The smallest up to date smart phone HP has recently just opened to the market that is the HP Veer 4G. This phone packs a few punches trough speed and functions plus mobility. A positively mind-blowing miniature size phone but still is able to match up with previous HP Palm Pre 2.
Connection to the internet is at HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps only so it’s not as fast as the 4G network would be. This phone supports Flash 10.1 so you can watch videos online. The screen is 2.6 inch so viewing blog or websites can be quite difficult but thankfully there is still pinch to zoom function available so you would find yourself pinch zooming quite often while browsing with this phone.
The interesting part about this phones messaging is that it does not only store SMS or MMS, it also pull messages from Gmail or Yahoo. Messages appeared like a conversation. People with big fingers would have a hard time typing using the QWERTY keyboard but other than that the keyboard is still able to send out messages quite smoothly.
Camera is 5 Mp with fixed focus but has no secondary camera and also flash so this can be a disappointment. Picture quality is average because some of it would appear to be washed out or the color is not balance at all. Video recording is available also but user would experience a not so clear visual or pixelated video. Overall the camera function of this phone is below average.
Video playback is not a problem at all for this small phone because of the fast processor speed. Users would enjoy smooth video in MP4 format. On the other hand, the music interface is just like any webOS smartphones. This phone plays music but the sound quality is not so good. During maximum volume, the speaker would be blurred and cracking sounds could be heard.
This phone has also some interesting features like Bluetooth V2.1, A-GPS, and document viewer. There is also a dedicated mic with noise cancellation and voices can be heard clearly. Battery life is average. Talk time is up to 6 hours and 300 hours for standby time after a full charge.
Pros and Cons
Cramped up keyboard, weak battery life and slow network can be somewhat frustrating for a user who would like to use their phones to browse internet.
