Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

In this comparison, we’ll look closely at the Dreame L10S Ultra and the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra – do-it-all robot vacuums capable of vacuuming and mopping with base stations that can wash the pad and empty the robot’s dustbin.

Both are in the premium range with their versatile base stations, but the L10S Ultra is cheaper, whereas the S7 MaxV is in the ultra-premium bracket (no pun intended).

Which option is better? I’ve put both through a grueling series of tests to find out.

Introduction to the Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Over the past years, manufacturers have expanded robot vacuum functionality, adding an auto-empty feature, then a pad-washing feature.

These aids with autonomy because these tasks are done by the base station, not manually, saving time and effort.

Slowly, more manufacturers have implemented both functions within the base station, and both brands have these features built into their massive docks.

Ultra-Premium Option: Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra base station and robot


  • Do-it-all base station makes it an excellent autonomous robot vacuum option
  • One of the better obstacle-avoiding options after the Roomba J7+
  • Efficient at vacuuming and mopping
  • Proficient navigation that excels at moving around tight quarters
  • Quick-mapping feature fast tracks map creation
  • Bristled pad cleaning component helps clean the mopping cloth efficiently


  • Ultra-expensive option
  • Below-average deep cleaning performance

Roborock is a pioneer in many ways in this industry. It’s the first brand to implement a vibrating mopping pad, which I haven’t seen in other brands.

The S7 MaxV Ultra is (perhaps) the best all-around alternative, factoring in cleaning, mopping, self-emptying, pad-washing, and obstacle avoidance performance.

It does all these at an efficient rate, better than other brands I’ve tested.

One downside of all these features stuffed in a limited space is its sheer size.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra base station

It is massive, with the bag holder and water tanks in a row.

Roborock S7 MaxV clean and dirty water tanks and bag housing

But there will be compromises with the added feature: most notable is the reduced water tank capacity compared to options with only pad-washing capabilities like the Dreame W10 or the Narwal T10.

Another feature is the obstacle avoidance system, one of the better ones I’ve tested.

Two laser flank the twin-lens camera, helping it identify and avoid objects better than the S6 MaxV.

This variant is one of the better AI robot vacuums (in my opinion), second best after the Roomba J7+ at evading objects, particularly coiled wires and pet feces.

Unfortunately, a significant airflow drop-off affects its deep cleaning performance (under 80%).

Despite the expensive price tag, the S7 MaxV Ultra is one of the better do-it-all robot vacuum/mop hybrids that does everything efficiently.

It won’t clean as well as a high-airflow Roomba option, but it’s above-average with surface debris pick-up.

Cheaper Alternative: Dreame Bot L10S Ultra

Dreame Bot L10S Ultra Review


  • Cheaper alternative to Roborock
  • Efficient navigation thanks to LIDAR and SLAM
  • Twin mopping pads will remove enjoy hard-to-clean juice stains
  • Above-average bag capacity (3 liters)
  • Quiet even in the max setting
  • Built-in slot for the cleaning solution


  • Another expensive option
  • Obstacle avoidance is flawed
  • Below-average deep cleaning performance

Dreame’s latest product combines the attributes of the W10 and Z10 Pro – pad-washing and self-emptying features, making it fully autonomous.

It’s an upgraded version of the W10 with changes in several areas, including shape, brush roll design and capacity.

The L10S Ultra utilizes a round frame with the exact pad placement behind the brush.

Dreame L10S Ultra twin spinning pads

I’m guessing Dreame changed the shape to accommodate the auto-empty dock behind the robot.

Dreame L10S Ultra auto empty port

Another enhancement is the bristle-less brush roll, a similar design to Roborock, with the rubber blades wrapping around.

Dreame L10S Ultra new brush roll

Dreame retained the rubber flaps in front of the roller, which protects the robot from picking up liquid during mopping cycles.

Another new feature is the obstacle avoidance system, similar to Roborock, which uses a front-facing camera and two lasers flanking it.

Unfortunately, Dreame’s algorithm isn’t as good as Roborock’s because it gets too close, increasing the risk of touching objects.

Not a big deal for low-risk items like shoes, but it’s a concern for things like wires.

Dreame L10S Ultra wire

Likewise, this model has an airflow downgrade, so it’s not as good as the older W10 at surface debris experiments, especially on hard floors.

So the bristle-less roller doesn’t improve agitation, but it does with cleaning hair, at least with maintenance.

Similarities between the Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Despite looking vastly different, there are a lot of similarities between these products if you look close enough.

1. Do-It-All Base Stations

First similarly is the versatile base stations with pad-washing and self-emptying features.

Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra base station

However, the similarity ends there. The designs of these are different, especially with the pad-washing element.

Roborock uses a bristled attachment that goes back and forth on the pad, while Dreame relies on a ribbed contraption where the pads spin to dislodge debris.

Roborock S7 MaxV pad cleaning

I like Roborock’s design better because the bristles clean the pads better than Dreame’s ribbed contraption.

2. Obstacle Avoidance

The next parallel is the obstacle avoidance sensors, enabling both to evade objects.

Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra front camera

You’d expect both to have similar results, but that’s not the case.

I’ve tested both extensively, and Roborock was (much) better at evading obstacles, especially with coiled wires and pet feces.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra avoid wires

Its algorithm isn’t as intelligent as Roomba because it gets close, but not as close as Dreame, where it couldn’t avoid even coiled wires.

Dreame L10S Ultra avoiding wires

3. Twin Water Tanks

The Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra have two water tanks, separating the clean and dirty water.

I like this design because it prevents cross-contamination and makes maintenance easier.

The S7 MaxV has a slightly larger capacity with its clean (3 vs. 2.5 liters) and dirty (2.5 vs. 2.4 liters), giving it a (slight) edge.

One difference is the water tank placement. Roborock has it on top and no cover, giving consumers instant access.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra clean and dirty water tanks

The L10S’s design is more traditional, with the container inside a shell. So folks will have to open a top door to access them.

Dreame Bot L10S Ultra twin water tanks

4. Brush Roll Design

These two and the latest Roomba options are the only robots that utilize a bristle-less brush design.

I’ve tested these extensively and found little variance with agitation between a traditional combo brush and a bristle-less roller.

Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

However, there’s a slight variance in the design. Roborock uses a (slightly) diagonal pattern, while Dreame has a V-pattern.

5. Navigation

Lastly is the navigation – both utilize LIDAR and SLAM, so these robots navigate similarly, starting the run by vacuuming the edges before moving toward the middle portions.

Dreame improved by adding a third pass in the app, improving its thoroughness.

Both have a mapping cycle, fast-tracking the map creation process ten-fold, taking advantage of LIDAR’s 360-scanning ability.

Differences between the Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Next, we’ll examine the differences, starting with the mopping pads.

1. Mopping Pad

There’s a significant variance in the mopping pad design for these robots.

The S7 MaxV Ultra uses a single pad design but with a vibrating element in the middle, helping it mop stains efficiently.

Roborock S7 MaxV pad attached

It also has an electronic water tank inside the robot to keep the pad damp throughout the mopping cycle.

One advantage of this design is there’s no need for a pre-soak cycle, which is the case for Dreame, and further trips to the base station to keep the pads damp.

It won’t be an issue inside a tiny home, but the need to resoak the pads will add to the mopping time for larger homes.

Dreame utilizes a twin pad design similar to the older W10 that spins to create agitation and remove stains.

Dreame L10S Ultra twin spinning pads

Both use gray cloths, masking stains better than white, so there’s no need to hand wash these items.

2. Auto-Empty Slots

A subtle variation is the auto-empty slots or where debris passes during the self-emptying cycle.

Dreame’s slot is behind the robot, while Roborock has it on the brush roll.

I’ve tested both extensively and didn’t see much difference in their effectiveness at emptying the robot’s dustbin.

One advantage of Roborock is that it has a wider opening and works even with large hair, so it’s a factor for pet owners.

3. Dustbin Capacity

Dreame Z10S Ultra dustbin location

There’s a slight difference in dustbin capacity, with the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra having a larger volume at 420 ml compared to the Dreame L10S’s capacity of 350 ml.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra dustbin

One similarity is the placement, which is on top.

The capacity difference shouldn’t be a deciding factor since these robots have a self-emptying feature (both with a 3-liter capacity).

4. Bag Location

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra bag location

The S7 MaxV Ultra’s bag is at the top beside the water tanks, while the Dreame L10S Ulta’s bag is in the middle behind a cover.

5. CCTV Functionality [Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra only]

While both options have a front-facing camera, only the S7 MaxV Ultra has CCTV functionality, enabling consumers to monitor their homes through the robot’s POV.

Roborock S7 MaxV camera POV

This feature can be good or bad, depending on your view on home privacy.

6. LED on Front Camera [Roborock S7 MaxV only]

Roborock S7 MaxV LED

Only the S7 MaxV Ultra has the LED underneath the twin-lens camera, helping illuminate the path in darker areas and helping this robot navigate even through pitch-dark conditions.

App Comparison

The Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra have smartphone apps, expanding the functionality of these robots and helping with their autonomy through their automation features.

We’ll review the various aspects of these apps below – the most helpful ones, specifically.

Dreame recently launched its Dreamehome app in the beta phase, as evidenced by the lack of functionality.

Dreamebot vs. MI Home app

Don’t bother downloading this app (for now), but opt for the MI Home app instead.

The MI Home and Roborock apps have similar features, except for select functionality.

1. Live Map

Dreame L10S Ultra vs. Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra live map

The most helpful of these features is the live map, which shows the robot’s position in real-time on the map. Plus, the areas were vacuumed (or mopped) through the grid lines.

2. Mapping Run

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra vs. Dreame L10S Ultra mapping run

Both also have a mapping run (fully) utilizing LIDAR’s 360-scanning ability to fast-track the map creation process.

I like this feature, especially inside large homes where it can take a while to create a map using a traditional run.

3. 3D Map

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra vs. Dreame L10S Ultra 3D Map

Another similarity between these apps is the 3D map, first seen in the Roborock app. It shows the map from a different perspective at various angles.

I like the Roborock version better because it’s integrated into the main interface.

Roborock Q7 Containment

Also, you can see the invisible walls, no-go zones, and grid lines during the cleaning cycle.

4. Map Saving

The MI Home and Roborock apps can save up to four map levels, and consumers can customize each level with containment, partitions, and more.

5. Containment

Another benefit of the map-saving feature is the containment; these apps have several options.

First is the invisible wall feature, where consumers can block areas using lines that act as “virtual walls,” blocking the robot from going past them.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra vs. Dreame L10S invisible wall

Another option is the no-go zone, where consumers can use boxes or rectangles to block an area.

The no-mop zone is also available, but I think it’s redundant because the no-go zone has the same function.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra vs. Dreame L10S no-go zone

6. 3-Pass Run

Roborock S7 MaxV vs. Dreame L10S Ultra 3-pass run

One underrated feature of these. apps is the three-pass run, adding a layer of thoroughness absent in other brands.

However, this mode is only available in the selective room cleaning and zone cleaning tabs.

When the default cleaning mode is selected, these robots will only go through a one-pass cycle.

7. Obstacle Recognition

Roborock S7 MaxV vs. Dreame L10S Ultra obstacle recognition

Since these robots have front-facing cameras, their apps have software capable of identifying obstacles.

One variance is Roborock shows photos of these objects while Dreame does not.

Again, this can be good or bad, depending on your views on home privacy.

8. Vacuum and Mop Settings

Since these robots are hybrid options with vacuum and mop functions, there are options to adjust power and mop settings.

For Dreame, consumers can control how wet the pads are during the pre-soak cycle since it doesn’t have a water tank inside the robot.

Otherwise, the suction setting is similar, but with Roborock having a fifth power setting.

Nonetheless, these are low-airflow robot vacuums, so the variance between the settings is low.

Dreame L10S vacuum and mop settings

Roborock’s water setting is different. Consumers can adjust several aspects, including the scrub intensity and mop route, but not the water disbursement since it’s dependent on the scrub setting.

Roborock S7 MaxV vs S7 vacuum and mop settings

9. Pad Wash Settings

Another nuance with these robot vacuums is the pad wash settings due to the difference in how the base stations clean the pads.

Both allow consumers to adjust wash frequency or when to wash the pads by area size or zone.

Here’s a screenshot of the Roborock app.

Roborock S7 MaxV wash settings

And here’s a screenshot of the MI Home app.

Dreame L10S Ultra other settings

One difference is that Roborock enables folks to select the scrub intensity setting or how fast the brush will move to remove debris from the pad.

The MI Home app doesn’t have that option because the discs spin on the ribbed device, and it only rotates at one speed.

Navigation Comparison

There isn’t much variance with navigation between the Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra.

Both are efficient at traversing, especially in tight quarters, thanks to LIDAR or a laser distance sensor.

Using it provides precision not available in a camera-based robot.

One advantage of LIDAR is that it doesn’t rely on any light source. Even in pitch-dark areas, it will have the same efficiency.

Coverage Test

I scattered quaker oats in my tiny room to check how long it takes for the robot to complete the cycle and how much it’ll pick up, and these options didn’t disappoint.

The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra and Dreame L10S Ultra completed the cleaning cycle at approximately the same time – around 20 minutes for a two-pass run.

But Roborock is slightly better, picking up more debris after the run.

Here’s a before shot.

Roborock S7 MaxV coverage before

And here’s how much it picked up after a two-pass run, which is impressive, given it doesn’t have as much airflow.

Roborock S7 MaxV coverage after

The Dreame L10S Ultra was decent, picking up nearly as much, but left more debris afterward.

Dreame L10S Ultra coverage test before

Here’s how much it got after the second pass.

Dreame L10S Ultra coverage test after

Airflow Comparison

Next, we’ll look at the airflow of these products, where I use an anemometer to measure air turbulence at the brush roll.

Power setting
Dreame L10S Ultra
Power setting
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

Standard14 CFMBalanced
8.71 CFM
Strong 14.87 CFMTurbo
9.8 CFM
Turbo 14.98 CFMMax
12.49 CFM
13.39 CFM

Surprisingly (at least for me), Dreame has a higher airflow output at close to 15 CFM at the highest setting compared to the sub-14 result of the S7 MaxV Ultra.

The low airflow doesn’t affect either at picking up surface debris as both are above-average, with the slight advantage to Roborock in this aspect.

But both are below-average at deep cleaning carpets due to the lack of power.

Cleaning Comparison

Next, we’ll explore how well these products vacuum hard floor and carpet surfaces on different debris types.

Dreame L10S Ultra
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
Hard Floor
Sand on hard floor
Carpet (Surface Pickup)
Carpet (Deep Cleaning)

Despite the lower airflow, the Roomba S7 MaxV Ultra was better in (nearly) every aspect of the experiments, picking up more debris on both surfaces except the deep cleaning tests.

The brush roll design is a significant factor (I’m guessing), providing better agitation as evidenced by the cleaner passes.

Which option is better on hard floors?

It’s (obviously) the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra since it picked up a higher percentage in all the surface debris experiments.

One is the sand on hard floor test that I use to gauge a robot’s vacuum’s effectiveness on this surface.

Here’s a before and after shot for the S7 MaxV Ultra.

Roborock S7 MaxV sand on hard floor

And the Dreame L10S Ultra.

Dreame L10S Ultra sand on hard floor

The S7 MaxV picked up a higher percentage (99.6% vs. 98.3%) and is above average in this experiment.

Edge Cleaning Comparison

It’s close in this experiment as both options picked up a high percentage but were not as proficient as high airflow robots.

Again, here’s a before and after shot for the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra.

Roborock S7 MaxV edge cleaning

And the Dreame L10S Ultra.

Dreame L10S Ultra edge cleaning

Based on these photos, the Dreame L10S left less debris along the edges, so it has a (slight) advantage in this category.

Hair Wrap Comparison

One advantage of utilizing a bristle-less roller is it’s less prone to hair tangles, at least in theory.

Dreame L10S Ultra
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
5-inch strands
7-inch strands

Again, the Roborock S7 MaxV got higher scores, despite having lower airflow, which is a testament to its brush roll design.

Roborock S7 MaxV hair on axle

More hair was wrapped on the Dreame L10S brush after the seven-inch experiment.

Dreame L10S Ultra seven inch hair test

Fortunately, cleaning this mess isn’t as hard as it would be on a combo brush.

Another aspect going for Roborock is its larger dustbin, giving it more volume to tackle higher quantities of pet hair.

It also helps with maintenance since pulling hair from the roller is easier without tools.

Which option is better on carpets?

Both got the same percentage (77.95%), so it’s a dead tie – a below-average score for robot vacuums.

Mopping Comparison

The results are similar despite the variance in the mopping pad design and how these agitate stains are similar.

Here are some before and after photos of the Roborock S7 MaxV on red wine and grape juice stains.

Roborock S7 MaxV red wine stains

It didn’t have any issues mopping sticky coke and juice stains.

Roborock S7 MaxV coke and juice stains

I did a similar experiment with Dreame, and the results were similar – efficient mopping of stains.

Dreame L10S Ultra red wine stains

I’m impressed by how it handled grape and prune juice stains – two extremely impossible-to-mop varieties for traditional robot mops without any agitating element.

Dreame L10S Ultra juice stain test

However, since these robots cannot pick up liquid, both will leave a sticky residue on the surface.

It’s not an issue exclusive to Roborock or Dreame but a universal one for robot mops that can’t pick up liquid.

One variance is that Roborock doesn’t have a slot for the cleaning solution, and you’ll need to add it manually into the robot’s water tank, so if you want to use one, there’s more work.

Dreame has a slot between the clean and dirt containers for the cleaning solution, so disbursement is done electronically through the base station.

Run Time Comparison

The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra and Dreame L10S Ultra use the same 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery, but the latter will run further at 210 minutes, compared to Roborock’s 180-minute claim.

However, this shouldn’t be a deciding factor since both utilize LIDAR, which is highly efficient at navigating tight areas, so it’ll complete the run sooner than the 180+ minute range.

Noise Comparison

72.9 dB

Even if it has higher airflow, the Dreame L10S Ultra produced less noise than Roborock, especially in the highest setting, not even breaching 64 decibels (63.6 vs. 72.9 dB).


Another thing we’ll look at is the maintenance components consumers will need to clean if they want these machines will last for many years.

  1. Brush roll: Clean it weekly to remove hair and dust accumulation on the roller and axles.
  2. Side brush: Another hair and dust magnet, so detach and clean weekly.
  3. Dustbin: If you’re purchasing these robots with the clean base station (applies only to Roborock), then there’s no need to do this task frequently. But check it monthly to clean any accumulation and the filter.
  4. Auto-empty bag: Give the bag a visual check monthly to check if it’s full. These robots don’t have a bag-full alert feature to notify consumers, so check it manually.
  5. Dirty water tank: Empty the contents after every pad cleaning cycle (if possible) to prevent foul odor from forming inside.
  6. Wheels: Wipe the rubber threads to remove debris or gunk accumulation using a clean microfiber cloth.
  7. Mopping cloth: Even with the pad washing feature, you’ll need to clean the mopping cloth (at least) monthly to remove any residue from mopping floors.
  8. Base station: Wipe the base station to clean any build-up on the ramp or the pad-washing area.
  9. Auto-empty port: Ensure no debris blocking the port from the bag inside the base station.

Which is better, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra or the Dreame L10S Ultra?

Given their price variance and close test results, I’d give the slight edge to the Dreame L10S Ultra because it’s cheaper and possesses most of the S7 MaxV’s features.

The Roborock S7 MaxV has several distinct advantages, namely surface debris pick up and obstacle avoidance, but the difference in the former is not significant.

To help you decide, I’ve enumerated reasons to choose each variant below, so read carefully.

5 Reasons to choose the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

  1. Better surface debris pick-up: Despite having lower airflow, Roborock possesses better design dynamics, enabling it to vacuum debris more efficiently.
  2. More refined obstacle avoidance: Roborock’s algorithm is better at evading objects since it doesn’t get as close.
  3. Larger dustbin: Not a big deal, except for pet owners who may be considering purchasing any of these options.
  4. In-robot water tank: This feature provides the S7 MaxV with better range while mopping since the pad stays moist for longer stretches.
  5. Excellent pad washing mechanism: I like the bristled element of the S7 MaxV’s pad scrubbing component, enabling it to wash the mop cloth well.

4 Reasons to choose the Dreame L10S Ultra

  1. Cheaper option: The Dreame L10S Ultra is cheaper and provides 95% of the S7 MaxV’s functionality.
  2. Efficient mopping: The twin pads help this product mop stains efficiently, even hard-to-clean juice stains.
  3. Decent surface debris pick-up: Despite the low airflow, the Dreame L10S Ultra vacuums debris well enough for daily cleaning tasks.
  4. Three-pass run: This variant is the only other brand I’ve tested with a three-pass run outside Roborock.

The Verdict: Closer Than Expected

I wasn’t expecting much from the Dreame L10S Ultra compared to the premium-level Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra.

But after combing through the test results, these do-it-all robot vacuum/mop hybrids are (really) close regarding vacuuming and mopping performance.

Roborock’s obstacle-avoidance algorithm is more refined and doubles as a stealth CCTV, but not everyone wants this functionality because of privacy concerns.

But Dreame is cheaper and (yet) possesses most of Roborock’s functions with some compromises.

So, are you willing to live with these and save a few hundred bucks?
