EKEN H9R Design & Build Quality

EKEN H9R has a 2-inch screen on the front, up-down button, and microphone hole on the right, micro USB port, mini HDMI port and an SD card slot on the left, 1050 mAh battery compartment and speaker grill at the bottom, select/shutter button at the top with an led indicator and a 4MP camera sensor, power/mode button on the back with a charging indicator.

EKEN H9R Design

Obviously, You cannot expect to build quality like GoPro or Xiaomi Camera. But, Considering the price of the camera, build quality is acceptable. The camera feels lightweight, which is good and made out of plastic materials with rubberized patterned edges, which give it a fantastic look.

EKEN H9R Video & Photo

This camera has Video, Photo, Burst and Time Lapse Mode to click pictures and record videos. You can repeatedly press the Power or Mode button to change the modes and go to the settings. This action camera has a 4MP sensor for video and photo. But, Photos clicked from H9R can be upscaled to 12MP, hence sometimes the 12MP camera is stated. And, This camera can record videos in [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] and [email protected]

The 4MP sensor on this camera performs well and has a good dynamic range. Actually, Considering the price, The camera is better than expected. This camera has a super wide angle lens with a 170-degree view. But, The Camera doesn’t have Image Stabilization. Overall, The picture quality is good.

Note: As per the manufacturer, this action camera supports micro SD card up to 32 GB but I am using 64 GB micro SD card and it’s working fine. You can watch a review to see the camera samples.

EKEN H9R Battery

The manufacturer claims that EKEN H9R can last for 90 minutes in [email protected] video recording and 60 minutes in [email protected] video recording and the claim seems almost real. I tried to use this camera with ON screen saver and it lasted for around 80-90 minutes in 720P & 1080P video recording and around 50-60 minutes in 2.7K & 4K video recording. Note: If you’ll Turn-Off the Screen Saver then you will get less battery backup. And, Charging the camera takes less than 2 hours.

EKEN H9R Remote Control

EKEN H9R Verdict

Like every other product and service, EKEN H9R has its own pros and cons. But, considering the low price of 40-50$, EKEN H9R is great value for the money camera and also offers acceptable video and photo quality and a very useful Remote Control. In my opinion, EKEN H9R is one of the cheapest and best action camera available in the market. But, If you can afford Go Pro action camera then obviously, EKEN H9R is the worst action camera for you.
