    Default Fascinate is still king for the lowest SAR rating?

    The new Revolution by LG comes close but the fascinate and its derivatives (continuum for one) still seem to come out ahead.

    The Fascinate's SAR rating: Head: 0.57 W/kg; Body: 0.52 W/kg

    The Revolution's SAR rating: Head: 0.77 W/kg; Body: 0.95 W/kg

    Most any other smartphone: Head: 1+ W/kg; Body: 1+ W/kg


    Judging by past threads on SAR, very few people care or know what a SAR rating is. For everyone else, this is for you.

    Thanks for posting this, adjangs, I had never heard of SAR. This makes me feel good about my Fascinate all over again

    oh yeah, for the rest of us, save a click...

    "A possible cancer risk, but not proven. A comprehensive, international review of mobile phone users named it as an increased, but not definitive, cancer risk.

    The World Health Organisation's cancer agency is suggesting people go hands-free or text until more is known about the devices."

    Could it be the lowest, because the antenna and signal strength on the Fascinate is so bad?

    We might not get cancer and we might not get that phone call, text or webpage either.

    Fortunately for us, the signal strength meter on the Fascinate may not be entirely accurate. I have had crystal clear calls with only one bar showing on my meter. I have also seen it mentioned elsewhere someone tested out signal strength against a DroidX - Droid X had 4 bars, Fascinate 2, and Droid X was the one with the poor call quality.
    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

    The phone I most recently owned was a blackberry with double the SAR and equal reception.
