Advantages: Easy to use, effective
Disadvantages: Camera wasted perhaps?
If you have read my other reviews, you might notice I am definitely an Apple fan! Constant quality in their products, a sleek finish every time, very pretty yet highly technical handy portable device.
I had 2 iPods before this one (both nanos) so feel I can compare the products well.
Screen --> One of the best features of this certain Nano is that it appears to have a much more brighter screen, and also bigger than the other models (not by much, but it is noticeable). In bright light, dur to the LCD screen I'm sure, you are still able to see clearly the artists/tracks/songs - whereas the other models sometimes struggled.
Battery Life --> I think that the Nanos have brilliant battery lief anyway, I have just taken it on a 6 hour train ride and it still has over half of it's charge left, which is very good. It feels a similar battery life to the others, and does charge with most speakers, which saves you time charging it separately. The only thing I think Apple could change is having a time length of how long is left, because sometimes when it is on red, it decreases very rapidly (within the hour).
User friendly --> Very pretty and pleasing to the eye, and along with this it is very easy to use. The 'wheel' as it used to be known, is easy to get to grips with and select the certain thing you are after. Also very easy just to get back to the menu and start all over again! Apple also have a great way of resetting back to factory settings, if you are having problems with it, and it doesn't require a computer! yay!
New features --> Radio.. a brilliant extra feature! I sometimes find it's hard to pick up a signal, but once you do it's great to have all those extra music possibilities. Camera.. unfortunately this is something I just do not use. I always forget it has this feature!! I have tested it when I first brought it to check the quality which seems good, but video playback is something I prefer on bigger devices, e.g. cameras and phones.
Overall, they modernised the previous nano fantastically as ever.. and I still do love this model over the new nano, which I personally think is too small.
I also think you can't go wrong with Apple, the products always appear to have good solid consistency and reliability.
Summary: Another fantastic product from Apple
