Anyone measured battery savings of using 3G instead of LTE?

    The old "3.5G" is already faster than my cable internet connection. I have no need for LTE right now.
    Is LTE inherently more of a battery guzzler than the old trusty 3G connection?
    How much juice would I save if I only used 3G, just roughly. 10% 33% 50%, etc?

    I did not notice much of a difference in speed or battery drain when browsing. I think it is safe to just keep it on, unless you are worried about going over your data plan due to HD videos.
