HTC’s much anticipated Windows Phone HTC Titan has been unveiled earlier last month. Unfortunately, we couldn’t cover the news at that time. Better late than never. HTC Titan, which appeared on several stats site, has always blown our minds as it was claimed to have largest screen. Well, those speculations were not wrong.
HTC Titan sporting 4.7” SLCD screen, which makes you feel like you’re having a beast in your hand. Titan is unlike anything you’ve ever held in your palm. However, at some point of time you might feel that it lacks the essential features, which is now commonly available in many android phones, like HDMI out, microSD card slot, 1080 full HD video recording capability and more.
Running on 1.5 GHz processor, Titan is powered by Windows Phone Mango OS, which has been rolled out to the world last week. If you’ve not got the Mango OS on your device, then our tutorials section will guide you on how to force Zune to get Mango update. Let us have a glance at the feature of HTC Titan before we move on further criticizing the bad and praising the good side of the device.

HTC Titan, like new models comes with unibody aluminium design, which gives it an upper hand over other competitors, where sturdiness matters the most. However, you may feel that there is nothing new in design. It looks more like some of the previous models of HTC.
This is an era of dual-core processor. We have already seen many powerful android handsets running on dual-core processor, so you may not be inclined to stick to HTC’s 1.5GHz single core processor. In short future, you may feel that your processor is not powerful enough compared to other mobile devices.
HTC Titan is a first kind of Windows Phone , which sports 1.3 MP front-facing camera, which may be justified soon when Tango is released. It will help you to make video or conference calls using the front-facing camera. Although, the main camera has 8MP camera, it lacks recording 1080p videos (which should not be of much problem to normal people).
FM radio, 1080p video recording, microSD card slot are missing from the device. The only advantage HTC Titan possesses is that it runs on Mango right out of the box, but it shouldn’t tempt many of us to try it out since Mango will be eventually rolled out to all by the end of this month. No one will be left behind.
