CNET Releases Top 5 Phones With the Most Dangerous SAR Levels

CNET Releases Top 5 Most Dangerous SAR Levels


CNET Releases Top 5 Most Dangerous SAR Levels. Here’s the list.

To help restrict your exposure to cell phone radiation, the (EWG) Environmental Working Group released these five recommendations:

1. Use a headset
2. Use the speakerphone option
3. Text more, talk less
4. Purchase a low radiation phone (see list below)
5. Stay off the phone when you have a weak signal. Weaker signals mean more emissions to contact the tower.

We would add to this list to use an RF Safe Flip Cover Case with the extra added protection of an RF Safe Ferrite Bead. For these and other Radiation Frequency Safe products click here.

The EWG also released a list of the top 5 cell phones with the lowest emitted radiation. The results show the maximum possible SAR level from the phone. SAR, or Specific Absorption Rate, measures the rate which the body tissue absorbs radiation energy while using cell phones.

Brand and Type SAR level
1 Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 0.17
2 Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 0.26
3 SonyEricsson Xperia Play 0.36
4 Samsung Galaxy Beam 0.28
5 Samsung Galaxy 551 0.38

CNET Releases Top 5 Most Dangerous SAR Levels

Huawei Vitria

5: Huawei Vitria with an overall SAR Rating of 1.54

From PC Mag:

  • PROS

    An inexpensive phone on an affordable network. 4G LTE support. Clear-sounding earpiece for phone calls. Profiles app is a boon to use.

  • CONS

    Egregious amount of bloatware. Screen could be sharper. Poor camera. Minuscule storage.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    For under $150 the Huawei Vitria doesn’t take the best photos, but it’s a solid Android device, and one of the better inexpensive phones from MetroPCS.

Alcatel One Touch Evolve

4: Alcatel One Touch Evolve with an overall SAR Rating of 1.49

From PC Mag:

  • PROS

    Inexpensive. Sleek design. Runs Android 4.1.2 Jellybean. Quick web browsing. Swype keyboard is the default choice.

  • CONS

    No LTE. Little on-board storage. Poor noise-cancellation.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    At just under $100, the Alcatel One Touch Evolve is a pretty good Android smartphone. Its 4-inch display isn’t going to turn heads, but it’s a good choice for first-time smartphone users on T-Mobile.

    Low-resolution display. Poor camera.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    With the addition of LTE and a processor upgrade,Motorola’s latest Moto E narrows the gap between entry-level and high-end smartphones.

Motorola Droid Ultra

2: Motorola Droid Ultra with an overall SAR Rating of 1.54

From PC Mag: 

  • PROS

    Fast performance. Touchless control and swivel-to-launch camera are really neat.

  • CONS

    Slick, unpleasant feel. Low-resolution screen for a 5-inch panel. Unnecessary pre-loads and branding.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Droid Ultra works fine, but it’s the weakest entrant in the recent litter of Motorola phones. More appealing options abound.

Motorola Droid Maxx

1: Motorola Droid Maxx with an overall SAR Rating of 1.54

From PC Mag: 

  • PROS

    Excellent build quality. Long talk time. Adequate storage. Quick camera launch feature. Powerful voice commands.

  • CONS

    Low-res screen for the size. Wide. Lots of bloatware.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Motorola Droid Maxx has a big battery and a nice build, but it loses some of the Moto X’s hand-friendliness.

Of course, you’re here because you’re informed about the dangers of cell phones and the potential cancer causing levels of radiation. Brain and heart tumors and other cell phone causing cancers can be prevented by using an RF Safe flip Cover Case in conjunction with an RF Safe AirTube Headset which can be further protected by an RF Safe Ferrite Bead. The good news is that you can protect yourself from cancer causing radiation emitted by cell phones with these and other devices.
