Nexus 7 vs. iPad mini examination with drop test

By Updated on

When it comes to comparing the Nexus 7 vs. iPad mini it seems each tablet has a certain niche, which includes some Apple fans explaining the wider display is much better for landscape viewing and iOS 6 might be less open but they prefer the extra security. Some of these views don’t go down well with the Android user, and we can easily see the Nexus 7 price is not only cheaper but brings better specs as well. Some people know if they’d rather own an Apple or Google device right away, but others need to do a little research after being unsure what tablet is best from the 7-8 inch Nexus 7 and iPad mini.

Nexus 7 vs. iPad mini debate – Today we wanted to highlight a debate we recently read that involves the Nexus 7 and iPad mini, which saw two MacWorld editors debating what tablet is better? The article can be seen here, and focuses on set areas for each tablet. These include the iPad mini and Nexus 7 screen, weight and measurements, storage, and cameras. You can see each author has a favorite although they also point out some lacking features for both tablets, which includes the lack of rear-facing camera on the Nexus 7. Have a read of the debate, if you haven’t already, and then let us know what you think about the two points of view? Do you feel the Nexus 7 needs a rear-facing camera?

Apple iPad mini vs. Google Nexus 7 drop test – this isn’t a feature that is important to every gadget buyer, but for some of us we love to know if our new tablet or smartphone can handle a drop. We’ve embedded two videos below that perform a drop test of the Nexus 7 and iPad mini, and then compare each to see which handles knocks better. It is amazing how much work some reviewers put into a drop test that is certainly seen in the first video. The test involves drops and water submersion with the iPad 3 as well, which received the most damage in drop tests. The second video drops the Nexus 7 and iPad mini just like you might when walking down the street, so this review involves a lot less preparation but still reveals what happens if you’d drop either device onto concrete.

After reading the above debate and watching the drop tests would you choose iPad Mini or Nexus 7? If you want to watch a visual review of these tablets then see our earlier article here, which features a video review.
