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 :cool:

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.....

Really want to know how the display is. 480x800 on 4.3'' was borderline so wondering how is it on 4.7''

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 :cool:

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:cool:

Well, the first batch mostly does not have problem with LCD monitors, as it should be with S-LCD.

What I worry about is the later batches, which may use TFT instead, like those HD7/Trophy/Pro with 7389 preloaded. Those LCD monitors have a poor viewing angle, which show negative images at around 50'. You will also see the monitor is yellowish around the edges while the middle is white, which is annoying.

Once your first batch Titan/Radar get something wrong after few months (or a year) and they change the one with poor TFT, then you will be likely to cry.:(

Good luck!

Performance is impressive, but the general user experience still on the screen, so the LCD panel does an important role here. (3.7" on TFT is barely acceptable, but 4.7" on TFT.........:( )

BTW, is your MEM/STOR mark for RAM only? How about the storage media (SDHC/NAND)?:)

did the htc titan just outperform the i937 in 2 out of 3 tests?
CPU and Data? The only thing it didn't outperform it in was gpu which was 41 vs the titan 40...now that is interesting
snap some photos! let's see what the camera can do!

1.5 GHz versus 1.4 GHz, everything else is equal. The HTC phones should be the fastest

Just got a beta radar 4g and I actually prefer it to the titan. The titan is nice but the build quality on the radar just feels superb. I wish they'd release something like the dvp except with a FFC, I'd be in love but for now I think I'm actually going to give the radar a few days. I wish I could add memory to it though :/...

    I have the HTC Titan & believe me the camera is excellent. Everything about this device is amazing. Really glad I went for it. After using it for about a week now. I couldn't be happier & feel I have made the correct choice. Quality!!!

    Panorama mode is superb, plenty of settings and they are retained after closing the camera app.

    People, can any of you have now got their Titan, confirm how much RAM is showing up in your devices, as when I check in Winphone Info, the total is 357,536 KB !!

    Surely that doesn't equate to 512 Mb ?!

    Some is dedicatwd to gpu. About 128mb is. Thats why a lot of their older phons came with an extra 64mb, like the hd7.

    Ive just upgraded to a Titan from an HD7 and I freaking love it.

    It was totally worth the upgrade. The camera seems to be great and the screen is fantastic. The old HD7 screen looks terrible in comparison. I couldnt go back now.
