    Wouldn't recommend if you want to dock.

    I upgraded from my original Ipod to gain more storage, period. I currently dock to a Bose radio to listen to music when I am at my cottage. The new Ipod doesn't allow you to dock anymore. You can attach with a composite cable. Why did Apple take this feature away. So, it's Bluetooth. What harm would it have caused to leave the Ipods dockable? Very disappointed. Just have to keep buying more cables, radios, whatever to adapt this thing. Very, very disappointed.

    Works, but the battery life is nonsense

    I had an older generation Nano that I loved, but it finally died of old age and I replaced it last week. This one is fine as long as it's plugged in, so no problems listening in the car which is my primary use - but as soon as I unplug it and try to listen to music in my office or at the gym, I have about 45 minutes before the "low battery" warning. What is the point of a portable music player that can't be away from it's charger port?

    The form factor was better on the Nano 6

    This proves to be another Apple device that is more form than function. It was a replacement device for a Nano 6 that found its untimely end in a washing machine. While I do like the lightening connector, the longer, narrower form factor makes the armband for this similar to what you'd where for an iPhone. So, in that case, maybe using an iPhone would work better. Other than that, if your music is in iTunes, it at least offers you a smaller device to play music with.

    When I purchased the refurbished version of this from Best Buy it was a "certified refurbished product". During the time the IPod Nano worked, it was fine. HOWEVER, after only 8 months it stopped working. I've purchased many Apple products in the past, both new and refurbished, directly from Apple, not Best Buy. Never have I had this happen. I am very disappointed that the Best Buy one broke so soon.

    I have an iPon Nano but since they aren't being made anymore I wanted a back up but .... the I can't slide to the next screen. This is the 2nd one I have had a problem with. I will return and try one more time, I already returned one that had the same problem. I tried all the 'fixes' I could find online but still no luck. I will recommend it because my other one works great.

    Too complicated for me.

    I found the item much too complicated for me. I am not really tech savvy and even with the clear directions and You Tube I grew frustrated with it. I ended up giving it to my brother in law who said he would program it for me and download my music. I don't know if I want it back though as just looking at it irritates me. I guess I'm not tech friendly when it comes to little things.

    Memory to small

    My new car will only work with the latest Ipods. However the max size Nano I could find was 16MG and this was insufficient. So the only available Ipod that will work for me was the Touch. It would be nice if there were a Nano that had more memory and cost less than the Touch. It could even be a larger size and not have all the features of the Touch if it cost less.

    I returned yhis iPod about 5 minutes after I purchased it. It's the only iPod model that has the FM radio antennae, which is why I bought it. But it only works with plug-in earbuds or headphones. I cannot use the FM radio feature with my bluetooth earbuds while I run or exercise. I wld only recommend it to someone with this info about the product.

    Cannot put subscription music on iPod

    I returned this since Apple does not allow you to download music to your iPod with their own iTunes subscription. All music has to be bought if you want to sync it with the iPod. That was a deal breaker for me. Pretty disappointed with this being my first Apple device. Went back to Spotify on my phone. Get with the times Macintosh...

    This is probably the worst apple product I've ever had expecte with. The iPod is lagging and the battery is not good. The radio feature is cool, but no update available since like 2012. Headphones don't have buttons, iPod has no vice command. Overall quality feel is cheap, but selling for extraordinary price.

    It is slow to respond to button commands and I haven't figured out how to turn off the voice over feature since I got mine a couple weeks ago. There is no way to go back a screen, the only button takes you to the start screen.

    I use my ipods in my car and play them through the lightening cable. However, with the new series of nano ipod, you cant play music while its plugged in. It makes doing what Id like with it impossible.

    I found the swipe area much too small and not responsive enough. I was not mindful enough before I purchased it. As an adult with long fingernails, the Nano did not work well for me. Returned for the IPod touch.

    We actually needed something to communicate between Amazon Music and the Nano, unfortunately our Apple computer would not work nice with the music function, it wanted iTunes.

    Product worked great for 2 days. Then the product would not charge. . . ever. This was the first iPod nano I have bought and would recommend a iPod touch before a nano.

    This device is hard to sync with music from your mac computer, I struggled for hours then traded it in the next day for the iPod touch. Now I'm satisfied with my purchase.
