In today’s article, I will compare two, at first sight, almost identical air purifiers. I will talk about the Levoit Core 200S and the Xiaomi 4 Compact. Cylindrical shapes characterize them both; they have controls on the top and filters located on the bottom.
The build quality is great on both devices. The Levoit is available in several colors, while the Xiaomi is available only in white. Both are small and adorable devices that, I believe, will fit into almost any ambiance.
As for the filtration technology, these two air purifiers use a three-stage filtration technology consisting of a pre-filter, a True HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter. And guess what? They produced almost identical results in performance tests.
Then, you are probably wondering why I’m comparing these two if everything related to them is almost identical. Actually, it’s not! The Xiaomi 4 Compact has an air quality sensor, air quality indicator, auto mode, and many other features that aren’t built-in in the Levoit Core 200S.
That’s what makes this comparison much more enjoyable. So, please keep reading and find out which one performed better, which is quieter, which is more affordable for maintenance, and which is a better buying option overall.

Which One Does It Better?
I must admit that this was one such comparison in which it was difficult to declare a winner. But, as the purpose of this article is to help potential buyers decide with which one to go, I made a (hard) decision.
In my opinion, the Xiaomi 4 Compact is a better buying option than the Levoit Core 200S. It made slightly better results in performance tests, uses less power, is quieter at work, and has many more advanced features. Additionally, it covers larger rooms than the Levoit. All these are reasons I would go with the Xiaomi.
Don’t get me wrong; you won’t regret it even though you choose the Levoit, which is a fantastic air purifier as well.
