Field test - Chinese spec ops put the Xiaomi Mi Note against a high-caliber rifle with disastrous repercussions
If you get a kick of seeing innocent smartphones getting shot at with high caliber rifles in slow-mo, look no further than this video of the Chinese spec ops going aggro on the Xiaomi Mi Note. Spoiler - the smartphone gets obliterated. But you would have expected that. Bulletproof resistance is not a thing in smartphones yet, although we expect someone in a research center somewhere is working on this functionality for the premium market of customers who are being occasionally shot at.

If you've forgotten what this Xiaomi bad boy was all about, the Mi Note is a phablet that sports a 5.7-inch 1080p display and a thin frame that measures just 0.27 inches (or 6.95 mm). Under the slender hood, one would find a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP Sony camera with optical image stabilisation, a 4MP UltraPixel camera on the front, and a whopping three sound processing and amplifying chips for unparalleled audio potency. This beast costs just $371 in China, but it will cost a bit more to import, of course. And if you'd like some more horsepower on top, take a look at its big brother, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro.

Now let's see someone shoot a Nokia 3310 with that. Will the bullet break or will it just not come out at all?
