Top 7 Best Low-sar Phones 2020

This best low-SAR phone list doesn't only list low-SAR phones, it shows the top phones in that category.

MethodologyWe 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.

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.

#4. The BLU Vivo 5 Mini

Average Rating:

There's barely anything in this smartphone that justifies its branding of being the Vivo 5's mini version (save perhaps for the aircraft-grade aluminum housing -- but a lot of BLU phones boast of this feature), as its specs, which include a 5-megapixel main sensor, 512MB of RAM, and 1500mAh's worth of battery power, are all a far cry from what the Vivo 5 offers.

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.59 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.27 w/Kg

#5. The BLU Grand Energy

Average Rating:

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.

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.68 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.35 w/Kg

#6. The BLU Life One X2 Mini

Average Rating:

This Android phone has 4GB's worth of RAM and an inviting 440DPI display (both of which are specs that we see more often in higher-end devices), but it also has a relatively-thick 8.77mm body and an unimpressive 1.4GHz CPU to deal with

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.77 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.28 w/Kg

#7. The HTC One X10

Average Rating:

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.

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.418 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.665 w/Kg
