Smartphones are known to radiate low levels of radio frequency (RF) energy through their antennas. The parts of the body closest to the antennas can absorb this energy, though this does not mean that such radiation is bad or affects you negatively.
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the measure of the rate at which a human body absorbs energy per unit mass when exposed to RF radiation. Cell phones are regulated so that their SAR levels do not exceed the established levels; in Europe they are capped at 2.0 W/kg and in the United States at 1.6 W/kg.

how to know the SAR of your cell phone?
You can easily check the SAR value of a phone by accessing the dialer to call and typing the following code “# 07 #”.
Manufacturers also usually mention the SAR value of the phone on the box the phone comes in or on the official website of each model.
Apps to measure the radiation of your Xiaomi phone
If you still do not get to know the SAR value of your phone, you can download some apps that are free and these will tell you the values that your cell phone has.
The first application would be Magna Radiation Protection , and as a second option you can try the app SAR Watch – Tracking Radiation Exposure. Both of them have the free version, so you don’t need anything else and you can download them from the play store and know the SAR value of your cell phone.
