This is our verdict of the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
The Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX is an expensive cordless vacuum, but it offers plenty of new and unique features such as its app, its self-cleaning filter, and its suction power slider control. It also comes with eight versatile cleaning attachments, and two detachable batteries.
The Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX comes with two floor nozzles: the soft roller, and the direct-drive brush. The soft roller is great for cleaning hard floors, because it can pick up even the smallest specks of dirt that the direct-drive might have missed. Another advantage of the soft roller is that it won’t scratch the wood, or other delicate material, of your hard floors. However, it cannot penetrate deep into carpets. That is where the direct-drive brush shines. It does a fine job of picking up the dirt particles that are deeply embedded in your rug.
There is a minor inconvenience, though. Unlike the Shark IZ251EU, that has two brushes built into one floor nozzle, the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX requires you to change cleaning attachments. However, both of Tineco’s floor nozzles are equipped with headlights that help you check whether you caught all the dirt when cleaning in dark, or poorly lit areas.
On top of the two floor nozzles, the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX also comes with six additional cleaning attachments that are great to use for any type of cleaning, aside from the floor. One unique attachment is the automatic pre-filter cleaning tool that is used to clean the filter. It allows you to reuse the filter, and save money, because you no longer need to buy a new filter every time the old one gets clogged up.
The mini turbo brush is a great help to those who have furry pets at home, because it does a wonderful job at picking up pet hairs on soft surfaces such as the sofa, bed, pillows, and car seats. The crevice tool is great for narrow spaces. It has a long and flexible tube that can help you clean those hard-to-reach areas inside your car because. The soft dusting brush can be used to clean your keyboards and other delicate objects. Meanwhile, the 2-in-1 dusting brush is a mix between a crevice tool, and dusting brush and it can be used to vacuum a variety of spaces.
Unlike Dyson products that require you to press down the trigger switch the entire time you are cleaning, the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX comes with a handy lock feature. It gives you the option either to hold down the trigger switch while cleaning, or lock it into place for more comfort.
The Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX’s handle has an LED display that shows you the battery level, the suction mode, and the Wi-Fi status. It also notifies you if the brush is blocked, or if the dust bin is already full. Below the LED display is the touch slider that controls the suction power; a feature that is unique to the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX. It allows you to control the suction power by sliding your finger on the touch bar, thereby giving you more options. This sets it apart from other cordless vacuums that only offer three levels of suction.
You can either manually control the suction power, or enable the cordless vacuum to automatically increase it in the areas that need more power, based on the level of dirt it detects.
The Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX has two detachable batteries, making it suitable for large houses. Instead of waiting for the battery to recharge, you can simply replace it with a fully charged one for uninterrupted cleaning. It also means that you can clean at your own pace without having to rush.
Another unique feature of the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX is its app, which shows how much dirt is collected, as well as all the information that is shown on LED display. However, the app might not be very relevant for everyday cleaning since the LED display already tells you what you need to know.
Overall, the Tineco Smarter Pure ONE S12 PRO EX is definitely worth the price, because it offers incredible features that you don’t get with other cordless vacuums. It is also highly versatile, has its own app, can self-clean its filter, and is equipped with plenty of unique smart features.
