HTC Titan Video Review

HTC knows about livin' large, after all they created the at the time mammoth and ground breaking HTC HD2 and HD7. Now that big phones are the trend, they've once again made one of the largest screen phones on the market, the 4.7" HTC Titan running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Despite that operating system's max resolution of 800 x 480, it's still a good platform for huge screens given the high quality graphics and typography used in the Metro UI and Windows Phone's multimedia focus. Movies look simply awesome at 4.7", for example.





The Titan joins the Samsung Focus S (a high end Windows Phone) and the Samsung Focus Flash on AT&T as their first wave of Mango smartphones. It has a 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU, an excellent 8 megapixel rear camera and a front 1.3 megapixel video chat camera. Like the Focus S and Focus Flash, it has HSPA+ 4G 14.4 and the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS that works with Bing Maps and AT&T Navigator.




The HTC Titan is available now for $199 with contract and $549 without, though it's apparently sold out at the moment on AT&T's website and in several of their stores. It has a unibody aluminum design, yet it's not unduly heavy. The phone has 16 gigs of internal storage and a 1600 mAh battery with surprisingly good battery life.


Here's our HTC Titan video review. Our full written review will follow in the coming days.
