    Those are shipment numbers. More than half of the Galaxy phones shipped stay on shelves.

    Opens apps, sets timers, plays music, updates twitter, sets an alarm, turns on Wi-Fi, records voice, adds new task, adds a memo, searches for a contact, and many others.. all by tapping the home button twice and speaking.

    You either must not have this feature or you don't know how to use it.
    and you must have not tried Google voice after jellybean

    Agree, S-Voice is integrated much better with many apps, whereas Google Now is integrated much better with select Google services. As an assistant, S-Voice is much better.

    btw unless Samsung seriously put in work into s voice's voice recognition and speed it still will pale in comparison to Google voice and Google now.

    I have 4.2.2 on my Nexus 10. Google Voice doesn't do near what S Voice does. It is a phone number replacement system. It doesn't compare to S Voice or Siri.

    I bet it'll be faster to to turn on/off wifi or launch an app the conventional way rather than using s voice's slow *** algorithm(assuming its the same performance as s voice on the S3). And Google voice search can set alarms, create tasks etc also.

    Did you not read the article?

    Samsung SAID they sold 100 million. Yes they did...to retailers like carriers and shops. Where did those phones go from there? No where but the shelves where they sit.

    Nexus 10 doesn't have a phone.apk... How would you know the level of integration Google voice search has with the phone apk?

    I'm not saying I use S Voice to turn Wi-Fi on. I have an app that turns it on when it am near a hotspot and it turns it off when I leave the hotspot. Someone just asked what S Voice did that stock Android did not and I answered the question.

    And I'm sure this phone will get Key Lime Pie shortly after it's released. The GS3 was updated to Jelly Bean fairly quickly.

    Are you talking about Google Voice or Voice Actions? Voice Actions can search the web with your voice. While it's nice, it doesn't allow you to do near what S Voice does. Google Voice is an SMS/phone app.

    Google doesn't offer anything that can do near what S Voice can right now. Sorry.

    But then you don't get LTE/1080P screen/13MP camera/2600mAh battery/etc.. Your choice.

    Yes, retailers buy phones because they are in the business of letting them sit on their shelves. You are right. How ridiculous am I to think that if a store buys a phone, they won't want to sell it to someone. You should open a business of buying phones from Samsung sometime.

    I know, but I like hearing their ignorant arguments; it's actually kind of entertaining. I'm going to see what else they can come up with real quick before I go make dinner.

    Of course the s4 has better hardware specs... Its a much newer phone. That's why ill be patient and wait for the next nexus device. And btw that 1080p screen is probably pentile. Ill take an ips 720p display with more accurate colors and better whites.

    You are comparing apples to oranges. If I want to do a simple Google search, of course I would use the voice search option integrated into any Android device. If I want to do something beyond search, I have to either rely on a third-party app or use S Voice. S Voice is definitely superior to any third-party "personal assistant" app that is currently available.

    What is so amusing and ignorant about people saying that build quality is cheap and touchwiz ui is not good looking. Its subjective opinion.

    A big question is; they appear to have catered this event to the non-tech inclined, or the Isheep folk who fall for marketing gimmicks but one can wonder if they didn't horribly fail at successfully conveying that. It was a laundry list of "features" and while some are somewhat impressive, I'll betcha that the "target audience" for this show won't even use a third of those things during the time they will have the device.
    Stop calling Apple users iSheep just because we like Apple doesn't mean we are rabid fanboys ( FYI I have a Nexus 4 and I believe it is indeed better then the iPhone)

    The amusing and ignorant part is that you've spent at least two hours tonight discussing something that you thing is "cheap and not good looking." If I wasn't mildly interested in something, I sure as hell wouldn't spend two straight hours viewing/discussing it.

    The fact that they act like it's truth, not just subjective opinion solely because of their own views and ignoring the fact that if Touchwiz was so bad the S3 wouldn't have sold millions and millions of units. But that's just people being blind and opinionated.

    Pentile doesn't matter when you get to 441 PPI. And I personally like AMOLED displays. Keep fishing...
