    This guy is using Cortana on Android and basically eviscerates Cortana for all it's failings. The logical thing for me would have been him testing Cortana on the Windows 10 Mobile on the latest Windows 10 mobile device released, the Idol 4S...

    Dead or not is besides the point. He didn't test Cortana, he tested a half baked Android Beta Cortana.

    Where is he actually supposed to buy a new Windows phone to test with? Plus he tested the application as provided by Microsoft, maybe take it up with them for releasing half baked software.....

    Cortana on my idol 4s is a mess. It's a mess on my iPhone too for that matter.

    The review was biased, I mean who says he hasnt used Windows 10 on pc since ages, tells me his technology expertise. but not a fan of cortana either, it sucks on my w10m and w10, may be works well in US

    i tried bixby, and boy bixby can do alot of things within the OS. I know Cortana is an AI built to learn about us. but microsoft should have made Cortana better by now. I mean, here we go again, Microsoft indroduces a great feature, but someone else made it even waaaaaaaaay better. and Microsoft right now is waaaaaay tooooo sloooooowww improving it. Just can't really tell by now, what specific area is Microsoft focused on with Windows 10. Creators okay I got that. Gamers, understandable. but what about regular consumers?

    I would bet money a lot of what is making Cortana inferior on Android/iOS is the fact that it's a third-party app. This is why MS is going to regret giving up on mobile. Native apps/programs on their respective platforms will always be given more freedom and power than those of apps/programs from rival companies.

    Do you think Apple would ever let a google app have the same rights/power/freedom to hook deep into the OS and integrate as well as Apples's own native app? Never. Ditto for Google.

    Try as they might, MS will ALWAYS be at a disadvantage to get Outlook/Bing/Groove/OneDrive/Cortana/etc as solid, stable, and integrated as the native, competing apps. And because of this, you will slowly see the MS faithful give up as the start using the native apps just because they work just a little bit better.
