Win a Snapdragon powered smartphone with the Qualcomm “Around the World on One Charge” challenge
As a way to show off the energy efficiency of its chipsets, Qualcomm sent a smartphone powered by a Snapdragon chip on a tour around the world. And by "around the world" we literally mean that the device traveled around the Earth: from Los Angeles to New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Rio and back to where it took off. The entire trip was over 36,000 miles in length and lasted for 20 days, during which the smartphone was never plugged to a charger.

But the aforementioned device was not just sitting idly in a box throughout its entire trip. At each destination that the smartphone visited, it was used to capture a short entertaining video, which was later put together for your viewing pleasure. Now, before you call those "20 days on a single charge" claims bogus, keep in mind that the handset was turned on only while it was used for shooting the video, as Qualcomm admits.

Think you can highlight the power efficiency of your Snapdragon powered smartphone or tablet in a better way? Excellent! Qualcomm will sure be happy to see what you are capable of accomplishing. Just capture your feat on video or take a photo of it and enter in the “Around the World on One Charge” challenge. There is a device with a Snapdragon processor that is waiting to be won. More details are available at the Snapdragon Facebook page, so hit the source link to check them out.
