    So, some shock and awe for some of you, I've switched back to android from my beloved iPhone. I have a GS3 and rather surprisingly I like it. I do have some questions though.
    Something I desperately miss from ios is the lock screen music controls. I have tried a few free solutions but none are what I expected.
    How can I get music control on my lock screen while still being able to secure the device? Specifically, without reducing battery life or performance.
    Also, does anyone have any recommendations for me to improve the usability or performance of my phone without voiding the warranty?
    Thanks!

    You should just be able to tap the displayed music information on the lock screen, and some basic playback controls will appear. At least that's how it is on my droid 2.

    My phone is the same way. Basic playback controls are automatically on the lock screen.

    You may also find yourself downloading a different app for music but you'll still have options. I use Poweramp and that one has its own lock screen widget.

    Winamp has volume control with a locked screen.

    I don't get the controls on the lock screen anywhere except the notification bar, which won't work if I have the phone password protected.

    Google Music and Apollo will get you lock screen controls automatically.

    Hey I've also picked up a GS3 about 2 weeks ago comming from an iphone 4. I use Tactile Player to control music with the hard keys. So far I'm liking this phone too.

    +1 for Poweramp, for a few bucks its got a lot of features including widget and lock screen control options.

    Why not use GoLocker?? you can enable the music controls (play/pause, next, prev) from GoLocker settings and you will get a music icon on the top on ur lock screen...
