Nokia Lumia 920 gets shot by an AK-47 assault rifle. Doesn't live to see OS upgrade.

We've seen some recent videos featuring the Nokia Lumia 920 getting decimated--by either dropping it, hitting it with wood or even stabbing the polycarbonate beauty.

But one thing we didn't think we would ever see is someone shooting it with a real AK-47 assault rifle.

To what end? We're not sure although before the phone is executed the host of Tech Assassin (RatedRR), Richard Ryan, does have some chipper things to say of the top-selling Windows Phone. So that's good.

Hey, publicity is publicity and if some gun enthusiasts now know about the Nokia Lumia 920 and are intrigued, mission accomplished.

Spoiler alert: AK-47? This kills the Lumia 920.
