With two brushes, replaceable battery design and flexible grip, this may be just the best wireless vacuum cleaner
A vacuum cleaner is very useful - missing are the days of worrisome long strings hanging behind you. The new Samsung PowerStick Pro offers removable batteries, two brush designs and a flexible handle that allows you to perform cleaning. Its main rival, Dyson V8, has been on the market for some time - so can Samsung really offer something better and affect consumers?
Samsung PowerStick Pro Review: UK release price and date
Pro PowerStick will be out in October 2017. Until now, there is no official UK price, but considering Samsung positioned itself against Dyson, we expect it to get a competitive price. Animal Dyson V8 cost 350 pounds, while the Absolute V8 is £ 400.
Samsung PowerStick Pro review: Build quality and design
The PowerStick Pro has an innovative design – with the click of the “Flex” button, the cordless vacuum becomes much easier to use. This comes from its head, or as Samsung calls it, the “Flex handle”, which detaches itself from the main body and pivots on a hinge. This makes it much easier to clean hard-to-reach areas and under furniture.
The head of the house filters the filter, which can be cleaned. There is also a removable battery that can be interchangeable. A single charge lasts for the 40 minutes quoted - but due to its design, additional batteries can double the time you need to clean. Samsung states that an additional battery will come with a charging holder so you can charge it without having to stop cleaning: swap fast and you're good to go.
All vacuum cleaners are filled through wall-mounted docking station. If wall mounting becomes a problem, you can always install it directly through the charger.
Moving with a vacuum cleaner is a fun experience. The cleaning head rotates and spins easily, which means you can quickly maneuver around the bend. "Dual Action Brush" makes it more efficient than the Dyson equivalent. Cleaning becomes faster because you do not need to double up on stroke. The brush can be replaced, but at the time of writing, you should go to Samsung repair center to be replaced.
Unfortunately, the tube can not be set, but you can remove it from the main body - giving you a portable vacuum for the sofa or keyboard.
Samsung PowerStick Pro review: Accessories
Two attachments are provided in the Power Stick Pro package: rectangular brushes and tool gaps. Additional heads, accessories and batteries will be available at the end of the year.
Samsung PowerStick Pro review: Performance
With 150 watts of suction power, the PowerStick Pro is a powerful cordless vacuum cleaner. It will pick up a lot of dirt, which is stored in its 0.35-litre bay. It isn’t overly loud, either, even when you activate boost mode through its trigger, the vacuum cleaner isn’t overly loud, so it’s great if you don’t want to disturb your neighbours during a late-night cleaning session.
Thanks to its dual-action brushes, the Samsung provides a clear advantage over the Dyson V8 – it requires less effort to clean. And based on my demo at IFA 2017, I found the vacuum cleaner to work across different surfaces, from thick carpet to wooden floors.
Samsung PowerStick Pro review: Early verdict
Having tried the vacuum cleaner at Samsung’s booth at IFA 2017, I was impressed by the design, performance and the attention to detail. There’s not much more you’d want or expect from a cordless vacuum cleaner. I look forward to doing a full review when it comes out, but upon first impressions, this provides seriously good competition to the Dyson V8.
