My newest purchase - Ipod 4 vs Ipod 5......

For Christmas 3 years ago my parents bought me the newest Ipod - the Ipod 4. And since that day it's been one of my favourite things.

However, while in Florida last August, I dropped it it dived from my hands. The front facing camera cracked and small shards of glass occasionally fell out.

I did look at quotes for replacing the screen, but I'd heard  some horror stories where things didn't get returned or they didn't work. So while the Ipod was still working I didn't bother replacing anything.

Although, in the last few weeks it's been very slow and crashes whenever I open an app, and if you know me, you'll know I'm always browsing Instagram. But, I couldn't really go on the aforementioned app because it always crashed.

Getting a new Ipod then became my mission.

So last Saturday, after looking online I decided to go with a black 16GB Ipod from Tesco. I got it home, took it out of the box, started sorting everything out, then realised it had no camera on the back. I was devastated. The one thing I was most excited to use it for, I couldn't really. It had a front camera, but I wasn't going to post just 'selfies' on Instagram.

So I rang customer service and asked if I could return the Ipod for a full refund. They said I could, and back it went.

I then went in a multitude of shops looking for the 32GB ipod - that has the rear camera- but unfortunately there weren't any in  stock and the shops were closing.

So Sunday, I went to PC World originally planning on purchasing the pink one, as there weren't any white available. But, in the cupboard I could see my ideal white Ipod. I paid for it. Took it home. And have been Hooked since.

Ipod 4th Generation - Ipod 5th Generation
The 5th generation has a 5MP rear camera, a feature I've been absolutely loving. For reference I took the above photos at the same time, in the same lighting on the same day. Also, neither have been edited, so I think you'll agree, the Ipod 5's camera is so much better!

Here are some more photos I've taken with the new gadget.

Finally, I'd love it if you could all follow me on Instagram - Beccasfashionandlife
