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
Conclusion: The HTC Titan and the Nokia Lumia 800 (not yet available in the US), are our two top picks for second generation high end Windows Phones. While the Lumia is extremely ergonomic and attractive in that Euro-chic way, the HTC speaks to those who want the biggest display along with a high quality metal casing. The Lumia 800 is the Alfa Romeo sports car to the HTC Titan's Escalade sensibility. It's big, it's posh and has all the creature comforts.
Pros: Huge and lovely display, excellent build quality.
Summary: The HTC Titan is HTC's latest range-topping Windows Phone 7 handset and certainly lives up to its name, being both titanic in size and sporting a titanic 4.7-inch display. Couple this with a 1.5GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera, and the latest version of Windows Phone 7 (7.5 Mango) and you've got yourself a recipe for one heck of a handset.
Pros: Huge screen, thin form factor, snappy processor
Cons: Screen resolution lower than we'd like, large overall size, no expandable storage
