Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation): Review

Apple has just unveiled the brand-new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) extremely nice and fun, available in 5 different colors (anthracite gray, red, yellow, blue and white) and at a price in line with its predecessors. The main feature of the new player, in addition to iOS 6 and A5 processor, is a beautiful 4-inch Retina display and a resolution of 1,136×640 pixels and 326 ppi.

Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) also has Siri (thank iOS 6), rear camera iSight 5 MP, LED flash and FaceTime HD camera with a resolution of 1.2 MP and HD video (720p). Rounding out the features of this beautiful MP3 player will find the latest generation of the new iPod Touch Loop (wrist strap coordinated with the color of the device), earphones, USB cable EarPods and the new Lightning.

Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation): Design

The brand-new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) has an extremely slim design, trendy and modern. The reader is characterized by the highest quality materials (aluminum) that give outstanding lightness, and that will be appreciated by many due to the presence of different colors, all fun and modern.

The reader, extremely thin, discusses measures equal to 12.34 x 5.86 x 0.61 cm and a light weight of 88 grams Appendix. Very interesting the insertion of the strap (the so-called iPod Touch Loop) which appears as a choice but reinterpreted retro-style Apple. Overall, the design of this new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) is simply beautiful.

Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation): Features and Functionality

The strength of the brand-new Apple iPod Touch is the wide screen Retina display 4-inch Multi-Touch display with IPS technology and a resolution of 1,136×640 pixels at 326 ppi with a maximum brightness (typical course) of 500 cd/m2 and a oleophobic coating to fingerprint proof: almost the best you could ask for.

The beautiful display would serve no purpose if it were not accompanied by a processor at the level of graphics that we can get with this little gem, and it is for this reason that Apple has seen fit to equip the device with a dual-core A5 chip that achieves graphics up to seven times faster and twice the performance of the previous model of the iPod Touch.

The high-performance processor who allows this is certainly highlighted when using games for iOS6 downloaded directly from the Apple Store. In addition, at least on paper, the new core A5 chip consumes less than their predecessors, and allows a range of up to 40 hours of audio playback or up to 8 hours of video playback on a single charge (about 2 hours quick charge and about 4 hours for full charge).

On the back of the device will find another strong point of the touch, and that is the iSight camera of 5 MP with auto focus, function ” touches and Focus ” for photos and videos, LED flash, and BSI sensor. The camera, as well as having advanced optics, you can also capture HD video at 1080p, and through the front camera, FaceTime video calling enables you to perform better than in the past. In addition, thanks to the panorama function of the camera itself, you can make panoramic images practically perfect.

Obviously, the new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) is not only a media console that allows Internet browsing in WiFi but it is also an audio-video quality. These is also thanks to the brand-new earphones EarPods that allow audio listening unprecedented and with a yield audio record. Connectivity 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi (802.11n 2.4GHz and 5GHz) is joined by the always convenient (and sometimes necessary, especially in the car) Bluetooth 4.0 for the sharing of music and not only.

The new iPod Touch, like all the new Apple device, is equipped with the new connector Lighting double-face which is still compatible with the accessories that you have purchased in the past as long as you buy the appropriate adapter (frankly, I would have preferred to have the adapter supplied in order, and considering the price of the new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation), it was not bad at all).

On the back of the aluminum body will find something that for many is retro, for another news and other useless: I’m talking about the new iPod touch loop strap that allows you to keep your new iPod attached to the wrist in a safe and comfortable enough (of course the strap supplied is coordinated with the color of the iPod).


The new Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) likely become the technological gadgets of the year, if notice is priced too high but also has all the credentials to become a best-seller, just think of the beautiful design and the wide range of available colors’s technical features are excellent, and the audi-video quality is among the best ever seen, especially thanks to the beautiful Retina display wide screen high resolution. Probably, the only flaw after the price, you can do detect in battery life, but as always this defect is subjective.
