Complete List Of Samsung Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Levels For Carrier Supported Phones

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires all cell phones sold in the USA not to exceed a maximum Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 1.6 watts per kilogram averaged over one gram of tissue. However, with increasing pressure from doctors and scientists for more robust safety regulations, there is a growing concern that the current SAR standards are not enough to protect the public from the hazards of microwave radiation exposure.

It is important to note that the SAR values are just one aspect of evaluating a cell phone’s potential impact on health. There are many other factors to consider, such as the duration and frequency of usage, the proximity of the phone to the body, and individual susceptibility to the effects of EMF radiation. While the SAR values provide a baseline for comparison, they are not the only or definitive measure of safety. Additionally, the SAR testing guidelines are based on outdated assumptions about the dangers of microwave radiation and do not take into account the long-term effects of non-ionizing radiation. Therefore, it is recommended to use protective accessories such as a QuantaCase and QuantaBuds air-tube headset to reduce exposure to EMF radiation.

Head SAR: The Head SAR test measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the head when using a phone against the head. This is an important measurement to consider as the head is close to the brain and repeated exposure to high levels of radio frequency energy in this area may have potential health effects.

The SAR levels for carrier-supported Samsung phones sold in the USA and the results are shown in the charts below:

SAMSUNG HEAD SAR LEVELS

The top ten lowest Samsung head SAR test results have SAR levels ranging from 0.19 W/kg to 0.39 W/kg, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G taking the first place with a head SAR level of 0.19 W/kg, which is 11.88% of the legal limit. The Samsung Galaxy A70 takes second place with a head SAR level of 0.26 W/kg, which is 16.25% of the legal limit. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S10 5G both tie for third place with a head SAR level of 0.27 W/kg and 0.30 W/kg, respectively. The rest of the top ten Samsung phones have head SAR levels ranging from 0.34 W/kg to 0.39 W/kg, with the Samsung Galaxy S10 being in the tenth place with a head SAR level of 0.39 W/kg.

The Samsung head SAR levels for places 11-20 show a range from 0.41 W/kg to 0.71 W/kg, with a corresponding legal limit range from 25.63% to 44.38% of the maximum SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg set by the FCC. Models such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, S10 Plus, and S7 all fall in the lower end of this range, with head SAR levels of 0.41 W/kg. On the other hand, models such as the Samsung Galaxy A33 and A23 5G have higher head SAR levels of 0.71 W/kg and 0.68 W/kg, respectively.

It is important to note that Safe Cellular Phones recommends that children not use a phone with a head SAR level above 45% of the legal limit of 1.6 W/kg. This is because current SAR testing guidelines simulate an adult male with a 2mm thick skull. Children, however, have much thinner skulls and therefore absorb more microwave radiation than adults at the same SAR level. For this reason, it is essential to be mindful of the head SAR levels of the phones used by children and to choose devices with lower SAR levels for their health and safety.

 

The Samsung head SAR levels for phones ranked 21-30 fall within the range of 45-49.38% of the legal limit of 1.6 W/kg. These levels are considered to be higher than the top 10 lowest head SAR levels but still within the legal limit. However, it is important to note that SAR levels above 45% of the legal limit may pose a potential health risk, particularly for children who have a thinner skull and absorb more microwave radiation than adults.

The SAR levels of the Samsung phones in ranks 31-40 show a higher level of exposure compared to the previous ranks. At these levels, it is recommended to exercise caution and consider using an air-tube headset for private conversation, especially for non-adults as their skulls are approximately half as thick as an adult’s. The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra all have head SAR values at 0.94 W/kg, which is 58.75% of the legal limit. The Samsung Galaxy A22, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and Samsung Galaxy A50S are tied at 36th place with a head SAR of 0.98 W/kg, which is 61.25% of the legal limit. The Samsung Galaxy S22, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, and Samsung Galaxy S20 all have head SAR values above 1 W/kg, with the Samsung Galaxy S20 having the highest head SAR of 1.07 W/kg, which is 66.88% of the legal limit.

The SAR values for Samsung phones in the 41-45 place range are higher than the previous rankings, with the highest being the Samsung Galaxy A13 at 1.27 W/kg (79.38% of the legal limit). It is important to note that when the manufacturer’s recommended separation distance is not followed, actual exposure levels can exceed the tested SAR values. For this reason, it is recommended to use an air tube headset, such as QuantaCase and QuantaBuds, for all age groups to minimize exposure to microwave radiation.

SAMSUNG BODY SAR LEVELS

It’s important to note that the Samsung head SAR test is just one of several important values to consider when evaluating the potential health effects of a Samsung phone. It’s also important to consider the Body SAR test, which measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when holding the phone against the body. Understanding both head and body SAR values is crucial to determining the overall safety of a Samsung phone.

 

Body SAR: The Body SAR test measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when holding a phone against the body. This value is important to consider as prolonged exposure to high levels of radio frequency energy on the body can have potential health effects.

Hotspot/Airplay SAR: The Hotspot/Airplay SAR test measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a phone as a hotspot or using Airplay to transmit data wirelessly. This value is important to consider as using a phone as a hotspot or using Airplay for extended periods of time can result in prolonged exposure to high levels of radio frequency energy.

Simultaneous Transmission SAR (Head, Body, Hotspot): The Simultaneous Transmission SAR test measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the head, body, and hotspot when using a phone for cellular transmission and Wi-Fi transmission simultaneously. This value is important to consider as simultaneous use of cellular and Wi-Fi transmission can result in higher levels of radio frequency energy exposure.

Extremities SAR: The Extremities SAR test measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the hands and feet when using a phone. This value is important to consider as repeated exposure to high levels of radio frequency energy in these areas may have potential health effects.

  • Head: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the head when using a phone near the head.
  • Body: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when holding a phone against the body.
  • Hotspot/Airplay: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using the phone as a hotspot/Airplay device.
  • Simultaneous Head: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the head when using a phone near the head and simultaneously transmitting data over cellular and Wi-Fi.
  • Simultaneous Body: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when holding a phone against the body and simultaneously transmitting data over cellular and Wi-Fi.
  • Simultaneous Hotspot: Measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using the phone as a hotspot/Airplay device and simultaneously transmitting data over cellular and Wi-Fi.
