The HTC Sensation XL and the HTC Titan do not have a lot in common, still both of them come equipped with 4.7 inch displays sporting the most advanced features at the moment. The HTC Sensation XL runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, while the HTC Titan is a WP Mango device. If you are a fan of big displays, then it makes sense to go through this list of spec comparison to make a final decision considering all the HTC Sensation XL deals and the HTC Titan offers. Let’s say this is some sort of competition between the capabilities of Android and WP Mango operating system solutions of HTC.
The handsets look pretty similar in design. The main exception are the color options, the HTC Titan comes only in black version, while the HTC Sensation XL comes in white. The thickness of the handsets is the same 9.9 mm, but the HTC Titan looks a little more bulky.
The HTC Sensation XL’s another interesting feature are the red highlights coming with the Beats Audio branding.
The HTC Titan runs Windows Phone Mango. This means we should expect multi-tasking, a whole bunch of apps running simultaneously with the possibility of switching in between and colored tile interface. Still let’s not forget that WP Mango is pretty young, thus it doesn’t offer as many interesting apps as Android does.
The most interesting features of the Android OS coming with the HTC Sensation XL are the chance of switching between home screen widgets, Wi-Fi tethering and Flash support. In short, Android brings a lot of freedom with experimenting.
The HTC Titan comes with an 8 megapixel rear camera with a dual-LED flash, an autofocus and geo-tagging and 720p video capturing capabilities. The front-facing camera is 1.3 megapixels.
As for the HTC Sensation XL, it comes with the same 8 megapixel camera and all the listed specs. The front-facing camera is obviously the same too.

Still the internal memory capacity works in favor of the HTC Sensation XL (768 MB, that of the HTC Titan is 512MB).
