These Are the Phones Emitting the Most Radiation (Spoiler: iPhone Not Number 1)
An analysis conducted by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection, officially known as Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz, reveals the phones that emit the most radiation, and the results aren’t necessarily surprising.
The research determined the level of radiation during a call and was based on what is being called the specific absorption rate, or SAR.
Basically, a higher SAR indicates more radiation emissions, so those who consider such details a key factor for a potential purchase should look for the phones at the bottom of the list.
Phones emitting the most and least radiation
Xiaomi Mi A1 is the phone emitting the highest level of radiation with a SAR of 1.75 (watts per kilogram), as presented in this chart put together by Statista.
