The Titan II offers a decent amount of screen real-estate that’s easy to read and interact with.
The HTC Titan II is powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone software and was released primarily in the US. Its default operating system is Windows Phone version 7.5 (Mango), which runs well on a 1.5GHz Qualdcomm Snapdragon CPU even though it is somewhat limited by 512MB of RAM.
The Titan II features a 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 16GB of onboard storage, 4G LTE plus Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless capabilities, microUSB connectivity and a 16-megapixel main camera. 16MB you say? Yes, that bit about its main camera is not a typo. It really does come with a 16 megapixel camera sensor while still managing to weigh less than 150 grams. Unfortunately, the camera doesn’t really deliver in terms of picture quality.
Although the build quality is typical of an HTC handset—which is a good thing—the profile makes it come off as just a bit too bulky. This is one of the major complaints most reviewers have had about the phone. Somehow, it is just too thick to be used comfortably.
Compared to the first-generation Titan from HTC, this model is definitely improved. It can hold its own when pitted against most other models on the market today but seems to come with a few too many flaws to make it a perfect recommendation.
