Between the Apple iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3, have you ever wondered which phone emits more radiation? According to Tawkon (makers of a free app that measures and alerts you when radiation levels get too high), the S3 is safer to use.
According to Tawkon’s SAR infographic, the iPhone 4S is high on the chart at 1.1 W/kg (watts per kilogram). The Samsung Galaxy S3 is clocked at only 0.34 W/kg.
Of course, there is still an ongoing debate whether mobile phones emit enough radiation that can cause brain tumours. However, it’s still better to be safe than sorry. So, if you have the habit of keeping your phone under your pillow when you sleep, you might as well put your phone on your nightstand instead.
The SAR app is available for free on Google Play. It has been pulled from the Apple App Store due to “no interest in the app”. If you’re looking to install the app on your iPhone, you’ll have to jailbreak the device then download the app from Cydia.
