Re: Re: Results are in!
I wouldn't turn your head away from the S5. Use both in store as well. I'd image you would get the normal Iphone 6 and that will have less battery life mainly due to a smaller battery. I...

Solid Article Doug. I read that earlier this year, even a couple more things buried in the settings that can be changed as well to further improve battery life.

Re: Re: Video
You might also consider an Android phone with a removable battery. You can get extras that will be pretty light. That battery pack on my scale comes out to 6.4oz

Video
Keep this in mind. I'm going to be shooting a fair amount of video, at least I plan to. At least half hour to an hour over the course of the trip. You'll want to keep that in mind for the n...

I used a r1 Hoody as a base layer with just the Mirage in upper 20s, but with a ton of wind, 20mph constant with up to 40mph gusts. I wasn't freezing cold, but I wasn't warm either. I had m...
