New Nexus 7 (2013) Drop Test Shows its Poor Build Quality

A drop test done by Android Authority shows how the new Nexus 7 (also called 2013 Nexus 7 or second-generation Nexus 7) handles unexpected drops.  The drop test consisted of four drops, simulating the most common drops done by users.   The drop test showed that the second-generation Nexus 7 proves to be more fragile than the first generation.  This may be because the device is thinner than the original or it could be a poor build quality.  After only the first drop, the new Nexus 7 failed to turn on, rendering it unusable, although there were no visible aesthetic damages on the tablet.

Further drops only damaged the tablet more, showing ugly cracks on the display. The new Nexus 7 is a lovely device with a gorgeous 1080p screen but if this drop test is any indication, Google and Asus definitely cut a few corners to achieve the cheap $229 price point.  And it appears that the build quality is one of those areas where Google and Asus compromised. The other specs are still impressive, though, and that includes a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera.

Here is the drop test featuring the second generation Nexus 7 (2013).
