Above the screen there is a secondary camera, a light and proximity sensor. Under the screen there are the well known WP7 controls buttons: back, home and search. All of them are touch sensitive. On the right side it has the volume rocker keys and the dedicated camera button. On the left side it has only the microUSB port. At the top of the phone we find the power button, the 3.5mm jack (the phone has Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement) and a secondary microphone for active noise cancellation.

The S-LCD display has 4.7 inches and supports multitouch. It has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and a pixels density of 199ppi. The display has proper colors but in sun light conditions you don’t need to make too many hopes. The phone measures 131.5 x 70.7 x 9.9mm and weighs 160 grams.

The WP 7.5 Mango powers the Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset. On the chipset is based the Scorpion processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and the Adreno 205 GPU. The amount of RAM memory is 512 Mb. The internal storage has 16 GB and it can’t be expanded with any kind of card. The phone has gyro, accelerometer, compass, light and proximity sensors.

The Titan has an 8 MP camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash. Video recording is made at 720p and 30 fps. The secondary camera has 1.3 MP. The features that the camera has are: saturation, sharpness, geo-tagging, ISO, face detection, metering and others. The camera button wakes the phone with only one press. Pictures made in dark are noisy with decent details. Even in good light conditions the noise level is too aggressive.

At connectivity it has Wi-Fi with b/g/n standards, DLNA, HSDPA up to 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP + EDR and a microUSB 2.0 slot. The browser doesn’t have Adobe Flash support but it handles very well.

The battery has 1600 mAh and can keep the phone in standby for 460 hours and in talk time for 11 hours and 50 minutes. Overall the Titan can stay alive for about one day and a half of moderate use.
