The display of this iPod is great; however, the rear camera is just horrible! We will continue to use our old 3G models because we are not convinced that the upgrade is worth the money!

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY:

Below is a summary of the feedback we gathered from the product's ACTUAL customers:

Pros:

* I purchased iPod Touch 8GB just for fun and all I can say is WOW! Indeed, it is like a pocket computer with seamless wireless connection!

* This is an excellent gaming device and portable computer. However, what is worth mentioning here is its screen display quality. The retina display is absolutely awesome!

* It just rocks! Worth every penny spent! Now I can surf the internet quite fast, check my emails, take pictures with the camera, and so much MORE! It also comes with a HD videocam, and the display is just a beauty to behold! I would rate it 5 out of 5!

* I think this iPod is a huge improvement over the previous iPod! It is worth the price tag due to all the extra features and a top-notch screen quality you get with it!

* I originally wanted to buy iPhone 4 but it was out of my budget! So I settled for iPod Touch. I must say that I was not disappointed at all and have started liking it after only a few days of use! The display is awesome because, compared to the older display, this one is easier on the eye!

* It is a great device because no other device comes even close to it. When you get it, you would feel the iPod Touch magic through and through!

* The retina display is great and the sound quality is much better than last year's 3G release. Moreover, I got two cameras! I also like that fact that it is quite small and not bulky! The MP3 player is one of the best ones available!

* I think it is worth upgrading to this iPod, even if only for the addition of the video chat feature! Moreover, the audio player is also an excellent portable device with decent sound quality!

* I got one for my birthday and love every aspect of it! Apple shows it magic once again! It is amazing how the iPod Touch has evolved over the years!

* To all those whining about the camera, let me just tell you that an iPod is meant to be used as a media playing device and NOT as a camera. Even if you cannot take super-quality photos with it, so what? It still serves its purpose of taking photographs and uploading them via the internet! As for the pros: the retina display, as well as the processor, are two major upgrades to the previous version; these two are capable enough to take iPod Touch to an entirely new level!

* I still cannot believe that this small portable device can be much more powerful than even my home PC! Truly, it is misleading to call it just an iPod when in reality you can do so much more with it than just playing music! This is a mighty little pocket computer that completely blows you away by its speed! The only issue I have with this iPod is that it depends a bit too much on a computer!

Cons:

* The display of this iPod is great; however, the rear camera is just horrible! We will continue to use our old 3G models because we are not convinced that the upgrade is worth the money!

* This iPod has a multitasking feature. The disadvantage is that there is no way to close an application except by turning off the iPod! Too many apps running in the background could suck away your battery power very quickly!

* I purchased the Apple iPod Touch 8 GB for my wife and she likes it very much. However, its capacity is not really 8 GB as advertised here; as soon as you connect with your computer and visit iTunes, you would notice that its actual capacity is just 6.5 GB!
