I use Siri most when I'm driving in a new place, or in a city. For directions to a Starbucks or restaurant, or to people's houses, or to play music, or call and text. It works very well for that, and it is very easy for anyone to use.
At the hospital where I work there were two elderly ladies. One had a fairly new Android, one had an iPhone 4S. They were wondering how to set reminders... I had the lady with the iPhone push the button (the only one) and talk. When we finally found google voice on the droid, it asked us which app we were trying to reference. So I still recommend iPhone to most people.

Siri has always understood me absolutely perfectly. I just dictated this entire message here into Siri and didn't even have to change a single word. I even spoke all the punctuation and THIS CAPITALIZATION. She understands every single word I say.
In terms of productivity I run a very small business and, sadly for the person I had to let go, Siri actually replaced a part-time worker I had for admin details. She's simply that powerful and has been for me ever since early iOS 5.
I simply could not run my business without her. She's way way way more than a novelty.

I'm Australian and Siri here is fairly unsupported (most questions are responded to with "shall is use Google to search for that" Thanks Siri, very intuitive), so I turned off Siri and noticed I now have more processing power (a lot) and a better battery life.
Good voice recognition if you speak with an accent it understands but a hilarious 'lost in translation' joke when my Filipino flatmate tries to use it. Good for party tricks, useful tool...naahh.
