Bad: no clip, battery runs out very fast, changed adapter doesn't fit most docking stations
Comment: Adding a clip to the 6th gen nano was a great move. But fr some reason Apple decided to get rid of it for this model, which makes it pretty useless for running or wearing to the gym, or using pretty much anywhere, unless you have pockets.
Such a shame they removed the clip for no apparent reason. Leaving it on would have made this model so much more appealing.
On a seperatenot the battery runs out very very quickly when compared to other models, which may be down to the bluetooth feature.
Good: its thinner and its more fun
Bad: its not a watch
Comment: the only reason it cant come to your speaker is because it has no internal speakers . it needs headphones to work
Good: It's smaller than i expected but i don't mind, It's quite simple but it's good. I already have an iphone so i didn't need the ipod touch
Bad: I'm struggling to connect it to my speakers. I bought an adapter (lightning to 30-pin) but when i use it with my speakers it doesn't work! It just won't play my music as i think it doesn't recognise it, yet my iphone does!
Comment: I'm struggling with making it connect with my speakers! I bought it especially so i can use it with my speakers, saving my iphones battery, but it's just not working! The Ipod itself is amazing, I really love it. Just because it's small it doesn't matter to me, i only wanted it for music, not watching videos or anything.
Good: bigger then before
Bad: still little, no camera, cant change backround to your picture
Comment: got this istead of the new ipod touch (mistkae) for christmas , and i cant stand it it is too tiny for me and it has no camera i also dont like how you can not chnage the backround to your own picture. you can not to anything on this besides radio fitness and music. i dislike it and i would return if i didnt already set everythingg up
Bad: 1 step forward...2 steps back!
Comment: Having dropped my older iPod in water and lost the radio facility, I was looking forward to getting this new 7th generation iPod for Christmas together with a new set of bluetooth earphones...till I realised this new iPod still requires headphones with an aerial/lead to receive radio transmissions. Where's the progress there? On top of that, I can't use my old iPod dock because to of the incompatible connection pins. I really think Apple has cocked up and lost a great opportunity, and I wanted to be loyal to them!
Good: Bigger than the 6 gen :& the return of the classic wheel
Bad: New connection!!!
Comment: I would have bought this item to replace my last ipod but because of the new connection pin I will not be buying the new one as the new one now not fit my car stereo and to remove the connection for the new i-pod means I would have to remove my stereo out of the car and buy fit with the new lead if i can find one to fit. Also this new i-pod will not fit my BOSE Docking station and if I got a new Adapter (if available) to fit that as well , it will not stand up correctly and cost me an extra £50 for 2 leads needed. Apple could have left the connection pin the same but its just a money making scam..it already cost £129 to buy then 2 leads for car stereo & Docking Station, a total of £179.00!!! Ripping of B****** ,, i liked Apple until now but now this is the end of my love affair after this!!!
Comment: "Whichever colour you opt for, they all have a white face surrounding the screen, with a white home button beneath." - apart from the slate/black model.....
Good: The new design and how it's much thinner.
Bad: It has no Internet so to get media you have to sync it from your computer
Comment: Looks cool.
Good: back in right direction after last model
Bad: not as good as previous models
Comment: I really liked my Ipod nano 5th gen, it looked great, was small and easy to use. But this one doesn't look anywhere near as good looking, and the decision to keep his video player nonsense is a bit misguided, does anyone REALLY watch films on that tiny screen? Why not stick a stills/video camera on the back if they really need video playback on it?
Comment: I'm outraged that Apple so blatantly ripped off Microsoft in the midst of releasing this Nokia plagiarism, but hungry hungry hippos is this thing the embodiment of my vacant life's fulfillment. I dream of this little cracker of technological paragon. I refresh my bank account's web page for my paycheck to come in.
However, the fact that Apple does not give you a complimentary lightning-to-30-pin adapter with the new generation models convinces me that Apple would be happy if every one of their customers mistook their shaving razors for their toothbrushes. I take personal offence to that marketing move.
Will that stop me from buying? I wish had the self-respect.
