New Samsung S Voice assistant interface leaks, spews out responses much faster
Besides Samsung's S Health and WatchON apps, S Voice will also be getting a makeover with the Galaxy S5's arrival, and a whole suite of screenshots from the revamped service has appeared to prove that point.

The sources say that Samsung's homebrew voice-activated personal assistant is now much, much faster to take input and spew out responses than before. The interface has also undergone some changes, as you can see in the screens below, though the aesthetics and color scheme aren't changed that much, which we can't say is a good thing.

In any case, it's not going to be only top-notch hardware with the Galaxy S5, but seemingly every bit of the software and the interface elements have been overhauled, and the only thing to wait for now, is the complete package.

Looks Good !! Judging from that, Touchwiz also might look slim & light and hopefully faster than before !!

That's the dream ! Nice job Samsung but still nothing can beat Google Now when it comes to getting job done (including Siri and my wife).

As Google Now automatically gives me results without asking it AND it is really fast,...What's the point of using this?

In some cases it might be handy such as opening the apps and changing settings (Wifi,Bluetooth, Etc.) which sometimes takes me ages to find when I'm in a hurry.

You can also wake it up with your voice if the phone is locked.

This. I have it set up to open Google Now when I say 'Hi Galaxy' when the phone is off.

Boy boy, Sammy is ready to fight. For those who don't know, Nuance are the creators of "Siri"

Did anyone else notice that the icons are mostly unchanged ? Like the dialer, messages and contact ?

From pic 6 I can conclude that they are not going to use on-screen buttons? Let's hope so!

The resolution of the screenshots is 1080x1920 pixels. So, they are not from GS5.

Honestly speaking I will not be disappointed if it came with a 1080p screen. The note 3 simple has one of the most amazing screens out there. If the s5 came with a much brighter and we'll balanced amoled screen with a 1080p resolution I will love it. That way the gpu and CPU and the entire phone will feel much faster than both the s4 and note 3.

Yes, Siri is better than S-Voice. But it's a distant second to Google Now.
