The ANFR warns against the DAS too high of 3 smartphones. A 4th is even removed from the sale.

For Honor 8, Alcatel PIXI and Echo Star, the Specific Absorption Rate - SAR - was measured too high by the ANFR. They must be updated. As for the TP-Link Neffos, it is simply removed from the sale.
Regularly, the National Agency of Frequencies - ANFR carries out tests to measure the DAS of the main smartphones present on the French market. Manufacturers have the obligation to provide this information to consumers, but it is more prudent to control the actual level of radiation ... And in the case of Honor 8, Alcatel Pixi, Echo Star Plus and TP-Link Neffos, it There is a problem of wave emissions.

As revealed by the official statement of the ANFR, the DAS "trunk" (which measures the amount of energy absorbed by the body of the user) is too high on the 3 smartphones. For Alcatel PIXI smartphones manufactured by TCL and Echo Star Plus from Modelabs Mobiles, the measured "trunk" SAR is 2.04 W / kg. After updating, it should be 1.58 W / kg and 1.41 W / kg respectively. As for the Huawei Honor 8, the ANFR has measured a DAS "trunk" of 2.11 W / kg, that the manufacturer update should reduce to 1.45 W / kg.
Since April 25, 2016, the regulatory specific absorption rate must not exceed 2 W / kg, measured at less than 5 mm (compared to 25 mm previously). The owners of the smartphones concerned therefore have an interest in updating their smartphone without waiting. Builders should deploy a patch directly.
