Samsung smart fridge review

The internet of things is ready to go, and this fridge from Samsung is a great place to start
Samsung smart fridge review

Keep cool with the internet of things

The Samsung RF28HMELBSR/AA 4-Door refrigerator with 8-inch Wi-Fi Enabled LCD (there’s a name that rolls off the tongue) isn’t one of those gadgets that’ll make things easier. But it might provide some entertainment.

This remarkable fridge can actually mirror the screen of your Samsung Galaxy S6. That gives it endless uses as a handy kitchen guide – you could follow recipes on YouTube, do your grocery shopping online while looking in the fridge and more. You can even make phone calls through the fridge.

And you can do all that without touching your phone. Which is nice because our hands are usually covered in whatever we’re cooking in the kitchen, and the fridge is designed to be wiped clean – unlike the phone.

Making use of apps

There are also some interesting apps built in if you don’t have a Galaxy S6. You can listen to music through Pandora, although the fridge’s built in speaker isn’t great and there’s no way to connect your own. You can also catch up on the day’s news with the Associated Press app and check the weather with Weatherbug.

But the best, most useful app is Epicurious. This handy app provides recipes and cooking tips, perfect as it’s built into a fridge.

So the Samsung RF28HMELBSR/AA is pretty smart. But it’s also a good refrigerator too. It’s got space for 28 bags of groceries and easy access doors so you can reach everything. It’s also got something called a FlexZone Drawer between the fridge and freezer. This is split into four compartments that can each be set to one of four temperatures designed for different types of food. It’s another smart touch.

So Samsung’s smart fridge is definitely interesting. But we don’t think it’s quite hit the mark with what we want from a smart fridge. We want it to scan everything we put in it, know when something runs out and add it to a shopping list automatically.

If Samsung and other companies that are working towards the IoT added useful features like these, rather than entertainment, to their gadgets, we think we’d be living in a fully connected world pretty soon.
