Editors Didn't Like

  • Small screen and unusual default font make reading more than short missives a chore, WebOS platform doesn't have the wide selection of apps that other platforms do, Just Type menu is not as flexible as it could be, Autocorrect is overly aggressive
  • Too small for comfort, lack of apps, lousy camera, poor email experience, no 3.5mm jack, nonstandard charging port
  • Tiny screen. Physical keyboard may be too small for some. Few apps. Not actually 4G. Dismal magnetic headphone jack. Some Bluetooth bugs
  • Petite frame isn't for everyone, Subpar camera, Poor selection of apps
  • If the box didn’t say 4G on it, I never would have guessed. Palm’s app store has a woefully dismal selection — only the biggest names are there. The battery is nonremovable
  • The Veer 4G's tiny screen makes even the simplest tasks difficult. The smartphone uses a proprietary connector and requires a separate adapter if you want to use headphones. AT&T's "4G" data speeds are slow
  • Display is quite small, Keyboard is hard to use
