Pros:
It's really cheap, the prices in mobile shops are hilarious compared to this.
It's OK not only for iPhone 4. My Nokia N8 fits very well and hold tightly.
Material doesn't slide of the closes or naked arm.
Cons:
If you have neck strap connector attached to mobile like me, you will be in a bit of trouble. There is not enough space for it so you have to squeeze it either at the bottom of the phone or side.
You can't put your phone fully in if you want to use earphones, because top closes audio output and there is no hole for the audio jack to come through.
I don't have an iPhone 4 so can say this only about N8, but I believe iPhone 4 would have same problems as its pretty much same size.
You can't put it below your elbow unless you have huge arms.
Other:
You can unlock N8 without removing it from armband, but you can't lock it, unless you have additional software installed - there is no way to reach physical lock button on the side of N8.
Build quality is quite poor, loose ends of threads, etc.
Bottomline:
I'll haven't tried it running, but for the price I believe it will do just fine.
