    Default Not good for the Droid Maxx?

    Looks like this phone has the highest radiation output. I'm not versed enough to know how bad this is. I can only guess.

    Another way to look at it is all things that conduct electricity puts out radiation. Your whole house emits radiation in this way. I know cell phones emit more due to the radios as well, but for me this isn't something that I am overly concerned about.

    Yeah, those're only numbers. Could be idle, could be full radio use, they don't say.

    Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for Cellular Telephones | FCC.gov

    Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
    Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) For Cell Phones: What It Means For You | FCC.gov

    There is considerable confusion and misunderstanding about the meaning of the maximum reported Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values for cell phones (and other wireless devices)...

    ... Many people mistakenly assume that using a cell phone with a lower reported SAR value necessarily decreases a user’s exposure to RF emissions, or is somehow “safer” than using a cell phone with a high SAR value...

    ...The FCC requires that cell phone manufacturers conduct their SAR testing to include the most severe, worst-case (and highest power) operating conditions for all the frequency bands used in the USA for that cell phone. [...] FCC approval means that the device will never exceed the maximum levels of consumer RF exposure permitted by federal guidelines, but it does not indicate the amount of RF exposure consumers experience during normal use of the device.

    Does anyone actually hold it to their much anymore anyway? Seems kind of moot with speakerphones and headsets and the fact that they're not even phones for us most of the time.

    Wow. 1.6 watts per kilogram. Just be sure not to turn on any 100 watt light bulbs in any rooms with children. Oh, and don't stand in front of cars with their headlights on. And all night time sporting events are out too. Let's not talk about solar radiation!

    Seriously . . . does anyone know how this compares to the radiation generated by a typical wi-fi router? I have a relative who works for a cell phone company who will turn on his wi-fi router only for short periods so that his children don't receive too much radiation. Is wi-fi a major source radiation, compared to a cell phone?

    Seriously. You get more radiation heating up a cup of coffee in the microwave. No one seems to scoff at getting an MRI, and one of those will dose you with more radiation than having a cell phone next to your head from birth to end of life would.

    But who knows, maybe chicken little is on to something. The sky will fall on us. The world may actually be flat and politicians might actually have our best interest at heart. If all that's true, then scientists getting paid by government agencies are probably releasing reliable information.
