Does rooting a phone reduce or increase the amount of EMF radiation it produce

    I just got a Galaxy S21 Ultra and it hurts my head whenever I'm around it too much (especially on a call). I am wondering if this is something that can be altered in the software so that it's safer to use, or whether it might be a hardware issue. Do EMF stickers work? Thanks for your help.

    Hardware and not software or OS would be the culprit of any EMF. Distance is your friend if you suffer. Speaker phone might help. As for filters or chokes, I can't speak for.

    EMF is hardware not software so rooting will not help in any way. plus if your s21 ultra is running the snapdragon chip then you can't root it. but the exynos and Hong Kong variant can be rooted......but again no reason to root if only because of EMF which rooting has no effect on it.

    As stated, it's a function of the phone's radio transceiver. Additional control over the phone's firmware would not include the ability to reduce transceiver power (maximum power is limited by FCC).

    I rarely have my phone to my ear for calls, using Bluetooth connection or speakerphone almost exclusively.

    That's what I do most of the time as well, and it's really for my comfort and convenience, rather than "EMF" or whatever.

    And just to be clear, EMF stickers work exactly as intended: they transfer money from your account to the vendor's. They do nothing else.
