Although until now there has been no scientific research that presents irrefutable evidence about the effects of radiation emitted by cellphones on the human body, his attention is clear.
The truth, of course, is that few of us – if we say we are worried – take a look at this parameter when we do research to buy a new cellphone.
However, the German Federal Radiation Protection Agency (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) has conducted surveys and has a comprehensive database of levels of radiation emitted by various smartphones.
Based on this data (and other relevant sources), Statista designs infographics that follow by presenting cellphones that emit the most radiation when we touch them in our ears to talk.
According to the criteria set for this smartphone infographic with the highest radiation level is the Mi A1 from the Chinese company Xiaomi. As we know, most phones with high levels of radiation emission are produced by Chinese companies because we have 12 models of Xiaomi, OnePlus, Huawei and ZTE in the list. However, it should be noted that Apple premium phones like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 recently released are also on the list.
It should be noted that although there is no general guideline on what can be considered a "safe" level of radiation emission from our smartphone, to get "eco-friendly" cellular certification ("Der Blaue Engel" Blue Angel) in Germany, the absorption rate must be less of 0.60 watts per kilogram. All phones included in the infographic exceed at least twice this limit.
