The results I achieved so far is with the camera in a food plot with direct sunlight. 

No bait. Im probably getting 200 to 250 pics per month. 

If you put this camera on bait in the  woods I would not expect the same results. 

I put a covert cell cam out at the same time on another food plot and its been dead for 6 months now. 

With my work, I just didnt have the time  to gout out and change batteries. 

I seem to be getting my pics through their portal with no issues that Im aware of. 

 

Your covert needs a solar panel with a external battery

My main concern was with the camera facing the sunrise for the solar power to work do you get alor of morning shots that are not visible from sun glare?

you can have the camera face one way and the solar panel another way

Solar panel aimed south. Camera aimed north ideally, anywhere but south.  East or west and you'll deal with sunrise/sunset glare.

The solar panel faces the same way as the camera (not adjistable)and its facing east. Rarely do I get a bright or dark pic I cant make out.

If by chance you plan on using this camera with a solar panel you DO NOT need to put in AA batteries

Got my first one set up.  Doing trials.  So far so good.  
 

First issue is the picture viewing in the app.  They need bulk select for operations like deleting and moving to a gallery.  They also need swiping between pics versus open and close.

Also no format of card via app.  It isn't part of the menu but it is there when in setup if you hit the up arrow.  
 

Hopefully next version of the firmware has some good updates!

I was wondering if they'd interfere at all.  Will the AAs be a backup source if used?

I'm not sure if they act as a back up if the solar panel has issues, or the batteries will be used in at the same time with the solar panel
