Lol, it's HTC fault the club was shot at!

HTC should send him a free phone, for assisting in marketing, but not out of pity lol.

If anything the club should.

Hopefully that was a troll. A .50 cal will blow you to pieces with EASE. Maybe if your holding a sheet of depleted uranium you might survive.

Only problem is that it wasnt bullet proof. Clearly putting that battery back into the phone that got shot will not give you a working phone. Market it as able to stop a bullet, maybe... but as bullet proof, thats a straight lie.

Yeah because these'll become useful to people in a rough neighbourhood that can surprisingly afford a HTC. Not to mention it's a very small thing, the likely hood of a shot to the thigh or the chest and hitting this battery is extremely slim except if you were being attacked by an assassin and knew the key parts of the body's internal bleeding after a bullet impact to the heart, then fine.

Many other phones would have likely stopped the same bullet.

Depends on range and a whole host of other factors, but yeah, the idea of a phone stopping a .50 BMG at any range one could reliably be aimed at you is fairly ludicrous.

The whole story is about the luck this guy had when the bullet hit is phone, not somewhere else.

No one is seriously suggesting phones be carried as a type of personal armor.
