It’s true, the world of robot vacuum is becoming more advanced & futuristic. Plus, there is no surprise on the self-emptying base. However, when the robot is on the base, it washes the mop, doing all your job by itself, which is something new. Till now, there are two robotic vacuums on the market that feature self-mop-cleaning, which are the Deebot X1 Omni and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra.
In this article, we’ve shared a comparison of Ecovacs DEEBOT X1 OMNI Vs Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra. Here we try to dig it out, can Ecovacs stand out from the crowd when the rival is Roborocks ultimate flagship model?
Both of these smart robot vacuums have the most advanced navigation and use Lidar to navigate precisely. Along with the Lidar sensor, there is also a 3D sensor, optic camera, and another bevy of sensors that allow them to recognize small to big objects while cleaning. All of them scan the surroundings to avoid obstacles, making navigation more precise & seamless. However, Roborock allows its user to build customizable maps, while the robo vac itself views rooms in 3D, 2D, and matrix layouts, allowing you to get a better grasp of what rooms the vac needs to tackle. On the other hand, deebot x1 combines mapping & navigation tech for a single hardware/software and it’s not as precise as Roborock. So, in this category, Roborock is a clear winner.
Cleaning & Mopping
When it’s all about cleaning & mopping, both robot vacuums did a tremendous job on our test. Each of them supports combo cleaning & mopping. But the Roborock model also has the advantage of its auto mop lifting. That means, that when it goes over the carpet, the mop lifts up, and this feature is missing on the Deebot. Apart from that, the X1 Omni does a better job at cleaning its mop, filling a little sink in the dock with water and swirling them around every 15 minutes while cleaning. Then, when it’s finished, it will quietly blow hot air for two to four hours to get them properly dry. The Omni also has much larger tanks, but we still needed to refill them as often as the Roborock model.
Before we talk about the runtime, we like to mention that, both are packed with a 5200-milliampere-hour battery, but Deebot X1 can run up to 4-hours straight on a single charge. And it is far better than the S7 MaxV Ultra. Sadly, the recharging time of Ecovacs Omni is really time-consuming, and Roborock takes a few hours to flow the battery bar. So, it’s a tie.
After the runtime, now let’s talk about what kind of smart features they offer. Well, both support voice commands and the roborock only works with compatible voice assistants. It can be annoying sometimes, since voice assistants like Sir, and Alexa is more prone to misunderstanding commands. On the other hand, Ecovacs comes with a dedicated voice assistant which is called Yiko. That means, no trouble when you’re giving voice commands to the cleaning bot.
The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra and Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni seem to be changing the game for what we’ll expect from premium robot vacuums going forward. Based purely on specs alone, it sounds like the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra will have a slightly better shot at the title of “best vac,” thanks to its price and a few of its extra cleaning and mapping perks. However, that doesn’t mean the Deebot X1 Omni is not a good vacuum. It has a dedicated voice assistant, offers better runtime, and many more that allow it to stand out from the crowd.
