Of all the companies that have decided to take on Apple’s voice control personal assistant, Siri, Aisha from Micromax is one that really caught our eye.

We asked both Siri and Aisha a bunch of questions. The results were quite surprising, especially since the iPhone 4S costs Rs. 45,000 where as the Micromax A50 (one of the cheaper Aisha-bearing Micromax devices)  costs Rs 5,000.

Talking to both the voice controlled personal assistants was a treat! The answers were the most unexpected, bordering on hilarious.

We asked both the devices the following questions and received interesting answers – as Aisha seemed to be more accurate than Siri, and was definitely quicker, almost regardless of the question. Check out our test results below:
