That first screen on the iPhone is prime real estate.
The podcast app has taken a spot on my (prime) real estate that is first screen. I agree, it would have been better if they simply added these features within the Music app, but it's fine.
I'll share my thoughts regarding the SIII in this thread instead of the one I created a few days back. I got a chance to demo it today. It had a huge security device thing on the back so I couldn't properly get my hands around it to see how it feels in-hand.
The screen is pretty sharp when displaying colors, etc. Impressive for sure. But things go downhill when you fire up the browser. I made sure the brightness was set to max within the browser (it's weirdly separate from the SIII's other brightness setting). Whites look like a light grey and not white. It ruins the experience for me. It's clear to me now that IPS panels produce true whites whereas Amoled displays like the one in the SIII excel at blacks and overly saturated (artificial) colors. I don't think I'd ever own a smartphone with an Amoled screen moving forward unless they advance. Overall the screen was also dimmer than my iPhone with both at max.
I'm sure the SIII will be a hit but I think the next iPhone will be much bigger.
