Voice Command Activation

Does it (or any phone other than I-phone) have a one-step activation to Voice Command?

Example: with the I-phone, you simply push the lower center hardware button and you are immediately taken to Voice Command.

This is a terrific SAFETY and convenience feature. No more (1) push power button (2) swipe screen (3) press voice icon (or briefly push Search button) (4) Say 'hi Galaxy

4 steps instead of 1. Try that driving down the road.

If Apple has a patent on this, then pay them a royalty to use that safety/convenience feature.

Any other ideas or ways to a one-step method to get to Voice Command on Android?

I actually find it quite annoying as the phone always starts talking to me in my pocket...Killing my battery...
And to answer your question the S3 already does it by dbl hitting the home button.

Hooray for removable batteries! That way the phone has potential to last as long as the contract does!
lol right! I have an iPhone right now and since I have mac I love it, but the fact that you can't remove the battery sucks balls.

I was kind of wondering. I hope sprint does not take the GSM chip out of the Samsung 4 like the S3 model they
had. If they do it would not make it a world like Samsung
meant it to to be, Big Red left it in its Samsung 3. Take notes Sprint.
Sprint just got a different version, they didn't actually go so far as to open them up and remove a chip. I don't understand why Sprint doesn't sell more world phones though, you're right, it's weird.

Any word on the S4 heading to MetroPCS? If so, then I will gladly wait for the S3 price to drop to a reasonable level................
Even if it doesn't the S 3 price should still come down some on Metro.
I highly doubt it will head to Metro. Assuming the merger with T-Mobile goes through, which I think it probably will, the current MetroPCS network will be shut down within about 2 years. However, since the plan is to keep MetroPCS as a brand of T-Mobi...
