Guys and Gals,

Great news !!

I have finally received my brand spanking new TITAN...

And I have been surprised already with the great increase in build quality of HTC, and not to forget that they have done wonders with that camera.

A couple of things they don't mention in the specs:

a. It now records in 720p with Stereo sound

b. Noise cancellation in phone calls, absolutely splendid call quality.

c. Despite HTC saying that Internet sharing was added by Microsoft too late, it is their in the settings and works very well

d. a SIM Toolkit app in settings to use with network provider SIM service options !

e. Samsung flash memory is used rather than a microsd card for the 16gb internal memory

f. WP Bench results

CPU
TIME : 15407ms
SEQ 4.86`'5 L/s
PAR 5.55 `'5 L/s

DATA
TIME : 17549ms
BLOCK 5MB
MEM 22.02 MB/s
STOR 10.54 MB/s

GPU
1224 FRAMES AVG : 40 F/s


For once I am actually genuinely happy with what HTC have produced

Any other info anybody would like let me know....

Pictures and even videos please

Does it feel solid or plasticky? Is the build quality superior to the HD7. How big is it really? How's the display and does it make all the text bigger as the resolution is the same...Battery life?

I am so excited for this phone

The Titan feels very solidly metal, the build is absolutely superb, One cannot compare the HD7 to this beast!

It doesn't feel too big, in fact it feels very very thin in the hand; the feel is such that I get the same dimensional feeling when I hold my Galaxy S2

Everything is bigger, the tiles, the text, and especially the keyboard are much much more touch friendly

Battery life so far I really can't say anything.....

Ammar, the display is a beauty, the blacks are deep, viewing angles are excellent ~ 160/160.

There is no pixelation whatsoever, and best of all unlike the HD7 there is no ghosting of scrolling white text on black background

Please post pictures and video!

Also, if you could take some pictures and video with the camera, that would be great.

Use youtube, and imgur.com to host the video and images respectively.

Thanks!

I will try to get some pics up later perhaps....

However, bigger and brighter news

The Titan seems not to be using a microsd card for the internal storage, rather SAMSUNG flash memory.....


This again seems to show that this handset really is worthy of being a flagship device

Could you list your HKLM/Services/SimToolkit registry settings?
