If you want an idea of how fast the world of smartphone is moving the HTC Titan II is an example. It was only a few months ago that the HTC Titan was released, and now we already have an upgraded version. The phone that sported the giant 4.7 inch screen now also comes with 4G LTE service, so it might just be the one for you.
The physical location of the buttons and ports around the HTC Titan II has remained. On the top of the phone you will see the power button as well as the standard audio jack and the microUSB port on the left side. Meanwhile on the right are both the volume rocker and camera buttons. At 5.2 x 2.7 x 0.5 inches, the HTC Titan II is a tad bit thicker than its sibling but we feel that it still does sit well in our hands. The build quality as always is great seeing that it’s a HTC phone. Thanks to HTC’s soft touch coating on the back of the phone, it is really nice to hold. In all, the minor tweaks in design really make this a good looking phone.
There was never any doubt when it came to typing experience with the HTC Titan II as it has got such a huge screen. If you are not familiar with Windows Phone’s auto correction feature, then let us tell you that it’s awesome. So these two things go hand in hand in giving you one of the best typing experiences out there. There are a bunch of AT&T apps onboard like the Navigator, YPmobile as well as U-Verse Mobile. We are pleased to inform you that these apps can be uninstalled, so that’s one of the few personalizations you can boast about.
One of the major upgrades on the HTC Titan II would be the camera as we now have a 16MP camera instead of an 8MP one. It’s a wide-angle f2.6 lens and is backside illuminated plus it also comes with auto focus and image stabilization. All that sounds amazing, but when it came down to performance it was not outstanding. Color reproduction was natural and details were pretty good too. Indoor shots were a bit disappointing but we liked the image stabilization feature is it worked great. Videos are recorded at 720p, not the best out there but the results were smooth.
Another major upgrade of course would be the inclusion of 4G LTE support. Extra speed meant that the web browsing experience was always going to be great. Lack of Flash might bother some people but smooth performance all around might make up for that. In terms of connectivity options, we get the usual suspects like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and mobile hotspot feature.
Call quality was an issue on the HTC Titan II. Our friends on the other end had to go through piercing sounds which made them really uncomfortable holding the phone close to their ears. However, the same cannot be said on our end as we could make out what our friends were trying to say clearly and we are happy to note that the buzzing sound found on the predecessor is no longer found here. The battery onboard the HTC Titan II is a 1730mAh one which means it has been improved from the 1600mAh battery found on its predecessor. With average use, it took us through one full day.
