Bad: Battery life, freezes, buffers, wireless network connection.
Comment: The ipod 4th gen is a great gadget. Infact im posting this review on here with it right now! Its very easy to type on because the letters are spaced out & the touch screen is very good & responsiv! But nothings Perfect! Ive had my fair share of problems with my ipod, it has a tendancy to close the app down and take you back to the main screen which gets annoying, also the camera is only good for videos, and in the light. Battery life isnt to bad but could be better! Very good gadget! Very fragile, easy to brake. Very gpod on memory & very loud with music, overall great gadget to have but doesnt come cheap! I would recommend this to anyone!
Good: App's, multimedia, camera and web surfing.
Bad: Lack of notification icons, glitches, no widgets.
Comment: The i pod touch has transformed the mp3 market with amazing innovation and period style to match any alternative. The screen renders well and quickly shows sharp images coupled with the video player is a very impressive tool apple has. App's are great and its versatility is wide from being an iPhone substitute to a duel purpose MP3 device. Games are fantastic as my cousin Ibraheem has used my iPod as a new user and mentioned the array of games and impressive graphics.
Problems are lacking in notification icon's which Android 2.2/.3 have nailed. Glitches occur when using more then 1 application which tends to be annoying as its main premise is multitasking. These are small problems and an update with apple will defiantly cure such problems.
Good: great camera for videos, apps work great with a high quality screen, touch screen is very well calibrated and i have experienced no problems
Bad: not much, maybe needs more battery life
Comment: I love this iPod, best gadget ever!!
Good: touch screen downloadable apps, some free apps, good quality vids and pic
Bad: its a piece of crap!! has so many problems
Comment: I paid $420 for the iPod Touch 4th Gen, i was super excited to use it, i was able to download tons of apps! games ect. I had it for maybe 7 months and it starts freezing, glitching, stalling, and all of a sudden the screen turns completely white then shuts itself off, i would turn it back on and/or restore it and it still turned white and kept shutting itself off, and now it officially will not turn on at all even when fully charged and it when i try to restore it the iPod Touch won't stay on long enough for it to restore! The damn thing is a piece of crap and waste of money! I'm getting an Android phone instead that has apps, web ect. Do NOT buy the iPod Touch, and if you do then i advise you get the $30 dollar careplan for it.
