LTE really doesn't live up to the hype. The LTE chip at this time will suck your battery dry in less than 2 hours. IMHO Apple is waiting for the LTE chip to be much more efficient, just like they waited for 3G (between the original iPhone and the iPhone 3GS)like the Edge original iPhone.

I just sure hope Apple uses the new Qualcomm chipset. This way the battery will not drain the battery hen not using LTE. IMHO anyone that sings the praises of an LTE phone really doesn't tell the truth.
