Roborock Robot Vacuum Comparison Comparison 

S4 vs S5 vs S5 MAX vs S6 vs E20 vs E25 vs E35 vs Xiaowa – Which To Get?

The S6 is the newest (as of January 6th 2020) model, probably the most advanced. 

The next step down would be the S5 MAX – although, you only lose a small amount of dust bin volume, and it is slightly higher volume whilst in operation.

The S5 comes after that – you lose adaptive route algorithm and selective room cleaning compared to the S5max (along with some other very small differences).

All three of the above models are vacuum + mop robot cleaners.

When you step down to the S4 you actually gain back adaptive route algorithm and selective room cleaning, but you lose the mop feature, as well as top up charging. The S4 is the only model of all the E and S models without mopping.

The E3 and E2 models are designed for cleaning smaller spaces and areas than the S models, but have slightly more dust bin capacity.

The E2 has half the battery capacity and 100 minutes battery run time compared to 150 minutes run time compared to the E3. Is also has slightly less suction and rated power.

For exact differences, similarities and features, the roborock site has a comparison page.

All models are ideally not suited to high pile or colored carpets. They are better for thin carpet, non colored carpet and hard floors.

 

E20, E25, E35, Xiaowa E3, & Xiaowa E2

E Models: Differences, & Similarities

The E3 is the more advanced model

It has a bigger battery capacity, longer run time, can cover a bigger square metre area, and a higher power rating, and has slightly more suction
