I don't think this is accurate. Much depends on whether you use Bluetooth to connect to the Audio or if you connect via USB. Both phones will allow full audio controls via USB including Album art, searching, etc. When you connect via BT, you can only advance the track based on whatever list, artist, etc that you selected on the phone itself.
