So how does everyone like their S3 so far? I really like it so far but notice a few differences that I do not like from my previous I phone. I realize that S Voice does not work like Siri. I was testing it with things like "Closest Mcdonalds," or "McDonalds," and Siri would the info for the closest McDonalds but S Voice has trouble and just asks if you want to search the web. I have a problem with finding really any type of establishment with S Voice, really it is just good for commanding my phone to do something.
What does everyone else think?

Re: S Voice
It's also all about how you ask it. Your wording has everything to do with the results. Asking it "What day is Christmas next year" might give you a totally different result from "What day is Christmas in 2013", so you have to experiment and learn the quirks.
That being said, it still feels like more of a novelty, but so did Siri to me.

Re: S Voice
I use it to voice dial, but it's buggy. If I summon it from the BT headset, it pulls up the s voice screen then reverts to the home screen before I can issue a command. Usually works on the second try. When it stops altogether, I have to un pair and re pair the headset. I also tried tried to send some texts with it, and it did a credible job.

Re: S Voice
I had issues with S Voice where it would just quit talking when I had it in driving mode for text messages. Also, if I said "REPLY" it would never do anything.
Downloaded the latest Vlingo BETA and it appears to be built on the same framework as S Voice, but text messaging integration works much better.

I think Voice S is good for commanding the mobil to do something, but to find any type of information only works in English. I can search «What's the price of one gram of gold in euros?» and it will come up with the correct answer; but if I ask «¿Cuanto vale un gramo de oro en euros?» it just asks me if I want to search the web.
I understand after looking into it that Voice S uses Wolfram Alpha and Wikipedia for the answers in English, but in other languages it doesn't use anything like this. I'm disappointed that they said it was localised, but it turns out it only works as expected in English.
