    I have been one of the lucky ones getting 20-22 hours of use out of my 8x regardless of whether I'm at home or the office. I live in one of the far-out, more rural areas of the country that have not been blessed with LTE yet, so I only get 3G (one to three bars). However, when I went to visit my parents for Thanksgiving I was getting fast LTE coverage (two to five bars, depending where I was), I noticed my phone was barely draining at all. Using my phone moderately, when I'd get back home at night, I would still have 70ish percent left with over 24 hours of time remaining; this happened each day I was there. Upon returning home, I went right back to the 20-22 hours of battery life again. So, I guess my phone is far more efficient on Verizon's LTE than their 3G. Anybody else having a similar experience?

    That is correct. In LTE if you have good coverage you can get better battery life than in 3G.

    Thanks. For some reason I was under the impression LTE used more power than 3G.
