There are many factors that affect battery life, and many ways to test it.

One way to test is in a very special, very expensive lab, (like the kind we showed in our recent article about Sprint's labs.) That's the only way to eliminate variations and produce consistent results.

The other way to test is to simulate real-world usage as much as possible. That will generally expose very good or very poor battery battery life, and we feel it's the most helpful to people. But the results are rough estimates, and can be somewhat inconsistent, because we're dealing with real-world network conditions, which vary by the microsecond.

With that said, there are some factors that I can think of that would explain the differences. LTE is battery-hu...
