    Default Got LTE for the first time this weekend!

    Had a trip down to Quincy Boston MA this weekend! Damn lte is fast! But it also destroyed my battery! Not sure it's a good trade off. Anyone else agree? This weekend I will going from Vermont to Ohio! Another good road trip.

    LTE will drain your battery. That's why I prefer HSPA+ 4G.

    Agreed! I like my HSPA+. Very fast still and much better on the battery life! But as the years go by LTE will be less of a battery drain too I guess. But LTE is pretty fast!

    LTE is pretty awesome. Just manage your app and alerts and your phone will be fine

    Depends on the phone. My One X got great battery life. Easily as good as my Nexus 4.

    Should have added to my post that there are new LTE chips in the works. The current LTE chipset is huge, which accounts for the first Verizon phones being so big - you need a larger area to dissipate the heat. It also ushered in the big phone fad. Also, the current chipset is a battery hog. But, the new chips that are being tested and might be released in phones as early as the 4th quarter are much smaller, run much cooler and don't drain nearly as much juice. When these chips start making their way into the new phones it will really give a boost to demand for LTE.

    The only thing I wish I could do is turn LTE off. Its not much of a need. Nice if I was streaming videos or music or something. My HSPA+ is fast enough! (10 megs in VT!)
