    Engineering Discipline:
    SAR - Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field.
    According to norms, threshold value for head is : 1.6 W/Kg (Watts/Kg) US/India
    In simpler term, "Less the SAR value, less radiation, and more you safe".
    Here is little comparison of some mobile phone's SAR value

    Samsung Galaxy S5: head SAR : 0.85 W/Kg, Body SAR : 1.55 W/Kg
    LG Nexus 5: 0.92 W/kg (head) 1.23 W/kg (body)
    Iphone 5S : head 1.25 ear
    Moto E: 0.97 W/kg (head) , 1.50 W/kg (body)

    Samsung Galaxy SII : Head 0.475 W/Kg :mrgreen:
    Samsung Galaxy Note II : Head 0.225 W/Kg:thumbsup:
    Finally,Nokia 1100: 0.78 W/kg.

    You can find your device SAR value here:
    (It will redirect to your mobile official site where SAR values has been mentioned)

    What's your mobile phone's SAR value?

    It's not showing results for my device, it says phone model does not exist :p

    Using Samsung GT-S5302
