iPhone 4S at the Olympics. From Dan Chung’s Olympic smartphone photoblog.
The Verge’s Vlad Savov, put an iPhone 4S with Siri and a Galaxy S III with S Voice side by side, and asked them to perform a series of tasks. They are pretty much tied I would say. Siri won some rounds, S Voice won some rounds, and they both made some blunders. We are just at the begining of this technology, in five years it could be really amazing.
The Verge says that both phones were connected to the same WiFi network and the same carrier.
When you break out your iPhone 4S and ask Siri what the ‘best smartphone ever’ is, your humble virtual assistant will recommend you to buy Nokia’s Lumia 900.
As the article explains, this is because the result is pulled from Wolfram Alpha, which is a knowledge data base, based on results on the internet. Still, this is awkward.
Not only in functionality, adding a more human element to the robotic Android voice controls (that’s fine, Apple is not the owner of that idea), but the look and feel too.
This is just stupid. And then Apple is evil for suing them.
