Category: iPad Mini

Ever since I purchased my iPad mini, I’ve found it to be much easier to carry with me during daily outings than my iPad. The lighter weight and smaller size makes getting it into one of my small bags a breeze, even with it in a case. If you’ve got an iPad mini like me and are looking for a way to protect it while on-the-go or at home, you won’t want to miss this giveaway. Today we have partnered with the folks at Snugg to offer our readers a chance to win one of three iPad mini cases.

We reviewed The Snugg iPad Mini PU Leather Case Cover and Flip Stand last week and rated it a 4.5 out of 5 stars, which earned it the PadGadget Recommended stamp. You can read our full review for more details or a brief description from the review below:

“The sleeve has grooves to support multiple standing positions – viewing and typing. Inside the sleeve, there is a clever nubuck covered elastic hand strap, to make holding it up easier on you. There is also a stylus loop at the top so that it’s always right where you need it. And yet another feather is the magnetic close at both the top and bottom to keep the sleeve held down when not in use.”

Drop test: Nexus 7 vs. iPad mini

There are many videos of brand new gadgets getting smashed and destroyed for no reason other than to see what happens and maybe to gain a moment of fame on YouTube. It seems completely unnecessary and a total waste. The fact is, though, electronics are destroyed all the time by people who don’t really want them to be.

If you are really accident-prone, then chances are you have dropped your smartphone or tablet already. When it comes to making your next purchase decision, seeing what device is most likely to hold up to your inadvertent torture is important.

As such, if you are trying to figure out whether to buy a Nexus 7 or an iPad mini, there is a new video that you might want to check out above. The website Android Authority has posted a comparative look at how each tablet is able to hold up to various drops from about 4.5 feet.

After the first drop on to their sides, the iPad mini held up quite well while the Nexus 7 already started to show significant damage. After the second drop, this time on their backs, the Nexus 7 became completely non-functional while the iPad mini still worked despite showing severe damage.

The iPad mini also still worked after the third and most intense part of the drop test: face-down. The Nexus 7 ended up with more scratches and dents. So the moral of the story is that if you are going to drop your tablet from 4.5 feet high more than a couple of times, you are going to have a messed up tablet no matter what, but the iPad mini will be more likely to still work.

The fact the iPad mini costs over 50% more than a Nexus 7, it’s not surprising to find it’s a little bit more resilient.
