Design & Performance
Since the release of this shaving beast, no shaver from its own company can be called better than this one.
This is because other electric shavers from Philips feel like something is missing while you hold them in your hand. Although performance wise they are always at the top. But this electric shaver has something even more. Starting at the design and ending the performance, everything is amazing. No man could deny the power this best electric razor has for men.
Alright now, its a whole metal body. Up on the top it is brushed aluminum which feels rather luxurious. You can bet it can be the next best gadget in your life. Besides the metal body, it is very easy to use. This is because of the 8 direction head movement, which literally reaches any place of your face.
Jut below the head is a rounded-corner square button which feels premium too. Below this button, you get another button where you can select from three different settings which are slow, medium and fast. And finally, below this lies the smart LED where you can see the charge percentage alongside the speed indication. A surprising thing here is that the display works with sensors, it turns on when you lift the shaver up.
As mentioned earlier, Norelco Prestige S9000 is one of the closest shavers you will get. This is made possible due to the blades on the top which are extra sharp because of Nano Technology. They are sharply cut in a way which makes possible cutting your beard closer then any other shaver can do.
But sharp blades need to be protected in a way so your face is safe too. This has been made possible by introducing very comfortable rings on top of the blades, they make your shave safe, smooth and very quick. You don’t feel a thing and your facial hair is cut off at the very roots. And it works with wet shaving as well, although you won’t be needing it because of its default smoothness.
Here is the best thing about this best electric shaver, it can even shave a dense beard of 7 days. This is something you do not get in ordinary shavers. A dense beard of 7 days is rough and hard, but this beast easily manages to cut it off. Besides, it senses your beard density 15 times in a second and adjusts itself according to that. This feature makes sure a nice smooth shaving experience.
You also get a separate trimmer head, which you can replace wit the main shaver anytime and do the detailing after you have shaved your beard.
Now the battery life here is not exceptional but lies in the good range. It takes around an hour to fully charge the shaver and then works for somewhere between 50 to 60 minutes, depending on the speed you have selected.
But there is something unique about the charging here. First is the quick charge feature, which enables you to get a quick shave by getting it charged for 5 minutes only. And second is wireless charging which you can find in other variants of the same shaver which are SP9860/86 and SP9860/13. These models are sold at very high price compared to ordinary charging models. And this feature seems just to be a luxury addition rather something useful.
Accessories & Assembly
The fully loaded model of Prestige S9000 comes with a travel case which is very premium, a trimming head, power cord, a charging pad for wireless charging and finally a cleansing brush for your face before you start shaving.
But the base model reviewed here comes with a travel case, trimmer head and power cord only. The charging pad and cleaning brush is not included here. Other then these two things everything else is alike.
