Abstract


In this fast growing world mobile phones has become one of important device in every ones life. It’s been used by all age group people for different application apart from calling and texting. The advance in mobile technology has brought many new applications using mobile. But still one question arises in mind that people really aware of Safety standard especially SAR value. What is SAR value means? It’s the specific absorption ratio measure of amount of radio frequency intensity or energy absorbed by body when using mobile phones. It is defined as the power absorbed per mass of issue and has units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). In this case study I have tried to brief some of the major hazards caused due to more use of mobile phone and also included the base line for getting a mobile phone by comparing with some top
