Top 10 Best Low-sar Phones 2017



This best low-SAR phone list doesn't only list low-SAR phones, it shows the top 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 Samsung Galaxy J3

Average Rating:
83%


Description:

With cons like an elementary 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and a 1.5GB RAM that could have been bumped up to 2GB, the LTE-ready Galaxy J3 is shaping up to be a mildly-specked 5-inch HD Super AMOLED Samsung phone. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.618 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.304 w/Kg

Average Rating:
80%


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 Alcatel Pop 4 Plus

Average Rating:
79%


Description:

At a display size of 5.5 inches, the Alcatel Pop 4 Plus is a bigger version of the 5-inch Alcatel Pop 4. As far as imaging pros and cons go, however, it features a watered-down set of camera specs in comparison to its predecessor. While the latter has a 13-and-8-megapixel duo, the Pop 4 Plus has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, instead. Nevertheless, these sensor resolutions are still pretty standard in its market. Where it trails behind is in its max recording resolution of 720p , while many similar options can produce 1080p videos. On the other hand, the fact that the Pop 4 Plus is equipped with an LED selfie flash is a definite pro. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.78 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.18 w/Kg

#4. 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-related specs:

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

#5. The LG Premier LTE

Average Rating:
78%


Description:

Like most other entry-level prepaid Androids, the LG Premier LTE is more of a trivial model than a premier device, with a dated 1GB RAM as well as a low-class 1.2GHz quad-core CPU among its cons. Furthermore, its relatively-large 5.3-inch display dons an HD-only (1280 x 720) resolution , despite Full HD being the obviously-better choice. Lastly, its so-so 2300mAh battery scores a sub-average 264-hour standby time , yet it promises a favorable (at least compared to what many prepaid smartphones offer) 840-minute maximum talk time . (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.74 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.85 w/Kg

#6. The LG Escape 3

Average Rating:
70%


Description:

Like its two predecessors, the LG Escape 3 does not escape the dreaded entry-level market, with specs like an HD-720p-only maximum video recording resolution (many low-ranking Androids capture Full HD 1080p videos) and a near-average 2125mAh battery capacity among its cons. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.66 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.06 w/Kg

More:

#7. The Cat S30

Average Rating:
74%


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-specific specifications:

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

More:

#8. The LG B470

Average Rating:
85%


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

#9. 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-related features:

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

#10. The ZTE Max Duo LTE

Average Rating:
72%


Description:

The ZTE Max Duo takes its name from the chic dual-lens (13- and 2-megapixel cams) setup gracing its rear side, which only a handful of other Androids offered as of its release. This high-end imaging pro is complemented by a maximum video-recording resolution of 4096 x 3072 that is more-promising versus what the majority of 4K-video-enabled models offer (usually just 3840 x 2160). (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.25 (* This is for the CDMA version Z962VL. The SAR value is 0.46w/Kg for the GSM version Z962BL) w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.18 (* This is for the CDMA version. The body SAR value is 1.19w/Kg for the GSM version) w/Kg
