Top 10 Best Low-sar Phones 2020

This top rated low-SAR phone list doesn't just list low-SAR phones, it reports on the best 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.

Average Rating:

The Alcatel Pop 4 Plus' set of hits and misses gives it the vibe of a youth-oriented smartphone, for it seems to focus more on its imaging specs (through LED flash-equipped 8- and 5-megapixel cameras) and brushed metallic appearance while scaling back on its 1.1GHz processor and 2500mAh battery

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.78 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.18 w/Kg

Average Rating:

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

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.277 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 1.54 w/Kg

#7. 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

#8. The Alcatel Pixi Theatre

Average Rating:

The six-inch Alcatel Pixi Theatre, marketed mainly as a budget option for fans of large phone displays, offers several promising specs like 2GB of RAM, a 2580mAh battery, and a Dragontail glass screen, all of which coexist with less-impressive features like a 2-megapixel selfie cam and a CPU speed of 1.1GHz.

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.44 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.53 w/Kg

#9. The BLU Studio Mega

Average Rating:

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.

Quick Specs:

    Ear SAR value: 0.74 w/Kg
    Body SAR Rating: 0.63 w/Kg

#10. 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
