* Note – this is not the full range of robo vacs from each brand. It is a selection of what we think are the most popular, latest or better models


Xiaomi vs ILIFE: Which To Get


The 2nd Generation model is the upgraded model over the 1st generation model.

It is a 2 in 1 vacuum and mop, whereas the 1st generation is a vacuum only.

The 2nd generation has slightly better suction, navigation and cleaning technology over the 1st generation.

So, assuming the price is suitable for you, the 2nd generation model is for you if you want an upgraded model.


ILIFE ‘V’ Range

The V Range are not smartphone app controlled or Alexa voice activated. They are controlled with a hand remote or push button.

The V8s is the most advanced model, then the V7s, then the V5s, followed by the V3s Pro which is the most basic.

The V3s Pro is a robo vac only.

The V5s Pro is a robo vac and spot mop, with a more advanced Max motor.

The V7s Pro is a robo vac and spot mop, which has smart dust bin technology.

And, the V8s has LCD front display/button technology, along with bigger water and dust containers.

Overall, we would say the V3s Pro probably offers the best value for money when you look at it’s price and performance. It’s basic, but it’s quite affordable.


ILIFE ‘A’ Range

The V Range are not smartphone app controlled or Alexa voice activated. They are controlled with a hand remote or push button.

The A4s and A6 are the more basic and affordable models. These are the ones to look at if a lower price is your preference.

The A7 and A8 are more advanced with the A7 being app controlled, and the A8 having advanced room mapping and cleaning capability.



The ILIFE V3S we think provides pretty good value as affordable robotic vacuums with good performance.
