"There are plenty of memes going around that feature the classic Nokia 3310 feature phone, where it proved to be one tough cookie. Well, are all Nokias built tough? That remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – earlier this morning, someone on Facebook reported about an incident that happened in war torn Syria, a country that is going through the bitter struggles of a civil war. It seems that an owner of the Nokia X2 was filming the action that is happening between the rebels and military, where bombs and bullets were let off with wanton abandon.

This did not fail to deter the Nokia X2′s owner who moved closer to the action, and when he was still shooting a video halfway with the Nokia X2 remaining nearly in front of his mouth as his right hand held it, the incident happened. A bullet struck the Nokia X2, but remained stuck in the handset, meaning it stopped the bullet altogether, sacrificing its digital life for its human owner. The image above does seem to indicate otherwise, however. No idea on just how true this is, but it is a heart warming incident to read about where technology saves another life yet again, an old one at that."

Nome stops bullet, saves a life in Syria

That must be one of the newer Nokias. The old Nokias would have sent the bullet straight back and headshot the shooter.

it never said it stopped the bullet. It just said it saved his life. Its possible it just slowed it down enough not to hit anything fatal.

The impact probably came from the back since he was recording a video. We don't know from the pictures if it penetrated the front so can't be too sure

perhaps, but as you see, the hole on the backside is bigger than the front, so if the bullet went all through, wouldn't the hole be just as big both front and back?
