Apparently there’s one person out there who doesn’t want to give up their Samsung Galaxy.

A Houston, Texas, woman was involved in an armed robbery when the thief demanded that she hand over her phone or else she’d be shot.

“He was like, hey, let me get that phone. I was like, I’m not giving you my phone sir. He’s like, I’m going to shoot you, so I put my hands up,” she recounted to KHOU-TV, only giving her name as Courtney out of fear for her safety.

The robber followed through with his threat and allegedly shot her. “I looked down the barrel and was like no please don’t shoot me,” she said. “It was like a pop.” Luckily, the bullet only grazed the side of her head.

A friend nearby heard the commotion and pulled Courtney into her house. She said the man then tried pounding his way in, but he escaped the scene before the police could get him.

“I almost lost my life on a $700 phone,” Courtney said. “I don’t get it.”

We just can’t believe she spent $700 on a Samsung phone…
