    I have saved up about half the money for it so far. I wish they had it in white though.

    With this HTC LCD screen bait and switch ordeal, I am a little afraid that AT&T's spec device will use something less good than the SLCD I've seen in reviews. It is a lot more expensive than the Focus S compared to the international Titan. But for the same $199, would AT&T order a cheaper version of the phone? Please tell me I'm wrong.

    The Android variant of this phone has the same SLCD, it appears if that means anything.

    They appear to enjoy producing, say, replacement phones with a screen of inferior quality compared to the phone at release. I have not personally experienced this but I think others who have can chime in to validate.

    So what I was worried about is a little extension of that. I was thinking of ordering the Titan on day 1 and I guess I could easily find out myself in 30 days. Or I could wait for reviews...I just wanted to know if people think it would even be possible for AT&T to order Titans with cheaper screens than the international version. I'm not trying to talk myself out of it, but I want to avoid disappointment.

    Are you referring to the AMOLED shortage that forced HTC to switch to SLCD last year?

    Yes apparently they're at it again for some of their devices, like the HD7s.

    If that's all it is (and I'm not exactly sure it is) then I'm not worried at all. Basically I like what I see about the Titan's screen in all reviews. Actually, I'd be mad not only if they switched to an inferior LCD, but even to Super AMOLED plus!

    Full disclosure: a thread over at XDA, "Caution! HTC Radar is going to use back the UGLY TFT monitor again"

    Hopefully it's a big misunderstanding and there's nothing to worry about.

    Well, I know the Sensation (just plain Sensation), despite being market has a S-LCD (obstinately claimed under the same name in several HTC press releases) from Sony, has Sharp and AUO as it's only two panel suppliers.... something that's well covered on the XDA forums (rather sizeable thread, too).

    Very impressed if HTC was able to swap a SLCD into an AMOLED chassis. I would have thought the two screens were just just plug and play interchangeable. Or did they just stop making the AMOLED phones and started a new series of phones with LCD?

    I thought the HD7 had an LCD display not an AMOLED.

    As far as I know, there is no shortage of SLCD panels.

    Buttons are now very nice & well set into the top & side of the device. I've had the Titan since beginning of October & can't praise performance & build quality enough.

    Reading some threads over at XDA which make the phone sound even buggier than the Focus S...is it possible AT&T will work with HTC to sort out issues before release on their network?

    Just to summarize a few from the Titan forum over at XDA:
    Callers can't hear you half the time
    After loaded a certain amount (or certain) of apps, the phone becomes laggy playing video/games
    WiFi connection integrity issues

    They've already got a hold of some official (but unreleased) service center rom and they're talking about flashing it in and if it fixed certain bugs. That just gave me flashbacks to the current WinMo phone that I use, and used to flash monthly.

    I want to switch to WP7 for smooth, bug-free operation. Not an experience like WinMo or Android.

    I'm not totally dissuaded but I am keeping on eye on issues at the same time.

    Have to keep in mind the Titan has been out longer than the Focus S (in my mind, the only real competitor) and to an international user base, at that. So I need to take that into consideration.

    That's why I am hopeful that AT&T will at least make sure the phone is bug-free for their user base. I have no idea if this is something they care about, or if they only do network validation testing.

    iOS5 is having major wifi problems too according to a lot of users.

    XDA is a dev site right? Are all these problems on Dev unlocked phones or retail locked carrier versions? Just seems weird that the number of apps would cause problems with speed in a running app. No idea why the phone would not work as a phone 100% of the time though. That is a major problem if its not carrier related.

    Hopefully the issues being based are not hardware related and can be fixed with firmware and / or OS updates.

    It's still working better for me than iOS 3.1.3, lol! That sucker on my old iPod touch 1g consistantly (read: whenever I actually wanted to use it) failed to connect to my hidden SSID network. :(

    Yup, I hear you. After playing with the Focus S I just wasn't inspired the way I thought I might be. I think the Titan is my device, I just need to make sure I'm not going to be fighting bugs for the first 6 months.
