Dreame L10S Pro vs Cecotec Conga 9090 AI, among those from poco reviewed were the two robot vacuum cleaners that most convinced and surprised me. They have many points in common but also different solutions that could generate doubts about a possible purchase and therefore... off the comparison.

Only the height is in favor of the Dreame, which is almost a centimeter lower and allows you to reach even under particularly low furniture. The buttons are located in the upper part but, in addition to switching on and returning to the base, the Dreame has the one for "spot" cleaning which allows quick cleaning of an area without accessing the application. On the other hand, the Cecotec Conga 9090 AI comes with a remote control that allows you to control the robot and perform many of the main functions. Speaking of equipment, the Cecotec comes fully stocked: soft roller to alternate with the already mounted silicone one, 2 spare side brushes, 4 washing cloths. In the Dreame there is nothing beyond the basic equipment. Application On this chapter I recognize that my judgment is conditioned by the habit of using the Dreame app (also very similar to Roborock, Xiaomi and others). It is well organised, essential but complete and always snappy. The companion app included in the Xiaomi Home application is available for both Android and Apple. Dreametech application The Cecotec application, which is specific to this model, is organized around AI functions and it is not always easy to find what you are looking for. Furthermore, between the screens there are frequent waits and a bug on notifications that has not yet been resolved. Overall it is well made, especially given the amount of functions and options it has to manage. The Cecotec 9090 AI application is available for both Android and Apple iOS Cecotec Mapping and Artificial Intelligence application Cecotec 9090 AI Dreame L10S Both the Cecotec and the Dreame use the maximum technology available. A Lidar laser sensor that can map the room in seconds and offers great help in orientation within the home. To this is added on both the 3D optical sensor which allows you to recognize any obstacles such as cables, slippers, animal droppings, etc. This last function is managed and exploited differently in the two models. In the Dreame L10S Pro, obstacle recognition is completely managed by the robot and there is no particular option among the application settings. The sensor is not always precise and even if it is able to identify obstacles, it tends to get too close before elaborating a new trajectory. Artificial intelligence Cecotec 9090 AI In the Cecotec Conga 9090 AI we have a completely opposite situation. Through the app we can configure exactly what the robot should recognize: animals, objects, carpets (of which it also takes a photograph) and even if a room is occupied or messy so as to come back at a later time. All very nice except that the system is too sensitive and false positives are very frequent, such as the joints of my tiles which are mistaken for electric cables. Suction and performance Both models are extremely powerful and reach suction pressure values unimaginable just two years ago. The Dreame L10S Pro stands at 5.300Pa which are all seen when cleaning hard floors, but especially on carpets and rugs where power makes the difference. The Cecotec 9090 AI even reaches 10.000Pa even if the results are roughly the same and the difference in practice is not so evident. Certainly in favor of Cecotec is the provision of two different rollers, one soft for floors, one hard for carpets, which are able to optimize cleaning even if in practice it is not convenient to alternate the two accessories. Dreame L10S Pro Cecotec 9090 AI floor washing In this section we find the most substantial differences because the two models have a very different approach to the washing function. The Dreame L10S Pro adopts two cloths that rotate up to 180 times per minute while also pressing on the floor. The friction generated is remarkable and is able to remove even stubborn or old stains, not at the levels of a real mop but we are starting to get closer. Furthermore, the dreame cloths lift automatically when they meet a carpet, thus allowing simultaneous washing and vacuuming even when you have carpets in the house. The tank is 190ml, therefore medium in size. The Cecotec Conga 9090 AI instead uses a cloth that vibrates, also generating friction on the floor. The results are clearly better than the classic static cloths but still inferior to those of the Dreame. Also the vibrating cloth is not able to lift and we would have to replace\/remove the attachment to vacuum the carpets which would otherwise automatically be avoided. The 270 ml tank is remarkable and guarantees a great autonomy. Dreame L10S Pro vs Cecotec Conga 9090 AI | Conclusions Leaving aside the points awarded, Dreame L10S Pro and Cecotec 9090 AI are two excellent robots and it is normal that some indecision arises in the choice. I appreciated the Dreame L10S Pro for the superb general quality of the product, for the performance but above all for the floor washing function where it excels on a par with much more expensive products such as its older brother Dreame L10S Ultra. The list price is €599 which reflects the value of the product, but during Black Friday it also dropped to €499. Del Cecotec Conga 9090 AI is an excellent product, valid in all functions but in terms of quality it is a step below the Dreame. A few more arrows in its bow: the futuristic approach of artificial intelligence which however needs to be perfected and the possibility of expanding the product with a self-emptying base, the Conga Home 10000 with which it is compatible. The list price is €599 but this too is often on offer at €479.
