Despite the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung still released a strong market as of March of this year. Thank you to Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for having great sales. With poor reception for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the Galaxy S7 Edge is quickly becoming a cult favorite. Indeed, Samsung Galaxy S7 is one of the smartphones who gained great market.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Is The Safest Smartphone

Exceptional features, specs, looks and display really make both Samsung flagships a real hit for the stage. According to a new research, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is considered as the safest smartphone of 2016, as of now. As reported by Inquisitr, every phone in the United States is monitored by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), so if the smartphone makes it to the market, it means that the gadget meets the safety standards of the FCC.

All smartphones have the so-called electromagnetic emissions present in gadgets and the FCC measures these emissions via a unit called Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). To make sure that a smartphone does not pose health hazards to the users, the FCC sets a 1.6w/kg SAR as the maximum allowable amount of electromagnetic emissions. This means the lower the SAR, the safer the phone. IF the SAR is higher, then well that smartphone could trigger danger.

SAR Value Of Other Smartphones

Inferse reported that Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge measures a Head SAR value of 0.264w/kg, making it one the safest phones that a consumer can buy, in terms of electromagnetic emissions. Comparing the other smartphone, we have the Asus ZenFone 3 at 0.278w/kg, the Galaxy A5 at 0.290w/kg, and the Lenovo Moto Z at 0.304w/kg.

On the other side of the scale, we see Apple’s iPhone 7 with SAR value of 1.38w/kg and the iPhone 7 Plus, with 1.24w/kg. Nearly tipping the scale, the Huawei Honor 8 measures 1.5w/kg on the scale. Remember that the set maximum value according to FCC is 1.6 w/kg SAR. Therefore, it is very risky to use the Apple iPhone 7, 7 Plus and Huawei Honor 8.
