Benchmarks A comment on the recent article about the Bali release of Googles WebM tools (libvpx) claimed that one of the biggest problems facing the adoption of WebM video was the slow speed of the encoder as compared to x264. This article sets out to benchmark the encoder against x264 to see if this is indeed true and if so, how significant the speed difference really is.

Then why do Symbian phones typically last much more than Android/iOS ones on battery, even at similar connectivity settings ?

The screen does have a role to play, but twice the screen area does not explain a 1.5 day vs 4.5 days difference alone. Software also has a role to play there. Faster, more modern hardware consumes more power when it runs at full speed, but theoretically less power when running at low speed...
