Cellphone stops a bullet!

Looks like a small caliber bullet was used, probably a .22, anyway talk about a 1 in a million shot.  

Yeah, had it been anything bigger then it probably would have gone clean thru. Seems like someone was having a pretty lucky day (other than being held up and shot at).

This is the second time that I've heard of an HTC device stopping a bullet. The first time was the original EVO 4G.

 

I bet you your little Galaxy couldn't do that...

wouldnt the galaxy's cover more area and still have the similar protection. It the phone was on of the iphones made with a glass back the bullet would of actually gone through with some glass :P

The galaxy line cheap plastic can't stop squat lol. The battery is what stopped the bullet with the original evo and this time with the evo 3d also.

If it is the battery that stops it then the "cheap plastic" wouldnt have an effect of it. It would be up to the battery of the phone. And gotta remember the galaxy captivate wasnt using cheap plastic, and that phone I couldnt break even when I tried to break it by throwing it on the ground.

I'm trying to think of where the Phone was when he got shot.  In his shirt pocket?

"Winter Garden Police said in an email that a clerk had just minor injuries after a robber fired a bullet at his abdomen. Police say his cellphone stopped it" http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/fla-police-cellphone-stops-bullet-fired-by-robber

 

Sounds like abdominal area.  Pry had a jacket or a hoodie, or something similar with front pockets.

    • I found some automated crash reports from a Motorola Ace.. not sure if they were from you or not, but they are bizarre. The error is a security exception claiming "insufficient location permissions" but the triggering code is the block that runs once location permissions are granted. 🤷‍♂️ EDIT: I'm guessing they are from you. The timestamps were from 5-10 minutes before your post, and it's on two identical devices.
    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday.

    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
