Apple iPod touch 5G: Review & Specs

Today we have brought the complete review of Apple iPod touch 5G which will guide you through its performance, test, pros, cons and its features.

On 5 September 2007, Apple introduced the first generation of the iPod touch, a music player that broke everything known until then as well as play MP3s and other audio, thanks to its Multi-Touch Screen Color 3.5 inches allowed us to view photos, play videos, surf the internet and, above all, make use of the thousands of apps and games from the App Store, making it one of the portable games consoles in the most successful in history.

The first three generations served to introduce slight changes in the characteristics of the iPod touch, all interesting but not revolutionary. It was the fourth generation, launched in September 2010, which changed the quality of the screen (became Retina Display), added a three-axis gyroscope, given the option of choosing the traditional white iPod touch in addition to black and introduced for the first time a rear camera (the principal) 720p video at 30 frames per second (fps) and a front with VGA-quality photos and video at 30 fps.

If we talk about the all new Apple iPod touch 5G, this case includes a USB cable connector Lightning, strap to fit the screw at the rear, the new headphones EarPods (this time in case of cork, not hard plastic like the iPhone 5), a Quick guide and, of course, the iPod touch.

Well, the Apple iPod touch 5G was introduced last September 12, 2012, has turned to the history of the MP3 player. It can be considered that the iPod touch 5G is a direct descendant of the iPhone 5, with which it shares high as important as the size of your screen, which is now a 4-inch Retina Display, while it is still much thinner and weighs less.

Feel of iPod touch 5G:

Perhaps one of the more striking when you hold in your hands for the first time an iPod touch 5G is its lightness. And for the record that not only happens to me, everyone who let the new iPod touch, the first thing he says is: “how thin and how much little weight”. Its thickness is a mere 0.61 cm and weighs 88 grams (112 grams weight for the iPhone 5).

The new screen 4-inch Retina Display is, without doubt, the star of the iPod touch 5G.

Another coincidence with the iPhone 5 (also with mini iPad) is carved bezel and the back is anodized aluminium, this time available in six vibrant colors: black / graphite black / silver, pink, yellow, blue and Red.

Regarding its new screen that is the same as the iPhone 5, a wide panel of 4-inch (diagonal) with IPS technology Multi-Touch with resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels at 326 dpi and oleophobic anti-fingerprint coated, i.e. whole “Retina Display”.

And along with the great innovations, we cannot forget your camera, very similar to the iPhone 5 but with 5-megapixel sensor instead of 8 megapixels. This demonstrates the quality iSight camera outdoors, night shots and failure “covers record” indoors, substantially improving the iPhone 4 although very similar, although the latter does not have the new hybrid IR filter which is present on the iPhone 5.

The rear camera (iSight) protrudes slightly from the housing. 5 megapixels of Apple iPod touch 5G is characterized by the following features: auto focus, tap to focus on video and photos, backlit hybrid infrared filter, five-element lens, LED flash, opening ƒ / 2.4, face detection, photo panoramic, HDR and 1080p video recording at up to 30 frames per second with audio. The front camera (FaceTime) is 1.2 megapixels and 720p video recording at 30 fps.

The new connector Lightning, which replaces the traditional 30-pins is present in the new device.

Conclusion for iPod touch 5G:

Undoubtedly, we are facing the best iPod touch ever. I cannot believe Apple can make it even better in sixth generation, but surely something will happen. It has everything: a lot of quality and screen size for watching videos and enjoy the most addictive games, a camera that excels in exterior illuminated and even indoors with artificial light, but click on night shots, a built-in battery polymer battery that can play up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video, and finished with six different colors and anodized aluminium housing that impacts.
As we know the model 32GB is sold for 319 euros and the 64 Gbytes of capacity by 429 euros. Amounts are important especially now that the economy of families bypasses the best. However, it would be unfair for us not to give the tag of “Recommended Product” to Apple iPod touch 5G.
