    Ipod touch 4g vs Ipod touch 3g

    right lads and lassies, need some advice from you guys who have used them and not the sales who sell them.
    had a look online but only real difference (price apart) seems to be maybes the camera and faster load time.
    so as said need some advice
    tar much
    for a 10 year old so 8 GB should be plenty

    size; 3g slimmer than 4g
    weight; 3g ligther than 4g
    thickness; 3g is thicker than 4g
    screen size; 3g smaller screen size than 4g
    3g has older technology and components than 4g
    both have apple ios 4.1 software interface
    4g has a better battery so battery life should be longer.
    4g has a far better cpu for doing lots of different multi tasking and processing in general
    both has the same storage size but 4g has got the latest flash memory chip in it so read/write will be quicker.
    memory is increased in the 4g helps when multi tasking or running the same application or doing the same routine over and over reading/writing.
    4g screen resolution and output is far better and sharper and more clear than and has a coating on the glass to try and reduce finger prints than 3g.
    sound jack on the 4g offers better depth in sound quality though output is generally the same loudest.
    features 4g offers the new extra better setup and more advanced touch input/push button, dual microphone, 3 axix gyrospcope(basically the devices knows what way it is as this is usally for the different games i.e. play them without a keyboard and jus tilt or put the device a certain way to go left or right etc), digital compass (should tell you what direction your facing i.e. north etc).
    4g has a better camera for up to 5mp resolution (maximum size that the picture can be) and offers 720 hd video, 3g did not offer hd videos but the real improve is the software to fully utilize the new camera in the 4g for better output of photos. 4g offers a front facing camera for video calls or take a picture or video of yourself.
    4g has the new bluetooth 2.1 range is increased and data transfer increased, so you can transfer files or connect the device to another device without a cable i.e. to a laptop or computer or connect the phone to your car etc.
    both have wi-fi so you can connect to a router if you know the password to get free internet.
    though the 4g has a problem with its antenna its on the side of the device and signal can be blocked by the way you hold it, therefore until this issue is fixed in the 4gs i would not reccommend buying it even with the addon of a metal conductive cover apple give you for free to make the signal not be blocked and transmit were you hand is not covering.

    cheers bud, but what i was hoping for was for someone who has used them to see if it is worth paying the extra for the 4g

    size; height wise the 4g is taller than 3g, width wise the 4g is narrow than 3g, and the thickness of the 4g is slimmer than 3g.
    weight; 4g is lighter than 3g.
    screen size, 4g has a bigger screen size than 3g.
    4g has newer technology and components compared with 3g.
    both run apple ios 4.1 software interface.
    4g is only 16/32gb storage and 3g is 8/16/32gb storage.
    4g has a better batter life due to newer battery in it and battery is cooler heat wise, 3g battery doesnt last as long and heats up more.
    4g has a better cpu 1ghz were as 3g has a underclocked to 600mhz cpu which basically means 4g is far better for multi tasking and processing one or more applications and quicker at loading and running applications.
    4g and 3g both have the same size of memory but the actually chip in the 4g uses same architecture but is a newer version look wise(height/width/dimension)
    4g has a new type of glass screen which is led backlit to offer better resolution and display which result in more clear and crisp, 3g has an older lcd screen which is not as bright and good at displaying different graphics. 4g has a new touch interface to pick up better interactivity movements, 3g touch interface is slower and not as precise at picking up interactivty movements.
    4g new features is the 3 axis gyroscope which basically the devices knows what way it is as this is usally for the different games i.e. play them without a keyboard and jus tilt or put the device a certain way to go left or right etc
    sound quality has improved on the 4g to be more crisps and give a surreal 3d depth through the audio port and audio channel it supports now but sound level is the same loud output.
    4g has the new bluetooth 2.1 range is increased and data transfer increased, so you can transfer files or connect the device to another device without a cable i.e. to a laptop or computer or connect the phone to your car etc. 3g has the old bluetooth 2.0 technology which range is far shorter and data transfer is far slower.
    4g has the new wifi technology of 802.11n which means its now compatiable with the newer 802.11n devices such as routers and laptops which offer a better range and data transfer speed compared with older 802.11b/g tecnology which the 3g only has.
    oh nearly forgot the 4g has a front facing camera, its basically an iphone 3g camera, 4g has a back facing camera to which is inbetween the 3/4g camera its impressive but not as good as the one on the iphone 4g.
    i would go for the new 4g version because its got a better spec than the 3g and it is more compatiable for linking up to other devices than the 3g version. the improved touch screen is a big bonus as its far more reliable at input than the 3g version. 4g will be better in the long term than the 3g.

    good thing that was spotted, using developer software on an htc and the mobile browser is not displaying certain text.
    i used the 4g model, its impressive to start with dont get me wrong, buts its the type of phone thats not for everyday use because of problems it has which make it feel like you have bought a ipod touch
