Thumbs up My Armband review for our phones :)

Hi guys, I didn't find a review on an armband specific to our phones so I figured I'd pick one up and review it. This armband from eBay isn't specific to our phones, but works great.



It fits nearly perfect, just the speaker hole is in a different area but you still hear it through the material. Build quality and material is actually pretty good and I'm very happy with the purchase. Fitment is great very comfortable. Touchscreen works perfectly If you guys are interested, checkout the video and if you're interested you can click to go to the youtube page where you'll find more information regarding where I picked it up. Hope some of you find this helpful!

For those of you who are interested, I have provided the link to the seller below:

Again, i'm not endorsed or sponsored in anyway. I bought it myself and just wanted to share my experience with you guys.

how is the velcro? does it stay on pretty well? The ones I've owned never really stay on my arm well.

In all honesty i'm not quite so sure, it seems to do just fine on my arm but as with all armbands it may eventually begin to slide down your arm due to gravity and movement from running.

Default ::follow up::

finally had a chance to do some more jogging with this and it holds place on my arm quite well, the band is a bit stiffer on my arm but it surprisingly does not slide down my arm at all. Jogged about 4 miles straight and it's doing a great job so far.

I decided to pick one up after seeing the video. It's a pretty decent arm band that seems well constructed. Phone slides in and out pretty easily and it stays pretty secure around my arm during my runs. Unless you have really scrawny arms, you shouldn't have a problem with the fit of the arm band.

Since it's made from neoprene, it's going to get pretty hot and sweaty underneath after a while, especially if you're doing anything aerobic. It's a good idea to take it off after your workout and lay it out to dry off. Probably wouldn't hurt to toss it into the laundry every now and then so it doesn't get too stinky.

The combined weight of the phone and armband isn't too bad, but I find it's noticeable when I'm running. I'm probably going to alternate wearing it on each arm for my runs.

Despite the speaker cut out being on the opposite side, sounds the phone makes are still pretty audible even at half volume
