Who needs a bullet proof vest? Try a HTC instead

If you’re walking around the US and don’t want to get shot, try sticking your phone in your chest pocket. A member of staff in a petrol station has got his HTC handset to thank for being alive after getting shot in an attempted robbery.


A man entered and demanded that the staff member open the safe, however he ended up firing a single shot after no-one was able to open the safe.

The shot hit the guy full-on in the chest, but luckily his HTC smartphone stopped the bullet and he’s actually alright, apart from a few chest pains.

Shots of the phone can be seen here. It seems that the battery did most of the stopping. There’s more details here, but that looks like one dead HTC Evo 3D to us..
