    The best mp3 player/handheld device there is

    I stepped up from an ipod touch 4th generation from late 2012 to the current 6th generation ipod touch from 3/2017. My previous ipod had 32 gb of storage an A4 processor, a 3.5" screen and 720p movie recording capability. My new ipod touch which was bought as a Best Buy Deal of the Day had a list price of $400.00, but, I got it with a discount $35.00 and free shipping to my home. Any time Best Buy is selling it for less than $400.00, it is a bargain. This new ipod I bought has 128 gb of storage, an A8 processor, a 4" screen, 1080p movie recording capability, and SIRI. I needed this new ipod because my music library has grown a lot and I wanted to be able to take more music with me wherever I go. I also wanted to be able to upgrade to ios 10 since my old ipod is only upgradeable to ios 6. Why even own an ipod touch? Well if you want the functionality of an iphone, but want to still use you existing cell phone which may not be an iphone that is one reason. For another reason, if you own an iphone, but do not want to run down the iphone battery playing mp3 music files all day, then an ipod touch comes in handy, you can play mp3 music all day on the ipod while not running down the battery of your iphone. Keep in mind the ipod touch can do pretty much everything an iphone can do so long as you are within the range of your home's wi-fi. So, if you want to see what an iphone can do on a trial basis without actually owning an iphone, then an ipod touch is a good first step, even a model that has a smaller storage capacity.

    Rather disappointed in apple for this product

    I'm an Apple user, I've had iPods, iPod Touches, iPads, MacBooks, and iPhones, but this is probably one of the most disappointing products I've come across in my time of using apple. The battery life on this thing is pitiful, it's basically just a product they threw together just to get out an iPod touch to keep it in the market. I don't mind that it's thin and comes in different colors, I like the aluminum build and storage options, but the battery life is awful. It was a gift for my mom and with the battery life being so short I had to buy her a power bank just so that she wouldn't have to be constantly plugging the thing into the wall. The price for this wasn't worth it if Apple ever releases a newer model of iPod Touch I will be sure to check the specs in a more detailed manner before I purchase IF I purchase again. Aside from those issues it's still a decent product if you just want a small iPhone-like device just for streaming videos, using the internet for searching, shopping, social media, etc, the camera is decent, with the iOS installed and even after upgrading it's still very good to use, but if you plan on using it a lot I would recommend buying a large power bank to keep on hand, or a long apple lightning charging cable in case you wanna lay in bed or on the couch and use it without having to plug it in and leave it on the table/floor/etc.

    Outstanding Product

    When my one friend (a true audiophile) recommended this product, I had to see what the buzz was about. Since I have never even had a smart phone, I was a little wary about how user-friendly it would be to use. It turns out that it is a wonderful and easy to use product. Initial setup was a breeze. Once I established an Apple ID, it was simple form that point on. Since I already had Itunes on my laptop and had already ripped a number of CDs, It was just a matter of syncing the Ipod touch with my PC -- a snap. The build quality and sound quality are superb! I can honestly say that I am very happy with my purchase. I plan to use it when I travel both in the car and on airplanes to help pass the time. Since I got the 128 gb version, I can store an AMAZING amount of music etc. on it. This is a good attribute since a have over 400 CDs in my personal collection (several thousand songs). I am still loading more songs in Itunes!! (There should be plenty of space left when I'm done, So I should be able to add more from the Itunes store (or from more CDs) after that. Again, this is a GREAT product!! Highly recommended!!

    I got this thing as an upgrade to my old iPod Classic- little did I now I would fall in love with the thing as quickly as I did. I'll admit- I was a little reluctant at first. Another "touch screen" device? Did I really need it? Whether I needed it or not...I had no choice. My old iPod was becoming unstable and unreliable and the touch-screen iPods are the only option nowadays. Once I cleared out all the apps I wouldn't need or use and downloaded my music, I began to explore. And holy cow...I fell in love. I adore the interface, the way it lets you choose volume setting, Repeat and Shuffle options, and other options so easily. And scanning through a track to get to your favorite part is easy as heck! I highly recommend one if you're looking for a way to take your ENTIRE collection on the go: the 128GB storage version easily holds everything I have plus room for another 50%! Go for it and enjoy!

    It's an IPOD Touch

    I like my IPOD Touch. I've been buying IPOD since the 1st generation models. I always want the ones with the most memory for maximum storage. I've downloaded some music to listen to at work. The only thing that I don't like about Apple Ipod is it doesn't save the downloaded music, movies, pictures etc that you download from CD's or transfer my library from other IPODS that I have purchased in the past 2 1st generations and 2 IPOD touches(or I forgot the password to 2 previous past accounts). There should be a way to transfer the memory to the newer up to date models. Apple I just want the memories and time from my old IPODS to my new IPODS. I would give 5 **** if I can every transfer my old library that's on each of my 4 old IPODS

    My 4th ipod touch, definitely the best.

    I love Ipod touches. I have had the first version (32Gig), fourth (16Gig), fifth (32Gig) and now the 6th(128Gig). This has the best cameral of any, still updated to the newest IOS, and has a fast response time. Exterior is same as iPod 5, which I have and still use but I enjoy having the much bigger storage space and higher specs. It is a little more expensive than other Mp3 players, but this also has other features and functionalities not available on competitors and it is Ios based, which for me is a plus. I enjoy the ease of use that ios provides. I would like it to be a bigger screen than prior versions, but I still enjoy it as is. I would recommend. I bought it on sale so could not pass it up, especially since I have heard rumors of Apple doing away with the ipod line, so for now at least, I have the newest while it is available.

    128GB iPod

    I am an old Zune user but my new Ford won't recognize it. So after waiting a year, I got my first iPod, just to have my tunes on the road. I am very disappointed in the iTunes software, which allows duplicate songs to be stored on the same album & requires you to manually delete them, & cannot find the album covers for many of the CD's loaded on my PC. (The Zune software had 99% of them.) AND the worst thing - some songs loaded onto tthe iPod are "greyed out" & the iPod won't play them. And no one seems to know why, OR the fix! Ugh! More research & work to do just to try to get my iPod in the same shape my Zune was. I am shocked that iTunes is not bug-free! Come on Apple! WTF!

    My old Ipod was stolen when my house was broken into. I finally ordered a new one and it arrived fast. But right away I realized it was much smaller than my old one so now I would have to buy a new docking station and case. And setting it up was a pain in the butt. I just want to listen to my music when I work out. I don't care about the "cloud" or setting up other stuff I will never use. Like all the apps. Why can't they come with no apps and we buy what we want. They take up space! Then when I went to sync it I had to update itunes, which is time consuming. then I had to update the ipod. I do have a good thing I like about it... I can play it in my new Jeep. Now I have to stop so I can go buy a new docking station with a speaker.....

    Recently upgraded my 5th Generation Apple Itouch to a 6th Generation Apple Itouch due to the fact that 64GB just doesn't cut it anymore since Music isn't the only thing that I keep on my Apple Itouch. Sadly, as in the case for a recently bought tablet, Best Buy is more than happy to sell the tech, but the support is lacking with NO screen protectors or protective cases available in store. I chose Metallic Blue since "Red" was more like a metallic pink and the other colors weren't to my taste. More than enough storage for now to handle anything I throw at it although some Apple Apps that worked or were available for the I-touch 5th Generation are no longer available or working for the 6th Generation. Overall, VERY happy and pleased with my purchase.

    Hi, My re view is based on the last 2 days. Nice sound quality. It is small and easy to lose. It also seems a bit fragile. The processors seem fast. I am not sure about the gaming situation. Do you have to buy in ap purchases for everything or are there basic games you can get for free? Old arcade style. The screen is not large enough to do small detail things on. It does have a beautiful display for the size. I do think the price was a little on the high side. I have to learn more about it to determine that. I would buy the protection plan.... Being as the size is so small the battery life isn't as great as it could be.

    I chose this iPod touch after my iPod classic (which I’ve had for 15 years) was accidentally ruined in the washing machine. I didn’t know what to expect since I was so familiar with my classic and I honestly almost got another one but after contemplating for awhile I decided to upgrade. I was surprised to find that I enjoy the iPod touch way more and love all of the space to add songs and music apps. I customized it to be the perfect music machine that fits my needs. Wish I would have upgraded years ago!

    Give Me More GBs

    My only complaint is I need more GB. I consider myself a moderate user of ipod but my moderate library of music, movies and audiobooks won't fit. Other than that it's great. Still getting used to all the things this can do for me. Love getting my email on the ipod, but not the primary use for me so I often put in in airplane mode to save on the battery. APPLE, please make a 1TB device....LOL. I can't be the only person that want more memory and a longer battery.

    I had old style ipod that was simple in design and no brainer to use. While the new Ipod is great, it has way too many do-dads on the screen for me. All I wanted was music and bluetooth connectivity. No bluetooth and too many other services that are not needed. Also, it is challenging to connect the lightning adaptor to my home stereo... but have found work around with carefully chosen cables. Music storage is very good, playback is touchy. Trying to resume playlist when you last turned off ipod is next to impossible.

    I love my 16GB iPod Nano, but needed more space. Only iPod touch remains, and it comes with too many complications. I don't need all of the security, two factor ID, always wants me to login with Apple ID. All of the complications of a wifi iPad, My Jeep starts playing my Nano right away, I have to login to my iPod Touch before it starts playing. If I disable login and security it keeps wanting me to re-enable and login to Apple ID. Seems the time of simple, easy to use iPods for just playing music has passed.

    I already have an ipod classic 160gb, and it is full. So, I needed to get another ipod to start filling up. So, I purchased this one on sale. Being my first ipod touch, I was not totally sure how I would like this, since I was so used to the classic platform. Wow! Talk about some nice features! Very easy to access the things you want, when you want them fast. No scrolling through a plethora of music files just to get to the one you want! Although, I was really hoping Apple have would released a higher gb than the 126gb. Well, maybe one of these days, right Apple? Other than that, I love this ipod!

    This was not my first my iPod so I am already familiar with how great they are however, the Bluetooth connection on this unit was terrible. When using my wireless Bluetooth connected earbuds, I heard a constant clicking when listening to music. I did not experience this clicking when using my Android Samsung phone or iPad. I made sure the earbuds were fully charged and the iPod was in my back pocket while I was listening to it so the unit was not too far away from the earbuds. I ended up returning it to the store. Maybe my unit was defective but I have not purchased a replacement for it yet. If the Bluetooth worked properly then I would have given 5 stars.

    Still Prefer iPods to iPhone

    I am an Android user, so I still need to purchase actual iPods. I like the new iPod touch that I bought to replace my 6th gen scroll dial, but I wish there weren't so many issues interfacing with iTunes. I had to factory reset multiple times before I was able to get my music downloaded onto the iPod. I prefer this method, since I use it primarily in my car and don't want to constantly have to turn on my mobile hotspot to provide an internet source to stream from iTunes cloud. I can definitely see where Apple is trying to force the purchase of an iPhone and make it less user friendly to do so.

    I've owned 3 IPODS in the past and this was a big upgrade for me. I am very happy with the device and am happy with Apple Music. I bought the big storage because I have an extensive music library and am partnering with Apple Music to add to my music collection. The device is small enough to fit in your pocket and has many features that I like using. I bought a wallet type case for the IPOD and it's snug as a bug in a rug. I set it to Wifi sync so when I add music to ITUNES it automatically syncs to the IPOD.

    I bought this to use with my Bose bluetooth speaker while working. The bluetooth connects easily compared to other products I've used. Was using an MP3 player and was not the happy camper I thought I would be. It was finicky when connecting to the speaker and battery life was terrible. This iPod runs all day without needing a charge. Easy to use and scanning through my song list is a breeze. Don't like a song, delete it with ease. Also works well with my MacBook Pro. It's a bit pricey if all you intend to do is play music but I'm very happy with it.

    I love iPods but I miss the classic video with the click wheel's volume capacity and battery life... iPod touch nowadays has so much more bloatware and is made for more than just playing music so they don't last as long on continuous play and are less powerful in volume. I miss the old ones for these reasons but this is still a great product and works awesome. I love this color. Best Buy also worked with me on giving me a credit for the USB connection as it was an open box item and it was missing even though it said all accessories were included on the red tag.
