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.
I fought till the end about going to the ipod touch. Loved my ipod classic. Classic wasnt staying charged long, etc
Easy to use. I love that i can make playlists from the ipod touch.
Can't complain about the classic. It lasted many years. Hopefully I'll get just as many years from this one.
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.
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 got this initially because I was upgrading from a 3rd generation iPod touch that I had for over 10 years running strong, but I accidentally dropped it overnight in the rain and didn't find it until the next day. The good things about this in comparison to what I'm coming from, which is a much older model, is the fact that the software is newer, it has a camera compared to the 3rd gen, which did not, and the newer models simply allow for more storage space. My older iPod was only 32 GB but I upgraded to 128 gigabytes with this new one.
One thing that I'm not very happy with at all, is the battery life. Please be aware if you're going to buy this, then you're going to want to have a charger handy. My old 3rd gen iPod would go days without dying. On this new iPod, When I was simply doing nothing else but flipping through music and had Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned off, I lost like something around 40% or more of my battery life in less than an hour just looking through music. That's pretty unacceptable in my opinion. I needed an upgrade and I thought going brand-new would be the best route because of how long my brand-new 3rd gen lasted me when I bought it back in 2010. However, as much as there are other things that were an upgrade in getting a newer one, I think the battery was a massive downgrade. I expect better from a company that touts superior products and charges more overall for their products as well. In regards to durability I also feel that the 3rd generation was made much more durable and built to last longer than these new ones. I did get a waterproof and shockproof case for this, but I pray that I never drop it just the wrong way and have an issue because, that would be a waste of $300 at that. However, if you had a 3rd gen, you would know what I'm talking about when I say that those can withstand a lot of drops without an issue. I feel like these are much less durable than their ancestors.
The blue color is nice, and its nice to have another device that can hold apps as a back up so to speak, and an extra camera, but I'm not so sure I would have gotten this and spent this kind of money if I had known the battery life would be this poor. By the time I had more time, to actually get acquainted with this issue, I was past the return window, which I disagree with not even giving customers a full month to decide if something works well for them or not; it was only 2 weeks after I contemplated if I should bother keeping it, and saw I was "passed the return window" and was not happy.
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.
These are perfect for that kid in your life that doesn't need a phone but is ready for an entertainment device. It's small, holds a charge for days and is easy to use. Pair with a quality case and glass screen cover and you'll never have to worry about it breaking. Downside, Apple doesn't do kids modes well. They are difficult and a pain to setup and I feel like I don't get much in terms of managing.

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:AnswerIt lasts 40 hours but it lasts me all day til the battery
is in red and I have all the background app refresh off
on all apps except for music especially when I go out riding
it lasts all day long!
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
