Conclusion: Compared to the rest on test, the Titan is a big screen with an ever-improving OS underneath... but we can’t help but think the Sensation XL (the same phone running Android) is a better bet. However, if you’re after something different from an Android or iPhone device, and want to take the plunge with Microsoft (plus loving the thought of big screen media on the go) then the HTC Titan is certainly not without its charms.
Pros: Enhanced contrast, Surround sound effects, Camera effects
Cons: No Flash vid support, No contextual menu, Sharp screen design
Conclusion: The Titan is yet another solid-looking and respectable device from HTC. As ever, design and build quality are at the forefront of things here but it’s not all about exteriors; this is a phone that shows off Windows Phone 7 and Mango effortlessly. You get a healthy amount of internal storage and access to SkyDrive for all of your storage needs, a decent camera and a dependable battery.
Pros: Large 4.7-inch screen with great contrast, Impressive 8-megapixel camera, Solid, dependable battery, Understated stylish design
Cons: Low screen resolution, Dearth of apps compared to iTunes App Store, Size maybe too big for some, No microSD slot
Excerpt: The HTC Titan runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango and includes a 4.7 inch screen and a camera optimised for low light performance. Is this the best Windows Phone yet? Read our full review to find out.
Summary: Additional comments: No expandable external storage slot. Top end speed, even for single-core processor; many dual-core list slower speeds—Well done. Noise cancellation feature with dedicated microphone. Youtube client, popular social network short-cuts. Document viewer and editor both available on-board. MP3 / WAV / WMA / eAAC+ player / MP4 / WMV / H.264 / H.263 player. Stereo FM radio with RDS. GPS with Bing maps – no surprise: It’s a Windows phone.
Excerpt: The Titan 4G is a towering grey giant, defined by a 4.7 inch screen that has a 480x800 resolution. At 147 grams it's a heavy smartphone, and that's without the traditional slide-out QWERTY keyboard found on its forefathers. In terms of design, the Titan 4G lacks inspiration. It's a behemoth drenched in banal grey, modelling no swooning curves or premium materials. Instead, HTC hope much of the Titan's allure will come from its expansive screen.
Pros: Captures good still pics, even in dim lighting;
Cons: There's a lot of features lacking; It is ugly;
Summary: The HTC Titan has a huge 4.7-inch display packed into a battleship-strong metal chassis, the Titan is running on Windows Phone 7. The Titan features tight integration with a variety of social networks, such as Windows Live, Google Mail, Facebook, and Twitter. Simply associate those networks with the phone and you’ll get status updates from your network in the People Hub.
Pros: Superb screen and robust build, Snappy performance, WP7.5 gets all the basics right
Cons: Low pixel density, Size makes for awkward handling, Marketplace lacks the app diversity of iOS and Android
Summary: The HTC Titan is, in every sense, a high-end utilitarian smartphone intended for those who're not in need of a flashy looking phone with massive amount of storage that has all sorts of unwanted apps. As I've said earlier, the hardware component of this handset isn't as outstanding as it was when it was first announced. Since then, there were numerous handsets that were released in the market that have the same, if not better, specs as the Titan.
Excerpt: Everything you’d expect from a superphone – huge display; speedy browser, great communication facilities; A-GPS and an eight-megapixel snapper with dual-LED flash Solid build quality from this slim phone, with an aluminium unibody, and responsive 4.7 inch WVGA touch-display.
