The title says it all, OnePlus, the company calling their upcoming phone “the no compromise smartphone”, is currently taking a poll which started earlier this morning. The poll is asking the public in which way they would want to wake up the OnePlus One which is the no compromise phone I mentioned a second ago. To be more exact OnePlus wants to know what voice command you want to say for your phone to wake up, they offer three choices, “Okay, OnePlus”, “Wake up, OnePlus!”, and “Alakazam”. Not surprisingly “Okay, OnePlus” sits at the top by far, currently holding over 75% of the total votes.

It seems that voice commands are becoming more and more part of Android news lately, ever since the Moto X and the Google Now Launcher it seems that everybody wants to talk to their phone. Voice commands are definitely the future of interacting with smartphones and other electronics and they are only going to become more precise and allow us to do more as time goes on but why aren’t more smartphone companies adopting them? Motorola is really the only smartphone manufacturer that has done voice commands right making them work mush better than other smartphones and allowing you to do things like wake the phone up from sleep with them. Even the Google Now Launcher only lets you use voice commands while your on a homescreen. We need voice commands to work everywhere, even when the phone is asleep. There is nothing stopping manufacturers from doing so, Motorola implemented “always listening” voice commands with a Snapdragon 400 processor and we are way past that right now with processors like the Snapdragon 800, 801, and 805 that could easily pull this off.

What do you think about voice commands and their growing part in the smartphone world? Also, what do you think you should say to wake up the OnePlus One smartphone? Let us know the answer to both of these questions in the comments below.
