    Seems to be causing severe lag for display on/off. Disabled.

    When you say severe delay, how long are you talking about? I don't notice any difference

    Svoice is a joke.

    I have my home button to go to Gnow but I tried using S for switch s voice in the play store to use Gnow instead of Svoice for my BT needs. It works but G search keeps my BT active after a call. I call someone, Gnow/search displays and calls the contact. When finished it goes right back to search and activates. I have to be quiet for 10 seconds till it times out or it tries to display information for things I say. Annoying. I give up using BT correctly with Samsung products.

    I just started messing around with this today. Seems like it could be handy. I will just have to remember that it's on now. It's also cool having the voice controls for other things as well like the music player, camera and answering calls!

    Yeah and s voice always takes too long. As somebody who uses maps on my phone Alot I think this will be useful when on the road

    Has anyone had any problems with the S Voice automatically coming on now? I have noticed it a few times. When watching TV, in the office. There was always people talking and such, but no one ever saying specifically Hi Galaxy

    I was watching this video on my laptop and it turned on S-voice. Funny! Now that I've done the mod, it turns on Google Now (unfortunately with the lock screen in both cases as I haven't been able to turn that off since FoxFi forced it on me).

    Edit: I've changed the lock screen to engage after 30 minutes. That helps...a little.

    Second edit: Fixed the lock screen issue. It's gone.
