Man Saved By Cellphone Battery

Jill Harness

Most people choose their cellphone based on available apps, keyboard placement, battery longevity, and other features, but here's one you've probably never considered: ability to stop a bullet. If you're looking for a phone that may double as a bulletproof vest, Robert Altertini will be the first person to suggest you reach for an Evo 4G.

After the valet's cellphone saved him from being shot by two men who were angry about being kicked out of the club where he works, Altertini has claimed that he will never buy another brand of cellphone.
