Now that we are getting more and more aware of the risks that mobile phones and radiations cause. I want to know if the Chinese phones come with a compromise in safety?

As long as they carry one or more of the national and international certification labels they should meet the minimum federal safety standards. Assuming you are referring to the US market.

I can't find the link I saw last year that showed what each certification label represented. If I recall there are 4 or 5 that apply world wide. Depending on where the device will be used they carry one or more certification labels. I find it unlikely that a retailer would sell a phone that does not carry a certification label.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Certification labels are printed on the user manuals with font of size 8.

You're better off searching the internet for this kind of question. Pick a phone you're interested in and then do a search on it's certifications and reviews.

I am not that tech savvy, but I guess you should look at the SAR value of the device. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specific_absorption_rate

I still do not prefer cheap chinese phone. I often find issues with phone overheating, battery exploision etc.

You might do better to buy a second hand main brand phone if price is the issue. If you have any doubts about a phone, it's not worth the risk. Happy phoning!
