What will happen if you drop your iPad or the Nexus 7 on the floor or on water? Of-course your heart will stop… Other than that? What will happen to the devices? Will they survive? Will they shatter or will they short-circuit and die? We are going to find out…
Square Trade have just drop-tested an iPad and a Google‘s new Nexus 7 tablet! First they dropped both the tablets on ground… Then they let them fall from a bench… Finally, they dropped them in a bath tub! A bath tub with water!!!
From the first drop test, the Nexus 7 received only a small amount of scratches on the back cover and slightly damaged a corner. The iPad didn’t receive much damage on the back but its screen cracked!
In the next test, Nexus 7 survived with tiny scratches on the back. Nothing much to notice. But the iPad’s screen got damaged on a corner.
The last test… The water test! In this test they dropped both the tablets while playing a video. After the drop, the iPad is still working but the sounds are gone. Incredibly the Nexus 7 survived this test and worked even before the test! So, clearly the winner is the Nexus 7! The little guy won!
Warning : Do Not Try This at HOME! (Unless you have money to buy more tablets!)
