Biased Results

I saw this video today of a guy drop testing a Google Nexus 7, an iPad mini and an iPad3. Well, my first thought was that the dropping test done on this video isn't really a comprehensive test. To get real results you should drop test more than one of each of the devices and gather more data.

Here is the video by the way:


Even the conclusion on this video is bad, "...the iPad mini held up best." What? How much did apple pay you? The only one that survived all tests was the Nexus. Both apple products had their screens shattered completely, while the Nexus took minor damage. My conclusion from this video is that the Nexus is the best, durability-wise. But I will say it again, you need a lot of drop tests and water submersions to truly get conclusive results.
