Mobile phones with lowest SAR values

By , 21 Feb 2014, last updated 16 Feb 2015

For the past 10 years we've maintained a list of mobile phone SAR values for the phones on sale in the UK. The SAR (specific absorption rate) value is a measurement of how much electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by body tissue whilst using a mobile phone. The higher the SAR rating of a phone the more radiation is absorbed.

But which phones have the lowest SAR ratings? Here we bring you a list of the top 10 lowest emission cell phones currently on sale in the UK.

Best buy: iD Mobile from iD Mobile (£0.00)




Introduction

All phones on sale in the UK and Europe conform to the EU's SAR limit of 2.0 W/kg in 10g of tissue. But some are a lot lower than this. Here we list the 10 lowest SAR rated phones currently on sale in the UK. The SAR values shown are maximum values and in practice emissions from mobile phones will normally be lower than these figures.

Well done to Samsung and Sony for working hard on reducing phone emissions! Whilst there is no evidence of harm from ionizing radiation from phones, it's always best to reduce radiation levels where possible.

I m using Xperia Z2 is it under SAR. Is itremains same all time of fluctuate according to heating of mobile or so.

Comment by William from Netherlands on 31st Mar 2015
The S4 mini does not always have that low a SAR rate. Unfortunately the Samsung-website states 0,332 for the 9195 model, yet says there are differences, connected to production dates, but if there is no way to tell on the bases of a unique product modelcode like EAN, prior to opening the package and checking the manual :( how should consumers buy the model they wish? In the phone I bought the 0,332 turned out to be 0.678 (European standards)for Head exposure.

Comment by Jack from Australia on 6th Feb 2015
A sane person never buys an iPhone (iCancer) or Blackberry. Their SAR values are really high and dangerous. Samsung and LG are the best.
