HTC Titan review: Huge is the new big - read the full textOne big scary smartphone, the HTC Titan. Visible from space. Oh well, a little exaggeration won't hurt. But as far as we can tell, they certainly wanted it big enough to see from Finland. Microsoft have a thing going on up north that they want to explore. But old-time partners HTC...

Since i have the watrrnay period i consulted HTC AUTHORISED SERVICE CENTRE - CELL INFOTECH, Egmore, Chennai and HTC SERVICE CENTRE - Basvangudi Branch, Banglore, but i got ill responses. MR Uday Kumar, 9884090092, Cell InfoTek Chennai, ill-treated us,i came all the way from banglore to chennai to get it serviced but there is no proper response and especially the guy guided us badly.My whole 26,000 rs is wasted now. Whos gonna answer this. This is the way you treat your customers.I have no complains over the phone, it is the smartest phone ever but service centres are too bad, please educate those service providers to behave properly with the customers.Please take necessary steps to bring back my phone and take immediate actions on those service centres.

The thing is, with a WP, you have only IE9 and with an androphone you have the choice between different web browser. Oh, and i have a galaxy s II and i'm using the stock web browser (cause of full flash plug in performance). Trust me, it's really fast. No flash on WP device, so you're stuck to HTML5 video web site. This is a big deal if you like watching TV shows and anime.

S-LCD screen is very good but not as good as the Amoled screen and Lumia doesn’t has Amoled screen and the positive side for Lumia screen is "Scratch resistant Gorilla glass" and in GSMarena review they mention in the Disadvantage concerning the screen of Lumia "Display is much dimmer than the N9's display" also don’t forgot "microSIM card slot"

excellent audio output, better and louder than iphone 4, but still not challanging old nokia n91. anyway the best mp3 player on a smartphone combined with superb huge display. personally i do not like windows limitations, but the sound deserve to sacrifice

Great review. One of the first honest ones I've read that deals with Wp7. I've had mine since the original launch and have loved it since. I don't understand the big push for dual and quad core type windows phones though. The only benefit that I hear you get from it is 1080 video recording. This is not a feature that I think people use that frequently. Maybe some video games would look and perform better on performs dual core system. If so, that's a legitimate reason but still not a show stopped as a phone is more geared towards casual gaming when you have downtime.
I'd love to heat why this is a big deal. Its needed on the android platform because the thing is slow. We don't have that problem.

I am not buying Titan for one main reason:
- in a such a big screen you still need to zoom-in to read text.

This look really silly....

Lumia 800 - 900 here i come...

Quad-core processing = quad-core power usage, for negligible performance gain. I'm all for powerful mobile computing, but such power is better in a slate than in a phone. IMHO phones should last for days without charging - this just isn't a priority for modern handsets and that's a bit of a shame.

Samsung is currently using Amoled instead of (S)LCD. Guess why they are doing that.

Yeah, because Amoled is superior than LCD.

I don't particularly understand all the hate for a larger size screen.

I find a 7" tablet fits into the pocket fine. Something like this is a breeze.
Maybe just folks down my way are taller or something?

A bit disappointed by the res though. I'm guessing WP7 doesn't support or cater for High (or HD resolutions) just yet? Is that in a coming update?

This huge screen is an disadvantage and make this phone exclusive for very specific kind of people. Do you really think that anyone will be confortably using a phone with tablet-like dimensions that is hard even to put on the pocket? This screen size is a joke.
You consider 100Mhz of more clock a considerable advantage? You got to be kiding.
The slimmer form factor is only a fashion thing, it won't make it any more confortable to hold. And the phone still heavier than Lumia 800.

Funny that you also ignored the Lumia 800 advantages like the much better camera, MUCH better screen (that is actually visible in direct sunlight ;) ), exclusive Nokia apps and much more comfortable dimensions thanks to it's screen size.

I must say that it was a nice try from HTC, releasing a phone with marginally more clock and gigantic screen size thinking that it's going to beat Nokia in their own game. They should try to improve more useful things like the poor screen, camera and audio-quality first.
