The HTC Titan certainly lives up to its name, with the mighty phone packing a whopping 4.7-inch Super LCD screen – yet it oddly doesn’t feel too big in the hand, and decent contrast ratios make it a winner when it comes to movies as well.
I especially like the clarity on offer, with the fact it’s only got WVGA resolution (800 x 480) not mattering and seeming to offer equal sharpness to its more hi-res family.
Windows Phones aren’t noted as packing the fastest snappers on the market, but they are among the most usable, as Microsoft insists on a specific camera key on each handset. The whopping screen of the Titan makes it easy to compose your pics, although the
larger size can mean some shaky snaps.
We’re not overly taken with the 720p footage we nabbed with the Titan, but if you don’t want to chuck your home videos onto a large TV, the smoothness is pretty impressive on a phone or tablet screen.
The battery life is more than acceptable as well, with the power meter only dropping to 50% around 8PM each night, which is more than good enough in our eyes.
That’s partly to do with a slightly less than impressive internet browser meaning I spent less time surfing on the go.
However, if you’re after something different from an Android or iPhone device, and want to take the plunge with Microsoftthen the HTC Titan is certainly not without its charms.
