Hi Mike. Yes I've heard good reviews about this phone. How would you dictate a 
message on that phone? Is there a dictate button on the screen somewhere? I 
think Google's voice recognition is much more accurate than the pathetic IOS 
version of it. I know this as I once owned an Android phone and I use to 
dictate messages by holding down the volume up key within the Mobile 
Accessibility app and I use to get a few sentenses back. I had to select the 
one that was correct.
