I actually had that in mind with this phone... to kill LTE when I did not need it.
I have done some testing with that but the results are subjective because I just did not do it properly... I only have one phone so I can't turn LTE off and let it sit there for a day... you get it...

When I did turn LTE off for most of a day I gained like 30 extra minutes.
That's not really much.... but again my usage patterns for that day surely affected that.

I had a Thunderbolt... if you remember that phone it was a battery killer.
4-5 hours tops on that thing... it was really bad.
