Do you know this YouTube guy - RatedRR? Yes, the one who likes shooting at various gadgets (with weapons, not camera) and uploading the result to the video sharing site for all to see. Well, it looks like his latest victim is an iPhone 4S, which he decided to shoot with a Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle...

He kept saying "It's not powering on" yet he was clicking the center button... NOT THE POWER BUTTON! Derp da derp!
Still a cool case.

I mean, I'm sure the phone was broken from the impact of the bullet/hitting the rock but still.

Damn: a .50 cal is something that is designed to penetrate an engine block in a car at 1 km+. Very impressive that the iPhone survived external damage form the bullet and was caught out by either the rocks or by the high G force impact...

Must be aimed for James Bond. But I'm sure Q has something much stronger that this lying around his lab..

Why the hell title is little bit misleading?????
It should be "iphone case survives" not the "iphone survives", I bet that the phone case can save many other different phones, too.
Oh, I forgot I'm on a "iphonearena.com".
Anyways will you please upload any video of shooting new "icrap5", because I would love to see the "iphone5" get destroyed.

Too bad the phone still broke from the force of bullet impact.
