Battery

Doesn't LTE/4G kill battery life? When I had an EVO, the battery would drain within hours with the 4G antenna active. I would never use it for this reason alone.

Engadget review of Droid Charge indicates the phone gets great battery life even with LTE on. Apparently they fixed the issue or something.

Newer chipsets. But 4G battery life should get even better once phones get combi 3G/4G chips. Also LTE and WiMAX are data only so they require 2G/3G for voice. Having two radios running at once isn't great for battery life.

Once LTE gets voice support you should see a great improvement in battery life of phones.
