Cons: A flash/light would have been nice for low light shooting/pictures. GPS is needed. Nothing else.
Summary: Side Story:
I recently purchased an third-generation IPod Touch, and upgraded it to the 4.0.2 firmware, after the update, I noticed my battery life was decreasing quite rapidly. So I read some reviews and they stated that after other users upgraded to 4.0.2 they too where having battery woes. So finally 4.1 was released, and I hope the battery issue would be fixed. Unfortunately it was much worse. The battery would maybe only last 2 hours tops. Now I could have just been a defective battery, but seeing as that many people with the IPod 3G was having the same sort of issues, I thought it was best to return the IPod back to the store. The I bought this IPod. End of side story... on to the review.
HD Video Recording: I love the 720p video recording on this little device. And the fact you can upload directly to YouTube is a big plus.
Camera: To spite being low-res, I think the pictures you take with this IPod are amazing. Low-Light is a issue do to the lack of a flash or light, I wish they added that.. but I am sure it would put more of a strain on the battery.
Microphone: This mic can pick up sounds from far away, and it is great for all those fun apps you can download.
Fast: The IPod Touch 4G is by far the fastest I have every seen. Apps download at amazing speeds, load at even faster speeds, and the over all performance is amazing.
Long Battery Life: The battery life is a big deal to me, so I was beaming when I started to play around with this. I played for nearly 6 hours, taking videos, playing games, using the mic, and basically giving the IPod all it?s got and the lowest the battery has been was 41% and the varies from app to app.
Amazing Apps: I am able to download some great apps, now that this IPod has both a camera and built-in mic.
The only downsides to this IPod (if I had to pick) are there is no flash/light for low-light shooting, but then that would put lots of stress on the battery life.. so maybe it?s a good thing.
No GPS. It would be nice to take a picture somewhere and it state where the picture was taken, like it does on the IPhone.
All and all this is one amazing little device. Far better then any IPod in every way.
Perfect 5 out of 5!
