According to this report, the Motorola Edge SAR score exceeds the state’s FCC limit.
In various countries, regulatory agencies have set maximum SAR ratings that devices can emit to reduce the likelihood that consumers using the device will develop cancer. In the United States, the FCC limits the SAR of mobile phones to 1.6 W / Kg or less. The only phone on the Bankless Times list that exceeds that number is Motorola Edge.
The report states that all mobile phones emit some radiation. There are factors that determine the type, model, age, and antenna performance of the handset. Also important is the distance of the phone from the nearest cell tower. Phones that emit RF radiation usually only warm the area of the body that is right next to the phone, but that is not enough radiation to warm the body significantly.
The FCC suggests that in order to limit exposure to RF radiation, consumers need to limit their exposure to mobile phones, use their mobile phones for shorter periods of time, and use hands-free technology. ..
ZTE had the two phones with the lowest SAR scores at the top of the list
The data used by BanklessTimes is from the German Federal Radiation Authority. Other sources show data that contradicts one test of the Edge (2020) coming in at 0.81 W / Kg and the 2021 model coming in at 1.00 W / Kg, well below the limits of the US and EU. increase.
Once again, using data from the German Federal Radiation Bureau, the Android smartphone with the lowest radiation dose starts with the ZTE Blade V10, which has a SAR rating of .13W / Kg. This is followed by the ZTE Axon Elite and its .17W / Kg rating. The third safest Android devices are Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G (.19W / Kg), Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (.21W / Kg), Samsung Galaxy A80 (.22W / Kg), Samsung Galaxy A72 (.23W /) Kg), LG G7 ThinQ (.24W / Kg), and Galaxy S20 FE (.24W / Kg).
