Default 5th Generation iPod Touch Discussion

It's been about 2 years since an actual update to the iPod Touch lineup, and I was lucky enough to pick one up yesterday. I've played with it for a decent amount of time and wanted to start a discussion thread for anyone interested since not everyone owns iPhones.

For starters, here are some videos I took of the new iPod Touch. The first is a comparison video between 4G and 5G:

Here is Infinity Blade 2 running on the 5G. As a 4G owner, I never really played it on the 4G because of the crash issues when the game was loading. If I ever did manage to get it to run, it would be a laggy mess that was hardly playable. I'm happy to say that this is not the case with the new 5G:

If there is anything specific you are interested concerning the iPod Touch itself or a specific game you want to ask about, please let me know!

Yes it does and it looks beautiful, even with the letterboxing:

The framerate is smooth and it looks extremely detailed to me.

Have you run battery test? It is my biggest concern with iPod touch.

I used it last night for about 3 hours straight browsing, playing games and just doing things in general and the batter dropped to about 60% in that time. I haven't had a chance to test it thoroughly by playing graphically intense games, but so far, it's much better than my 4G was. I can't remember how good the batter for my 4G was when I first got it though, and I'm sure 2 years of daily use has shortened the longevity of it.

All I know is that it's been good to me so far. I've been messing with it at work here doing the same and the battery line has barely budged.

Lol, thanks... I think...

What model do you have now? I think it's definitely worth the upgrade even if you have a 4G model.

If you are interested in the quality of the camera, I posted some comparisons between 4G and 5G here:

I have the 4th gen and it's limitations are really starting to show. The fact that the 4th gen has a larger screen, faster processor, Siri, and better camera makes me think that this is the way to go, not to mention that there are different colors

I'm surprised IB2 and NOVA3 both still lack widescreen support. Gameloft and Chair are usually really quick with these new hardware updates.

The a5 chip will be a real game changer for you guys. It's a massive increase in speed.

Edit: that IB2 vid looks awful. Low grade textures, no realtime shadows, no real particle effects...that cannot be optimized for the a5.
