Siri vs S Voice – Proporta gets chatty with Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S

Since the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3, we’re all been dying to get to know Siri’s new rival called S Voice that features on this new smartphone. Voice control has become extremely sophisticated in the last few years and is constantly improving, but which is best: Siri or S Voice? We carried out a quick review of the two computer voices and filmed a couple of quick questions to see the responses from both the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4S.

S Voice
– UK female voice
– More function and less personality
– Can perform searches based on geography in UK

Siri
– UK male voice
– Mixture of function and a cheeky character
– Cannot currently perform geographical based tasks

What happens when you declare your love to a robot voice?

Can Siri or S Voice tell us what the meaning of life is?

We think it’s fair to say that both voice control systems for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S can be extremely helpful for performing certain tasks, but there is still room for improvement in both. Siri’s cheeky personality is infectious and it’s often easy to forget that it’s not a real person you’re talking to. It will be interesting to see how S Voice develops and grows alongside Siri in the future (how long before they can make a cup of tea for us?).

You can find iPhone 4S cases and Samsung Galaxy S3 cases at Proporta today.
