iPad mini and Nexus 7 are most coveted tablet in the market. And if you have been wondering which one is the toughest amidst them then according to the drop test conducted, iPad mini is more sturdy.
iPad mini was even pitched against iPad and surprisingly it emerged to be stronger.
As reported by ibn live the three devices were handled by a machine, and dropped at the same time from the same height. There are three tests in all, carried out by a protection plan provider, Square Trade.
In the first test, every tablet was dropped on its corner; in the second, it was made to land on its face. In the third, it was dunked under water for 10 seconds.
In the first test, the iPad mini came out the least unscathed with only minor aesthetic aberrations, with no cracks visible on the screen. The Nexus 7 did have some cracks, but looked a lot better than the full sized iPad, which suffered the most in the corner drop test.
In the second test, the Nexus 7 did the best, and had only minor cracks, while the iPad mini was left worse for wear, and so was the third generation iPad, which suffered the most amount of damage.
In the third test, the three tablets are dunked in water for 10 seconds and upon removal, the iPad mini fares the best, as it works properly without any issues. The regular sized iPad faced issues with the home button after being submerged in water, while the Nexus 7 was declared unresponsive by the tester.
