I am using this armband that is made by Belkin for Samsung Galaxy S3. Good quality n its a tight fit,might not suit users who wanna constantly take out the phone when u are jogging or engaging in whatever activities.There is also a small slot for putting your keys

I was browsing eBay and stumbled on this: BLACK Sport Armband Case Bag Pouch Cover for LG Google Nexus 4 E960 I remembered seeing your question in the posts list, so figured I'd pass along the info.

It doesn't look like it's custom for the N4, but depending on how long you're willing to wait for something that is, maybe it'd "do" ?

You slide the strap between the hard plastic and the rubber liner and it will work well too.

kind of like this


The attached photos are of a seidio active case for a galaxy s2 but it fits the nexus 4 if you cut a new hole in the rubber for the headphone plug. The power button matches up perfect but the volume buttons are a bit off. The lower button on the case is even with the top button on the phone.

I use this setup because I hate having the plastic protector that is on every workout case I have found. Once you start sweating its nearly impossible to control the phone. It also holds the phone extremely well. I have crashed my bike on the trail several times while using this setup and have not had a single issue with it.


Who is so dumb to play TapTap Revenge while having his phone on armband?

From the other hand it can be a good excercise...

sry for offtopic...

Did you get this? How does it work? Does it fit with the bumper on it? Can you use the screen while its in the case? Any pictures would be wonderful if you could post them.

Thank!

Good looking out! Ordered one. I saw a few similar ones on Amazon before but they costs like $10-15

Anyone tried the Armpocket Extreme i-30 or have any experience with one from other devices? They are pricey, but seem to be of higher quality.

Anyone know of any waterproof ones that will fit? Living in Sydney and when it rains it smashes it down so am a bit worried about water damage when out jogging.

Look for a Galaxy S3 water proof armband. The S3 is 0.5 mm thinner, but 1.9 mm wider and 2.7 mm taller, so a waterproof armband that fits the S3 should also fit the Nexus 4 (assuming you are not using a bumper, which would increase the dimensions considerably).

I just ordered one of these as well, will post a running review after I get it sometime next week or the week after. I figured I couldn't go too wrong for under $5

Tune belt brand made for the galaxy nexus fits just fine. It's not super cheap but does the job, even with a case on it. They even sell an arm band extender for this swoll guys out there. I ran a marathon with mine and its still in great shape.
