I really didn't need a new one but wanted the 32 GB. It works really well so far. Haven't had any problems. The battery doesn't seem to last as long as it says but I have only charged it a couple times since receiving it. Time will tell on that but it does work well. I inserted a 128 GB mini sd card and works great, just like it should. The blue color is really pretty and a little different than the 7th generation I have. The thing I like the most is the 32 GB instead of the 16. Nice upgrade.
