Not sure if its a fluke or not, but at the verizon store the performance was = for the phones. FYI verizon stores have repeaters installed to guarantee best coverage. My work has repeaters installed as well and for some reason I get worse performance for lte here than at home. 10mb at work and 12-15 mb down at home. Thunderbolt was getting 16-17 mb at work and 10-12 at home. Upload speed doesn't seem to change much at all 3-5mb upload at home or at work for both phones. Where I did notice a clear difference was wifi performance at home. Wifi signal was definitley better on the thunderbolt.
I should mention there is no real world noticeble difference, probably due to the upload spead beeing the same accross the board for both phones. 4g does not drop at all anymore for me which makes no sense since the signal was better on the thunderbolt. I can imagine there might be a noticeable difference if you use the hotspot feature for 8 devices, but I won't ever have a use for that unless for some strange reason internet at work drops off.
