SAR values

By S21, last updated 24 Nov 2014

SAR (specific absorption rate) is a measurement of how much electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by body tissue whilst using a mobile phone. The higher the SAR the more radiation is absorbed.

In Europe, the European Union Council has adopted the recommendations made by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP Guidelines 1998). These recommendations set a SAR limit of 2.0 W/kg in 10g of tissue. The UK Government has endorsed this limit (following a report by the Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones) and the five mobile phone network operators have agreed to voluntarily adopt the ICNIRP guidelines for public exposure. All mobile phones on sale in the UK comply with this limit.

In the United States, the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) requires all cell phones to comply with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg in 1g of tissue.

How to reduce your exposure to phone radiation

  • Do not use your phone more than necessary and keep your calls short
  • Send a text instead of making a call
  • Try to avoid using your phone if the signal strength is low - find a better location to make a call
  • Try to use the phone outdoors rather than inside, or move close to a window to make a call
  • Keep the phone (and particularly the aerial) as far as possible from your head
  • Avoid touching the aerial while the phone is turned on, and keep the phone away from areas of the body such as eyes, testicles, breasts and internal organs
  • Limit usage as much as possible if pregnant
  • Switch off your phone when not in use

You should be aware that if the phone is receiving a very strong signal from a base station, then power output can be reduced by up to 1000 times compared with when the phone has a poor signal.

SAR Values

As SAR information is not always easy to find, we have compiled a list of SAR values for most phones available in the UK. Please note that S21 accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of this data. All data has been collected from third party sources and in each case the source of the data is referenced. You are advised to verify the accuracy of this information for yourself. Under no circumstances will S21 be held liable for any loss, injury or damage associated with the use of this data.

You should note that while the SAR values of individual phones may vary, every phone available for sale in the UK complies with ICNIRP guidelines. You should also be aware that the SAR values shown are maximum values and in practice emissions from mobile phones will normally be lower than these figures. The emissions depend on factors such as distance from a transmission mast, whether the phone is used indoors or outdoors, how close the phone is held to the ear and other operating factors. It is important to realise that a phone with a high SAR rating may actually operate with much lower emissions in practice, and conversely a phone with a lower SAR rating may operate with emissions higher than a high SAR phone in practice. You should not rely on a low SAR rating to guarantee your health.

Comment by sathesh from india on 16th Nov 2014
please tell me whether to buy blackberry Z10 ie. in case of health wise, whether it is good to use or not. SAR value is 1.39 for Blackberry, i am confused, till date i thought that mobile which is in lesser cost gives more radiation and high end will emit less radiation, kindly confirm which one to buy. money is not a matter and model, brand, design, trend nothing is important. Health is first,

I really wana thank to this site. I got many suggestion for buying a new phone, but i am looking at ear pain problems people are facing. so looking to take a low sar value phone.

Comment by David from UK on 4th Sep 2014
I recently started using a Motorola Moto 4G mobile phone, having used a Samsung Galaxy S2 for the last 2 + years.

I always turn my phone off when not in use if it is on my person, and also keep it as far away as possible when sleeping or at home or at work if it is reasonable to do so. Although I work in a job where I am told I must have my mobile phone on me all the time, I do not comply, and instead turn it on to check every 20 - 30 minutes.

Anyway, the reason I have been searching this issue - and this is the first site I've looked at regarding it - is that with the Moto 4G, I can actually feel the radiation / energy from it when texting (feel it in my hand), especially if sending a lengthy text. I hold it as far away from my head as possible on speaker phone when making calls.

I am very aware of the electro magnetic radiation issue (and the many other health related issues which bombard the modern world, many of which could be said to be purposefully damaging), and am also very aware of energies, since I have a keen interest in this area and practice qigong etc.

I just wanted to make others aware of this issue with this particular phone, and wondered if anyone else may have noticed? It is a Google company… So perhaps in cahoots with some evil shadowy corporations / government bodies / world banks? But maybe I'll be dismissed as a crank by other readers. Or tracked down and killed on the sly…! I'm joking. I think... Either way, I can really feel a tangible negative energy feeling when holding and using the handset. My flippancy may discredit what I say, but I must stay positive!

One final point: how can we believe any of the statistics, when they're all tested and reported by those who have financial interests in the products in question? It's a bit like drug trials, no? Or a vaccine manufacturer to run safety checks. They can hand pick data and just present what fits their desired result / outcome. This kind of bad science is all around these days it seems.

Kind regards,

David

Hi David, I was suffering from the same issue but to the point I was suffering from unexplained headaches. My GP referred me to a neurologist and after a CT scan advised me to sell my Motorola G to alleviate the risk of anything untoward. I bought a Samsung e1200i which has a rating of .87 but since using, the number of headaches has vastly reduced. There has to be something in this. I have another follow up next month so that could be interesting. I am really plased you mentioned this. I thought perhaps it's just me....

Many thanks to S21 & the participants for sharing this useful information.

Following suggestions as preventive measures might help to minimize the harmful effects :-
1- All Mobile Phones to prominently display SAR Absorption Ratio and the recommended Safe Ratio.

2- Mobile Phones to be used as a necessity >> not as luxury.
Awareness of its harmful effects be made compulsory in form of printed leaflets in the languages of that country.

3- More awareness to minimize the duration of use at one time.

4- The Cell Phones be kept as far as possible away from the ear.

5- Cell phones be kept as far away from human body as possible >> specially when not in use and during sleep.

6- Special Mobile cases be introduced which can prevent/absorb its Electro-Magnetic Radiations from dissipating; when not in use.

7- Special precautions for limits of use in Kids, growing females/males; pregnant women.

8- Serious considerations for restrictions of use in Schools,Clinics,Hospitals,on-going meetings/conferences,Religious/Prayers Sessions.

9- Technology be used & not misused / over-used without effecting/compromising health.

Wishing everyone good health.

Does that mean that lower the SAR levels, better is the instrument for human body?

Reply by S21 from UK on 6th Jul 2014
In simple terms, yes.

Comment by Sijith from India on 2nd Jul 2014
Hai I like to buy a micrimax canvas 4 may i know its correct SAR value...

Comment by Nicola from UK on 24th Jun 2014
Thank you for the useful information on SAR values on your website.
You write that phones with high SAR values may operate at much lower levels and phones with low SAR levels may operate at higher rates. While I would not rely on a low SAR level as being safe, can I assume that a phone with a low level is generally safer than one with a high level?
How can I find out at what level the phone is generally operating?
Are you saying that a phone with a low SAR might constantly operate at the maximum (low) level quoted, while phones with a high maximum level might actually operate at a very low level most of the time so that In practice I might be better off buying a phone with a higher SAR level? How would I find out?
Thanks,

Reply by S21 from UK on 25th Jun 2014
The SAR values quoted by manufacturers are maximum operating values. The actual value in use will depend on network strength and other factors. Generally speaking, on average a phone with low SAR rating will emit less radiation than one with a high rating. If you are concerned about radiation, it would be advisable to choose a phone with a low SAR rating, but just as important is choosing a network that gives consistently good reception and using your phone in locations with the best network strength - perhaps close to a window.

Mobile LG G-pro lite D686 dual sim what is SAR for this model, thanks

Comment by Mary from UK on 12th Apr 2014
Great info on your site thank you. I only wish the details about phones gave the SAR rating. Carphone Warehouse used to give them in their brochures. I too find that using one for half a minute or so with a SAR over 0.4 gives me a sore head on that side which can last quite some time. And of course in a car it is much worse - even if my husband next to me is using his Vodafone I am aware of the discomfort. I tell all my friends and family to use SAMSUNG as they tend to be the lowest. Can't think why Samsung don't publicise this fact!

Comment by David from England on 22nd Mar 2014
Please could you give me the SAR value (or an estimate)for an iPhone 1 and a Vodaphone Smart mini? Thank you.

Comment by h johnson from england on 2nd Mar 2014
thank you for this easy to find information. I have just been given a doro liberto 810 smart phone aimed at the more mature market !can you please tell me where a sar rating of 0.673 is low med or high . many thanks

Reply by S21 from UK on 3rd Mar 2014
0.673 is lower than many current phones, but all phones comply with the legal requirements.

Comment by James H from UK on 14th Feb 2014
Does anyone know of any phone cases that act as good signal attenuators?

Comment by Reader from UK on 30th Jan 2014
My Nokia E70 which has two models is not listed. Whilst Nokia N95 has about five models, with SAR values of between approximately 0.4 and 0.7 and yet the table here only cites model 159 with SAR 0.58 ignoring the other models. Information source Nokia - same as cited in the table.

Reply by S21 from UK on 30th Jan 2014
The values for the Nokia N95 are for the RM-159 which was the original version released in the UK. Other markets may have different versions and the SAR values may be different.

Comment by J D from UK on 15th Dec 2013
The Google Nexus 4 made by LG does not seem to be listed. Do you have figures for it, please?

Reply by S21 from UK on 15th Dec 2013
The highest SAR value for use at the ear is 0.56 W/kg. Source: http://www.lg.com/global/support/sar/sar

Is it possible to find the SA rates for digital landline cordless phones, please?

Reply by S21 from UK on 13th Sep 2013
We don't publish that info here. Generally speaking, we would expect the SAR for cordless phones to be much less than mobiles, since they are transmitting over a short distance (100m instead of several km).

Comment by Dee from UK on 15th Aug 2013
This is really useful. Thank you to those who put it all together. I just wonder if it would be too much trouble for the website to also list these in order of SAR value, so that not only can we see the SAR rating of our current phone, but can also easily ascertain which phone to go for if we want to buy a new one with the lowest SAR possible.

Reply by S21 from UK on 17th Aug 2013
Hi Dee, thanks for your comments. Most of the phones listed here are now old, so we're not sure how useful this would be.

Comment by akif from türkiye on 24th Jul 2013
are these sar values for head or body ?

Reply by S21 from UK on 25th Jul 2013
They are maximum values.

Comment by Dave from UK on 27th Jun 2013
I'm still using an old Sony Ericsson Z600 which is 10 years old. It has a very low SARS rating 0.16 and I can't find a modern phone with the same. If I use anything with a higher rating than that, I get headaches and the side of my face,teeth and jaw goes numb. People laugh at me, but I'm not making it up. Like a previous post said, they are keeping quiet about it.Just because you are not sensitive to it, doesn't mean its not there!!

Comment by JYOTHI from INDIA on 26th Jun 2013
WHAT IS THE THRESHOLD VALUE ABOVE WHICH THE :SAR" VALUE IS HARMFULL OR WHICH RANGE IS SAFE...

Reply by S21 from UK on 26th Jun 2013
No value of SAR has been shown to be harmful. All phones comply with the legal limits that are set by authorities, as detailed in the introduction to this article.

Comment by Jenny from USA on 16th May 2013
SARS rating is very important to me. Just want a phone with:1.low sars rating 2. great camera 3. easy contacts(call waiting, calls missed, caller id...) I would like to be able to listen to UTube. What's my WOW phone?

very relevant to sar rating

Comment by ron taylor from uk on 24th Jan 2013
I think sar ratings are very important,but it seems to be ignored,the same as warnings about cigarettes were in the early days.We are sure to see an increase in brain tumors in the coming years
I phones are particulary high in sar
THE POWERS THAT BE SEEM TO PREFER TO SHOVE IT UNDER THE CARPET///monetary concerns???

Comment by Susie L from UK on 8th Oct 2012
Me again as a follow-up to your reply to me below. WHERE exactly is the SARS ranking for the 4 and 4S Three i-phone. It does not appear to be in the list above or if it is, what is listed under?

Thanks,

Susie

Reply by S21 from UK on 8th Oct 2012
Hi Susie, listed alphabetically under Apple.

Comment by Susie from UK on 28th Sep 2012
I have an i-phone 3S - my contract is due to expire soon. Am considering upgrading to a 4 or 5S, (like I usually do). On your list above of SAR rankings, it appears to only go up to 'S' alphabetically! So I am not really sure what my Three (3) i-phone is! I have recently had cancer so although I realise having an i-phone with a low SAR is no guarantee, I thought I might as well go for a low one - it might just help me psychologically!

Thank you,

Susie

Reply by S21 from UK on 1st Oct 2012
Hi Susie, we've updated the table for the iPhone 4S and 5. They have relatively high SAR values, but obviously still within legal limits.

Comment by Daniel from UK on 10th May 2012
Does anyone actually care?
The procedures of reducing SARs seems pedantic.

Turn of phone when not in use - devotes the punt of a mobile phone
Try too use the phone out doors - lol

Crazy hippies

Stelios, you can see from the figures above that 0.625 is lower than most phones and well below the EU limit of 2.0.
