Hmm, I've heard the exact opposite pretty consistently.

Most of the reviews say, in a nutshell: Google's voice commands are faster/more accurate than Siri in the things it can do, but Siri can perform a bigger variety of tasks.

My personal experience with voice commands is that it's very fast and accurate. Siri v2.0 will probably bring some major improvements though.

I think Google's main advantage here is that their speech-to-text engine runs locally on the phone, rather than on servers far away.

EDIT - Wait i see now, you are probably using S-Voice.

I'm using the new Jelly Bean voice commands. My bad, totally different things. Yea, Siri blows Samsung's S-Voice away. You are correct, lol.
