Robot vacuum cleaners are no longer a novelty. These are a real help at home, save time and are more and more efficient. There are hundreds of models on the market that successfully replace the classic vacuum cleaner and the mop.
Today I will present the Symbo xBot 5 PRO WiFi + mop robot vacuum cleaner, a high-performance model that, in addition to the suction function, also has the wipe function (mop).

What the package contains
The Symbo xBot 5 PRO WiFi + mop package is quite generous: in addition to the robot and the charging station, it also has a 2-in-1 container (for dirt and water), 2 mop cloths, remote control, 3 replacement HEPA filters, 2 side brushes replacement, magnetic tape (1 m), 1 brush for cleaning filters, 2 AAA batteries and of course, the user manual.
Elegant, it has a height of only 7.9 cm which allows it to clean efficiently in hard to reach places, such as under sofas or cabinets.
As the name suggests, this robot vacuum cleaner can be controlled via the Symbo Home Blue application on a smartphone or tablet, via a wifi connection.
The front has 2 long brushes, which allow cleaning even in the corners of the rooms and also helps to clean along the walls. In practice, it works by sweeping dirt in the middle of the vacuum cleaner, where it is picked up by a large spiral brush made of bristles and rubber blades, the dirt is then vacuumed.
- Auto: using navigation the robot automatically cleans to systematically cover the entire room
- Along the walls: the robot focuses on cleaning along the walls and in the corners
- Local: the robot cleans an area of approximately 2 x 2 meters
- Double: in this way, the robot sucks the space 2 times
- Max: in this way, the robot increases its power and uses Smart GYRO navigation
- Random: the robot moves randomly without using navigation
The suction power is high, so it effectively removes dirt and can easily vacuum even short-carpeted carpets.
The 2-in-1 container is used for both vacuuming and wiping. Symbo xBot 5 PRO wipes the floor with a microfiber cloth, which is constantly moistened by the water tank. Humidification is actively controlled by an electronically controlled water pump, which shuts off the water if necessary and there is no risk of wetting the floor. Moreover, Symbo xBot 5 PRO can vacuum and wipe at the same time , being one of the few devices on the market that offers this benefit.
Symbo xBot 5 PRO is equipped with a double filter (primary filter and HEPA filter). The Hepa filter captures fine dust, dust mites or animal allergens and the primary filter prevents clogging of the HEPA filter, providing efficient cleaning.
Symbo xBot 5 PRO is equipped with infrared sensors that prevent it from falling down stairs or other high places. In the package you will also find a magnetic tape, with a length of 1 m, which you can use to define the areas where you do not want to move / clean the robot.
Control with the application
The Symbo xBot 5 PRO robot vacuum cleaner can be easily controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet using the Symbo Home Blue application. The application can be downloaded either through Google Play or Apple App Store.
Using the Symbo Home Blue app, you can also move the robot manually with the arrows, change the cleaning modes, set the cleaning schedule, set the container water pump flow, monitor the map of the cleaned area, view statistics, receive error messages and set other functions.
Personally I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Symbo xBot 5 PRO WiFi + mop robot vacuum cleaner! Multiple cleaning modes, mop function, well-structured Symbo Home Blue application, low noise (60 decibels even at high suction power), replacement accessories. From my point of view, the price / quality ratio is very good!
