Smartphones are the most used personal gadgets which we all use and own. Even we reasearch a large amount about their specifications, pricing, and features even though buying it, however we often don’t count the radiation level in our decision. The German Federal Office has conducted reasearch to find gadgets emitting maximum and least radiation. As per data compiled by Statista, online statistics and marketing firm has published radiation data emitted by every popular device. Remarkably, Xiaomi and OnePlus devices have topped the list as the highest radiation emitting gadgets.
Maximum radiation emitting handsets
The most used and preferred devices in the mid-range from OnePlus and Xiaomi are emitting the most radiation. As per the report, Xiaomi Mi A1 emits maximum radiation even though OnePlus 5T joined the list at second place. On the third and fourth position stands Xiaomi Mi Max 3 and OnePlus 6T.

The list Furthermore compiles smartphones from HTC, Google, Apple, Sony, and ZTE. Significantly, Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are the gadgets with the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.38 Wk and 1.32 Wk respectively. Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has In addition made it to the list with the SAR values of 1.33 Wk and 1.39 Wk respectively.
Martin Armstrong, Information, Journalist writes, “In fact, the 2 companies are represented heavily in this list, with eight of the top 16 smartphones being made by one of them.

The tests are done on the basis of criteria set by the German Federal Office for Radiation and Protection. The product is termed in ‘safe’ level when the absorption rate is below 0.60 in watts per kilogram. All the devices listed over emit double the radiation than the benchmark level.
Least radiation emitting smartphones
Surprisingly, most of the Samsung and Motorola devices fall in the least radiation emitting category. The Korean giant’s Galaxy Note 8 carries the least absorption rate of 0.17 watt per kilogram. Even though, the list carries plenty of Samsung gadgets these types of as Galaxy A8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S9+, galaxy J6+, Galaxy J4+, and Galaxy S8.
