Something is horribly wrong, then. LTE just launched in Aiken, SC where I live, and it went from 8 mbps to 50 mbps. Huge difference. And I don't notice a hit to my battery life at all. Now, that said, there's an easy battery fix for you. Go into your settings, choose General, then Cellular Data. Turn off LTE, and now you're back to always using 4G.
