A five-year-old Motorola phone saved a man’s life by stopping a bullet from penetrating his skin during an armed robbery in Brazil.


The doctor, who treated the phone’s owner, said the man only had a small bruise near his hip and was quickly discharged. He also shared pictures of the damaged Moto G5, which had a Hulk-themed phone cover.

The bullet hit the phone’s screen which is now shattered and also a big dent at the back from the force of it.

The Moto G5 isn’t known to be a rugged smartphone. However,  it does have a bulky body compared to other phones.
