We love the flexibility of the three shaving speeds, allowing users to control if they prefer a faster shave or a milder shave. The heads rotate in an impressive eight directions for extra closeness and comfort. LED indicators alert users to charge level, shaving head level, and travel lock engage. This model also includes a facial cleansing brush attachment and handy self-cleaning mode.
The plastic head covers must be removed for cleaning and tend to fall off with prolonged usage.
This model includes Philips traditional three head alignment, so it provides a close and comfortable shave comparable to some higher priced models. The pop-up trimmer means not having to worry about losing an attachment. The one-touch open makes for easy cleaning.
No cordless option means this model is less mobile and cannot be used in the shower.
The flexible head works great, allowing users to get at tough-to-reach spots some other razors cannot, utilizing Philips signature three head blade system for good comfort. The razor outlasts most models with a full charge. Can be used dry or wet.
The trimmer attachment requires removing the razor head to be used, and is easier to misplace than the pop-up attachments on other models.
Gives a surprisingly close wet shave. The razor moves smoothly over skin due to the built-in glide guard, which prevents the rashes and bumps. Heads move in five directions.
The included cleaning system is bulky, requiring more bathroom counter space than expected.
This razor earns its distinction as one of Philips top-end models. The powerful motor gives a shave comparable to manual blades without irritating the skin. The beard styler is simple to attach, and can be adjusted to five different settings. Offers users a lot of flexibility in getting the look they want.
Some users report the shave heads on this model wear down more quickly than on some similar models.

Electric razors can save you time, money, and get you a closer shave than regular razors. Philips Norelco is one of the most popular electric razor options out there and it’s easy to see why. Philips Norelco shavers come with three heads that rotate in five to eight different directions to fit the exact shape of your face and neck and get you the closest shave possible. Several Norelco shaver models come with a wet & dry capability, allowing you to enjoy an easy dry shave or an effective wet shave after the shower, for example. The Norelco Shaver 9700, on the other hand, has a facial cleansing brush attachment for gentle clean. Prices range from the most basic models at $40 to the highest-end models at $300.
