So now the mobile feature will include
dust proof and water resistant:over 1 meter and 30 minutes
bullet proof: more than 100 meters
if phones were meant to be used like bulletproof vest then my 8 year old nokia 3310 would do a better job.and ofcourse at much lower cost...hail nokia.:):)

Fortunately it was a weak caliber in a "modified" or improvised gun, most likely a caliber .32 which is not great, still enough to pass through a mans arm but just barely, and only a thin arm. If it was a regular handgun like a Glock 9mm it would have continued into the chest.
A .32 will shoot through any cellphone that comes in its way even if its a weak caliber.
About that HTC EVO 3D story, it was a small caliber revolver, a .22 LR gun for plinking.
It's actually possible.

I guess it depends on the type of gun/bullet AND the phone that will block the shot
Repost: Heres the real story, the bullet went through his upper arm first, not hitting bone, and then through the phone. Anyone who think that a phone alone can stop a bullet need to get their top floor checked. The pictures even show a lot of blood on the shirt, dont you guys take a hint at all??
In addition it was not a powerful gun as mentioned in the Chinese source, maybe even just a .32 or a .25 ACP. The biggest caliber for pocket guns is .380 ACP, its diameter is same as 9mm but has lighter bullets at lower speed. A full metal jacket 9mm would easily have continued deep into the chest after ripping through the upper arm and the phone.

I can't believed this thing. Is this true? Can someone prove this? If it is true? Is the Mega still working after that shot?
thumbsup :) i better try to gun fire my asus phablet, just to test it, lols
Hmmm, something smell fishy. Same case about a policeman (if im not mistaken) with his lumia 520 in his pocket. Copycat samsung.
It shows Sammy so desperate!
Seriously to stop a bullet with a piece of plastic sounds funny!
Can someone confirm this?
This is BS. No photo of the bullet, the person who was shot, photo of his chest, or report from the police
Someone w/ a Samsung Gun, fully loaded w/ Samsung Bullets, shooting a Samsung Galaxy Mega owner. Yeah right!! I totally believe that.
