    I'm impatiently awaiting official 10.3.1 on the hopes of a good working voice control with personal assistant. I drive a lot and always remembering something I need to do and need to get it in my phone before I forget, without having to try and type it in.
    On 10.2, the voice control is just horrid, ...
    Press middle button
    'what would you like to do'
    me 'remember'....
    phone 'one moment'.............
    phone 'unable to connect to voice control server, please try again later'
    exit, restart
    what would you like to do
    me 'remember'
    phone 'the voice command wasn't understood'
    me 'REMEMBER'... 'remember'... nothing
    hit mic button 'REMEMBER' (now it payed attention)
    phone 'what is the title of your remember'
    me "sell bins on amazon"
    phone " tell vince on amazon?"

    ARG, never mind!

    Tell me, is the 10.3 assistant really better and more accurate? Does it understand better? Can you set a reminder with it that actually notifies you or do you still have to actually go into remember and see the reminders?

    'OK google' works really well on my android, I can just say "OK google" " Remind me to buy milk at 5:00pm" and I get a notification at 5:00 pm in my status bar saying ' buy milk'. I'd love that kind of control on my Z30

    The new voice assistant is MUCH, MUCH more accurate.

    Today I needed to call someone and the recognized name was not spot on (I'm Danish) but the search feature on the device picked the right person anyway. (There are however far too many questions asked before it starts dialing).

    Apple Siri is faster. Either there is an onboard engine or each word is transmitted to Apple as you speak. You can see each word being recognized as you talk - very impressive.

    It's no Siri. It won't tell you a story. It won't tell you a joke.

    But it will get the job done.

    Can it / will it remind you at a certain time, or does it just add a note in remember like 10.2?

    I can't get it to recognizing the word bin/bins, always swaps for Ben and bens... Nice catch.

    Let's try "dust bin"! Maybe some context will help...
