Should I upgrade to the iPod Touch 5G?

Should I upgrade to the iPod Touch 5G from a iPod Touch 4G cause I hate the way iOS 6 runs on it, it's just too slow?

If you have the money, why not. It's a good upgrade.

After Apple trashed my iPod and iPad, I ditched iOS for Android. As a replacement for my iPod touch and old cell phone, I purchased an HTC Evo 3d, which is off contract for $300 at Virgin Mobile. You could buy it and only activate it for one month before cancelling the service and using it like a iPod. Over the new iPod you would still be getting a larger and glasses free 3d display, the ability to use SD cards, have a real GPS for navigation, and have a cool 3D HD camera and camcorder. The Evo 3D also has a dual core CPU and 1Gb ram, and a decent GPU , while running Android 4.

Not a good upgrade you're rich or wanna review it.
Reasons:
1)A5 chip(2 years old processor)
2)512 mb of ram( not enough bro)
3)you've got the 2011 refresh(like me, that's the reason for not upgrading)
It shall be rocking A6/A6X chip and 2gb of ram
I don't mind if it is more expensive but the specs sucks badly!!!maybe they should have a 5 inch screen!!

iPod 5G runs tonnes better than the 4G. Specs are irrelevant.

the A6 and A6X both only have 1GB of ram equipped on them

*cough* just sayin *cough*

If you can afford it I would say update. It's a fantastic upgrade from the A4 to A5 and from a horrible camera to a decent one.
