Still had around 20% left. That is without the stamina mode on or any other battery saving features.

This phone last so much longer than my ion or TL. I don't think there is an issue with battery life here.

Isn't LTE the US name for 4G?

Not quite. AT&T and T-Mobile have muddied those terms. Yes it's true 4G but they also call HSPA+ 4G.

My Note 2 lasts only 5 hours with screen on, and it has 3100mah. Most smartphones last 3-4 hours of screen time... since when average is crap ? It's just that - average, nothing special, nothing amazing.

Same here, my Note 2 on average gives me 5hrs screen on, at a push I can get slightly higher but my brightness has to be really low. Those shots above look good to me, they are without stamina mode on aren't they?

Since my iPhone 5 manages 6/7 hours. (And no I'm not a apple fanboy) 3h is rubbish! My S3 managed just over 4h and i know the Z has a bigger screen and resolution but no excuse for putting small batterys in phones that have big screens and high res.
