The HTC TITAN II is the first Windows Phone to combine a stunning 4.7-inch WVGA Super LCD screen, an industry leading 16MP professional quality camera, and the blazing fast speed of AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The full-featured smartphone has an industry-leading camera that makes it easy to capture and share high-quality photos. A 16 Megapixel rear-facing camera delivers an abundance of detail and the specialized image processor delivers superior image clarity and exposure in every picture. The dedicated camera button and image stabilization allows the user to click, point, and capture high-quality images with minimal effort while the back-illuminated sensor enables higher-quality photographs in low-light environments. Along with the 4.7-inch display, 4G LTE, and DLNA support, the TITAN II makes viewing and sharing pictures as easy as taking them.
The TITAN II also brings a rich set of adjustable settings allowing photography enthusiasts total control over their pictures, including shutter speed, ISO setting (up to 1600), white balance, brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness. Software-assist options include red eye reduction, image stabilization, metering mode, and flicker adjustment.
TITAN I vs. II
What are the major differences between the original TITAN and this version? First, HTC has the TITAN II running full throttle on AT&T's speedy 4G network. Second, the engineers increased the camera megapixel size from 8 to 16MP for higher quality images to share with family and friends. The TITAN II also has a slightly larger battery than it's predecessor (1730mAh vs. 1600mAh).
With AT&T's 4G HSPA+ network, you'll enjoy mobile broadband speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's already fast mobile broadband network (learn more below). You also get the AT&T Mobile Hotspot service built right into the smartphone--enabling you to connect additional Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the phone's mobile broadband signal (requires appropriate data plan). This GPS-enabled phone can also access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions.
Note: AT&T's 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.
The TITAN II weighs 5.2 ounces and measures 5.12 x 2.76 x 0.39 inches. Its 1730mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of talk time, and up to 12 days (GSM) and 10 days (UMTS) of standby time. It runs on AT&T's LTE (700/AWS MHz), UMTS Tri-band (850/1900/2100 MHz), and GSM Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) .

The Power of Windows Phone 7.5
The Windows Phone 7.5 operating system has been designed to help you do more in fewer steps, and keep you updated on the things that are most important to you.
You can customize the Live Tiles on your Start Screen with what you care about--from people to web sites--and they'll continuously scan the web to keep you updated about your world at a glance.
Improved Live Tiles.
Windows Phone 7.5 also brings together the things you use most on your phone in six Hubs: People, Pictures, Office, Games, Music + Video, and Marketplace. Grouping them in Hubs like this lets you get to what you need, quicker, because you don't have to jump from apps to the web to contact lists.
The latest release of Windows Phone--version 7.5, codenamed "Mango"--has hundreds of improvements and new features. Here's just a sample:
Multitasking: Now you can keep your place in a game while reading e-mail or listen to music apps while texting. Many apps can run in the background, so you don't need to shut one down to use another--plus you can switch between open apps in a flash.
Improved Live Tiles: The Live Tiles on Start dish up more (and quicker) updates on your apps, and they're also a whole lot of fun--the Pictures Tile animates with a slideshow of your favorite snapshots and Group Tiles flash your friends' latest updates.
Threads: Start with a text, and finish in Facebook or Messenger chat (or vice versa). The whole conversation stays in one thread, and all it takes to switch back and forth is a tap.
Send a text with your voice: With Speech, you can text, search the web, and lots more, totally hands- (and sometimes eyes-) free. Your phone can even read you an incoming text, and then you can use Speech to dictate and send your reply.
Find nearby restaurants, shops, and things to do with Local Scout.
Local Scout: Powered by Bing, Local Scout teams up search and mapping to show you nearby restaurants, shopping, and activities in a single tap.
Driving directions: Your Windows Phone can get you where you're going by showing you on the map or giving you directions from where you are.
More social networks: Twitter and LinkedIn are now built into Windows Phone, so practically everything you do on your social networks is a tap away. Windows 7.5 also includes new ways to filter all those new contacts and their social updates.
Persistent camera settings: Now if you change camera settings--for instance, photo resolution, brightness, or another option your phone manufacturer might have included--you can save them for the next time you use the camera.
History view: Contact cards now show the history of your recent calls, e-mails, texts, and chats with the person. Just tap in the list to return the call or go to the thread.
Visual voice-mail: See your voice-mails in a list, then listen to them on your phone.
Sync with SkyDrive: You can sync your Office docs between SkyDrive and your phone, so you can edit them on your phone now, then edit some more on your computer later.
What is 4G?
4G is a wireless technology term meaning "Fourth Generation." 4G follows 3G as the latest addition to AT&T's mobile broadband network. When combined with enhanced backhaul, 4G means faster speeds, where data transfers take less time to complete. AT&T has upgraded the software of its nationwide mobile broadband network with HSPA+ which, with enhanced backhaul, enables speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's already fast mobile broadband speeds. And now, AT&T is evolving to even faster 4G speeds with the launch of AT&T's 4G LTE technology in select markets.
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
How does AT&T 4G differ from other 4G networks?
AT&T is the only network offering two layers of 4G technology: HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul and LTE, both capable of delivering 4G speeds. Customers will have access to fast speeds as they move in and out of 4G LTE areas. Customers of competitors who do not have HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul are likely to see a steep drop-off in speeds when they move out of LTE areas.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.
Optional AT&T Services
AT&T Navigator: This premium GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to Yellowpages.com. You'll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.
AT&T FamilyMap: Locate any phone indoors or outdoors on the AT&T Network. FamilyMap provides peace of mind by being able to conveniently locate a family member from your wireless phone or PC and know that your family's information is secure and private. Want to verify that your child arrives home from school each day? Set up a Schedule Check to automatically get location information sent to you via text message or e-mail.

Now, as far as this phone, it has the best camera I have ever used on a phone and better than most point and shoots as well. It is 16 mp wide angle, fast lens, and comes with boatloads of options. It takes low light shots like a DSLR. Nuff said. The design of the T-II buttons and the overall feel has been improved so even though it is a large 4.7 screen (which is a beautiful, bright, natural looking, LCD+) it is easily handled, even one handed. The phone screen is unique in that the glass curves out at the bottom allowing better access to the capacitance buttons which have also been moved closer together. The overall look has been improved so that its even more classy looking and the back, which still looks like its metallic is now curved and a textured material that allows a great grip. If you can't tell, I love, love this phone. Oh, and did I mention its LTE 4G which means that it is faster than your broadband at home. Try 20-22 mbps vs 3 mbps I would get on my TITAN 3G+
I've played around with the Lumia 900 (the other "state-of-the-art" LTE Windows Phone) so here's my opinion on how they stack up. The camera on the Titan 2 is 16 Megapixel vs 8 on the Lumia, and the colors seem a lot better on the Titan. However, the Lumia seems to be better at getting more of the picture in focus. The Lumia is a little thicker and heavier with a smaller screen and slightly slower processor but the design of that device is stunning. The screen on the Lumia is really amazing, though -- blacks are pitch black and colors are unbelievably colorful. The Lumia comes with some really cool apps like Nokia Drive (turn-by-turn directions). Both of these are solid phones, however, and I'm happy I picked the Titan II.
Grab either one of these and you will be in smartphone heaven...
If you have used one of the new Windows smartphones, then the tile interface used in the Windows 8 OS will look very familiar. Windows smartphones run the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system that uses the same tile interface that you will see on future Windows PC's.
I have been reviewing the HTC Titan II Windows Smartphone for the past few weeks and trying out the tile interface for myself. Since I am more familiar with demoing HTC Android smartphones with the HTC Sense interface, I have had a few challenges in using the HTC Titan II with the Windows Phone 7.5 interface. But overall, the HTC Titan II is a solid monster of a smartphone that Microsoft Windows users will like.
The Size is Enormous!!!
I own a HTC Thunderbolt smartphone that I affectionately call "The Beast" due to the huge 4.3" screen. Well, the HTC Titan II makes the HTC Thunderbolt look like a "pee wee" due to it's 4.7" screen. When I took the Titan II out of the box, I could not believe the enormous size of this smartphone. If you have poor eyesight like I do, then you will love big screen smartphones like the HTC Titan II. Watching Netflix and Hulu video on this phone is a real pleasure. All you need is some popcorn to feel like you're at the movies :)
Internet Sharing for up to 5 devices
I love when a smartphone can also be a mifi hotspot and the HTC Titan II can be used for Internet sharing for up to 5 devices.Read more ›
