To add to the ‘bravery’ of the phone, it’s cover case had the photo of the ‘Incredible Hulk’ and thus together the phone and his ‘Hulked’ case were able to save the man’s life.

The incident was reported in Brazil as during a robbery attempt a shot was fired at the man and it hit the Motorola smartphone after which it lightly grazed the man’s hip but didn’t prove fatal for him apart from just a small bruise there.

A couple years ago, a man in Afghanistan was reportedly saved after a bullet got stuck in his Nokia phone and even though he was probably not able to use his cellphone anymore, his life was saved.
