Apple Geeks.com, home of several cheap iPods, sent us in for a review an 8 GB iPod Touch 4th Gen for a review. Here's what we found.

On the other hand with bluetooth headphones and music playing the battery didn't last through a day at work.


I suppose the phone was poorly optimized for such use. I can have music playing the whole day, with wifi and bluetooth on and in constant use, and still last 18 hours straight.

So yeah, poorly optimized phones won't last long, well optimized ones will last just as long as any other media player devices.

I'm really interested in a phone that could act as a media player and that lasts entire day on single charge with 6-8 hours of pumping music through bluetooth headphones. Suggestions?

My experience with that is with HTC Desire and Jabra 3030. After 8-9 hours the Jabra battery will be dead and if you don't use the phone for other intensive things it will have 40% battery left after that 9 hours. So I get through the day but it is kinda close. I now use a 60 euro sansa clip with 15 hours battery time and find it a much better solution although you miss out on accepting calls.
