Realme TechLife Review Robot Vacuum Cleaner

New Realme TechLife Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Smart Wet Cleaning and Floor Friction: A Complete Review 2022. Just a week and a half ago, there was a presentation of Realme, at which the company presented its first Realme TechLife robot vacuum cleaner with a suction power of 3000 Pa, 38 sensors, lidar, an advanced wet cleaning mode, the ability to individually set the suction power and water supply for each room and other interesting features … But is he so good and is there any sins in him? Let’s figure it out.

Buy Realme TechLife Robot Vacuum Cleaner on Aliexpress


The robot vacuum cleaner is delivered in two cardboard boxes, one of which contains a reservoir for smart wet cleaning. The main box contains the robot and its equipment. On the main page, you can see colorful printing with the image of the robot itself and the company logo.

On the side faces there is also a logo and model name. There is a convenient plastic carry handle on top.

At the back are the main specifications, of which a high suction force of 3000 Pa can be distinguished, a low noise level during the operation of the robot, smart wet cleaning, 38 sensors and the ability to save up to 5 room maps.

The package includes the Realme TechLife robot vacuum cleaner itself, a charging base, a power adapter, two side brushes, marked left and right, a tool for cleaning the dust container and central brush, a spare HEPA filter and foam pad, a short instruction manual in English language, as well as a guide for installing the application and setting up the device.

By the way, you can buy this robot vacuum cleaner and see other devices of the Realme TechLife ecosystem in their store using the links below.



The charging base is made of matte black plastic of good quality. Above there is a work indicator and a company logo. On the front there is an insert made of black gloss, under which there is a sensor that helps the robot to park.

At the bottom there are four rubberized legs and a compartment that allows you to bring the wire to one side or the other. On the back of the base is an instruction manual with installation recommendations.

The robot vacuum cleaner from Realme is finished in austere black except for the yellow rotating laser sensor, which reflects the color scheme of the company logo. The top panel is made of tempered glass, on which dust and fingerprints are clearly visible. It is even harder to polish than matte plastic.

Above is installed a lidar for navigation, which covers objects at a distance of 8 meters and rotates at a speed of 6 revolutions 360 degrees per second. The lidar itself is made in the corporate yellow color, which makes it stand out favorably.

There are two control buttons next to the lidar: start / pause and return to base for charging. They are rubberized, tactilely pleasant to press and have a moon-white backlight. A spring-loaded bumper with a rubber strip is installed at the front. There are 9 IR sensors under the tinted glass.

On the right side of the bumper there is a slot for the side sensor. It is he who helps to determine the exact distance to the object, and thanks to this, the robot can move as close to the walls as possible for more thorough cleaning. There is a speaker grill and exhaust air vents on the side of the cabinet.

On the bottom of the robot, three height sensors can be seen that will prevent the robot from falling off the table or steps, but fail my exclusive sweep-edge ottoman cleaning test. Next, there are two quick-detachable side brushes and a guide roller, which, if necessary, can be pulled out and cleaned of coiled hair. Two contacts for charging.

There is a battery compartment under the swivel castor. Battery capacity: 5200 mAh at 16.8V. Two drive wheels with excellent tread, but a small diameter of only 6 centimeters. However, this does not prevent the robot from crossing thresholds up to 2 centimeters high. The following are the main features that unpleasantly surprise at a robot price of $ 400+.

The turbo brush module is not floating, this can reduce the suction power on uneven surfaces due to a loose fit. But this is forgivable, but when the water tank was connected, it was found that one part of it practically does not touch the floor, which negates almost all the functionality of smart wet cleaning. The frame that fixes the brush is attached using conventional plastic hooks. The turbo brush has three rows of bristles and three rows of rubber petals.

There is a diagnostic port and a reset button on the back under the container. You can also see the nozzle of the engine, through which rarefied air is created in the container, and the dust is sucked in directly. The standard equipment comes with a 600 ml dust collector. It is made of high quality plastic. The suction port is covered with a shutter to prevent debris from spilling out during removal. There is a primary filter in the form of a fine nylon mesh. On top of the container, under a separate lid, there is a HEPA fine filter and a fine foam pad.

There is a primary filter in the form of a fine nylon mesh. On top of the container, under a separate lid, there is a HEPA fine filter and a fine foam pad.

Now let’s move closer to the tank for smart wet cleaning, which must be purchased separately, and this is another plus 50 bucks to the already considerable amount. The module comes with ten disposable wipes and two reusable rags. The module has a dust collector with a volume of 350 milliliters.

For convenient use, the dust collector can be detached from the tank, for this you need to lift the handle and pull up … Inside the container in the upper part there is also a triple filtration system in the form of a mesh, foam rubber and a HEPA filter.

The water tank has a volume of 300 milliliters. Contacts are located on the side. which operate a solenoid valve that regulates the intensity of the water supply. Water enters the napkin through four holes in the bottom of the tank. The napkin itself is firmly attached with Velcro.

The docking station for recharging the robot is outwardly quite standard. Above there is an indicator and a company logo. There is a cable compartment under the cover below. Power adapter for 20V with a maximum current of 1A. Charging is quite long: from 0% to 100% takes up to 6 hours.

Now let’s move on to the app called Realme Link. Of the minuses, it can be noted that the robot only connects to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. Fortunately, I have two ranges. There were no connection problems. After the first passage of the robot, the application will build an accurate map of the entire available area of ​​the room, which is automatically divided into rooms and stored in memory. You can store up to 5 cards in total. The app is in English, but it’s intuitive. In the main settings, you can: set a cleaning schedule by choosing the time, days of the week, suction power, degree of humidification and even the desired rooms. Then you can set the time when the robot vacuum cleaner should not bother you. Manual control of the robot from a smartphone is implemented crookedly. The robot does not respond to button presses on the remote control or does so with a huge delay. Further, by a sound signal, you can find the robot vacuum cleaner, select one of the five saved maps, switch from the S-shaped floor cleaning mode to the Y-shaped one, disable the cleaning mode settings for each room, disable or enable the automatic increase in the suction power when driving on carpets, view the cleaning log, adjust the volume and language of voice notifications. The choice is still available in Chinese and English voice acting. You can also track the status of consumables.

On the main page, you can set forbidden zones and sign each one, install virtual walls, mark zones without wet cleaning, as well as sign them. In the map editing mode, you can combine several rooms into one or divide a room into zones. Customize the name for each room and set an individual cleaning mode for each room by adjusting the suction power and water level. It is also available to customize the sequence of cleaning rooms. It is also possible to manually switch cleaning modes: only dry or wet cleaning and at the same time dry and wet. There are four levels of water supply for different surfaces:

  • dry
  • minimum
  • normal
  • maximum

And four modes of suction power:

  • Quiet – the suction power is 500 Pa, the noise level does not exceed 53 dB, in this mode it will work for 300 minutes.
  • Normal – 1200 Pa, 56 dB, will work up to 180 minutes,
  • Turbo – 2500 Pa, noise up to 65 dB, 160 minutes,
  • maximum mode – 3000 Pa, noise 69 dB, 120 minutes of continuous operation.

Summing up, I can say that the Realme robot vacuum cleaner turned out to be very ambiguous and, despite the fact that this is the first device from Realme of such a plan, there are a sufficient number of shortcomings that are difficult to forgive at a price of 800 dollars. In my copy, one part of the water container did not touch the floor, which nullified all the smart functionality of wet cleaning with the separation of areas and rooms. An unpleasant moment was the work of the robot only with Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz, a buggy control panel, although no one uses it. And the cherry on top was the completely failed bed cleaning test, which you can watch in the video review. I hope you found this review helpful and you wereted your time. Good luck and good mood to everyone.
