    I know some of us are looking for that sweet sweet LTE but here is CNET.com's take on it, why we might not want what we think we want in the iPhone 5.

    Do you think they have a point or would you still prefer to have the 4G LTE?

    I think they pretty much addressed those issues in the Keynote from I can tell
    Going without LTE was not an option

    This is what happens when consumers get what they want

    This article was written before the announcement. Apple claims that they have been able to better the iPhone 4S battery life with the new iPhone 5.
    I remains to be seen if this is true but Apple is usually pretty good about battery life estimates.

    I saw a screenshot and it showed you can turn LTE off

    According to Apple, there isn't a big difference between the battery life on 3G or LTE - at least according to their tech specs. If they are able to deliver that then there is no compromise.

    I'm sure you will be able to turn LTE off. We used to turn off 3G at football games because everyone in the stadium was hogging up the 3G network. 2G worked just fine.
