Well/ the SAR rating doesn't really relate to the db transmit power of the phone, SAR is how much energy you absorb by using the device, which depends on the antenna placement, construction of the device, etc, i have seen weak phones with high (bad) sar ratings, just because they put the antenna by your ear & didn't sheield it, but the phone still had weak reception, if you click on the FCC id from the phonescoop page for any phone, look for the Detail' report beside the most important frequency for your carrier, which would be 800mhz for verizon, since that is where most of the voice calls are, then select SAR report from the list of documents, and sift through the report for Conducted power, i usually check channel 384, as that is the first choice formost verizon phones, and you want to make sure you're comparing apples to apples, sorry for the runon sentance, opear mobile won't let me type a period and continue typing, one of the many reasons i wanted an iphone...
