Ipod 5th Gen or Iphone 4?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I'm thinking in buy a apple device for test my games.

In my country, the Ipod 5th gen is cheaper than Iphone 4.


So, one question:


If I buy an ipod, the results are the same as the iphone?

The only difference that I saw is the 3G and call.


Thanks for all,

I think an iPod touch is good enough to test. I think the only functionality differences might be stuff that's phone related, like testing what happens to your app if a call interrupts it.


The hardware's typically the same. iPod Touch 5th gen is actually better hardware than iPhone 4 (more ram and faster processor). The 4s seems to be on par with a 5th gen iTouch. iPhone tend to have better cameras as well. Oh yeah, I guess the big difference is the screen whereas the iPod Touch 5 screen is the same 4in as iPhone 5, and the iPhone 4's have the smaller screen. An annoying thing to have to test for...


Personally I use a 4th gen iTouch for testing, its pretty similar to an iPhone 4. Works for me!

You can safely use an iPod instead of an iPhone, they are virtually identical when it comes to html5 games. The iPods are generally slower (lower power GPU / CPU) but that isn't a bad thing, at least you know if it runs well on them it will run even better on an actual iPhone.
