2016 Non-compliant Smartphones

Among the non-compliant smartphones: Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S5.  Attention:  these phones are emitting higher levels of radiofrequency radiation than the manufacturers claim, making them a risk to health, especially for children.

These smartphones could probably no longer be sold. Released in 2016, they no longer respect the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate).

The electromagnetic radiation measured by SAR is subject to more stringent regulation. Surprising consequence: not very old models of smartphones could not pass the new tests.

This is the case, for example, with smartphones from 2016 such as the Acer Liquid Z330, the Haier E50L, the Wiko Fever, the Microsoft Lumia 650, the Huawei P9 and even old flagships such as the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. To become compliant, a simple update of the operating system would suffice on many of these models. For others, it would require a hardware replacement and repositioning of the antenna. 


The National Frequencies Agency has just published the Specific Absorption Rate measurements for a large part of the new smartphones on the market and those recently released. The SAR thus displays the maximum value of the electromagnetic energy that is absorbed by the body. Expressed in watts per kilogram (W / kg), it is the subject of a new official standard (less than 2W / kg at 5 mm distance). It is this level that would make some models non-marketable in France.
