As per a new report on bankless times, smartphones including the Motorola Edge, OnePlus 6T, Sony Pixel, Older Google Pixel models are the highest emitters. Surprisingly, the Motorola Edge tops the list of being the worst emitter closely followed by ZTE’s Axon 11 5G and the OnePlus 6T.
These consumer devices stick with us for the most part of the day, whether we are travelling, at home or even sleeping. However, all the radiation levels are tested and are usually under the electromagnetic spectrum set by countries. Although these don’t harm us in any way, some smartphones do emit more radiation as compared to others – which is of course not good news. These radiofrequency radiations, if amped up, can increase the heat levels of the body part it is placed next to. However, even that is not enough to raise the core temperature of the body or alter the DNA in any way. Nonetheless, it is better to stay away from handsets as much as possible so you don’t get affected in the long run. Here is the full list of smartphones that are emitting high level of radiation.
- – Motorola Edge – 1.79W/Kg
- – ZTE Axon 11 5G – 1.56 W/Kg
- – OnePlus 6T – 1.55 W/Kg
- – Sony Xperia XA2 Plus – 1.41 W/Kg
- – Google Pixel 3 XL – 1.39 W/Kg
- – Google Pixel 4a – 1.37 W/Kg
- – Oppo Reno5 5G – 1.37 W/Kg
However, if you still want to keep the handset as much away as possible, the DoT has issued sime guidelines for it. You can hold the handset as much away from the body as possible, during calls you can use the headset (wired or Bluetooth) instead of placing the smartphone on your ear, don’t press your head against the phone (usually done when lying down) as the RF energy is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source, use the phone where reception is good since the device tends to increase transmission where signals are weak.
