    I'm very concerned about the Lumia 925's SAR rating of 1.42 W/kg (head). I found this info here:

    Not really. The SAR rating is the measurement of the phone's highest output recorded during testing, not the value that it constantly outputs.

    It all depends, as said and linked above, its the highest value measured. So you should, perhaps, worry more if you are in a poor signal area or hold the phone in such a way that the signal is impaired, as this is when the phone has to ramp up the power to the antenna.

    What's SAR?

    What's SAR?
    It's a measure of energy waves pumped out by the device and absorbed by the cells of your body. The higher the level the worse it is. The US and Europe have maximum limits, and for a device to be street legal it must be below these limits. The Lumia 925 complies with these limits. However, I'm one of those people who thinks lower is better without trading off too much phone reception. Typical phones are in the 1.10's or lower from my casual observations.

    I'm going to trust that the FCC (the people who test the phones) know what they're talking about and not worry about it.

    I'm not too concerned with the rating but what you just said is face palm worthy. :)

    Thank you for pointing that out. I had almost forgot about the SAR rating and I appreciate the reminder. I've checked the SAR for my HTC HD 7 and it is 1.15 W/kg (head) vs 1.30 W/kg (head) for the Lumia 810 I used to have.

    Honestly I personally wouldn't worry about it as there is so much more in the environment - radio and microwaves, etc.
