"Gives you all the benefits of iPhone minus the $50 bill"4.0 starson by lief_palmi
Pros: Mini computer in your pocket
Front camera is great for skype
Retina Display is great for reading small print
720p HD video and Sound were great quality
Geotaging your photos via wifi
Safari web browser
Speaker is loud enough
Cons: Camera should have been at least 3.2 MP
Chrome backing is prone to scratches/dents.(Cover recommended)
Battery life could be better
8GB entry level was a little small...Should have been 16GB
Summary: When you have a device which almost replaces your HD camcorder, laptop and smart phone for around $200-400. Then you have something special.
Now a days there is wifi almost everywhere to check your mail/social networking/facetime. You don't need a smartphone's expensive contract with a monthly bill.
I got rid of my HTC touch diamond and went back to using a Motorola Krzr and it cut my cell phone bill in half. My savings alone paid this device off in just 8 months.
Downfalls were the 0.8 MP camera was very disappointing. I mean it might of been good for the nano but the itouch is a whole other category. The 720p HD video was great in low light concert conditions. Sound was clear. Aging Chrome backing is unsightly.
It is so great for travel. Holds all the media you can handle with up to 64GB of space. All the free apps work great for banking, netflix, news, gaming and editing your photos and videos. iCloud free upgrade made me love it even more.
The 32GB was the best $300 I spent in awhile. Great Device!
