My husband loves using this ipod. He says it saves him from storing all his music on his phone. It is such a great sidekick to have because it does so much more than stores all your music, has the ability to add all kinds of apps, i.e, facetime, email, maps, books, etc, even has a decent camera for everyday shots. We love using the Bluetooth feature to play music throughout the house. Although we bought a separate protective cover for it, we love the pretty blue color of the ipod even though you don't see much of it with the cover on it.
My experience buying my iPod touch was great the website told me they had the model storage space and color that I wanted in stock when I got to the store it was there I purchased it. I ordered a case for it from Best Buy at a later date because they didn’t have one in stock, I now have it on the iPod I am happy.
I gave this to my wife as a present for Christmas and she loves it. I was updating her from an older iPod Touch that couldn't do every thing she wanted ( It wouldn't update its operating system--so some apps and websites stopped working on it and many videos wouldn't play). Plus, the old one would only last 5-10 minutes before the battery would die. The big improvement this new iPod has is that it can update its operating system (but not forever!) and it has more memory. While I believe rechargeable batteries should last more than four years, and mobile devices should be able to expand their memory, you end up being locked into an ecosystem. I still have an iPod Classic, and all my friends and relatives have iPhones. I was tempted to just break down and get an iPhone, but she loves the phone she has.
I also got a present out of this, in a way--I received a fitbit for Christmas and it couldn't connect to my computer (Windows 7--I have since updated this with a dual-boot to Windows 10), my phone (one with no memory for apps), my tablet (old android operating system that cannot be updated), and my wife's old iPod Touch (again, too old of an operating system). So this made my fitbit a useful tool (until I updated to Windows 10) instead of a useless piece of plastic on my wrist.
One last thing about battery life--My tablet and iPod classic are 6 and 10 years old respectively, and while there is some degradation in battery life, both can be used for for over ten hours before they need recharging.
I recommend this iPod as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone. I cannot speak to its battery life because I have not monitored my wife's charging regimen. I believe she will get many years use and joy from this. And since she now has 128 GB of memory, I can put our entire music library on it and have plenty of room for apps.
This is the iPod touch. If you're buying it, you probably already know what it can do.
The camera is not that great. Battery life is not that great, especially when compared to Apple's latest phones. Video quality is so-so. The screen is tiny.
So why did I buy it?
It's a good device for my kid. That's why. He can download apps, create videos and edit them in iMovie, etc. He can take photos, and I can text him when he's on WiFi.
He's only 10, and I don't want him to have a full-fledged phone. He's learning the iOS eco-system, which is great, because he's eventually going to have an iPhone.
And he can do a lot on this little machine. Videos. Pictures. E-books. Facetime. Text. It's a perfect starter for a young kid. And with the 128GB storage space, he can take a lot of videos and a lot of pictures before we have to start talking about data management.
If you're looking for a cheap device for a young kid who's just getting started with Apple products, this is a great way to go.
I am glad I got this iPod. I am one who doesn’t want a streaming service because I have all the music I want to listen to and my iPod stores all of that. What I love the most is that I decided to get the 128 gig, because my old 32 gig was running out of space. I am thankful Apple decided to make a more recent iPod and hope they will continue to make the iPod because I will always buy it.
Basically an IPhone in terms of features except a cellular antenna to make phone calls. You can still send messages to people just need to add their contact #. All apps in the App Store will work like an IPhone. You can use it to check your email and do FaceTime calls. Also comes with a camera on the back like an IPhone. The 7th Gen of the IPod Touch will probably be the last model since the IPhone makes the Touch almost absolute nowadays. I have an IPhone but maybe someone who uses Android can make good use of it as a glorified music streaming player.
My 9 year old has been begging for a phone... personally I think he is too young but this iPod looks just like a phone does everything a phone does except for calls but FaceTime and text is available. And this lets him feel like he’s growing up and gives him the chance to show if he can be responsible with something like a phone without the monthly bill which is a bonus for sure. The iPod touch blows my mind how far the iPods have come since when I was in high school Way better then the one I got for Christmas to replace my Walkman
So happy to found this right before Christmas in a Nick of time to replace my daughter iPod she had for years that stopped taking a charge. This one has more GB. So far it works great! Highly recommend for those that are not ready for a phone or with challenged needs. There’s an app called “kik” that can be downloaded for texting. Their contacts must also have Kik app!

iPod touch (2019) Review: The Cheapest iOS Device Has Some Trade-Offs
The iPod touch is a decent option if you want in on the vast array of iOS apps, including those that feature AR but don't want to pay more than $200 for the privilege. But even a used iPhone would give you those benefits, along with longer batteryFull Review

iPod Touch review (7th-gen): do you still need an iPod in 2020?
A:AnswerAs a music lover myself, I too have over 5,000 songs in iTunes. I chose the 128gb because the 64gb just had enough memory. This way, with the 128gb, if you chose to add more music, you'll still have space without having to delete any of your favorites.
A:AnswerI've had the apple IPod 7th gen for a few weeks now, the battery life is pretty amazing, i'd say about 17-19 hours. I'm not sure how much longer than the 5th or the 6th because I never owned those gens.
A:AnswerCurrently my iPod shows that I have 3526 songs with 94.74 GB Still available of 128GB capacity. So about 34 GB of storage is being used right now A small amount of the used capacity might be video but maybe 200 or 300 MB, the OS and pre-installed apps also probably take up a few GB. I use the iPod in a similar fashion to what you describe, no Apps or games no streaming, just local downloaded music files. It looks like it should hold maybe 14000 songs by my rough estimate, assuming I don't start using games, apps or video files that begin taking up a lot of storage space.
A:AnswerIt should be enough. It actually depends on how much music, videos and games they plan to store. From my experience children easily get tired of games and videos and just keep their favorites so it should be a good start. They can always add and delete. They should have fun with Apple TV. My daughter had an older 16gig iPod and she was able to keep a lot of songs and games in it and she has it for over 10 years now with still some memory left
