Smartphone Madness 2012 Game 8: HTC Titan II vs. Sony Xperia Ion. Voting Ends 3/22 at 9 a.m. EST


In yesterday’s game, we saw the BlackBerry Bold 9900 defeat the by HTC One X by about 70 votes. Today’s matchup, the last of the first round, pits the HTC Titan II against the Sony Xperia Ion? Which will move on to face the Samsung Galaxy Nexus? It’s up to you!

The first Windows Phone with a 16MP camera, the HTC Titan II builds upon the legacy of its older brother, the Titan. As we noted in our hands-on with the Titan II at CES 2012, its 4.7-inch Super LCD 800 x 480-pixel display isn’t the highest resolution, but it comes with a fast 1.5-GHz Snapdragon S2 processor. Also, it will ride on AT&T’s high-speed 4G LTE network. The phone is scheduled to be released on AT&T Wireless later this year.

Competing against the Titan II is another phone with a high megapixel count. The Sony Xperia Ion will have a 12MP camera, and will be the company’s fist LTE phone for AT&T Wireless. Like the Titan, it will also have a 1.5-GHz Snapdragon processor, and while its screen is a slightly smaller 4.6 inches, it will have a higher resolution of  1280 x 720. From what we saw in our hands-on of the Xperia Ion at CES, it has the makings of a serious shooter. The Exmor-R CMOS sensor is the same as on Sony’s compact cameras, and we also like the dedicated camera button, too. 

Vote now for which phone you think is more deserving to move on to the second round. Voting ends on March 22 at 9 a.m.

    This is stupid.

    A windows site was panning for votes. Of course, it’ll be weighted more.

    This is kind of a bad poll… There’s not much of an overview of the phones and even then, it seems kind of biased (hadzry’s comment for one…) Maybe it’s due to the fact that past Sony phones weren’t that good, and that the Titan II has a predecessor and is HTC… Eh. Personally I’m looking at the Ion. And it looks even nicer.
