A couple of days ago we tested a new model from the company 360 called S7, but today we will talk about the next generation of a robot vacuum cleaner called Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM.
The price of vacuum cleaners is slightly different, but whether there will be a difference in performance, you will learn in a detailed review and test below.
Prices for the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM start at $ 529.99, which is slightly higher than the new S7 model, although the specifications are almost similar.
According to the manufacturer, laser navigation and increased suction power, which now amounts to 2100 Pa, received a big update. Besides, the Mijia STYJ02YM has two cleaning modes – dry and wet, we will talk about each separately in the cleaning section.
Therefore, I suggest starting a full review of the Xiaomi smart robot vacuum cleaner from unpacking.

Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Unboxing
In a typical Xiaomi style, the Mijia STYJ02YM comes in plain brown packaging. Inside, each element of the robot vacuum cleaner is protected by foam, which does not damage the vacuum cleaner itself during transportation.
The kit has everything you need. Only a Chinese-style plug adapter, but if you recall the robot from 360, there are several plug adapters for different markets, which is very convenient.
The Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM delivery kit includes, in addition to the vacuum cleaner robot itself: a charging station, a mat, a power cable, a water tank, a cleaning tool, an additional filter, and brief instructions.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Design
In my opinion, currently, Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM is the best robot vacuum cleaner in the test. The robot vacuum cleaner received a glossy black color, which looks more interesting than the standard white color! The color of the Mijia STYJ02YM is very similar to the Roborock S55, which is also black.
But black has its drawbacks, for example, dust on black is visible and the glossy surface is not the most practical since it easily leaves stains and scratches.
The quality of workmanship and assembly is impeccable, nothing rattles and creaks. Other manufacturers offer significantly more expensive models, but with worse materials and build quality. Overall, Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM leaves a perfect impression.
Like the Mijia STYJ02YM itself, the charging station also has a glossy black color. The appearance is similar to that of most other models. There are two charging connectors on the front side and a charging cable on the backside.
The dimensions and weight of the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM robot remained almost the same – it is 35.00 x 35.00 x 9.45 cm and 3.6 kg. Therefore, it is the same bulky robot vacuum cleaner that is difficult to carry.
On the upper part of the vacuum cleaner, there are two control buttons – this is the start/stop of cleaning and returning home. There is also a tower with an LDS laser sensor and a lid that hides a dust container inside.
On the bottom surface are the main rotational brush of black and orange color, two large wheels and one small for changing direction. Also, there is one brush for selecting debris and dust.
As I said, this model has a container for wet cleaning and a cloth that is attached to the bottom.
Around the case, there are 12 sensors on the sides and lower edges that help the robot to efficiently clean your home without the extra cost of battery power.
In general, the design and appearance of the new generation robot vacuum cleaner Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM do not stand out, but it is still a well-built vacuum cleaner that will serve you for a long time.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Performance and Setup
The first thing I wanted to tell was about the brains of the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM robot, since it received the quad-core Cortex-A7 processor and the Mali 400 GPU graphic model for image processing, so the information processing speed increased significantly.
Also, the construction of a card with the processing of information from sensors combined with SLAM algorithms on a mobile device has become faster.
Also, it is worth noting about the work of the new generation LDS laser navigation. The working range is up to 8 meters, scanning speed up to 360° per second, and scanning circles can reach 6 circles. This figure is higher than the previous generation. The circle rotation speed or scanning frequency reached 2016 times/sec and the accuracy deviation is less than 2%.
Compared to the previous generation Mijia robot scanning, the scanning laser navigation system has a high measurement accuracy and the laser range is longer. The work efficiency will certainly be improved.
The device is very simple. All you need is the Mi Home app and Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM in our test will be found automatically and directly. After that, you just need to follow the instructions in the app.
After the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM robot vacuum cleaner has been successfully integrated into the application, a firmware update may be available.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Application
Let’s take a quick look at the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM app. The Mi Home application is not just a separate application for vacuum cleaner robots, but an application that supports all Xiaomi devices. These include lamps, sensors, cameras, and more.
In the application, you can figure out the functionality of the robot cleaner itself. You can also configure in the application when and how often it should clean, and also in what mode it will work.
Not to mention the map that he creates during the cleaning process. On the map, you can draw forbidden lines and make additional settings.
Prohibited lines are a way to exclude certain areas from the cleaning process.
Thus, you can draw separate lines, for example, to block the cleaning of the room or directly to individual sections.
In addition to the 4 different power levels of Quiet, Balanced, Turbo and Fullspeed, you can also specify specific areas on the map in which mode to clean.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Navigation
Navigation in Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM is one of the main functions. Using laser navigation, the robot flawlessly and effortlessly moves around the apartment. Even several rooms do not cause him any problems, so he finds all the corners and leaves no room unattended.
If you do not want to clean the room later, you can simply block it using the lines.
In addition to laser navigation, the Mijia STYJ02YM also offers many other sensors that allow it to carefully and carefully navigate past obstacles. If the robot vacuum cleaner sees an obstacle, it slowly approaches it, but only slightly touches it. As for this behavior, in my opinion, this is one of the most sensitive models.
Also, you do not need to worry about falling from the stairs, as sensors are installed on the bottom.
With obstacles, stairs and abysses at Mijia STYJ02YM no problem! It confidently moves around everything that bothers them. No obstacles put them in front of insoluble tasks, so you can completely rely on a robot vacuum cleaner and can always leave the robot alone at home for cleaning.
Small thresholds or carpet edges with a slight elevation are delivered to them without any problems. Obstacles are 1.5 cm, but it can be easily overcome.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Cleaning
The most important thing for a robot vacuum cleaner is probably suction power. Again, Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM is one of the most powerful robots I’ve ever had.
If you have only hard floors, like mine, there is no need to switch the suction power to the highest level of cleaning. What you get is just making unnecessary noise and quickly draining the battery. By the way, the robot vacuum cleaner has a suction power of 2100 Pa at maximum power.
However, for carpets – it looks different. Here you must choose the highest cleaning mode so that even deep-rooted dust can be removed.
Also being one of the few wet cleaning robots, Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM does its job perfectly. On this move, a rag is attached, which is constantly moistened with a small amount of water.
Wet cleaning is optional and is “activated” by simply connecting a water tank.
In general, the quality of cleaning is one of the best that I tested from the latest generations of models of robotic vacuum cleaners.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Conclusion and Reviews
The new Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM vacuum cleaner robot model has shown its worthy side with good performance and suction power.
The black color gives an interesting shade that is unusual to see in the line of robotic vacuum cleaners. But as I said, dust is very visible on black, and fingerprints on a glossy surface.
Having wet cleaning will make your home cleaner from dust and allow you to breathe easier with clean air.
With a new processor and improved laser navigation, the robot does its job much more efficiently and the cleaning process takes less time.
Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM: Price and where to buy cheaper?
Now the price of the Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM robot vacuum cleaner is $529.99 and you can order and buy a device with a small discount.
Given its high performance and price, I can recommend a robot vacuum cleaner for purchase, a clean house will be provided without any effort for you.
