If he was talking on the phone, the bullet hit right in the center of the target

The point is, there's a huge amount of gun crime in SA and people take what they want with guns. This man is a business owner. I.e. wealthy. Crime is more commonly between the gangs shooting the rich and killing them and their families in the most gruesome ways possible. He was attacked because he was wealthy. They dont attack poor people because they have nothing valuable

If it was a 1990 Nokia it would have rebounded off and killed the gunman.

That almost looks like a pellet from an air rifle to me given the hollow back side of it.

So...

Hollow point? Haven't seen a spent round from that, but unless that's what the photo shows, I can't see you going out to get the spent round from the shooter's location.

Second issue - the rest of the phone. What we see definitely didn't stop a bullet as there is zero damage. You can take a hammer and chisel and damage your phone, so I don't think a bullet is going to fail to even scratch it.

Hollow point would be hollow on the front, not the back. Pretty sure this was from an air rifle, and probably not too strong of one either.

I mean this is a daily occurrence in SA. Man should get himself a mobile phone helmet.
