HTC One M8 SAR radiation level: Safe, but Still Close to Legal Limits
The HTC One M8 SAR radiation level reaches a combined score of 1.2W/kg. This is not so low below the legal limit of 1.6W/kg. This limit is set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The 1.2W/kg SAR rating of the HTC One (M8) is for simultaneous transmissions. While not stellar on its own, it suggests that the device is safer to use than other devices. Devices such as the iPhone 6 and Nexus 6 that border on the legal levels.
The HTC One (M8) is also estimated to reach SAR levels of 0.94W/kg near-the-ear (head SAR). It reaches levels of 0.83W/kg near the body.
THE GOOD, BAD and BOTTOM LINE From CNET
- THE GOOD The HTC One flaunts a stunning metal design, a powerful quad-core processor, and a beautiful 4.7-inch, 1080p screen. It runs Android Jelly Bean, takes great pictures, and has a feature-packed camera app.
- THE BAD The sealed case design means no SD expansion slot or user-replaceable battery. The BlinkFeed software can’t be completely removed.
- THE BOTTOM LINE A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
SAR, a measurement that stands for Specific Absorption Rate, shows the radiation level of a smartphone.
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.
