Android -><- Apple.

A nice comparison…reminds me of the one comparing Microsoft's voice app which was embarrassingly bad. Overall these seemed equally useful. Google a fraction of a second faster and better voice, Siri better pronunciation of names and better presentation. The important thing is neither screwed up; both seem very useful in real situations.

siri itself is may not be as good as Google search. There are some really useful jailbreak tweaks that make siri work just like and better then google search. Siri is still in beta, but apple will make siri eventually as good to better then google search

Lets see how well that android works after a couple of months of use. They slow down tremendously from the time of purchase to a few months of use. iPhone has never slowed down for me. I've had both, still say iPhone wins hands down on everything.

Sorry, but your analysis is a bit off. Multiple results from your tests were obviously incorrect.
1) Weather: No, the results began at the same time (bings). Also, Siri was printing the question, then the spoken word, then showed & spoke the results. Google Search (GS) only showed & spoke results. Finally, Siri provided BOTH more written and more spoken information than GS.
2) Reminder: 100% INCORRECT. Siri had set the timer in operation well before GS which appeared to have a processing bar "still working".
3) Athlete Height: Siri provided more (written) information than GS. You can't dismiss the written results and only focus on spoken...especially when dealing with fractions of a second for information retrieval.
4) Film Reminder: The results, or actually the follow-up question/info, came up at the same time. Since you're dealing with spoken commands, OS failed as the follow-up was point and click only.
Additionaly, your comment(s) of the results looking "as pretty" on "Siri" is a bit back-handish. The data provided by Siri is more informational and in-depth. This was true for weather, score, player info and pictures of bulldogs.
Those were some pretty big "oops" on your analysis of your own tests. Your final comment of a "complete blow-out" is 100% wrong. Based on your tests I could see giving a slight edge to GS, but your objective analysis and objective results do not reflect as much (ie, a lack of objective analysis).
If you're going to perform a publicly posted comparison and present it as objective then you should be at a higher standard than a beginners approach.
Otherwise, your analysis looks fine (and that would be sarcasm).

this review makes no sense, all he is doing is testing the server's speed and the phones processing speed in my opinion, not the quality of the assistant. how many iphones have siri queries occurring vs google handling jellybean requests? as a personal assistant i actually need it to complete operations such as setting up an appointment by voice. when he asked for a reminder to be setup the android phone just opened up an app and requiring you to fill in fields. i definitely have to hand it to google for the image search though. i really hate that siri asks you if you want to search the web when you specifically request for a search. this reviewer is obviously biased... very disappointing, i hope to see a fair review by someone soon. he barely touches on the concept of assistance like sending sms, emailing, reserving a table at a restaurant, and such.

Agreed to other comments on Siri asking if you want to search the web. I don't understand why that would (not) be an option.

At the end, Google search will win, because the main theme is to get results, which means that the one with better search functionality will end the battle!

Not all the time. Google may win at certain areas, but Wolfram Alpha data are sometimes more accurate than a simple Google Search. Also, siri tends to give out more information than what you asked for. The problem with google, is that they are so concerned with search, they forget what we need is solid info.

oh come on guys, let the video speak for itself, google clearly did a faster search than apple did. it is what it is, looks like even when you're a winner, your considered a looser. google>apple

Siri got (started) results faster in some of the video.
Siri supplied equal or more information in almost all the video.
This was an audio search. Siri continued with audio search when getting addtional details, google waited for touch interface response.
So, yes, let the video speak for itself. Making this a toss-up depending on what the viewer is looking for:
- Complete info/additional info: Siri (exs: bulldogs, weather, athlete info)
- Results starting first: Google
- Audio Search: Siri (since Google failed at follow-up)
