Apple iPod Nano Review

Apple iPod Nano Review

Apple iPod nano 16GB, 7th Generation

It’s a mere 5mm thick which makes it very portable and easy to carry around.

It’s a very solid player overall, though it’s not cheap

A quick summary of the good and bad points

Apple iPod Nano

  Get it now on


  • Very compact, nicely made case feels quality in the hand
  • Headphones much improved over previous Apple buds (new “Earpods” are quite good) though not as good as some stand alone sets
  • Screen is a fairly respectable 2.5″ 432×240 pixel display quite sharp and clear, very good touch screen response quite accurate
  • Pedometer is built in if you fancy keeping track of your fitness/walking
  • Bluetooth 4.0, range is excellent and I had no problems with streaming music

Not so hot:

  • Radio function is a bit crude, lacking presets and no auto search (also requires the headphones to be plugged in) It does have a live pause function though (which is unusual and useful)
  • Wifi would be handy (maybe the next version)
  • Have to use iTunes to sync, drag and drop can be handy for video

Other notes:

Lightning connector is a change from the older iPods so you have to buy an adapter (which isn’t cheap) to fit most iPod docks. However you do have bluetooth which can make that a non issue. Battery life is good for music playback (Apple say about 30 hours it’s not far off that) expect a fair bit less with video playback though (enough to watch a movie or 2 at best, say 3 hours or so)

You can watch movies and look at photos (display is quite reasonable for movie watching but it’s not super high res either)
Sound quality is good, though not high end audio by any means. Some people will find the new EarPods not their taste, I get on ok with them but some friends are not keen at all. Comfort wise it’s down to taste.

It’s quite a simple player in many ways no fancy features really, but it does the job well overall. Price wise, there are certainly cheaper options out there, but many feel Apple deliver in terms of quality and style.
