Over LTE? I don't doubt excellent hspa+ battery life, but until a custom rom is available us LTE guys are kinda stuck...

Does this seem right? I'm sure its just new phone syndrome but my battery has been barely lasting 8 hours.

Looks like your screen has been on for over 2 hours? Is that true?

This.

I noticed significant drain sitting with WiFi enabled (but not connected) and on an LTE network.

I got the phone on the 15th,(from canada) and since then I had the phone heavily used, 12 hrs of netflix, 19hrs of Pandora and 23 hours talk time, today is the 22nd and I still have 54% battery!

If you haven't already, download BetterBatteryStats from the market and keep an eye on "Partial Wakelocks" to see of anything is keeping your phone from deep sleep. My first charge was horrible. Went into battery stats and saw that my awake time was constant. BetterBatteryStats let me see and close these programs. Battery improved 50%.

Yes my battery life is with LTE in Atlanta.

There are a few issues with the phone but battery life definitely is not one of them. I'm at 55% after being unplugged for 31 hours. GPS and 4G have been on as well.
