    Default Re: is it just me or does the voice recognition SUCK!!

    Mine sucks as well on the Samsung S4, which I have had since the Fall of 2014. One of my colleagues has the same problem with her Samsung S4. I have been using voice to text for years and on various different phones. My last several phones were motorola Androids, and voice to text dictation was much better, but not nearly as good as on my i-pad. I have gone back to my local Verizon store, where the sales people are very helpful, and they changed several settings, but the dictation is no better! The only Apple product I own is an i-pad, and I do not want any more Apple products due to the proprietary nature of Apple, but I am serious thinking about getting an i-phone solely for the dictation. I tried dictating on a friend's i-phone, and it was almost flawless.

    It seems to force us; if activating from a headset or automobile interface to the S-5 forces us into Google voice recognition. It about the worst I have seen relative to the latest voice technology; which is generally acceptable after the system gets used to our voices and cadence. If Samsung and Google did not force us to default to their software and use an alternate choice as the primary it would OK. As it now stands; you are correct; it is horrid!

    Same exact issue. I just went from S2 to S4 and it was much better on the S2 and that was with Sprint! Verizon S4 for some reason is severely lacking.

    It works like a charm on the S3 says the OP, so it's a valid question.

    I am coming from an iPhone 4s, now on android with republic wireless moto x. IPhone vr failed half the time I used it with huge delays but when it worked it was very good. Better on WiFi with sucks because I usually use vr when I am away from home. On my bike text replies could be frustrating.

    Android won't even pause the music when dictating which is a new bug introduced with KitKat I see but never fixed.

    Android is very fast and never fails to connect to the server like iPhone but it is also very inaccurate at times. But it sounds like this will vary from phone to phone and version to version. It seems like you will never get bugs fixed on the given device and can only hope it is fixed in the next version of the phone.

    I too am having major recognition errors with my GS5! I have used an iPhone 6+, and it is nearly perfect! I still have another couple of days in my 14-day trial period. I am thinking of returning it, but want to stay with android. Anyone have suggestions on how to improve the GS5 speech to text feature? I love the phone. The recognition is the only problem I have. Very disappointing.

    I have always been amazed at how great the voice recognition works for search, text messages and taking a note! It recognizes my voice well even with a southern accent!

    The built in voice command on my LG sucks too.
    The google voice search works great.
