The 10 Best-reviewed Low-SAR phones As Of December 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.

Average Rating:
70%


Description:

The Q6 brings LG's FullVision display to the mid-range market. Previously-seen on the flagship smartphone G6, this feature is characterized by an almost-bezel-free edge-to-edge screen . Combined with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels , the Q6 is left to display an encouraging sharpness of 442DPI . (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.277 w/Kg

#5. The Alcatel GO FLIP

Average Rating:
86%


Description:

The GO FLIP by Alcatel is a clamshell-type phone with its share of hits and misses. Starting off with its camera-related pros and cons, we deem it worthy to mention that its 2-megapixel main sensor is unimpressive for the most part. Of course, phones this type are rarely ever the bearer of amazing photography capabilities -- but since a number of 5-megapixel options already exist in the sub-category, we can't help but to expect a bit more camera resolution from it. However, the fact that it can capture HD videos (that's 720p, for the uninitiated) is no doubt a pro. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific specifications:

    Ear SAR value: 0.53 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.43 w/Kg

#6. The ZTE Max Duo LTE

Average Rating:
70%


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-specific specifications:

    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

#7. The samsung galaxy j7 pro

Average Rating:
72%


Description:

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro peddles a 13-megapixel selfie camera which, Samsung claims, performs nicely even in low-light situations. Resolution-wise, this front-facing camera is already highly-competitive on its own. Samsung supplements this further by offering users the potential convenience of having a movable shutter button and LED flashes on both the rear and front . The 13-megapixel rear camera isn't as compelling as its sibling, but it's nonetheless still respectable. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.567 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.33 w/Kg

#8. The ZTE Grand X 4

Average Rating:
72%


Description:

ZTE's Grand X 4, initially carried by Cricket Wireless, is a health-oriented mid-ranger whose biggest con is its 5.5-inch HD-only (720p) screen , since several similar phablets sport Full HD (1080p) displays in comparison. Also, it opts for a 1.4GHz quad-core processor coupled with a 2GB RAM, while some of its mid-tier rivals run on slightly-faster (around 1.5GHz to 1.7GHz) eight-core chips. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-related features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.78 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.19 w/Kg

#9. The Ulefone Future

Average Rating:
72%


Description:

Ulefone's 5.5-inch Future flexes some flagship-class muscles, in the form of a large 4GB RAM and a Helio P10 eight-core CPU running at 2GHz , but its cons make it sound less-futuristic than we had hoped. (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.226 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.987 w/Kg

More:

#10. The Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus

Average Rating:

Description:

A 4000mAh battery holds shelter inside the Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus. As such, there's no surprise in seeing it boasting a 20-hour video playback time and a 15-hour 4G browsing time . (* Full pros and cons...)

SAR-specific features:

    Ear SAR value: 0.467 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.832 w/Kg
