The fourth-generation iPod Touch offers plenty of surprises for its buyers.
The most obvious treat that the device gives is its attractive price tag. Available for only $199, you can save around a hundred bucks if you opt to buy this instead of its fifth-generation counterpart. On top of that, this one has top notch features and design that could rival most new products in the market. Also, one has to take note that its iOS 6 system makes this gadget very fun to use.
Looking at it closely, it should be immediately evident that Apple aimed to maintain their tried and tested formula when it comes to this version. Everything you loved in iPod devices are here – from music playback and photos, to videos and games, to podcasts and audiobooks. Favorite features such as FaceTime video calls, iCloud support, iMessages, HD camcorder, and more can be found here.
Of course, some critics would point out that this version offers less superior processor and that it lacks key features such as GPS and 3G capability. This is, however, very understandable since the company had to cut a few corners to make sure that they can sell the device in an affordable price.
Design-wise, Apple retained the classic vibe that users have grown to love in the gadget. The camera lens can be found at the upper-left portion of the back along with the pinhole camera. Turning it over, you will immediately see the front-facing camera prominently displayed above the screen.
As far as its hardware is concerned, the device gives you an A4 processor and a 3.5-inch Retina Display, among others. On the other hand, the front-facing camera is not only perfect for taking self-portraits but can be very useful for video calls. If you prefer using the back camera, then that shouldn’t take much of your time since a toggle button is conveniently placed at the touch screen.
Now a few words about the camera. You have to know that the two cameras are only capable of capturing video still shots…
