Review: HTC Titan Windows Phone with Mango
The Titan has an excellent 8-megapixel camera. While it doesn't live up to the incredible camera found on HTC"s Amaze 4G, it is still one of the better 8-megapixel shooters I have tested in recent memory.
Images are crisp in focus, rich in detail, free of graininess and noise, and are mostly accurate with respect to white and color balance. The dual-LED flash is definitely helpful for making indoor shots turn out, though I sometimes saw a bluish tint to "flashed" photos. The Titan gets exposure right most of the time, and I found the resultant images to be really good.
Given how easy it is to share photos with a Windows Phone Mango device, you're going to want to share, share, and share again.

The Titan captures video at 720p HD. As with the still images, video looks mostly excellent. It is sharp and clear, warm and colorful, and the Titan handled sweeping changes in lighting without breaking a sweat. The one thing I noticed — and this is typical for 1080 and 720p HD video cameras — is some stuttering when the Titan is panned about. It is best to shoot 720p HD video holding the Titan still. If you're going to be panning around a lot, I'd suggest dialing down to 480p HD or less to reduce the stuttering effect.
