  1. This article forgets to mention what is probably the most important factor in cell phone selection…which most people do not even consider. This is something that you won’t find advertised, except in fine print if even that. It is called SAR – (Specific Absorption Rate) the rate at which your body absorbs the radiation emitted by the cell phone. Each phone has an SAR number; as in 1.14 W/kg. That’s watts per kilogram of body tissue.

    From my research I have found that Samsung has the lowest SAR numbers. IPhone is among the highest. Children under 12 should never even use a cell phone. The smaller the child, the more radiation is absorbed into their head or body. We now know that constant exposure is a cause of cancer.
    I really struggled with this… while balancing the factors of cost and features of cell phones. But I also through watching various you tube videos found that there are many phone cases that while protecting the glass, purport to shield people from the radiation. People have tested them on videos.

    The winner is ” ‘RF Safe’ Graphene cell phone case ” It brings the meter down to almost zero when tested on the shielded front side of the case. According to this company, it is important to leave the back un-shielded so the phone can properly connect with the cell tower and not be forced to ramp up it’s signal. So one keeps the front cover closed to shield his head when talking on the phone. The shielded front cover should always be between the person and the phone, whether in a pocket or purse.

    So, to me, this is the only smart way to own a smart phone. The other bells and whistles are secondary.
    I also found that the one year prepaid allows me to pay about 10./month for service. If you are using a phone minimally as I am, it’s important to know that at least two larger companies – Verizon and AT&T take what’s left of the 365 day prepay amount at the end of the period. But Tracfone allows you to top it off just before it expires and roll over the minutes. Happy shopping.
