iPod nano review (2012)

 

If you think Apple is getting a little predictable with its yearly device refreshes, you probably haven't been charting the progress of its iPod nano.

Incredibly tiny and light ; Aluminum case feels solid, durable ; 16:9 display and video playback ; Integrated Nike+ functionality

No camera ; Expensive

Apple's latest iPod nano marks another re-design for the company's littlest player, but still it brings more to the table than any previous iteration.

Apple iPod Nano falls short in the era of the smartphone

 

The Apple iPod Nano has a sleek aluminum design, FM radio, Bluetooth and long battery life.

With no Wi-Fi, you're stuck syncing music via USB from a PC or Mac running iTunes. It doesn't work with Apple Music subscriptions, and the low-res screen is tiny.

The iPod Nano is an aging music player that's hurt by its outdated reliance on iTunes and lack of subscription music compatibility.

Apple iPod nano (2012)

 

With its latest model, Apple has finally fixed the iPod nano. The 5th- and 6th-generation MP3 players were a radical rethink that didn't work all that well; Apple tossed the click wheel design that the first four nano generations used, and replaced it...

Very thin and light, yet sturdy. Larger, more responsive touch screen than before. Bundled EarPods are much improved. Finally supports wireless stereo Bluetooth streaming. Includes a pedometer and Fitness app. Stellar battery life

Still no video recording. No in-line playback controls. Not natively compatible with existing accessories, thanks to the new Lightning Connector

Apple puts the iPod nano back on track with its latest version, which sports a sweet new design, a larger touch screen, video playback capabilities, and more.

Apple iPod nano review (2012)

 

Here's the thing: you can't really write a review of the new iPod nano. What is there to say? It is a small slab of aluminum with a multitouch screen that plays music files exactly as well as every...

Extremely small ; Fast and simple to use ; Adds Bluetooth support

Requires syncing with iTunes ; No support for iTunes in the Cloud or other streaming services

Most people should spend the extra $50 on the iPod touch

iPod Nano review: Being small isn't enough

 

With a revamped design and new features, Apple's seventh-generation iPod Nano sits squarely in the middle of the iPod family. But can this tiny but pricey media player distinguish itself in the shadow of the iPod Touch?

The ; new home button and longer screen offer a familiar smartphone-style interface, and the added Bluetooth compatibility opens the device up to a number of wireless audio accessories.

The screen resolution is mediocre, there's no integrated headphone remote, and it still lacks the camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock that Apple cut from the Nano last year. And let's not forget that...

The seventh-generation iPod Nano is an incredibly compact portable media player with gym-friendly features, but it's overshadowed by the superior value of Apple's iPod Shuffle and fourth-generation iPod Touch.

Apple iPod nano (7th generation) review

 

In late 2012, Apple introduced its new line up of iPod devices, including the new 7th generation iPod nano. Having recently moved from a 1st generation nano to a 6th generation nano, I did not think I would have the opportunity or need for the new...

iPod Nano (2012) 7th Generation review

 

Apple took their sweet time upgrading the iPod family as the 4th Generation iPod Touch and 6th generation iPod Nano basically skipped a year of upgrades. Fortunately, along with the release of the iPhone 5, a whole new family of iPods came with it. As...

The iPod Nano is a technical marvel. It’s a media device and sports aid combo that’s crammed inside a very small, sleek and attractive package. I still can’t get over how I can fit the Nano inside my wallet’s card slot. The asking price of Php 8,290...

Despite small resolution improvements, screen quality is mediocre by comparison with other screened iPods and iPhones, and multi-touch functionality is extremely limited. Apart from Bluetooth support, most features were executed just as well if not...

While our review of the seventh-generation iPod nano remains objective throughout, and compares the new device quite factually to its last two predecessors, there’s no question that none of our editors could get excited about the new design. It’s...
