Phonerated periodically monitors reviews of the latest phones and matches them with the SAR rating info we have on file to generate this list of the best Canadian low-SAR phones -- currently as of January 2020.
The maximum SAR rating allowed for Canadian phones to make this list is generally under .70 w/Kg, but can vary depending on phone supply and SAR rating information availability.
* By the way, this low-sar phone best-of also exists for all countries (includes all phones).
Based on this phone's aggregated ranking of 78%, we are confident that the Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge is, as of now, Phonerated's best ZTE phone 2020. Furthermore, we think that our 267 reviews sampled from our sources give us a high confidence level that pushes us to label it a "no-brainer best choice."
The Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge aims to be a performance-focused budget phone with an octa-core (or quad-core, depending on the carrier) 1.4GHz processor and pitches promising longevity specs with a 2600mAh battery, which is coupled with less-demanding 5-megapixel and 2-megapixel main and selfie cameras, respectively
|Average rating: (78%) (267 reviews over 3 sources)|
Based on star rating of 4 averaged over 563 reviews, here is second best ZTE phone. * This list is based on an in-depth computation of hundreds of reviews from across the web.
With its 5-inch HD screen, 2600mAh battery, and 1.5GB RAM, the Galaxy J3 is neither a disappointing nor an overly-impressive mid-tier attempt.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
The LG V30 Plus has a collection of top-of-the-line specs like a 6-inch 2880-pixel by 1440-pixel FullVision display, 16-megapixel + 13-megapixel cameras on its rear, and an IP68 rating against dust and water, but its 5-megapixel selfie shooter and 3300mAh battery make it appear like a less-premium smartphone.
|Average rating: (76%) (86 reviews over 3 sources)|
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 positions itself as one of the lightest and thinnest highly-rugged smartphones there are, with a 9.7mm-thick, 172-gram body that boasts specs like an IP68 water and dust-proof rating and MIL-STD-810G certification against shock, vibrations, and extreme temperature.
|Average rating: (85%) (14 reviews over 2 sources)|
Majority of this phablet's specs, like its 1.4GHz processor, 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie cam, and 3GB RAM, are comfortably-mid-range -- but its 5.5-inch FullVision display gives it a somewhat premium-like character
|Average rating: (77%) (15 reviews over 3 sources)|
The BLU Grand Energy's 4000mAh battery, being significantly larger than what we usually see in similar phones, easily justifies its name tag -- but its other specs, such as the 1.3GHz processor, 1GB RAM, and 5-megapixel main camera, are far from what we'd call grand.
|Average rating: (66%) (58 reviews over 3 sources)|
The 6-inch BLU Studio Mega is a relatively-thick and heavy phablet for the kind of specs that it offers, which include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel main camera, and a 2500mAh battery (which we expect to somewhat struggle in fueling the big 720p display), among others.
|Average rating: (59%) (69 reviews over 3 sources)|
Of all this phone's specs, its clear that HTC's priority has been imaging specs (shown by the 16MP rear cam and the 8MP selfie cam) and the 3000mAh battery, considering that its 3GB RAM is relatively-low and that its Helio P10 processor runs at a maximum speed of only 1.8GHz.
