I just flied my Inspire 1 today at the same location I used to fly my GoPRO camera.

The result was quite disappointed that the pictures seem dirty.  Unlike the pictures I took by GoPRO, which looks much better.

I tried to both ways: extract frame from 4K video, or took pictures directly.

Actually,  I feel more partial to the Inspire shot! Might just be more saturation and contrast though..

Well, you may or may not be right, but there's no way to tell from these two shots. They were taken at different times of the day, with dramatically different lighting and likely different ISO, aperture and shutter settings. To do a real comparison of the two cameras you'd need to shoot with the same settings in the same lighting conditions.

Are you shooting raw images and processing in lightroom or photoshop?  If you are just shooting jpgs you are missing out on the high quality stuff this little camera can do.

You are right.  My conclusion may not be fair.  But this is my first impression of Inspire 1.  I surely will try it later with both of my drones to shoot at the exactly same situation.

I tried to shoot raw and also to extract a frame from 4K video.

The raw picture definitely is better than the picture extracted from video.  But for my experience of GoPRO Hero4 Black, each picture I drew from its video was so good -- almost as good as a standalone picture.

These pictures were taken at different times of the day and different times of the year and at different altitudes.  This is not a good comparison.
Despite that I like the Inspire image more.  It is very sharp and look at the rich blacks and the colour saturation of the red pickup truck.
The overall contrast is more to my liking as well.
Just my take....

you can not compare bananas with apples.
please be more professional.
judge the quality from pictures taken from same height, same hour, same flight session, same position.
go pro is action camera (add on to any mobile), inspire1 is a complete flying drone with 4k camera.
put the go pro on inspire on and take some pictures simultaneously.
waiting for new shoots

Actually, they could have been taken from the same height. The GOPRO's 4k can only be used at its widest angle setting. Hence, the look of being higher.

Having shot with both, and as a retired videographer, my eye prefers the camera from DJI. You may want watch to watch this comparison:
