    Fact. (or maybe just a very strong opinion) however, I tend to believe it is a fact.

    The reasons are obvious, just pick up and use an iPod Touch for a while...much nicer than the phones.

    No opinion. Not fact. How's it a fact? It's a nice design, but better? Idk everyone will have differing "facts"

    Uh, they're almost identical in design to the 5C, only with a metal back...

    I would like it better if the camera was flush and the wifi antenna window matched the color of the device, if not disappear completely. Those are two drawbacks of an iPod compared to an iPhone.

    I just made an argument just as strong as yours. Prove me wrong.

    What is it about the iPod that makes it nicer for you? Or, conversely, what's wrong with the phones that they're not as nice?

    Iphone 5s is angular and thicker, the iPod touch feels much better in the hand. It is lighter, it is less thick, it costs less, if could also be a phone if only Apple would include the phone software. Your turn.

    read just above. that is obviously my abridged version of the greatness...

    So it's about the case corners, the thickness and the weight?

    I suppose I like more rounded edges, so I agree with that.

    The phone part of the iPhone is more than just software. It is why the phone is thicker and heavier. So it has to be one or the other on that count.

    Ipod is smaller and slippier, the iPhone 5s feels much better in the hand ans has a bigger screen, which makes it more practical to use. It is heavier, it is more thick, and thus feels better in hand. It can also be used as a music player, and CAN be a phone as Apple includes the phone software. Your turn.

    Okay, since the iPad mini is clearly larger in area than an iPod or iPhone, and anyone with an eyeball and the most pathetic smattering of spatial-relationship cognitive functions can understand that the greater area of the iPad mini accounts for its differing proportion (specifically its thinnness vs length/width as compared with the 5" iPod/iPhone form factor), there is clearly no other purpose to this discussion than trolling.

    Good luck.

    It's slimmer because there's a bigger diameter to spread the parts out with. How are you not understanding volumes here; material covered in grade school science classes.

    5s feels like it is always digging into the sides of my phalanges. No good.

    It's a case based on last year's old and stale design, but now with colors!

    And it feels cheap. iPod Touch feels solid and good. Like the iPad Mini.

    hey "smart guy", get ready for an iphone 6 with a 4.7 or 5.7 inch screen and (if Apple was smart) a design very similar to the iPod Touch.

    and yea, I been trolling MR for 6+ years, check my sig, holms...do your research.

    Touching my 5c now. Feels pretty damn nice.

    I played with co-workers' 5s all week last week. Felt like junk and were already starting to get all nicked-up like the 5 owners.
