Battle of the Voice Assistants: Siri vs. S Voice (Video)

The Galaxy S III brings a lot to the table, but definitely one of its biggest features, and one we were most eager to test out, is S Voice. You’re already familiar with the technology because you’ve probably seen Siri — how could you not? — which is Apple’s attempt at the voice assistant. The Galaxy S III’s tech works like you’d expect: speak to it, and it will do its best to fulfill your request. Stuff like, “What’s the weather like?” We asked both S Voice and Siri the same questions, and got similar results — except S Voice was agonizingly slow. Ugh. A voice assistant is meant to be a convenient alternative to finding the results yourself, not something you have to wait on. Hopefully this is just a small blip before the device becomes more widespread at the end of June. To see both assistants go head-to-head, watch them battle it out in the video above.
