Siri in iOS 6 vs Google Voice Search in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (video)

0. phoneArena 29 Jun 2012, 04:51 posted on

Both services are able to tell you the weather when you ask them, set up timers and reminders, as well as relay sports results to you with the power of natural language. In the video below from Techno Buffalo it is clear that Google's new solution is faster and the voice it utilizes sounds more human, while Siri has more sophisticated info cards layout popping up when you ask it how tall is Kobe, for example...

Maybe they should code name it "Lady" or some female dog name.

I love Samsung & my Galaxy S3, but they are the real loser here! I can't imagine how much embarassment they have right now! Lol.
New Google Voice search >= Siri >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> S-Voice

I don't hate new Touchwiz at all.. Infact, it is the most fluid & smoothest Android Skin UI out there & even the stock Vanilla ICS UI of G-nex is no exception..
And I already compared the new TW UX to Sense 4.0 and from what i gathered, the only advantages of the latter is that it has more sophisticated / professional "look" in it's lockscreen and homescreen & a better "skinned native apps", plenty of widgets (no contest), better social integration & personalization.. While the rest is for Touchwiz.. Fluidity & smoothness, less memory hog, motion gestures, plenty of software features, much cleaner App drawer coz i don't like the Sense 4.0's version.. There you go..

I'd have to disagree with you there... Motorola's ICS UI is the most fluid

lol... it came.. and it went.

now the question is when the SGS3 gets 4.1, will they keep S-Voice and disable google or just dump S-Voice through Vlingo and rename the google app S-Voice.

S-Voice is great, but yea, goog voice is definitely better.

I won't be using it any more than I use current voice actions - to send a text if I'm driving, or something equally rare.

I'm far more interested on its automated features, as I have said before an assistant should not have to wait for your input, telling you that you have to leave at at specific time to be there on time without having to ask it is far more interesting and advance.

This!

I've only had Jelly Bean on my phone since yesterday but this morning at work my secretary asked me if it's supposed to rain today. I was all excited to show off "What's the weather like today?" but when I opened Google Now it already had the "weather card" prepared for me since I used it a couple times yesterday.

I didn't get to show it off but I was still impressed...

I can see a lot of potential, I can see it in my future making shopping lists based on meals and habits, giving me workout challenges based on my routine, and so on. of this app allows devs to have their apps use this it will be a great deal

I can't think of a single way that the iPhone is better than Android.

Rich contents of applications & games.. But that's it. fluidity & smoothness is not really issue anymore.. so there you go..

Google play has 600,000 apps and the app store has 650,000. That's not much of a difference, and with project butter Android is very smooth.

I have both an Android and iPhone and use each for certain things. I do like to play games more on my iPhone, despite it's smaller screen - some of the apps I just can't get on Android. My RAZR still has unlimited data for Verizon though so I use it as a hotspot or to watch HBO/Netflix at work/when travelling.

By the way, i'm very close to getting banned and might as well stretch it over a weekend.

Name a few reasons to back up your claim. Remember we're comparing Android 4.1 to iOS 6.
