    It's basically a non lte 4g service, that is better than wimax...

    "Apparently you can get around 10 hours of screen-on time on the N7100 with 3G and calls and other usual activities. On the other hand, the N7105 also only with 3G on, still cannot reach that much screen-on time. Usually it lasts around 7,8 hours of screen-on time.

    If you have 4G network activated you can get around 5h of screen on time, which is nowhere compared to what you can do with the 3G version of the Galaxy Note 2."

    LTE is the reason I have Verizon instead of Sprint. Sprint doesn't even offer WiMax here. LTE makes things so much better and the battery drain on the Note 2 isn't even noticeable. I wouldn't go back to 3G unless there was a solid HSPA+ provider, which is not available here.

    Looks like ATT recently activated LTE service in Virginia Beach VA. Last night I noticed the LTE indicator on my Note 2 for the very first time.

This turned me off since one major factor I switched to a note 2 is because of the great battery life. not to mention hspa+ isnt that bad as well. If I wanted a phone with a substandard battery I would have gotten an s3 or just stuck with my iphone 5. So meh, ill get lte on my note 3. Thanks for the comments!

    There's no added added battery strain on lte on the newer lte models

    Exactly,, and in many cases it's better on battery. Common sense, less buffering,, less battery.

    If people are complaining on a battery that easily goes 20+ hours.... I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    Only time I've killed mine faster is playing either a psx or n64 emulator for hours, which even then the battery drain is impressively low.

    Even keeping lte antenna on, I saw 29 hours before it gave me the plug me in or I'll kill you prompt (at first warning) yesterday, running Pandora for quite a bit.
