Radiation Emitting Smartphone Comparison: Xiaomi and OnePlus have many models located in the highest emission list, while Samsung smartphones “occupy the wave” of safety lists.
The phone has become an object of separation for everyone. With a high intensity of use, a given smartphone will cause negative health effects.
Previous studies have confirmed that radiation for mobile phones is still in a safe range, not enough to pose a health hazard.
However, this does not prevent organizations from researching and measuring to find out which brands are less focused on consumer health.
According to market research firm Statista, leading this list is mostly Chinese branded smartphones such as Xiaomi and OnePlus, while Samsung phones are safer than those evaluated.
Specifically, Xiaomi Mi A1 is the highest radiating smartphone at 1.75 W/Kg.
The second place belongs to OnePlus 5T (1.68 W/Kg).
Although the highest emission is second, they are all within the safe range.
Xiaomi’s other three smartphones also emit highs such as Mi Max3, Mi Mix3 and Redmi Note5.
OnePlus also has 4 models in this list, besides OnePlus 5T, there are OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6.
iPhone 7 is Apple’s only device on the high-emission list announced by Statista. Some other familiar brands are available, such as HTC U12 Life, Desire 12/12+, Google Pixel 3/3 XL and Sony Xperia XZ1.
The largest smartphone manufacturer in the world Samsung does not have any model in the highest emission category, and also dominates the statistics table in the opposite direction.
In the list of the 16 safest smartphones, Samsung accounted for half. Galaxy Note 8 emits at least 0.17 W/Kg. The second is ZTE Axon Elite.
This Chinese technology company also has 3 models in the safety list, along with LG(2 models), Motorola(2 models) and HTC(1 model).
Statista provides statistics according to the list of products on the market of Apple, BlackBerry, Google, HTC, Huawei, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, Samsung, Sony Xiaomi and ZTE until the end of October 2018.
