    I know that while recording in 720p it shows the recording time out of 30min. I've never had to record one longer than that, but it's really a reasonable limit. A video recorded in 720p on the phone, that's only a few minutes long, can take up hundreds of megs. As far as other resolutions are concerned, I don't know.

    What do you mean by, "handle that,"? Be more specific. What is it specifically that you need it to be able to do?

    I believe the storage space is dictated by your sd card.

    It's not that long. Just give it a try. Turn it on and let it sit. You can always delete it.

    I recorded a three things the other night that were about 12 minutes each over a 2 and a half hour period and was on the web, texting and calling while I was not recording on it and still had 70% of the battery left at the end, so you should be just fine.

    I was fully charged when I started.
