In the ranking of the smartphones that emit more radiation we find different models of the iPhone but above all the Chinese devices.
Smartphone and radiation: iPhone among the most dangerous

Punctual like a Swiss watch, the smartphone-radiation topic is back in vogue.

Nowadays, in fact, we are more and more smartphone- dependent: our phone is at our fingertips 24 hours a day, in our pocket while we go to work or on the bedside table when we go to sleep. This is now the normality. But what we keep asking ourselves is whether the radiation emitted by smartphones is really harmful to our health and which models are more or less safe.

At the moment research has not produced concrete and univocal results: we still do not know how much and if the radiations emitted by smartphones are actually harmful. You may also be interested in Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, 5G: dangerous radiation yes or no? We make clarity

From the list, however, emerged a fact: Chinese devices appear in greater quantities among smartphones that emit higher levels of radiation, followed by the iPhone.

The Statist website has compiled and published the list of smartphone models that emit more radiation (which you find below) on the basis of data collected by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz). The institution has in fact a complete and updated database of mobile devices, new and old, and the level of radiation they emit, both in standby and when you place them on the ear to call.

Smartphones that emit more radiation: the ranking

According to the list above, the most dangerous radiation-level phones are the Chinese. In fact, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is in the first place, followed by OnePlus 5T. In fact, the two companies are widely represented in this ranking, with as many as 8 models among the top 16 most risky smartphones.

In any case, we also find the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, respectively in the 9th and 14th place, as well as the Google Pixels, HTC and Sony.

Although there is no universal guideline for a “safe” level of phone radiation, German ecology certification Der Blaue Engel (Blue Angel) certifies only phones that have a specific absorption rate of less than 0.60 watts per kilogram. All the phones present here are more than double this benchmark.

Smartphone and radiation: where is Huawei?

In today’s ranking we note the absence of Huawei: in the list does not appear even a smartphone model of the Chinese company. The data amazes if we consider that in the 2018 ranking Huawei smartphones were present and also in large numbers.

At the top of the list there were still Xiaomi Mi A1 and OnePlus 5T, followed by Huawei starting from Mate 9 up to the P9 Lite.

There were six Huawei smartphones on the list and, in general, the devices to emit more radiation are all of Chinese manufacturers except for the fourth position where we find Nokia.

It should also be noted that the second-ranked attendance level was Apple: there were in fact three iPhone on the list that, despite occupying lower positions, still remained among the smartphones to emit the highest number of radiation.

Instead, the absence of Samsung is surprising: the South Korean house had accumulated many accusations over its devices over the years. In any case, even if it is not yet clear what the damage that radiation can cause to our health is always good to try to avoid keeping your mobile device too close to head, heart and private parts.
