We at LiveSAFE believe that SAR rating of your phone needs to be a critical aspect in your decision to buy a new smart phone. It is especially important if you are buying the device for your children or an expectant mother. Most cell phone manufacturers mention the radiation on your Cell phone that is SAR value (Specific Absorption Rate) and the unit is Watts/Kg. This feature refers to the amount of radio frequency (RF) energy that your body is exposed to when you are using their cell phone. The SAR value differs from various points, when you’re on a conversation over the call and surfing the phone online and travelling and idle state with data on and when it is turned off.

 

This figure shows you what the effects of usage of cell phone are for a long period of time, and the differences you can refer the above image.
What is a Safe SAR?
Undoubtedly, the safest cell phone that you can use is the one with the lowest SAR. All manufacturers of mobile devices are required by the FCC to meet RF standards and mention the specific absorption rate to consumers.

What are some simple things that each of us can do to reduce the risk of harm from radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices?

LiveSAFE recommends you first, minimize your use of cell phones or cordless phones — use a landline whenever possible. If you do use a cell phone, turn off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if you’re not using them. However, when near a Wi-Fi router, you would be better off using your cell phone on Wi-Fi and turning off the cellular because this will likely result in less radiation exposure than using the cellular network.

Second, distance is your friend. Keeping your cell phone 10 inches away from your body, as compared to one-tenth of an inch, results in a 10,000-fold reduction in exposure. So, keep your phone away from your head and body. Store your phone in a purse or backpack. If you have to put it in your pocket, put it on airplane mode. Text, use wired headphones or speakerphone for calls. Don’t sleep with it next to your head — turn it off or put it in another room.

Third, use your phone only when the signal is strong. Cell phones are programmed to increase radiation when the signal is poor, that is when one or two bars are displayed on your phone. For example, don’t use your phone in an elevator or in a car, as metal structures interfere with the signal.
