Verdict

This is our verdict of the Roborock S6 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 02-03-2021

The Xiaomi Roborock S6 provides outstanding features and cleaning performance at a cheaper price than its other competitors. It is definitely worth the investment because of all the things it can do and the convenience it can provide.

This product provides a powerful suction level of up to 2000Pa while maintaining a low noise level which is very commendable. Hence, it can deep clean any floor type.

The Roborock S6 has a smart mapping system (Lidar navigation+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 that leads to a faster cleaning session. Therefore, the more you use it, the more it gets familiarized with the setting of the house, and the more time it saves.

It also has a no-go zone and selective room cleaning feature that enables users to have more control of where they want the robot vacuum to do its job.

Besides having a thorough and efficient sweeping performance, it also has a mopping option. It provides disposable mopping cloths and washable microfibre mops that enable the user to choose what 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 and get the vacuum to mop more efficiently.

However, it cannot clean tough stains and perform deep cleaning because it only basically runs the mop over the floor. This is a common problem among robot vacuums and this product is not an exemption. So, 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 can’t 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 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, hence, it can beat its other big-name brand competitors.

Roborock S6 vs. Roborock S5 Max

Pros

Lower noise level (67 dB vs. 69 dB)
Larger dust bin (480 ml vs. 460 ml)

Cons

Smaller water tank (140 ml vs. 290 ml)

The Roborock S6 and the Roborock S5 Max both have the same suction power (2000Pa), battery life (180 minutes on quiet mode), and navigation technology (LDS+SLAM). However, the Roborock S6 excels more in vacuuming while the Roborock S5 Max has more advantages because of its mopping function and large water tank.

Pros

Equipped with more sensors (14 sensors vs. 11 sensors)

Cons

Although the Roborock S6 and the Roborock S6 Pure have many similarities, such as the suction power (2000Pa), the battery life (180 minutes on quiet mode), the navigation technology (LDS+SLAM), and some app features, the Roborock S6 is equipped with more advanced features. The Roborock S6 Pure is designed as a slight downgrade of the Roborock S6 and for users who are looking for more affordable robot vacuums.
