Agreed, LTE for me isn't the battery killer, I'm on it all day everyday.

I've used in the past JD on other handsets and found them to suck the power.

On the snapdragon S4 devices lte radio is built on the chip and uses less power than Verizon lte because there's just one radio vs two. Vzw phones have to fall back to evdo and use cdma for calls. So far this means two radios. I don't know if this changes with the S4 based Vzw phones.

Has anyone else noticed that when you're making a call LTE service goes away? It drops back to normal 4g.

Pretty sure it does this to save batter you don't need LTE to make calls

I found because I unlock my phone every couple minutes, that juice defender toggling all my signal services is what drained the hell out of my phone. Just uninstall it. Turn off mobile data when you don't use it, and WiFi when you can, and your battery life will be golden. I usually get about 3 hours of screen on time. Which isn't bad IMO.

LTE is just for data at the moment no VoLTE yet.

I ran my HOX without Juice Defender for the first few days that I had it to get a sense for stock battery life. It was great and I was excited to get even more duration from it with JD. After a few days using JD and getting much worse battery life, I removed it and was back to normal.

Note: I live in a non-LTE area.

I agree with this. No one should use Juice Defender!

Juice defender just turns off data when the screen is off... Which can be done manually anyways.

Or am I missing something?

Juice defender is just another app that will help drain the battery

Download DX toolbox and you can turn off background apps and other advanced settings.
