Dual charge + extended battery life
The biggest fear with cordless vacuums is battery life and fears that you'll forget to charge your vacuum, or it'll die halfway through the job. Make no mistake: This is not the case here. 

Instead, this cordless vacuum offers up to 60 minutes of uninterrupted cleaning before a recharge is required, and that is not all. Users will also receive a dual charging station that features a spare battery that can be ready to go in just under 3.5 hours; extending your vacuum's life has never been easier.

Advanced performance
Users can clean hardwood, tiles, and carpeting in no time, courtesy of this vacuum's 200 air watts. This intense suction power can seamlessly pick up any dirt and debris found on your floors or hardware, plus thanks to its handheld device (more on that later), it can seamlessly get into those hard-to-reach places such as underneath the stove and behind your bed, too. 

Lightweight Design
The Samsung 90 Jet vacuum is designed to go around any home with ease; weighing in at a mere 6 pounds, it is easier than ever to not only pick up but operates. You will never have to fear a bulky vacuum weighing you down or causing any aches and pains; this lightweight design will go from the stairs to beneath sofas and even clean high cabinets and window blinds with no issues whatsoever. 

Reaches tight corners
Remember how we mentioned it's perfect for getting into those tough cervices and corners? We were not lying – the telescopic pipe (featured on the vacuum), was designed to reach those awkward areas of your home and clean them in a matter of seconds. 

Turbo Action Brush
Rotating more than 3,700 times a minute and paired with a 180° swivel flexibility, the Turbo Action Brush add-on will flawlessly clean dust, hair, and other debris plaguing your surfaces. 

Jet Cyclone
The only feature more seamless than actually using this vacuum would be cleaning this vacuum. Users can keep debris from building up on the filter, thanks to its powerful multi-cyclonic system. Here, this trusty feature pushes dirt into the dustbin and off your ground! 

5-Layer Hepa Filtration
Above all, this vacuum claims to trap up to 99.999% of micro dust from pet dander, pollen, and any other non-living allergens for cleaner air in your home. Which is pretty good all things considered! 

Samsung 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum: Why I love this vacuum 

If you're like me and living in an apartment, often, the vacuums that are deemed "the best vacuums on the market" might be too big for your specific living space. Here, this silver vacuum was not only sleek and stylish but suitable for my small New York City apartment. 

The 8.5" x 9.8" x 44.7" dimensions make it easy to tuck behind my kitchen table, and if you also happened to invest in the additional charging station, as I did? The instructions added a small plastic piece that could seamlessly nail to the wall — so you could hook the vacuum onto the wall, just as your wood your keys, hat, or jacket. From someone who lacks floor space, that puts this vacuum in a league of its own! 

Easy set-up
Another downside to those big, bulky vacuums? Aside from the space the machine takes up, it's how complicated they are to set up. Here, this vacuum offered a streamlined process and carefully labeled directions that made attaching (or detaching) every piece easier than ever. I believe it took me under 10 minutes to unbox this vacuum and assemble it. 

All you have to do is press the 'on' button and then adjust the vacuum; turn to the '+' for a higher speed or the '-' for a slower one. Truthfully, it doesn't get easier than that. 

Let's be clear: Adding the additional cleaning station is a choice, not a requirement, and had I opted for it after receiving the vacuum? I most probably would not have. 

This vacuum offers enough additional add-ons and battery options that you are more than set. This vacuum includes add-ons such as a wet brush for anyone who wants to replace their traditional mop and clean-up and hardwood floors or bathroom tiles. Additionally, there is a 'turbo' brush for anyone dealing with those higher, bulkier carpets where dirt and debris are difficult to see but are most definitely there. And, lastly, there is a handheld piece, which is you're like me, is the best part. 

Before moving into my new apartment — and bedroom — I foolishly did not measure my velvet headboard that includes drawers, so every time I go to pull one out? I have to move my queen-size bed from one side to the other because there is not enough space for it to be centered. 

Long story short? I cannot even begin to tell you how much dirt and debris trapped under my bed, on the sides of my bed, and most frighteningly: behind my bed, which of course, is why this handheld device is ideal for someone like me in this situation. I can easily squeeze my hand behind those tighter areas, and rest assure that this add-on will suction everything up in no time! 

Worthwhile investment
As a female who lives alone, so often, it's hard to know what household tools and appliances are worth investing in. I also can't begin to tell you how many vacuums I've purchased that did not live up to the hype or justify the hefty price tags, but that all changed here. However, this was the first worthwhile investment that felt like the $599 price tag was worth it. 

Between the 1-year warranty and easy-to-use instructions, I can confidently say I do not see myself needing another vacuum anytime soon, and for that: I am grateful. 

Samsung 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum: Our verdict

Whether you're living in a small space or a luxurious house, the Samsung 90 Jet vacuum is the one-stop shop for seamless cleaning. This cordless vacuum can get into those hard-to-reach areas, mop your floor better than your traditional vacuum, and even offers a portable charging table that justifies the steep $599 price tag. 

Here, this vacuum offers users full control. You can easily adjust how fast or slow you want your cleaning process to go; plus, this perfect piece gives you peace of mind for up to 60-minutes before users need to dock it for a recharge. Plus, if you happen to have the spare battery on hand, you can eliminate any fear and continue going! 

Simply switch out the dead battery for the new one, and off you go! How many cordless vacuums offer that on the market; few, if at all, any. And that's why I can't even think about going back to the way I cleaned before.

Sure, this Samsung 90 Jet might be small in size, but it's a force in power and completely knocks it out of the park! I can sincerely tell everyone: this machine not only taught me how to clean smarter and more strategically, but how to enjoy it, too. What is better than that? 

Nothing — and that is why this Samsung Jet 90 cordless vacuum receives an A++ in my book.
