Samsung Galaxy S3 w/ Otterbox Commuter,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Armband for OtterBox Samsung Galaxy S4 / S3 Defender / Commuter Series Cases, also fits OtterBox Defender & Commuter Series Cases for Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD, Moto X and many more (Electronics)
I scoured the internet for a workout armband that fits my Galaxy S3 with Otterbox Commuter for hours it seemed until finally someone pointed me towards TuneBelt. Their site has a chart that helps you determine what model you will need. I literally just got this case a few minutes ago in the mail.
It took me a few seconds to figure out the best way to get the phone into the pouch and it fits so well. The plastic covering the screen is slightly lifted from the screen itself but the responsiveness is there. The armband is very subtle and looks smooth. I'm working out after work so I might come back and give a better review once I try it for the first time.
Wish TuneBelt would provide tracking for their shipments. Other than that one con, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
UPDATE SEP 2013: I'm still using it today and highly recommend this armband! It's perfect for navigating music, answering calls, but might not be great for trying to type (never had to type while working out, text messages can wait until I'm done :P). Not sure if this will work with an extended battery though.

Can you please tell us your thoughts on the case now that you've had a chance to use it? I, like you, have been looking for hours for a case for the S3 with a commuter case. Can you please also let us know if the headphone port is obstructed by the case?
PS...I'm not sure if you know, but 8 people have found your post useful (probably all of us with the S3 and Commuters)!

Hi I have the Galaxy s3 with the Lemonzero extended battery , I was wondering if you think it will fit in it? Please let me know because I'm looking for one I can use .

Sorry, I'm not sure if it would fit. I've never purchased the extended battery. Might not have enough room for it.
