Some comments from customer:

“Amazing battery life. Rated 120min to 150min but actual time was ~180min(!!). MUCH better than the V3s (80-90min). Due to the huge battery life, it can clean my entire 960sqft apt with no problems. It’s insane.

Larger dust bin than the V3s, which of course means it can hold a lot more dirt, hair, etc. Also means you don’t have to empty out the bin as much.

Auto docks a lot better than V3s. Out of almost 2 weeks of usage, it was only not able to dock on its own, ONCE.

Never snagged on anything…..”

Some comments from customer:

“This vacuum met all my expectations and then some! I knew for the price I wasn’t getting a super smart one that maps out your rooms and keeps them in memory but for the price I didn’t expect it. I let it loose in the living room with chairs and two couches as well as a cat tower. It went in random mode until it ran low on a charge where after it parked itself in its charger. I think it lasted close to three hours. Except for a few corners the room was spotless.”

Summary: So which one is better? The price, working time, clean performance…… All of them is similar, It’s quite difficult to choose. For Anker is just new company in the robot vacuum market, maybe has some software problem, and not Intelligence like predecessors. But I am more optimistic about the prospects for Anker.
