Svoice choked twice. once because it didnt understand "yes", and once because it didnt have that feature. S-Voice was slightly faster getting things done but Siri "sounded" nicer. Id throw that as a win for android for the simple fact that it never stuttered and it could do anything the user asked.

You really need to calm that pro-Android mentality of yours. I'm sure you didn't miss the part where he spoke at the same time as the tone and thus not making it register. And I'm sure you saw that when the guy sent a text message, s voice added a question mark to the end of the text, which would mean that the reviewer would have to go through a whole series of voice commands to fix even a small error such as that. If you're in the U.S., its pretty much a tie, you just need to get use to the software and timing. If you're not in the U.S., then obviously you won't get directions for anything much. But once Fall comes in, I'm sure you'll have your clear winner
