Older Smartphones Emit Up to 5x Radiation than FCC Allows – Report
People worrying about radiation coming from their phones might have been on to something, as a recent investigation revealed that some of the older smartphone models have been outputting five times more than the maximum allowed.
For the longest time, reports about radiation coming from phones and smartphones have been debunked. The problem is that while most electronic devices emit some form of radiation, it’s still unclear whether it affects humans. Extensive testing shows that it most likely has no effect, but that hasn’t stopped institutions such as the FCC to impose limits.
It turns out that some of the older smartphones have been outputting a lot more radiation than they should, although it’s unknown whether that has any long-term effects. And you will be surprised to see some high-end devices on that list.
