    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.

    Bom produto. Eficiente e bonito. A única ressalva negativa é o fato de somente funcionar o rádio através do WIFI.

      Comments about 16GB iPod touch (Blue) (5th Generation):

      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.

      Comments about 16GB iPod touch (Space Gray) (5th Generation):

      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.

        This was an upgrade for my daughter's 4th generation iPod touch. She is happy with the fun, girly color and overall sleekness and feel of the new iPod. She loves the improved camera and is busy shooting and editing videos.

        Comments about 16GB iPod touch (Pink) (5th Generation):

        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!

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

                I bought one of these a few months ago to replace my old iPod touch 32GB 4th generation. I have a separate non-smartphone and use this to do all the smartphone business. It's totally worth the money.

                Compared to the 4th generation, it's a lot lighter. The screen is taller and thinner too, which I really like. It's a clean new look that goes along with iOS 7 and up.

                As for downgrading the storage space, it's not that noticeable. 16GB is all you really need for average use.

                    Our family has a number of iPod Touches of different generations and find them both fun and useful. I don't use a cell phone and do use this for voice over the internet, etc. My main gripe is that the older OS slow down way too fast and I suspect it's planned obsolescence---but I'm no techie so I don't really know about that.
