Nokia Lumia 900 vs HTC Titan II

Introduction and Design

Windows Phones have been tearing it up over on AT&T’s lineup, as both the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II came storming onto the scene simultaneously. AT&T is the premier carrier of choice when it comes to Windows Phones in general, but surely enough, we’re betting that a few of you are still holding out to find out which one you should invest your hard earned money into. Well folks, you won’t have to wait a single moment longer because we’re pitting these two top shelf Windows Phones to find out exactly which one can claim the throne to itself.


Despite being a typical quality HTC made smartphone, the Titan II just simply lacks the freshness associated with the Nokia Lumia 900’s unique looking design. Indeed, both are fashioned from premium materials and are solid with their constructions, but ultimately it’s the Lumia 900 that has the polarizing attraction to reel in our eyes right from the onset. Don’t get us the wrong, the HTC Titan II is still a beauty in its own right, but after feasting our eyes on the unibody design of the Lumia 900, it’s undeniable that we adore the approach taken by Nokia.

Honestly, we’re not fond of the dedicated power button, shutter keys, and volume controls with both smartphones – mainly because they’re a bit too flat and don’t offer enough tactility when pressed. On the other hand, we didn’t have any issues in regards to accidental presses with their capacitive Windows buttons below. Lastly, the two boast commonalities such as 3.5mm headset jacks, microUSB ports, and dual-mics.

In terms of cameras, the HTC Titan II shouts loudly with its beefy 16-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and an F2.6 lens, while the Nokia Lumia 900 carries a respectable 8-megapixel one with dual-LED flash and an F2.2 aperture lens. Meanwhile, above their displays, the two share the same 1.3-megapixel front-facing cameras that are ready for the occasional Tango video chatting session.


Let’s be honest here people! There’s plenty to like about their respective displays, even more when they’re the better looking ones amongst the current generation Windows Phone crop. Overall, the Nokia Lumia 900’s 4.3” WVGA ClearBlack AMOLED display has the wow factor thanks to its saturated color tones, better visibility outdoors, and its ability to produce the deeper black color. In contrast, the 4.7” WVGA S-LCD display of the Titan II is remarkable primarily for its size, but aside from that, there’s nothing much else to be thrilled about.
