Tineco vs Dyson [Which Brand is Better?]

Tineco vs Dyson

In this comparison, we’ll focus on two brands, Tineco vs. Dyson, comparing their cordless stick vacuums across the range.

We’ll be going in-depth with the comparisons from their entry-level to premium level options.

I’ve put these vacuums through a grueling series of tests to see how well it does in various areas.

Which brand is better? We’ll find out.

Here’s an overview of the models we’ll look at and a quick look at the spec sheet.

The deep cleaning was done using 100 grams of sand on mid-pile carpet. I did two tests, and the scores you see below are an average of two trials.

Overview of Dyson cordless stick vacuums

Dyson is a pioneer with bagless vacuums, and the same can be said for their cordless range.

It offers more variety to consumers with feature sets and tool variations.

From the entry-level V7 to the top-spec V15 Detect, there’s a variant that will suit your needs.

I’m not featuring the Dyson Omni-Glide and Micro 1.5KG in this article since these are hard-floor-only vacuums, so it’s out of the scope.

I will focus on Dyson’s full-sized stick vacuum lineup since it’s a more apples-to-apples comparison.

Some of these models have sub-models that offer tool variations for specific needs.

Overview of Tineco Cordless Stick Vacuums

Tineco product line up

Tineco has fewer options and currently has four. I’ve tested three – the A10, A11, and Pure One S12.

The other option, the S11, more or less has the same features as the S12, so there isn’t much variance between these models with design or power figures.

I have not tested the S11, so I can’t comment on how it compares with the A10, A11, and S12.

One selling point for Tineco is its high number of attachments, most of any cordless vacuum I’ve reviewed.

They’ve done an excellent job at establishing their own identity despite copying Dyson’s design framework.

I like its many features, such as the manual trigger lock, which Dyson does not possess.

As you’ll see below, cleaning performance isn’t far off, and I’d say it’s one of Dyson’s closest rivals in this category.

I’m not including Tineco’s IFLOOR-series products since these are hard floor washers and don’t belong in the same category.

Introduction to Dyson vs. Tineco

Dyson is a household brand with a track record of manufacturing high-quality vacuums. They’ve been around for decades, and I’m guessing they will be around for a few more.

Founded by James Dyson, this company is the pioneer of bagless vacuums and produces some of the most powerful cordless stick vacuums in the industry. Their primary focus now is cordless vacuums, and with the release of the V11 Outsize, they mean business.

Tineco doesn’t have that track record so far, but from what I’ve seen, they are pushing out high-quality products capable of cleaning almost as well as a Dyson.

In some ways, Tineco is anti-Dyson. Their products incorporate features not found in Dyson or stuff they don’t want to include.

These include having a trigger lock, removable battery, and more accessories than any Dyson cord-free product.

Similarities of Tineco and Dyson

In this section, I’ll summarize the similarities between the Tineco and Dyson stick vacuums.

1. Interchangeable tools

Tineco and Dyson utilize a removable tube and interchangeable attachments that provide it with a lot of flexibility regarding the areas it can clean.

The difference would be the types and number of tools available, which Tineco over-delivers.

2. Trigger

Both have a trigger mechanism for turning on the motor. Dyson’s version is more responsive at the slightest pressure.

Dyson trigger

Tineco’s trigger isn’t as responsive with a slight delay, but it’s got the trigger lock, so you don’t have to squeeze continually.

Tineco trigger

All Tineco stick vacuums have a trigger lock.

3. Primary nozzles

Dyson and Tineco have a soft roller and standard brush attachments for cleaning floors, depending on the model you choose.

However, Dyson’s version does not have an LED headlight that is present in Tineco.

4. HEPA filtration

All Dyson and Tineco stick vacuums have fully sealed systems with a post-motor HEPA filter, keeping fine dust particles inside the dust bin.

Differences between Tineco and Dyson

Now, let’s look at the differences between these two brands.

1. Steering

Dyson cordless vacuums possibly have the best steering of all the stick vacuums I’ve tested. Their products turn sharply and are very responsive. Twist the wrist, and it immediately turns.

Tineco’s steering isn’t as responsive and doesn’t turn as sharply. So it takes more turns to avoid obstacles.

2. Dust bin

One of my favorite features with Dyson is the hygienic system. All their cord-free products starting with the V7, have this feature for pushing debris downward.

Tineco doesn’t have anything like it but only has a release latch for opening a trap door underneath, then gravity takes over. It works most of the time, but statically charged stuff like hair tends to stick.

However, one advantage Tineco has over Dyson is how easy it is to remove the cyclonic system. For Dyson vacuums, you’ll need special tools to remove this component.

3. Battery

All Tineco stick vacuums have a detachable battery that’s easy to remove. And if you purchase the A11 or Pure One S12, it’s possible to charge two batteries simultaneously.

In comparison, Dyson cord-free products (except for some V11 and all V15 variants) have built-in batteries. It is possible to replace the batteries, but you’ll have to remove a few screws.

Please check my guide on replacing the Dyson V6 and V8 battery for more details.

4. Accessories and tools

Tineco over-delivers in this aspect. The A11 and S12 include more than ten attachments out of the box.

Dyson doesn’t have the diversity of tools that Tineco brings to the table. For example, the V8, V10, and V11 come with three to four extra tools aside from the main cleaning heads.

5. Auto setting

These vacuums (at least the premium options Dyson V11 and Tineco S12)  have sensors that automatically adjust suction, but each brand does it differently.

Tineco’s sensor is near the dust bin and adjusts airflow based on the quantity of dirt that flows through it. So regardless of the surface, the motor will kick into a higher gear if you run over a dirty patch.

Dyson’s version is different. It increases power when it detects more resistance (e.g., carpet) and returns to a lower setting when it senses less.

Interface comparison

All Tineco and Dyson stick vacuums have similar interfaces, but there are differences.

These vacuums all have triggers for turning on the motor. Tineco’s version has a trigger lock; Dyson does not.

The A10 and A11 have a button on top to toggle between the default and max settings.

Tineco vs Dyson Interface

The Tineco A11, A10, Dyson V7, V8, and V10 interface side-by-side.

In contrast, the Dyson V7, V8, and V10 use a slide switch for the same purpose. Please note the V10 and V11 have three power settings; the V6, V7, and V8 have two.

The Tineco Pure One S12 and Dyson V11 are different. Both have a screen for disbursing information to users, such as run time, power settings, and more.

Tineco S12 and Dyson V11 screen interface

The S12 has a slider to adjust power. It doesn’t have a fixed number of settings – only a range. I just leave it at auto and let the iLoop sensor do the work to keep things simple.

The Dyson V11 Torque Drive has a button at the back that toggles between the three settings – low, auto, and boost.

One quirk for Tineco is it always starts at low even if you use a higher setting previously. Dyson doesn’t have the issue and starts at whatever power setting you used beforehand.

Power comparison

Here’s an overview of the power figures of Tineco and Dyson stick vacuums. For the sake of uniformity, I used an anemometer to measure airflow from the wand and main nozzle.

Realize that there’s a margin for error with this experiment, but it’s an excellent method to compare power.

First, here are the results.

Cleaning head24.35 CFMN/A39.72 CFM
Tineco S12
Wand34 CFMN/A61.72 CFM
Cleaning head27.95 CFMN/A50.71 CFM

The Dyson V11 Torque Drive has the highest airflow of all the vacuums on the list, which translates to superior performance on carpet.

The V11 Outsize has even more power than the Torque Drive, but I haven’t tested it, so I didn’t include it here.

Tineco isn’t far behind. The S12 has 6.89% less airflow at the max setting than the V11 Torque Drive.

Moving down to the lower-level options, the Tineco A10 recorded a slightly higher score than the V7.

In comparison, the V8 is slightly more powerful than the A11 at the wand, but the A11 produces a little more airflow at the nozzle.

The difference with airflow is just minimal with the lower-end models.

How do Tineco and Dyson clean?

All these stick vacuums are versatile machines capable of cleaning various areas like carpet, hardwood, stairs, and upholstery.

Each variant you see here has interchangeable tools making it usable as a stick and handheld vacuum.

But the primary function of these products is cleaning floors. And it does it with two main tools – a soft roller (or fluffy) and a standard brush.

So here are the cleaning heads of each model.

The type of floor tool you’ll get will depend on the variant.

For instance, the V8 Absolute comes with both the Fluffy and Direct Drive attachments. Likewise, the Dyson V10 and V11 Absolute versions.

The A11 Hero only comes with the standard brush, while the Master+ has both tools.

Cleaning comparison

We’ll look at how each product did in the cleaning tests.

First, here are the Dyson cleaning comparison results.

ModelDyson V7Dyson V8Dyson V10Dyson V11 Torque DriveDyson V11 OutsizeDyson V15 Detect
Hard Floors (Surface Test)81.75%99.66%98.84%99.72%100%99.85%

Deep Cleaning94.93%97.7%97.03%100%100%100%

The Dyson V11 Outsize had the best overall scores at 100%, thanks to its wide nozzle and monster airflow.

But the V15 Detect is the better option because of its lighter frame and high-end performance on carpet.

Surprisingly, the V7 was better than the V11 with cleaning surface dirt on carpets – at least with the test scores, but the difference is minimal.

Next, let’s look at the Tineco results.

ModelTineco A10Tineco A11Tineco S12
Hard Floors (Surface Test)99.82%99.88%99.88%
Sand on Hard Floor99.8%99.4%99.9%
Carpet (Surface Test)99.81%99.8%99.34%
Deep Cleaning94.7%96.45%98.3%

The A11 had the best overall scores in the Tineco lineup, outperforming the more expensive Pure One S12.

This was due to the consistent scores in all its surface cleaning tests, where the lowest score was 99.2%.

Surprisingly, Tineco does better than Dyson if you look at the surface debris scores. So the results here are in line with what the airflow number states.

Even the entry-level Tineco A10 did better than the Dyson V7 across the board, particularly on hard surfaces.

Which is better on hard floors?

Even if the results of the Tineco A10 and A11 are higher than the Dyson V7 and V8, I won’t put much weight on them.

First, the difference is only minimal, and second, the Dyson Fluffy tool steers much better than the soft roller version of Tineco.

So whatever advantage Tineco has with pick-up is negated by this.

You can’t go wrong between the Tineco and Dyson when it comes to cleaning hard floors. Make sure to choose a variant with the soft roller attachment.

Sand on hard floor comparison

Another area I tested these vacuums is how it cleans sand.


The V8 Fluffy tool is excellent at cleaning sand on hard floors.

Here are the results for all models.

  1. Dyson V10 Absolute: 100%
  2. Tineco Pure One S12: 99.9%
  3. Tineco A10: 99.8%
  4. Dyson V8 Absolute: 99.5%
  5. Tineco A11: 99.4%
  6. Dyson V11 Torque Drive: 99.4%
  7. Dyson V7 MotorHead: 99.2%

Every vacuum in the list did exceptionally well, scoring in the high 90s. The V10 is the winner on the list and the only option with a 100% score.

Tineco vacuums have a cleaner pick-up than Dyson vacuums if you compare the standard brush attachments.

And it provides better cushion thanks to the rubber wheels versus the ball system of Dyson that can scratch the surface if sand sticks on it.

If you continuously have to deal with sand, I recommend getting a soft roller attachment for efficiency purposes.

Edge cleaning comparison

Let’s look at how each vacuum compares cleaning edges. So for this test, I scattered pet litter in the corner of my home office. It also has a quarter-inch crevice near the wall, so it doubles as a crevice test.

Tineco vs Dyson edge cleaning

The Dyson V8 and V10 did the best factoring efficiency and the amount of dirt it picked up.

These two options left the least amount of pet litter. One reason why these models did better than any of the Tineco vacuums is the wider roller.

Comparing the V8, V10, A10, A11, and S12 rollers, you can see the difference in why the Dyson is more proficient.

Carpet cleaning comparison

Next, we’ll look at how each fared cleaning carpets.


The Dyson V8 and V10 comparison on cleaning low pile carpets.

Here are the Dyson scores.

ModelDyson V7Dyson V8Dyson V10Dyson V11
Carpet (Surface Test)99.97%97.29%98.4%99.26%
Deep Cleaning94.93%97.7%97.03%114%

The V11 did the best on the surface and deep cleaning tests based on the scores above. It isn’t surprising since it has the highest airflow of all the options here.

And here’s the Tineco scores.

ModelTineco A10Tineco A11Tineco S12
Carpet (Surface Test)99.81%99.8%99.34%
Deep Cleaning94.7%96.45%98.3%

The A10 surprisingly outperformed the A11 and S12 with the surface tests, but the S12 was the best in the deep cleaning test.


Overall for surface cleaning tests, the Tineco A10 and A11 did better than their lower-end rivals, the Dyson V7 and V8. However, the V11 Torque Drive is the undisputed winner, overall factoring in the deep cleaning tests.

It was able to pick up 114% of sand on mid-pile carpets, which is the highest score so far. Even in the auto setting, the V11 scored higher than the S12 (99.97% vs. 98.3%).

The beauty of the V11 Torque Drive is its ability to deep clean further than any other options in the list – close to 20 minutes (auto setting).

Tineco comes close with the S12 with the two batteries, but it doesn’t pick up as much.

Large debris comparison

All the options have a soft roller to pick up large debris, such as Cheerios and Fruit loops.


Of the seven options, only the V7 MotorHead cannot since it doesn’t have the Fluffy tool. But the V7 Absolute has this tool, so it’s an option for those who prefer something lighter than the V8.

The V10 and V11 Torque Drive attachments can clean Cheerios and Fruit loops thanks to the adjustable gates. But you’ll have to zigzag it to coax the large items into the gates.

Dyson products did better with longer hair strands and hair pick-up on carpet.

Tineco products are decent, but the A10 and A11 options are a notch below their counterparts in the categories I mentioned.

The Dyson V15 is the best overall on hard floors and carpets thanks to the upgrades, particularly in the standard nozzle.

Dyson V15 hair wrap on carpet

Almost nothing wrapped on the brush roll, even with long 12-inch strands.

The V15’s soft roller doesn’t have any active anti-tangle system but still did well.

Run time comparison

Next, we’ll look at how long each vacuum will run. I did all the tests with a non-powered tool and the main cleaning head attached separately.

Here are the results.

The Dyson V11 Torque Drive and Tineco Pure One S12 are winners here, with the V11 running the furthest with a single battery at a little over 74 minutes.

The Tineco S12, with its two batteries, had the longest overall time at over 102 minutes.

Dust bin comparison

The V7, V8, V10, and V11 utilize Dyson’s hygienic system, making it easier to dispose of dirt without touching it.


Tineco does not have this feature but only relies on a trap door. So dirt is more prone to sticking to the plastic parts.


Filter comparison

Tineco stick vacuums have two filters – a pre-motor and a post-motor filter behind the motor.

Tineco Pure One S12 Filters

Tineco S12 filters – post-motor (left) and pre-motor (right).

The A10 and A11 have the same setup.

Earlier generation Dyson vacuums – V6, V7, and V8, also have two filters – a pre and post-motor HEPA. Some variants like the V7 MotorHead don’t have the second filter, so filtration is compromised.

Dyson V8 filters 1

The Dyson V8 pre-motor and post-motor filter.

The newer Dyson stick vacuums, namely the V10 and V11, only have one filter behind the motor, but it’s a more substantial piece with more surface area.

Noise comparison

I used a sound meter to measure noise from a few feet away, and here are the results.

Tineco A1072.4 dBN/A77.7 dB
Tineco A1172.9 dBN/A75.4 dB
Tineco S1267.2 dBN/A
70.4 dB

The noisiest options are the Dyson V10 and V11, nearing the 80-decibel mark. Not far behind are the Tineco A10 and A11, also surpassing the 75-decibels. Surprisingly, the Pure One S12 is the least noisy at just a little over 70 decibels.

Ergonomics comparison

Out of the seven vacuums featured here, I like the V7 MotorHead the best when it comes to ergonomics since it’s the lightest. It steers the best, avoiding furniture with ease.

The V8 is also good despite being slightly bulkier. While the V10 and V11 offer above-average maneuverability, their size makes it more tiring to use over long stretches.

But it still turns sharper than any of the Tineco products.

One weak point of Tineco vacuums is its steering. I like the smoothness, but it lacks feedback.

Even if you twist your wrist fully, it doesn’t turn as sharply as a Dyson. So it takes more turns to avoid furniture than a Dyson.

Maintenance comparison

These vacuums need some upkeep for them to run smoothly. One of which is cleaning the filters. I noticed that Tineco filters clog at a more rapid pace than the Dyson. So you’ll have to clean more often.

In a dirty environment, you have to clean it up to twice a month. Dyson does a better job with its cyclonic filtration, so the filters stay clean longer. However, you’ll have to clean it once a month.

The HEPA filters of these vacuums are also washable. However, you’ll have to replace the Tineco filter every year.

Tineco A10 andA11 filter

In contrast, Dyson utilizes a “lifetime” filter, so technically, you don’t have to replace it as long as you clean it at suggested intervals.

However, I’d still recommend buying extra filters to minimize downtime for both vacuums.

Tools comparison

I’ll share these photos of the tools that come with each of the Tineco and Dyson vacuums.

Which is better, Tineco vs. Dyson?

Both brands offer compelling features that make both excellent options. Choosing will boil down to your preferences and how much you’re willing to spend.

Tineco offers a large number of attachments. Its removable battery is easier to replace than the built-in ones in Dyson.

4 Reasons to consider buying a Tineco vacuum

  1. Less expensive: Tineco vacuums are cheaper than a Dyson product and offer more value for the dollar you spend.
  2. More attachments: You’ll get more tools, which extends the reach for cleaning areas up high. Or cramped spots that a Dyson vacuum may have trouble cleaning.
  3. Removable batteries: All Tineco stick vacuums have detachable batteries that make them easy to replace.
  4. LED headlights: These lights help with visibility, especially with tracking dust under the furniture.
  5. Trigger lock: Keeps the trigger in the “on” position, so you don’t have to squeeze it continually.

Dyson offers better polish with its products. These vacuums steer better, and the hygienic system makes it less messy to dispose of dirt.

4 Reasons to consider buying a Dyson vacuum

  1. Better steering: Dyson products steer much better than any of the Tineco products. It’s more responsive and easier to move around.
  2. Great on carpets: The V11 Torque Drive is the vacuum I’d recommend if you’re looking for a cordless vacuum inside homes with lots of carpets.
  3. Larger dust capacity: This applies to the newer options like the V10, V11 Torque Drive, and Outsize that can hold more dirt.
  4. Easier to empty: The hygienic system makes disposing of dirt straightforward. There’s no need to pull the dirt out from the dust container.

The Verdict: Choosing One Will Depend on Your Preference

I’ve laid out all the reasons you should consider a Dyson or Tineco—choosing which will boil down to personal inclinations.

Dyson offers a more polished product with better steering and a better-designed dust container. It’s easier to empty and better on carpet if you opt for the V11 or V15 variants.

Tineco is the less expensive option with more tools, a removable battery, and a trigger lock absent with Dyson.

In most of the tests, it cleans as well as a Dyson, so it provides more value for your dollar.

Regardless of which brand you select, you won’t go wrong with either. Make sure to make a checklist on what features you prioritize and make a decision from there.
