Just a estimate is fine.

Do you get good reception where you're at? Reception plays a role in your battery life!
Also have you calibrated your battery? This could possibly be a battery calibration issue. I'll play some NOVA on mine just to see what my battery drain is, should be relatively close. (Evo 3D)

EDIT: Apparently I dont have NOVA installed, i'm gonna use Spiderman 3D instead. Should still be close in terms of the power it requires to play the game.
very good point if you have your phone rooted and have clockwork recovery installed you can reset your battery stats. charge it to 100% and leave it for another hour. then reset the stats and it should help alot

I really don't know. I kinda refrain from browsing or gaming right now since it totally destroys the battery.

I like to sneek in some games/browsing between/before/after school, so like call it ~1.5hrs total during the day.

Just got done with 10 mins of gaming, went down to 84%. So roughly a 16% drain. Its too close to really base anything off of that IMO.

Also after you wipe your battery stats. Let the phone die and then fully charge. Take it off the charger and don't plug it in until it dies again, then fully charge. This is the method I always use when swapping ROM's.

Oh and you're using stock rom/kernal right now right?

I know for a fact the iPhone will give you better battery life. I use my iPhone for work and the Evo 3D for personal use, and can definitely tell you the iPhone will have better battery life gaming. Not sure yet how it compares to a custom rom/kernal as I havent slapped one on yet since I got the iPhone for work.

I use both a custom kernal and ROM, I get slightly better battery life with them over stock.

iPhone does this when you put it to sleep. I keep both my wifi and 3G on, on my iPhone 4 and I usually have anywhere from 30 to 50 percent at the end of the day. I would say get the iPhone! I love mine. And you can always jailbreak it if you want it to be a little cooler

Yeah you definitely need to make sure you calibrate the battery everytime you put in a new kernal/rom. High chances of the battery calibration is off.

I've never gotten full battery potential until I calibrate the battery after a new ROM flash.

I keep almost everything off

I have been struggling with this battery for over 6 months, I have tried EVERYTHING.

This battery calibration is my last ditch effort.
