HTC Titan II (2012): First Review – Part 2

Saturday, April 7th, 2012 4:52:11 by

At 5.1 inches tall by 2.8 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick, this handset is just as much of a behemoth. Sculpted in the flat, rectangular slab shape that’s become so common in today’s smartphones, the Titan II is the spitting image of many of HTC’s Android handsets. Tipping the scales at a hefty 6 ounces, the Titan II will weigh you down. But even so, the phone’s soft-touch metallic gray finish, rounded curves, and tightly beveled edges give it a premium feel. I had no trouble wrapping my paws around it, but the Titan II’s large size will pose a challenge for smaller hands.

With a WVGA (800×480-pixel) resolution, the Super LCD touch screen has the same resolution as the first Titan (also a 4.7-inch Super LCD) and the new Nokia Lumia 900 (4.3-inch, WVGA). The Nokia Lumia 900, on the other hand, boasts an AMOLED screen with more vibrant colours and attractive contrast ratio. The ClearBlack technology the Finnish company has introduced to its smartphones has made the blacks look real black. Other colours however, are overdone and sometimes give a very artificial-ly feel to the screen.

In the stark comparison, the Titan II’s Super LCD screen gives a more real life-like look to the users and colours are livelier than the Lumia 900.

The bottom edge of the Titan II is slightly curved, forming a gentle chin. Here, right below the Titan II’s screen, are icons for the three standard Windows Phone buttons for Back, Start, and Search. Like the Lumia 900’s, the Titan II’s keys are capacitive and backlit, and provide a soft vibration when you press them. Placed above the display are the handset’s 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and thin earpiece, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and a small power button. The only other controls are a thin volume bar and dedicated camera key on the device’s right side.
