Which Smartphone Emits The Most And Least Radiation — Samsung, iPhone, Google Pixel, Xiaomi, Nokia, OnePlus or Huawei?

According to a recent research, the current population of unique mobile users across the globe is estimated to be over 5 billion, i.e. around two-thirds of the world’s population uses a smartphone.

We’re all plugged into our smartphones, nearly 24/7. This means most of us constantly live under the cloud of radiations.

According to Statista, “While conclusive longitudinal research on the effects of cell phone radiation is still hard to come by, for those looking to hedge their bets, (we've a list of) phones that emit the most radiation when held to the ear while calling.”

If you are planning to buy a new smartphone, be sure to take a look at the following charts which will help you in weighing your options. This list is based on Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), and highlights both Android and iOS devices.

This infographic shows the 'Specific Absorption Rate' of smartphones that emit the most radiation.

The above chart shows, Xiaomi Mi A1 tops the chart as the most radiation-emitting device. One Plus 5T, Huawei Mate 9, iPhone 7, Sony Xperia XZ1 and iPhone 8 are also in the list.

This infographic shows the 'Specific Absorption Rate' of smartphones that emit the least radiation.

“The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) has a comprehensive database of smartphones - new and old - and the level of radiation they emit when held to the ear during a call. Following the criteria set for the above chart (see footnotes), the smartphone creating the lowest level of radiation is the Samsung Galaxy Note8 - with a specific absorption rate of 0.17 watts per kilogram. In fact, Samsung handsets also feature prominently, with half of the top ten coming from the South Korean company.”

ZTE Axon Elite, LG G7, Google Pixel XL, Samsung Galaxy S8+, HTC U11 Life and Motorola Moto G5 Plus are also world's safest smartphones in terms of SAR.
