iPod touch 5th generation (2012)

 

The perfect 4-inch fun factory for those who can't afford an iPhone 5.

Good-quality screen ; Superb apps and games library ; Much-improved camera

Entry price a little high ; Loop lanyard feels gimmicky

Apple iPod Touch (5th gen)

 

Faces stiff competition, but there's no other product quite like it

Clearer and more detailed sound quality ; Richer, more subtle colours ; Great interface with swift response time ; Intuitive to use ; Web browsing is fast ; Picture clarity is better ; 5MP camera with flash ; Beautiful build and finish

Increasingly viable small tablets are the biggest rival in both screen size and price ; Expensive

Apple iPod Touch 5G review

 

The 5th generation iPod Touch is lighter and thinner than ever, but does it have enough tricks up its sleeve to make it more than just a media machine?

All the goodies of an iPhone 5, minus the talkie bit and contract.

Apple iPod touch (2012) fifth generation

 

The iPod touch has always been an interesting device. Branded as an Apple music player, it's rich feature set, sitting alongside the wide functionality of the iPhone, has always attracted those who either couldn't afford, or didn't want, an iPhone in...

Design is the best yet, light and compact, amazing screen, access to hundreds of thousands of apps and games, headphones are an improvement

Expensive, still reliant on the Apple-verse, dock connector will annoy some, EQ settings aren't great

The iPod touch clearly has plenty to offer in a market full of very good devices. Phones have never been better and they're so good that they've basically killed the standalone MP3 player. But not the iPod, which survives because Apple pours as much...

iPod Touch (5th Generation) review

 

Bigger is better, if your thumb can take the strain

Better screen ; Five colour options ; iOS 6 improvements ; Very thin and light ; Better earphones

Apple Maps! ; Lightning port is a reset ; You still need iTunes

While the more recent iPod Touch 6th Generation has the most capacity and fastest processor, its lack of a bright color-scheme makes the fifth generation touch the better looking device overall.

Apple iPod Touch review

 

With upgrades to its power and display quality, the iPod Touch is still the most versatile media player around

It's really hard to find a digital audio device that doesn't sound good these days and the iPod certainly doesn't suffer from any problems in terms of quality. It's a little bassier than the sound produced by our reference USB audio devices and by...

Apple iPod Touch (5th generation) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The iPod Touch is the flagship model in Apple's range of celebrated MP3 players. This 5th generation model, launched in October 2012, is pretty much identical to the more recent 2015 release. The newer model does offer a more powerful chip, better...

Apple iPod touch 16GB review (2013) - Apple's cheapest iPod touch

 

Apple's cheapest iPod touch is limited by its lack of rear-facing camera and relatively small capacity.
