HTC Titan: The new Windows Phone sensation

Sunday, October 30th, 2011 3:35:33 by

High Tech Computer Corporation (HTC) released its newest Windows Phone-based smartphone, the HTC Titan on October 15th.

The new handset is the high-end denomination of the new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. HTC Radar is the low-end, cheaper smartphone that houses the same Mango version but with lower specifications.

Titan is powered by a 1.5 GHz Single Core processor with 512 MB of RAM. Although these specifications are little low-tech for most of the smartphones in the market, the lighter-Windows Phone runs smoothly on it.

The Titan is 131.5mm x 70.7mm in size and 9.9 mm in breadth and is a little heavier than its competitors with 160 grams but the 4.7-inch Super LCD screen justifies that all. The screen has a 480×800 resolution that looks sharp for bright and colourful Windows
graphics. The phone is capable of playing 5.1 Surround Sound audio and 720p HD video.

Microsoft has pulled off a better version of their Windows Phone operating system. With new and revamped applications, the OS is a huge improvement to its predecessors. Applications run smoother on the Titan without any hindrance and the Internet Explorer
9 is quick to gestures like scrolling and magnification.

On the back side is an 8 mega-pixel camera that is capable of recording 720p full HD video. A dual-LED flash light is nested adjacent to the lens. The front-facing camera can record VGA-mode video for chatting.

On the right side, Titan has volume up/down buttons. The volume down button also serves as a silent-mode activator when pressed and held. Beneath the volume controls is a designated button for the camera. There are no ports, whatsoever at the bottom but
there is a micro-USB port at the left side for PC/Mac connectivity and power charging. On the top, there is a 3.5mm headphones jack and a power ON/OFF button.

The phone is LTE based and is 3G enabled however; it also comes with standard features like GPRS and EDGE.

Bluetooth 2.1 and WiFi (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n), Gyro sensor, G sensor and proximity sensor come as standard issues. The phone comes with both GSM and WCDMA modules, therefore can be used anywhere in the world.

The battery timing has 15 days of stand-by on GSM phones and 18 days on the WCDMA phones.
