Among the numerous iPhone cases, it is exceptionally specialProtect iPhone with extremely thick aluminum plate "1 inch armored case". In the GIGAZINE editorial department we banged themselves with something like bar or the like but the product was designed safely just as it was designed "assuming direct hit of 50 caliber (12.7 mm) bullets", safely keeping the iPhone safe.

However, a person appeared that overseas this propaganda complaint was true or tried to actually shoot with 50 caliber bullets.
