Top 10 Best American Low-SAR phones November 2017



This best low-SAR American 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 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, a low-sar phone best-of is also offered for all countries (includes all phones).

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.
