Compare mobile phone SAR values

Science does not yet know the long-term effects of daily mobile signal radiation. Mobile phones emit mobile signal radiation, which typically affects our ears and the part of the brain that is closest to the ear when we are talking on the phone. Mobile signal emissions can also affect our genital organs when kept in a trouser pocket, or our chest and lung tissue when kept in a shirt or jacket pocket.

Science is currently debating whether mobile signal emissions can be carcinogenic, but it is likely that many years will pass before we have sufficient data to confirm or deny the hypothesis that mobile signal emissions are carcinogenic.

The table below presents mobile phone SAR values, as an expression of mobile phone signal emissions for each device. If you do not wish to expose yourself, your children, or other dear ones to unnecessary mobile signal emissions, it is a good idea to choose mobile phones with low SAR values.
