Previous Gen lte devices have sucked current at almost twice the levels it takes 3g. So on 3g you could surf the web for say 5 hours but on LTE it was 2.5.

I'm wondering with this different chipset how is current draw on LTE now? For those of you that can compare to a previous LTE device. Bonus if you use a app to record current draws while surfing/streaming.

A lot naturally depends on signal, if its getting a solid signal or weak it will be more work on the device to maintain then there is what your doing too.... General surfing, intensive picture & video downloading, etc..

I really believe the battery life should be better than what we have seen in the past, and since this is out of the box today any battery tests/results really aren't fair at least for another day or two of a few charge/discharge cycles to properly condition and cycle the new battery.
