Better than the Braun series 5,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic Premium ES-RF41 Wet and Dry Four-Blade Men's Shaver (Personal Care)
I was hell bent on getting a Braun shaver as they keep telling us on TV adverts ect that their shavers are the best quality and cut the closest. Well I got a Braun series 5 shaver a few weeks ago before Amazon kindly and efficiently exchanging it for this one. The Braun I felt was very well made, looks quite nice and at the time was rather good value being on offer. However for my face especially, felt like it simply didn't have the power, having to keep going over the same spot again and again. Also the pivoting head on it once locked never stayed locked, quite a flimsy mechanism. So much for German engineering! Anyways Amazon managed to exchange that shaver for this. It is a lot better quality and value for money. It looks nicer as its in silver, the build quality is great on it, its nicer to hold because its chunkier and the head is a good size. The cut on it is as close to a "proper" shave that you will ever get on an electric shaver. It feels and sound very powerful and the cut is very close. It causes very little skin irritation but it says in the handbook that you can actually use this shaver with shaving foam, which is brilliant. The protective cap is large enough to fit the whole of the head and it comes with a neat carrying pouch. The display telling you how full the battery is is brilliant and the charge hold up for the claimed time. It's as easy as any other shaver to clean and no hassle at all. Its a very good buy. Im now switched for Panasonic shavers now. Sorry Braun.
