First, RF output (transmit) is only one half of the RF signal performance equation, with reception being the other half. Both are important.

Secondly, if higher power automatically meant better performance, all phones would be designed to operate at the maximum legal limit. That's not the case.

Engineering a phone for optimal signal (RF) performance is extremely complex. It's not just output power or reception gain. Dozens (if not hundreds) of factors affect the signal performance of a particular phone, on a particular network, in a particular location, in a particular situation.
