One thing I just can’t do is try and test durability by deliberately damaging a new product.  Thankfully for our sake, there are those that don’t have that same sentiment and go to lengths to show the damage that devices might ensue should they be dropped.  In the following tests, Android Authority and SquareTrade put to test the limits of the Nexus 7 and the iPad mini.  Both devices are subjected to multiple drops onto hard surfaces and the SquareTrade video also adds a water test to see which devices fares best.  Watch the videos below and let us know which you would buy.
