cheap phones are sold everywhere around the world, so enjoy! Just because a phone is expensive does not mean its 100% good

Thanks macd. However, the fact that these phones are being sold worldwide does not provide me with the assurance that I need. Yes expensive does not equal safety but here we are talking about the relative safety of a genuine branded phone eg Nokia in comparison to a cheaper imitation one. Big brands are known to at least conform to standard radiation thresholds.

Considering the volumes that these phone's are brought in, majority through un-official channels i seriously doubt the S.A.Z has a dedicated testing department nor the manpower for such huge feat.

there are always gona be gray suppliers and having Nokia officially dedicating itself to mass-production of very cheap phone for poor people, yu can imagine how much manpower will be required to test them all

Thanks for the responses guys. However I am concerned that you seem be talking about the testing as if it has to be done on each and every unit that enters the country. I would have thought there would be periodic sampling of models on the market and that information is made available to the consumers or something like that?
