The Radiation-Emitting smartphone

Nowadays, the majority of individuals have their smartphone within arm’s reach 24 hours a day. It’s in their pocket at work, in their hand on the train journey home, and on their bedside table before they sleep. With this level of intimacy and usage, many people can’t shake the nagging notion that they’re risking long-term harm to themselves. While conclusive longitudinal research on the impacts of cell phone radiation is still difficult to come by, for those wishing to hedge their bets, this infographic illustrates which phones generate the most radiation when held to the ear during a call.

The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) maintains a comprehensive database of smartphones, both new and old, and their radiation levels. According to the parameters used to create this chart (see footnotes), the Motorola Edge now emits the most radiation. While luxury phones like as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 were once near the top of this list, Apple’s newer devices have lower SARs, relegating them to a secondary position.

While there is no universally accepted standard for’safe’ phone radiation, the German environmental certification ‘Der Blaue Engel’ (Blue Angel) certifies only phones with a particular absorption rate of less than 0.60 watts per kilogram. All of the phones included in this article exceed this criterion by a factor of two.
