Has the ability to shoot in 4k, a field of view of 94 degrees, and a 3-axis, brushless, gimbal.
Can survive hard falls from 10 - 15ft.

When the battery is getting low, or the drone has lost contact with the controller, it will return to the starting point. It is also able to detect and avoid objects that you, the pilot, may not be aware of. Then, when you're done flying, the drone can land itself.
Pro Sport mode for advanced flying
In sport mode, the Phantom 4 will fly faster and bank harder, allowing you to get a wider variety of shots. Good for more advanced pilots.
Pro Sense and Avoid capability
The Phantom 4 can sense 3D objects around it and will brake and reroute to go around them.
Pro Subject tracking
Tap the screen and the Phantom 4 will keep the subject in the shot. Great for controller-free flying and beginners.
Pro Supports livestreaming to Facebook
Stream footage from your drone directly to Facebook Live.
Con Propellers can get in the shot
Sometimes the propellers dip into the shot when turning or speeding up.
Con Sense and Avoid only prevents head on collisions
Sense and Avoid will not stop you from backing into things and hitting things when moving sideways.
Con Sense and Avoid only works in normal mode
When in sport mode, the Phantom 4 sense and avoid functionality does not work. It will not stop itself from crashing.
Con Blades need to be removed for transporting
The blades on the Phantom 4 do not collapse, and need to be taken off when transporting the drone.
Con Only livestreams to Facebook Live
Doesn't offer support for YouTube or Periscope streaming.
Con Awkward to transport
The dimensions for the DJI Phantom 4 are 8.7 x 15 x 12.8 inches. This means that the Phantom 4 will not fit in your backpack, and when properly packaged for transportation will either require its own bag or take up about half the space in an average roller board suitcase.
