Score 1.0/10
Good points:
FaceTime and the apps.
Bad points:
I purchased a 5th generation I pod online and although it said it had a camera it is not the usual rear mounted camera that you should find in the 5th generation IPod touch screen. Unfortunately, as it was a christmas present and was only mentioned to me by my daughter at the beginning of January. It turns out that the first batch of 5th generation touch pad iPods did not have the rear mounted camera...so be careful when ordering online, you may not get quite what you expected.Im still waiting to hear back from customer services.

Good points:
Ipod great as expected
Bad points:
No forward facing camera! God knows who decided that?! Only a backward facing camera so you can take photos of yourself easily!! Why Apple would you mess with the camera?

Manufacturer's Description

The iPod touch boasts a brilliant new design. The first thing you’ll notice about iPod touch is its barely-there weight. Then its super-smooth finish. Then all those Apple details — such as the highly polished bevelled edges. The iPod touch is made from one of the strongest grades of aluminium there is and now it comes in a variety of fun colours.

The 4-inch Retina display means more of everything you love. From music to messages and websites to gaming, your fingers will have more room to manoeuvre. The new iPod Touch screen is taller but not wider so you still have complete one-handed control.

All-new Apple accessories that come included with your iPod Touch are the Apple EarPods. The Re-designed Apple EarPods were tested on over 600 people to create the new shape. Unlike traditional circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is based on the geometry of the ear, making them more comfortable and stable during wear.


Power meets play with the Dual-core A5 chip. It’s the most powerful iPod Touch ever. The chip provides up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics than the previous generation. So games are incredibly responsive and realistic. Yet you get the same great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge.

The iPod Touch comes pre-loaded with great built-in apps. Send unlimited texts with iMessage over Wi-Fi. See your friend’s every expression with a FaceTime video call. Check your email with Mail, and browse the web with Safari. And iOS 6 adds new features with Siri, Facebook integration, Maps, Passbook and more.

With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatever’s on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV. Or send music wirelessly to compatible docks using the integrated Bluetooth connection.

A big new change is the Lightning to USB cable. For charging and connecting to your PC the new connection is smaller and smarter. With an adapter (sold separately) it will work with existing Apple products.
