Most robotic vacuums just don't seem powerful enough to provide thorough carpet cleaning, but the Samsung POWERbot R9250 can prove that this statement is wrong. It's equipped with a powerful motor inside that ensures great cleaning results on any type of floor.
Because it's bigger than most normal robotic cleaners (14.9 x 14.3 x 5.3 inches), it may appear larger than you expect. It has a huge dustbin with a 700ml capacity. This way, you definitely won't have to empty it after every run. Due to its weight (10.54 pounds), the transition between a carpet and a bare floor isn't very smooth.
The cleaning ability of the vac is excellent. Its combo brush is 12 inches wide and picks up dirt, hair, and dust particles with ease. After having the cleaning done, sometimes it has some hair wrapped around it, but it's easy to remove. Fortunately, the CycloneForce technology helps most particles to be sucked in. It appears to be 50x more powerful than the previous Samsung POWERbot R7070 model.
It's easy to follow the cleaning pattern of the Samsung POWERbot R9250 when it works on the carpet surface: it leaves even lines, so it cleans line-by-line and doesn't leave uncleaned spots.
The R9250 has all the sensors required for smart, trouble-free navigation. The Visionary Mapping Plus technology allows it to build a detailed map of the floor surface that you can see in the Samsung Smart Home app.
The Samsung POWERbot R9250 Wi-Fi setup can be performed via the Samsung Smart Home app. As you do so, you will also be able to connect it to Alexa, Ezlo VOI, or Google Assistant and control it by voice. Moreover, it comes with a remote with a unique feature: you can use it as a pointer, commanding the bot which area it should clean (the technology is called Point Cleaning).
The battery life is perfect: during 100 minutes, it can clean several rooms without recharging. The cleaner returns to the dock automatically as soon as the cleaning is finished (or when it runs out of charge).
The Samsung POWERbot R9250 manual provides information on how to take care of the cleaner. In fact, the maintenance is easy: both the filter and the dustbin are washable. Plus, the kit includes a two-sided cleaning tool to clean and untangle the brush.
This bot is much more powerful and feature-rich than many of its analogs on the modern market. This way, I can estimate it at 9/10.
The Samsung POWERbot R9250 robot vacuum cleaner has great build quality. Instead of a classic circular shape, it has a D-shaped form to clean in corners efficiently. Its color palette is made up of white, black, and golden tones. It's taller than most robotic cleaners as it has massive wheels, a large motor and a dustbin, and a camera on its top. The display shows the dustbin fullness, Wi-Fi connection status, mode, and other necessary information. There are three buttons below the display: Auto clean, Spot clean, and Recharge.
The cleaner's interface is simple and convenient, so it gets a 9/10.
As a conclusion of this Samsung POWERbot R9250 review, I can say that this model is perfect for keeping your house clean 24 hours a day, seven days a week while you're at work. It takes very little user interaction and is quite effective at dealing with most sorts of dirt.
