Top Customer Reviews
FORM FACTOR - The Touch is thinner than iPhone 5 though still has the same 4-inch retina display. The overall experience is significantly better using this device compared to the Touch 4. I was pretty happy with my Touch 4, but now looking at it after playing with the Touch 5, it just seems small! The 5 is thinner and lighter than even the iPhone 5. Very slick.
BODY - The back is anodized aluminum finish in amazing colors. The matte finish makes it less scratch-prone (at least so far it seems that way) compared to the steel-backed Touch 4. The body is slightly more rectangular and less curved than the 4, making it easier to use the side volume buttons. I honestly don't think a case is necessary for this device given its beautiful colors and fairly scratch-resistant body, but that again would be entirely a personal decision. Some folks are prone to dropping devices in which case a case is a must. My 2 cents - a transparent case would probably be best which at least allows the beauty of the device to come through. Putting on a thick black case on this would be doing it severe injustice!
CAMERA - The camera is in my opinion one of the best features of the Touch. The Touch has a 5MP camera, which I think is the same as the iPhone though I could be wrong on this. It gives 1080p recording in this slick device, makes me think back of the loaded camcorders we carried and converted tapes to DVDs, and that wasn't so long ago!Read more ›
The 5G is definitely lighter than the 4G. The steel back of the previous model feels archaic compared to the sleek aluminum casing on the 5G. The extra 1/2" of screen real estate does not sound like much, but being the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S2 I'm accustomed to using a larger screen and I can say that the 4G iPod Touch's screen was definitely too small. The 5G seems about right, not too big or small. It can be used for one handed operation in portrait mode.
The retina screen is better than the 4G Touch which would suffer from yellow discoloration when viewed off angle. The 5G Touch screen does suffer when viewed off angle, but just becomes dimmer and the color does not lose integrity. Looking at other reviews I've noticed others have complained about a yellow tint but I have not experienced this. I had pre-ordered the Silver model.
The screen actually feels much more responsive and accurate than the 4G. It almost feels like Apple increased the touch sensitivity. Knowing what kind of improvement in technology Apple made, I know that the increase in sensitivity is likely due to improvements in hardware, not software. The layer that receives your touch input is now much closer to the surface, I think this is why the screen feels more responsive.
The camera is much improved over the 4G. I can honestly consider using the 5G iPod Touch as a cheap replacement camera. The functionality has improved as well. iOS 6 offers a foolproof Panorama feature that allows you to take Panoramic pictures.Read more ›
I'm no Apple fanboy, just a gadget fan in general. I retain fandom of a wide range of mobile devices, not just Apple's, but I have to admit, when it comes to non-phone touchscreen media devices, Apple still takes the cake ...and the Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). The handful of iPod touch competition simply cannot compare, even after a two-year hiatus prior to a newer, even more spectacular model.
I'll take you hands-on with the new iPod touch, plus I'll share from my past four years of iPod touch ownership altogether, especially for those who haven't yet owned (or been slave to) this 'vice.
My review tends to run long, so I've organized information by section, with headings, to make it more helpful for those just looking for specific info. I've tried to cater my review towards both those familiar with technology like this, as well as those not too technically savvy, but sometimes tech-speak is unavoidable. If there's anything you don't quite understand, or if there's something you want to know about that I haven't covered, I encourage you to participate in a discussion by asking any questions in the comments for this review.
Finally, in hopes of making this the most helpful iPod touch review on Amazon, I'll also reveal a treasure trove of info on how you can legitimately download tons of quality apps and games for free! (See "Downloading Apps and Games" for details.Read more ›
