I am happy with it so far.
For some reason, cheaper models have very slow motors, takes ages to shave with them. This model runs a bit faster and gives a reasonable shave (only used it three times so far, so it might improve as my skin adjusts to it) none of them run as fast as my 1980`s 555 which gives a good close shave and still has the original blades.
Beard trimmer jammed
Had this for only a few months but the beard trimmer is now jammed internally with hair. I only use it once every few days and I wash it after every use but because of how poorly designed the trimmer is hair falls inside the attachment and can't be washed out. The trimmer attachment can't be disassembled or opened like the shaver attachment so it can't be cleaned thoroughly. Was bought this for Christmas to replace a 10+ year old Braun that never missed a beat. Waste of money, already using the Braun again.
Not a perfect Shave.. Experienced first time and regret.
First time I tried to switch from traditional Razor to Philip AquaTouch wet and dry (S5070/04).. my experience was horrible.. it doesn't give clean shave.. Precisin trimmer even doesn't work at lot.. Feel cheated after buying this.
I have been a user of Phillips shavers since I started shaving over 20 years ago,Using a blade only on special occasions to get that really close shave.l I have noticed a slight decline in build quality over the years.
My wife purchased this model as a Christmas present. The Idea of a portable shaver that can be used in the shower looked great. The shaver looks fantastic but feels like a cheap toy.
It comes with Phyllip's famous cutting system but performs poorly, possibly due to the slow flimsy motor. You go over your face over and over but can not achieve a half decent cut. In the shower with the foam the motor really struggles and pointless, I grabbed a cheap blade that gave a better cut in a fraction of the time. It's only benefit of aqua is you can clean it under water instead of the traditional brush out.
I have currently reverted back to my older plug in model that even with dull blades cuts quicker and better. I don't think I will be buying another one. The more expensive models may be better but this model is pointless pardon the pun.
This shaver is hopeless. It was purchased by family to help me shave when left with the use of one arm after an operation. I cannot get an anywhere decent shave.The ad claims 40 minutes of shaving on one charge. (One needs this and more)! I went to the trouble of travelling to the shop to ask advice as to whether I was using it correctly. The offhanded response from the manager, was that I needed to spend more money and buy a more expensive shaver. I would not recommend this product or the Shaver Shop, Pacific Fair.
