iPod Touch 5th Gen Review
28 November 2012
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.
Conclusion: Priced around AED 1,200, the iPod Touch is not an impulse buy. In fact it is a bit on the expensive side considering the iPad mini is out and should officially cost just a 100 Dirhams more when it launches in the region. This makes it very hard for me to recommend the iPod Touch. Yes, it is more portable and offers more storage than the mini at the AED 1,200 price level and if that is what you’re looking for then it would serve you well.
