It seems that Nokia phones are even more durable than once thought.

This week former Nokia design executive Peter Skillman tweeted a picture of a phone with a bullet lodged right in the middle of it.

“A Nokia phone I worked on at few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week. The embedded bullet,” he wrote.


The phone in question is the Nokia 301, which was released in 2013.

Nokia phones have a long history of being considered indestructible, with the Nokia 3310 in particular becoming the subject of many internet memes.
