LG Action Cam.
Size: 35 x 35 x 77.9mm
GoPro Hero4 Black 4K.
Size: 41.0 x 59.0 x 29.6mm
LG Action Cam uses the same Sony 1/2.3 inch 12.3MP sensor as HTC 10 and Nexus which mean bigger and basically better sensor than the one in G5.
When it comes to quality it's all depends on LG processing and lens but GoPro has more video features for example GoPro can record 1080p@120fps and 720p@240fps while LG can only record up to 1080p@60fps and 720p@120fps.
xy, 12 May 2016why is it on helmet...its to big and probably to heavy...y will stay with my GoPro stuff...It looks definitely smaller than GoPro and probably have better quality video as well (if the sensor is indeed like G5). GoPro is dying .. just went from profitable to loss making and will soon join gang of HTC, Blackberry and Nokia.
Peter-B, 12 May 2016Note that live streaming is limited to 720p @ 30fps. I would have thought LTE could do better,... moreStill... at least in UK any suitable data plan would cost fortune... Bare in mind there are no really unlimited 4g connection yet... Unlimited plans have "fair use policy" of up to 100GB.. so at best you can upload like 3-3,5h of life stream (quick math - one frame on 720p is ~0.25-0.5MB, 1s@30fps 7,5-15MB which as well is average speed of UK 4G... so if you upload 1h~27+GB, that will burst almost any monthly data plan).

Linas, 12 May 2016Nail in GoPro coffin... though 4K over 4G can cost quite a lot... Seems like Wi-Fi will be use... moreNote that live streaming is limited to 720p @ 30fps. I would have thought LTE could do better, but here we are.
Ali Chiddy, 12 May 2016Compatible with iOS, but no mention if it has OISDidn't see it in the specs, so no, it doesn't.
Anonymous, 12 May 2016Great. Now all i have to do is fork out $150 for it.What, do you expect it for free ?.
Ali Chiddy, 12 May 2016Compatible with iOS, but no mention if it has OISIt must have OIS, otherwise considering how this camera is gonna be used, not having OIS would be stupid.
looks like it's using the Hero Session protective case format. If is indeed larger(longer) than the session, however i really hope it can record while charging/plugged in, which the Session can not. If it can i am more than interested because it can double as a live dashboard cam, am with backup of the recorded stuff to a remote server is just what the doctor ordered.
