With most retail stores shut for Easter, you can go online to AT&T's website and order the Windows Phone powered HTC Titan II which has some big time specs including a 4.7 inch Super LCD screen and an impressive 16MP rear-facing camera...

Yea know you can get the original Titan for $260 brand new on eBay. It's thinner, has the same screen, has a more metallic feel, has a removable battery, and has been out for a while with all the requisite updates. The Titan II doesn't really deserve the "II" moniker. It's more like a Titan LTE. The much thicker profile and nonremovable back really makes you wonder what the heck they were thinking whne they decided to make a second one when the specs are completely identical, down to the exact same screen, no improvement whatsoever. The 16mp is of course the headline grabber, but it cannot do 1080p, does NOT have the fancy ImageSense chip that makes the HTC One series snap photos almost instantly, and is super thick by modern phone standards. Those 16mp images better be AMAZING! for all the shortcomings. The price is $199 w/ contract. Why not just pay $60-70 more and own the original Titan???

The only respectable wp7 that came from HTC was the HD7. Everything about it was perfect besides the screen and camera. This was one line they could have continued and made better. But no, they always have to make something new with different names and minor tweaks.

AT&T has done that for years. Where have you been?
8. shinywindow (Posts: 88; Member since: 06 Apr 2012)
i think att is purposely killing windows. they release phones on holidays they are closed and also at the same time as a better cheaper devise. when u go to their store the windows phone display is way in the back. coldd dark and boring section. this phone is what is kiling htc name.

AT&T has always released phones on Sundays. You must be new.
21. nino313 (Posts: 2; Member since: 02 Aug 2011)
Yes they always release on Sundays but why would they release on a holiday? Any other Sunday stores would be open

Do WP's not need a GB of RAM? Are they able to work faster on less RAM? Because even the Lumia has half a GB of RAM. WP really needs to step it up. Their specs are so 2 years ago. Single core processors, not much RAM, some don't have SD slots. WP would break ahead if they put out high spec'd phones to compete with Android.
12. baldilocks (Posts: 561; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
Do your research before you speak. Windows phones don't need all those specs to run smoothly.

For other's it doe's.... To you no. you'r
just a basic user, unlike other's who
prefer that extra 512 Ram! & other specs.....
17. TROLL.ISAHA (banned) (Posts: 535; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
Wouldn't you like V8 instead of the V6
Wouldn't you like that extra 50BHP and Torque.......
23. baldilocks (Posts: 561; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
Umm? That extra processing power isn't going to make anything faster or smoother so what's the point of having it? You are fighting a losing argument.
27. TROLL.ISAHA (banned) (Posts: 535; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
Really what uneducated unwise answer....
okay let's put the msm7227 and adreno 200
Instead of those two specs! Look's like you'r
just an user. Read number 15¡ well enjoy you'r
life in the slow lane....

I am a Verizon customer for 10 years and alot of people in the past didn't like what I had to say about Verizon. Well, to these haters, this is what I have to say:
And so this proves once again that a company like AT&T are rolling out phones like the Titan II with big features and big screens and a company like Verizon is rolling out a weak ass clown phone like the LG Lucid. And yet you wonder why AT&T is not #1. Point proven and case closed.

it's weird and stupid, if a phone get's released it
should be available on all networks.... WTF

on all 5 networks! most delayed by 3 week's....

How did Microsoft get so far behind the curve when it comes to supporting dual-core processors? Android has supported dual core for over a year now, and MS still won't support them until the end of this year??? Windows phone would be in *way* better shape by now if the specs of these phones (WVGA instead of 720p, for instance) weren't held back by software limitations.
19. Jyakotu (Posts: 824; Member since: 12 Dec 2008)
You've obviously never used a Windows Phone. Majority of them do not need dual core processors to run smoothly without lag. Microsoft has made it so that the OS runs smoothly with just a single-core processor. Whereas Android is about specs, Windows Phone is more about the cohesive experience and software. Heck, even 1st generation Windows Phones will be able to run Windows Phone 8 AND all apps will be compatible with them.
I'd also like to point out that many manufacturers are STILL releasing low end Android phones with 600 MHz and 800 MHz processors with the "outdated" Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
Besides, most Android phone manufacturers use the same design for their phones. They only "stand out" because they make their skins to lay over the core Android experience. Microsoft is doing manufacturers a favor by NOT allowing them to change the look of the beautiful Metro UI. Manufacturers need to look to Nokia to see how you do Windows Phone right. They need to focus on new hardware designs and form factors with a combination of exclusive apps in order to make their phones standout. Unfortunately, manufacturers are too lazy to even invest in Windows Phone, even though they have the basic tools to differentiate their devices.
24. baldilocks (Posts: 561; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
Why? WP7 doesn't require nearly the amount of resources and processing power than Android and iOS do. Having more RAM or more processors isn't going to make a bit of difference.
People are too caught in in 'specs'. It's meaningless as far as WP7 goes.
20. davin8r (Posts: 45; Member since: 28 Apr 2011)
Smoothness of operation and overall cohesive experience are crucially important, no doubt; however, a 720p screen with high pixel density looks a lot better than WVGA with low pixel density. 1080p video looks better than 720p. Why (when all is said and done) will it have taken MS *two years* longer than Google to support multi-core processors?
22. ahhxd717 (Posts: 323; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
While I love WP7, I agree with MS taking so long to at least support multi core and higher resolution displays
30. Jyakotu (Posts: 824; Member since: 12 Dec 2008)
Again, multi-core is NOT needed to have a flawless Windows Phone experience. The only reason Windows Phones will be supporting multi-core processors is to appease people like you who think that having more cores = a better experience. Multi-cores for Windows Phones will probably only be useful for gaming and nothing more.

I'm fine with wp7 phones not have quad core processors or 8gb of ram, but the price needs to be adjusted accordingly. 0-100$ is were this phone should be.
