Top 5 phones with the highest radiation levels

Top 5 phones with the highest radiation levels

Cell phones have become an integral part of our society. They are a great way of staying in touch with our loved ones and being more efficient in our work and day-to-day tasks.

However, there are negative effects with cell phones. Mobile phones do emit radiation, and new research even shows that they can warp brain waves and structure.

Cell radiation is measured in a unit called Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR, which is the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a cell phone. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires mobile phone manufacturers to stay within the limits of their set SAR levels. The FCC’s SAR limit is 1.6 watts per kilogram.

Some phones do emit more radiation than others. They should be avoided if possible. Lets take a look at the top 5 phones with the highest radiation levels.

1. Motorola Droid Maxx – SAR 1.54
2. Motorola Droid Ultra – SAR 1.54
3. Motorola Moto ESAR 1.49
4. Alcatel One Touch Evolve
SAR 1.49
5. Huawei Vitria
SAR 1.49

Our rule is that it is better to be safe than sorry. So with that being said, let’s take a look at some tips to avoid cell phone radiation.

1. Use a headset or speaker:
Headsets emit much less radiation than phones. Choose either wired or wireless. Experts are split on which version is safer.

Some wireless headsets emit continuous, low-level radiation, so take yours off your ear when you are not talking. Using your phone in speaker mode reduces radiation.

2. Hold phone away from your body:
Hold the phone away from your ear and your body when you are talking. If you are using a headset, don’t put the phone in your pocket or clip it to your belt – put it in your purse. The amount of radiation absorbed by your head and body decreases dramatically with even a small distance.

3. Text more, speak less:
Phones emit less radiation when sending texts than during voice communications. Texting keeps radiation away from your head.

4. Call only when the signal is strong:
Fewer signal bars mean the phone must try harder to broadcast its signal to the tower. Place and take calls only when your phone has a strong signal. Radiation exposure increases dramatically when cell phone signals are weak.

5. Limit children’s phone use:
Young children’s brains can absorb twice as much cell phone radiation as those of adults.

6. Skip the “radiation shield”:
Radiation shields such as antenna caps and keypad covers reduce the connection quality and force the phone to transmit with greater energy, generating more radiation.

7. Put your phone ‘on airplane mode’ when your children are around:
It will help reduce radiation transmission. Do so when you sleep and try not to bring your phone in your bedroom.
