    Well there ain't an app for that XD
    Thought it was pretty cool how phones can stand up to that kind of force
    Also, it might help the EVO get a reputations back after that on exploded.
    hough it's hardly a reason to buy a phone.

    Awesome! I hope my iPhone4 can do the same [​IMG]

    ...well, maybe it'd be better to directly hope that I won't ever find myself in a shooting [​IMG]

    i wonder what phone it really was.
    it's certain it was an HTC phone(seen a photo of an HTC battery with a dent where it was hit), but i read it on a different site first where they said it was a droid incredible.

    I heard about that and saw the video on the HTC Facebook page(I love my HTC). Hope that never happens to me but if it does my HTC will jump in front of the bullet and protect me. [​IMG]

    The battery deflected the shot twice... The strongest area in any device is it's battery.

    ^ i was merely pointing out that aside from avid mustache collectors, mythbusters are very crappy scientist.

    You really don't watch them enough do you? They have really changed the way they do the show.

    @nando, For your information, Mythbusters is the only "science" show I ever watch, its just good.


    Another one of these? These kind of cases have been popping like hell recently, *insert a smartphone here* saved a man/woman etc. But its cool to know that if you ever have a HTC or iPod/iPad, you can stop bullets with it.

    I hope he's compensated for his phone. [​IMG]

    If an iPhone saved his life I wouldn't particularly bother. [​IMG]
