Keep in mind these where streaming so as you can see by the differences in time just going between wifi and 3G the streaming part has to account for a decent chunk of power, also remember the resolution of the video will have an effect on the power consumption, as the video card has to work harder for higher res videos.
You have just confirmed to me, that most manufacturers put crap batteries into their phones! (anything under 2000mah is a waste of time) 10.5 hours of streaming video is amazing for a phone! my stats were reading from the memory card with everything turned off. Again, I lose 2 1/2 hours when watching HD content due to resolution and rendering.

It amazes me how everyone wants to compete with apple and puts the best tech they can in a device and make it as small as possible, then skimp on the power source to make it truly useable??? Rather than shave a few mm off a device, add a few mm and give us BIGGER batteries, please!
