Apple iPod Nano review: generation lost
11 March 2013
Excerpt: The new Apple iPod Nano is still a piece of technological marvel, with a thickness of less than 6 mm and no bigger than an over-sized stamp, it's impressive it can do what it does. We do wonder who the intended target audience is for it.
Summary: We synced the iPod, put the brightness and played the music at maximum levels for 5 hours straight until the battery gave up. Of course, not everyone puts their devices at maximum settings. Expect two days of regular use with this device at normal settings.
Summary: The iPod Nano is a technical marvel. It’s a media device and sports aid combo that’s crammed inside a very small, sleek and attractive package. I still can’t get over how I can fit the Nano inside my wallet’s card slot. The asking price of Php 8,290 may seem a bit expensive considering a brand new 8 GB iPod Touch (4th generation) can be had for just a little more money.
Review: iPod nano (7th generation) combines the best of its predecessors
15 October 2012
Excerpt: (1 items) Along with a new iPhone and a new iPod touch, September’s Apple event brought with it a new iPod nano, the first in two years. (2011 saw a notable software update for the 2010 model , but no new hardware.) As has been the case with so many iPod nano models over the years , the iPod nano (7th generation) is a dramatic re-imagining of Apple’s most-popular traditional iPod.
Pros: Larger screen makes Multi-Touch much more usable than with previous model, Physical playback and Home buttons, More-iOS-like interface, Regains video playback of older models, Exceptionally thin and light
Cons: Only $50 less than entry-level iPod touch, Screen isn't as good as those on other Apple devices, Some users will miss previous model's built-in clip
Excerpt: , but also already was able to tes the new iPod nano that is supposed to ship later this month. The new iPod nano is a drastically different product than its predecessor. The new iPod nano 7G is basically a small iPod touch, but still runs its own custom iOS. As before the new iPod nano comes in several different colors. Judging from the review video the iPod nano is pretty snappy.
Summary: The seventh-generation iPod Nano is an incredibly compact portable media player with gym-friendly features, but it's overshadowed by the superior value of Apple's iPod Shuffle and fourth-generation iPod Touch.
Pros: New home button and longer screen offer a familiar smartphone-style interface, Bluetooth compatibility opens up access to wireless audio accessories
Cons: Screen resolution is mediocre, No integrated headphone remote, Lacks the camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock, Lightning port breaks compatibility with existing iPod speakers and accessories
Excerpt: Apple has announced its seventh-generation iPod nano. Our UK counterparts got their hands on a display model for a short period after its launch, providing their initial thoughts. We will provide a detailled review when we receive the device.
Pros: Plays video in widescreen; small; colours will appeal to some
Conclusion: The 2012 iPod nano 7th generation doesn't have the chops to make the same impact as a new iPod touch or iPhone 5. Its screen isn't great in some respects, it's a bit expensive and it doesn't do all that much. However, it's so much of a joy to use on a day-to-day basis that we can learn to accept most of its limitations. Strong design and Apple's excellent UI are enough to mitigate this partly underwhelming redesign.
Pros: Slim body, Responsive touchscreen, Easy to use interface
Cons: A bit expensive, Fairly low screen res, Limited features
Conclusion: Once again, Apple does play up to the niche market – like the iPod Touch , the Nano does have very specific functions for specific uses. While there aren’t many high-end portable music players on the market, the 7th generation Nano is a clear step ahead of its predecessors in terms of design, ergonomics and performance.
Pros: Intuitive and lovely to use, sleek and attractive design, clear and colourful picture, sound quality is a step above previous generation
Cons: Small screen isn’t ideal for watching videos, finger-marks on screen
