Nokia phone takes a bullet, saves a life yet again

Peter Skillman, a Microsoft executive, recently shared a picture of a badly damaged Nokia feature phone. The phone had apparently taken a bullet, of course it isn’t in a working condition but it managed to save the user’s life.

Nokia has been a loved brand. Everyone who wanted a high-quality phone went for a Nokia. Be it smartphones or feature phones, the Finnish brand was the leader of making handsets. We’ve also heard a lot about how solid they were built. Even today, the Nokia 3315 is hailed to be as strong as a brick.

Even after exiting the handset business Nokia is still making news. And saving lives for that matter. Peter Skillman, a Microsoft executive, recently shared a picture of a badly damaged Nokia feature phone. The phone had apparently taken a bullet, of course it isn’t in a working condition but it managed to save the user’s life. Peter Skillman’s tweet reads, “A Nokia phone I worked on a few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week. The embedded bullet.”

You can see in the picture how the bullet has penetrated the phone but hasn’t managed to go through it. We can’t quite confirm the model number but it definitely is a Nokia branded phone.

We’ve heard similar miracles in the past of how Nokia phones have survived a lot of abuse, damage and taking bullets. But frankly, we didn’t expect a case at a time when Nokia phones are getting extinct.
