The armband is fine, but running with that big of a device on your arm feels..slightly cumbersome.
I havent been running long, but wanted something to track my time, distance, etc. Being the everloving Android fanboy that I am, I decided to use an app. It works great, but running with a phone in your pocket isnt fun, and using a clip on holster on your shorts does feel great either. So, I decided to get an armband. Its hard to find something that is big enough to hold the GNex, but this one fits it nicely. It will hold something even slightly bigger, but not by much. It fits securely on the arm, the film protects the screen, but will allow you to use the touchscreen quite easily. My only complaint isnt with the armband, but running with the GNex on your arm feels a little awkward, but after you get used to it, no problems. Great armband, and now Im able to track my distance/time/stream tunes from Google Play without worrying about damaging my GNex.
Best Armband I have owned

Quality material, comfortable, fits GS3 well
Almost impossible to operate volume rocker while in band on arm
This armband is by far the best armband i have owned. It is definitely worth the few extra bucks compared to some of the cheaper alternatives. The only negative about the armband is that it is very difficult to operate the volume rocker buttons while the phone is worn on your arm at the gym.

it says it is for screens that 4.3 to 4.6 yet the active is 5.0. seems to me this has just been placed on here and actually isnt specifically for the s4 active. What a gimmick.
