I'm going to buy a scooter and I'm thinking of this M356, because of its price and features are good for.
Only 1 question is how good is the suspension, I notices while riding Voi and Tier (Finland, Helsinki) that those have bad ones, but Hoop has good, but I don't know what model it is (voi & tier uses ninebot as far as I know).

M365 only has suspension of its pneumatic tyres.
I keep mine pumped around 3.5 to 4 bar, what rides ok. Despite littered with sharp crap to puncture (whats taken care of using Tyre Slime), my streets are smooth pretty good.

Ok, I'm just thinking about when I go up to pavement after a crosswalk etc, there seems to be pretty many pretty up ones where I ride usually.
If you practice a little, you can jump the scooter over small bumps and sidewalk ledges while in motion. I used to skateboard 3+ decades ago and finding some of my skillz coming back to me.

As said above the the m365, nor the m365 pro have any built-in suspension system. They have pneumatic tires which are in comparison to solid rubber very forgiving against terrain. However, I always switch to honeycomb when I get a flat. The new xiaomi m365 pro (I just tested it to review) is really good. There are things that I wish they've done better and actually fixed with the new model. But overall the scooter is great and the riding experience is well I've had my first m365 for 2+ years now and if I haven't broken it in half yet you will never be able to.

haha, isn't it fantastic! I myself as an old skater(still do skate about once or twice per year when I go back to Sweden where I have my board). But also still not any good at it.
I also find my skills at least being helpful in managing the scooter. I would never be able to run a scooter in the city if I couldn't jump up and down the curbs. Just riding gets boring quickly and you need ways to get some adrenaline into the game. Jumping things is a great way of doing so. To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.
