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.

Reviews (7/10 Avg. rating)

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

from TechCrunch (over 2 years ago)

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... More

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

from Brighthand (over 2 years ago)

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... More

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

from TechCrunch (over 2 years ago)

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,... More

Delivers powerful camera, fast LTE coverage at high price

from Complex (over 2 years ago)

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... More

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

from Pocket-lint (over 2 years ago)

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... More

This sequel offers some marginal improvements, but it is by no means groundbreaking

from GSMArena (over 2 years ago)

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... More

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

from PC Magazine (over 2 years ago)

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... More

With its excellent camera, the HTC Titan 2 is the perfect phone for mobile shutterbugs

from PCWorld (over 2 years ago)

The HTC Titan 2 is the largest phone I've reviewed, and it definitely has its charms. 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... More

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

from Pocketnow (over 2 years ago)

If you're a huge fan of HTC, large 4.7 inch screens with lower pixel densities, LTE, the Windows Phone operating system, and want bragging rights with a 16 megapixel camera, then the Titan II might be worth the extra money. If it was the same price as the Lumia 900, then the Titan II would be much more... More

Big and beautiful, 16-megapixel camera, blazing fast LTE

from TechnoBuffalo (over 2 years ago)

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... More
