Smartphones have become part and parcel of our lives, and even exist today as basic necessities in our day to day activities.
And today, BieGyaNation.Com presents to you with photos, the smartphones that emit the least radiation by the kind courtesy of a compilation done and reported by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection & presented by MSN.com
The impact of cell phone radiation on the human body is highly debated and inconclusive, but it’s good to know what that little device glued to your side is emitting.
Here are the phones that emit the lowest amounts of radiation.
But first, some clarity:
The radiation emissions are calculated according to their ‘specific absorption rate,’ (SAR) which is a measure of the rate of radio-frequency energy absorbed by the human body from the cell phone. It’s also measured in watts per kilogram while the phone is both calling someone and placed against a person’s ear.
These smartphones all have specific absorption rates significantly lower than the required rate for Germany’s Blue Angel certification.
Now, here are the phones that emit the least amounts of radiation:
1. Google Pixel
The American multinational and multifaceted tech company’s smartphone makes it into the top 15 with a SAR of 0.33 watts per kilogram.
2. Samsung Galaxy S8
You’ll be seeing a lot more of this South Korean company, but its first entry on this list has a SAR of 0.32.
3. Nokia Lumia 535
The Finnish company has phone models on both ends of the radiation-emitting spectrum. This dual SIM device has a SAR of only 0.32.
4. ZTE Blade A610
ZTE also has models on both end of the radiation emission spectrum. This model has a SAR of 0.31.
5. Motorola Moto Z
This American company makes its first appearance with a low SAR of 0.30.
6. Motorola Moto G5 Plus
This 2017 model has a lower SAR than its predecessors, coming in at 0.30.
7. Samsung Galaxy A5
This Android device is an attractive mid-range phone and has a SAR of 0.29.
8. LG Q6
The South Korean multinational company also makes its debut with the LG Q6, which has a SAR of 0.28.
9. ZTE Blade A910
ZTE has a range of different devices with different radiation emission and specific absorption rates. This model achieves a low rate of 0.27.
10. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
The award-winning phone has a SAR of 0.26.
11. Samsung Galaxy S8+
This Android-powered phone is the fourth Galaxy model to make it into the top 15 lowest SAR cell phones list with a rate of 0.26.
12. Google Pixel XL
This 2016 model is Google’s second entry on the list, with a SAR of 0.25.
13. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
Did you think you’d seen the last of Samsung Galaxy models? This one has a SAR of 0.22.
14. Samsung Galaxy Note8
The Note8 comes with a small pen that can be inserted into the phone. Another neat thing about it is that this smartphone comes in at second place for the lowest SAR at 0.17.
15. Sony Xperia M5
Sony makes only one appearance on this list, but it appears at the top with its dual SIM device’s incredibly low specific absorption rate of 0.14 watts per kilogram.
