Google Pixel 3 Safety Tip: Turning Off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Reduces Radiation.
This SAR chart reveals how turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your Google Pixel 3 can significantly reduce your exposure to radiation. Our SAR comparison chart shows that by simply turning off these transmitters, you can lower the RF radiation exposure to your head by %, and you can lower exposure to the body by %, when considering these differences between cellular-only (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth OFF) and simultaneous use exposure (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth ON), a wise way to reduce excessive phone radiation is to tap off unnecessary transmitters when not in use. Additionally, when using your phone as a hotspot, turning off Bluetooth can reduce your exposure by up to % according to the FCC SAR report for device number A4RG013A.

Avoid Excessive pixel-3 Cell Phone Radiation!
To minimize the potential health risks associated with cell phone radiation, it’s important to reduce exposure as much as possible. This can be achieved by using hands-free devices and keeping the phone away from the body, as well as by using a phone case with built-in radiation shielding technology.
The best example is the RF Safe® pixel-3 QuantaCase™ RFS1. This case is designed to deflect the strongest line-of-sight radiation away from the body while not obstructing the phone’s antenna. RF shielding technology reduces excessive radiation exposure across a wide range of radio frequencies, including 5G, Wi-Fi, and cellular. Additionally, the case features an integrated single-slot RFID-blocking wallet for added security.
The QuantaCase RFS1 provides RFID and anti-radiation protection without any conductive or signal-impeding components in the back of the case, allowing the phone to operate at its lowest possible output level and reducing the amount of harmful radiation emitted. The case also protects the phone from scratches, cracks, and dings.
To use the RF Safe® pixel-3 QuantaCase™ RFS1 effectively, it’s recommended to always close the front flip cover and use the speakerphone when privacy is not an issue. When storing in a pocket, face the front flap towards the body to deflect the strongest line-of-sight radiation. When texting, fold the flap behind the phone to shield the back while held in hand.
It’s important to keep in mind that maintaining a distance from the phone is the best way to reduce EMF exposure. However, using a phone case with built-in radiation shielding technology like the RF Safe® pixel-3 QuantaCase™ RFS1 can provide an extra layer of protection in an ultra-thin design.
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of a mobile device measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body during device usage.
The SAR values for the pixel-3 (FCC ID A4RG013A) are as follows:
- 1.34 W/kg when held at the head with cellular transmission only
- 1.34 W/kg when worn on the body with cellular transmission only
- when used as a Hotspot simultaneously with other transmitters active.

US SAR Ratings
USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg - FCC SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over ONE gram of simulated biological tissue.
Head SAR Level
SAR test when held against your head when only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active 1.34 W/kg
Body SAR Level
SAR test when held against your body only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active 1.34 W/kg
The highest possible SAR recorded with ALL transmitters active, Cellular, WiFi, and Hotspot 1.59 W/kg
The highest possible SAR test when held against your BODY using the phone as a hotspot with cellular and WiFi transmitters active, 1.34 W/kg
EU SAR Level
EU SAR Ratings
European Legal Limit is 2.0 W/kg - EU SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over TEN grams of simulated biological tissue.
Head SAR Level
Body SAR Level
The SAR standard was developed to protect users only from the acute effects of the heat generated by microwave radiation (i.e., the thermal effect). The SAR limit does not protect users from the non-thermal effects of cell phone radiation.
The maximum reported SAR Levels for a Pixel 3 (FCCID A4RG013A) are as follows: Head 1.34 W/kg, Body 1.34 W/kg, Simultaneous Transmission 1.59 W/kg and Wireless Router 1.34 W/kg
According to Google, the Pixel 3 has been tested and meets applicable limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) refers to the rate at which the body absorbs RF energy. The SAR limit is 1.6 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 1 gram of tissue and 2.0 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 10 grams of tissue. During testing, the Pixel phones are set to their highest transmission levels and placed in positions that simulate use against the head, with no separation, and near the body, with 10mm separation.
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories. Carry the Pixel 3 at least 10mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified.
Although this device has been tested to determine SAR in each band of operation, not all bands are available in all areas. Bands are dependent on your service provider’s wireless and roaming networks.
