It makes me laugh how quickly someone will make a statement about something they know NOTHING about. Opinions are one thing (I think Men look ridiculous wearing them, just what I think) but try to find out some facts before bashing someone.

android authority guy needs a slap.

i have nothing against these tests but this guy can't even drop something properly...it's the only thing he has to get right! prick.

add that to his generally obnoxious 'bro' behaviour and we have grade-a idiocy.

This is the definition of stupidity

Really this is the most stupid test i have ever seen in my life , what do you think if something made of glass dropped down, what will happen to it

So please provide us a theory or a model that can support your model, unless go back to school .

Instead of buying 3 tablets and damage it like that for just showing us how much this world full with idiots, go and give this money for the red-cross since your country needs help after sandy hurricane.

The Android Authority one's are not very controlled tests.

All handheld, varies in height between devices, even used the same device between some of the tests. Doesn't tell us much.

SquareTrade's is much more controlled. They have devices that reduce variability in height and how it's dropped and use a new device for each test. The face drop actually drops on the face, imagine that!

I think it is really just out there to be more of a "viral video" and less of a real "experiment" or "durability test"

I do have to give them credit, even when the Android device does not hold up as well as an Apple one, they do not try to hide it.

When I see things like this, I feel like the people involved are idiots. Any non-ruggedized device breaks when dropped. It's just throwing money down the drain which, frankly, could be used to do a lot more good, such as providing relief for some people who just lost their homes in a hurricane.

I don't get ****** drop tests. I just don't. These people think metal and glass will defy all rules of physics because it's made by Apple?? CRAZY! Not to mention whenever something drops, the environmental variables will not be the same. Hence, a different outcome.

What a waste of time, money and perfectly good internet bandwidth!

It wouldn't surprise me at all if they actually did the "dunk test" first then used the same devices for the drop tests- thus ruining only 3 devices instead of 6 (or 9). Controlling the variable of time (when the devices were dropped in relation to each other) is probably the least important, relative to everything else.

There were too many loose variables all the way around for this to be remotely valid for anything other than YouTube clicks.

You don't need a Nexus 7 dunk test for it to be non responsive. It's android. LOL

Most important test of all=Epic Victory. I'm buying one. Just because of this. Wonder if the 16GB survives better than the 32? The weight distribution might be different.

The really important question is not whether it survives a drop test. Rather...

Does it blend?

You don't say. As compared to half way. Sorry, it just seemed to be a funny clarification you made.

Major fail by Apple. Expect to see neutral buoyancy feature in iPhone 6.

These so called "Tests" are a complete waste of resources.
We know the consequences of drops to the floor or in water.
Please stop with these tests!

Oh no... Apple made a bo-bo.. (and what a Bo-bo.)

It cracks big.... Bet everyone will jump on this one.

I assume the glass is not as tough as it was then?

My worst electronics fall was when I fumbled a Sharp MiniDisc player at the top of the stairs and watched in horror as it fell down the entire stairway, bouncing all along the way off the carpet.

Of course, this particular machine was built like a tank and survived completely unscathed. Whew!
That was an awesome player for its time,got it Christmas of '98

Lol..

No wonder.. This could explain Apple's constant shortage of their products. Everyone buys them for drop tests.
