Here is information about EMF that is emitted from your phone

Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation

Whenever your cell phone is turned on, it is emitting potentially harmful EMFs. Possible side effects can range from disrupted sleep patterns to changes in DNA. Most people cannot function without their cell phone. But you can protect yourself against the danger.

EMF Danger from Cell Phones

When you hold your cell phone up to your ear, 10% to 80% of the radiation from the phone penetrates two inches into your brain. In children, the penetration is even deeper. Studies have shown that cell phones held near the head cause brain wave changes in 70% of people. The potential danger is so widely accepted that insurance companies are beginning to exclude coverage for injuries related to wireless phone radiation exposure.

These potential injuries can range from headaches and blurred vision to cancer:

  • Headaches
  • Genetic damage
  • Impaired immune system
  • Cancers, including brain tumors and melanoma
  • Break in the brain/blood barrier
  • Reduced melatonin
  • Interference with pacemakers
  • Memory loss
  • Changes in electrical activity in the brain
  • Cardiovascular stress
  • Fatigue
  • Eye problems


Earphones, headsets and speaker modes provide distance, but they don’t eliminate danger. Anytime the power is turned on, cell phones emit electromagnetic radiation – even in stand-by mode and regardless if carried on belts, in pockets or purses—or set on the table in front of you. 

More Important Facts about Cell Phones

  • Cellphones emit two kinds of EMFs – microwave electromagnetic radiation from the antenna, and more EMFs from the phone body. Both are harmful.
  • 20-80% of the radiation from a phone’s antenna penetrates up to two inches into the adult brain.
  • Cell phones have thermal effects (heating biological tissue) as well as non-thermal effects (affecting natural EMF frequencies)
  • Studies have shown that people who sleep with a cellphone by the bed have poor REM sleep, leading to impaired learning and memory. Long-term effects remain to be seen.
  • When the cellphone signal is held next to the head, brainwaves are altered a full 70% of the time.
  • Many insurance companies are so alarmed by the evidence that they now exclude health issues related to cell phone radiation from coverage.
  • Most brain surgeons limit their cellphone use, and counsel patients never to hold them to their ears.

Lowest Radiation Cell Phones of 2019 (Low SAR Ratings)

In this article, I’m going to cover the lowest radiation cell phones, and smartphones, that you can buy in 2019.

Although it isn’t the absolute best measure of a phones safety when it comes to EMF radiation exposure, SAR ratings are really our only publicly available means to compare the radiation levels of these devices.

So, after we talk about the lowest radiation phones, I’ll go a bit more in depth about what a SAR Rating is, why it matters, and why it isn’t always the best for determining the safety of a phone.

Lowest Radiation Cell Phones of 2019

This is a comprehensive chart of the lowest radiation cell phones currently available. I’ll do my best to keep it updated as new phones are released and their SAR ratings become available.

Lowest SAR Cell Phone / Smartphone

As you can see from the chart above, technically, the cellphone with the lowest SAR rating currently available is the Verykool Vortex RS90. The Vortex RS90 has a SAR of just .18 w/kg. You probably haven’t heard of this phone because it isn’t particularly popular.

Verykool is a company based out of Miami Florida that has a small line of mobile phones and accessories. The Vortex RS90 (usually just referred to as the Vortex) is a fairly simple, android based Smartphone. The most unique part of the phone is it’s unusually low SAR rating.

As you can see from the chart, coming in just second place with only a slightly higher specific absorption rate, is the Samsung Galaxy Note with a SAR rating of just .19 w/kg. This is by far the lowest radiation smartphone by a major manufacturer.

In fact, Samsung devices hold 12 of the 20 spots for lowest radiation cell phones.

Which leads us to the question:

1. Why Do Samsung Phones Have Such Low SAR Ratings?

It’s actually a pretty interesting story. It used to be that the FCC mandated that cell phone manufacturers only use antennas that transmitted in all directions, known as omnidirectional antennas.

In 2003 the FCC changed its rule, in part to protect hearing aids from the radiation emitted from the omnidirectional antenna, and no longer required that phone manufacturers use this time of antenna.
Three years after this change, in 2006, Samsung released a new antenna that “enhances handset safety by radiating most of the transmitted RF energy away from the handset user.”

This was not only a transformational upgrade for Samsung, but something brand new to the industry. More importantly, though, it dramatically lowered the recorded SAR ratings of all the phones using this antenna.

Since Samsung’s new antenna directed most of the radiation away from the head, it resulted in far lower SAR ratings.

2. So Why Don’t Other Phone Manufacturers Do This?

Well frankly, they don’t have to. The regulations only say that you no longer have to use an omnidirectional antenna and that you have to stay under 1.6 w/kg on SAR tests.

So, not only do phone manufacturers not want to put the money into the research and development, but they also don’t want to admit that there is even a reason to try and achieve lower SAR ratings.

Alright, we’ve talked a lot about SAR ratings when determining the lowest radiation cell phones on the market, so let’s break this down a bit.

3. What Are SAR Ratings?

SAR, or specific absorption rate, is simply a measurement of how much EMF radiation human tissue absorbs from a specific phone.

4. So first, what even is Specific Absorption Rate?

Well, in short, SAR is a measurement of the rate at which body tissue absorbs EMF radiation from a specific phone.

This measurement is used internationally, with different countries having set different legal minimums.

In the United States, the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) published a set of rules in 1996 defining the legal EMF exposure limits.
They decided that no phone sold in the United States could have a SAR rating that exceeded 1.6 w/kg of body weight. So, when tested, the dummy (that represents a person) can’t absorb more than 1.6 watts of radiation for each kg of body weight represented.

The measurements are based on a person holding the phone to their ear for 30 minutes.

Are SAR Ratings A Good Way To Determine Cell Phone Safety?

Probably not.

First of all, these SAR standards were set almost 25 years ago, when cell phones, and our understanding of the dangers of EMF radiation, were far different.

Secondly, SAR standards are only designed to protect users from the dangers of the heat generated by microwave radiation. These standards do not account for the non-ionizing radiation that we now know is harmful, especially via long-term exposure.
SAR ratings also don’t really give us a real world example of the radiation emitted or absorbed, since this will be largely determined by the person using the phone, how the phone is being used, apps on the device, etc.

In fact, the FCC on their website admits that:  “cell phones constantly vary their power to operate at the minimum power necessary for communications; operation at maximum power occurs infrequently. Consequently, cell phones cannot be reliably compared to their overall exposure characteristics on the basis of a single SAR value.

Alright, now let’s answer a few related questions:
How Can I Check The SAR Rating Of My Phone?

There are quite a few ways to check the SAR Rating of a mobile phone, which is why I wrote this post that outlines 7 different ways.

But my favorite, and the one I use most often, is called the “Quick Code” method. Essentially all phone manufacturers are required to have this code protocol that communicates information about the device to the service provider.

There is quite a bit of information contained, and part of that information is the SAR rating of your particular phone.

To use this method, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Open up your phone like you’re about to make a phone call.
  2. Dial exactly this: *#07#
  3. Press send as if you’re about to call that number, and voila, you’ll be presented the information.
  4. Just a quick aside –  I just want to mention that if you’re worried about EMF radiation, there is an E-book that I absolutely cannot recommend any higher called “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs” that I would really encourage you to check out. I didn’t write it, but it’s one of the absolute best resources available. 

What Is The Lowest Radiation Smartphone?

How Can I Reduce My Exposure To Cell Phone Radiation?

I literally outline 17 different ways you can reduce your exposure, with detailed steps on how to do it.

It’s also really, really, important that you have a quality EMF meter, like the Trifield TF2. Not only will this let you accurately measure the EMF radiation from your cell-phone, and determine just how low, or high, that radiation is, but it will also be crucial in any EMF mitigation you attempt.
