I'm confused as to what network I should have my S5 connected to in order to maximize battery life. I recently had a booster installed at my place for better reception and I'm showing full signal most of the time but my battery still dies pretty quick. Fastest than it should. I was wondering if this had to do with the type of network. For example if disabled LTE than would this save me battery life?
Attached is a screen shot of what I have available and what I have recently chosen as a network this evening.
Carrier is Telus in which we have 3G 4G and LTE available. At my home location LTE is not available yet.

It shouldn't matter to much unless the signal is bad. The first one that has LTE is basically everything, the one you have is usually 4g HSPA... Then GSM only would mean only calls and text messages.

Hummmm, I know nothing about this. I'm out in the country. My 4G symbol has the LTE next to it. I looked under Networks/Preferred network mode and Global is selected. Rarely leave Texas much less the country so I'm thinking I don't need that? My other choices are LTE/CDMA and SSM/UMTS. I must not be on the same screen as the OP.
