S VOICE on the Samsung Galaxy S3 has told us that it thinks the HTC 7 Trophy is the best phone in the world, not the Lumia 900 as voted by Siri.
We did a hands-on review of Samsung's just-launched voice activated digital assistant, S Voice, and after the usual round of weather report and driving direction requests, we couldn't resist asking it, "What is the best smartphone?" Its response? The HTC 7 Trophy.
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy S3 didn't specifically promote HTC's now-ageing Windows Phone handset. Instead, it brought up a list of the best rated phones from Best Buy US, a list which also included the Iphone 4S and, of course, the highly-rated Nokia Lumia 900.
If it's anything like Apple, Samsung will no doubt tweak S Voice so that the Galaxy S3 is the best smartphone, even if it doesn't manage to crawl to the top of Best Buy's handset rankings.
