Nokia X2 saves a man's life
A few days ago, a Nokia X2 user from Syria has been documenting a fight between the rebels and military (there's a civil war in Syria right now), using the camera of his handset. As you can imagine, the battle has been quite wild - like Call of Duty, but real.
Now that this Syrian guy will be needing a new phone, it's not hard to guess what brand he's going to go with.

It is just a advertisement and nothing more...

LOL, 3310, 5110 and 3210 are the trios of toughness. :))

"As a matter of fact, the bullet didn't change its trajectory after hitting the phone, it actually stopped inside it. Now that's what we call lucky!"
Not lucky my friend..........Blessed!

it's called science and engineering with the combination of luck.

In my experience there's no such thing as luck.

Ok it may be true, but there is one problem.
it seems from the picture the bullet enters from the screen and stuck in the battery and backcover but he filming video with the phone so the screen should be facing at him so from where did the bullet came.
may be he is fiming video with a comcoder and the phone is in his pocket then its ok. also x2 is not a good phone for video recording.
but the phone is tough I agree.

I am shocked that it wasn't iPhone.

now that uv mentioned it... I wonder how the razr maxx will react to this with that thick battery and kevlar.
16. Ohrules (Posts: 299; Member since: 11 Jun 2012)
step 1: get a jacket
step 2: stuff nokia x2's in the lining
step 3: profit

Maybe the military should stop supplying the Motorola Atrix and get some Nokias instead?

Wonder what might've happened if he was using Galaxy S3.

The plastic bounce the bullet back to opponent

Just to play the pessimist, if you look at the pic, the guy is holding everything up off the counter. You can see a clean hole through the front of the phone and the back cover, yet not through the battery. Also, where is the bullet?
26. ogy_dogy (Posts: 453; Member since: 29 Jun 2012)
There is a hole in the battery too, you can see the mans finger on the other side. The question is how did it penetrate the phone but then stop? it is doubtful but fun anyway :D
39. structureman116 (Posts: 134; Member since: 14 Sep 2010)
After taking a closer look, I do see that it is his finger behind the hole in the battery, but I still question...If the bullet stopped inside the phone, where is said bullet and why is there a clear complete exit wound on the back cover. I am still a skeptic and believe someone decided they didn't like their phone anymore and shot it with a .40 caliber...

Now the military will use a bunch of Nokia X2's instead of kevlar.

i wonder how it was going to be like if that man used nokia 3310 :D, maybe the bullet will bounced off and kill the shooter LOL
25. haseebzahid (Posts: 1775; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
if it is true and above picture is also same as that guy why the bulltet impacts is from screen to backwards since filming needs the moblie to be griped facing back, in above pic the bullet hit the screen first O_o
27. ogy_dogy (Posts: 453; Member since: 29 Jun 2012)
This is interesting, maybe he was doing a self portrait in the middle of a battlefield :D lol

The Nokia X2..... when bullet hits it... the phone got shot a hole... but the bullet shatters.
34. plgladio (Posts: 311; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
1. May be he was hit by the last run meters of the bullet, at that point even 1100 can stop.
2. He is not supposed to die at this time.

Nokia durability is what I like. It is what inspire me to continue to support Nokia. Once I have Nokia 3250 which drop into the water few times and managed to use it for 4 years and yet I did not change the battery in addition I still drop few times and nothing happened. When I switch to Nokia 5800 I also drop it few times before Lumia exist in the market. Nokia is best known as its durability. Go Nokia!
