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
Conclusion: Every time Apple releases a new iPod nano, some people rush to declare it the “best nano ever,” while others mourn the loss of some feature, and still others are indifferent to whatever’s been done—the nano remains a decidedly mid-range model, and changes to the more popular iPod touch and iPhone now affect far more people, moving their product families forward in ways that the nano does not.
Pros: A return to the tall and thin form factor that was most popular in past iPod nanos, including eight different color options, the first 2.5” screen on an iPod nano, and a touchscreen interface. The first nano to include Bluetooth, with excellent wireless range, audio and limited non-audio accessory compatibility, and support for new Bluetooth 4 devices. Once again capable of playing videos and usefully rendering photos on its display, with small audio and radio improve...
Cons: Despite small resolution improvements, screen quality is mediocre by comparison with other screened iPods and iPhones, and multi-touch functionality is extremely limited. Apart from Bluetooth support, most features were executed just as well if not better in 2009 fifth-generation model; battery life for video playback is now markedly lower. Loses prior watch-ready size and shape that were popular with some users, as well as many clock faces, while omitting a number of...
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
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
Review do iPod nano geração 7: o pequeno de performance gigante
25 March 2013
Conclusion: O iPod nano de geração 7 é um excelente mp3 player para qualquer usuário. Com um sistema rápido, ótimo volume e design impecável, seus defeitos estão em grande parte nos detalhes. No entanto, sua bateria deixa a desejar, e a ausência de conexão Wi-Fi e de uma câmera deixa o iOS 6 um pouco decepcionante no aparelho. Porém, mesmo com todas as qualidades inegáveis, seu preço é bem alto para um reprodutor de músicas portátil: R$ 749.
Pros: Bonito, Leve, Ótima tela, Bom volume
Cons: Bateria ruim, Ausência de Wi-Fi, Muito pequeno
Conclusion: Il nuovissimo Apple iPod Nano 7G è stupendo, funzionale, elegante, piccolo e sottile ed incorpora funzioni tecnologiche di avanguardia ed estremamente utili come l'assistente Fitness personale che utilizza l'accelerometro incorporato nel lettore per monitorare il nostro allenamento (l'iPod va ovviamente attaccato all'indumento attraverso la clip per il corretto utilizzo dell'accelerometro).
Pros: Colori disponibili; VoiceOver; Funzioni Fitness; Risolzuione Display
