Apple iPod nano 5th Generation Black (8 GB) MP3 Player
Packed to the gills with new audio-video features such as a video camera, FM radio, voice recording, Genius Mixes, a built-in speaker, and a larger 2.2-inch screen; also gets a pedometer. The Nano's camera can't shoot photos or HD-quality video and Apple located its lens in the most awkward location imaginable. Storage capacities remain stuck at 8GB and 16GB.No other MP3 player on the planet packs more features, from video to a pedometer, into a smaller package than the overachieving Apple iPod Nano.

It should be called a "smartPod"
All the features of an iPod, plus video and audio recording (voice memo)... BONUS: I did not realize that this Nano has a built in speaker for playback!
I already have a iPod classic, so I love the whole iPod/iTunes experience. I needed a digital recorder and decided that for the money, I would buy the 5th generation Nano, so that when I no longer need the recorder, I would have another iPod. The recordings are clear and do not have a time limit (apart from battery life and memory).
Note that other generations (older and newer) require external microphones and, as far as I know, do not have video recording.

Apple iPod nano 5th Generation Silver (8 GB)
I decided to buy this item, because my old mp3 player "Samsung S5" was failing me: the touchscreen buttons weren't as receptive as in the beginning, and it started to have lots of scratches over the years.
I wanted it to be easier to browse through my song list: I used to have to have to hold a button down for long periods of time so that I could browse "faster".
Also, I was looking for something with a bigger screen to watch videos, but still sleek and thin so that it would be easily portable.
When I got my item, I tried a few functions and I loved loved loved all lots of them (games, video, video camera, music browser, pedometer, etc.)! :)
Furthermore, being an iPod (being a very mainstream item), it is easier to find protective gear for my item thus less scratches.
Also, it is still very thin but not small enough to get lost in a bag (like the 6th gen).
Because of what I experienced before with my old mp3, I, personally, prefer the roulette over the touchscreen, and the screen gets less dirty.
Also, I find that this item powers up and powers down fast, but once again it is in comparison with older items that I posses.
I can record videos with sound, because there is a small mic next to the lens. I can listen to music without my earphones, because there is a "speaker" hole from which music comes out.
Although, I must say, that the speaker on the iPod Nano 5th gen, is not as good as the one I used to have on my S5 but it was the reason why the S5 was that thick.
And, I must say that one of its downfalls is that we can film but not take pictures :( despite all the functions that are offered

I LOVE MY IPOD! OMG OMG OMG!!!!!
Review For: Apple iPod nano 5th Generation (8 GB)
Why I Absolutely LOVE the Ipod Nano 5th Generation
So I was on Ebay recently, and I noticed how many people were looking for “ipods.” Inf fact, if you’ll take a look, “ipod” is currently the most searched term on all of Ebay.
So why is this?
Well, I have an Ipod, so I can tell you.
Besides the super long words in the terminology of the phone specs of the Ipod Nano 5th Generation, you will find that is also contains a stopwatch and pedometer, a calendar, clock and alarm clock, as well as FM radio, Voice Recording, and a camera! On top of that, it’s compatible with Itunes!
I was thinking, personally, about buying an MP3 Player for the longest time. I researched dozens of them. I will admit, too, that some of them are ACTUALLY pretty cool, but the grim reality is that lesser money equals lesser product. None of them compare to the QUALITY and DURABILITY that my Ipod Nano has! I think I’ve dropped it now at least a billion times since I’ve had it, and magically, it STILL works. It’s even sat on the edge of the tub while I’ve taken hot steamy bathes (NOT recommended, haha) and every function works perfectly with no difference from when I got it new.
Another big plus to the Ipod Nano 5th Generation besides its great features and quality craftsmanship along with its durability, is the fact that it comes in so many vibrant and beautiful colors! I could not believe my EYES when I opened my purple Ipod Nano 5th Generation for the first time! I was STUNNED! Just the brightest, most beautiful purple I’ve ever seen. The outside of the Ipod Nano 5th Generation is polished so that it shines like you can’t believe. It’s so sleek and so pretty, I find myself making excuses to look at it.
Okay, so I’ve said that the Ipod Nano 5th Generation is loaded with features, is quality made and very durable, comes in beautiful colors, and has a super glossy finish. You would think that would be enough to make me love this, right? Well, you are right! It WOULD be; but the fact is that there is even MORE about my Ipod Nano 5th Generation that I absolutely adore.
Okay, so this has a LITTLE bit to do with the specs, so I’ll try not to bore you. The Ipod Nano 5th Generation has the following dimensions: Width-1.5 Inch, Depth-.24 Inch, Height-3.6 Inch, and Weight 1.28 Oz. So, if a pound is 16 ounces, and out of those 16 ounces, the Ipod Nano 5th Generation weighs only 1.28, you can see that the Ipod Nano 5th Generation is EXTREMELY lightweight. I love this feature because it really makes the Ipod Nano 5th Generation a pick-up and go kind of item.
In fact, the size and shape and assortment of colors in this device are why I like it so much better than the Ipod Touch. Not only that, but if I wanted to use a touch screen with the features of the Ipod Touch, I would just use my cell phone, honestly. The Ipod was created to be a “portable easy to take with you and move around with” item. Your cell phone call do ALL of the things the Ipod Touch can do and more, but there is one feature that the Ipod Nano 5th Generation has that neither your cell phone OR the Ipod Touch have, and that’s the convenience factor that it offers from not having too much weigh and too many features to load it down.
I like this item so much, if fact, that I have decided to list it on my website for Christmas-time.
If you are looking for an Ipod Nano 5th Generation, I only have 5:
So it’s first come, first serve.
Good luck, h

I bought this iPod for my sister because her last one was stolen. The product arrived quickly and in the condition described. The 5th generation nano is compact, light, and looks very sleek. The video camera on the back takes great quality film. The long lasting battery life lets you listen to hours of music without needing to charge it again for about 24 hours. 16 GB is a good amount of space if you have a decent ammount of music, pictures, and video.
