Review: HTC Titan II for AT&T
In the end, the HTC Titan II is a tiny bit of a let down. I was expecting better. Aside from perhaps being a bit on the heavy side, the Titan II's hardware is fine. The display looks good and calls sound great. However, the waffle-y LTE 4G signal performance and poor 4G battery life leave me with some reservations.
The user interface is owned by Microsoft, and that means the Titan II offers a consistent experience when compared to other Windows Phones. It is speedy, powerful, and offers plenty of tools for managing your communications, photos, media, and other apps/services. HTC did nothing special or extraordinary with the software on this device to make it stand apart from other Windows Phones. In fact, it did far less than Nokia to enhance the user experience.
The camera, though, is the biggest disappointment. I mean, it's good, but when you buy into the whole "16-megapixel camera, dude!" concept, you expect better performance.

In sum, the Titan II isn't going to sink like the Titanic - not by any means - but it's a hard call between the Lumia 900 and the Titan II. I'd recommend fans of Windows Phone go to an AT&T store and play with both in order to make the best decision.
