    for all the bitching over samsung making plastic phones, i'm quite impressed at the significant LACK of plastic carnage.

    for all those naysayers, go stand at 30 yards and i'll shoot you with a .50 cal and we'll see how your organs come out.

    There is a big difference between hitting the target head on vs. lengthwise. There would be a great deal of additional plastic carnage with the former.

    So is this Samsung hate. Now lets go and put up a IPhone and the HTC One and see how they fare with a 50 cal sniper shot. Same result

    What naysayers? :D I think we all think that it was awesome and really did a great job at destroying that phone!

    Depends on where your plan is based. I think you might have better luck in Kandahar...

    I think at this time its a fairly safe bet to say that whatever the newest hottest gismo is, one will be sacrificed in this manor to a .50 cal, and another will be sacrificed to a blender.

    I wonder when the "Samsung/Apple" companies of the world will just have their marketing teams release their own professionally produced videos of such up front, rather than wait for the inevitable amateur videos that will surely come about.

    With hundreds of thousands of them being made and distributed, I don't think one will be missed.

    Um... I couldn't care less about the smartphone. But that is a waste of .50cal Ammo!! =P

    Seriously! Can you even get primers to reload that caliber? The liberals won't have to ban your rifle if you don't have ammo. It will just become an awesome "wall decoration". =(

    no love on the htc one though, they probably decided to keep that and use it as their phone

    Or he doesn't have it yet, phone has been in short supply.

    Also, love the waste of tech comments. Hes probably making 100x more then phones worth on that video off of views a lone, let alone what he gets from his sponsor.
