The Xiaomi Mi Robot is a serious competitor to more expensive robots. With its 150 minutes of working time and mapping feature, the Mi Robot beats the known beasts. It uses a laser to create an interior map and then automatically builds the most efficient cleaning path. It is equipped with 12 different sensors that help to operate the robot not to bump into things and avoid falling down. The MiJia app shows the created map and where the Mi Robot has been. It also tracks its movements in real-time and schedules the robot. It further comes with a recharge & resume option that makes the device recharge and resume from where it left off.

Generally speaking, Mi Robot owners love how it performs on bare floors and carpeted surfaces. It does have its issues with medium and high-pile carpets though. The robot is perfect for pet owners since its suction power is strong enough to catch pet and long human hair with ease. The biggest reason to pay attention to the Mi Robot is its price. The machine has features that other models reserve for their premium lines selling for over $500.
