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 y... Full review
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, incl... Full review
Delivers powerful camera, fast LTE coverage at high price
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 qu... Full review
HTC does an excellent job of making even their plastic phones feel high-end
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. 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 Lum... Full review
The HTC Titan II is a good but not great Windows Phone, as its high-end camera doesn't perform up to expectations
This sequel offers some marginal improvements, but it is by no means groundbreaking
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 i... Full review
With its excellent camera, the HTC Titan 2 is the perfect phone for mobile shutterbugs
Big and beautiful, 16-megapixel camera, blazing fast LTE
If it was the same price as the Lumia 900, then the Titan II would be much more competitive
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
