iPod Touch review: An iPad for your pocket

 

Editors' note, October 15, 2012: Updated with final battery life results and screen-testing observations.

The 2012 fifth-generation iPod Touch has an excellent set of features: better front and back cameras, 1080p video recording, iOS 6, and a 4-inch Retina Display just like on the iPhone 5, in a design even thinner than the iPhone.

The iPhone 5 still beats it on performance. The Touch lacks any phone functions, and there are tablet competitors that beat the $299 Touch on price and screen size.

The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.

Apple iPod Touch ( 5th generation, 64GB, blue)

 

Editors' note, October 23, 2012: In addition to the iPod Touch reviewed here, Apple also now sells an iPad Mini with prices starting at $329. It has the same A5 processor as the Touch, but the 7.9-inch screen size is significantly larger.

Apple iPod touch review (2012)

 

It all started with an iPod touch, a gift from my parents years ago. I've since bought a half-dozen more iPods, two iPhones, an iPad, and a MacBook Air. Somehow I'm sure Apple planned it that way. The touch is the entry point into people's worlds, the...

Great display ; Thin, light build ; Hugely improved camera

No good inexpensive option left ; Speaker and earbuds are unimpressive

Part MP3 player, part tablet — part point-and-shoot?

iPod Touch 5th Gen Review

 

Calling previous iPod Touches as iPhones without the phone part is an exaggeration. The iPT5 is more worthy of that statement thanks to its high-quality build, excellent design, amazing display and a very capable camera. With that said it's easy to sum...

Review: iPod touch (5th generation)

 

iPod touch gets 4'' display, thinner build

Extremely thin ; Larger display ; Attractive design ; Improved performance

No light sensor ; Not as fast as iPhone 5 ; Just $30 below iPad mini

The iPod touch now takes a back seat behind the iPhone, but Apple has continued to improve and refine its flagship media player. Arriving two years after its predecessor, the fifth-generation model boasts a thinner build, larger display, faster proce

iPod Touch (5th Generation) Review

 

It's like the iPhone 5 without the phone.

Gorgeous screen, really thin and light, decent cameras

Too expensive, mono speaker

Priced around AED 1,200, the iPod Touch is not an impulse buy. In fact it is a bit on the expensive side considering the iPad mini is out and should officially cost just a 100 Dirhams more when it launches in the region. This makes it very hard for me...

Apple iPod Touch 5G review

 

The new iPod Touch 5G is a huge improvement for those of us who use the camera, compared to the previous iPod Touch 4G .

iPod Touch (5th Gen) Review

 

It's sooooo thin.” As an owner of the 2012 edition of the iPod Touch, you're going to be hearing that a lot. Either from your stunned and impressed friends or possibly even involuntarily from your own mouth. Yes, it's thinner than 5 DVD discs stacked...

In the meantime, if you’re an Android user who secretly wants to partake of the iPhone 5 experience, or an owner of a previous gen iPod Touch, or just someone who wants to own the greatest, thinnest (and reddest?) all-in-one portable music / media...

Although every fifth-generation iPod touch comes with a single, color-matched loop, Apple is also selling the iPod touch loop ($9) as a standalone accessory. Further indicating that Apple's product naming team has an odd disregard for proper...
