List of cellphones with the highest and lowest emissions

Someone from Microsoft once tweeted to me that smartphones are the super computers of the future. Looking at the current technology that brings in artificial intelligence (AI), GPS (Ground Positioning Systems), and Big Data, it won’t be a hype to say that smartphones will replace the traditional laptops and tablets. But a phone too could be harmful – depending upon how it is built and used! This article looks at a list of phones with the highest and lowest emissions.

We’ve already talked about Phone radiation & whether it can be harmful? We also discussed how Wi-Fi could be dangerous. Now, this post is based on the data released by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection. The German authority had recently conducted research to show us phones with the highest and lowest emission.

Smartphones with the highest emissions

Xiaomi Mi A1 tops the list of phones with highest emissions. Four models of Xiaomi feature in the list embedded below.

At second place is OnePlus whose four models feature in the list of phones with the highest emission. OnePlus 5T is than, OnePlus 6T is in the fourth place on the list. iPhone 7 is also present among other models that feature in the list of phones emitting more radiation that allowed.

Cellphones with the lowest emissions

Samsung is mentioned in the below list of phones with the lowest emissions. This list contains many Samsung models. For example, there is Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy A8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Samsung S8. The others feature the Chinese company ZTE whose three models are listed as shown in the image below.


Please note that these ratings were collected by them while phones were in use. A Bluetooth headset used with the high emission phones can bring down the phone’s emission radioactive risk ranking.

Different phones in different places can act differently. Cellphone towers make a good impact on both the phone and the human using it. Not only these two. It affects the whole ecosystem of living-beings. In a way, we have to acknowledge that radio waves (harmful emissions) will be around until the scientists find another type of carrier that is not harmful. Here’s a post to inform you about how data can be passed using audio waves.
