Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Apple iPod touch (5th Generation) NEWEST MODEL. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.60 stars, and the price range is $224.99-$399.00.

The new Apple iPod touch (5th Generation) features a 6 mm ultra-thin and light anodized aluminum design. The brilliant 4-inch Retina display is tall but not wide, and features an advanced finger-friendly Multi-Touch technology built into the glass instead of beneath it which gives complete one hand control. A 5 megapixel iSight camera (available only in 32 GB & 64 GB versions) is made from sapphire crystal making the surface of the lens more resistant to scratches. Advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash, and face detection helps in getting a better shot every time. The iSight camera shoots 1080p HD video, and the front-facing 1.2 megapixel FaceTime HD camera makes video calls (available in all 3 versions). The front camera can be used for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD videos. Use the Panorama feature to create a perfect wide shot with the tap of a button.

The dual-core A5 chip provides twice the processing power and seven times faster graphics than the previous generation. As the A5 chip is not a power hog, it gives great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge. And with iOS 6 which is considered the world’s most advanced mobile operating system get Siri - the intelligent assistant, iMessage, iTunes, Facebook integration, Game Center, Apple designed Maps, Shared Photo Streams, Passbook, Wi-Fi and more. The iPod touch comes with all new smaller reversible lightning connector, colorful loop to keep the device handy and safe (for 32 & 64 GB) and ear pods newly designed in earbud-style for perfect fit and sound.

However, iPod touch 16 GB does not have a rear iSight camera which seemed to be a major disappointment among users.

Overall, the new Apple iPod touch does the gaming, surfing, messaging and everything else more powerfully than ever and has multiple vibrant and attractive color choices. Additionally, it is free of toxic materials like brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which helps contain environmental footprint and is backed with 1 year limited warranty, extendable to 2 years with the AppleCare Protection Plan.

Specifications:

  • Dimension: 4.86”H x 2.31”W x 0.24”D
  • Weight: 3.04 ounces (16GB) and 3.10 ounces (32GB & 64GB)
