Summary: The HTC Titan is proof that size isn't everything. While the phone's screen is impressive and we're generally pleased with what Microsoft has done with Windows Phone 7.5, it just doesn't feel like the dramatic leap forward the platform badly needs right now.
Cons: No microSD card slot; screen resolution could be better; No Flash support in browser.
Conclusion: The Titan is yet another solid-looking and respectable device from HTC. As ever, design and build quality are at the forefront of things here but it’s not all about exteriors; this is a phone that shows off Windows Phone 7 and Mango effortlessly. You get a healthy amount of internal storage and access to SkyDrive for all of your storage needs, a decent camera and a dependable battery.
Pros: Large 4.7-inch screen with great contrast, Impressive 8-megapixel camera, Solid, dependable battery, Understated stylish design
Cons: Low screen resolution, Dearth of apps compared to iTunes App Store, Size maybe too big for some, No microSD slot
Summary: The HTC Titan is exactly the sort of Windows Phone Microsoft wants to see from its hardware partners. It’s a big and beautiful slab of technology that invites great debate while still conforming to the chassis specs coming out of Redmond. The main question stirred up by the arrival of the 4.7-inch Titan is, inevitably, how big is too big?
Pros: Superb screen and robust build, Snappy performance, WP7.5 gets all the basics right
Cons: Low pixel density, Size makes for awkward handling, Marketplace lacks the app diversity of iOS and Android
Summary: Once we got used to the HTC Titan's size, we enjoyed using this Windows Phone on a daily basis. The large screen is bright (albeit with relatively low resolution), and we appreciated the snappy performance. We're just not sure how many people want to carry a device this big.
Pros: Big and bright display with wide viewing angles, Sturdy and elegant design, Smooth performance, Good battery life, Useful camera settings
Cons: Design too large for some, Sluggish "4G" speeds, Takes fuzzy photos in low light, Poor video call quality with Tango
