Between Roborock Q Revo vs Dreame L10S Ultra, which is the one standing out? I’m more on the edge of the Dreame L10S Ultra in this competition.
The Dreame L10S Ultra boasts more advanced obstacle-avoidance technology and a relatively more versatile self-empty dock. Though its pick-up efficiency is a bit lower than that of the Roborock Q Revo, the overall cleaning performance does satisfy me and is even better than average.
The Roborock Q Revo, on the other hand, is weaker in obstacle avoidance but better in cleaning performance owing to the fairly stronger suction and mop-spinning speed. It also features a similar functioning auto-empty and auto-washing/drying dock as its rival. In short, if obstacle avoidance does not matter to you, get the Q Revo for a more satisfying pick-up efficiency.

Roborock Q Revo Vs Dreame L10S Ultra: Differences
Overall, the Dreame L10S Ultra is superior to the Roborock Q Revo. Specifically, the L10S Ultra wins 2-1 against the Q Revo. The comparison is broken down into five categories; let’s read on to see which will best suit your needs.
Winner: Roborock Q Revo
|Roborock Q Revo||Dreame L10S Ultra|
|Max airflow (cfm)||~18||~15|
|Max suction (kPa)||~0.24||~0.21|
On the paper, the Q Revo has a slightly higher suction power than the L10S Ultra. The suction power of the Q Revo is 5500 Pa, while that of the L10S Ultra is 5300 Pa. And this is also true in the real power tests. With a stronger suction, the Roborock Q Revo will exhibit greater cleaning performance over its rival, given that both of the bots feature a similar main brushroll system.
|Pick-up Efficiency (%)||Roborock Q Revo||Dreame L10S Ultra|
The stronger suction of the Q Revo does show up in the carpet cleaning test. I scattered sand, cereals, and rice on medium carpets and ran these two bots at the max suction mode. The results show that in the surface and deep cleaning tests on carpets, the Q Revo does a relatively better job. The pick-up efficiency of the Dreame L10S Ultra is a bit lower but noticeably higher than average tested numbers (~70-78%).
|Pick-up Efficiency (%)||Roborock Q Revo||Dreame L10S Ultra|
|Small & heavy debris||~93%||~91%|
On bare floors, both bots do an excellent job of picking up different types of debris, scoring above 90% efficiency. However, the Roborock Q Revo exhibits a little bit higher pick-up efficiency than the other.
For the crevice cleaning tests, the Q Revo outperforms the Dreame L10S Ultra. The L10S Ultra seems to fail the test since it barely removes sand from the 3-mm crevice on the hard surface. The better crevice pick-up efficiency of the Roborock Q Revo can be attributed to the main brushroll housing design, offering a better seal to the surface.
These two robot vacuums can collect hair on the carpet and hard floor very well. They can pick up both long and short hair strands and small hair turfs effortlessly. However, when it comes to hair-resistance efficiency, they cannot get optimal scores, especially with long hair strands from 7 to 10 inches.
Though both of them have all rubber brush roll, long hair strands get wrapped on the brush noticeably. This is also a common problem with many robot vacs. However, with the rubber brush roller, removing the tangled hair is much easier compared to the traditional bristle brush roller.
Yet, when comparing the amount of tangled hair on the brush in the test using 10-inch hair strands, the Roborock Q Revo proves to have better hair-resistance efficiency than the Dreame L10S Ultra.
Design & Convenience
Winner: Dreame L10S Ultra
Brush roll system
The Roborock Q Revo and Dreame L10S Ultra boast a single rubber brush roll and a side brush. The main rubber brushroll will help reduce the hair-tangle issue while making cleaning easier, compared to the bots using bristle brushrolls.
The brushroll housing of the Q Revo provides a greater seal to the floor than that of the L10S Ultra owing to the squeezee thing (located above the cleaning mop pads). A better seal, combined with greater suction, results in the higher pick-up efficiency of the Q Revo, notably in the crevice cleaning test.
Navigation & Mapping
Both of them use the top-mounted LiDAR for mapping and navigating when cleaning your house. The LiDAR technology is recognized for its highly efficient and quick home mapping, even in the first cleaning run. After testing, the Q Revo and L10S Ultra show comparable mapping speed and precision, so they are tied in this category.
They are also equipped with carpet sensors and cliff sensors. The carpet sensors will let them know when they encounter carpeted areas and then lift the mopping pads to avoid damping the carpets. The cliff sensors will prevent the bots from falling down the stairs, contributing to enhancing the lifespan of the appliances.
The Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock Q Revo all feature the obstacle avoidance function, but the L10S Ultra performs fairly better than its counterpart. The L10S Ultra has a more advanced obstacle-avoidance technology, named AI Action, featuring an RGB camera and 3D structured light to detect objects. On the other hand, the Q Revo utilizes Reactive Tech obstacle avoidance, featuring structured light to realize obstacles on the floor.
The utilization of an RGB camera makes the L10S Ultra capture and define objects much quicker and more precise than the Q Revo. Specifically, the Dreame L10S Ultra can detect and go around most of the objects I put in the test, including socks, a charging dock with a folded cord, fake pet waste, and a running shoe.
The Q Revo, on the other hand, comes close to these objects and slightly bumps into them before turning in another way. It does not avoid the socks and seems to pick up them.
Additionally, when testing with stretched cords, the L10S Ultra is still the better. It does not run over and drag the cord around like the Q Revo, but its side brush accidentally catches the cord. So, it is better to clean all the cords on the floor before cleaning. Besides, you can set the no-go zones for the areas cluttered with cords and wires to prevent unexpected accidents when the bots do their cleaning job.
|Roborock Q Revo||Dreame L10S Ultra|
|Capacity||5200 mAh||5200 mAh|
|Battery life||~ 180 minutes||~ 210 minutes|
|Charging time||~ 6 hours||~ 6 hours|
The Dreame L10S Ultra shows a longer runtime than the Roborock Q Revo, though they boast the same battery capacity. In the lowest power mode, the runtime of L10S Ultra can reach approx. 210 minutes, while that of the Q Revo is about 180 minutes.
However, this difference does not notably matter as both of them have recharge & resume functions. This means if they are low on battery in the middle of the cleaning, they will return to the charging dock and get back to the cleaning where they left off.
Winner: Dreame L10S Ultra
The Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock Q Revo can be controlled via the manual button on the top and the connected apps. The manual control buttons of the Q Revo and L10S Ultra are basic and straightforward, allowing you to start the cleaning and send the bot to the base.
For the app control, besides the basic functions like manual control, I can adjust the home maps by adding the no-go zones and virtual wall. Their apps also allow me to schedule the cleaning time and customize the cleaning settings for each session. They also support multi-floor map saving, including 3 maps for the L10S Ultra and 4 maps for the Q Revo. Moreover, they are compatible with voice assistants like Alexa and Google Home, so I can direct them to clean specific rooms with my voice.
However, the Dreame L10S Ultra with the RGB camera offers the option to use the bots as a CCTV camera in your home. You can easily check on your pets and specific rooms in your house via the app connected with the L10S Ultra. Besides, you can direct the bot remotely using the virtual button on the screen, adding more convenience to your experience.
Cleaning & Maintenance
The Dreame L10S Ultra and Roborock Q Revo all come with a self-empty dock. This dock also features auto-mop washing & drying and auto-refilling the water into the bots’ water bins. However, the Dreame L10S Ultra’s dock has an auto-adding cleaning solution function, reducing the guesswork like when using the Q Revo.
With the auto-empty function, the dock removes all the dust in the bots’ dustbins. All use disposable bags, so you have to buy extra dustbag packs periodically. The dock of L10S Ultra has a slightly larger dust bag, 3 liters, than that of the Q Revo (2.7 liters). Meanwhile, the Q Revo has larger water tanks for its clean base, about double the capacity of the L10S Ultra’s tanks.
The self-washing and drying functions of the base of L10S Ultra and Q Revo work in the same mechanism and show impressive results. However, when put into comparison, the Q Revo demonstrates better mop washing efficiency as its mopping pads look cleaner. Meanwhile, stain residues are noticed on the L10S Ultra mopping pad after the self-washing process.
However, when it comes to the ease of cleaning the base, the Dreame L10S Ultra shows up in the first place. The L10S Ultra dock has three control buttons supporting me to clean the base without bringing the whole dock under the water faucet. After removing the cleaning grill, just by pressing the home button on the top of the dock, I easily filled the cleaning tray with water from the water tank. Then, when holding down the home button again for about 3 seconds, the base will remove the dirty water into the separate tank.
The Q Revo does not have this function, but its mop-cleaning tray can be detached and easily rubbed under running water. Remember to let the tray dry before re-attaching it to the dock.
|Roborock Q Revo||Dreame L10S Ultra|
|Working||~60 – 67 dB||~58 – 64 dB|
|Self-emptying||~ 80 dB||~ 73 dB|
When measuring the noise level of the Roborock Q Revo vs Dreame L10S Ultra, the L10S Ultra is quieter in both working and self-emptying processes. Yet, the noise difference when these bots are vacuuming is not so significant that it can be told by bare ears. But when it comes to the auto-empty noise, the Q Revo’s base is truly louder.
The Roborock Q Revo and Dreame L10S Ultra all feature dual-spinning mop pads that can be lifted by 7 mm when encountering carpets. In general, their mopping performance is good, even better than the average passive mopping bots, but the Q Revo efficiency is fairly higher.
Particularly, when testing them to clean coffee stains, the Q Revo cleans almost everything in the first pass, while the L10S Ultra needs 1-2 more passes to get the same result. This can be attributed to the higher spinning speed at 200 rpm of the Q Revo, compared to the 180 rpm spinning speed of the L10S Ultra.
