Cortana calls Siri "fat" in the latest Microsoft Lumia 830 commercial
So, the new commercial has a Lumia 830's Cortana and an iPhone 6 Plus' Siri converse for a while, and naturally, Cortana talks about some of her functions, in a natural voice, whereas Siri is represented with a cold, robotic voice, which just repeats “I got bigger, I got bigger”. “Happens to everyone this time of year”, Cortana says. No way, she just called Siri fat!
If you're interested to see how Cortana fares against Siri and the Google Now assistant, check out our test here. There were also other experiments, which aimed to explore how well all three assistants fare with more complex questions, or how deep their knowledgebases are. Check them out here and here.
The Lumia 830 may be an “affordable flagship”, according to Microsoft, though, some fans found its hardware to be disappointing, and not worth a $450 (off-contract) price tag – a 720p 5-inch display, Snapdragon 400, paired with 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (expandable to 128 GB), and a 2,200 mAh juicebox. Of course, the phone does shine in the camera department, with a 10 MP PureView camera with OIS, though, it drops the ball with the 0.9 MP frontal cam.
