    i am curious.

    Siri fails to understand what I want 8 out of 10 times. Even simple tasks like creating a reminder seems impossible.
    For a while I thought maybe i am mumbling or something. But recently my girlfriend bought the Pixel Phone and I tried OK Google. It just works - almost every time.

    Anyone else having the same issue?

    Turn off all alarms

    and

    Turn all the alarms off

    Having used both ok google is superior to Siri by a significant margin. I really enjoy my iPhone but I would like to see Siri improved. It is lagging behind the competition.

    Same here. I'm most impressed with how well Siri transcribes messages while I'm driving. That is no mean feat with all the ambient noise.

    Do I wish Siri could do more? Sure. I'm also confident it's coming...and soon.

    That's actually true - it transcribes messages really well. So it understands the words I say, but it can't understand when I want to know what appointments are coming up. Weird.
