Coming from an iPhone 4, I thought the Titan was going to be far too big and unwieldy. However, HTC have done a fantastic job of making the Titan's size deceptive. Firstly, there is very little bezel, making the front just one huge display. Secondly, the device is super thin, which makes it slip nicely into your pocket.
The display on the Titan is stunning. Colours are vibrant, blacks are deep, and viewing angles (only horizontal and vertical) are nearly 180 degrees. Resolution does leave something to be desired, as more live tiles could easily be fitted in at this size. The pixel density, however is not noticeable in everyday use.
Battery life has generally been good, but throw in any gaming or heavy browsing, and it drains a lot faster. I generally squeezed out 1-2 days of use.
Software is the same fantastic WP mango, with a few HTC preloaded apps (which can be uninstalled). The 1.5ghz processor means the OS blazes along, with smooth animations, and fast load times in games. In terms of apps, yes, there are a lot less than iOS and Android, but when you look at quality, not quantity, the marketplace is up there with the rest. Most popular apps are available, with some great exclusive games.
Overall, the Titan is a solid, premium feeling device, with a fantastic screen, and at the moment should be considered the flagship device for Windows Phone.
