    My phone is defaulted to Global. Would I save some battery by changing to CDMA/LTE/EVDO instead? Or does it not really matter? Is there any benefit to keeping it set to Global?

    I have been wondering this myself. The big red V is having network issues in my area (still not fixed 6 hours later, BTW) and part of the troubleshooting via phone support was to set Preferred Network Mode to LTE/CDMA/EVDO and restart. It has been in Global mode since day one. So does it make a difference which mode is used in the US?

    Yes you will. How much depends on the apps and widgets you use but it doubled the life of mine
