  • Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41 review
     December 01, 2016
    This is the first time to evaluate the Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41. This shaver is an entry-level shaver. I had not many expectations to this low-end shaver, but its actual shaving effect is very good. And more surprisingly, especially the beard on the chin can be shaved very cleanly. Although this low-end shaver has a good shaving performance, in other aspects it is not very good. For example, battery capacity is small; the face is a little numb after long time shaving; it is noisy; the shaver body uses a lot of hard plastic resulting in poor skid resistance, and others.
    Recently, I bought a new kind of Philips Shaver whose Model is Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41. Are there any reasons to make my buy Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41? As a matter of fact, I would like to prefer the shaver which is suitable for the public, the price is low and the shaving performance is good. Thus, I choose Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41 for testing. And we can see this shaver is good or not.

    This is the package

    After shaving beard with Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41, it feels not very comfortable. However, it can totally shave beards with easy. Three razor heads can move towards in different direction of your face. So the shaver can closely shave the beards enough and the beards will be cut very short.

    After finishing shaving beards, you can stand in a distance of 2 meters away from the mirror and find that it will not display black color on the face even though there are some many leftover beard roots.

    When I am shaving beards, perhaps the shaver's rotation speed is not very fact and I don't feel the fever of the razor mesh. But the face is a little bit itchy because maybe I don't use shaving foam and the face is too dry. There is a waterproof symbol on the back of the Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41. So it is not allowed to be cleaned with water. This razor is not waterproof.

    The three razor heads are respectively supported by three rotating pillars, and these three rotary supporting columns can be tilted in different direction. (I guess there is only one motor to drive these three rotating pillars. In fact, I'm right. When I rotate one of the three pillars, the other two will be followed rotating.)

    There is a triangle buckle in the middle of the razor head. You could mount an arrow on it, then you can counter clockwise rotation and you can get three shaver heads out from inside place.

    Since the shaver 6948XL-41 is not allowed to be cleaned with water, there is only one way to deeply cleaned up the shaver.

    Long beard trimmer is on the back of the shaver

    This is nothing special. Mostly long beard trimmer is designed on the back of all kinds of shavers. However, I think the groove design of long beard trimmer on this shaver is not good. It is too deep so that it is very difficult to clean the stubble inside the groove. And I can’t clean Philips norelco shaver 6948XL-41 with water. In this case, it will leave over some much stubble in the groove after a longtime use and cause bacteria growing insdie.

    The size of shaver is suitable and it is not heavy. The streamlined design of the body is good. And it is easy to be taken up.

    Unfortunately, the body is made from hard plastic except the switch is soft plastic.( show in the picture with red circle). And it is non-slip. And I pushed the razor on the table a few times and found it was very slippery, and the friction between the razor and the table was small, so don't put the razor on the uneven or smooth table.
