Samsung Galaxy Note 2 saves cop's life; officer to receive free Samsung Galaxy S6
A police sergeant senior major who life was saved by his Samsung Galaxy Note 2, will receive a free Samsung Galaxy S6 from Samsung Thailand to replace the damaged handset. Pol Maj Gen Sophon Thonglorm was shot on Monday, but the bullet was intercepted by the Galaxy Note 2 that the officer carried on the left side of his waist.

The bullet penetrated the phone and hit Thomglorm in the side. However, the Galaxy Note 2 slowed down the bullet's velocity so much that the resulting wound was not life threatening. The handset didn't make it, however, and succumbed to its injuries.

The story went viral and reached Samsung Thailand. The company offered the officer a new Samsung Galaxy S6, and included traveling expenses so that the officer could make the trip to Bangkok to pick up the device. The officer's friends say that we was saved by the "Luangpor Samsung." The term "Luangpor" refers to a sacred amulet.


Thanks for the tip!

Hmm that's a bit tough, I'm in NYC. Hit me back if you selling it on eBay or swappa.

eBay taxes way too much for me to even consider selling on there. Swappa maybe. If I don't sell the phone this weekend (which I most likely will), just find me in the comment section and I'll sell it to you. It's literally in brand new condition with a tempered glass screen protector since I got it.

So you will stick with the 6+... what is your stance with the S6/S6 edge? Don't you miss any of the advantages over the iPhone's shortcomings? sincerely curious

Well I just installed multi-window on my 6 Plus and it works like a charm. I'm definitely liking being jailbroken but the S6 Edge...

Not interested in your Note 4, but I'll take some Lou Malnati's. I grew up in Geneva.

Please, either leave this site, or change your ways. I am sure that no one here appreciates what you are doing.

I don't understand why you want to go after this guy. He probably didn't do anything to you. Before you get banned, stop on your own. It is much more honorable, something you don't seem to have much of.

theguy2345, I also find Nathan_ingx comment to be offensive. Samsung still get trolled when they are doing something good. If you are Sophon Thonglorm wouldn't you be happy to receive a new replacement phone of the current yet to be released model. People, these days let their fandom guide their every words and actions. I know Microsoft has done it before, Apple maybe not so sure.

Muahahah...you find it offensive?? Did i say something bad about Sammy? You're being too sensitive here. Loosen up Joey, why so stiff?

You don't realize what the other guy is doing. He had a picture of supernova with male genitals on his face, as well as saying he is going to get him banned. He also says supernova sucks ****. So yeah, the other guy is much more offensive.

His avater pic has been removed. Good!

He might be bored sometime that he comes here to spoil the atmosphere. Just ignore him, bro.

Yeah, but he is seriously going after you. Stalking. He will get banned very soon, but in the meantime, he just needs to stop.
