Apple gear vs Google Nexus stable drop test (video)
In this series of drop testing, Square Trade pitted Apple devices, like the iPhone 5, iPad 4 and the iPad mini, against Google's Nexus stable of Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

Apple's gear mostly passed the drop test from various heights, whereas the only Nexus device that survived largely unscathed was the 10" Google tablet made by Samsung, while the iPad 4 bruised on the corners and the screen cracked a hairline.

As far as phones go, we'd have to bear in mind that the iPhone 5 has a 4" display, whereas the Nexus 4 is 4.7-incher, whose larger surface is more susceptible to fragility. The Nexus 10, however, held very good, so you can have this drop test in mind if you are on the market for one.
