ipad mini drop test

Our international man of gadget destruction is back!

In September, Darcy LaCouvee travelled to bustling Hong Kong to get the iPhone 5 and pitch it in a ruthless drop test against the flagship of the Android armada, the Galaxy S3. Suffice it to say, we didn’t like how that test ended, but luckily the mighty Note 2 saved face for the Android camp just a couple of weeks later.

Now Darcy is back at it, but this time he drop tested two tablets, the category defining Nexus 7 and iPad mini. Both of these tablets can easily be handled on the go, but their size makes them somehow susceptible to accidents. Unless you are really careful (or use a beefy case), it can be easy to damage your precious device, with those shatter-prone Gorilla glass screens especially at risk.

So here we are, trying to show you what can happen when the unthinkable occurs. But we won’t ruin it for you. Just watch the video or check out the image gallery for a complete damage report.
