The degree of relevance obviously increases if the person posting the screenshot gives as much info about the scenario in which that performance was achieved, however.

Just a matter of balancing which services you want vs. the battery efficiency you want to achieve. Maps can be a battery hog, especially if you use Google Now and are in a low-signal area with poor data signal, however I've never really found Google Talk to make that much of a difference.

When I'm at home on wifi, my battery lasts incredibly long -- I've gone close to 48 hours on a single charge. At work in my office, however, with horrible signal and wifi to connect to, my phone is often near dead by lunch time even if I start the day on a full charge.
Under normal conditions, screen time is probably gonna be the biggest consumer of power, however if your data signal is low, and you've apps trying to access data, that will eat your battery VERY quickly.
