Cracking Open the HTC Titan II

HTC Titan II teardown

Released in April 2012, the HTC Titan II is a solid Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) handset. But, how does its hardware compare to the previous Titan (just a few months old) and Nokia's flagship Windows Phone handset--the Lumia 900? Following along as I crack open the HTC Titan II for a look at the hardware inside.

For a detailed analysis of the teardown, check out my article and video, Titan II teardown shows replaceable battery, similarities with Lumia 900.

Can it run Windows Phone 8 ? No, it's already obsolete and in the sh1t bin.

What is the limitation for two quality cameras? 16mp vs 1.3mp.

Second line phone but quality components inside. I think you should add two more pics: the start screen, and the menu screen of any device before cracking it, I am always eager to see the device on. Excellent Bill, i never miss your openings.. Best regards from Argentina..!

Had a lumia in my hands this morning and I was not inpressed with the OS at all ,the User logic is something that does not exist in this os. Handed the user my S2 and I played with lumia. She was operating the s2 in 5 Min I was still trying to make chages and stop the music.... Not a lot of hope for the MS OS Droid all the way Hugo

Glad you enjoy my cracking opens. Thanks for the feedback about the start/menu screenshots. Unfortunately, I'm not always able to include them as some phones require activation to move past the initial startup. And, we usually don't activate the phones we crack open. In the future, I'll try to add them when I can.
