  • iPhone 4S Exposes You to Three Times More Radiation Than Samsung Galaxy S III


    The heated debate of picking an Android device or picking an iOS device is always constant. Many people look to compare hardware specs, software features, and many more things but one thing that people probably tend to overlook is the radiation measurement of each device. The company behind the radiation measurement app, Tawkon, recently released an infographic detailing the SAR (a measurement of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to a radio frequency electromagnetic field) score of various popular smartphones.

    Turns out, Apple’s iPhone 4S was the second highest offender with a SAR level of 1.11 w/kg, coming very close to hitting the maximum SAR level allowed by the FCC (which is 1.6 w/kg). In fact, the iPhone 4S tripled the SAR level of the Galaxy S III, which ended up coming in at the bottom of the totem pole with a SAR score of 0.34 w/kg. The level of radiation as well as the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) has been a long controversial topic in regards to smartphones and the effects they have on our bodies. There are several conflicting reports out there and it seems the only thing everyone seems to agree upon is that no one knows exactly what kind of effects the non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by cellphones have on human tissue.



    It is suggested that consumers just be cautious of any level of radiation exposure. While the SAR levels and the maximum level set by the FCC are well below the level at which laboratory testing indicates adverse health effects could occur, it’s always better to be safe than sorry and limit your daily smartphone use (no matter which device you end up using).

      Am not sure about the super-power, but it can surely make you mentally ill and can create mental health issues for you! So its better to be careful. I would personally compromise a little over the style and functionality, but will not compromise on health issues.

      Ya a buddy of mine got a GS3 and had major problems with it, he called samsung tech support and believe or not they sent him some ota patches for known issues with the phone. LMFAO :P Told him WTF?? would a company like that release a phone with known issues?? LOL Sorry but another reason why i stick with iPhone.

      Maybe the extra exposure keeps you from going bald, or enhances your sexual organs. I read somewhere that iPhone users have more sex!

      Radiation doesn't only happen while you're on a phone call.

      I had to restore my ipad because when iCloud was enabled my contacts app wouldn't open and i'm not the only one. The problem was reported in a thread in october 2011. At least your friend got patches the bugs but the iCloud problem continues to exist from version 5 to 5.1.1.
