Better than I expected.
I got this as I saw it and thought I’d give it a try. I have used electric and disposable. This will now be my go to razor. I like it. I’ve always had rash and cut issues. No issue with this one blade wet or dry and the foam. I like the closeness. It works for me. I am a random shaver. 3 days growth or 5 days or one day. So it seems to work. It may not be for anyone. I’ve recommended it to a relative with similar issues.

This is a beard trimmer, not a shaver
If you want to use this as a shaver, its pointless - but if you need something to accurately trim beards it may be very good. The product is all about application. Even Philips have backed away from calling it a shaver.
Unfortunately I like a close shave, and GF bought this for me thinking it would make it easier to get rid of the "sandpaper". This device can only produce sandpaper, not at all a clean shave so I'm a little bemused at guys who suggest it gives a clean shave - can only guess that some guys have never used a razor.
It seems well m...

One of the best face shavers I’ve ever used
I never knew a a device like this could shave so close. I thought it would just trim but I was surprised.
I never cut myself or burn my skin like with other electric shavers.
I have a model where the length attachment is “all in one” using a spin dial to change lengths. I find this very difficult to use and would have purchased the seperate comb lengths if I new this.
And the replacement blades are a little expensive
Other than this the shaver is excellent
Good for quick clean shave
Good for quick clean shave, great value however the change of the blade is every 3 month not more than that. good packaging
battery last long
if you want to shave near zero this is the best in the market

Very handy little shaver
Very good for a quick shave, but don't expect it to be as close as one of Philip's rotary models (or a blade for that matter.)
A bit messy if you dry shave 3+ days of stubble, but wet shaving prevents much of the mess.
Sounds a bit noisy compared to my rotary Philips (Sensotouch 3D RQ1260) but it's not objectionable at all.
Happy to recommend this product.

I wanted a razor which cuts pretty close to the skin with little chance of cutting my face and this one fits the bill perfectly. I use it to trim around my beard. It is great for getting awesome edges. It takes me about 1 minute with Philips One Blade. No cuts. No foam or gel required. Can see where I'm shaving. I love it.
Not quite what I expected
I bought this after seeing overseas reviews. It promised a good shave without cuts, and most importantly for me, no shaving bumps. Apparently electric shavers cause bumps. This product cuts close to the skin, but not as close as a blade or electric shaver. Therefore there is less skin irritation. Replacement blades are a bit pricey too, I got a twin pack as well. Bought everything from my local Shaver Shop. The salesperson did explain that this won't produce a really close shave, and is intended to be used every other day, not daily. I'm trying...various methods, such as wet shaving, shaving with foam, dry shaving, and shaving with oil. It's not super close, I can still feel stubble after using this, but hopefully it will eliminate my numerous shaving bumps. The shaver was $79, the blades were $39 for a twin pack or $25 for one.
Questions & Answers
Best close shave electronic razor?
No. It's not designed for a close shave. I've tried, spent ages, tbe best I could achieve was an acceptable look, which became stubble after a few hours. In my experience electric razors cannot achiev...e a consistent, close shave, it's just marketing hype. I've gone old school recently, the new old safety razo. Less ingrown hairs, less irritation, far cheaper, blades are a few cents. It's just a bit scary, not the kind of task you want to be performing when you're not quite awake. The Philips One Blade is quick and convenient, great if you're in a hurry and don't want a perfect close shave.

Nope, not even close (excuse the pun). This is about the worst electric razor I have used for shaving. It's a beard trimmer, so don't be fooled by the marketing slogan - "trim, edge and shave". Does t...he first two.. I think. Closeness of shave is limited by the material thickness in the moving head, by definition, which works out to about a 1-2 day stubble (depending on the user).
