    Ambrown,

    WOW! That is an amazing list. I really appreciate you spending the time writing all that out. It is a big help and a huge time-saver for me. Plus it makes me feel more comfortable making the switch to Android.

    Since I have an iPhone 4, I don't have Siri, so that is not a loss to me. Plus I have used Vlingo on my iPhone.

    Again, thank you for the great amount of information. I hope to pick up my S4 this evening.

    Thank you to everyone for the great responses. I really look forward to getting my phone and start using Android.

    There's an app that will emulate the IOS software look. Wife's coworker just upgraded from an older Iphone to the SG3. After two days of being lost she returned to the Vzw store. One of the workers downloaded an app (name unknown). The phone now looks exactly like an Iphone. However, she can do talk and data at the same time.

    The S4 comes with Svoice which from what I can tell from playing with my kids iphone 5 is very similar to siri and works well

    From what I've seen S-Voice isn't even close to Siri. But hey, that's what's great about Android; you can use the stock apps that come with the phone, or you can use third party apps if you prefer something different.

    Personally I think the voice controls on all platforms need some major work. The only thing I can reliably use them for is setting alarms and navigation startups.

    Thanks for all the information collected in this post, it is very useful.
    Personally, I believe it is very difficult to grasp the differences. You just need to try it out!

    I've seen tech-savvy people loving the change from iOS to Android, but I've seen (even some of the same) people change from Android to iOS and say: "wow, it's so much easier".

    It depends on your personal tastes, but I say Android all the way :)
