      Did it say that in the video? I missed it lol I was going to say though, it doesn’t seem like they would be able to use the phone at all to get 20 days of battery life . I call BS. I’m sure their new processor is more power efficient,but 20 days is just not believable.

    As of today, ZERO video was submitted to Qualcomm’s one charge challenge. We suggest that you should consider taking up this challenge by using 24/7 Time Lapse app, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.portable.timelapse.lite So that you can capture at least one full day worth of photo in a single charge, which you can assemble into a single time-lapse video to enter the competition. More information on this app can be found on http://247timelapse.com
