Worst phones: HP Veer
Oh, what a missed opportunity for HP. It could have reinvigorated (before eventually killing) WebOS by bringing the superior Pre 3 to a U.S carrier, but it opted for the hopeless Veer instead. Yeah, it was cute, but the tiny screen made even the simplest tasks frustrating. The proprietary headphone jack and adapter made no sense and AT&T's data speeds were slow. It was a disappointment all around.
Editors' rating: 2.5 stars out of 5
The bottom line: The HP Veer 4G looks cute and packs in a good amount of features for the price and size, but ultimately the smartphone's compact design hinders usability and limits its appeal.
