This phone was HTC's biggest collaboration with Microsoft to create a Windows phone and it paid off in great figures. Armed with the looks and the respected Windows OS, The Titan was meant to be sold like hot cakes.In this review I'll be critically analyzing the HTC Titan on the basis of design, build quality, functionality and pricing after which I will give a final verdict.
Design- The HTC Titan truly lives up to its name, it is a titan when it comes to size. Boasting a 4.7 inch S-LCD capacitive touch screen, the colours on the phone are superb and coupled with the vibrant Windows Phone OS, the Titan provides a lot of eye candy. You have the standard Windows Phone soft keys(Home, Back and Search) which are well separated from each other, so we had no problem concerning pressing the wrong keys. At the back is a nice 8 megapixel camera with dual flash and the loudspeaker.
Build Quality- HTC has gone all out premium, regarding the build quality of the Titan. The body is all metal(except the screen of course, that is glass), and this adds quite some weight to the phone, but the Titan feels firm and nice to hold and it will definitely survive falls with the only probability of the metal getting some scratches(and the glass too, if it falls face down).
Functionality- The HTC Titan has a lot of power under hood; it sports a 1.5 GHz Scorpion Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is amazingly fast for it can support the live movement of the Windows Phone OS(continuously moving tiles) without causing any lag in the other sub- systems of the phone. The Titan runs on the Windows 7.5 Mango OS which is highly customizable and user friendly. The UI is very catchy and we didn't experience a problem which we mostly do on most Windows Phones; thanks to the big screen, the black band on the right side of the Home screen(the one with the arrow leading to the app list) doesn't seem to eat up a lot of space, which is good. The Web browsing experience is nice on the Titan, but unfortunately it doesn't support Flash content. The 8 megapixel camera takes good pictures and has many custom setting to make pictures nice to view and share.
Pricing- All good things come for a price; nothing changes with the Titan for the biggest thing it boasts is its price tag. Priced at $515(USD), nothing more can be said.
The Verdict- Overall the HTC Titan does a good job as a smartphone; it has the looks, a big screen, a vibrant OS and a good camera. With the only let down of its inability to support Flash content, the HTC Titan is a good buy and will not disappoint you. Unhappy with the Titan's price ? Then try out the Nokia Lumia 800 which is priced at $440(USD), it has a smaller screen and doesn't support Flash, but it works if you don't want to burn that big a hole in your wallet.
