Tests for SAR are conducted using standardised methods with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power
level in all used frequency bands.
› While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various LG phone models, they are all designed to meet
the relevant guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
› The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is
2W/kg averaged over ten (10) gram of tissue.
› The highest SAR value for this model phone tested by DASY4 for use at the ear is 0.722W/kg (10g) and when worn
on the body is 1.03W/kg (10g).
