Apple co-founder and former engineer Steve Wozniak’s firm and strong belief in his opinion is well known. He has gone on record with his thoughts on a number of Apple-related topics including the white iPhone 4 and his former partner, Steve Jobs.
Over the weekend, The Daily Beast published a report about a recent chat with Steve Wozniak. Wozniak talked about the battery life of the iPhone 4S, his gripes with Siri, and his opinion about the superiority of Android over iOS in many areas.
Following are the thoughts of Steve Wozniak on the battery life of his iPhone 4S:
“With the iPhone, something happened with the new OS or the new phone, and it just started running through the battery so fast. I’ve had a lot of issues with things I have to turn off just to save the battery life.”
Steve Wozniak is right. iOS 5 battery performance issues have been there since it has been launched. Unfortunately, at the moment it seems that the battery issues of iOS would not be fixed anytime soon.
After battery issues, Wozniak talked about Siri:
“I have a lower success rate with Siri than I do with the voice built into the Android, and that bothers me. I’ll be saying, over and over again in my car, “Call the Lark Creek Steak House,” and I can’t get it done. Then I pick up my Android, say the same thing, and it’s done. On the 4S I can only do that when Siri can connect over the internet. But many times it can’t connect. I’ve never had Android come back and say, ‘I can’t connect over the internet. Plus I get navigation. Android is way ahead on that.”
Siri has been receiving mixed reaction from users ever since iPhone 4S has been released. Apple is still labeling the feature as beta. What Wozniak said about navigation part is right.
Steve admitted that his main phone was an iPhone 4S, and he still thought that Apple made the best all-around handset. However, Wozniak also uses an Android device on a daily basis.
Do you agree with Steve Wozniak what he said about Siri, iPhone 4S battery life and Android? Post your comments.
