  • The Apple iPod Touch is alive and well with its new refresh in 2019...well, it's alive

  • for now at least.

  • I've been performing systematic durability tests on hundreds of portable electronics

  • for the past 4 years.

  • And most of the time these electronics survive my tests, but some of the time, like with

  • the iPad Pro, they...you know...don't survive.

  • It's time to see what happens with this dainty feeling, bright pink, 2019 iPod Touch.

  • This video is sponsored by ExpressVPN.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • You might be thinking to yourself, who needs an iPod Touch?

  • I imagine Apple made this for people who don't want to pay for a monthly cell phone plan

  • and are usually still surrounded by Wi-Fi.

  • Or for parents who want to communicate with their kids for cheap.

  • Since the iPod Touch starts at $200 bucks, it's a much better bargain than the thousand

  • dollar iPhones.

  • My Mohs mineral picks can tell the difference between plastic, glass, and sapphire.

  • And during the scratch test on this 4 inch display, we start seeing scratches at a level

  • 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7, on par with the latest iPhones that are using tempered

  • glass displays.

  • That means that the front camera up here is going to be protected from scratchesall

  • 1.2 megapixels of it.

  • You heard that right – 1 whole megapixel.

  • It's nice to see Apple competing with the flip phones of 2004.

  • There is a plastic physical clicky home button, which is nostalgically refreshing.

  • No complaints here.

  • There is no earpiece though.

  • Apple has to keep at least some separation between the iPod Touch and the iPhones because

  • they both literally do the same things.

  • You can add your own microphone and earpiece with the headphone jack....which is back.

  • Thumbs up for that.

  • It's super interesting that even though Apple tried watering down the iPod Touch as much

  • as possible, this $200 device still does 90% of what a full-fledged thousand dollar iPhone

  • can do.

  • Even the design is all metal.

  • With Wi-Fi phone calling through the headphones, FaceTime, social media messaging, and full-fledged

  • Wi-Fi internet access on the iPod Touch, I could totally see this $200 device being used

  • as a daily driver.

  • The only thing you'd lose out on is the physical phone calls, but those are all Robo spam anyway.

  • The rear camera isn't half bad with it's 8 megapixel sensor, protected by a minor metal

  • camera bump.

  • Apple's not advertising sapphire protection this time around, which is refreshing since

  • their attempt at sapphire is, well, an attempt.

  • I have another cool sapphire video coming out soon, so make sure you're subscribed for

  • that.

  • Looks like this lens has the same scratches at levels 6, 7, and 8, like we've seen on

  • the other iPhones and sapphire version of the Apple Watch.

  • It's the same weird hybrid material that Apple always uses.

  • The pink anodized coloring of the 2019 iPod Touch is pretty brilliant.

  • Pink is actually one of the most calming colors.

  • Some jail cells in Switzerland are even painted pink in order to calm the inmates down.

  • Kind of crazy.

  • There are quite a few flowers that are also pink, including the beautiful roses.

  • One thing you might not know though is that roses, if the flowers aren't picked early,

  • actually have little fruits that grow underneath the flower called hips.

  • Rose hips.

  • And the hips are totally edible, full of vitamin C. They make all kinds of rose flavored products,

  • including rose hip syrup.

  • I haven't tried rose flavored syrup before, but now I totally want to.

  • The secret to rose hip syrup is to start up a flame and boil equal weight of rose hips

  • and sugar and water until the right consistency is reached.

  • Just make sure you don't burn anything.

  • The 326 pixel per inch display of the iPod Touch, which is the same pixel density of

  • the $800 dollar iPhone XR, but who's keeping track?

  • It took about 12 seconds to go black from my flame, but being an LCD, it didn't fully

  • recover.

  • The pixels all eventually came back to life minus the evaporated oleophobic anti-fingerprint

  • coating, of course.

  • It's time for the bend testthe ultimate test of construction and build quality.

  • Remember, most phones survive this test just fine.

  • I'll start from the back, and with a subtle flex with no noises or cracks, the first bend

  • of the iPod Touch absolutely destroys the display underneath the glass.

  • There's no external damage, but the internal damage is catastrophic.

  • The screen is broken and the device is unresponsive.

  • Even the power button is not working anymore.

  • This particular bend wasn't even that drastic compared to what other phones and tablets

  • go through during my tests.

  • I'll bend one more time from the front.

  • Everything is still structurally intact, no cracks on the glass or kinks in the metal

  • frame, but the iPod Touch is still dead.

  • It has a flaw internally that can't handle any abuse.

  • The 2019 iPod Touch fails my durability test.

  • What do you think of the iPod Touch?

  • Would you get one?

  • Let me know down in the comments.

  • We'll have to wait and see if that internal design defect becomes a widespread issue or

  • not.

  • But until then, a case will go a long way towards physically protecting the device.

  • Physically protecting your device is important, but so is protecting yourself online.
