How can something that provides so much rigidity bend so much? The thin plastic, mated with the woven Kevlar, provides a tough yet flexible back cover. With the tensile yield strength of Kevlar being on par with some steels, the back case is the least of our worries as far as critical future repairs go.

Kevlar ≠ bulletproof. Most ballistic vests feature layers upon layers of tightly woven Kevlar, as well as a large ceramic plate. Long story short, don't shoot your Droid RAZR and expect it to survive.

After twisting and contorting the back case, we shift our focus to what its removal has exposed.
