5 Cell Phones with highest radiation count

No one can imagine their life without a cell phone today. It has become one of the most important gadgets to have in your life. Even kids, who cannot tell when they need to go, know how to operate a cell phone.

Along with its various usages such as calling, texting and using the internet to stay in touch with their loved ones, mobile phone has become of the best inventions of our lifetime.

Mobiles use electromagnetic waves to function. The way they receive transmission and send messages work on electromagnetic waves and higher number of radiation can be harmful. This radiation is measured in SAR value – which stands for Specific Absorption Rate. This is the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field and is measured in watts per kilogram (W/kg).

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that phones sold have a SAR level at or below 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg) taken over the volume containing a mass of 1 gram of tissue that is absorbing the most signal.


Here are 5 such phones which have the maximum amount of SAR value and emit the maximum radiation when used.

5 Huawei Vitria (SAR Value of 1.49)

A new research at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, some models of cell phones are found to emit very harmful levels of electromagnetic radiation. One such phone is Huawei’s Vitria which has a SAR value of 1.49 W/kg. This is very close to the permissible level of 1.6 W/kg and can be considered harmful when the phone is used for a lengthy period of time.
