Thinner than iPhone 5 and yet still retains the same 4-inch retina display. A big improvement over the last model and with many new enhancements and newer technology in this model. many of the features such as camera, wifi, and battery life has been improved.Well worth the price considering the improvements. Now uses lighting cables which are smaller and easier to use. Cable fits in any way you put it in. No more guessing which is up or down.I am a bit dissapointed in the camera quality as we are now accustomed to expect HDR quality like we now have on our current smartphones. Also, wall charger is not included. Only the USB lightning cable. Otherwise, its a fantastic product.

            It's about time I got with the ease of the iPad. I hesitated, thinking there would be a big learning curve. But no, it was all so intuitive. I wish I had gotten this sooner. Especially at the low B&H price.

            Comments about 16GB iPod touch (White & Silver) (5th Generation):

            This iPod is an excellent choice for a smart device with endless capabilities due to the number of available applications. The 16GB capacity is more than enough. I really recommend it over any other device of its kind.

              It has been great for reminders and notes about various bible studies. The e-sword app has been a great aid for daily devotions. I also am planning on traveling to Europe this year, and keeping my flight and reservation info is made simple with with apps that are available for free. I also downloaded some language apps and wow the help that this will offer just amplifies my visions and interests. I am glad i decided to get this. It has a sleek design, the space gray color is nice, the camera is great, and the audio is really nice as well.

                We bought this for our 11 y/o daughter for Christmas! She is in love with it! She can play her music, stay in contact with her friends, look information up on the internet for school, and play games! The battery has amazing life quality! The picture quality is great for an iPod! We couldn't be happier with our purchase!
