New Motorola ads pit Siri vs. Google’s Voice Actions

Wed, Feb 29, 2012


At this week’s 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Motorola released three commercials going after Apple’s Siri by showing it in a heads-on competition with Google’s Android voice action feature on three Motorola smartphones, the Atrix 2, the Photon 4G, and the Electrify.

In this clip, which showcases the iPhone vs. the Atrix 2, it takes Siri much longer to complete various tasks, such as sending a text message and displaying navigation instructions. Curiously, Siri, in the video below, takes a considerable amount of time to realize that a voice query has finished. I should note that Siri, when I’ve used it myself, doesn’t display this type of lag and typically begins processing soon after I finish speaking.
