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.

what are our favorite Proporta products…and why?

Over the past week in the office we have been asking the question ‘ What is your favourite Proporta products and why?’

We asked everyone one from the guys in the warehouse to Guy our Managing Director what cases and items they liked and we have a very broad response, a few classics were in there but a few cheeky supervises slipped in there as well.

 

Have a read and see what you think, maybe it is the same as you? If it is we would love to hear from you…


Marta G – USB TurboCharger 5000

I love this product because it means that I never run out of power during my travels

Chris C – Doodle Pad Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4/4S

Creative, funny design – I remember doing drawing like that when I was a kid on note books etc. It’s more a nostalgic case which I like.

Nick H – BeachBuoy Waterproof case

If only I’d had one with me this summer when I was on the beach and a freak wave wiped out my iPhone4 in an instant. I have now bought one!

Lynnette P – My favourite Proporta product is the Ted Baker Kindle Case.

It has a really nice faux-croc design on the outside and a lovely rose print lining. I always get lots of “oohs and aaaahs” on the train whenever I use it. It’s also got a document holder that’s really handy when travelling (it’s housed many a plane ticket) and the book style means that I can still assume my normal reading position even though I’m now down wiv da kidz.

Stephanie S – Ted Baker Hard Shell Case (Garden Print)

I love the design and the quality of the case. Piece of art.

Ben T – GadgetBag

This is my favourite product because it is very handy when on the move and can store lots of valuables such as my iPhone, wallet and any other valuables I may have on me. Lightweight and stylish too.

Guy M – BeachBuoy Waterproof Case

Pure genius!

Nick W – My favourite product is the Profile Case for the iPhone 3G/3GS.

I bought one for my girlfriend, and it’s really tough and sturdy, so she can drop it to her hearts content without fear. She used to have a case from someone else that wore out after a year, but I have a feeling this one will last a lot longer.

Graham B – Aluminium Lined Leather Pouch for iPhone / Smartphone

Perfect for my needs, sleek, stylish and very strong.

Neil M – Hard Shell Case for Samsung Galaxy S2

Soft touch gives this a great feel in the hands I even think the colours great.

Diego A – USB Turbocharger 5000

think is the most portable and versatile of our accessories AND it can also be recharged easily by USB anywhere.

Hiran M – Proporta Smart Recycled Leather Pouch Apple iPhone 4S

ECO Friendly, innovative in the way it uses bamboo sheet and stylish.


Gary R – Turbocharger backpack for iPhone 4/4S

Protection and power in one.


Debbie I – BeachBuoy Waterproof Case

I really think the BeachBuoy is a life-saver. I took it on my last holiday and it protected my iPod from the salty water and the sunshine (oh those halycon days). But, most importantly, it protected this device from the sticky mitts of my two children. Oh, and as the sun went down it doubled as a vessel for an ice-cold beer.

Max D – My favourite product is the USB TurboCharger 5000

as I can’t live without my iPod and BlackBerry, and now they’re never short of power.

Sarah S – Shine case for iPad 2

The vibrant colours and bold patterns make this case stand out from the crowd.

 

 

and the winner is…Samsung

Figures released today in UK shows that sales of Samsung handsets have passed Apple to own more of the market in Q3, which runs from July-September.

 

Samsung now own 23.8% of the market to Apple’s 14.6% and in third place in Nokia with 14.4%  of the market. In Q3 Samsung sold 27.8 million units compared to Apple’s 17.1 million units.

 

With all these handsets out Proporta has it covered (literally) with our extensive ranges of cases and accessories for both the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Apple iPhone 4S as well as older models as well.

 

In the office today we have run a quick questionnaire into which mobile phones each us have, the findings look slightly biased however it’s a great range.

 

BlackBerry Curve – one
BlackBerry Torch  – one
BlackBerry Bold 2 – one
iPhone 3GS  – one
iPhone 4 – four
iPhone 4S  – One
HTC Desire HD – one
HTC Google Nexus 1 – one
HTC Desire S – one
HTC Wildfire – one
Samsung Galaxy Ace – one
Samsung Google Nexus S – one
Other – two

Pretty interesting don’t you think?

 

Already in Q4 the battle to be the best selling handset will really hot up, with Christmas round the corner who is going to win….?
