSDcJClJk
Look de huge difference between youtube and the file. Using ActionDirector app and exporting with 1080p 60fps I got a worst result, as the quik youtube vídeo.

If the pixelation is coming directly from the camera and not from an editor or after uploading to YouTube or similar site, then there may be an issue with the SD card or the camera. If you are using one of these cards https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations , have run a MANUAL update and are still seeing pixelation on raw unedited videos with a video player like VLC media player on a computer with decent specs, then contact the GoPro Support Team. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs
If you are seeing this after uploading to YouTube or after editing, then the issue resides with how you are rendering the video. It could also be your computer. The Hero3+ Silver for example, records at up to 25 Mb/s while the Hero6 records a bit rate up to 78 Mb/s in HEVC, which is significantly more demanding on the computer.
