    Wondering what everyone is using for voice commands. Do you prefer S Voice or Google Now?

    It does for some things. If you ask it a question it will.

    Kind of. If you ask it "what movies are playing near me," it will say "here are the movies playing near Backwater, Montana" and will display the movie schedules. Or if you ask it who someone notable is, it will recite the first couple of lines from their Wikipedia entry. Stuff like that.

    It doesn't make snide remarks like siri and you can't have a conversation with it. You can do that with s voice, and, S voice will tell you jokes if you ask for it. But Google now is much faster and more accurate.

    Once you activate Google Now, press and hold the Home button and press Search in the middle. Then tell it to use Google or Google Now. Then press the menu button and settings to do the rest.

    To bad there's no S Voice S Finder widget for the home screen, right? I use spotlight search a lot on the iPhone and was hoping for something like this.

    EDIT: Sorry, I meant S Finder. I can't find the delete button to erase this post?

    S Finder is awful...huge POS.

    Google now is pretty bad with certain Bluetooth devices in the way it tries to launch Google now when you hit the headset button. I am hoping this has been resolved in Kit Kat 4.4.4 It's also somewhat weak when trying to search a contact - sometimes doesn't get the name right - it's nowhere near as smart as Siri, or the BlackBerry voice command for that matter. It's better than S Voice, but that's not saying too much.

    I have been pleasantly surprised so far with S-Voice for BT calls on my Note 4. It no longer takes up the whole screen, wishes you a good day, and asks if you're sure you want to call who you said. I'm happy with it for now.

    Can you ask Google now or S voice to navigate to an address of a person in your contacts? Example: navigate to John Doe.
