    Recently swapping from an iPhone, a feature I really loved was the ability to double tap the home button and skip/reverse songs from the lock screen without having to actually unlock the phone. Does the Galaxy have any such feature?

    The stock music player doesn't, but you can download doubletwist which has this ability. I use doubletwist because of this, and also because it can sync all your itunes music and playlists easily (I also switched from iphone).

    Good choice, it's a great phone. It takes a little more work to customize and get it working just the way you like, but that's part of the appeal. I love it so far!

    You can enable that in Winamp as well from the general settings.

    Gotta recommend PowerAMP, as it's the only full-featured media player with true gapless playback on the market right now. It's a touch expensive ($4.99 I believe) but it's definitely worth it. Heavily customizable, and still under constant development (the current beta even supports landscape lock screen controls.)

    I also recommend power amp. I have also found that if you use double twist to import music and playlists that power amp captures the playlist in its software.

    My stock app allowed me to do this. It had a cd at the top of the screen which I pulled down and I could change the song or pause.

    yeah I had the same issue as I switched from an iPhone too.I tried the double trust player but I realized that if you so use it, the pull down notification play buttons are gone. so you'd have to sacrifice that, do I just went back to the stock music player

    I used the button to make voice calls. Is there any way to do this on this phone?

    I have rooted phone with UNNAMED ROM 1.1.0. On it you can actually hold volume down or up button to switch between songs, and this is all with stock player. Very nice feature.
