HTC Titan 2

HTC Titan 2Though they got off to a slow start, Windows smart phones have really come into their own this year. The new Nokia Lumia 900 is getting a lot of press lately, and with good reason. But it’s hardly the only WP7 model that shows a lot of promise. Even HTC is getting in on the act with their Titan 2 smart phone. Equipped with stellar hardware under the hood and a slick implementation of Windows Phone 7, it’s been garnering a lot of positive critical response. Here’s everything you need to know about the HTC Titan 2.

Lets get closer to HTC Titan 2:

Design

In terms of design and dimensions, the HTC Titan II is big and surprisingly svelte. Its massive 4.7-inch screen is the first thing you’ll notice about this model. The next thing you’ll notice is that it’s a reasonable 0.50 inches thick, which is more than the iPhone 4S and numerous competing Android phones. Regardless, it feels like an appropriate depth considering the size of the overall package. As for the exterior, the Titan II is the typical HTC trendiness. Wrapped in metallic gray hardened plastic, it looks pretty much like a bigger version of every other HTC candy bar on the market.

Features & Hardware

The Titan II kicks the smart phone arms race into high gear with its burly internal computing muscle. It features a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 CPU, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of on-board storage space. The display is a 4.7-inch Super LCD with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. While it doesn’t feature microSD for expansion, there is an included microUSB port for connectivity purposes. The real star of the show is the Titan II’s 16 MP, 720p rear camera, one of the highest-definition phone camera units on the market.

Operating System + Apps

The HTC Titan II runs WP7.5 “Mango”, the revised and retooled version of the original Windows Phone 7. Users can take advantage of hubs, configurable tiles, threaded conversations and more thanks to the Metro UI that rides atop the WP7.5 ecosystem. Default applications include Bing, MS Office and Local Scout. In addition, HTC tacks on helpful utilities like Watch, Photo Enhancer, Locations and Notes. Additional software can be had by visiting the Windows Phone Marketplace, which features a quickly expanding stable of over 70,000 apps.

Networking

Alongside the Nokia Lumia 900, the HTC Titan 2 is one of the first 4G LTE Windows phones to debut on AT&T’s mobile network. As an AT&T phone, it’s GSM only at the moment. Users can look forward to average download speeds in the 14 to 15 Mbps range, with the possibility of 30 Mbps under the right conditions. Obviously, you’ll need to be operating in a metropolitan area for the most part to take advantage of those speeds, but the fallback 3G option isn’t bad either. All in all, the Titan II on AT&T is more or less the equal of any 4G phone available in terms of bandwidth.

Pros and cons of HTC Titan II

Pros

Let’s begin with the good before we delve into the HTC Titan II’s handful of drawbacks. For starters, its 1,730 mAh battery provides up to 11 hours of life for best-in-class performance. It boasts decent image quality on its display thanks to its 199 PPI density, and it’s got loads of screen real estate to work with. Furthermore, WP7.5 on the HTC titan 2 is smooth as butter as demonstrated by numerous early reviews from testers and critics alike. The internal silicon is as powerful as it gets, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a faster processor as far as general computing is concerned.

Cons

A full GB of RAM would have been nice, but that’s really the only drawback of this phone aside from the lack of a microSD card. Some might not appreciate the sheer size of its display, which can be a little tough to get used to. If a 4.7-inch display isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other phones with screens smaller than 4.0 inches to choose from. The real hurdle that WP7.5 phones like the Titan II will have to overcome isn’t poor hardware or software, but the perception among the general public that Microsoft can’t do mobile correctly.

Overall Impression

As with the Nokia Lumia 900, the HTC Titan II is one of the first phones to provide a world-beating Windows experience. It has the potential to rapidly become a bestseller due to the large number of casual and corporate users who feel comfortable with Windows and would be more than happy with a smart phone that runs it competently. The HTC titan 2 snaps great photos, is quick in everyday operation and is a solidly-constructed piece of mobile hardware that’s built to last. Its balanced feature set, modern design and seamless performance should be enough to tempt a few Android users away from the fold.

Here is a hands on review video of HTC Titan 2:

The Verdict

Despite one or two notable downsides, the Titan II offers a compelling alternative to iOS and Android thanks to its ridiculous battery life, superlative performance and seamless software integration. The HTC Titan IIcame along at the right time in WP7’s evolution, making it the perfect phone to introduce the masses to Microsoft’s mobile offerings. While iOS and Android fanatics will surely scoff at anything Windows-based, the HTC Titan II is nothing to sneeze at.

You can find all of these apps mentioned below in Apple App Store without any problems.

iPhone apps & Tools to Make Free iPhone Ringtone:

Ringtone maker:

Ringtone maker

This application supports unlimited number of ringtones, it features fade in and fade out effects and has very user friendly interface. Ringtone Maker is capable of recording any sounds with your iPhone microphone and making it as a ringtone. I tried this option and the quality wasn’t that good to be honest. <Download Ringtone Maker>

Myxer Ringtones:

 

Myxer Ringtones is another great application to easily create and customize ringtones. You can either create music ringtones from the music stored on your iPhone, or you can choose free ringtones from Myxer’s catalog. Catalog contains converted ringtones that were submitted by other members. This is really great feature and you can always check the ringtone in the catalog before converting it on your own. <Link: Myxer ringtones>

Ringtone Maker by Mobile 17:

 

Ringtone Maker Pro from Mobile17 helps you to make your own custom free ringtones and or choose from ringtones generated by other users. Unlike those other apps, Ringtones Maker has no editing restrictions (up to 40 seconds) and also is free. <Link>

Last but not least is iTunes. You probably have already heard from your friends that you can convert your favorite music tracks into ringtones with the help of iTunes. This simple tutorial will guide you through the whole process.

Melofania:

 

Melofania

Although all these ways are extremely easy to follow, I and many others prefer to convert their music into ringtones online. You don’t have to download or install anything, the magic happens straight in your favorite web browser. One of the fastest online ringtones conversion tools is Melofania.com. Ringtone creation process with Melofania is a piece of cake job. You simply upload your favorite track, cut and select the right song piece and the whole process does not take more than 5 minutes.

Audiko:

We have already talked about Audio.net and it not only let you upload audio but you can make iPhone ringtone using Youtube video. Something, I hardly recommend. You can also download created ringtones in .mp3 format.

Hopefully this article will help all iPhone owners to finally stop using those default ringtones Apple offers and convert your favorite music track into ringtone that will be supported for iPhone. Enjoy customizing your ringtones!
