I want to use a phone as a dashcam for the remote viewing capabilities, etc.

Could we take the battery out and just give it power through usb to operate? Possibly add a capacitor

I wonder what the lowest power using phone would be with a decent camera.

Btw I currently have 2 möbius cameras.

Blackvue cameras have remote viewing and are better for reasons already mentioned before. Joovuu X is also going to have that feature with a later firmware.

Hello folks,

I have used the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 5 as dashcams for over 100 hours with Otterbox defender cases and have had no problems, except overheat in the summertime which causes the OS to start closing apps to cool down. I use the Autoguard app.

So far I have used the footage to do a few police reports

I use AutoBoy Blackbox on my Note 5 and it's great, app is free.
Typically I use 480p quality which is sufficient to record but I recently upped that to 720p since my phone's storage appears to handle long ~1hr rides just fine.
The benefit of an app dashcam is that you get all of the Android benefits like automatic uploads to google photos or dropbox (wifi or cell if you have unlimited data).
I've got it mounted below my rear view mirror on a magnetic arm.
No heat issues to date, i highly recommend it.
