Yes I'm in love with Siri. I didn't need a new iPhone because I have a gently used iPhone 4 but I kept seeing the commercials and reading reviews online. Plus my iPhone is always near my side while my camera, so I like the idea of having an 8 mega pixel camera close by. So I went online for a few nights right around 9PM to see if I could reserve one. After a few tries, Jacob got through on my iPhone while we were driving back from dinner and he reserved it.
I got my new white iPhone and it is awesome. I already had upgraded my operating system on my 4 but I like the feel, brightness, and camera of the 4s. The battery life seems to be bad, but I read that's a glitch that Apple is fixing.
However, Siri is awesome and well worth the money. Sure Apple features some cool features like playing music and searching for locations nearby, but here's what I think is awesome and all done by speaking into the phone
- I can schedule calendar appointments
- I can set reminders
- Siri can read my new text messages
- I can reply to text messages by speech
- I can send email by speech
- I can call people by using their name, Siri gives me the option to choose which phone number
- It can play different music
This kind of speech technology has been around for a while but nowhere near as good as Siri (see Google Voice) However, with Siri I'd say she gets about 90% correct plus she can learn. For example, she knows when I want to speak with Mary, Siri dials her mobile.
If you havent upgraded in a while, go get the iPhone 4s. If you have an iPhone 4 ditch it and get the 4s. Rely on Siri to take care of the tasks outlined above. She is awesome.
