The cellular transmission SAR values for the Google Pixel 5 (FCC ID A4RGD1YQ) are 1.16 W/kg (watts per kilogram) at the head and 1.18 W/kg when worn on the body. The hotspot/Airplay SAR level is 0.98 W/kg. The simultaneous transmission SAR values for Pixel 5 (cellular plus Wi-Fi) is 0.98 W/kg at the head, 1.49 W/kg when worn on the body, and 1.58 W/kg when used as a hotspot simultaneously with other transmitters active.
Google Pixel 5 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 5 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 18.4%, and you can lower exposure to the body by 20.6%, 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 61.2% according to the FCC SAR report for device number A4RGD1YQ.
