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?

Apple iPod touch (Fifth-Generation)

 

Apple has painted the iPod family into a corner. Having put its best resources into developing ever-improving iPhones and iPads, the company now routinely saves its most exciting new features for its phones and tablets, trickling them down to iPods...

A substantially redesigned and much-improved version of the prior iPod touch, enhancing everything from screen quality to battery life and audio performance. In 32GB and 64GB models, both front and rear cameras are particularly big jumps over prior,...

Despite two-year gap since prior model’s release, most of the new features are a full step behind leading iPhone and iPad models, cementing the new iPod touch as a smaller, better-screened remake of the iPhone 4S rather than as an iPod that separately...

In recent years, Apple hasn’t been plagued much by the “right device, wrong price” dilemma, as it has tended to replace its best already right-priced devices with new models every year, keeping competitors on their toes while constantly advancing the...

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...

First Looks: Apple iPod touch loop

 

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...

Apple iPod Touch 5th generation review

 

The Apple iPod Touch 5G has arrived at T3 Towers. Is there still a place for Apple's standalone music player? Find out here...

Beautifull designed ; Bigger, bolder display ; High quality cameras

Very pricey ; iOS still problematic

As a device, the Apple iPod Touch 5G is outstanding. There are a few subjective things that may bother people, such as the Touch Loop, and the light body. iOS 6 is also problematic for some – Maps is still an issue, and the Apple ecosystem is still...
