I might decide to buy this as a New Year gift to myself. After trying to convince myself that Gen 4 is enough, its not. Force close and lagging on Ios 6, 256 of ram isn't gonna cut it anymore. I guess. I need some advice from you guys who currently holding the device. Do you feel that touch screen can handle long term uses? My Gen 4 used to taste my fingernail many times as i dropped it on my hands and the screen still flawless. I read that Ipad mini is sporting a thinner glass and im afraid ipod touch 5 would be the same. I love the sturdy glass on Gen 4 so do you get the same feeling with 5? Thanks in advance.
