Another thing that you can do in the lock screen is viewing missed calls to allow you call back the number or send a message. This of course will be able to save your time because you can view the missed call in a single tap.

How to view, send message and call back to a missed call number from the lock screen?
Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Tap the Missed call icon in the lock screen then move it in any direction to display call details.
  2. The call log is displayed and missed calls are identified by the Missed call icon  next to the number.
  3. To call back the missed call number by swiping it to the right.
  4. To send a message swipe the missed call number to the left.

For the record, this step only works if you use the basic swipe methods to unlock the screen. If you use another methods, such as pattern, PIN or password, you need to unlock the screen first, then viewing the missed call icon through the notification bar or Phone app. So, hope this helps :)
