“Galaxy S24” series review: Top-of-the-line hardware and Google’s “intelligence” are fused | WIRED.jp Latest


Only time will tell what the future holds and whether Samsung will really guarantee it. This is good news for users who want to use the same model for a long time.

What is the power of “smart functions” using AI?

There are many smart software features that come standard with the Galaxy S24 series. “Call Assist” is a feature mentioned at the beginning, which allows you to translate in real time during a call.

When you enable this translation feature, we strongly recommend muting the other party’s (and your) voice in the app’s settings. If you don’t, you’ll quickly fall into chaos. The AI ​​will often start reading the translated text, but the other person may not understand it and start speaking again.

A friend of mine who spoke to me in Korean said that the accuracy of the translation was about 65% (the opening line, “eat cancer”, is a typical example). The translation results are similar to Google Translate, and don’t fully capture the intent of the message. Still, my friend said, “The transcription on the screen was good, and it was great that I was able to have a reasonably understandable conversation in Korean.” Most users will be able to use it to get through the situation when they need to make a call in a foreign language while traveling abroad.

Surprisingly, I personally liked the “chat assist” feature. This feature is compatible with Samsung keyboards and allows you to change the writing style, spelling, and grammar of your messages.

I’ve tried using it to make sentences a little more informal or to quickly fix grammar and punctuation, but it doesn’t always help. For example, a “professional” writing style is a little too formal. If you use a “social” writing style, you will be given a hashtag at the end, but who will use this?

As for transcription, for regular interviews, I use Google’s Recorder app, which has excellent real-time transcription capabilities. In that respect, it’s great that the same functionality can be used as Samsung’s standard recording app. It was equally impressive when used for briefings.

It also has the ability to label speakers, but the labels aren’t always accurate. At the same meeting, I took notes using Samsung’s Notes app, and I’m glad that it uses AI to correct bad handwriting and create a nice-looking document with bullet points and proper formatting.

These three devices (and Google’s Pixel) are the first to feature Google’s “search by parenthesis” feature. A new feature that allows you to perform a Google search by circling what’s on the screen while watching a video.

Although he sometimes had trouble searching for famous people, he showed great ability in other areas. You can perform a more detailed search by adding text, and it’s nice to be able to perform a search without having to close the app.

These features are smart, but after trying it out for about two weeks, I was disappointed in the lack of functionality available on the Pixel. For example, even though Samsung’s anti-spam feature was enabled, I kept receiving spam emails.
