    Contact Apple about that. Ask them: "How did you test the battery life? I wanna do it also!"

    Yes, id like a app that measures and logs power consumption of the battery in whatever you would use to measure that in amps or whatever

    I have read that Apple's testing was done in normal conditions, so brightness just in the middle, wifi off

    Apple gets the max numbers out. So they turn off anything that will consume power:
    -WiFi OFF
    -Bluetooth OFF
    -Brightness MIN
    -Volume ON (Max; can't have video without volume)
    -Airplane Mode ON
    -Push OFF
    -Multitasking
    -Video/iPod App ONLY

    That is how they most likely test it... They may turn the volume down to 0 too.

    If you really want to test it that BAD, you should merge 3 or 4 videos in 1, and play it.
