Review: HP Veer 4G
Despite the sheer lack of any useful features, the Veer's 5-megapixel camera does a pretty good job at capturing images. Focus was almost always crisp and sharp. The camera also managed to get white balance, color, and exposure right most of the time. There was a near-complete lack of grain and/or digital artifacts, which makes for clear images.
Of course, performance in well-lit environments is far superior to performance in low-light environments. Since the Veer doesn't have a flash, there's not much you can do but take the picture and hope for the best. Low-light shots have more grain, and softer focus, but color and white balance are correct.

The Veer shoots video in 640 x 480 resolution. There are no options to step the resolution down. Truthfully, the quality is less than what I'd expect from a 2-megapixel feature phone. Focus? Pshaw, who needs that. Video shot with the Veer is full of digital artifacts, and everything looks soft and fuzzy. It managed exposure well enough, but the absolute lack of detail and clarity makes the Veer's camcorder useful for only the most basic video needs.
