Samsung Hub Review: 4 Door Smart Fridge


Today we are sharing our Samsung Hub Smart Refrigerator review. Yes, it’s the fridge with a screen!

Over the course of the last year as we’ve settled into our country home, we are slowly converting this old farm house into a smart home. From wifi thermometers to our home surveillance system, we can update and stay connected with our house via our phones.

Samsung Hub Smart Refrigerator Review

We are sharing our in-depth review of the Samsung Hub Refrigerator, a truly smart refrigerator that’s taking kitchen appliances to a whole new level. In this video, we’ll delve into its innovative features, sleek 4-door design, and the convenience of a fingerprint-free finish.

UPDATE: April 2017 – We have received a few emails over the last month asking if we are still using the Samsung Hub Refrigerator. YES!

This fridge is a staple in our kitchen and we still love and adore it.  The only thing that I wish they would have improved is the size of the ice maker. We have not had any technical difficulties with the refrigerator.

So, here is the deal. We had an okay refrigerator. It was NOTHING fancy, yes – every time I bought groceries for our family of 6 it felt like I was playing Jenga putting food in the fridge as it was entirely a crappy designed fridge.

It was fine, and worked, we made do and life went on – until life was changed when our new Samsung Hub wi-fi refrigerator arrived. Our Nebraska Furniture Mart delivery guy, Treminio rang our door bell and within minutes had upgraded our simple kitchen to fancy with this smart refrigerator.

(Also, side note: totally amazed how easy delivery was. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to move a fridge, it took us an hour to move our old fridge to the office (a whopping 20 feet – IF THAT!) Treminio and his co-worker had the new fridge out of the truck and in our kitchen and setup in 10 minutes.)

I honestly didn’t think a new refrigerator would make that much difference in our day-to-day lives – but wow. And the whole “smart” aspect – mind blowing, especially for this mom who has 6 mouths to feed and 6 schedules to coordinate.

A Pretty Refrigerator

The Samsung Hub is a pretty refrigerator. As far as retail store refrigerators go, this thing is gorgeous.

The Samsung Hub Refrigerator is not just a fridge; it’s a smart companion for your kitchen. Its cutting-edge technology allows you to control and monitor your fridge from anywhere using your smartphone. Whether you want to adjust the temperature, receive alerts, or even order groceries right from the touchscreen panel, this smart refrigerator has got you covered.

21.5″ LED Touchscreen

Yes, you read that right – this has a gigantic tablet built into one of the four doors. I’ll go into more depth into what apps are available, but like wow – it’s gorgeous – it redefines the meaning of “photos on the fridge.”

Finger Print Proof Coating

Okay moms with stainless steel products, you will lover this. The premium stainless steel exterior has a special coating to help eliminate fingerprints and smudges so your fridge always looks its best. There are a few smudges on the door handle, but overall compared to our other stainless steel kitchen appliances, there are minimal kid finger prints!

Nobody likes spending hours cleaning fingerprints off their fridge, and with the Samsung Hub Refrigerator, you won’t have to. The fingerprint-free finish not only looks elegant and modern but also saves you the hassle of constant wiping. Your fridge will always look sleek and spotless, even with busy family members reaching for snacks or drinks.

How to clean the Samsung Hub Refrigerator is easy. Using a microfiber cloth and few drops of water just buff spots and finger-prints. Then buff with a dry microfiber cloth for easy cleaning!

High-Efficiency LED Lighting

I’m a sucker for good lighting and the Hub’s lighting is gorgeous. The LED lighting gently brightens virtually every corner of your refrigerator so you’re able to quickly spot what you want. Plus, it emits less heat and is more energy-efficient than conventional lighting.


ENERGY STAR® rated products meet strict energy efficiency specifications set by the government. This Samsung refrigerator not only meets ENERGY STAR® requirements, it exceeds them.

Food and the Smart Refrigerator

6 mouths to feed means I am grocery shopping for 6 people.

Refrigerator with Cameras

I can’t tell you how many times I have to call home while I am at the store “DO WE NEED MAYO?”  Maybe you can relate?  Here’s the deal with the Samsung Hub. Remember, I said it was smart?  How smart?

You download the Samsung Smart Home app and boom – you have instant access to your refrigerator. There are 3 built-in cameras in the fridge. Every time the door closes, they take a picture, so you can view what’s inside your fridge from your phone or from the outside LED screen

Four Door Flex Design

One of the standout features of the Samsung Hub Refrigerator is its spacious 4-door design. This thoughtful layout offers ample storage and organization options.

The flexible shelving and customizable compartments make it easy to store everything from fresh produce to oversized party platters. Say goodbye to rummaging through a cluttered fridge – this design keeps your food neatly organized and accessible.

The doors are able to hold gallons of milk (we go thru 4 gallons of milk a week – this summer, it’s been 5!) And get this – the “flex design” allows you to use one of the quadrants for either a refrigerator OR freezer.

That’s right, if you don’t need the freezer space – you can convert the bottom right quadrant into a refrigerator. It has a built-in wine rack – so right now, it’s chilling my wine.

Apps and Entertainment

Did I ever think I would have a wi-fi enabled refrigerator? NOPE! BUT WOAH.


First, I don’t know about you – but I LOVE me some music, especially while cooking. Pandora is built-in so every morning my favorite Pandora channels are now blaring from the refrigerator.

Mirror Your TV

If you own a Samsung television, you can mirror your device and play the tv thru the fridge’s LED screen!

Family Hub

Share your family’s calendars, photos, and notes directly on the Family Hub, or from your phone. We’ve used this feature obsessively.

Remember the old days when you had a paper calendar? GONE! Now it’s all digital and can be accessed from the LED screen on your fridge! We leave each other notes, pictures and more – all on the screen.

All Recipes

Another built-in app is Allrecipes. If you haven’t tried this website/app – DO IT. As someone who tries to cook at least 5 dinners a week at home, I am always “stuck.” While Pinterest is great – sometimes I just need QUICK and PRACTICAL.

Allrecipes lets you type in the ingredients you have (example: chicken and tomato sauce) and will give you meal ideas and recipes. BRILLIANT and game changing!

Groceries by Mastercard

This feature is coming soon to my area, and I cannot wait to try it out. You can order groceries directly from your refrigerator.

TuneIn Radio

I had not used TuneIn Radio before, but I love it. I am a huge NPR fan and found I can listen to my local NPR station – all via the fridge interface!

Samsung Hub Ice Maker Problems

Three years into owning the Samsung Hub refrigerator, we started having ice issues. If you are familiar with the Samsung Hub ice maker problems, you know. Make sure to call Samsung customer service, even if your smart refrigerator is out of warranty.

Kitchen Technology

We absolutely love the Samsung Hub Refrigerator. If you are a kitchen technology junkie – one of our other favorite tech finds for the kitchen is the Instant Pot.

In conclusion, the Samsung Hub Refrigerator is a game-changer in the world of kitchen appliances. Its smart features, 4-door design, and fingerprint-free finish make it a standout addition to any modern home.

Say goodbye to old-fashioned fridges and embrace the future of cooling with the Samsung Hub Refrigerator.
