Top 10 Least Radiation-Emitting Cell Phones

September 14th, 2009 · 2 Comments

cell phone radiation risk

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has created an online guide listing (and grading) cell phones now available in the market, according to radiation safety.

Cell phone radiation is a health and safety issue being raised by consumer and health watch organizations, in view of recent studies associating cell phone radiation and long-term cell phone use with increased “risk for brain and salivary gland tumors.”

Here are the best (least radiation-emitting) cell phones out there:

1. Samsung Impression (SGH-a877) [AT&T]
2. Motorola RAZR V8 [CellularONE]
3. Samsung SGH-t229 [T-Mobile]
4. Samsung Rugby (SGH-a837) [AT&T]
5. Samsung Propel Pro (SGH-i627) [AT&T]
6. Samsung Gravity (SGH-t459) [CellularONE, T-Mobile]
7. T-Mobile Sidekick [T-Mobile]
8. LG Xenon (GR500) [AT&T]
9. Motorola Karma QA1 [AT&T]
10.Sanyo Katana II [Kajeet]

See the entire list of 1,000 cell phones catalogued for radiation emission at The Environmental Working Group.

    Radioactive phones! When I first read the headline I thought: “I don’t hope they discovered some element in mobile phones that is radio active” But it is about the cell phone radiation. It is strange to see that first the general public was told that there was no risk at all as the amount of radiation would be too low to damage any living organism. But it seems that times have changed…

    You’re right. The word should have been “radiative” not “radio active” which suggests something related to isotopes and all that. Made the correction, this messed up my url, but couldn’t imagine seeing that mistake permanently plastered on the site.:)
