It's hard to imagine a good reason for doing this. LTE is a power hungry mode and you'd end up with no service when 3G was available but LTE was not. Nevertheless you can set the band preference to LTE in the service mode menu. I don't believe that there is any explicit setting to set LTE exclusively unless you leave your phone in test mode, locked on one channel, which would have substantial drawbacks.

You could look into apps that claim to do what you want. I don't know how effective they might actually be.

LTE / 4G isn't always available so you would actually be without a data connection when it drops out of range, be it for bandwidth restrictions on the network side or simply bad coverage, dropping down to a heightened H+ or even 3G would mean a consistent connection instead of actually just losing your network.

Not a great idea i'm afraid.

Leaving it on a switch is the best method.

Imo it's also a bad idea, but if you really want to, there's an Xposed module. It's only for the G900F though.
CURRENT DEVICE:

Phone: SAMSUNG SM-G900F
Firmware: Stock ANG9(XEF)
Rooted: Yes
Recovery: PhilZ recovery v6.26.6
Kernel: Stock
Other info: Xposed with lots of cool modules(credits to the creators )


Love this phone more than all the ones I had before COMBINED. If you're not sure wether to buy this phone or not, I recommend you do.

And remember to have a look at this if you are a noob and/or curious what might be behind this link.
