After recently learning about Samsung POWERbot R7065, now it’s time to have a glimpse into the POWERbot R7070 model.
When planning to buy a robotic vacuum cleaner, there are 2 common things for consideration:
- How well does it clean?
- Is it reliable enough to do the cleaning alone?
Good to know that Samsung POWERbot R7070 can serve all of your worries well.
What I impress about this POWERbot R7070 unit is: it has powerful suction and is equipped with an intelligent camera-based navigation system. Depending on the flooring, the cleaning robot will automatically adjust the suitable suction power.
Check out our Samsung POWERbot R7065 review!
I’m going to inform you the basic functions of the R7065 in the following including its design and features, as well as reasons you should buy it.
The Samsung POWERbot R7070 price is comparatively expensive, but you always get what you pay for.
Design & Appearance
Due to its functional aesthetics and bulky form factor, the POWERbot range of Samsung does not deliver the sleek looks.
- Dimensions: 3.8 x 13.4 x 13.7 (HWD)
- Weight: 9.5 pounds
I find the R7070 different from other circular robot vacuums: with the U-shaped design, it can perform really well around edges and corners.
This unit is ideal when it comes to cleaning under most beds; however, it might struggle with coffee tables or couches. Though it’s quite tall, there are times it’s unable to slip under low profile furniture (below 3.8).
Take a look at the top of Samsung POWERbot R7070 and you will see a camera placed behind the bumper, while the top-loading dustbin and release latch are found below. The touch display with 3 basic buttons (play/pause, cleaning mode, and docking) is at the rear of the unit.
Flip it over and you’ll discover an on/off switch, 2 main wheels and one rear wheel, a self-cleaning roller, charging contacts, and drop sensors.
In general, Samsung POWERbot R7070 is a gadget with a very own character.
Compared to iRobot Roomba 980, the R7070 model is a bit bigger yet offers the better cleaning process.

How Does Samsung POWERbot R7070 Perform?
Like other Samsung robot vacuums, the POWERbot series is pretty easy for the setup.
In order to use, you need to plug in the base firstly; then, put your cleaning machine onto the charging pad. No side brushes or batteries for additional installation. Similar to the R9250 model, I must say the R7070 does a really good job of navigating around delicate items and staying away from stairs.
The process is smoother thanks to a downward-facing camera. While operating, your robot will weave everywhere in the house to make sure catching even the smallest debris from every square foot.
Packed with rugged wheels, this robot vacuum can deal with the transition between different floor types.
When it comes to Samsung POWERbot R7070 vs. Roomba…
- The Roomba 980 model from iRobot will back away from anything that seems unsuckable.
- Meanwhile the R7070 unit will stay still and transmit an alert designed for it to ask for help.
I did a test with this Samsung vacuum and instantly got amazed at how it can handle almost everything I threw at it (flour, sawdust, cat litter, etc.) without any problem. When moving on the carpet, the POWERbot R7070 is able to pick up approx. 92% of sawdust, whereas the Neato Botvac is only 56% and Roomba 980 is 60%.
How Much Samsung POWERbot R7070 Costs?
This unit is now available on the market with a list price of $699.
If you buy a used R7070, you can save up to 59% off the list price. In case you make a purchase from the Amazon website, the cost will be $498 plus free shipping instead of $699 which means you save $200 (mostly 30%) instantly.
