iPod touch 4S

JulianGT has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

It has a gorgeous design and build quality. Display is so-so. The processor is showing its age and I don't know why apple didn't equipped it with the A6 for future-proofing. With iOS 7 it lags if the animations and transparency are turned on.

Build quality 10/10 Beautiful design
Reception 10/10 not a phone
Call quality 10/10 not a phone
Internet 9/10 Its antenna is not strong enough.
Multimedia 9/10 Display is small for movies and shoeing pictures to other people.
Camera 8/10 Average quality
UI speed 8/10 iOS 7 slowed it down a lot!
Everyday usage 9/10
Text input 8/10 Small display, small keyboard
Display 8/10 Good PPI but very small and low resolution for 2012 (and 2013)
Battery 9/10 It lasts a day with a lot of usage.

Pros

  • Good app count

Cons

  • Display

Everyday usage 8/10 very good experience
Text input 7/10 keyboard is a bit small
Display 7/10 display is too small and when i look close enough i can see some pixelation

iPod touch 5th generation Review

jordanlnk has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

The new iPod touch is far superior to my previous iPod touch 4th generation. It has a way better camera, 5 MP. The build quality is better on this iPod because the back is not mirrored, which caused a lot of scratches and fingerprints. It also comes in cool colors, which is a fun feature. The UI Speed is speedier and faster on the new A5 processor, which is new to the iPod touch. It comes in 32/64GB variants, as well as a dedicated 16GB variant. I would definitely recommend this

Best iPod touch yet.

ymcmb has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I've had second generation iPod touch, I can say this generation is so much better even compared with the fourth generation. It's thin body makes it the thinnest iTouch. IPS display is also an edge. Feels like you already owned an iPhone 5 without the 3g capabilities tho.

Build quality 10/10 Solid build unlike any iPod Touch in the previous generations.
Reception 9/10
Call quality 9/10
Internet 8/10 I use Chrome
Multimedia 10/10 Rich audio codecs. Videos are great too.
Camera 9/10 Superb camera. comparable to iPhone 4
UI speed 8/10 An ovarhauled design would be great in the iOs 7 update.
Everyday usage 9/10
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10 Brilliant retina display.
Battery 9/10 Superb 1030 mAh Battery

Pros

  • Multimedia powerhouse
  • Memory Capacity(32gb for base model)
  • Available in different colors

Cons

  • iPhone is still better
  • Loop is pretty much useless if you use cases

solid product

andrewl15 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I've had previous iOS devices, and this is better than the iPhone 4S. It's snappier, has a commendable retina display (although underwhelming in size), and is comparable in several respects to the iPhone 5.

Build quality 10/10 screen could be set in more to the frame, though if you're like me and get a case, you'll be fine. Unique design.
Reception 7/10 for a device like this, it doesn't get bad wifi reception at all.
Call quality 8/10 Facetime and other calls made in free calling apps sound great.
Internet 7/10
Multimedia 10/10 intended for multimedia, right?
Camera 8/10
UI speed 10/10 even if you don't like apple (ahem other reviewer), you have to admit that ios is an extremely smooth experience.
Everyday usage 9/10
Text input 8/10
Display 8/10 a little small compared to the market.
Battery 7/10

Pros

  • exceptional build quality
  • reasonably fluid graphics
  • snappy UI
  • can hold all of my 450+ apps without a hiccup
  • Unique design
  • good for everyday usage
  • much more capacity per $

Cons

  • amount of RAM is underwhelming
  • Would've been nice to have gotten an A5X chip
  • small(ish) screen size
