From the Manufacturer
Enjoy a refreshing shave without damaging your skin.
What makes a top-class razor?
Designed to naturally follow your facial hair, Philips shavers always use a rotary system with independently rotating shaving heads. Moving the shaver in a circular motion helps you to capture every hair, even in hard to reach places, giving you optimal shaving results.
Philips Aquatouch AT899, Wet and Dry Men's Electric Shaver
Enjoy a close and comfortable shave, with the versatility of being able to choose whether to shave wet or dry with one device.
Incorporating Philips Aquatec seal, the unit is completely waterproof so it can be used in the shower with gel or mousse for enhanced skin comfort. Or if you prefer, you can use the shaver dry, with the benefit of being able to wash the head easily using the QuickRinse system. The triple shaving heads gently flex to follow the contours of your face giving a smooth close shave, with no nicks, grazes or razor burn.
Protect against skin damage
Rounded low-friction protection heads adjust to the curves of your face to prevent against skin damage.
No nicks or cuts

Use wet or dry
AquaTouch features an inbuilt seal, AquaTec, which means that the shaver is 100 per cent waterproof and optimised for use with shaving gel or foam, enhancing skin comfort and minimising skin irritation.
Easy to maintain
The QuickRinse system makes it easy to keep your shaver clean - simply rinse under the tap or in the shower after use. It also includes a cleaning brush to remove small dust particles and hair.

I had to keep the Shaver on charge for a good few hours before using it and I was sceptical that it could ever give me a closer shave than a wet shave could. I was wrong. The 3 heads on the shaver gives you an extremely close shave and I was impressed at just how smooth it was. You can also wet shave with the shaver and I tried this also, but I reverted back to using it dry. It probably took my skin about a week to adapt to the dry electric shaves but it is totally worth it. No more expensive razor heads and shaving foam, just a straight forward recharge and you are good to go for around 5 or 6 shaves, the only slight downside is that you tend to need more shaves per week.
My beard is extremely think so I probably get less shaves than most men do after the battery has been recharged and I would estimate that a guy with less beard thickness would probably get 7 or 8 shaves out of the battery per recharge. But I certainly couldn't go back to wet shaving now. I am totally converted to the electric shaver and this is the highest praise I could possibly give this device.
Putting this trade off in features aside, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the core function of this shaver. In fact, I would go as far as to say that it offers a much smoother shave than some of the more expensive models I've used in the past, although this may be due in part to the fact that this has new blades and I can't fully remember the performance of the others when new!
There is a key flaw in this product however and that is in relation to the charging time. One of the first things which you are warned not to do is to use the shaver while plugged in, however, not everyone has eight hours to wait (charging time) before having a shave. Fair enough, you can charge it overnight, however there also does not appear to be a low battery warning light so one can never be sure when it actually needs a charge. A minor plus side is that a single charge seems to last a reasonably long time and I have found that I can easily get a month's use out of it when used every day (or sometimes every other day).
On the face of it all sounds positive so far but there are a number of downsides to the Philips AT899/16. Firstly, the charging time is 8 hours to give you 45 minutes of shaving time - most rechargeable appliances now work for as long as they take to charge or even longer - this aspect of performance is not in line with contemporary standards/expectations. In addition, the battery charge remaining isn't clearly indicated - given the length of time charging takes you need to plan for it so a clear indication of an impending depleted battery is essential. Also, there's no built in trimmer for sideburns etc. - in the past few shavers have been made without this feature and its absence takes cost cutting to a new extreme. The same also applies to absence of a case - yes, a flimsy plastic cover is supplied for the cutters but no case, again, this is a new low.
I had a look round at other brands of shaver in this price range and whilst it is hard to know how well they actually shave, most of them do incorporate a trimmer and battery indicator plus significantly shorter charging time. In summary, the shaving performance of this unit is good but it is simply too austere even allowing for its price and market position.
