HTC Titan Hands-on

0. phoneArena 01 Sep 2011, 13:34 posted on

With today's announcement, HTC unveiled not one, but two well-spec'd Mango-powered handsets, in the form of the HTC Titan and HTC Radar. Obviously, the much beefier of the two is the HTC Titan, which incorporates a pretty respectful list of features, the most impressive of which being its gigantic 4.7" screen...

Fail, waaay to big screen. 4.7 inch is way to big, and the Galaxy note announced earlier today is even bigger, what are they thinking ?

bigger is better? Im assuming people are using phones for their napoleonic complex as well. When you have an oversized screen in your pocket im assuming it makes look like your not just lame nerd thats a little too into phones....... Why would you want to carry around a phone that big makes no sense I think phones really shouldnt be any bigger than an I phone 4 or HTC sensation size anything bigger than that is uncomfortable to carry in your pocket and also ackward holding against your face as your talking lol a big slab of metal on your ear?? Telephone nerds are creepy...

How is the screen being that big a fail? Just b/c you don't like it? Lots of people like big screens. Some people have big hands. They're thinking that not everybody wants to carry around a big 10" tablet. You should just change your name to BadaBoy.

I think the Titan is created for people who have big hands. . . And the radar are for the average hands. . .

unless your 9 or 10 feet tall I doubt your "hands" need a phone that big. The nerdy guys that would buy something like that with their small weak frames wont need a phone that big. Even basketball players use Iphones nobody needs a screen thats almost 5 inches.....thats almost obnoxious. lol its the phone equivalent of the guy that drives around in an escalade and 28 inch rims tinted windows and blasting his music "anything to get noticed, and get attention of what he lacks"

@Peterlfromsweden...You are a Bada advocate, yet you always seem to be first in line to post on every WP article. Despite your protestations of 'planning to buy' a WP device, you are a WP hater.

WP is not going away; it is an alternative OS that people will choose. There really is no need for you to troll; however, you apparently enjoy doing so. Your behaviour is just sad.

Wow, this thing looks a BEAST.! I can't wait to play around with Mango. I'm growing tired of Android, to be honest, and I need something different, responsive, and an OS that I know will get updates due to the company behind it running the updates.

I don't want some over glorified feature phone, which is exactly what bada is.

definitely not.
bada is a smartphone OS, that in fact has more functions and more personalization options than WP7.
bada has multitasking, voice recgognition, app store, HTML 5 support, Flash Lite, file manager (something WP7 doesn't) office app, bada has everything needed to be called a smartphone OS.

I don't care what a European thinks of WP7, in my mind, WP7 > bada. It has all the functions I need. Personalization is on the back burner for me. I didn't even really personalize my Android phone th at much. It's all about functionality and WP7 handles that perfectly for me.

Flash Lite, you should have left that outta your argument :P

WP7 doesn't even have flash at all : P
Android is the only OS that has real flash anyway, so Flash lite is not bad...

Bada turned out to be a kids phone, not more and not less. I don't understand how people can buy phones these days almost without apps? and no, bada hasn't that much to offer on its own...
And its totally buggy, always running out of memory, has a poor browser (even bada 2 browser is slow compared to wp7), and getting gps to work is luck.
It's good hardware with poor software without support.

Apps, there are 6500 apps for the wave at the moment. And about 6400 of them are high quality apps like, UC browser, Assasins creed, Modern combat sandstorm, Weatherbug, Accuweather, AP news and so on.

Buggy, no. I have used my bada phones a lot, and i have never ever even experienced one bug in bada.

Always running out on memory ? sounds like you have an android. I've only run out of memory a few time, when i have been multitasking and using more than the 256 MB ram that the wave has.

The browser is really fast on bada. Just as fast as on WP7, and leaving Symbian web browser in the dust.

GPS works everytime on my Wave 2. I have not been able to get the GPS on the Wave s8500 to work, i have talked to Samsung about it and it seems to be the hardware, and not anything with bada. And since the GPS works just fine with the Wave 2, this is no problem for bada.

i'ts a great software, with great hardware = awesome.

you realize thats less apps than the blackberry market right? lol

and unless you have used 6400 apps you dont really know if they are high quality.

even if 2/3rd of android apps are crap, that still leaves nearly 100,000 apps for you to play with of high quality.

i know that 6400 apps is not alot, but all the apps i need are on samsungapps. Office app, games from gameloft, com2us, weather, recipe apps...
There are lot's more useful and high quality apps on samsungapps. With bada 2.0 an the wave 3, the amount of apps on samsungapps, will very likely increase alot.
And how i know 6400 out 6500 are quality apps ?
Of course i haven't gone trough all of the apps, but i have been browsing the samsungapps store alot, an from what i see there the big majority of apps are high quality.

In fact, when i have browsed the Ovi store (which has over 40.000 apps), there has been more quality apps on samsungapps than ovi store, even though ovi store has more apps.

I say it like this, it is not the amount of apps, it is the quality that is important.

I'm very sorry about your ignorance but,
Since mango update, WP7 has multitasking, the best voice recognition+text to speech features of any mobile or other device available, possibly the fastest growing app store ever & office 365 (The best mobile office client imo) with cloud features.

Um, in case you didn't know....updates for WP7 phones also have to pass muster with the carriers just like Android updates. They have been delayed by the carriers and manufacturers as witnessed by the updates for Samsungs WP7 phones on AT&T and Verizon.

Its a Windows phone. 7.5 I think due to the limitations of the OS itself explains why the screen is only 800x480

To me its just an updated HD7.

Its not a bad phone. ITs pretty smooth, not much lag,apps work fine.
