The HTC Titan II smartphone is like that annoying friend who’s good at everything. The 4.7-inch touchscreen appears bigger and brighter than the iPhone’s, and the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system is as intuitive as Apple’s—and better than Droid. Bonus: the Titan II’s 16-megapixel camera has twice the resolution of the next closest smartphone cam. It also packs a wider lens and shoots clearly in low light. Plus, AT&T’s 4G network is screamingly fast, so video streams without interruption. QUIRKS+CONCERNS: Microsoft has one-tenth the apps Apple does. Big is also bulky—not quite Gordon Gekko bulky, but close.
