Today, Yours Truly BieGyaNation.Com brings you a compilation of the 16 ‘dangerous’ smartphones with photos that emit the most radiation which can be harmful to your health by the kind courtesy of a presentation made by MSN.Com.
This compilation was made possible by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
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 16 ‘dangerous’ smartphones that emit the highest 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.
The following are the 16 phones that emit the highest rate of radiation.
1. iPhone 7 Plus
The popular American phone has a specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1.24 watts per kilogram.
2. Blackberry DTEK60
The Canadian company’s Android phone has a SAR of 1.28 watts per kilogram.
3. ZTE Axon 7 Mini
The Chinese company’s smaller version of their Axon 7 has a higher SAR of 1.29.
4. iPhone 8
The more recent version of the iPhone has an even higher rate at 1.32—so more advanced phones don’t necessarily mean lower radiation emissions.
5. Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact
The Japanese company makes its only appearance on this list of smartphones that emit the highest levels of radiation, with a SAR of 1.36.
6. iPhone 7
Apple’s third and last appearance on this list is with the iPhone 7, which has a SAR of 1.38.
7. Huawei P9 Lite
This Chinese company makes its first (of many) entries on this list at a rate of 1.38.
8. OnePlus 5
China enters the list again with OnePlus’ dual SIM device, which has a SAR of 1.39.
9. Huawei Nova Plus
This model with enhanced battery life and photography capabilities has a SAR of 1.41.
10. Huawei P9
Co-engineered with the Leica Camera company, this model has a SAR of 1.43.
11. Huawei GX8
This particular Huawei model has a higher SAR, standing at 1.44.
12. Huawei P9 Plus
Huawei’s phones have skyrocketed in popularity over the past decade, but these devices do seem to have higher specific absorption rates, like this model which sits at 1.48.
13. Nokia Lumia 630
The Finnish company makes its first and only entry on this list with the Nokia Lumia 630, which has a SAR of 1.51.
14. Huawei Mate 9
Huawei’s sixth and final entry on the list has a SAR of 1.64.
15. OnePlus 5T
This dual SIM device has the second-highest SAR, coming in at 1.68.
16. XiaomiMi A1
The XiaomiMi A1 dual SIM device takes the cake, having a SAR of 1.75 watts per kilogram.
China dominates the list with four major smartphone manufacturers—ZTE, OnePlus, Huawei, and Xiaomi—taking 10 places in the 16 highest radiation-emitting devices with greatest specific absorption rates list.
