Is the iPhone 6 is hazardous to health? Comparison with Competitors




According to senior analyst at Mobile Research Group Eldar Murtazin, Apple sells dangerous devices. In his view, typical for Smartphones iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus indicators of radiation of electromagnetic energy are on the verge of allowed and use them “corny unsafe.” Is it really?


Last week on Twitter Murtazin was reported according to which, the new Apple phones emit 3 times more than smartphones from other manufacturers. The analyst has not led a particular amount of radiation, but mentioned the figure SAR, which determines the energy of the electromagnetic field that is released in the body tissues.

SAR – Specific Absorption Rate this electromagnetic energy. They measured the electromagnetic field energy released in the tissues of the human body in one second, and it is projected by the harmful effects of mobile phones on the user.

To obtain permission to sell the electrical companies should earn several certificates that confirm their safety in the materials of the case and the internal components, support for the minimum frequency range and some other permits, one of which is the level of SAR.

Different countries have different standards and requirements with the permissible values. In Europe, adopted explore 10 grams of tissue, the maximum is 2 W / kg. American regulator FCC uses only 1 gram of tissue, the limit value allowed – 1.6 W / kg. Observers Mobiltelefon made comparative table of the top 13 of the radiation of mobile devices, including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5s. It shows both European and American values, separately marked parameters in the body (wearing a pocket) and the ear (talk).


On the European system in the new iPhone is really much higher performance than the competition. However, American data show that the same Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G Pro 2 and Nexus 5 irradiated user stronger. Thus, the claim that the iPhone 6 emit 3 times more than smartphones from other manufacturers, is not true.

Some analysts tend to believe that SAR values ​​have no practical meaning. Firstly, the impact of lower threshold levels do not pose a threat to health. And secondly, the level of radiation depends on the strength of the network signal. Furthermore, the transmitter power can be controlled by the operator communicating with the base station, the decrease of the capacity can be even hundredfold.
