Coredy r500 vs. r650: Face to Face Comparison

Design, Size, & Dimensions

Coredy r500

Coredy r500
The Coredy r500 measures 12.6 inches wide and 2.7 inches tall. This unit offers a circular aesthetic as with many robot vacuums, but it is a tad smaller with regards to the height.

As you can see, it has a yellow accent in addition to the all-white company logo. The forefront of the robot also shows the Power and Home buttons.

While there isn’t a lot going on with its overall design, it has a slim and capable build nonetheless.

Coredy r650

Coredy r650
The diameter and weight of this model are similar to the Coredy r500. But the mesmerizing blue lines of the Coredy r650 is a breath of fresh air to the usual all-black color scheme of robot vacuums.

The forefront of this robovac contains only the Power button, which lights up to make the bot locatable in dark areas.


Navigation & Mapping

Coredy r500

Navigation Coredy R500
The Coredy r500 doesn’t boast of simultaneous localization and digital mapping capabilities.

Instead, it relies on 12 infrared sensors in addition to the pressure-sensitive bumpers at the front half portion of the unit. If the robovac runs against a wall or a large object, it moves away from the obstacle and changes its direction.

This robot can navigate your home without falling off ledges, too.

Coredy r650

Navigation Coredy R650
We also like how diligently the Coredy r650 hunts dirt and debris despite the lack of a camera and cutting-edge navigation software.

This model only uses standard sensors similar to the r500. When the robovac hits something, its bumper retracts and activates the mechanical sensors.

Thus, the robot tells itself that it has encountered an obstacle. Then the robovac backs off, rotates, and moves forward to a clear path. This model may not be the most intuitive cleaner, but it is smart enough to avoid deadly falls. Nor does it scratch delicate furniture.


Brushes

Coredy r500

Coredy-R500 Unique V-shaped rubber roller brush
The Coredy r500 uses a unique V-shaped rubberized roller brush with patented tangle-free technology. The brush roll is suitable for multi-surfaces; hence, this robovac can tidy up any room.

Moreover, four 27-degree spinning brushes come with the package. You can use two of them right away, while you hide the rest for future use.

Coredy r650

Coredy-R650 brush
For the most part, the Coredy r650 is a lot like the r500.

This robot vacuum uses the same brush roll for removing embedded particles from various surfaces.

Likewise, it includes two pairs of 27-degree spinning side brushes for cleaning along corners and wall edges.


Dirt Detection

Coredy r500

Dirt Detection Coredy-R500
The Coredy r500 has five cleaning options, which include the Spot Cleaning Mode.

The Spot Cleaning Mode directs the robot to target concentrated areas of dirt and make repetitive passes until there is no residue.

Coredy r650

Coredy-R650 CLEAING MODE
The Coredy r650 also offers a Spot Cleaning Mode, which is apparently the generic term for Roomba’s expensive Dirt Detect™ technology.


Filtration System

Coredy r500

Coredy-R500 HIGH EFFICIENCY AIR FILTER
The Coredy r500 uses a washable HEPA-filter, which you need to replace periodically.

Nevertheless, you won’t have to worry about replacements anytime soon, as the package includes an extra HEPA filter.

Coredy r650

Coredy-R650 Washable HEPA Filter
According to the manufacturer, the Coredy r650 features an upgraded HEPA filter combined with a sponge filter to reduce the amount of allergens released back into the air.


Connectivity

Coredy r500

Coredy R500 Connectivity
You won’t get smartphone functionality with the Coredy r500. Instead, you will be using a remote control to access the robovac’s features and settings.

This model belongs to the cheaper side of the spectrum, and yet it affords you a mopping system. Long story short, there shouldn’t be room for complaints here.

Coredy r650

Coredy R650 Connectivity
You will also rely on the remote control to operate the Coredy r650. The remote control makes the robot user-friendly, especially for the old folks and quasi-technophobes.

You only need to press a button to manipulate movement, set a schedule, pick a cleaning mode, etc.


Power Suction

Coredy r500

Coredy R500 power
The Coredy r500 has a suction power of 1 400 Pa.

While the suction power is the same as older Coredy models, its elaborate cleaning system makes it a more efficient housekeeping robot.

Coredy r650

Coredy R650 power
The difference between the Coredy r500 vs. 650 is suction power, as the latter gives you 1 600 Pa.

The increase makes a significant difference in carpets and rugs.


Run Time

You want a robot vacuum that is always charged and ready to clean.

Coredy r500

The Coredy r500 equips a 2600 mAh lithium-ion battery that offers 110 minutes of run-time per charge.

The robot automatically returns to its charging base when it is done cleaning or when it is low in juice.

Coredy r650

The Coredy r650 equips the same battery as the r500, but its total runtime can last up to 120 minutes.

When the robot is running out of juice, it also heads back to its station to charge.


Virtual Barriers

If you have an open floor layout, you will need to upgrade to the Coredy r650 to form vacuuming zones.

Otherwise, you won’t be able to stop your robot from passing through an open doorway — unless, of course, you intervene.

Coredy r650

Coredy R650 Virtual Barriers
The Coredy r650, on the other hand, has the Out of Bounds feature.

Not only can you contain your robot in a particular room, but you also prevent it from entering dangerous areas, such as the fireplace.


Noise

Coredy r500

Coredy R 500 Noise
At 58 decibels, the Coredy r500 provides a quieter clean experience when your kids or pets are sleeping.

Coredy r650

Coredy R 650 Noise
The Coredy r650 has a higher decibel rating than r650. This robot vacuum makes a low-pitched rumble at 65 decibels.

Coredy r500 vs. r650: Cleaning Tests

We performed quick tests using five types of debris placed on three different surfaces.

We gave the Coredy r500 and r650 a maximum of 10 minutes to complete the task at hand.

  • 3 ounces of cat litter
  • 3 ounces of cornflakes
  • 3 ounces of rice
  • 3 ounces of granulated/white sugar
  • 3 ounces of synthetic hair

Hardwood Floors

Coredy r500

The Coredy r500 performed impressively on hardwood floors.

The robovac left our testing lane spotless, as it cleaned all five types of debris.

Our only gripe is that the spinning brush tends to toss some of the grains, but it did pick those up later on.

Coredy r650

As expected, the Coredy r650 does a great job of picking up all five types of debris, as well.


Low Pile Carpet

Coredy r500

The Coredy r500 had no trouble cleaning rice, cornflakes, hair, and cat litter.

However, the sugar gave the robovac a little problem.

This model was only able to clean roughly 50% of the sugar we scattered on the low pile carpet, even on Max mode.

Coredy r650

Since the Coredy r650 sports a more powerful Max suction power, it had no difficulty cleaning rice, cornflakes, hair, kitty litter, and sugar in low pile carpets.


High Pile Carpet

Coredy r500

The Coredy r500 scored the lowest in the high pile carpet test.

While rice, cornflakes, and hair were no match for this model, it struggled cleaning kitty litter and sugar buried deep into the carpet.

In the end, it only cleaned 80 – 85 % of the kitty litter and 15 – 20% of the sugar.

Coredy r650

The Coredy r650 features Boost-Intellect Technology, which is one of the main factors for its improved performance in carpets and rugs.

While this robovac may not be able to keep up with high-end models, its motor is more than enough to get the maximum amount of sugar possible.

It also picks up pet hair too well, but if you have many pets, you might need to empty its canister more than once per cleaning.


Conclusion

If you compare the Coredy r500 vs. r650, you won’t notice much in differences.

There are only four things that set the two robovacs apart: aesthetics, wet/dry mopping, boundary strips, and suction power.

Both models are designed to clean up after our kitties and pooches better than most robovacs in the same class.

The Coredy r500 and r650 offer several nifty features, such as a low noise output, a large dustbin, a long battery life, and an automatic recharge.

Also, did I mention each cleaner is armed with sturdy wheels perfect for climbing dividers and pass through cords?

The mopping feature of the r500 may not replace a heavy-duty mop, but it does help keep gunk at bay and add a subtle sheen to bare floors.

The Coredy r650, on the other hand, has been receiving good remarks for competing with the big boys in terms of carpet cleaning. Then again, these models have some of the problems commonly associated with robovacs in the lower end of the pricing spectrum. Your robot may need your help from time to time when it navigates difficult areas.

Regardless, the disadvantages aren’t really dealbreakers, especially for households with only one or two pets.

You can rest assured the Coredy r50 and r650 will provide an excellent job cleaning your home while keeping you within your budget.

If you want to enjoy fancy features, you can remedy this problem by paying more for a high-tier product.
