4.7 inch display
The HTC Titan is possibly one of the most exciting Windows Phone 7 handsets yet, and raises the bar for the platform once more. With its 1.5GHz processor, 4.7 inch display, and fancy new camera, the Titan shows off HTC's prowess as one of the worlds leading smartphone manufacturers.
Solid industrial design
Collectively, second-generation Windows Phones are in limited supply as of right now, but thankfully the HTC Titan is here to get things rolling for the fledging mobile platform. Showcasing its larger than life presence, thanks to its unbelievably large display, the Titan is definitely a captivating handset on its own, but more importantly, it stands above most Windows Phones we've been checking out of late.
Battery goes a long way
The HTC Titan puts us in mind of a young posh boy who arrives at school on the new day of term wearing a suit and brogues. You know his parents have dressed him well, but there's a reason why he's no longer at his fancy school and is mixing with the rest of the kids. And that's because he's just not as bright as he wanted to be. That sounds harsh but we feel there's so much more that the HTC Titan could have been.
I'd been waiting for a smaller format 3G connected Pocket PC for a long time, and the TyTN lived up to my expectations. It's neat, tidy, well designed and pocketable. The keyboard works well and it is nice to see the scroll wheel return.I would have liked a hold button as it is easy to accidentally hit some of the side mounted buttons. A bit more memory either built in or on a supplied card would have been nice too. And the stylus is poor too.
Huge and lovely display
The HTC Titan and the Nokia Lumia 800 (not yet available in the US), are our two top picks for second generation high end Windows Phones. While the Lumia is extremely ergonomic and attractive in that Euro-chic way, the HTC speaks to those who want the biggest display along with a high quality metal casing. The Lumia 800 is the Alfa Romeo sports car to the HTC Titan's Escalade sensibility. It's big, it's posh and has all the creature comforts.
One of the top WP7 smartphones
As for whether or not this impresses as a Windows Phone 7 device, it is one of the top WP7 smartphones on the market and goes as far making Android and iOS dull by comparison. We love the social aspects, we love the interactive feel of the device, and how everything is brought to life by the OS, oh and that screen. Big really can be beautiful.
Affordable $100 pricing
Overlooking the obvious hardware improvements, like its larger display and camera, the absolute best thing going for the Motorola ATRIX 2 is its tempting $99.99 on-contract price. At that level, it's almost guaranteed to attract hungry consumers who are strapped in the wallet with cash - while still offering a top of the line experience similar to the competition.
The Motorola Atrix 2 falls a bit short of the best Android phones, but is in the same league. The phone runs fast, has a bright screen and lasts all day. But if we had to pick an Android phone, we'd either choose the Samsung Galaxy S2 or wait for the Galaxy Nexus - and the Motorola Razr is probably the superior device coming from the Moto brand.
High end smartphone for only $99 with contract
For $99 with contract, this is a lot of high end Android goodness. If you're a Moto fan or simply are looking for the best Android phone you can get for little money, the Motorola Atrix 2 and LG Thrill 4G are our top budget picks on AT&T. In fact, it feels weird to call them budget phones since their specs are anything but budget. If you've got more to spend, the Atrix 2 has obvious competition from the Samsung Galaxy S II and iPhone 4S.
So here's the lowdown on the Motorola Atrix 2: it's the Atrix 4G with a slight redesign and a few refreshed specs. That's all there is to it. We enjoyed our time with the sequel and it fits the $100 price tag (with a two-year commitment, of course) wonderfully, but anyone looking to purchase the device shouldn't be expecting the groundbreaking smartphone its predecessor was when it first launched.
Unique webtop functionality
The Motorola Atrix 4G is one of the finest phones ever created. It's well-designed, with a sleek form factor and smooth metal backing. The hardware inside is cutting edge, with performance so fast you'll find yourself using your phone more and more - and your notebook less and less. That's one unforseen aspect of having such a fast device: it's so nice to use that you simply use it more.
Excellent battery life
The Motorola Atrix 2 is a worthy successor to the original Atrix, but a lack of compatibility with older accessories means no cheap hand-me-downs. Motorola has also confirmed that the Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) upgrade will be only available in Q3--which is really late. You may want to hold out for the upcoming ICS handsets instead.
