This is where a top ten list of tablets and smartphones have been put through the test and an article on The Telegraph gives us reason to believe the iPad Mini is the highest in regards to the most breakable gadget. Apple products do not fare too well in the water damage test as the iPad Air comes a close second, while the Nexus 7.1 came third then the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, with the Nexus 7.2 coming in as the most resilient of the bunch.
