Top 10 Best American Low-sar Phones 2017



This top rated low-SAR American phone list doesn't merely list low-SAR phones, it lists the top phones in that category.

Methodology
We start with a list of the top rated American 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 American phones that meet these critieria are then presented from the top rated to the lowest rated cell phone.

* By the way, this low-sar phone best-of also exists for all countries (includes all phones).

#1. The Huawei P8lite

Average Star Rating:
81%

Description

The Huawei P8lite, as its name suggests, is an offshoot of the original P8 that dials down several of its key specs. These include its slightly smaller 5-inch screen and lower clock speed at 1.2GHz, though it nicely retains the octa-core architecture. It also lists an HDR noise reduction system under its selling points. The P8lite also brings back the 13-megapixel BSI back-facing sensor offered by the P8, but it comes with a less-capable 5-megapixel selfie cam. Topping off its mid-range profile are a 16GB internal memory and a 2GB RAM.
