Since cell phones and smartphones have found their way into our everyday lives, device radiation has been a constant issue. Many users worry that constant use could damage their health. To this day, however, there are no clear scientific findings on the question.
Statista has now published a ranking list based on the figures from the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, in which the smartphones with the highest radiation intensity are listed.
Cell phone radiation: These smartphones have the highest SAR values
The Motorola Edge comes first with a relatively clear gap. When using the device on the phone, the smartphone emits an absorption rate (SAR) of 1.79 watts / kg. The ZTE Axon 11 5G follows in second place with a value of 1.59 watts / kg. The podium is then completed by the One Plus 6T, which is just behind the ZTE model with 1.55 watts / kg.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus (1.41 watts / kg) follows at a considerable distance, followed by the two Google smartphones Pixel 3 XL / 3a XL (1.39 watts / kg) and the Pixel 4a (1.37 watts) / kg). The top 8 finally complete the Oppo Reno 5G with 1.37 watts / kg and the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact with 1.36 watts / kg.
