    Such a shame to see the backordered gold iPhone 5s go through all of this (warning: some of you may find this article offensive):

    Videos like that irk the heck out of me. I mean, I don't wonder if the iPhone or any other electronic device is bullet proof while contemplating buying it. The owner of that device has the right to destroy it, if he or she wants, but I think it is in poor taste to upload a video that depicts a device that is in great demand, but in short supply, being shot for the sake of seeing how well or not it can withstand being shot. #smh

    Excuse me, but besides being pointless, is there ANY cell phone that could pass that test? Do the silver or space gray iphones pass the "test". I have a gold phone on order for my wife. I'l be sure to tell her to stay away from any phone snipers that might be out there.

    On the other hand I suppose there's probably some liberals out there that'll want to stop all the iphone carnage and violence through stricter gun control!!!

    Likely none, unless in some sort of super multilayer Kevlar case that is thick enough to disperse the energy from such a huge round.

    Hilarious yet shameful at the same time. People will do anything to get in the know of the web to draw hits.

    But we all learned that... It does not survive being shot.

    He bought it, it's his, and he can do with it as he pleases.

    Unfortunately, that is what you call a "1st world problem."

    Shooting a bullet at a $650 mobile device? No problem!

    In third world countries, most don't even MAKE $650 in a year. To each their own, I suppose.

    1. This proves that iPhone 5S is lagging behind, can't even withstand a bullet, pffft.

    2. Wonder how he's going to explain this one to apple care...

    3. I was amused that before that shot he did drop it in water and it still worked.

    I don't care. That was awesome. People can live with their iPhone 4's and 4S's as they lived with them before. They can wait. They don't need the gold version right away.

    There is. I watched a video on YouTube and the case was for the iPhone 5. It didn't break when shot by a rifle but the screen cracked when it hit the ground. Clearly, it only does what was written on the box.

    We need to verify this Rene!

    When the imore God gets his Gold 5s I will buy a .50 cal at the local dollar store and we can do a proper controlled test to see if this carries any weight 😀

    It's easy to get a 50 than a 5s it seems

    And in other news, Samsung announces that they too have been working on a phone that can't withstand being shot by a .50 cal. Android fanboys everywhere are stating that Apple wasn't first, Atrix was also capable of being destroyed by bullets.

    No cell phone at the present time should be bullet proof. Other than people shooting their phones for videos WHO buys a phone with the thought. " I wonder if this is bullet proof? " The video was funny though, if only for the thought if it DID pass.. which of course it didn't. :/
