This is our verdict of the Roborock S6 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
The Xiaomi Roborock S6 provides outstanding features and cleaning performance at a cheaper price, as compared to its competitors. It is definitely worth the investment because of all the things it can do and the convenience it provides.
This product comes with a powerful suction level of up to 2000 Pa even while maintaining a low noise level, which is very commendable. With this, it can also do deep-cleaning on any floor type.
The Roborock S6 has a smart mapping system (LiDAR+SLAM) that can thoroughly navigate and map the whole floor. In addition to this, it has an adaptive routing algorithm that makes the robot vacuum smarter. It can learn and understand the floor plan and arrangement of obstacles so that the next time you use it, it already knows the best method or route to apply, leading to a faster cleaning. Therefore, the more you use it, the more it becomes familiar with the house, the more it saves time.
It also has a no-go zone and selective room-cleaning feature that enables users to have more control over where they want the robot vacuum to do its job.
Besides doing a thorough and efficient sweeping performance, the robot also has a mopping function. It provides disposable mopping cloths and washable micro-fiber mops that enable the user to choose which mop attachment is best for their floor type and what they prefer to use. You can also adjust the water flow to get the right amount of dampness you want for your floor surface, depending on what can produce a more efficient mopping.
However, it cannot clean tough stains and perform deep cleaning because it basically only runs the mop over the floor. It is a common problem among robot vacuums and this product is not an exception. Therefore, it is best to use it for maintenance only—just to keep the floor shiny and clean.
Additionally, because it only has a basic mopping ability, it cannot automatically distinguish carpets from hard floors. Thus, it may mop the carpet as well, unlike other high-end robot vacuums that have a no-mop zone feature that allows users the option to block off carpeted areas while running the mop option.
Overall, the Roborock S6 is worth more than its price because of its outstanding features and performance that can beat its other big-name brand competitors.
