Sadly it wipes out on its meagre WVGA (800x480) resolution that makes the homescreen tiles frankly comic in size.</p> <p>By comparison the Samsung Galaxy S2 manages to cram in a whole population of extra pixels on a slightly more manageable screen size. But at 9.9mm thin – and with a second-generation Snapdragon processor to save battery life – the Titan certainly has an advantage, courtesy of its big bright screen. It's great for the keyboard, if nothing else.

With Mango’s 500 new features we expect apps soon, though.</p> <p>So, what’s so great about Mango? WebOS might be in its death throes but its life wasn’t in vain, as WP Mango’s similar multi-tasking looks great on the huge Titan screen and runs smoothly despite Mango only supporting a single core.</p> <p>The ground-breaking homescreen tiles have been updated to hold more data, including that from apps, which could be a trend-setter. Sadly the trend of pull-down notifications hasn’t been added and getting to Wi-Fi is still a hassle. But with threaded social messaging pulling Facebook, SMS and Messenger into one place, you can save time and enjoy it using IE9’s slightly invasive location based browser. These are all small touches, but they set it apart from Windows Phone 7 with an impressive speed of evolution – Apple, take note.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/HTC_Titan_multitasking.jpg?1364298665" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HTC Titan – camera shy </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Very little has been said about the Titan’s camera, but under a dedicated side button sits an impressive 8MP f2.2 snapper capable of 720p video. While the video might be a bit blurry, the camera is brilliant. HTC has added burst and panoramic features, while maintaining strong colours and clear lighting balance.</p> <p>The camera is so good that Photo Enhancer’s Auto enhance does very little to snaps that are near-perfect efforts first time. Picture distortions such as Sepia, Vintage and Glimmer are fun extras that render instantly. The Nokia N8 and Samsung Galaxy S2 may have pioneered impressive photos and editing options, but the Titan has caught up quickly.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/HTC_Titan_Stuff.jpg?1364298665" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HTC Titan – iOS and Android killer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Titan’s nippy speed, huge display, deep Facebook integration and impressive 20-hour battery life make it HTC’s best handset since the Sensation, and certainly the best Windows Phone so far.</p> <p>With some more apps and a higher resolution display this would be a serious iOS and Android threat.

The Titan's screen is near edge-to-edge with a rich colourful display that dances in front of your eyes. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/hands-on/htc-titan-hands-on-review </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/htc/htc-titan-hands-review/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/htc/htc-titan-hands-review/news#comments HTC Titan Wed, 05 Oct 2011 18:03:36 +0000 Luke Edwards 418133 at http://www.stuff.tv
