Smile New "Siri" for Galaxy S3

I really like my Siri for the 4S, but the new Galaxy version on Jelly Bean coming out is really cool (see link below). I really like the pictures that come up and clear spoken language. I hope Apple adds more photos and information to Siri like this.

I have JB on my S3 and it's much more accurate than Siri.

Google now is awesome except all the locations ended up killing my battery

went from 4hrs screen on time to 1.5 hours

I guess I should disable the traffic option that keeps telling me how far I am away from home

As mentioned above that's Google Now, not S-Voice!

Works great for me on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7.
