This is a review for the 4th Gen iPod touch.
This is my second iPod 4G the first one took a bath (they don't like water).
From the first day this little machine landed in my paw it became an essential part of my life - so much so that I stopped writing up my daily diary and started using the notes facility. The calendar facility is also excellent
If you have never owned or used an Apple product before - stand by to be amazed - this is a very versatile and powerful device like nothing youve had before, and is certainly value for money.
With front and back cameras, an HD video facility, and touch screen - I defy anyone to be disappointed! From YouTube to Google to BBC News to ITV player this is a great entertainment and essential information provider. Access to iTunes and the App Store are essential and easy to do. You can also use a WiFi printer direct.
To fully appreciate the iPod you will need a WiFi modem and a back up PC or laptop, I use an iMAC which enables the two to talk to each other! Also a GOOD, Strong case will help to prevent damage from accidental drops. If you are thinking of buying a dock to plug into, do make sure it has a good sound quality not the usual "tinny" reproduction I have heard too often in so called leading retailers. The output from the iPod is too good to be spoiled by poor reproduction.
Remember the unit will not perform well if dropped, immersed in water(including rain), or handled roughly.
I got my best price from AMAZON, the Pod arrived 3 days early and in perfect condition - what more can I say?

Why didn't Apple bring the 16GB out earlier? Excellent for the price for what i wanted to spend on my 11 yr old boy for his birthday as the 32GB is quite alot more money. I think there will be more than enough memory for songs etc for what my son will use it for.

OK after all this discussion I thought I would try and add what I feel is a bit of clarity to the whole situation regarding which generation this is! This is a last generation model (i.e. 4th generation as opposed to the most recent 5g model). However where the confusion has arisen is that when apple released the 5g ipod touch they carried on selling the 4g ipod touch, but also changed the data storage size of the 4g models! So these are new ipods in the sense that prior to Sept 2012 there was no 16gb ipod touch 4g (only 8gb, 32gb and 64b models), but old in the sense that the hardware is not the latest version. Hope this helps clarify things for people! (Did not help that for a long period of time amazon have had incorrect product info on their pages!)

With regards the actual ipod touch I am very pleased with it. Very good value for me as the 32gb and 64gb 5th gen ipods are too big and too expensive for what I need! Comparing it to my old ipod touch which finally gave up after 5 years heavy use it is much faster with regards browsing through music and using apps. Otherwise it is the same old ease of use, quality of music and general aesthetically pleasing mp3 player that everyone knows and loves! I do have the slight misgiving that apple are so blatant with their money making schemes i.e. purposefully not creating a 16gb 5th generation model so that people who want the latest gadget have to unnecesarily spend more money for extra data they do not need. This is something apple do with all their products though and does not take away from the fact that this is an excellent piece of kit!

I wanted an PIod Touch as my current IPod is very dated and started to show signs of wear and tear. Not having that big of a budget I chose the 4th Generation, The product arrived on time and very well packaged, it came with the USB connector and Apple earphones, also in good condition. I have been using the IPod for nearly 2 weeks and as of yet I haven't had any issues at all, I also found that my phone charger (ANDROID) is compatible with my IPod and will charge it, however the dated docking station I have is not compatible to charge the IPod. I am now ordering a case and sock for the IPod, and overall I am very happy with it.

I love it! It is really amazing- and fast as well! Although sometimes there isn't a great connection to wi-fi, and the quality on the camera isn't as good as an Iphone. But, it is really amazing- the sound quality is amazing, and it is big enough to watch movies on, but at the same time fit in my pocket, which is another amazing quality. Shoutout to my mum and dad for giving it to me for christmas- best present ever! I love you guys! (oh and I would definitely 100% recommend it, it has literally changed my life- for the good. so, if you're thinking about buying it- well, don't think. JUST BUY IT!!) :)

The sound quality and interface are tremendous. I use this iPod every day and only have to recharge weekly. I cannot fault it.

Just what I wanted. It is slim, lightweight, great quality sound. I have had older ipods but this is by far the best.

I owned the Ipod Touch 3rd Generation 32gb for four years until the battery failed with old age and over use! Having been really impressed with the Ipod Touch, I decided to have a newer model.

I decided that i didnt need a 32gb model any more as the capacity seemed to be too much for me and the old one was never full with hours of films and TV and music. I'd only had the 32gb model before as I thought 8gb would be too small to take advantage of the apps etc.

When Apple re-introduced the 16gb Ipod Touch, I decided to upgrade and I have found the capacity enough for my needs and you can get a good range of apps, music and video on there. The 4th Gen is a good upgrade on the older models. The retina screen is pin sharp and the processor is much faster. It is nice having a camera for silly pictures, but it could do with a flash. The video is much better too. I am pleased with the new iOS and app store but wish you could delete passbook and other unused apps. Many of these are more useful for iphone owners and would give you more space to use as ios now takes up 3gb.

The sound quality and build is as good as ever and some great new features too!
