Top 10 Best Low-sar Phones 2017



This top rated low-SAR phone list doesn't just list low-SAR phones, it reports on the best phones in that category.

Methodology
We start with a list of the top rated cell phones and we keep only the cell phones which fit one of these two situation:

  1. As of 2017, we set the low ear SAR value to no more than 0.86 W/kg.
  2. ...And we removed the minimum for body SAR rating, assuming that users worried about cell phone radiation are mostly concerned with the effect it may have on their brain.
Consequently, the best phones that meet these critieria are then presented from the top rated to the lowest rated cell phone.

#1. The Lenovo K4 Note

Average Rating:
76%


Description:

An initial 2016 model for Lenovo, the 5.5-inch Full HD Lenovo K4 Note's specs are composed of some high-scoring pros, but we caught a couple of minor cons as well. Among its setbacks is the fixed-focus capacity of its 5-megapixel selfie camera, knowing that several other brands dabbled with autofocus- and flash-equipped sub-cams months prior to its release. A higher clock rate (it is clocked at 1.3GHz) could have made a difference as well, especially for a phone with eight CPU cores and 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM . (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific specifications:

    Ear SAR value: 0.844 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.711 w/Kg

#2. The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro

Average Rating:
74%


Description:

Even though it brings back the original On5's unexceptional 5-inch HD-720p display and runs on a conventional 1.3GHz quad-core CPU , the Galaxy On5 Pro comes with a couple more turn-ons over its base model. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific specifications:

    Ear SAR value: 0.551 w/Kg

#3. The vivo Y15S

Average Rating:
96%


Description:

Running on vivo's signature Funtouch OS (version 2.1) , which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, the 4.5-inch (854 x 480) vivo Y15S tries to give the typical entry-level formula a slight twist, with pros like an up-to-128GB external memory support as well as the Smart Wake swipe-to-command feature. That being said, it almost feels weird not seeing 4G LTE on the pros and cons list of a 2015 pitch from vivo. We also find its 1900mAh battery power somewhat underwhelming, knowing that many other budget-class Androids (as of its release) have 2000mAh or higher in the tank. Its 5- and 2-megapixel cameras don't thrill us, either. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.62 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.59 w/Kg

#4. The OnePlus Two

Average Rating:
78%


Description:

While it fails to feature a Quad HD (2160p) screen resolution and a microSD card slot (a common weak point among premium smartphones), the OnePlus 2's pros and cons seem to be more than enough to titillate tech-savvy users like you and us. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.795 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.447 w/Kg

#5. The ZTE Cymbal-T

Average Rating:
80%


Description:

ZTE's Cymbal-T drops a rare beat in the mobile world, combining an Android-run touchscreen interface with the classic flip form factor , which could be a big pro, for users who still prefer clamshell phones. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.49 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.96 w/Kg

#6. The LG B470

Average Rating:
87%


Description:

Though we caught a couple of cons in its lack of microSD support and run-of-the-mill 950mAh battery capacity , the LG B470's pros make it a rather acceptable 2016 Q1 flip phone. Its selling points include a 1.3-megapixel camera , which anyone would appreciate over the sub-standard VGA camera type, and a 3G UMTS network connectivity (some similar models settle for basic 2G). (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.47 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.56 w/Kg

More:

#7. The Cat S30

Average Rating:
90%


Description:

Cat maintains their focus towards craggy smartphones with the S30, a 4.5-inch FWVGA Android equipped with a Gorilla Glass 3 screen layer (for scratch resistance), an IP68-certification (waterproof) , and MIL-SPEC 810G craftsmanship (shockproof) . Matching those physical pros is a 3000mAh battery , which we have seen on way more pricey models. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.56 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.11 w/Kg

More:

#8. The LANDVO XM100

Average Rating:
80%


Description:

Although cons like a qHD-540p 5-inch display , a disgusting 24-hour-only standby time (2000mAh battery), and a 3G-only network reach are among its specs, the unlocked LANDVO XM100 still looks for a decent entry-level shelf spot with its pros. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific specifications:

    Ear SAR value: 0.671 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.038 w/Kg

#9. The Samsung Galaxy J1 Duos

Average Rating:
65%


Description:

Merely a version of Samsung's entry-level Galaxy J1 rigged with an extra SIM card slot , the Samsung Galaxy J1 Duos shares its base model's cons, including a 3G-only network reach (though there is a J1 4G variant), a WVGA-480p 4.3-inch display , and a two-core-only 1.2GHz processor (only 512MB of RAM). It also does not go beyond 1850mAh of battery power , despite the average as of its release standing at roughly 2000mAh. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific specifications:

    Ear SAR value: 0.539 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.334 w/Kg

#10. The ZTE Citrine LTE

A picture of the ZTE Citrine LTE.
Average Rating:
74%


Description:

The ZTE Citrine LTE is apparently not as radiant as the color that it brings to mind. In fact, its specs, which include cons like a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera (a highly disappointing feature, especially for a 2016-released Android) and a puny 4-inch WVGA-480p screen , are awfully gloomy. Additionally, it settles for a below-average 1650mAh battery capacity and unsurprisingly runs on a 1.1GHz quad-core CPU assisted by a 1GB-only RAM . (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.75 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.20 w/Kg
