Reviews summary

7.4/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 23 reviews

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.

Need to Know: HTC Titan II

1. Built-in 16-megapixel main camera. (The Good)

2. Default operating system is Windows Phone 7 Mango. (The Good)

3. Cannot be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 Apollo. (The Bad)

4. Way too bulky for its own good. (The Bad)

TechCrunch

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

from TechCrunch

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

from Brighthand

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

from Complex

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

TechCrunch

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. 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... Full review

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

from Pocket-lint

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

from PC Magazine
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... Full review

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

from GSMArena

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

from PCWorld
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 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...

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

from TechnoBuffalo
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... Full review

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

from Pocketnow
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 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...
