The main difference between Hoover UH72625 and UH72630 is the Air Valve Dial.
The UH72630 has an Air Valve Dial on the side which allows you to switch suction between Floor and Hose. Turn dial to HOSE position for cleaning with hose and/or tools, turn dial to FLOOR position for general floor cleaning through nozzle.
Whereas the UH72625 does not have this dial. (It seems that the old version has the dial.) You will have to go to the bottom of the vacuum to remove the hose if you want to use attachments.
Don’t be fooled by the images on the product box and the manual, though they show the air valve dial, the actual vacuum did not have that function. There are users that bought the UH72625 complained this false advertisement.
The UH72630 has a 40-foot power cord versus 30-foot on the UH72625.

Below is the main difference between Hoover Onepwr Blade, Onepwr Evolve, Linx and Impulse battery powered vacuums. If you are deciding between them, the info might be helpful to you.
images from Hoover official site
This is one of the major difference between them.
The Onepwr Blade and Impulse are handheld and stick 2-in-1 vacuum cleaners, they come with floor nozzle, wand and accessories, you can use them to do quick pick up on floors or above floor cleaning.
While the Onepwr Evolve and Linx are slim and lightweight upright, they do not come with any tools for above floor cleaning, they can be used to do floor cleaning only. (The Onepwr Evolve is a newer model than the Linx, it is from the creators of Linx, but upgraded, such as having larger dust cup, longer run time, more control options.)
So, if you want a more versatile vacuum, you may want to consider the Onepwr Blade and Impulse.
The Onepwr Blade, Onepwr Evolve, Linx use a removable battery design that allows you to have one in use and buy a second one to sit in charger to stand by, so you can extend the working time. While the Impulse has a built-in battery which cannot be removed and swapped out.
I personally do not like the internal battery design. When the battery dies, the whole vacuum is useless. And you cannot get extra running time by ordering an extra battery.
The Linx, Blade Series and Evolve have Brush On/Off control which allows you to turn off the rotating brushroll when cleaning delicate floors, whereas the Impulse brushroll always spins when on, but it spins at lower speed when select hard floor setting.
The Onepwr Evolve equipped with an antimicrobial brush roll that help prevent the growth of odor causing bacteria whereas the Onepwr Blade series, Linx and Impulse do not feature.
The Onepwr Blade and Impulse come with tools such as wand, crevice tool and dusting brush to help clean hard to reach spots and above floor areas.
Whereas the Onepwr Evolve and Linx do not have any tools.
So if you need one to clean areas like ceiling fan and countertop, then you may want to consider the Onepwr Blade and Impulse.
Dust Cup Capacity
The Onepwr Evolve has the largest dust cup capacity which holds up to 1 liter, over 3 times the one on the Onepwr Blade.
Only the Hoover ONEPWR Blade Series equipped with LED headlights which help you see the hidden dirt and clean low light spots.
Fingertip controls allow you to change settings to fit your clean needs without bending over.
The Onepwr Blade, Linx and Impulse feature the fingertip control while the ONEPWR Evolve does Not.
The Onepwr Blade and Impulse come with a wall mount for neat storage.
Whereas the Onepwr Evolve and Linx are designed to stand upright, they do not come with a wall mount and cannot be wall mounted.
The Linx, Blade Series and Evolve require you to remove the bettery to charge it in charger base, whereas the Impulse has a internal battery, so it needs to be charged in unit / wall mount.
All of them are lightweight vacuum cleaners, weigh less than 9 pounds. The Hoover ONEPWR Evolve is heaviest while the Impulse is the lightest which weighs less than 6 pounds.
The Onepwr Blade series and Evolve carry 3 year limited warranty while the Linx and Impulse carry 2 year limited warranty.
The Impulse and Blade Evolve feature swivel steering for easily maneuvering around obstacles. While the Linx does not have swivel steering.
None of them have HEPA filtration.

The Linx Signature is a newer model with slight cosmetic and design change.
The Linx is in lighter color, something like glacier blue while the Signature is darker, like black. The dust cup on the Linx is also in lighter color. However, both allow you to see through to know what and how much are collected.

There are 2 different types of beater bar vacuums on the market:
one allow you to turn off the rotating brushroll,
one have a non stop spinning roller.
Not a few people do not like the vacuums without a beater bar shutoff. Because they think such design is not user friendly:
they cannot decide when to use the beater bar themselves,
the spinning roller increases the noise level when it is not needed,
sometimes it may kick debris everywhere on hard surfaces,
and the worse thing is that it may cause damage to the floor if the bristles are too stiff and the height of the bar is not at a suitable position.
Some of these people end up buying a vacuum without roller brush, while some choose to get a vacuum that features a beater brush on off switch.
Below are some of the best selling vacs that you can turn off the brush:
This Miele canister bagged vacuum cleaner comes with 2 nozzles: A motor driven head which is mainly designed for cleaning carpet, it has 5 level height settings to fits different piles of carpet and rugs, however, the brush roller can also be turned off to vacuum hard floors.

Price is always the major factor that stops people from buying a Miele vac. But you get what you pay for.
Wheels on the base is small and the canister is light, so it may tip over if you pull it the wrong way on carpeted surfaces.
Exhaust blows out from the top of the canister and into user’s face if get too close occasionally.
Chunky nozzle does not go under all furniture.

What is a Beater Bar?
Well, I don’t think we have to get it too complicated. It’s something like a short metal or plastic bar which placed in the vacuum nozzle. Generally speaking, it has bristles which can be made of nylon, rubber or some other materials. When turned on, the beater bar will vibrate and revolve, then agitating carpet, pull out embedded dirt, fluff carpet, or scrubbing hard surfaces.
Some vacuum models have beater bar on off switch whereas some others do not have, instead, the roller keeps rotating when the vacuum machine is on.
Some models have an adjuster that allows users to manually adjust the height of the bar to suit different surface types, while some others feature automatic adjustment.
Is vacuum brush for carpet or floor? And when to use?
Most of the time, the revolving brush is used for carpet and rug cleaning. However, some manufacturers also produce some models that equipped with soft rubber bristles or blades to help clean certain kinds of hard floors.
Do canister vacuums or stick vacuums have beater bars? Yes, but there are few. And the price is commonly higher than those without a motorized brush roller.
