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...

Imagine the joy on your face when you pull this little guy out of your pocket. Disgustingly big for a phone. Not into it at all.

I really do see myself sometime soon jumping ship to go with a WP7 device. The Titian almost makes me want to do that now. It's a great looking device even though it's so massive compared to my lil Desire-Z. I like it though, the OS looks really good on a bigger screen. It's only limitations are the OS limits mainly in Screen resolution. Once the OS is able to support hi-res screens, we're more then likely going to see a lot of very nice devices soon.

Metal makes the phone heavier. titan beats nokia lumia because of ....
1. front facing camera.
2. bigger screen (document editing, web browsing)
3. faster 1.5ghz core
4. slimmer at 9.9mm
5. lighter than the desire hd, optimus 3d despite it's f***ing big screen.

Whatever it is the WP7 wave seems to be getting bigger. Android better start looking over its shoulder, someone is coming to lunch, and Android sandwiches are on the menu.

No matter if Android has Quad, stills non-optimized wth a lots of lags and problems around.....

"The Titan certainly keeps the Nokia Lumia 800 at a safe distance. "
I don't really understand.

Is it for the screen ? Okay it's far bigger but that is a matter of taste...and even if the S-LCD of the Titan seems really good, the Amoled CBD is at least at the same level.

Is it for the camera ? Okay, it seems better. But is it sufficient for keeping "a safe distance" ?

It's no troll or Nokia fanboyism, I would just understand why you say that, cause I don't see explanations (and Nokia has same harware or so, plus the Drive and Music apps). Where do you put the distance between the two ?

Thanks for your answer.

I don't understand - one of Key features is "Pretty good audio quality", but on the other hand, audio output is considered as "Uninspiring". Or am I missing something?
