But in-phone, the only benefit I'm seeing is high quality video and video chat - neither of which I use often. I do notice a significant bump downloading apps from the market but it's not like 3G is unbearable. More 4G specific apps will come now that the capability is there. WiFi hotspot is where 4G is very useful for me in the meantime.
Edit: Forget that the best indirect benefit of 4G is simultaneous voice/data thanks to separate radios.
It sure is nice to get this kind of performance...

What will drain your phone the most is a weak signal.
The phone radio will actually increase its power output to get a better signal.
Leaving the WiFi on will SAVE you battery life as WiFi in your home will usually beat your reception indoors.
The 4g radio is a battery hog, requires more processing power to utilize and actually runs hot for some people. I'm sure they will find tweaks to fix this through scaling and throttling.
