To make matters more complicated, however, we have a few other tests for the BlackBerry Passport with slight variance in the SARratings. Take a look at the values per model right below:

  • THE GOOD The BlackBerry Passport offers powerful hardware and a clever keyboard that makes for a great reading and editing experience.
  • THE BAD That squat, square shape makes it awkward to use. Amazon’s app store lacks some key apps found on Google Play.
  • THE BOTTOM LINE The BlackBerry Passport’s bullish focus on productivity spawns a fantastic keyboard, but its blocky shape makes one-handed use difficult.

Some Specs

The 4.5-inch BlackBerry Passport is about the same size and shape as a US passport. That squat, distinctive square shape will certainly grab everyone’s attention while you’re tapping out missives or holding it up against your face. And at 6.9 ounces (just under half a pound or 196 grams) the phone is light, but still feels solid. But it’s also 3.5 inches (89mm) wide, which makes it wider than phablets like the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus — both of which offer larger displays.

Keep in mind that these are completely different phones targeting fundamentally different audiences: the average consumer versus that nebulous “professional” BlackBerry has courted for so long. And if you fall into the latter camp of hard-core BlackBerry devotees or can’t do without a physical keyboard, this is the phone for you.

SAR, a measurement that stands for Specific Absorption Rate, shows the radiation level of a smartphone.

Of course, you’re here because you’re informed about the dangers of cell phones and the potential cancer causing levels of radiation. Brain and heart tumors and other cell phone causing cancers can be prevented by using an RF Safe flip Cover Case in conjunction with an RF Safe AirTube Headset which can be further protected by an RF Safe Ferrite Bead. The good news is that you can protect yourself from cancer causing radiation emitted by cell phones with these and other devices.
