Xiaomi and its sub-brand Dreame have introduced to the global market a new premium handheld wireless vacuum cleaner called Xiaomi Dreame XR.
Earlier I did a detailed test on the Dreame V9P and still use it on an ongoing basis.
Today I will try to find out the main differences between the two Dreame XR and V9P models and is it worth it to overpay?
The price tag for a powerful Xiaomi Dreame XR handheld vacuum cleaner will be about $250. It’s $ 70 more expensive for V9P’s older brother.
But if you walk along with the main features, the new model of a hand-held vacuum cleaner from Dreame received the best technical specs.
For example, suction power has increased from 20 thousand to 22 thousand Pa, while the noise level has become a little less – 68 dB. In addition, additional nozzles were added, but the battery life remained the same.
Of course, the technical part is quite tempting, but I’m still wondering how the premium cordless vacuum cleaner will behave in practice.

Like the previous Dreame vacuum cleaner, the new modification comes in a rather large white cardboard box.
On the front part, you can see the picture of the vacuum cleaner, the name of the model and the main functions.
Inside the box, each component lay in a separate plastic bag or box. During transportation, I did not have any damaged parts.
I want to note right away that the configuration of the Dreame XR is very similar to the older brother of the Dreame V9P. Most consumables, nozzles, and other items are interchangeable.
First of all, in the box, I found instructions for use, an extension pipe nozzle, a power adapter and two tube nozzles with different nozzle sizes.
Also, the base on which all components are attached, for example, the vacuum cleaner itself and all additional nozzles.
Directly, the base itself is used as a charging dock for a vacuum cleaner. In addition, screws are included to fix the base on the wall in an upright position.
Further, a small turbo brush and two additional brushes for ordinary cleaning and carpets. I will tell about each a little later separately.
The main difference between the two models of vertical wireless vacuum cleaners is the presence of a special corrugated hose. As practice has shown, it is very convenient in hard-to-reach places. To be honest, on the Dreame V9P model it was sorely lacking.
The appearance of both Xiaomi Dreame XR and Dreame V9P models are completely identical. The difference is only in the color scheme.
The remaining control buttons remained in the same place. For example, the red button on the handle to start the vacuum cleaner, and on the back, there is a switch of three modes.
I want to note that the main one is the middle mode, since it is optimal both in terms of power and autonomy.
Of course, the maximum mode can be used when the surface is very dirty. For example, sand, earth, wool, and other heavy garbage.
All garbage is collected in a transparent container with a capacity of half a liter. Cleaning the trash can is very simple – you need to press the red button and all the garbage will fall by gravity into the trash can.
A filter element is installed inside the garbage cylindrical container. The vacuum cleaner received five degrees of air purification. The first stage is passing through a silicone skirt, then through a metal mesh. At these stages, large debris is screened out. Then air goes through a cyclone filter. The last stage of cleaning is a two-layer replaceable filter, where foam rubber is used inside, and the external part is a HEPA filter.
This air purification system provides clean air in your apartment and holds 99.9% of all kinds of dirt, dust and even a dust mite. Below you can see my filter of the old Dreame V9P and the new Dreame XR. Naturally, the filter itself can be purchased separately and below I will leave a link.
As I mentioned, the premium Dreame XR vacuum cleaner received three main nozzles. This is a small turbo brush, which is designed for cleaning furniture, for example, pillows, bedding or soft toys. It has hard bristles and can easily remove the dust mite.
Next comes a large turbo brush with a rigid turbo brush roller. This nozzle is designed for cleaning carpets.
The latest standard nozzle for cleaning hard surfaces, such as linoleum, tile or laminate. It has a main roller with gray soft nap, and red inserts are more rigid.
All these three nozzles have their own motors, which rotate the rollers with a fast speed of up to 100 thousand revolutions per minute.
If necessary, the roller in each brush can be removed and washed. But the brush itself should not be washed, since a separate motor is installed inside it.
As for the build quality and materials used on the Dreame XR, I have no complaints, however, as with the previous generation V9P.
Performance and cleaning
The main difference between the new vertical wireless vacuum cleaner Xiaomi Dreame XR is the increased productivity. The next generation of the vacuum cleaner received 450 watts of power, and the previous generation of the V9P had only 400 watts.
The suction power was similarly improved and shows 22k Pa, instead of 20k Pa. Our hero received a completely new electric motor that generates 140 AW of power, the previous generation had 120 AW. The technology used Space 3.0 Turbo remained the same on both generations.
I want to note that the Dreame XR got the same 2500 mAh battery capacity. As you can know, with increasing battery capacity, the weight of the device also increases. Therefore, the manufacturer did not decide to increase the battery capacity so that each user could control the vacuum cleaner without any problems.
By the way, the battery life has remained the same, despite the increased power of the vacuum cleaner. For example, during a low mode – the battery life will be about 1 hour, and at maximum mode – up to 10 minutes. A full charge will take about 3.5 hours.
If you choose between two vacuum cleaners, the Dreame XR model will definitely win. Since in practice, it showed the best result during cleaning.
Of course, I can’t do both models perfectly cope with the tasks. But a more productive version wins, both in speed and time spent on cleaning.
I conducted several tests, for example, cleaning a wool blanket, on a hard surface, carpets, and even animal hair. The result was positive for me and the new Xiaomi Dreame XR showed its worth.
Conclusion and reviews
Xiaomi Dreame XR is an impeccable wireless vacuum cleaner that has received a large number of nozzles, good performance, and battery life.
Of course, if you have a limited budget, then I can recommend the previous Dreame V9P model without complaints.
I could not relate to the new Dreame XR model without flaws either – this is a rather long charging time of about 3.5 hours and a rather high price compared to its predecessor.
Xiaomi Dreame XR: Price and where to buy cheaper?
Now, each user can order a new model of the Xiaomi Dreame XR handheld vacuum cleaner at a price of $248.49 with a 29% discount.
I will also leave a link from the Dreame V9P versions, which currently costs you $183.99 with a 36% discount.
Both models are worthy competitors to their main competitors, such as the Dyson V11 or Dyson V8.
