When the pictures are taken from outdoor it does not provide clarity and besides this there is no secondary camera, so no video conferencing, just stick with voice calls. The device’s video recording is worst than its picture taking quality.

HP Veer 4G ain’t providing superb features, but webOS 2.1 is worth considering an enhancement but we can’t only rely on OS as other features also matters alot. It is very difficult to read text and other things through display because of its having supercompact design.
