Featuring a docking station with a self-cleaning mop and self-emptying dustbin, the Ecovacs Deebot X2 Omni is perfect for lazy people (such as yours truly). It's not truly hands-free though, as I've come to discover. While the docking station will pump hot water to clean the mopping pads after it's done, you will still need to wash it after some runs, or be prepared for a funky smell. You should also empty the dirty water bin as regularly as possible.
- Automatic carpet detection
- Ecovacs app, Yiko voice assistant

Unlike the round Ecovacs Deebot T9+ or T10+, the X2 Omni features a square design. This lets it get into corners a lot easier. Like the T10+ it comes with a camera, which has AI-powered features such as poop detection and avoidance. Thankfully, I have yet to test this out since my cats are pretty good at keeping it in the litter box. You also get Yiko voice assistant — you can tell it to clean specific rooms, or change the vacuum speeds. I honestly didn't use it much, since the app was able to handle everything. The robot cleaner was able to avoid most obstacles, and was short enough to fit under my couches. However, it did sometimes get stuck on my sliding door's track, but that was maybe one in about 15 runs during my testing period.
The suction is really strong at 8,000Pa. That means it's probably stronger than the Dyson 360 Vis Nav, which has 65AW (roughly 3,380Pa) of suction power. Dyson uses its own numbers, so the conversion is based on third-party figures. Anyway, I think the suction can be a bit too strong. My floor mats were being sucked up, and moved all over my home. Or the Deebot would get stuck because the mats got stuck. I've since learned to move all my mats away. I didn't have this issue with the Dyson or T10 models, though. But all that suction power is great, too, as the X2 Omni picks up all the loose cat fur, cat litter, and dust all over my home.
The best part about the X2 Omni is that you don't have the swap out any parts. Everything is built-in, including the mopping pads. These pads lift up out of the way when it detects carpets, but go back down when mopping. When the vacuum is docked, it automatically empties the bin, while the station pumps hot clean water to clean the mopping pads and sucks the dirty water away. It then blows hot air to dry the pads. I recommend that you clean the tray at the bottom weekly as dirt and hair will get trapped there. You also need to top up and empty the tanks frequently, though the app will prompt you when it's out of water. And speaking of the app, you can also use it to remotely control the vacuum or patrol the home to check in on your pets while you're away.
At S$1,799, the Ecovacs Deebot X2 Omni is one of the more expensive robot vacuums available. It's only slightly cheaper than the Dyson 360 Vis Nav, but offers a lot more with its automatic cleaning features. If you're looking for one of the best robot vacuum in the market, you can't go wrong with this Ecovacs. Get from Shopee or Lazada.
