Apple iPod Touch (5th Generation) Review
8 August 2013
Summary: 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.
Pros: Modern and elegant design, A5 processor, 4-inch Retina Display, FaceTime HD camera, Siri, iSight Camera 5 MP, 5 different beautiful colors; IPod Touch Loop.
Summary: Calling previous iPod Touches as iPhones without the phone part is an exaggeration. The iPT5 is more worthy of that statement thanks to its high-quality build, excellent design, amazing display and a very capable camera. With that said it’s easy to sum up its capabilities – the 5th generation iPod Touch is the REAL iPhone without the phone functionality.
Summary: The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.
Pros: The 2012 fifth-generation iPod Touch has an excellent set of features: better front and back cameras, 1080p video recording, iOS 6, and a 4-inch Retina Display just like on the iPhone 5, in a design even thinner than the iPhone.
Cons: The iPhone 5 still beats it on performance. The Touch lacks any phone functions, and there are tablet competitors that beat the $299 Touch on price and screen size.

Excerpt: There’s a new iPod touch on the block and, in many of the ways that most matter, it’s a winner.
