HTC Titan II (2012): First Review – Part 5

Saturday, April 7th, 2012 4:51:22 by

Integration with popular social media platforms on the Titan II is just as tight as ever. The phone supports Windows Live, Google Mail, Facebook, and Twitter accounts and also aggregates them into one convenient People Hub. Contacts and calendar details are seamlessly carried over from these services. I especially like the way the Pictures function makes it possible to save Facebook photos directly to the phone, something I still can’t figure out how to do in Android. Also slick are the Windows Phone operating system’s voice command capabilities. For instance, If the phone is connected to a headset, hitting the call button launches options to search and call contacts, or dictate texts to them just by speaking.

Entertainment plays a big role in Windows Phone too, with Microsoft’s Zune music service and Xbox Live built into the core of the OS. With Bing search I was even able to listen to music playing in the background, tag it than have the option to buy the track directly from the Zune store.

The camera is one of the features that make the Titan II a big shot in the market already saturated and dominated by iOS and Android devices. With 16-mega pixels the phones has the highest resolution camera in Apple, Google and Microsoft products. The only other phone to have higher resolution snapper is Nokia’s PureView 800 with a whopper 41-mega pixels.  However, since the phone runs on Symbian OS, it might not be included in the elite of smartphones like iOS-, Android- and WP-based handsets.
