Unlike a large number of Chinese vacuum cleaners, the Xiaomi Smart Vacuum Cleaner features a very minimalistic design — it’s simple, sleek, and is made in classic white.
On the top, you will only find the main controls: ON and HOME buttons. Thanks to the slim design, the robot vacuum can easily get into narrow areas and efficiently clean under furniture.
Functionality & operation
One of the main highlights of the model is that it comes with 12 different sensors — yep, the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum is a very intelligent device. The main sensor is the Laser Distance Sensor, which scans the area, and, with the help of the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm, forms a virtual map of the interior and memorizes the layout for for efficient navigation.
The vacuum comes with three processors, which track the robot’s movements in real time and is equipped with a powerful Nidec brushless DC motor capable of 1,800Pa of suction power. The main brush features an adjustable height and the 5200mAh Li-ion battery ensures 2.5 hours of effective cleaning. Even though the Xiaomi Mi Robot does not come with remote control, you will be able to easily navigate the device via the Mi Home App. The smart vacuum cleaner will stay within 10mm off your wall and clean the edges with a side brush.
Pros: long runtime (thanks to the 5,200mAh battery), WiFi app control (you can even control the vacuum from outside your home and track its movements), efficient cleaning pattern (thanks to the 12 sensors) and HEPA filtration (a powerful air filter ridding your home of allergens and harmful substances).
Cons: the lack of extra accessories (no extra filters, brushes, etc.) and English user manual (though the operation is pretty straight-forward).
