Looking as pretty as the first version, the Samsung Bespoke Jet AI is almost the same. It features a more powerful suction, 280W, up from 210W. It also packs what Samsung calls AI Cleaning mode, which can increase suction power depending on floor type. I do want to point out you that Dyson's vacuums already do this without any AI mention.
- Swappable battery (comes with two)
- Clean Station has 2L bag
- 280W suction power
- Accessories: Pet Tool, Extension Crevice Tool, Combination Tool, Flexible Tool, Accessory Cradle
As mentioned, the Bespoke Jet AI looks great, especially the dock. If looks matter, then this vacuum will not look out of place in any modern home. The Clean Station dock gives this vacuum an advantage over Dyson models, as it automatically empties the bin when docked. This happens each time, which I think is overkill. After all, if I'm just sucking up a hair strand or two, I don't really need to spin up the entire dock to clear the bin when it's mostly empty. Maybe Samsung needs to add an algorithm to determine when to empty the bin — based on weight, or maybe clearing it once every five to 10 docks instead.
Otherwise, I really do like this vacuum. The 280W — I'm not sure if this is equivalent to air watts — suction is powerful, and does a great job at picking up everything I throw at it. Whether it's cat litter pellets, general dust, dirt, or hair, everything gets sucked up. The AI cleaning mode regulates the power quite smartly. When I'm on a carpet, it kicks things up a notch. But again, Dyson already does this without needing to use AI, so I don't see the big deal here. The spacious 0.5L bin isn't filled so easily, especially if it gets emptied when docked. Battery life is rated at 200 minutes, but that's with non-motorised tools. You will get around an hour of use, and since it's always charged when dock, you don't have to worry about the Bespoke Jet AI running out of power.
Like its predecessor, the Jet AI comes with a wide variety of tools. You'll have everything you need, including a mopping tool. The extendable wand is a nice to have, especially if you're tall. The Slim LED Brush+ also now features an LED light, which lets you see dirt on the floor. It's not as good as the Dyson V12s's laser-powered brushes, though. The vacuum can also connect to the SmartThings app, but it's kinda basic. You can view how much power you saved, or use it to activate the Clean Station's emptying function. But you can also do it from the vacuum, so it's not really a big deal.
With a hefty price tag of S$1,499, the Samsung Bespoke Jet AI is pricey, but it does deliver on performance. I do like the automatic Clean Station and its pretty looks. But the Dyson Gen5detect Complete may also be a comparable buy (and I prefer the Dyson's laser-powered brush heads). Get the Samsung from Lazada.
