    Actually it looks like it was actually the battery that stopped the bullet, not the phone. I once was standing next to a bouncer at a club when a bullet came through the glass of the outside door and lodged in his forehead. He just pulled it out with his hand. Last summer some axxhoxx threw my Incredible off a 2nd story deck onto a street. The back cover was by the near curb, the main part was in the opposite lane of traffic, and the battery was on the opposite site of the street behind a parked car. I put it back together and it worked fine. Only a slight dent on the corner of the case where it hit the ground and a slightly bend battery connector wire. That was amazing. A week later I saw the pics of the guy's Incredible that fell into a camp fire. Case all melted but screen good and phone working fine. That was truly amazing.

    The red circle around the camera lens scared the bullet enough to slow it down

    Mythbusters did this with a laptop and found that the bullets went through the laptop except when it hit the battery, I believe it stopped all pistol rounds. Granted it's still larger then a phone battery, but this is easily plausible.

    Errr no. Laptop batteries are 5 times thicker and are more dense than the li-ion polymer battery in the Inc. This claim is just a stupid ploy to impress uneducated people.

    How is what I said wrong? I said "granted laptop batteries are thicker then phone batteries", and you replied "errr no".

    I believe the man had an EVO, not to rain on anyone's parade. It was the battery that stopped it.
