A first look at the Apple iPod Touch 5th Gen

Hello there, long time no see 🙂 We have an iPod Touch 5th Gen in-house, many thanks to a kindhearted friend that gifted it to me. The device has been with me for some weeks now, though I haven’t had time to use it – no thanks to NYSC camp (expect a post on my camp adventures 😉 )

Meanwhile, here’s a brief hands on review and first look with the Apple iPod Touch 5th Gen:

At first look, you might confuse this with a phone, but when you put it on, the name ‘iPod’ is written on the top left corner. This device has a 4-inch screen and best of all, it’s super sleek. There’s a 1.2 MP FaceTime HD (selfie) camera in the front, and a 5 MP iSight (back) camera with LED flash.

Trust me, the image output is awesome despite the low megapixel count. The circle on the bottom left side is a kind of button. When pressed, it comes up. This serves as a latch, in case you want to use straps or a rope with the iPod. At the very top lies the power button, then on the left side is the volume buttons.

On the bottom side, you find a 3.5 mm earphone jack, the lightning connector port and inbuilt speakers. This iPod is basically an iPhone 5s with no SIM slot, as they share the same camera module and screen – except for the lesser RAM size.

This iPod has Wifi and full support for apps and games. It’s has already become my close companion for a whole lot of reasons. Stay tuned as I would be sharing more of my experiences with this device.
