Today marks the announcement of iPhone 4S, not iPhone 5 as everyone was expecting. Sure there were a lot of sources that said iPhone 4S is a 90% possibility, but as a consumer we didn't want to accept that fact. We all hoped for something bigger, and more than just 1 single button on the screen to click on. But what did we get in return?
Sure many of consumers were disappointed as they were expecting more than just a few features that it brings to the table. For example, the 8MP-camera-with-a-new-lens added for better resolution.
The iCloud is a new functionality, which had already existed, but now it is all exclusive on the new iPhone 4S. But most of this was all predicted.
It is known to read and understand your commands without using your keyboard or touch screen. It is the most advanced system, which has put iPhone 4S a few years ahead of its competitors. Because of this, now you never really have to touch your screen to take care of daily tasks, except when you really want to interact with your phone off course for browsing, games, and such.
This pretty much sums up what the whole iPhone 4S is about apart from the A5 chip processor.
...BUT, how much of this new technology "per se" would you be utilizing?
By now, everyone has heard of Google Voice Commands for Android phones.
It was quite possibly the most advanced voice activated technology on smart phones for consumers to use while driving or who just want to be hands free.
Most of us who have used Android Smart Phones have utilized the Google Voice Commands to an extent. But even though there is so much more it has to offer, we as consumers never really used it to its full potential. Why is that? What is the reason for this? Simple, we like to have interaction with our phone. We find it simple to grab the phone and get to what we want with it without any extra work. The phones nowadays have fast processors inside of it, which leads us to navigate through the phone quicker. Hence, we never really used the Google Voice Commands as much.
So to sum it all up, yes the technology is impressive even though there is some disappointment about the hardware itself. However, an average consumer would never be able to find themselves at a a high comfort level using SIRI as they have other options available.
