Invisible energy: the SAR levels of Xiaomi smartphones

Xiaomi smartphones have become popular due to its excellent ratio of price and performance. On such parameter as the level of electromagnetic radiation device, today few people pay attention to, but the forum members MIUI decided to play it safe and check the SAR values for some models.

Xiaomi smartphones have become popular due to its excellent ratio of price and performance. On such parameter as the level of electromagnetic radiation device, today few people pay attention to, but the forum members MIUI decided to play it safe and check the SAR values for some models. It turned out that the Chinese company fits into the requirements of the European Union, although the rates can differ by several times depending on the specific apparatus.
Safe Xiaomi Mi 5

The SAR indicates how much electromagnetic energy is absorbed in tissues of the human body in one second. According to the requirement of the European regulators, the radiation must not exceed 2 W/kg for 10 grams. The safest from this point of view are the Xiaomi Mi 5 with the index of 0.328 W/kg, budget 2016 3 Redmi and Redmi Note Pro 3 Pro, and the fall flagship Mi 5s. The maximum value is 1.49 W/kg, for example, the new Xiaomi Redmi 4. In descending order:

How to protect yourself

Scientists have not been able to find direct evidence of the harmful effects of radiation mobile devices in the human body, but to reduce risks. Enough to keep the smartphone away from your body and use a headset during a call. The signal strength decreases inversely proportional to the square of the distance.
