    Hi there.

    Today I was reading some question about our OnePlus One, and they were asking something that let me a little bit confused, they were asking if the OnePlus One have any kind of certificate that proves that the phone doesn't emits radiation that can be a danger for our health.

    Does anybody knows?

    Let's clarify a few things...

    Radiation is NOT harmful to human cells. IONIC radiation IS.

    You can read a bit more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation

    And see a documentary about radiation here:

    Also, in your own article, it clearly states the following
    So, YOU, yourself, decided to say it is harmful when it has not been proven whatsoever. The thing that you have to read within this article is that some phones, irradiate more than others, and in the extreme case, of it being bad for your health, it is within the permitted limits, that are supposed to be controlled AND within safe limits for the human body.

    We all know that all our electronic devices release some kind of energy. It may be radiation, electromagnetic waves or something else but they sure do. Well in this video, we are going to talk about everything you need to know about your phone. Whether it is causing cancer or not. I will answer all your technical questions. I am Priyank Gada and you are watching 4KTT. Let’s roll the intro meanwhile you can click on the first link to join notification squad.

    Have you ever noticed any numbers printed behind your phone? Decimal numbers or maybe something else. Well, these numbers are nothing else but SAR values i.e. S. A. R. Values which stands for Specific Absorption rate i.e. The rate at which radiations or electromagnetic waves are absorbed in our i.e. human bodies.

    We all know that our phones, it may be a featured phone or a smartphone, our phones usually try to search for networks and to do so, they release some energy which can affect us. This energy is absorbed in our body and is measured as SAR value i.e. watts per kilograms.

    If you are curious enough, this value is actually calculated as per the number from the rate of absorption per 10 grams of body mass.

    What about the higher limit. Well, the suggested higher limit is around 2 watt/kilogram but according to Indian regulatory, 1.6 is the higher limit. Well the limit set by federal communication commission is 1.8 watts/Kg

    How can you find SAR value for your specific phone? Well FCC i.e. Federal Communication Commission provides a list of companies, smartphones, and their specific SAR values. The link to this page will be added in the description.

    Does that mean, a smartphone with SAR value below 1.6 Watt/Kg is ok for your health? Well, the truth is, SAR value alone is not enough to answer this. It also depends on the duration and distance of your phone from your body.

    We always tend to keep our Wireless networks i.e. WiFi and Internet turned on while sleeping and keep chatting with our loved ones on WhatsApp. It is always advised to keep your phone on flight mode and turn off wireless signals while sleeping and as a precaution, keep the phone away from your body.

    There are three types of radiation. Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. Which one are you worried about?

    Put a hot dog next to your OPO. Leave it there for an hour. If the hot dog is not done/cooked in this time, you'll be okay! Not enough radiation to cook your brain.

    This thread is so dumb. Cellular radiation has existed on every cell phone to one extent or another since their inception. Get over it!
