CHALLENGE: 1080p video playback with no background syncing and other services, at a moderate brightness, how long does the battery last against other flagship devices
That sounds more like a challenge for our devices team! I'll let them know
Our Android experts are members of the Community, rather than internal staff and we're trying to challenge their Android abilities.
What challenges would you love to see them do?

I'm paraphrasing here! I don't know if you have any chance of me convincing them to do that
Kingybear: You'd better be! These will be serious challenges!
