    Hi Guys,

    Is anyone trying out the Cortana App on their s7 / s7 edge or any other Android phone ?

    I'm interested to learn anything relevant to...

    • Impact on Battery.
      Impact on phone resources.
      How well does it integrate with the phone.

    Any other Pro's and Con's ?

    Or do you prefer Google Now - maybe because it's already integrated so works better ?

    Appreciate some don't use / like these assistants or simply forget they are available but I do like to use them for creating reminders / calendar entries etc.

    I have been using Cortana for some time on my S7 Edge with no impact on performance or battery that I can see

    I find it in some ways more useful than Google. I have my Microsoft account loaded on my work PC so if I create a reminder that reminder will also appear on all of my Windows PC's.

    I tried it when I first got my S7E. (I was coming from a Windows phone.) It didn't appear to hurt battery life or performance, but I've eventually migrated everything to Google. I really like the Google calendar app for most reminders, and I didn't use Cortana much beyond search even when I was on windows phone.
