I just picked up a new HTC Titan from the AT&T store. Loving it so far, getting into the customization now, and learning the phone, any (free) apps/games you guys recommend? I'm not a huge app person but some wouldn't hurt. Already have my XBL account connected haha

Anyone recommend a place to pick up a case + cover?

Well, getting case/cover would be easiest, from Amazon.

And congratulations!

congrats Allad, how is it so far? have also decided to get a Windows phone, the two options are the Titan and the Nokia Lumia 800...which one do you think is better guys? i like the fact the the Lumia doesn't have a conventional battery, so there's no need to open it up at all.

Allad, how's the camera on the Titan?

@ neoadorable. id personally get the Lumia. But Titan is a brilliant phone san the LCD.

Also. If u can.. the Nokia 900 is just around the corner. It will sure blow some pants off.

And one more thing. If somebody owns a Samsung. They can unlock their phone for free :D like i just did.. and now my phone is sporting UNLIMITED ACCENT COLORS!!! :D :D :D

I'm holding on to my 3GS until the Nokia Windows Phones hit the US and then I'll be upgrading, hopefully to the 900. Can't wait, I really like my wife's Samsung Focus, but the hardware is a bit too weak for me.

I haven't seen one in person but from what I've seen on the internet it looks like the S-LCD on the Titan is as good as or better than the OLED screens on Samsung's phones. I'm always quite impressed by the black level I see on the Titan and the colours look more realistic.

Lumia is probably the one of the more overrated Windows Phone's put there. It's camera doesn't match upto the Titan's, doesn't even have a front facing camera (although, tbf, very few people actaully use FF cameras), it's battery life certainly isn't on par with the Titan's, the keyboard and messaging experience is a lot worse than the Titan (unless your a woman or a man with very small hands, 4.65" is just a lot easier to type on than a 3.7", especially when you're walking), and audio quality on the Lumia over headphones is probably the worst of any current Windows Phone handset, and the nice looking polycarbonate body is nullified by the fact that it's the most ridiculously mess attracitve material ever. Touch it with even clean hands and you'll probably leave messy greasy looking finger prints all over it's body - and even with warm water it's a chore to clean the damn thing. You spend two inutes just trying to clean the same area and still not get it looking clean. That's probably the reason they include a free case in the box - you really do have ot use it :p Of course, that then takes away some of the phones attractiveness....

Having a Titan, a Lumia and an Omnia 7 right next to me, I can tell you the Titan's screen doesn't hold and candle to the other two quality wise. Black levels are evidently much worse, as are the viewing angles. Unless you view hte Titan's screen straight on, or *directly* from the left / right / bottom / top, everything washes out and the contrast goes down, compared to the constant viewing angles of SAMOLED based displays. There's also something to say for how rather cool it looks when you realise you can't actaully tell where the screen ends, it just looks nice :p The better contrast also makes pictures look a lot richer on the Lumia than the Titan, but without over blowin or over satutating anything.

Of course, I'd rather have a big screen that I can type on easier :p

That's interesting as I've read a number of reviews that say the opposite. This highlights the need to have working phones available in shops so you can compare the different phones properly. Thanks.

The only areas the titan beats the Lumia 800 imo are in the fact it has a FFC (for those who care), the bigger screen as well and the camera is actually better which is a first.

The rest are pretty much the same really. For that matter a Lumia 900 with a good camera like other Nokia phones and a 4"-4.3" display isn't overrated in my book, we just have to wait for it. I went into a vodafone shop to see if I could check out a titan, hold it in my hand to get an idea of the size, but the one in my town is pretty small and only have a small subset of phones on display so it wasn't there. They only had the radar up on display as far as Windows Phones goes.

Isn't the Titan also slightly faster than the Lumia 800 (1.5Ghz vs 1.4Ghz processor)?
