Consensus

our Verdict

Top critics praised the Roborock S7, recommending it for bare floors and carpets. Reviewers from The Verge loved its mopping function. However, if you prefer a stick mopping vacuum, check out our Samsung Bespoke Jet review.

Testers discovered that it produces just 0.03 kPa of suction power and it has a moderate 69.3 dBA noise rating. This device offers good performance, clearing 94% of the large debris on hard floors and 66% on low-pile carpets during experiments.

However, it requires regular brush roll cleaning. If you prefer a self-cleaning model, see our yeedi Vac Station review. Testing revealed an outstanding battery life of about 204 minutes.

This vacuum has a small 0.25L dirt compartment, which is smaller than the 0.6L dirt compartment of the Roborock S4 review. Editors at Product Review were pleased with its HEPA filter, although the vacuum leaked some small particles during testing.

Also, the filter requires regular replacement. Consider the Samsung POWERbot R7040 review for a low-maintenance alternative.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Impressive battery life
  • Advanced navigation system
  • Mopping function
  • HEPA filter
  • Virtual boundary feature

Reason to Avoid
