    Just picked up the titan one the penny sale. Right now I'm getting it ready, I will use it for a couple of days and compare it to my galaxy s2. For a penny there is nothing to lose. Will report back.

    Good luck with it. Please do report back about your usage of the Titan including call audio quality (both ways).

    Wish I had known about the store policy to match the online price. My Titan shipped tonight whereas I could have picked one up on Friday when I placed the order. Oh well.

    Welcome to the Titan family. Love it. Agree with neftv. Would love to know how the call quality is. Fortunately, I don't make many calls. I hear everything well and clear but have had complaints on the receiving end.

    Yes, please report back on sound quality. Both of the titans I had l, had horrible sound quality. Would be nice to know if they finally release handsets that resolved the call quality issues. Also, that's awesome that they price matched.

    Got mine yesterday. Sucks that if you order online, the 3 day window of the activation fee sticking starts the day you order. So, today is officially day 3 for me. If I decide I don't like, I'm stuck unless I return it today.

    So far, LOVE the interface. Very smooth and responsive. A little disappointed on the lack of apps, but I'm sure that will grow in time. I guess I was just trying to download as many of the same apps that I have on my Droid Bionic as a comparison.

    Where I'm located in central Florida (Orlando) is listed as an HSPA+ network, but I gotta be honest that even when in downtown O-Town, 2.1 MB down is really disappointing when things are near instant on my Bionic. I'm spoiled, I'm not gonna lie.

    I need the Titan on an LTE network and I think I'd be extremely happy. However, I'm going to continue to evaluate since today is my first full day with it.

    Eager to hear about the sound quality issue too. Regardless I hope that it is a non issue with the Titan II.

    Tampa/St. Pete/Bradenton/Sarasota just recieved LTE two weeks ago. Thank you RNC!

    Hopefully I will be accessing those blazing speeds by Sunday.

    I got a Titan in November. I love the phone. The sound quality issue is starting to become more of a problem. I don't have it as much when on speaker phone but experience it a lot when off speaker phone. I wonder if getting a blue tooth ear piece would bypass the issue altogether. If not, I ma have to replace which is going to hurt because I am on contract. However, not being heard defeats the purpose of having a phone. I would wait for Apollo devices before doing that. This will make nw think twice before buying another HTC phone.

    I haven't had any trouble with sound quality. I must say that almost all of my calls today have been using the Bluetooth on my car.
    Battery life was better with the normal use that I make I got 9 hours, before getting the low battery warning.

    How about making a test call with someone using phone directly no bluetooth?
    How does the caller sound when you put the phone to ear and how do they say you sound in clarity and quality?

    Made a couple of calls without the bluetooth. One was about 15 min long and the other ones between 5-8. I would asked them if they had any problems hearing me clearly and always was told that they had no problems. I purposefully went to some areas that I knew with signal problems but the call held well. Testing continues.

    Opened up my Titan an hour or so ago. One of the first things I did was call my wife. She said my voice was a little muffled. It was nothing serious, about what you expect for some calls on a cell phone. Her voice came through great. Still getting used to the wide screen and new OS.

    I was told at the att store that if you bought it online you have one chance to change the phone or cancel the contract, without the restocking fee.
    I'm in a hspa+ area too, the fastest that I've seen is about 4 MB down.

    While I hardly ever use Twitter, I know the app that was talked about is Carbon. It's $2 at the moment, but you can always try it for free for a while to see if you like it enough to spend that much.

    I never said it was lte. I was saying that it would be a much more attractive device if it was an lte device.

    I'd kill for that at least once in a while when I'm away from home.
