    You can refer SAR values in user manual. It is relatively low as compared to cheap devices.

    SAR value of OnePlus 2 in India: 0.729 W/kg in Head and 0.329 W/kg in Body.

    These are in the limits of what is approved by the regulatory bodies of Govt.

    A phone cannot get launched if the radiation level or SAR (specific absorption rate) is too high ....the manufacturer already checks it so don't worry.

    OnePlus 2 has one of the highest radiation levels in the world of any phone. Almost 1.6 which is almost the maximum allowed by any law.

    I believe plutonium is used to power the device, this nuclear technology gives it its amazing battery life.

    But no seriously, always make phone calls with your phone about 1 a 2cm away from your head. I always place my thumb between my device and my head to keep it at a distance. The cellular activity really heats up the brain and the effects of cell phones and the heating they cause to the brain is not yet fully discovered since they haven't been around all that long. Also bluetooth uses the same frequency as a microwave, it's not as harmful but you don't need to be a genius to know that it won't be all that healthy as well.

    Also always keep in mind that the weaker your signal the more aggressive the radiation will get.

    A fun fact which people don't always notice is that a lot of phone manufacturers are already covering themselves by saying you should always keep a small distance between the phone and your head in manuals and guidelines. The full effects are something that will become clearer in a couple of decades so they aren't taking chances on future lawsuits I guess.

    Keep in mind that cell phones are a relatively new technology, up until a couple of decades ago doctors were still promoting the health benefits of sigarets and look where that brought us ;-). It's always easy to say something is not bad for your health if it hasn't been around long enough to actually see long-term effects. It's too early to actually tell but it's fair to say that being on the safe side will probably pay off in the future :)
