    I dropped my S3 last week. Was putting it in my pocket and...missed. It fell and landed directly on its long side. Barely even a scratch on it. It was in a parking lot. I was shocked it had no real damage. Didn't pop open either. I didn't have a case on it as I like having a naked phone. Lets just say I put its case on it.

    Can anyone succinctly explain what it means that the Verizon variant has "the lowest SAR (specific absorption rate) measurements" while the AT&T version has the highest? Is it better to have a low SAR or a high SAR?

    Low SAR means less radiation on your brain.

    Ahh; thank you! I wonder if there is any relation between the SAR of an antenna and it's ability to pull in a signal and its broadcast strength. I care about that while I could not care less about the SAR.
