HTC Titan review
The massive HTC Titan is well-named, but does this new Windows Phone 7.5 handset tower above the competition or is it already a dinosaur? Julian Prokaza gets to grips with the behemoth to find out.
The Titan's 16GB of internal storage is a little middling worse still is that only 12.6GB is available for use and there isn't a memory card slot for adding more.
HTC makes no claims about the Titan's battery life with MP3 playback, but our test result of just less than 40 hours with flight mode active is impressive enough. In the far more demanding WP Bench battery test, which hammers the processor and keeps the screen on, that Titan lasted for just over three and a half hours.
The Titan certainly has the semblance of a premium smartphone and pricing, both unlocked and with-contract, is along similar lines to the iPhone 4S. The specification, however, is a little lacking for a smartphone of this supposed calibre and it's a shame HTC didn't equip and design this behemoth just a little better.
The HTC Titan is well made, looks great and is generally pleasing in most aspects of its performance, but that super-size screen is largely wasted on Windows Phone 7 and apart from being a great way to show off photos, its only real benefit is that people with poor eyesight will find it easier to use.
