Your thread is about the voice recognition being "Horrible" ( which I totally disagree). Then you start of by saying your not a troll. Then you say this:
"is there anything in this phone\os even come close to android or IOS features?"
Come on now. :dry

Question for you: why did you get the 920? If there is nothing that "comes close" to Android or iOS, then why not just stick with those? Your post is obviously meant to stir up controversy, which is why you felt the need to preface it by saying you're not a troll.

my statements are not just my own and they are facts for a large portion of users of this forum. I want wp8 and this phone to succeed or I wouldn't have purchased it. We are all here to support these devices and this platform but there's no reason for sugar coating the issues. If I didn't want the phone I wouldn't be waiting 2 weeks for Att to send me a replacement. At this point there shouldn't be this many issues with the is or the device. Microsoft and Nokia obviously rushed them just like MS did with windows 8 and xbox360. Pump it out and patch it later. That's sad.
. Apple seems to be going down this route as well and their quality is diminishing. Samsung looks like the only competent OEM right now.

Joey. Read your first post. That is what has people upset. Its that simple. Almost nothing you said there is objective. It doesn't matter what your intentions are, you came off as a person trying to get a rise out of people here. And it turns out you did. There are better ways to have approached the problem. Accept that and move on rather than trying to defend yourself here... Mu two cents.

As far as your rushed to market comment, I agree. On ghag same token people here, myself included, were upset that the phone wad announced and then everyone was keeping a tight lip on a launch date. The point where they tripped up is that they wanted to get the phone into the public eye before apple and google got theirs out. All the while they had issues unresolved, as I think is evidence of them pushing the release dates out so far, and then of course the gross lack of purchasable handsets. The market is so competitive that it just seems to be the nature of the beast anymore.

by me saying the voice recognition. And other features are horrible are bad got people defensive? That's their problem. There's no reason to be defensive. Its simple the truth. If people can't take the truth then they have issues. I'm not going to coddle anyone or sugar coat things. I like the hardware I just wish certain aspects worked or were better than what was promised.every post in these forums when someone says they are disappointed with the outcome of the phone or wp8 they get slammed so unless you have a perfectly working device along with features you can't express your displeasure while other can have orgasms over their happiness . Lumgasms? Lumiagasms? Lugasms? Hmmm

Also, when you have to open your post with "I am not a troll", that says a little about what you are saying. Had you left those two parts in question out nobody would have issues. Look at the responses and see for yourself.

Listen to yourself. Your thread title is about the voice recognition being "Horrible". Then, you slowly but surely morphed the topic from voice recognition to pretty much a laundry list of complaints. Yes some people have less than optimal battery issues, but that's why there is a thread dedicated to that with people genuinely trying to help each other by posting suggestions that actually work and help. And it's the nature of the beast that people with issues are more vocal. I'm willing to wager that there are far more people without issues than you might be led to believe.

I'll give him this though, might not have to do with voice recognition but, Speech to Text through a bluetooth on this phone is vastly different and I would say time consuming compared to my Titan II.
On my Titan II, i received a text, lady repeats the message (ask if I want to respond or ignore), I respond (ask if it's correct and would like to send) done!
On my Nokia 920, I receive a text, there is a 2 second delay before she reads, there is another option now which I feel doesn't make sense, I respond (ask if it's correct and would like to send) then done. It may look the same but there is a difference between the two phones.

@OP ... I don't mean to sound defensive, I just entirely disagree with your premise. I posted a few weeks ago about an experience I had with Siri vs. Windows Phone. And, in fact, Siri failed every attempt to get it to do ANYTHING. Windows Phone, on the other hand, did everything I asked. It's just about knowing its limits and what the commands are. It's not intended to be a free-speech engine, and that seems to confuse people. Pay attention to the "What Can I Say?" instructions.
Now that said, I also use it to dictate text messages, and while as a grammar Nazi I become infuriated by it's inability to grasp the concept of punctuation, I find the actual word recognition to be very good... but you do have to speak clearly. Slurring your words or speaking quickly will trip up any speech recognition... in other words, you can't speak to it like a teenage girl (sorry for the stereotype, but we know what I'm describing).
I haven't read every post on here thoroughly yet (am working on it now), but let's make sure we have realistic expectations, understand how to use it, and be specific with the problems as we continue. :)

I find that the voice recognition on the 920 is poor in noisy situations but good when there is little background noise. I tested this side by side with my iPhone 5 in the car and the Nokia 920 couldn't understand 10 attempts at the same dictation while the iPhone 5 picked it up first time perfect.

If I were going to change anything, I want the ability to give my command while she's reading directions. I feel rude cutting her off, but I don't want to wait for her, lol.

I've only used Siri once, and it was an epic fail (see my previous post on here where I link to the details) and have never used it on Android, so I'm not going to engage in Apple/Google comparisons. I'm just going to voice my usage for Tell Me.
I have had issues with Tell Me doing voice dictation for text messages if I speak really fast or stumble a lot in the message with "umm's and uhh's" and such. I also have issues in low signal areas with the performance of it processing. I typically think my message through BEFORE I say "reply" and start speaking... that helps a lot. I distinctly say words that I know it might not hear well... like you're/your and her (example I encountered yesterday).
The long and short of it is this... voice technology has never really caught on for a reason. It's still complete and utter crap compared to direct input means, but it's great when it works.
