    I'm new to Android and I came across both personal assistants. I currently use GoogleNow, and don't have much experience with S-Voice. Which is better and why?

    I would go with GoogleNow for sure. It seems to work better overall for me especially the voice commands. The other other big reason for me is the traffic data on Google is very important to me, and it is always seems to alert me about jams and important data while traveling.

    They are not at all comparable.

    S-Voice is a voice assistant, it will listen to certain commands and respond.
    Google Now is much more than that, it can listen to voice but also does much more.

    Here are a few links you can look at -

    S-voice sucks. There are 100s better in the play store and Google Now is better than all of them put together x3.

    Do you have to be using navigation with a destination in order to receive an alert?

    You can put your work and home address in maps or gnow and upon checking Gnow, it should automagically show updates.

    GoogleNow is much better. S-Voice..Well...Let's just say S-Voice is the younger sister of the Windows XP Search dog, cause the only thing S-Voice did for me was ask if she can perform web searches.
