Which iPod are you?
iPods have been popular since they are found by the company Apple Computer. There are different types of iPods, and each of them has their own features. iPod classic and iPod touch, which are going to be discussed in this essay, are not the same at all. Although they are all from the iPod family, but their features make them different.
iPod classic and iPod touch are different in some ways. First, they play the some kinds of song and video files, display the same kinds of image files. Secondly, both iPod classic and iPod touch need iTunes for file synchronizing and organizing. They both are similar in their function, only the operating system.
The features make both iPods different. iPod classic owns a bigger storage. It can store more things than iPod touch. It is controlled by a “click wheel”, in contrast, iPod touch is controlled by touching the screen. iPod classic has longer battery life, up to 30~40 hours of music playback, and up to 5~7 hours of video playback; on the other hand, iPod touch only have up to 22 hours of music playback, and up to 5 hours of video playback. While iPod touch has shorter battery life, it only takes 3 hours to charge complete, whereas iPod classic takes 4 hours to finish charging. A comparison between the screens of both iPods shows that iPod touch has a 3.5-inch diagonal screen, unlike iPod classic, only 2.5-inch. By comparing with their size, iPod classic thicker and heavier that iPod touch. Both of them have their own specific features, so they’re completely the same.
Both iPods have their distinguishing features. Different storages, battery lives, sizes meet different people’s needs. It is the customers who will say which is better, not by their mouths but actions.
