The first thing you’ll notice about the Roborock S5 is that it eschews the typical black exterior of most robot vacuums in favor of a shiny white finish. But the S5 has more going for it than its sleek looks. It has all the features you’d expect from a higher-end model, such as laser navigation and floor mapping. Plus, it can do mopping.
Once the S5 is connected to Wi-Fi via the phone app,the vacuum will get to work, mapping the space as it goes and providing stats on the area and its progress. Once the map is saved, you can choose an auto cleaning or zoom in on particular spots where you want the S5 to go. At 3.8 inches, the S5 is on the taller side, which could prohibit it from getting beneath some furniture.
For mopping, you will need to attach a special module, consisting of a flat water tank and cloth. It’s fine for a light cleaning, but it’s not the right tool for thoroughly cleaning, say, your kitchen floor.
