How secure should walls tiles be?

I understand that once the thinset drys, you shouldn't be able to pull these off the wall with your fingers, but how strong should the bond be - in other words, if I say, used a screwdriver or a little pry tool how much force should it take?

The tile should not come off in one piece.
