HTC Titan II (AT&T)

The Good With an arrestingly large 4.7-inch screen, 4G LTE, satisfying performance, and the highest-resolution camera ever on a U.S. smartphone, the HTC Titan II raises the bar for Windows Phone devices.

The Bad While an ultrasharp shooter sounds great, we're not sure about paying an extra $100 for the privilege. The phone's massive size could be an issue for smaller hands and the display wasn't as sharp as we'd like.

The Bottom Line The HTC Titan II pushes the limit of just how big and capable a Windows smartphone can be. If it weren't for the lower-priced Nokia Lumia 900, the Titan II would be the greatest Windows Phone 7 handset to walk the earth.

HTC Titan II (AT&T)

The HTC Titan II is every bit true to its mythological namesake. If it were cheaper than the Nokia Lumia 900, or if its rival didn't exist at all, it would be the biggest, baddest smartphone running Microsoft's operating system. It has agreeable performance and a few standout features under its large 4.7-inch-screened hood, but that same display left me hanging in other ways. And though its design is metallic and sturdy,it wasn't without its flaws. Find out if it's worth the splurge or if a cheaper Windows handset is a better choice.

Design
HTC didn't step outside the box when designing the new Titan II. The phone is almost identical to its predecessor, the original HTC Titan. At 5.1 inches tall by 2.8 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick, this handset is just as much of a behemoth. Sculpted in the flat, rectangular slab shape that's become so common in today's smartphones, the Titan II is the spitting image of many of HTC's Android handsets. Tipping the scales at a hefty 6 ounces, the Titan II will weigh you down. But even so, the phone's soft-touch metallic gray finish, rounded curves, and tightly beveled edges give it a premium feel. I had no trouble wrapping my paws around it, but the Titan II's large size will pose a challenge for smaller hands.
