The designers of Bosch's Unlimited 7 have made design improvements to the cordless stick vacuum form factor, removing at least four of the UX hassles that saddle my Dyson.
When vacuuming, you often want to swap out the roller head for the angled nozzle. The Bosch makes this less fiddly: The roller head can be popped off using one's foot, and the business end of the vacuum tube beneath is already angled, eliminating the need for you to attach a separate angled head.
The vacuum stands on its own, conveniently staying in place when you want to remove the handle end to use as a mini-vac. (My Dyson needs to be laid down, and picked up afterwards.)
The long shaft has a joint above the midpoint, so you can vacuum beneath things without needing to kneel or squat.
And the top of the shaft has a little hook on the back of it. This means you can quickly dock it onto a variety of nearby surfaces when you need your hands free.
Sadly for me, the Unlimited 7 is European- and Asian-market only.
