360 P7: cheap robot vacuum with camera navigation and wet cleaning

360 P7 Robot Vacuum Reviews

Hey guys, welcome to Robotobzor! Today, we’ll review a low budget robot-vacuum 360 Botslab P7. Its price does not exceed $200. For the price, the vacuum has a camera for navigation, controls through the app and remote, as well as vacuuming and mopping functions. On the outside it looks good, but today we’ll thoroughly look into and test 360 P7, after which I’ll tell you, if this is your next vacuum! I’ll also compare it to the closest vacuums by camera, being Mijia and Dreame. Lets go!


The vacuum came in this box:

It includes:

  1. A charging base.
  2. A power adapter with different plugs.
  3. Conjoined container for water and trash, and the robot already has a separate dust tank..
  4. Documents.
  5. Remote with a charger.
  6. A tool for cleaning the vacuum.

It’s pretty compact, as there’s no extras.


Now let’s look at how the 360 P7 vacuum works. It’s round and black. The top is glossed, very shiny. It stands 76 mm (2.9 in.) from the floor. The camera handles the navigation, next to which are 3 buttons and a wifi connection indicator.

The dust tank can be taken out from the back. It holds as much as 680 ml of dry dirt, which is huge! There are three filters in the system: mesh, foam and HEPA filter, which is cool!! The HEPA can’t be washed with water, but the container can.

Instead of a trash container, you can put in a conjoined water and trash container. The tank holds up to 350 ml (11.8 Oz.) of water, which is fed to the wipe with a pump. Meanwhile, there is also a small compartment for trash, which also has a triple filtration system. It’s important to note that the 360 P7 can vacuum and wipe the floor at the same time. That’s a plus!

There are 3 sensors on the bottom to stop it from falling. There are two side brushes, which are three-beamed, and easy to take off. The central brush isn’t fluid, only the frame with the squeegee moves.The central brush has bristles. You can only take off the side cap.

Overall, the design and build of 360 P7 is budgeted, as the price suggests.

Technical characteristics

The robot’s main characteristics:

  • Battery Li-Ion 2600 mA*h.
  • Suction power 2700 Pa.
  • Battery life 120 mins.
  • Cleaning area 90 sq.m (295 ft.).
  • Trash container 680 ml (23 Oz.).
  • Water tank 350 ml (11.8 Oz.).
  • Obstacle size: 20 mm (.78 In.).
  • Size: 320*76 mm (12.5×2.9 In.).
  • Weight: 3 kg (6.6 lbs.).

The characteristics are pretty standard. I only have a comment about the weak battery. Taking into account the presence of a camera for navigation, at least 3200 mA*h, would’ve been better. At least the robot can automatically resume cleaning after charging at the base. On the brighter side, I’d again like to point out how short it is, and how large the dirt container is!


Speaking of functions, the vacuum is controlled through the Botslab app, not the 360robot app.

Main functions:

  • Saves one map.
  • Automatically zones space into rooms.
  • You can choose zones and rooms that need cleaning.
  • Virtual walls and no-go zones.
  • Suction power regulation.
  • water regulation.
  • Cleaning log.
  • Cleaning schedule (by days of week).
  • Keeps cleaning after charging.
  • Supports voice assistants.

The functions are quite standard, but there are certain problems. For example, when editing room boundaries, you can only combine several rooms into one, which are automatically detected by the robot. You can’t move the room boundary or divide one room into several zones, which is pretty inconvenient. Also, you can’t select the rooms you want when setting up a cleaning schedule. I hope that in the later updates, they fix this and make it more user friendly.

In addition, you can control the robot vacuum cleaner using the remote control:

Quick video review with all tests:

Finally, let’s test. First of all, let’s test the navigation in a room with obstacles. First, the robot vacuum cleaned the area in a snake-like pattern, then along the edge. Separately, it did not sweep around the chair legs and the box, which is common for most robots with a camera. On one pass through the drying rack’s legs, the robot got stuck and went into error. After resuming, it berserk and the robot cleaned again, without taking into account that it already passed the area. So the test failed, but let’s move on.

As for the rest of the house, the 360 P7 cleans the entire area zone by zone, first in a snake-like pattern, then around the edge. Considering that it doesn’t sweep separately around objects, but only turns around in the opposite direction after touching them, it leaves small areas untidy, which isn’t good. Besides, the robot-vacuum cleaner strangely counts the covered area as twice the real size. Well, one more thing – 360 P7 takes a long time to position itself after leaving the base. For example, choose a room where the robot vacuum cleaner should go to clean. It starts to drive around a small square, trying to find where it should be. You can see this later when you run the robot on test stands. And so if there is a small rearrangement of furniture, such as moving a chair, I bet that the robot won’t be able to locate and will start to build a new map. Overall, I have some complaints about the navigation. They’re not critical, but nevertheless, compared with the same budget lidar models, the robot is much slower and leaves small areas with dirt.

Suction power

On the other hand, they slightly increased the suction power. The robot sucked dirt out of a 4 mm (.15 In.) deep hole. This is good!

It did good picking up different dirt off the floor. It even managed better than other round models to sweep out the trash in the corners. This is another advantage! The central brush has some hair and fur on it, but it has collected most of the dirt and dust. Test passed with flying colors!


Carpet cleaning

The carpets were well cleaned by this vacuum, which is due to the increased suction power and the addition of a turbo brush. For day to day use, this robot is awesome!

It can scrub basic dirt. It’s true that it leaves streaks. This is because the cloth is thin and absorbs dirt poorly. Well, and the area along the baseboard isn’t washed, which is common with other vacuums I’ve reviewed. Overall, the scrubbing quality is slightly above average.


Note, that 360 P7 can mop and vacuum simultaneously. And the wipe is maximally wet and leaves a visible wet trace on the floor. The mopping is better if we compare it with camera navigating vacuums from Draeme and Mijia.

As for mopping with carpets, 360 P7 doesn’t have a carpet detection sensor, so it can’t recognise them and go around them. To save your carpets, you can put no-go zones. Unfortunately, there aren’t any separate zones just for mopping.

Passage of obstacles

The vacuum went over 2 cm (.78 In.) obstacles with ease. So it’s definitely good off-road!

Dark spaces

Here’s some more good news, it’s not afraid of dark spaces. For many, this is an important must-have!

Noise level

Finally, let’s measure the volume of the vacuum in different modes. At the smallest power it’s within 58-60 dB. In auto mode, it goes up to 62-64 dB, and at max power, it peaks at 71,5 dB. It’s very loud, even taking into account the increased power. It is still too loud at max power.

The 360 Botslab P7 robot vacuum was thoroughly reviewed and tested. Our algorithm gave it 99 points. Not bad, for a vacuum with a camera for navigation. But, for example, the nearest competitor Dreame F9 managed to get 108 points, and Yeedi 2 Hybrid 107 points. Although, Xiaomi Mijia 2C is still slightly inferior to this model and scored 97 points.

Overall rating of robotic vacuum cleaners that have passed the Robotobzor test: https://robotobzor.com/ratings/general-rating-of-robot-vacuum-cleaners.html.

Now, I’ll share my opinion. I liked the following:

  1. Good vacuuming.
  2. Simultaneously vacuums and mops.
  3. Gets dirt from corners better than other round vacuums.
  4. Can clean behind curtains.
  5. Higher suction power.
  6. Controlled through app and remote.
  7. You can choose the zones and rooms that need cleaning.
  8. Supports virtual walls and no-go zones.
  9. Good off-road.
  10. Large dirt bin.
  11. Small.
  12. Isn’t scared of dark spaces.

As for what could be better, here’s what I saw during the tests:

  1. Weak battery.
  2. Navigation problems(I.e, takes a long time to position itself).
  3. Leaves marks while mopping.
  4. Loud.
  5. You can’t choose rooms when setting up a schedule.
  6. You can’t change the room size.

All in all, considering the pros and cons, it’s hard to say whether this is a good robot for its money or not. I personally would choose Dreame F9 if I was to set up an inexpensive robot-vacuum with a camera for navigation, or I would pay a hundred dollars more for the 360 S8 which already has a lidar, which is much better at orienting itself and has better functions. But, if the problems aren’t that bad to you, go ahead and get it.

On this note, I’d like to end the review. If you still have questions, make sure t ask them in the comments and I’ll get to them as soon as possible. Have fun shopping, bye!
