Independent extended warranty provider SquareTrade conducted a drop test comparing the two best tablet on market, iPad 3 and Google’s Nexus 7 tablet. While the glass on iPad 3 makes it look pretty, the plastic on the Nexus 7 makes it more resistant to damage when drop. The Nexus 7 outperformed the iPad 3, even in the water test.
After dropping both tablets in the water, Google’s Nexus 7 was still functioning displaying video and sound. The iPad 3 only shows the video but the speaker gets damage.
