Apple iPod Touch 2015: IPhone Without the Phone

Posted on 28 August 2015 Tags: Apple, Feature, iPod

2015 has been a fairly quiet year for Apple, but things are now picking up steam with the launch of the Apple iPod Touch 2015. The affordable media player is being launched in a new avatar for $199, with a storage capacity of 16 GB.

The device comes with a 4-inch, 1,136 x 640 pixels screen, with 326 ppi. It is powered by the 64-bit A8 chip from Apple, also featuring an M7 motion coprocessor. The size of the device is a major talking point, as it has been reduced by a fourth as compared to its 2012 iteration. Add to that the poor battery life, with a maximum playback of 6 hours, and there are some doubts about whether the Apple iPod Touch 2015 will actually work for Apple. The device doesn’t feature GPS as well.

Besides the ups and downs, one thing users will surely appreciate about this new device is its camera, which is probably the biggest improvement as compared to the previous versions. The gadget comes with an impressive 8-MP camera that offers great image quality, with crispness, depth and clarity.
So, feel free to record videos at 1080p with it, but note that high-resolution videos are limited to 30 fps, which is lower than the standard. The device packs a 1.13GHz processor. This still ranks relatively high as compared to other devices in its price range.

Verdict
Overall, it is a fun little gadget to play with and you will most definitely enjoy its camera, good quality hardware and an impressive classic design. It is a great device if you want a fitness companion or a separate device to carry your music library. Given the fact that most smartphones already take care of that, the iPod Touch 2015 might feel a bit redundant.
