  • The iPad lineup is getting pretty crowded lately with the iPad, the iPad Air, the iPad

  • Pro, and this new 2019 iPad Mini that Apple just released.

  • They all do pretty much the same thing.

  • To get any real work done, you'll still need a laptop or a desktop computer, but sometimes

  • it's nice to have a bigger screen to read or watch movies on.

  • Today though, we'll be assessing the durability and build quality of the littlest iPad.

  • You already know how the iPad Pro handled this durability test.

  • Let's hope the Apple's iPad Mini is built a bit stronger.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • You might be thinking to yourself, 'Man, that iPad Mini looks kind of old.

  • What year is it?'

  • And you're right.

  • The exterior design hasn't changed much in the last 7 years.

  • It has that lightning port on the bottom instead of USB-C, but does come with a fast charger

  • in the box...something that Apple has yet to include with their iPhones.

  • The overall appearance of the new iPad Mini is the same as it was back in 2012, with its

  • large bezels and curved edges, but if it works, it works.

  • Let's start with the scratch test.

  • I'll use my set of Mohs mineral picks to check the hardness level of the front surface.

  • We've seen clear plastic screens scratch at a level 3.

  • Glass screens would scratch at a level 6, and sapphire screens, like the Kyocera DuraForce

  • Pro 2 will scratch at a level 8 or 9.

  • The iPad Mini 5 looks like it's covered in tempered glass since we see the industry standard

  • scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7.

  • The 7 megapixel selfie camera is up here in the top Texas-sized bezel protected with the

  • same scratch resistant glass.

  • Little guy is unable to do face unlock, but does film in 1080p.

  • The bottom bezel includes some hardware we haven't seen since 2015 – a physical clicky

  • home button.

  • Yeah, it's still scratch resistant and does that fingerprint scanning thing.

  • Apple must just have a bunch of old parts they're trying to get rid of with this new

  • release.

  • The gold colored 2019 iPad Mini is made from metal, along with both of the volume buttons

  • up here at the top.

  • Speaking of old school hardware, let's welcome back the headphone jack.

  • Apple trying to milk an old design for more money does have it's perks for the rest of

  • us.

  • Maybe they'll bring back the iPhone SE this year too.

  • The iPad Mini does have one little microphone hole up at the top, but we'll come back to

  • this later.

  • We have more metal over here on the left side of the tablet.

  • You can see that silver glinting through under the gold anodizing.

  • So far, no big issues.

  • The bottom of the iPad Mini has dual stereo speakers and the same lightning port that

  • Apple's been using for the past seven years.

  • We should see an update to USB-C at some point.

  • One thing I am glad to see though is that there's no weak points along either of the

  • iPad Mini sides.

  • The longer and thinner something is, the more prone it might be to breaking like the iPad

  • Pro.

  • With it's microphone cutout on one side, and wireless charging dock for the Apple pencil

  • on the other side, it made an already fragile piece of tech even weaker.

  • That's probably why people were getting brand new tablets bent right out of the box.

  • The iPad Mini doesn't have any of these builtin deformities on the long sides, just the one

  • microphone hole up at the top on the short side.

  • Hopefully this helps the iPad Mini survive the rest of this test.

  • The 8 megapixel 1080p capable rear facing camera is a circular inlay with no protruding

  • camera lens.

  • Apple doesn't mention sapphire on their website for this iPad Mini, but judging by my diamond

  • selector tool and scratches at levels 6, 7, and 8, they're using the same material they've

  • always been using.

  • No surprises there.

  • One thing that has improved with this year's model is the front of the tablet is now compatible

  • with the Apple pencil 1 - also 4 years old at this point.

  • (Everything sold separately.)

  • The back side of the tablet is also compatible with the Apple pencil if you believe in yourself,

  • but I recommend something a little sharper.

  • I asked on Twitter a few days ago what people wanted to learn from Art Class with Jerry

  • and Thanos was suggested.

  • As somewhat of an expert in fine razor blade art, I'll do my best.

  • Bald guys are pretty easy to draw.

  • And here we are...Thanos eating an apple.

  • Not sure if this is pre or post universal destruction, but it looks to me like Thanos

  • did nothing wrong.

  • One thing you can add to your tablet before it gets scratched or after it gets scratched,

  • is a dbrand skin.

  • This particular skin camouflages not only the scratches, but also the Apple logo...effectively

  • debranding the tablet, making it perfectly balanced as all things should be.

  • I'll put a link in the description so you can customize your own phone or tablet.

  • Thanks to dbrand for sponsoring this video.

  • One thing that Apple changed with version 4, and subsequently this version 5, is the

  • outer glass is now glued to the LCD screen underneath it, making screen repairs quite

  • a bit more expensive.

  • Replacing the front glass on the iPad Mini 3 only cost about $20.

  • Once Apple started laminating the glass to the LCD, the repair price skyrocketed to the

  • point where people just live with cracked screens nowadays.

  • Kind of fun.

  • After about 16 seconds of intense flame, the 7.9 inch LCD pixels go black and turn off,

  • but do eventually come back to life and make a full recovery...hopefully like the Avengers

  • will recover in Endgame.

  • The iPad Pro failed my bend test catastrophically, and it's time now to see if the miniature

  • iPad will suffer the same fate.

  • With the initial flex the tablet moves easily into an extremely compromised obtuse angle,

  • but then locks out and amazingly retains full functionality.

  • I'm impressed that Apple has found a way to defy physics.

  • The tablet is still fully functional despite the massive bend, and this isn't even a flexible

  • AMOLED display - it's an LCD.

  • I'll try bending the iPad Mini 5 back the other direction, and it pops into place...mostly,

  • but does not allow any flex towards the screen size.

  • It still surprisingly doesn't shatter or stop working.

  • There is some adhesive separation between the glass and the frame.

  • Yeah, Thanos has some curves, but some people are into that.

  • Apple definitely wins this round.

  • That was quite possible the biggest bend I've ever seen on a device that still survived.

  • The iPad Mini is way more durable than the iPad Pro.

  • I'm impressed.

  • Hopefully this isn't an omen of Thanos surviving in Endgame.

  • Tell me your predictions for the movie down in comments below.

  • Hit that subscribe buttonit's free.

  • And then see hat your phone looks like with a dbrand skin.

  • Link in the description.

  • Thanks a ton for watching.

  • And I'll see you around.
