Yeah most of the time the ones are on display are toyed with 24/7 so it could be abuse.Went to go buy a 5G at the Apple store and when I looked at it, I was shocked at how cheap the finish looks. The previous generation was awesome...this is garbage.
Am I the only one who thinks this?
I agree here. I think they do need to stop downsizing the clickwheel. It will soon be a PITA to use.The new finish is very nice but the clickwheel on the 5G feels terrible. It's plasticky and very flimsy. The 4G's clickwheel feels carved from stone compared to my 5G. It may just be mine but it's a definite blight on an otherwise great product.
All of the ones on display at my Apple Store were not perfect. The glass was pressed in on all of them, including the one I bought, but then returned.I agree on a couple of the colors, i seen the silver, and it looked cheap, but my orange is stunnin'. The blue also looks good too.
Heres another one of my complaints. The clickwheel, feels like a generic piece of plastic! i was sorta dissapointed, but the bigger screen is nice
Complaint #3: My glass is not flush with the metal surrounding it!?! does anyone else have this problem? feels like a blade lol
I have the blue too, and I agree that the color is deeper; in anything but bright lighting, it's almost a midnight blue. Still looks great, though.I have to disagree with the OP as well. I like the new finish. I picked up a blue (best color by far) 16gb and love it. This generation's blue is much darker/richer than last year's. But then again everyone has different tastes, so if you don't like the 5th gen, you could always find a 4th gen for cheap on Amazon. Just my $.02.
Although I fit this description, I must admit that I like the 4th gen's blue too. In fact, the 4th gen blue matches even closer to my V-moda Vibes than the 5th gen I have. I was this close to getting a refurb 4th gen before the 5th gen launch, but the camera, built-in speaker and radio were just too good to pass up.It is interesting to see that through out this thread almost all of you who disagree with the OP own a 5G. Just saying...
Unfortunately, it only does video. The sensor and parts for a still camera are apparently too big to fit in the Nano this time around.i like the new finish and don't own one yet.
this is a bit off-topic but i didn't want to start a new thread.
i looked at the 5g nano yesterday in the store. i played with it a bit because i'm probably getting two for my daughters. can the camera take photos or is it just for video? that may be a stupid question but i looked around in the menu on two different nanos and no camera option, just video. i didn't know if someone just customized the menu on the display models or if the nano is not capable of taking photos.
