Haha I really liked that.

I'd prefer Cortana, but none of them have anything against Google Now.

Google Now and Siri are on the same level in terms of overall use and functionality, despite what fanboys claim.

Google NOW gives me the information when I want and what I want even WITHOUT me asking and that's a big difference for me.

I can chose my favourite team and Google Now will alert me of any of their matches, will show me fastest directions to work when i leave without me asking (also it uses the much more reliable Google Maps as against Apple Maps). Also, I find Google Now easily understands my accent as against Siri. Google Now also does location reminder which I doubt Siri does.

Yea yea yea. Same ol sh*t everyone says. It's a fan following rumor on here. Like I said, they are both the same in terms of a voice assistant. Everything you just said can be done with Siri, and as far as mapping goes, don't get me started. Google Maps and Apple Maps are both inferior to Waze. Both have f*cked up numerous times. Google Maps also has a 2 star rating on the App Store by the way out of 5000 reviews.

'Yea yea yea. Same ol sh*t everyone says. It's a fan following rumor on here' why post a comment if you're not able to digest someone else's comment? smh. Also the differences I mentioned are actually the ones that matter to ME and not taken from a 'fan follower'. Stop acting like a bigoted person.

Yes Google Maps maybe inferior to Waze but its still miles better than Apple's Maps which was the original argument as you were talking about Voice assistants not maps. BTW, can you send me a link to 2 star rating on app store for G Maps as I can only see 4.5 rating.

Cortana has the intelligence of both Siri and Google now with the addition to things like people based reminders and a sense of humor, singing a song if you ask her etc. Cortana is in a league of its own.

Yea. Too bad that league is smaller than a group of 80 year old men out on a Monday bowling night.

At least everyone in that group, regardless of what hardware they have in their phones, will be able to use Cortana. Unlike a certain fruit company.

Cortana > Google Now > Siri
