iPad mini endures drop test, doesn’t look so good afterwards
Happy iPad mini release day, everyone! If you purchased an iPad mini, I hope you’re enjoying every minute of having it in your hands, safe from harm and away from hard concrete.
Some other people haven’t been so lucky – even though they dropped their brand-new iPad on purpose to show you what not to do. Android Authority is back with another drop test, this time comparing the iPad mini to the Nexus 7.
Obviously, both didn’t fare very well at all; however, the iPad mini did a surprisingly better job than the Nexus 7, as it stayed on and working through all three tests. Unfortunately, the makers of this video couldn’t say the same about the original Nexus tablet.
It should go without saying that you shouldn’t try this at home: not only could you damage your $329+ purchase, but you could also potentially harm yourself or others with the shattering of the screen that is bound to happen when its glass face hits a hard, bumpy surface.[YouTube via Cult of Mac]
