SAR - Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field.
According to norms, threshold value for head is : 1.6 W/Kg (Watts/Kg) US/India
In simpler term, "Less the SAR value, less radiation, and more you safe".
Here is little comparison of some mobile phone's SAR value

Samsung Galaxy S5: head SAR : 0.85 W/Kg, Body SAR : 1.55 W/Kg
LG Nexus 5: 0.92 W/kg (head) 1.23 W/kg (body)
Iphone 5S : head 1.25 ear
Moto E: 0.97 W/kg (head) , 1.50 W/kg (body)

Samsung Galaxy SII : Head 0.475 W/Kg 😁
Samsung Galaxy Note II : Head 0.225 W/Kg👍
Finally,Nokia 1100: 0.78 W/kg.

What's your mobile phone's SAR value?
@Kaustubh Katdare • 07 Jun, 2014 Note II. I'm on the safer side 😀 [Head SAR : 0.225 W/Kg]
@Sanyam Khurana • 07 Jun, 2014 It's not showing results for my device, it says phone model does not exist 😛

Using Samsung GT-S5302

(Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos/ Samsung Galaxy Y Duos Lite)
@Kaustubh Katdare • 07 Jun, 2014 @Sanyam Khurana - It's 0.86 W/kg (head) [Source: GSM Arena]
