So, like, I could actually shoot a gun at the Motorola RAZR and it wouldn't be destroyed? Or are there different kinds of Kevlar? Someone please explain! :grin:

Kevlar is not bulletproof, it just won't rip.
So the bullet can't pierce the material in a vest, but you will get a massive kick from the energy of it.
On the Razr, the Kevlar can't move to the inside, so all energy has to be absorbed by the innards, making it go boom.
The Kevlar on the back is more or less a sticker for good looks, it does nothing.

LOL! I would LOVE to see a bullet test. Would be awesome.
Yeah I'd love to see a bullet test to but not with my phone LMAFO :P

Why not?! Don't you have any faith? :grin:

Nothing? It's much harder to scratch it than plastic, aluminum or glass...
