Taking this opputunity, there are other incidents that came to limelight. smart phones like the Nokia Lumia 520 and Huawei P8 Lite were also in this catagory of catching bullets. Nokia Lumia 520 saved a police man’s life in Brazil.
HTC smart phone saved a man in Florida way back in 2013. The incident was also something interesting. A robber fired a bullet in his abdomen the smart phone saved it from puncturing that part of the body.
In another incident Samsung smart phone saved a man’s life in Paris attacks that happened last year. Anyhow, recently the Note 7 battery issue was gained more popularity than the life saving news.
