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.

Camera is excellent and Windows Phone is smooth as butter but pretty thick and pixel density is awful

I love the idea of a partnership between HTC and Microsoft. In fact, the first-gen Titan is a cool handset, as is the little Trophy. But it seems that with the Titan II, neither HTC nor Microsoft were thinking of the entire experience. The hardware is nice, and I’m still a lover of Windows Phone.

But the screen resolution vs. size thing really bothers me, and I truly wish that HTC’s Sense camera app was interacting with the 16-megapixel hardware, especially since that camera is one of the phone’s big selling features. Those things are somewhat excusable, but when you lop on a fat body and poor battery life (likely the most crucial feature in any phone), it’s nearly impossible for me to recommend this device.

I hope to see more from HTC and Microsoft in the future — I think it’s a match made in heaven. I just think that in this case specifically, a win-win was actually a big lose.

It has a disappointing display and it’s too big and bulky

With all the attention and recent marketing that the Nokia Lumia 900 has been receiving lately, it’s easy for people to overlook the HTC Titan II, or perhaps not even hear about it at all. But while I personally did not find it to be quite on the same remarkably high level as the Lumia 900, I still thought that the Titan II was a great Windows Phone offering from HTC. It has a disappointing display and it’s too big and bulky for my tastes, but at least the latter issue was somewhat mitigated by its contoured design. Aside from that, it’s mostly pros with the Titan II, including an outstanding camera, a powerful processor, and 4G connectivity. It will run you a bit more than the Lumia 900, but if you’re not fond of Nokia’s unorthodox design choices or you’re looking for a better-quality camera, then the Titan II might just be what you’re looking for.

The Titan II gets props for welcoming a few firsts to the mobile game, by that we mean its monstrous 16MP camera and LTE coverage for the Windows Phone platform. Images look great and the different shooting modes are sweet additions to the shooter. Pictures are slightly better on the Titan II, but we give the overall camera experience to the One X for its amazing technological advancements. A true shutterbug will appreciate the phone nonetheless.

The LTE service surprised us the most, dishing out fast data speeds that compliment Microsoft’s smooth and speedy interface. Call quality is also stellar. However, poor video recording and second-gen specs could shift subscribers towards a more inexpensive option that offers identical performance (Lumia 900). But if multimedia and photography is your forte, the Titan II fits the frame.

HTC does an excellent job of making even their plastic phones feel high-end

from TechCrunch ( )

If it’s HTC that tickles your fancy, it all comes down to the OS. Do you prefer Sense 4 on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or would you prefer to play with Microsoft.

If it’s HTC that tickles your fancy, it all comes down to the OS. Do you prefer Sense 4 on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or would you prefer to play with Microsoft. The One X specs slap down the Titan II like Daniel LaRusso at the beginning of The Karate Kid, but as I mentioned earlier, specs matter less and less these days. Where you’ll really win with the One X is the 4.7-inch 720p display. If you can tote it around comfortably, it really doesn’t get much better than that.

Big screen, fast processor, solid design, 16-megapixel camera

Whether you want a device with such a big screen will be a decision only you can make.

Whether you want a device with such a big screen will be a decision only you can make. The HTC Titan II certainly delivers one of those and if you think the Nokia Lumia 900 is big, this will seem even bigger. While the Titan II isn't as cool looking, nor does it come with as many "free" apps bolted on as the Nokia devices, we do like the Titan II if you've got the money to spare over the heavily discounted Nokia Lumia 900. The performance is great, the design, while a little "old", is still strong and solid, and the camera really does perform well. Should you buy it instead of the Nokia Lumia 900? Sadly for HTC it's still playing second fiddle here to Nokia, and that's a shame. HTC Watch, while great, can easily be replaced with other streaming services. While the in-camera features aren't enough to really make it that much different to the Lumia 900, especially given the more expensive price tag. If you want a big-screened Windows Phone 7 device, we suspect that while the HTC Titan II offers what you'll want, you'll end up plumping for the Lumia 900.

The HTC Titan II is a good but not great Windows Phone, as its high-end camera doesn't perform up to expectations

The HTC Titan II  tries, but doesn't quite succeed, to take the mantle of best Windows Phone away from the just-released Nokia Lumia 900.

The HTC Titan II  tries, but doesn't quite succeed, to take the mantle of best Windows Phone away from the just-released Nokia Lumia 900. On paper, this is one impressive cell phone, with an incredible 16-megapixel camera, 4G LTE, and a massive screen. Unfortunately, the camera doesn't live up to expectations, and Windows Phone still has a few serious drawbacks when compared with Android and iOS. But Windows Phone is a fun, easy-to-use OS, and the Titan II  is still a good phone to experience it with.

The HTC Titan II offers arguably the best hardware, found in a Windows Phone smartphone. Its 16MP camera unit and LTE network connectivity might even sway a few users away from devices, running on competing platforms. After all, Microsoft has been working hard to expand the Windows Phone ecosystem, with the Marketplace expanding on an hourly basis. Furthermore, like a typical HTC, the Titan II is superbly well put together. Even the most nitpicking users will have a hard time finding anything to frown at. The handset's measures are also a pleasant surprise. The phone is quite light, given its massive physical proportions. Of course, not everything about the smartphone is perfect. Its design is ageing quickly, now that the One Series has been released by HTC. The same goes for the smartphone's hardware. Given the recent controversy, surrounding the future updates to Windows Phone Apollo, locking yourself up with a two-year contract to have the Titan II (or any other current Windows Phone device for that matter) might be something to think over quite carefully.

Yes, the screen is fuzzy at times, and the video recording may not be the best, but the Titan 2's LTE connectivity and excellent picture-taking capabilities more than make up for those faults. If you think the phone is too big (and some people may feel that way), I recommend looking at the Nokia Lumia 900 instead; its camera may not be as good, but it will still give you a nice, big helping of Windows Phone goodness.

Overall, the follow up is still big and beautiful, made even more so but its humungo 16-megapixel camera and blazing fast LTE. It’s wonderfully designed — like its predecessor — without feeling overly big, and performed well despite the limitations of Windows Phone. But at $200, AT&T customers might have a tough time justifying the Titan II’s price when a handset like the Lumia 900 exists for so cheap.

If it was the same price as the Lumia 900, then the Titan II would be much more competitive

If it was the same price as the Lumia 900, then the Titan II would be much more competitive. Still the Titan II is a great Windows Phone, but it's disappointing that HTC will probably not put as much marketing muscle behind it compared to what Nokia is doing with their Lumia 900.
