What are the main differences between Xiaomi Dreame V11 and Dyson V11 Absolute Extra?

The wireless vacuum cleaner market had been dissected into two sectors. The majority of Chinese manufacturers comprised the first one with products theoretically in the same league as that of the British companies. However, when it came to practical usage, they somehow fell short of the latter. On the other hand, we had Dyson providing efficient solutions aided with cutting-edge technology and ace designs. 

Through this article, we intend to find out the differences between the Dyson V11 and the Xiaomi Dreame V11 by reviewing and comparing them briefly. 

Features of Xiaomi

Following the footsteps of the ancient Chinese giants, the Xiaomi Dreame V11 also packs in lots of accessories allowing fantastic versatility of use. Its cordless electric broom, to name one of them, is very handy and adds to the product’s convenience. This cyclonic vacuum cleaner is your all-purpose item that will be useful in almost every cleaning scenario. 

On the other hand, Dyson V11 is an intelligent and powerful vacuum equipped with senses. It helps in optimum cleaning. Besides, it’s cord-free vacuum powered with a digital motor V11 for powerful suction. Also, it has an LCD screen to check run time and performance.

Design and build

Let us start with the build quality and design of both models. At first glance, one will find the Xiaomi Dreame V11 a very premium product. Polycarbonate functions as the dominant material in the build. The structure comes in gray, barring the tube used for cleaning and parts of the rear. Also, there’s an OLED color display that provides all the main function info such as battery, suction, and language. Moreover, the premium display shows how the Dreame is going for a global reach for their products. 

The Dyson V11 comes very close with its chic and modern design. The unit’s head is typical in its Dyson design with its unique British-like optical feature that is featuring for decades. The built is quite sturdy and heavy as well owing to its main component weighing around 3 kgs. This means the cleaner will have an impact on your upper arm if you use it for more than 10 minutes. This is where Dyson might disappoint a few of its consumers. The single parts can provide a bit of hassle when putting together. Also, plastic distortions can prove to be disturbing and act negatively on the consumer base. 


The wattages of both models vary considerably. At the same time, the Dream V11 rates 140W air watts and the Dyson V11 rates around 185W air watts.

Dust storage and battery life

Both vacuum cleaners run about 60 – 70 minutes at their optimum setting. In their maximum position, though, the Xiaomi Dreame perform slightly better than the Dyson V11. It also charges faster than the Dyson. So, the Dream takes the cake in terms of battery life and charging.

One annoying aspect about vacuum cleaners is emptying the dust can. It nags you more if you have to do it halfway through the suction process. The Dyson V11 flaunts a large enough reservoir for your dust that guarantees you won’t have to empty it halfway. The Dream also contains a large reservoir but not as large as the Dyson’s. 

However, both are large enough to go through a complete cleaning session of your average room. 

The additional

When it comes to gadget value, Xiaomi is the clear winner. It comes with an app that provides you insight into the filter condition. It also flaunts an LED indicator that turns on when you vacuum under the bed. 

The Dyson features an LED display that is the most premium addition. 


Even if they do the same tasks, the Xiaomi Dreame V11 and the Dyson V11 are different beasts on the floor. Their differences are quite subtle yet impactful when used. We recommend you trial run them both and go with what suits your requirement the best.
