360 S5 vs 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner: what are the main differences? And how to choose them?

ByKali Waller 2019-04-15 2262

360 company released the first generation of the vacuum cleaner - 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner in 2017, the cost-effective got lots of positive responses. Then, the second robotic cleaner - 360 S5 robot vacuum cleaner entered the market of robot vacuum cleaner in 2018. The new 360 S5 robot vacuum cleaner got some great improvements on the cleaning ability and functions, but its price is still attractive and affordable. Now, let’s compare the two robotic cleaners in details side by side.

360 S5 vs 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner: unbox & design 

There is no significant difference between 360 S5 and 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner, all adopt the round and simple style, both LDS lidar head. The combination of a white body with black sensor enhance the sense of high technology.

360 S5 vs 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner: cleaning ability & intelligent system

1. Suction power


The main difference is the suction power, 360 robot vacuum cleaner upgraded 360 S6 1800Pa to 360 S5 2000Pa, equipped with the same NIDEC brushless motor, but the noise still acceptable (lower than 65dB).


2. Path planning


On the part of path planning, 360 S5 and 360 S6 both come with LDS laser navigation and SLAM algorithm, multiple sensors throughout the fuselage. APP control also can set a no-go zone and a voice reminder function.  


The 360 S5 robot vacuum cleaner level of cleanliness upgraded a lot because of the improvement in mapping. The judgment of layout, 360 S5 draws more simple route than 360 S6, which means the 360 S5 vacuum cleaner easy to pick the optimal path, cover a larger area of the floor, and save a lot of time to clean.


360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner has the function of mopping + sweeping, but 360 S5 focus more on dust collection.

3. Obstacle climbing ability


Both of them easy to cross 2cm threshold, and climb up the carpet easily.

4. Battery life


There is no great progress of the 360 robot vacuum cleaner battery capacity, but the standby time was increased. Compared to the 360 S6 3200mAh, only cope with 100mins cleaning, the 360 S5 2600mAh up to 110mins for the floor, and 75mins for carpet cleaning.


Conclusion and buying suggestion

Nowadays, 360 vacuum cleaner is the cheapest laser navigation model on the market. To be honest, S5 is not an upgrade one but satisfy the essential cleaning requirements. No matter 360 S5 or 360 S6 robotic cleaner, nothing huge differences about the design but improving the effects of path planning, higher coverage of cleaning area with less cleaning time. Then, cleaning efficiency improved from 1800Pa to 2000Pa, the ability to climb carpet or threshold are also strengthened. APP control system still upgrades automatically and keeps virtual wall function.


360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner has both mopping and sweeping functions, but if you do not mind the function of mopping, the new generation 360 S5 robot vacuum cleaner is worth to buy. They all suitable for the house which is not too much chaos.


Despite the excellent cleanning performance, compared to other same functions and over $400 vacuum cleaners, 360 S5 robot vacuum cleaner and 360 S6 robot vacuum cleaner always adhere to the affordable price ( no more than $400 ) with all-round performance.
