Apple iPhone emits three time the radiation as the Samsung Galaxy S III?
0. phoneArena 20 Jul 2012, 13:24 posted on
A company called tawkon offers an app in the Google Play Store that alerts you when the radiation level on your phone reaches a dangerously high level; the company has released an infograph showing thast the Apple iPhone is three times as likely to turn your brain into scrambled eggs than the Samsung Galaxy S III...

So Apple can delete apps because they think they aren't downloaded/used enough? Complain about Google's market all you want, things like that don't happen with Android.

yeah!! what loosers! they removed bit defender app just for stating that around 40% of apps leak privacy!

I believe this to be 100% accurate because ever since I've started using an iPhone 4S my hair has been falling out; I never had that happen on my DROID RAZR or Android.

Hmm an app that tells you how apples phones is actually shielded far less effectively from radiation that a rival phone gets deleted.....sounds like apple covering up again. The iPhone could be emitting more radiation or perhaps the extra radiation is actually brainwaves apple is sending out to control ifans......i wonder!

Also the Apple stickers that people happily place on their cars are needed to control ifans! Who owns one is doomed.

OH... Like a Zombie, iPhone wants to eat/fry human brain...

"Some believe that Apple had forced the removal of tawkon because it did not present the Apple iPhone in the best light"
This is a problem with Apple...they'll remove a app...just because it may warn user for high radiation...APPLE SHOULD FIX IPHONE INSTEAD.
Also, It explains why iFans behave like f**ktards!

well.. that explains all the iZombies.. radiation over exposure.
Apple removed yet ANOTHER app that didnt make apple seem like the cream of the crop? go figure.
Anyone else remember the "cellphone story" or whatever that app was called.. lol they didnt like that one bit.

Wow the iPhone is dangerous to your health iRadiation? Btw I'm surprised they used the DROID 4 instead of the DROID RAZR. I'm guessing they give off the same radiation.
15. CellieCell (Posts: 118; Member since: 14 Apr 2010)
I don't understand how a cellphone can read radiation levels emanating from your handset, if it could do that than couldn't it detect radiation? Someone please enlighten me. Thank you.

I'm assuming it's calculating it from the amount of power the radio is drawing, and/or the signal level (bars). I'm sure the iPhone does not have a Geiger counter integrated. (But I'm sure Apple has a patent for it.)

What more can u expect from a phone made in CHINA ?

"Some believe that Apple had forced the removal of tawkon because it did not present the Apple iPhone in the best light." This! They are working slavishly to maintain the RDF.
Just like their recent debacle with the brief withdrawal from the EPEAT standards reviews. They made some claims about a different design direction but what it all comes down to is they were afraid they wouldn't receive a high review.
Just as the highly suspect removal of the Bitdefender app as mentioned above.
It all comes down to fear. Fear is the motivator of their actions nowadays. All the petty lawsuits? Fear. Apple is afraid of having to compete.

Apple is afraid of losing the mobile war like they did the computer war. Steve hinted about that when he made the comment about the OG iPhone being patented. We are seeing this just about every day.

It's actually Hawking radiation emitted from the event horizon of the Reality Distortion Field. It's very similar to the phenomenon predicted by physics at the boundary of a black hole. It's caused by outside information entering the field being destroyed, and reassembled in a fashion that won't upset the balance of anyone existing inside the field. ;-)

Often wondered how safe the iPhone antenna design was. I mean, the fact that your hands are in physical contact with it at all times (well unless you have a case but im talking about it in its natural state).
27. andro. (Posts: 1997; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
Even more intriguing is that the iPhone 4$ has two of these antenna types,double the possibilty
46. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
all smartphones have 2 antennas as far as I know. Most just have them at the same point (top or bottom) and not wrapped the entire way around the phone without any kind of grounding. .lol
51. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
It is not only about physical contact.

Haha nice. Maybe these stupid iTards won't be able to reproduce as much then

Let's see how many thumb downs this gets. Apple rules the game so hate all u want
U androiders r jus trolls who search PA all day for apple articles, jus to hate and post crap comments. U guys really really suck.
39. sithman (banned) (Posts: 299; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
That was a good one lol. I had to give it a thumbs up myself.
34. smartphonemad (Posts: 42; Member since: 10 Jul 2012)
That is such a huge generalisation given the amount of people posting on PA. And no, apple does not "rule the game"... Android sales are higher than apples. Check your facts before you post crap. And your spelling too.
38. sithman (banned) (Posts: 299; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
Nope facts r correct. Check your spelling dumb ass generalization is the correct spelling, not generalisation. ANDROID IDIOT!!!

Depends on if he's wrong from America or Great Britain.

Ted I don't know I think it's the same either way

I'm from GB where it's spelt with an s as tedkord has said dumbass

Liar u just used that as an out dumbass. Your ass is from right here in america.

What are you basing that on? You really are clueless :L

I recommend a tin foil hat. To protect what little is left of your iphone irradiated brain my friend.

The good news is that the app lives on in the Google Play Store where Android users can be warned when the radiation on their phone is too high. It is a free app available for users of Android 2.1 and higher.
35. jroc74 (Posts: 5986; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
I actually dont care about the SAR level. Thats one reason why Moto phones have above average reception....higher SAR levels.
If anything....this actually says the iPhone might have better reception than the GS3...lol.

On a side note, I was about to download it but then permissions were pretty scary so now, I don't know...

No wonder APPLE was going to pull out of the EPEAT certification system....

BlackBerry has made its way on top of some tree.
Good to see that... LOL

The World Health Organization has declared that cell phone radiation may be linked to brain cancer. Ten studies connect cell phone radiation to diminished sperm count and sperm damage. Others raise health concerns such as altered brain metabolism, sleep disturbance and behavioral changes in children. Then I researched ways to avoid the danger from cell phone radiation. In the end though, I found a couple of reviews of Pong Research 's cases, that convinced me to give it a try. This case is built with an antenna in between layers of the back cover, which reduce exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, however, I bought a case. Because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.

Studies conducted by numerous scientific teams in several nations have raised troubling questions about possible associations between heavy cell phone use and serious health dangers. That's why I investigated ways to cell phone radiation protection . I read about Pong Research cases, Pong technology is custom-designed for each mobile device and works to redirect radiation away from your head and body. I hesitated about it, anyway, I bought a case Pong because is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.

I read that the cell phones emit a dangerous non-ionizing form of electromagnetic radiation; radiation which can be absorbed by the tissues and cells which come into close contact with the phone. That's why I investigated ways to iphone radiation protection. I read about Pong Research cases, Pong technology is custom-designed for each mobile device and works to redirect radiation away from your head and body.
