A new phone more than likely means you need a new armband, which is such the case in my position. The armband that I had been using with my old phone for the last few year was not the right size for my new Samsung Galaxy. So, I was excited to be asked to review this Running Armband for Samsung Galaxy by i2 Gear.
The price is perfect for this running armband. Right now it is $8.99 on Amazon. I love to see that it is under $10. I also love the pink color. I had a black one previously (with my old phone, new phone = new size = new armband) and I found it hard to find in my gym bag with all the other black stuff I had in there and the fact that the inside of the bag was black too. No more lost armband! The other improvement for me (over my old one) is that the elastic is thicker and doesn't curl as easily as my old one does. It fits comfortably. The curling made it so it would rub weird and leave friction marks on my arm when there was not a sleeve in between, so I am looking forward to that not occurring anymore,
