Consensus

our Verdict

Professional reviewers lauded the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum and they recommended it for bare floors and low-pile carpets. Its 0.42L dustbin impressed and the robot removed an outstanding 98% of the large debris from bare floors and 62% from low-pile carpets during testing.

However, it failed to scale up high-pile carpets, and consumers who need a robot vacuum that cleans high-pile carpets should see our Wyze Robot Vacuum review. The Mi vacuum is effective with pet hair, removing virtually all the pet hair from hard floors and low-pile carpets.

Analysts from Product Review praised its 0.06 kPA of suction power and moderate 65.4 dBA tested noise rating. Critics hailed this unit’s 169-minute battery life. However, if you require a robot that runs for longer, see our yeedi K650 review.

The laser mapping and navigation system impressed, although the vacuum got stuck on electrical cables occasionally during tests. Testers at RTINGS were pleased that it has a HEPA filter, although it still leaked some small dirt particles during experiments.

Unlike the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum (this review), the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 Pro+ has a water tank for mopping, making it a better choice for wet messes. The Mop 2 Pro+ also has a larger 0.55L dust compartment, which contains more trash than the 0.42L compartment of the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum.

The Roborock S6 has a surface sensor that adjusts settings automatically between carpets and hard floors. The Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum doesn’t have such a sensor. Additionally, the S6 supports virtual barriers, unlike the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum. However, both vacuums require maintaining the HEPA filter.
