Xiaomi Mijia 2-in-1 robot vacuum cleaner: highlights

As mentioned right above, the Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner comes with a number of highlights that make it stand out from the company's previous models — as well as other robot vacuum cleaners on the market.

Xiaomi Mijia 2-in-1 robot vacuum cleaner 

Here are some of the Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner's key features:

●LDS laser navigation system

The new vacuum comes equipped with an improved laser navigation system that makes for a faster speed, higher precision and more accurate mapping overall

 3 cleaning modes

While most vacuum cleaners generally feature only two cleaning modes, the Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner takes this to the next level by coming with not two but three cleaning modes: sweeping, mopping and a handy mix of the two — sweeping + mopping.

 Artificial mopping

Thanks to the improved navigation and AI functionality, the 2-in-1 vacuum features two-way repeated wiping and guarantees a thorough cleaning process.

 12 multi-directional sensors

The Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner comes with high-precision sensors and assisted navigation and is, thus, able to better sense the surrounding environment.

 App control

The vacuum can be conveniently controlled via the dedicated Mi Home app. Additionally, the robot supports voice assistant commands from Xiaomi's virtual assistant, Xiao Ai.

 2100 Pa powerful suction

The vacuum is equipped with a strong brushless motor with adjustable air duct design and can easily absorb even the tiniest dust particles.

 2-in-1 water tank + dust box

The vacuum's water tank doubles as a dust box and features intelligent water level control to make sure just the right amount of water is used during the cleaning process.

 Area management

When using the app to control the vacuum, you will be able to set the so-called restricted zones — areas that you don't want the vacuum cleaner to mop or sweep.

 110 min long battery life

Thanks to the substantial battery, the vacuum cleaner features impressive battery life and can take on cleaning sessions of up to 110 minutes.

Roborock S6: highlights

There were plenty of reasons why the Roborock S6  was one of our top bestselling robot vacuums. There are quite a few areas where the S6 stands out.

Roborock S6 

Some of its key highlights include:

 Amazon Alexa integration + app control

One of the best things about the Roborock S6 is that it's compatible with Amazon Alexa and can be easily controlled via the app and by voice commands.

Roborock S6 

 2000Pa max suction

The robot comes with a strong motor that is capable of picking up even the smallest dust particles.

 50% quieter than other models

According to the company (and despite the vacuum's powerful motor), the Roborock S6 is 50% quieter than other vacuum models and should not be the source of too much disturbance.

 Virtual no-go zones

Just like the Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner, the Roborock S6 features the no-go zone option, thanks to which you will be able to set areas which you prefer the vacuum cleaner to avoid.

 Carpet boost

Thanks to the extensive selection of sensors and AI functionality, the robot can tell when it's on a carpeted surface and will automatically switch to the appropriate cleaning mode.

 150 min long battery life

The Roborock S6 sports a massive 5200mAh battery that promises to be enough for up to 150 minutes of non-stop cleaning in Quiet Mode.

Mijia 2-in-1 robot vacuum cleaner vs. Roborock S6: the price

The new Mijia 2-in1 vacuum cleaner is available with a budget price of just about $283 and has been on sale since August 16th. The Roborock S6, on the other hand, remains one of the priciest models on the market sporting a heftier price tag of $569.99.

Mijia 2-in-1 robot vacuum cleaner vs. Roborock S6: which vacuum should you choose?

The substantial difference in price between the two models would probably be your first consideration: the Mijia 2-in-1 robot vacuum cleaner can be confidently placed into the mid-range category while the Roborock S6 is a truly high-end device.

With that, when it comes to cleaning performance, the Mijia 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner is quite impressive. It comes with almost the same suction power as the Roborock S6 and many of the same features. However, there are two things where the S6 does excel: the robot vacuum has a longer battery life and is able to receive voice commands via Alexa. While the Mijia can also be controlled by voice, it can only be used with a Chinese voice assistance, which may be complicated for some.

Both devices are currently available on GearBest at discounted prices.
