Xiaomi Roborock S50

Xiaomi Roborock S50

Xiaomi Roborock S50 is the most expensive one but it the only flagship model on the market that has mopping possibility. Does Xiaomi Roborock the best? Let's find out.

Firstly, it is the only robot from the list that has mapping and smart navigation. Even though it has a strong suction power, it lasts for the whole 150 minute which is crazy. Despite the fact that this device is powerful, it is equipped with a soft bumper that reduces noize while working.

Roborock is able to clean a bare floor, and deep clean thin and medium-pile carpets. Its mapping technology is based on a laser so the robot can work in the dark. The unit has an anti-tangle design that prevents hair wrapped all over its brush, motor and the wheels which makes the machine perfect for pet owners.

It uses a washable HEPA filter. It is the type of filter that catches up to 98% of pollen in the air reducing the cause of allergies.

The app is actually great here. You can track your robot in real-time, view the created map, switch between the working modes, schedule the device, name it, and create virtual walls. Do not know how to manage your device? Simply tap on the area you need the robot to go on your smartphone and Xiaomi will go to that point.

Xiaomi Roborock performs great on a carpet. It comes with a smart carpet identification that turns on its suction power on maximum once the cleaner recognizes carpeting surface. The unit deeply cleans any kind of carpet (except the thick ones) and work great on a hardwood floor, tile, marble etc.

Recharge & resume option makes Xiaomi Roborock S50 dock itself when its battery decreases to 20%, juice it up to 80% and resume from the point it left off to finish its session.

Unfortunately, V8S doesn't come with an app but it does have an IR remote controller that allows to control the device and also you can do it manually by pressing buttons on the lid (the device has a screen).

Ecovacs Deepbot M80 is the cheapest here. It is compatible with Amazon Alexa and one of the best-selling high-rated products on Amazon.

Mapping

Amazon Alexa Integration

If you have Amazon Alexa you probably need to have a look at these models that are compatible with it. These would be ECOVACS Deebot M80 and Proscenic 790T, Xiaomi Roborock has limited support.

Home Size

If you live in a small home - all of these machines are good. But if you are tight on your budget, have a look at Proscenic 790T, ILIFE V8S, and ECOVACS Deebot M80.

For an average home the longer a robot lasts the better.

And finally, for a big home - Xiaomi Roborock would be the best. It works the longest, has mapping so it will not be lost in your cleaning area (please note, that mapping technology does not cover the second floor).

Carpets / Rugs

Bare Floor

All the devices on the list are ideas for a bare floor, laminate, tile, marble etc. It depends only on your own preferences which one to buy.

Pet Hair

When it comes to pet hair it is important to know what type of floor you want your robot to clean. For mostly bare floors - every machine would be great at picking pet hair. On mixed surface every single one from the list would work good but if you want deep carpet cleaning to see the carpet&rugs paragraph. And finally, for the home that mostly covered with carpets - go with Xiaomi Roborock or Proscenic 790T because of the strongest suction power they have. Do not forget that all the robots can do thin carpets but do not expect deep cleaning from ILIFE V8S, ECOVACS DEEBOT M80 or ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 601.

It is not easy to say which one is the best robot mop. It depends on your budget, own preferences, floor type etc.
