iPhone 4 vs iPod Touch 4G: Speed, Display, and Camera

The new iPod Touch 4G comes up with a lot of new hardware making it a bit closer to being “an iPhone 4 without a phone”. But really, do you know how the new iPod Touch compares to the iPhone 4?

The guys over at letemsvetemapplem.eu have conducted some tests that show that besides being a few months younger than the iPod Touch 4G, the iPhone 4 still kicks ass…

Both the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch 4G sport Apple’s custom A4 processor, though the iPhone has twice the RAM with 512MB of Random Access Memory. With that kind of info, you’d expect the iPhone 4 to boot up faster than the iTouch, right? Wrong. The latest iPod is faster than the iPhone 4, even though it’s just by a couple of seconds.

When putting the camera of the latest 2 iDevices side by side, it’s no surprise that the iPhone’s arrive on top. I’ve tried both cameras myself at the Apple Store last week and you can clearly tell the difference. As Apple Insider notes, the iPod Touch camera has a darker contrast than the video shot with the iPhone 4.

Even though the iPod Touch 4G sports Apple’s new Retina Display, it definitely doesn’t come with the same high quality display you can find in the iPhone 4, which uses an IPS display that offers better viewing angles.

Conclusion: the iPhone 4 is still the king!
