The Samsung Air Purifier AX46 does the job

The air quality index in India is usually poor, especially after the festive season and during the winter. It’s December, and most states have poor air quality, according to the website. This is where air purifiers come into play in our lives. In India, Samsung has recently launched two new air purifiers, the AX32 and AX46. The AX32 is a low-cost option for smaller spaces, whereas the Samsung Air Purifier AX46 is intended for larger spaces such as living rooms or offices. In terms of features, the AX46 includes a dedicated Gas sensor as well as a Laser PM sensor to monitor air quality. Also it supports SmartThings as well as allows users to control the air purifier from anywhere using the app.

It also has multi-layer air filters and 3-way airflow for improved air circulation. On paper, all of these features appear to be promising. We’ve been using Samsung Air Purifier AX46 for a while now, and here’s what we think of it.


The Samsung AX46 has a tower-like design. While it isn’t a sci-fi-level design, it is simple and has a neat look to it that can go with most house aesthetics without being too loud and prominent. The design is somewhat serious and appears to have been created with functionality in mind. The front has a massive grille mesh that pulls air from the surrounding area using the fan and a three-layer filter. The air purifier’s three airflow vents are located at the top and on either side. A Gas sensor and a Laser PM sensor are also located on the right side. The Samsung AX46 also has wheels, which makes moving around the room or house easier given its size.

The top also has touch buttons and LED indicators for air quality, PM, and gas. Power, fan speed, night mode, cancel, filter, and lock buttons are among the touch buttons. Another intriguing feature is the top air vent’s color-coded LED lights, which indicate the current air quality. This is also true for the Gas and PM icons.

Filters and Capacity

The Samsung AX46 has a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 467 cubic metres per hour, making it appropriate for larger spaces of up to 645 square feet. The AX46 has a three-layer filter system that includes a washable pre-filter, an activated carbon deodorisation filter, and a dust collecting filter.

There is also a zinc oxide-based anti-bacterial dust-collecting filter. According to Samsung, it is also effective against the H1N1 virus. The filters are simple to use. The air purifier’s front flap is magnetically attached. Users only need to turn off and unplug the air purifier before removing the front panel. That is, all of the filters can now be easily accessed and replaced. As a result, the Samsung Air Purifier AX46 is simple to maintain in the long run. With eight hours of daily use, Samsung claims that the main filter can last up to a year. However, we believe it will be entirely dependent on the surrounding air quality. Users will also be able to purchase a new filter to replace the old one.

Smart Features

The Samsung AX46 is an intelligent air purifier. It works with the SmartThings app, which is pre-installed on Samsung smartphones and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. The SmartThings app detected the air purifier as soon as we opened it, and it was simple to set up. All you need is a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection and a few other details about the room.

With SmartThings app support, the air purifier can be controlled from anywhere. It allows you to schedule the air purifier’s operations. However, one feature we liked was the ability to turn on the air purifier automatically when you are near or on your way home. We used the feature, and it worked perfectly. Furthermore, the SmartThings app offers options such as Intelligent Care, displays air quality, and more. It even allows users to track their energy consumption.

The only thing we found lacking was the lack of voice assistant support, including Bixby. We believe that adding Alexa or Google Assistant support would have made it a complete solution.


We used the AX46 for a while, and during our testing period, it displayed the red indicator, indicating that the air quality in the area is poor. However, when run at full power, the light went from red to yellow and occasionally green in about 30 minutes, considering the space it was attempting to purify. That’s fantastic. We also noticed something when we opened the balcony door in the morning and the sunlight illuminated the dust particles as they moved slowly towards the air purifier to be filtered.

The three-way airflow vents quietly and effectively circulate air. There is no way to measure it right now, but the airflow is adequate depending on the speed. Furthermore, the vents are designed in such a way that they are rarely obstructed by other items kept nearby. When running at full speed, it becomes quite loud. However, leaving it in Auto mode simplifies things, and it also has a dedicated Night mode, which we frequently used at night to get a good night’s sleep. And this is when everything falls silent.

The SmartThings app was also extremely useful. Before leaving the office, we usually turned on the air purifier.


The Samsung AX46 is priced at Rs 32,990. However, it is currently available for Rs 26,990. The AX46 has everything an air purifier should have for the price. It features a dedicated Gas sensor as well as indicator, a PM sensor with a three-layer filter, a good airflow design, app support, and functions as an air purifier should. So, if you’re looking for a good air purifier, the AX46 is a good option to consider.
