First let me say this is a Q&A discussion for the iPod Touch 5 Generation. Secondly, all of my answers are unbiased, odd as it may seem, but I only want the best answers for you, and biased answers are not the way you reach a firm decision. Your Questions Answered: Yesterday I made a thread in which the iFans community could request certain aspects of the iPod Touch 5 Generation to be reviewed in specific detail. Here they are and here are the answers. rroach asks: Here is what I have to say. I was not particularly happy, at first, with the feel and design. Not only do I have to hold it a different way, but it is akward holding it with the headphone jack protruding from bottom left of the device. With the earpods plugged in, the jack gets in the way and it's kind of hard to find a suitable holding position. I have, however, gotten used to it and it is no big deal now. I didn't really like the taller feel of the device because it is actually a little more difficult than it looks. This thing is razor thin. I am going to order a case not only for protection, but for giving it a little more bulk. I also felt as if it was hard to hold onto with the smooth aluminum back, which is harder to hold onto than the last generation's polished aluminum back. Not a big deal, I've gotten used to it. These are just some things at first I didn't like. Another thing I don't like. It is difficult at first to plug and unplug the earbuds and the lightning connector. The lightning connector is so small! So basically these are the first things you notice. You get used to them, and now after two days of owning the device it is easier to plug and unplug the earpods and lightning connector into the device. I've learned how to hold it. Honestly, these things aren't a big deal anymore. Nivalwolf asks: I am happy to say, I opened my device in the Store. The Apple employees were cool with it and said it wasn't a big deal and they could replace it on the spot if it was scratched. I am one of those super OCD people about my new things, and I found not a single mark. I suggest that if you are worried about it, buy one in an Apple Store and open it in the store. JailBreakHelp asks: I mainly choose this device because I have invested a lot into the App Store. My investments in music, apps, games, etc. I choose this over another brand because I wanted to get a more modern upgrade of Apple technology. I wanted to have a device that could upgrade to the next software immediately, hence the reason I didn't go with a SGSII. I did pick up the 64GB model, which was $400 without tax. I could have bought an iPad 2 for the same price, but I figured since my iTunes library and my investment into Apps would broaden over the next few years, I might as well have 64GB versus the iPad 2 at the same price with 16GB. I also needed a super mobile device. Hope that answers your question. Ferc Kast asks: I actually sold my dock, but according to a teardown, you will have no problem charging it and playing music at the same time. It still offers the same, basic, functionality of the old 30-Pin dock connector. lilsleepy59 asks: Compared to the 4th Generation iPod Touch, the new built in speaker on the iPod Touch 5 Gen is fabulous. It gets almost as loud as my 2007 Polycarbonate Macbook. (see attached file below). Arth asks: Thanks for bringing that up. Sure it feels cheap, but I did put it through nearly eight hours of use on a trip yesterday and it looks brand new still, it's easy to clean, and it has held up. I don't think there is reason to worry that it will snap in half. If you are concerned you might want to consider waiting for third party iPod Touch loops to get released. I don't think it is very cheap, but it certainly isn't top notch. Say a lowish medium on quality. Decadent asks: The camera, on a scale of 1–10 with 10 being perfect, I would say between 8 and 9. It's primary strength is taking macro photos. It takes great photos, but you need a decent amount of light. I was able to reproduce the purple flare, but it's normal for any camera. Does the iPod feel cheap? Not exactly. While the iPod is incredibly thin and light, it may be it is built superiorly, but it's light wight throws our minds off and make us think it is cheap. I don't think it is in the least bit cheap. Oh, and the home button is great! Cloudy asks: I have owned it for two days. I love it! I quickly came to appreciate it! It is very helpful to have it larger! It looks nothing like the pictures, honestly...it looks better. In pictures it looks like it's two inches taller than it really is. I think it is the best screen ever on an iPod Touch, even compared to my sister's 4Gen. It is like a retanized version of the retina display. It is fabulous! SilverShip asks: For me it doesn't wobble. I know other members have complained about it, but it's not much of a big deal. I don't think you're gonna sit there for hours touching it so it will wobble. I tried all I could, it perhaps did a little, but honestly don't make this a deciding factor in buying the device. 71KR117 asks: What do you need? You can't go wrong buying a Nexus 7, but I must say I wouldn't trade my iPod Touch for a Nexus 7. I went to my Best Buy today to try out a Nexus 7, and I would say it really depends if you have lots of investments in the App Store. I went with the iPod Touch because of my investments in the App Store. iOS6 and Jelly Bean are both fantastic mobile operating systems. Which device would you use to the most potential? Again, I got the $399 64GB, but if you go with the $299 32GB iPod Touch 5G, then I would say buy the iPod Touch. Just my opinion. If you still are undecided, try each device out at Best Buy and an Apple Store. Got More Questions? This thread will remain an iPod TOuch Q&A disscussion!
