This phone is not for the faint-hearted, but its build quality, screen size and camera make it the best Windows Phone on the market -- at least for now.

The Titan can certainly count itself among that standout minority, thanks to the way its oversized display, superb camera and overall build quality jibe so well with the generally slick and wonderful Windows Phone OS.

The HTC Titan is a solid and well-built offering for those looking to jump ship to the Windows Phone OS. It has a large 4.7-inch display that makes it a treat to watch videos, though pixel density is not the greatest due to the WVGA resolution.

Bottom line: If you want the largest display you can find on a Windows Phone--and don't mind the girth that goes along with it--the Titan won't disappoint.

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.

Those willing to grapple with the Titan, however, will find plenty to like. Build quality is second to none, the display delivers for multimedia and the camera is certainly one of HTC’s best.

In some respects, it's brilliant. But there are just some basic mistakes that needn't have been there. For many users, they won't be deal breakers - but for the ultra geeky ones like us, they just don't sit right.

The Titan will offer you a solidly built Windows Phone with ample storage space, a fantastic screen, a very nice camera and good call quality.
