You haven't calibrated it yet, but do you really think you will get 8 hours of LTE?

    Do you guys believe Apple when they say 8 hours of LTE browsing? Seems like a ridiculously long time on LTE...

    ... or is Apple just lying and basing that 8-hour figure off of the most ideal conditioins (0% brightness and going to new pages every 15 minutes so it doesn't use much battery)?

    Some say you do, some say you don't ;)

    The main question though is about the 8 hours of battery life on LTE internet browsing.

    Is the battery in general better than the 4S? Because the 4S is nowhere near the hours advertised.

    streaming music doesn't use much juice conpared to browsing.

    Exactly. The screen being on takes around 70+% of your battery usage. That's why I wonder about actual amount of time you can internet browse on LTE.
