This best low-SAR phone list doesn't only list low-SAR phones, it shows the top phones in that category.
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:
The best phones that meet these critieria are then presented from the top rated to the lowest rated cell phone.
- A low ear SAR value of no more than 0.66 W/kg.
- A body SAR rating of less than 0.67 W/kg.
BLU's 2015 Life One XL seems to breath new life to the brand's high-end series, listing a 64-bit processor and a 13-megapixel Full HD camera among its pros. It also dons a sandstone-based casing , claiming to be centered towards comfort in the hand. (Full pros and cons...)
The 4.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is an Android geared towards users shopping on a tight budget, though its core pros do include LTE connectivity , making it a rather cheap ticket into 4G networks. The Ultra Power Saving Mode that assists its 2000mAh battery sounds quite handy as well. (Full pros and cons...)
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
Despite mimicking the Samsung Galaxy Alpha's full metal unibody casing, the Galaxy A5 does not appear to reach flagship heights. Instead, it settles for a more modest 1.2GHz quad-core engine with 2GB worth of RAM -- the Alpha runs on a split octa-core processor. The lack of 4K video-recording capability was also quite a setback, though its 13- and 5-megapixel cameras are slightly more capable compared to the Alpha's 12- and 2.1-megapixel cams respectively. Its 16GB native storage as well as the up-to-64GB memory expansion support were also quite appreciable. From the looks of it, the Samsung Galaxy A5 is an Alpha-inspired model within a cheaper price range, which might have been Samsung's plan to begin with. (Full pros and cons...)
The 5.2-inch Galaxy Grand Max has the makings of a typical mid-range Android, though it appears to pack a rather common mix of pros and cons, too. (Full pros and cons...)
With only a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 0.5GB RAM , we were quite disappointed with the Galaxy J1's cons. Its 2-megapixel sub-cam was quite a letdown, too , but at least, it supports gesture-initiated selfies . A couple of its other pros are the up-to-128GB external memory support and the Ultra Power Saving Mode , which should give its 1850mAh battery power a slight boost on low power levels. (Full pros and cons...)
LG expands their basic flip phone family with the 441G, a clamshell equipped with dual displays , consisting of a 2.2-inch (220 x 176) LCD main screen and a 0.98-inch monochrome caller ID external interface. It also comes with a text-to-speech function , which reads out selected strings of texts for those who have slightly-impaired eyesight. (Full pros and cons...)
Other than a SIM card slot, the Microsoft Lumia 535 appears to pack an identical set of pros and cons as its dual-SIM sibling. (Full pros and cons...)
The F4NR is apparently the same device as the F4N, which was released roughly a year before it. Its mix of pros and cons is nothing new by basic phone standards, though it is headlined by dual displays -- a familiar detail among clamshells. Its internal display is a 2.2-inch QCIF TFT screen, while a 0.98-inch monochrome notification display sits on its lid. Right above its outside screen is a 1.3-megapixel camera , a feature that many older flip phones forgo. the F4NR also comes with a text-to-speech function , likely helping out those who have trouble following long stings of text. (Full pros and cons...)
Even though the Lenovo Vibe X2 comes with a smaller screen (5 inches) and a lower battery capacity (2300mAh) than its X2 Pro sibling (5.5-inch screen, 2410mAh battery), we nonetheless get a high-end vibe off its 4G LTE connectivity and 13-megapixel rear-facing camera . Also, its MediaTek True8Core octa-core processor (2GHz + 1.7GHz) runs on higher clock rates than the X2 Pro's Qualcomm chip (1.5GHz + 1GHz), with a similar 2GB RAM on board. The Vibe X2's main pro, however, might be its multi-layered design , as not many phones in this class bother to dress up as much. Moreover, its 0.223 head and 0.192 body EU SAR values (0.589 head and 0.375 body for IN and US) are extremely low. The lack of a microSD card slot (32GB internal memory) might be a disgruntling con for many members of its high-end clientele, however. (Full pros and cons...)
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...)
