In today’s robot vacuum comparison review, we have an epic battle between Deebot Ozmo 930 vs. Xiaomi Roborock S5, which are two of the best models from the Chinese frontier.
Xiaomi features in this review with their Roborock series of vacuums. The Xiaomi Roborock S5 is the best Xiaomi vacuum and maybe the last now that Roborock which used to manufacture Xiaomi vacuum branched away to work as an independent brand.
Why we like Xiaomi S5
- Super suction – The powerful motor delivers a maximum of 2000Pa while the OZMO has a paltry 1,000Pa.
- 2-in-1 Cleaning – With this vacuum cleaner, you don’t need a dedicated mop as it vacuums and mops simultaneously.
- Extended runtime – Xiaomi built this vacuum with a high capacity 5,200mAh battery with auto recharge and resume function.
- Larger cleaning area – Because of the longer runtime, the cleaning area is extensive as well. It can do up to 2,700 sq. ft.
- Zone Clean Up – Map a specific spot where you want the robot to clean instead of it cleaning the entire house.
- Manual Cleaning – The Xiaomi app allows you to manually drive your robot and direct it to the dirt hotspots.
- Virtual walls – Set invisible boundaries on the mobile app and that’s it – no nodes or physical markers.
This is a popular Chinese brand known for its cheap robot vacuums, for example, the Deebot N79s. The Ozmo 930, however, is not a cheap model, but then, the features and performance justify the high price tag.
Why we like Deebot Ozmo 930
- 2-in-1 Cleaning – OZMO 930 will vacuum and mop simultaneously, so you don’t need a dedicated mop.
- Interchangeable cleaning head – Choose between the brushroll for carpet vacuuming and the suction only head for bare floors.
- Two side brushes – No dirt will be left behind courtesy of the dual side sweeping brushes. This is compared to the single side brush in Xiaomi.
- Digital boundaries – On the Ecovacs Home app, the Deebot 930 allows you to draw virtual boundaries.
- Area Cleaning – This is a feature similar to Zone Cleaning that allows you to vacuum specific areas instead of the entire house.

- Multi rooms and restricted zones – Use the digital barriers to set limits where the vacuum is not supposed to cross.

- Busy homes – The Area Cleaning function come in handy when dealing with specific dirt spots.

The Deebot Ozmo 930 vs. Xiaomi Roborock S5 battle is an unending one. Each model has its advantages and disadvantages.
The Ozmo comes with a little more sophisticated features but the Xiaomi Vacuum 2 packs raw cleaning power.
The choice between the two is not entirely a matter of choice.
Buy the Xiaomi if you have carpets and forget about the conveniences of digital boundaries.
But if you want full convenience, the Ozmo 930 is a great choice, but it is not potent when it comes to suction power.
