We use our smartphones for multiple minutes or hours during the day. Some of us even use it during the night. But a lot of people are concerned about the potential radiation that can be generated by these devices. Sure, this issue has been problematic for quite some time, and it just continues to be like that because not a lot of studies were created regarding this.
But it seems that the Federal Office for Radiation Protection finally created a list of the smartphones that are known not to cause a lot of radiation. The radiation intensity in a phone is not a cause of concern, maybe because the radiation levels are kept rather low most of the time. But even so, there are phones which have a higher radiation level when compared to others, while you can still find some low-radiation phones that will give you good results.
According to their study, the Sony Xperia M5 has the lowest radiation, at around 0.14 watt/kg. What’s more than 2 acts on the human body, so the body does have to deal with radiation here, but not a whole lot.
Right after that, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, S6 Edge Plus, S8 Plus and S7 Edge also seem to have a very low amount of radiation. A similar thing appears to be in the case of the Google Pixel Xl, ZTE Blade A910, LG Q6 and many others.
Based on the study, it’s clear that Samsung, in particular, does some very good smartphones with not a whole lot of radiation. Only 58% of the current smartphone devices have a SAR value below 0.6 w/kg. It is an incredible opportunity and one of the nicest experiences that you can find out there.
Ideally, we would all want smartphones to be under the threshold that would potentially put a problem like this in our hands. But what we want to do is to make sure that smartphone manufacturers understand this. However, due to the way phones are built nowadays, it’s pretty hard and challenging to figure out a way to remove potential radiation and problems like that. It’s not ideal for sure, and it can bring in front some major issues. But as long as everything is handled adequately, nothing is impossible, and with the right technological advancements, we will be able to solve this one day shortly.
For the time being, it’s nice to see that some smartphones are low-radiation. The interesting thing is that Apple doesn’t have a presence in this graph. This goes to show that their smartphones are not as low-radiation as we would imagine. Not a huge deal, true, but it’s still something that we have to think about. There are plenty of devices that offer lower radiation when compared to Apple, and Samsung seems to have this thing pretty much nailed down. It is an interesting thing, so hopefully, Apple will be able to make the necessary changes in the long term. One thing is certain; these smartphones need to be safer, as no one wants to deal with radiation, no matter its power!
