Here is a detailed comparison of two the most powerful machines on the market: the Roborock S50 vs. Roomba i7+.

What is different between the two?

  1. Battery life. The Roborock S5 works longer which makes it more suitable for bigger homes
  2. Mapping technology. Inside the Roomba i7+, there is a camera sensor to map an interior. It requires a light on when the robot is vacuuming. The Roborock uses the LDS laser that creates an accurate plan of the layout and allows the cleaner to work in the dark
  3. Silicone rollers. The Roomba is equipped with upgraded silicone rollers that are ideal for pet hair since they are tangle-free and are effortless when it comes to maintenance. The Roborock has a bristled brush that is good for pet hair though you will spend some time to clean it after every cleaning cycle
  4. Height. The Roomba is slightly shorter than the Roborock and can fit under most furniture
  5. Washable filter. Both models have a HEPA filter. HEPA is perfect for people with allergy and those who suffer from asthma. The Roborock S5 is equipped with a washable HEPA filter that lasts longer than the common one
  6. Mopping. The Roborock sweeps and mops; the Roomba only sweeps
  7. Stronger suction. The Roborock S5 has stronger suction that makes it more powerful at cleaning thicker carpets
  8. Noise. The Roborock works quieter
  9. Virtual boundaries. The Roomba i7+ has a dual virtual wall in the box. It creates an area of up to 10 ft. (3 M), which the robot cannot cross. In the Mi Home app, you can draw an unlimited amount of digital block offs where you don't want the Roborock to go.
  10. Zone cleaning. After the Roomba created a map, you can divide it into some zones, name each and schedule the robot to work within a particular zone later. With the Roborock you can set as many digital areas as you want to using the app
  11. Color options. The Roborock S5 is available to buy in white (S50), black (S55), and rose-gold (S51) color options
  12. Real-time mapping. You can watch the Roborock in real-time on your smartphone
  13. Advanced charging base. The Roomba i7+ comes equipped with a self-emptying charging base. All you need is to empty the disposal box about once a month
  14. Saved floor maps. The Roborock is only able to save one created map. The Roomba stores up to 10 different floor plans
  15. Full bin indicator. The Roomba is equipped with an indicator that shows when the dustbin is full. It gets to the charging base, empties the dustbox and resumes cleaning. The Roborock stops working when the container is full
  16. Dirt detect. The Roomba has dirt detect that recognizes high-traffic areas and provides deeper cleaning on those spots
  17. Price. The Roborock S5 costs half of the Roomba price.
