iPod Touch 2019 Got Poor Performance In Durability Test

Anita - Jun 17, 2019, 3:06 pm IST


JerryRigEverything carried out 3 famous tests including scratch, burn, and bend tests to check the durability of the iPod Touch 2019.

Recently, JerryRigEverything, a YouTube channel specializing in testing the durability of smartphones, had the latest "torture" of the iPod Touch 2019 to test the device's durability. With the reuse of the design of the iPod Touch line since 2012, is this device durable enough to overcome the challenge?

Beginning with the scratch test, iPod Touch 2019 still ensures a screen quality similar to smartphones on the market when starting to have a light scratch with level 6 of hardness and get gradually worse from level 7 onwards. Meanwhile, the positions not covered with protective glass such as the edge, back, Home button, front-facing camera, etc are easily scratched.

In the burn test, its screen can still recover quickly after being burned for about 15 seconds.

In the bend test, which is always the most difficult challenge for most smartphones or tablets and for a device using the design from 2012 like iPod Touch 2019, this becomes worse. Accordingly, after only a slight bend, the iPod Touch 2019 screen was completely broken.

To recall, the iPod Touch 2019 was unveiled on May 28. The device measures 123.47mm x 58.6mm x 6.1mm and weighs 88g. It has a 4-inch screen with the resolution of 1136 x 640 pixel. Under the hood, it is powered by the A10 Fusion chipset found in iPhone 7/7Plus. Additionally, the iPod Touch 2019 is available in three memory variants including 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The device still keeps a 3.5mm audio jack, which is different from the trend of using Bluetooth and Lightning connection for audio on current devices. The iPod Touch 2019 runs iOS 12 out-of-the-box and will be updated to iOS 13 later this year along with other mobile devices of Apple. In terms of pricing, the base variant with 32GB storage is priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 13,800), while the 128GB storage variant and the 256GB storage variant respectively cost $299 (roughly Rs. 20,800) and $399 (roughly Rs. 27,800).
