Watch the Samsung Galaxy S5 get shot by a .50 caliber rifle [VIDEO]


Yay, more consumer electronics carnage! The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the latest device that finds itself in the crosshairs of a madman with a gun. This time, the classic Barrett M107A1  is looking to rip through the plastic exterior and silicon interior of Samsung’s 2014 flagship device.

The video features the typical torture test at the start to test its durability. Just as we’ve seen in videos prior, the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be thrown into a washing machine and run over by a truck, and still live to tell the tale.

That IP67 certification for dust-proof and waterproof, and its tempered, toughened glass might be enough to withstand the elemental conditions of life, but all of that goes into the trash when it meets the barrel of one of the most powerful sniper rifles out there. The bullet’s force causes it to hit the flagship phone so fiercely that it looks like it vanishes into complete dust to the human eye. Watch the video above if you’re into this sort of thing.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Gorilla glass my ass, that scratched so easily after it got shot by the rifle

    1. Lmao I know you’re joking but just wanna let you guys know a 50cal round rips limbs off. The 50cal rounds from the M2 machine guns can literally cut a guy in half. The round doesn’t even need to impact you on occasions because the pressure in the vortex of the round will kill you. Gotta love shooting the 50.

  5. This seems to be the kind of phone review on Phandroid site. It is hard to learn about the phone because this type of review doesn’t give enough practical information whether I should buy this phone or not.
