I'm closing in on the Turbo as my next phone and would like some feedback on the voice command usefulness as it relates to phone functions. I drive around a lot for my job and hands free functions are a priority for me. I've stopped using my contacts dialing function for my current GS3 since it's so awful. I just wait until I hit a stop sign, stop light or similar to pull up a name on my contacts list and dial it. Would be nice just to say "dial whomever" and the phone jumps on it.

Text read back and send would be great too. I haven't had a Moto device since the original Droid but they seemed quite good with the voice commands back then.

All of that works great with Turbo. I can say "send text to", " call", "remind to xxx me when I get to...", " set alarm for...". It will also read texts, incoming calls, etc.

Yep, same here. Works great, and like the OP, I drive around quite a bit for work.

I can no longer get my turbo to remind me of to do tasks. Any ideas? Some of the commands work but most of the time it just does a Google search and lists my options for websites. For example I say "remind me to get milk tonight at 7:00". This used to work. Now it never does it correctly.
