I actually couldn't find this anywhere so excuse my ignorance if this is already a feature: I want the phone to be fully locked, when I lock it. When a phone call comes in and I pull the phone out of my pocket, it mutes the call even if the phone is locked. Let handsfree accessory handle handsfree stuff :)

While this is indeed a valid usecase, I think it should be optional - when you are listening to music, the screen is often locked but you want to change the volume based on current song & background noise level.

Volume should not be adjustable by default when locked.

This is a security issue, imagine someone muting your ringtone volume when you expect an important call because you went to get a coffee or something.

Audio/playback volume should be settable from the lockscreen tho, when playback is happening.

I think there should be a menu item in Display options to select in which cases the display turns on. For me it's really nerving when screen turns on just because of adjusting voulume. Besides it is also a waste of energy.

another option in "Display" would be to set wether the display should unlock/light when Headphones are plugged in/out. More features to the display section!

Thank you, MartinK for the insight. I think you're right about the volume adjustment. Then maybe we could have option disable/enable muting the call with volume rocker?
