The S7 edge has the safest SAR rating of all current flagships, just like S6 edge before it

Along the whole cell phones are dangerous/not dangerous debate shebang, we tend to forget that there is this metric called the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) rating, and all of the phones sold in the US have to keep it on the down low, with the FCC cutoff standing at 1.6w/kg. Thus, the episodic scares about cell phones frying your brains out are usually just that.
phone, that is why it is somewhat intriguing to know which phone amongst the current popular ones in the US has the lowest Head SAR rating. Well, according to our database of phone specs, it is the Galaxy S7 edge, just like the S6 edge before it was the best in that respect, and still is.Nevertheless, everyone's body gets affected by radio emissions differently, and everybody talks for different lengths of time on the
The S7 edge has an exact Head SAR value of only 0.264W/kg, which is pretty amazing. Next in line is the Asus ZenFone 3 at 0.278W/kg, then the Galaxy A5 with 0.290W/kg, and the Moto Z with 0.304W/kg. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus clock in at 1.38W/kg and 1.24W/kg, respectively, while with 1.5W/kg the honor 8 is encroaching on the FCC threshold, but is still within the safe limits.

800$ for one of the highest SAR on a flagship phone combined with one of the worst battery life on a flagship phone for the non plus model. Apple is really trying very hard to convince me that for them they think we are monkeys.

Hello Mister 100-85=25. It seems that you don't sleep at all and made PA your home.

I'm really surprised Apple hasn't targeted this yet, because they've been historically one of the worst since the iPhone 4. If this translated at least in to a better signal/reception, they'd have an argument, but the reception is not better, possibly even worse than the S7.

Much worse compared to S6 vs iPhone 6s:http://m.gsmarena.com/apple_ip
I am thinking S7 is probably better than S6 so you get the picture. ts_come_out_pretty_bad-blog-14677.php

actually this is an old news samsung is doing this for years now my old galaxy note 4 for example noted in the user manual that the device it had an sar rating below the average and below the normal energy level absorbed by the body
