  • Summary: The HP Veer is a nice phone, but whether you'll like it or not depends almost entirely on what you're looking for in a handset. If you want a tiny, easy to use smartphone with a proper keypad, it's worth a look. If you want something with a bigger screen for internet use, however, or apps are high up your list, then the Veer isn't the handset for you.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The tiny HP Veer for AT&T can't revive the fortunes of HP's webOS smartphone line.

HP Veer 4G Review

Digitaltrends
19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: It’s great to see that the phone market is finally beginning to welcome odd-looking phones again. HP is brave to try something new, and we applaud the company’s courage, but the Veer is not a phone for everybody. Its tiny screen and keyboard will make it difficult to operate for those with large hands.
  • Pros: Small size is welcomed in a market of huge phones, Refreshing webOS interface, QWERTY keyboard is quite usable, Screen is more responsive than any Android device
  • Cons: Screen is too small for many users, Proprietary charge port, Audio jack requires a dongle, Poor camera with no autofocus, No microSD storage slot, Screen whittles down webOS app selection, Not a true 4G device

Review of HP's tiny Veer 4G webOS smartphone for AT&T

MobileBurn
18 May 2011
  • Summary: The HP Veer 4G is an interesting device, to say the least. It represents HP's first official effort with a webOS smartphone since the personal computer manufacturer acquired smartphone pioneer Palm just over a year ago. Design-wise, the Veer bucks the trend in smartphones that says bigger is better, as it is one of the smallest smartphones we have ever laid hands on.
  • Pros: Snappy performance, nice OS, solid battery life
  • Cons: Too small for comfort, lack of apps, lousy camera, poor email experience, no 3.5mm jack, non-standard charging port

  • Excerpt: When you first grip the thing in your hand and try out the keyboard, you think, “Oh man, this is never going to work.” But after a few initial typos, it’s actually not that bad at all.

HP Veer 4G (AT&T)

LAPTOP Magazine
9 May 2011
  • Summary: The HP Veer 4G doesn't really offer anything that would tempt an iPhone or Android phone owner to buy this device. It's more like a messaging phone that can do a lot more. But even viewed in that light, the Veer 4G doesn't hit the mark. While the design is remarkably small and pocket-friendly, the screen is tough to read in portrait mode, and you have to attach an awkward accessory just to plug in headphones.
  • Pros: Very small and light, Well-designed keyboard, Time-saving Just Type feature, Loud speaker
  • Cons: Headphone jack requires accessory, Screen too small, Slow "4G" speeds, Poor video camera
