    And do you still have it as you double click the home button? To be honest I haven't used it yet

    Yes I use it, it works well with my BT headset and my Gear 2. I'm finding that it works much better than on my previous Samsung phones.

    You can disable it in the Developer options in the settings. I have left it on though.

    I have discovered it does use up the battery even if you don't use it. So you could save some battery use by turning it off.

    I just go to S voice settings and uncheck Open Via the home key, pretty much uncheck everything.

    I use it because it works very well in car mode. Better than Google Now for me, actually.

    Can anyone tell me the benefits of using S Voice vs Google? I feel like the do the same things so I ended up disabling S Voice.

    I use Google and not S voice. I'm not sure of the advantages but it seems to understand my speech better.

    There are a handful of people (including myself) who have a bug on their Google Now app. For some of us, when you say "Navigate home," instead of pulling up maps and giving you directions home, it's pulling up search results instead for "Navigate home," which annoyingly enough comes up with a number of hits on forum threads of other people experiencing this same issue haha. I hate this.

    S Voice seems to work better than Google Now with voice recognition, in my experience. It also open and play music better than the Google Now, in my experience.

    How do I get S-Voice to talk back to me? There used to be a button on the bottom left of the screen on Note 3 that could toggle talk-back on and off. I don't see it on Note 4.

    Open S Voice, tap the three dot menu button, the top selection is Enable voice feedback. If it is already enabled the selection changes to Disable voice feedback.

    I tried it. But the Enable Voice feedback option is grayed out.

    I've been trying out google now and s-voice. So far I'm having more luck with S-voice. I've been told and have read that google now is supposed to be better but whenever I try the "ok google" voice activation, it works about 30-40% of the time. "Hi Galaxy" with S-voice works about 70-80% of the time.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to get either to open a music player and play a certain artist or song that I have stored on my phone. No luck with that from either.

    I checked the Developer options & can't find where you disable S-Voice. Please enlighten me.

    Not very much as they don't seem to respond very well to their wakeup/listening commands. I am quite sure it's something to do with android 4.4.4 and hope it is remedied when lollipop makes it onto the phones..

    No. It's been disabled. It's not even worth opening. Samsung do many things right but S voice isn't one of them. Google now is much better.
