    Juice defender shuts off data when the screen is off.

    Turn off 4G and use 3G if not downloading or streaming. Have screen time out set to 30 seconds or less. Screen on time is usually the biggest battery drain.

    The biggest help for me was turning facebook off. It doesn't refresh. Also, no google now.

    Try using the app LTE on off. Switch it to CDMA auto PRL for 3G.

    One factor also can be an issue is where your located. If your area has marginal LTE or worse yet your drive takes you through areas where LTE comes and goes, then your battery life is going to be worse that someone who is in an area with strong LTE.

    i don't like the "Juice Defender" type of apps because i don't like giving up control to such apps. i would rather manually toggle how my phone works rather than have some app decide when and how to limit my data. when you have a third party app control your data flow you can have unpredictable results such as delayed calls/voicemails/texts/notifications/updates. i want to control the data flow.

    good luck.
