I get 8 hours of battery life using LTE on my iPhone 5. The price of 4G service is identical to what I was paying for 3G and coverage, while not identical, blankets almost my entire city of 1.5 million. The speeds are tremendous; much faster than even my home Internet.

3G (HSPA+): 5 Mbit down
Home Wi-Fi: 8-10 Mbit down
4G/LTE: 20-25 Mbit down

For comparison's sake, a friend who owns the original HTC Evo 4G (released 2010), gets about 3 to 4 hours of use per day. He keeps it constantly plugged in at his desk. EDIT: After some reading, it seems the Evo 4G doesn't even have a 4G antenna. Huh. Just a marketing term, I guess.
