HTC Titan II Hands On: Giant Windows Phone Now Has 16MP Camera and LTE

The Titan II is the good kind of sequel: It doesn't screw up anything that made the original a fan favorite, but it adds everything they want. Like a crazy 16-megapixel camera, LTE (at least on AT&T over in the States) and a massiver battery.

It really is just like the original Titan, but with a slightly fresher industrial design—it's prettier!—and LTE and a big-baller camera packed in. So on the LTE front, despite a million people packed on AT&T's network, we're getting 10Mbps downstream pretty consistently, and even heavy web pages load with serious zip, between the Titan II's 4G and 1.5GHz processor.

But what about the camera? It's pretty damn good, considering how many pixels are crammed into the phone. Autofocus and shooting is plenty quick, though sometimes I wish Windows Phone gave you slightly more control over the camera. I'm working on getting some full size photos up on Flickr, but here's one to hold you over.

All in all, there's not much more to say, though, than it seems like a pretty solid update to an already solid phone.

Still no word on either Titan in Australia, though MobiCity is selling the first-gen Titan for $699.
