Seems that the Electromagnetic radiation emitted by Huawei Honor 8 is 1.5 watt per kg, which is the highest among all smartphones currently.

The rank of high electromagnetic radiation with some other mobiles (from major to minor) are listed below:

1) Huawei Honor 8 is (1.5 watt per kg)
2) iPhone 7 (1.38 watts per kg)
3) Huawei Honor 5C (1.14 watts per kg)
4) Huawei Honor 7 (1.13 watts per kg)
5) iPhone 6S (0.87 watts per kg)

The list with the smartphones that emit less radiation (from minor to major) is the following one:

1. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (0.264)
2. Lenovo Moto Z (0.304)
3. OnePlus 3 (0.394)
4. Samsung Galaxy S7 (0.406)
5. Huawei Honor 5X (0.560)

From the list, we can see that Honor 8 is having High SAR rate and honor 5X having Low SAR rate in Honor brands.
Hope so this information will be useful before buying your mobile.

High SAR rate is due that the signal receiving capacity of the device is High.

That's a meaningless set of statistics and the article doesn't give any indication of the methodology.

1) A mobile phone is an RF transmitter, running within a given set of statutorily fixed limits. An iPhone 7 will have broadly the same transmit power as any other. The biggest factor will be network conditions, as the phone ramps down it's transmit power as low as it can, so the worse the path to the cell tower, the more power the phone will use.

2) Watts/kg is a good metric for categorising cyclists, useless for mobile phones, unless you have some very peculiar requirements.

The article linked appears to be discussing the long-discredited health effects of mobile phones. Even if there were anything in it, the type of modern mobile phone would be irrelevant - the difference in transmission paths into the head would be in the order of millimeters and the actual transmission power would be almost identical.

Does it mean that if the path to the cell tower is worst, then Honor 8 emits more radiation than others?
And if there is No use with the SAR value, why it is regulated ? Then for what purpose that information is used for?

I pretty much use Google Hangouts over WiFi, I only take incoming text and calls over T-Mo WiFi, which of course isn't available on the Honor 8 yet.

It depends from the connection type and band used.
In my country we have LTE band 7, according to the doc it's just 0.11 :D

Anyway, it's the best to keep the phone as further from your body(especially important organs) as possible.
Those numbers aren't bad at all for B2, B4, or B12. All of which T-Mobile use. If you're on AT&T, your brain might melt a little bit. B5 and B17 numbers are really high!

In India JIO uses Band 5. :(
And I think Indian Honor 6 variant supports only Band 5 sadly.

i cant say that's wrong but i can say since i receive the phone yesterday i cant feel its a value phone with the price i payed !.. even the finger touch into the back feels cheap !..

i am disappointed !

Wrong thread. OP has nothing to do how you feel about your phone.

This is pretty meaningless:

1. Unless you hold your phone exactly like the official test setup is, your result will be wildly different.
2. The highest level allowed is an order of magnitude than the lowest level thought to pose any possible risk.

Just FYI

Quote
______
United States: the FCC requires that phones sold have a SAR level at or below 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg) taken over the volume containing a mass of 1 gram of tissue that is absorbing the most signal.
European Union: CENELEC specify SAR limits within the EU, following IEC standards. For mobile phones, and other such hand-held devices, the SAR limit is 2 W/kg averaged over the 10 g of tissue absorbing the most signal (IEC 62209-1).
India: switched from the EU limits to the US limits for mobile handsets in 2012. Unlike the US, India will not rely solely on SAR measurements provided by manufacturers; random compliance tests are done by a government-run Telecommunication Engineering Center (TEC) SAR Laboratory on handsets and 10% of towers. All handsets must have a hands free mode.[4]

SAR values are heavily dependent on the size of the averaging volume. Without information about the averaging volume used, comparisons between different measurements cannot be made. Thus, the European 10-gram ratings should be compared among themselves, and the American 1-gram ratings should only be compared among themselves.

________

So it looks like the Honor 8 SAR ratings are within the limits prescribed in various parts of the world. Equally importantly, as noted above just quoting a SAR number by itself without reference to the method used for measuring it is quite meaningless for comparing one SAR rating with another!

You are paid to say a lot's of bad things about this phone ?! Ok! We all got the point,you dont like the phone,you sold it and thats all. Over!

    Is this bad then?
    It's how much radiation energy get absorbs into your cranium when you talk on the phone. Or potentially to your balls while the phone is in your pocket.
