The smartphone is no more an electronic device or equipment which we used to use very rarely in old days. Now, these devices have become an integral part of our life. You literally can’t think of any time you won’t feel where you won’t be using the smartphone with you.
The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) has a comprehensive database of smartphones – new and old – and the level of radiation they emit. Following the criteria set for this chart (see footnotes), the current smartphone creating the highest level of radiation is the Mi A1 from Chinese vendor Xiaomi. Another Chinese phone is in second place – the OnePlus 5T. In fact, the two companies are represented heavily in this list, with 8 of the top 16 handsets being made by one of them. Premium Apple phones such as the iPhone 7 and the recently released iPhone 8 are also here to be seen, though, as are the latest Pixel handsets from Google.
While there is no universal guideline for a ‘safe’ level of phone radiation, the German certification for environmental friendliness ‘Der Blaue Engel’ (Blue Angel) only certifies phones which have a specific absorption rate of fewer than 0.60 watts per kilogram. All of the phones featured here come in at more than double this benchmark.
Beware before using your smartphone !!! That’s it for this post.
