    Ipod touch 5 use same chip as iphone 4S but rear camera is only 5MP, front camera is same as IPhone 5 at 1.2 MP. Screen is exactly same. Ram is half as much.

    The camera is sort of a hybrid between the 4, 4S, and 5. It's 5 MP like the 4, but it has 1080p video and panorama like the 4S. The front camera takes 720p video like the 5.

    It's also missing the GPS.

    yes, i think camera aperture is f/2.4 which is better than f/2.8 in Iphone 4 dispite the same MP.

    Front camera is crazy good.

    So lack of GPS means the iPod Touch 5th generation is unable to do Turn-by-Turn navigation in Apple Maps?
