LG’s new V10 goes up against the ultimate scratch test

What might a 50-caliber copper jacket look like after it skips off the display of LG’s snazzy new V10? Pretty cool actually.

It’s been a while since we shared some slo-mo footage of a tech gadget getting sliced, diced, frozen, or incinerated, but the mult-display, muli-camera LG V10 is as good as any object of destructive desire.

Richard Ryan dropped some CLP into his trusty Barrett M82A1 50-caliber rifle to see how LG’s new stainless-steel-framed smartphone can handle getting picked off at 2,800 feet-per-second. It seems a worthy challenge given LG’s claims of how the V10 can handle the abuses of a child, and there few such destructive forces known to man.

Of course Ryan has his slow-motion camera gear set up for the occasion. The second shot is spectacular, but the first shot is cool because it grazed the screen just enough that the cracking glass shaved some skin off the round, and that is not something you get to see every day.
