Play it safe and keep your phone away from your body and head as much as possible. (Like using earbuds.) 

But first, the Specific absorption rate, or SAR, is measured by how much radiation is emitted when you call with the phone up to your ear. (Nerd time): It’s measured in watts per kilogram of body weight. You don't need to know all the details, just that the legal limit in the U.S. is 1.6 watts/kg.

These models emit the most radiation:

  • Motorola Edge - 1.79
  • OnePlus 6T - 1.55
  • Sony Xperia XA2 Plus - 1.41
  • Google Pixel 3 XL - 1.39 
  • Google Pixel 4a - 1.37
  • Oppo Reno5 5G - 1.37 

These phones emit the least radiation:

Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G - 0.19 watts

Samsung Galaxy Note10 - 0.21

Samsung Galaxy A80 - 0.22

LG G7 ThinQ - 0.24

Motorola Razr 5G - 0.2

The iPhone falls somewhere in the middle.

iPhone SE (2020 version) - 0.98

iPhone 11 - 0.95

iPhone 12 - 0.98

iPhone 13 - 0.99

iPhone 14 - 0.98

Please be safe than sorry. Men don’t store your phone in your pants pockets. Ladies, keep it out of your bra. Here’s why.

Bonus - cleaning putty for your Earbuds, press it, and then pull it off, all the ear wax & dust will be removed. Order the entire kit on Amazon (203PCS Air Pod Cleaner Kit)
