This product does not in fact fit the Samsung Galaxy S5 as it states. It's too small if you have earphones attached, and it doesn't have the appropriate slots in order to press the buttons on the phone. I guess for 2 for $8 I should have expected that, but I will be looking for one that truly fits and is more user friendly.

When the screen on my phone locks, I have to turn it back on in order to continue play music on Pandora. This can be a problem when I have to put my phone in my pocket when I work out - I have to turn the screen off so it doesn't press weird buttons in my pocket! My favorite thing about the armband is that I can leave my screen on, stick it in the holder, and leave the screen on so my music plays continuously throughout my workout!
It's a good product, but I've had occasional issues with the Velcro on the band not holding while I've been on the bike, and having to stop to reposition it and resecure it. It hasn't happened often enough to be irritating, and part of it may be my error in securing it in the first place, but I'd like to think it should be easy to put on and to stay put when it is on.
I have to remove my phone cover to make it fit, which is a pain, plus the arm band is too small to fit comfortably, and I'm not overweight by more than 10 pounds. I had to really pull it tight to keep it on, and it was uncomfortable.
So far, this product has held up well. I had another arm band that was coming apart at the seams and the arm band got to where I couldn't put it tight enough around my arm. This one is a lot tougher and seems to be holding up nicely.
My iPhone 4 fits into it with the protective casing. Other armbands I've used are not large enough to accommodate the protective casings, and taking them off and on is a real hassle. This product is great!
It was a gift for my teenage granddaughter and she loved it. She is using it up at college. It came in a 2- pack and she gave the other one to her room mate.
I've been looking for something that would fit BOTH my ipod AND my mobile wifi hotspot, THey both slide easily into the Aduro U-Band Sport Armband
If you work up a good sweat while wearing these, it tends to loosen it's velcro grip. It performs perfectly fine in the beginning of my workout, but about halfway through the velcro strap opens, and no matter how many times I try to put it back, it keeps loosing it's grip, until it's completely dry.
Getting my iPhone in and out of the holder is very difficult and time consuming. The hole for the headphones is also not in the right location. I have to be careful when taking my phone back out of the holder as the plastic front ripped away from the fabric after my 4th use.
