Everyone uses smartphones and upgrade it to the latest trends. We all look for features like screen, battery, camera, performance etc. Yeah this are all important but there’s something which should be known, because it can affect your health very badly. The thing I want to point out is the SAR value of a smartphone. To make you understand things quickly, it is the radiation of the device.
What is SAR Value?
SAR stands for Specific Absorption Rate. It signifies the amount of radiation which absorbs to the human body. It happens when your smartphone emit radiation via radio frequency and it can affect your health.
The SAR value limit is set by government, and it is different from one country to country. In India the limit is set to 1.6 W/KG. Manufacturers of the smartphones calculate the SAR value before make it available in the market. And the companies can’t sell devices, if it has more than the limit.
How to find the SAR value of your device
To find the SAR value, grab your smartphone and type the USSD code *#07#. Now a screen will come with the information of the SAR value. You can also see the information at the back of the smartphone pack. Every smartphones have different value.
How to defend the Absorption from your device
- Use headsets while calling, and avoid your device keeping on your ears.
- Communicate through texts more.
- Keep away your device when you go to the bed, or if you want to keep the device with you then enable airplane mode.
- Don’t use your device in low network area, because at that time your device search for network and the radiation level will high.
So, check out SAR value of your device and be informed.
