This is our verdict of the Roborock S6 MaxV based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Xiaomi certainly doesn't disappoint and continuously innovates to provide a better product for its users at a reasonable price. It released the Xiaomi Roborock S6 MaxV, a 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop with smart navigation and powerful suction.
It uses two cameras and LiDAR to flawlessly navigate and map the area. If it detects an obstacle along the way, the Reactive AI processes it to try and identify what object it is and sends it back to the app with the label. There is no need to worry about the captured and processed images because, according to the company, it doesn't duplicate, save, or send them to the cloud. Therefore, all the processed images are within the device only and you can be assured of your privacy.
Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Roborock S6 MaxV's Reactive AI can only identify limited obstacles. Still, this is a minor problem. It may mislabel objects, but it will still avoid them.
This product has a large dust bin capacity that can accommodate a week's worth of dirt, depending on the usage, unlike other robot vacuums' dust bins that need to be emptied after each cleaning cycle. Moreover, it also has a large water tank of over 280 grams and comes with a large mop cloth bracket that can perform a wider mopping coverage.
The robot vacuum may not come with a remote control, but the app is intuitive and provides a lot of features that enables the user to have more access and control over the robot vacuum. One of the features it offers is the virtual boundaries which are the no-mop zones and the no-go zones. The no-mop zone feature is helpful for those who have carpets and areas that they don't want to be mopped as this feature is only activated when in mopping mode. On the other hand, the no-go zone feature can block of any are on either of the cleaning modes.
The Roborock S6 MaxV can vacuum and mop efficiently, which leaves your floor neat and shiny. Its suction power is above average and can go as high as 2500 Pa. Thus, it can thoroughly clean on any time of floor and can even deliver dep cleaning. However, it only comes with one reusable mop cloth, so you will need to wash it and wait for it to dry before you can use it again.
Overall, the Roborock S6 MaxV offers the key features needed in a robot vacuum, including a powerful suction level, smart navigation, bearable, and a high-customisable app. Its price may be a bit expensive, but it is worth the investment because of the performance it delivers.
