    I purchased the 16GB ipod touch to do iOS development work and was pleased that the product mostly met my expected quality level for apple's products. My one complaint may be that it felt slightly lighter and flimsier then I would hope from apple - but not to an unacceptable degree. I'd recommend this product to someone who wanted to use apps and games available through the app store but didn't want an iphone.

    Good iPod but lacking second camera

    Bought this iPod for my 10 year old daughter thinking that I would get her the latest iPod. I figured this was better than the 4th generation iPod touch since it had 8 more gb of disk space. Once I received it, I realized that it only has a camera in the front of the iPod. There is no camera in the back so it is very hard for her to take pictures of things other than herself. I recommend buying the 4th generation 8gb iPod unless you want to shell out the money for the 5th generation 32gb iPod.

          My son absolutely loves his IPod touch! I love it too as an intermediary between a video game system and a cell phone. He can text and email and get apps he wants. However, I set up his account so I keep the password. It's just a good as my iPhone.

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

                Apple mind-bogglingly made early 16GB iPod touches without the rear camera. I inadvertantly purchased a *refurbished* one from @ for $. Return cost me $ plus shipping. B&H had a *new* one for $ so I ordered it...without a camera!!! I explained my problem to B&H and returned it for the $ iPod Touch with camera and it arrived shortly after they received the return and they waived the 0.61 fee to expedite delivery. Big win for B&H..I'll be back.

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

                  I upgraded this from my 4th generation iPod touch. It was stuck on iOS 6 and couldn't load any 3rd party apps.

                  The iPod I had before was 32GB but I don't mind switching down to 16. At this price, you can't complain.

                  It's fast. It's beautiful. And it's running iOS 8.

                  My school has its own app for scheduling each period and I finally can use the iOS 8 version. I'm so happy.

                      For an additional $ you can get one *with* a 5 MP...so if you actually want one without the camera, this is for you.

                        I love the iPod for work and for working out, but now I use it in the car with Bluetooth. Nice to see that the iPod is now basically a iPad-mini mini. It does all of the things that an iPad does basically, including, but not limited to Facetime. The only thing I would like to see changed on the new version is similar to what was wrong with old versions. The playlist function and organization of the music is inferior to Amazon's format. It is too difficult to find music sometimes and to add music to a playlist if not going alphabetically. I don't have an answer to this problem, just noting it. Overall, great product.

                        The iPod touch is exactly what you would expect. The level of service and price compared to Apple and other retailers is what made the difference.

                                We bought this product to help play Pandora on a bluetooth speaker downstairs in our new home. The additional options to be able to check your email without having to go upstairs to the desktop is nice, however, the small print and constant need to enlarge images/text is a bit annoying.

                                      I like that it doesn't have so many GB that I would most likely NEVER use in my lifetime. The only reason I give it 4 stars is I just wish they had the camera in the back like the 32GB ones, and the different colors. But otherwise, I don't need more than this iPod.

                                      I use this iPod daily and it's really just an overall great device. I was initially a little put off by it because it's so thin and light, but it's actually very comfortable to hold. The touch screen is very fast and responsive, like every other Apple device I've owned. The screen is very clear and vibrant. The battery life is fantastic.

                                      I am a little disappointed it didn't come with a wall charger (just the USB charging cable) but I think that's the standard with most MP3 players. It also kind of sucks that there is no camera on the back like with previous models, but not a deal breaker by any means. Great product!
