Advised Shaving Method
Rotary shavers require a rotating movement to get a close shave, contrary to a blade, where a rotating movement is dangerous and a linear movement is the standard. When shaving the neck, look down to catch all hairs (again, this is quite dangerous with a blade).
Patented Super Lift & Cut Technology
The Philips PowerTouch PT870 Shaver is equipped with dual blade system to give you ultra-close shave. The advantage of having two-blade system is that you enjoy a comfortable and soothing shave. The Philips PT870 Super Lift and Cut System is designed to give you the closer yet secure shave as first blade lifts and second blade cuts for a comfortable close shave. The advances double action Super Lift and Cut Action means that first the blade lifts the hair and second the blade shaves it off, so we get close the root of the hair. It means the shave is able to cut the longest hairs and then the shortest stubble even on the neck.
Philips PowerTouch shavers range gives ultimate high performance; the ultra-thin heads have slots in the blades to catch longer hairs and holes in the blades to shave short stubble. The stainless steel is made very to lie thin so the stubble in the skin can be easily reached.
SmartPivot - Contour Following Flex Action Shaver Head
The flexing heads in the shaving unit swivels with a full range of motion and gently follows the contours of your skin to catch every hair on every contour. This unique combination ensures optimum skin contact in curved areas, to catch even the most problematic neck hair. Experience the ease of a smooth shave, even in hard-to-reach areas.
For Philips Shavers, precision translates into the pursuit of creating a perfect shave, the shave that gives the ultimate in closeness and comfort. The PowerTouch is the latest in technological innovation from Philips Shavers, for example, combines cutting edge design and revolutionary new technology for a perfect shave.

I had a previous razor that was wired and it lasted for 40 plus years with diamond tipped blades, purchased when true quality manufacturing mattered. I doubt this one will last much more than 5 years... but who knows, I may be surprised and find it out lives me!!!
On arrival, the product seemed well packaged and the photography was very clear - you could see exactly what the product would be like.
Upon opening, the packaging inside did it's job but it wasn't anything outstanding. It was similar material to what is used in an egg box and I don't think it would protect the shaver that well. The instructions were incredibly poor and this is the main reason for only awarding four stars. They only had tiny pictures, with no explanation of what they were trying to show.
Charging time was as stated (1 hours charging time gave me 50 mins shaving time).
Very easy to use, giving a clean and comfortable shave. Whilst not as close as a manual razor, still perfectly acceptable. A downside is that I couldn't quite shave under my nose, even using the moustache/sideburn trimmer.
Once I had finished shaving, it was very easy to clean. You just flip up the top and run it under the tap. You can use the brush provided to get any of the little bits, but this wasn't necessary for me.
I was considering getting one of these for my birthday and if this had turned up I wouldn't have been disappointed.
Users of old Philishave models will have no trouble using this shaver - which is just as well as the instructions are rather brief. However it is a straightforward product to set up and it is fairly obvious how it works. Packaging is fairly basic but does the job OK and seems eco-friendly! Not quite as good a shave as my usual wet shave but not too bad for an electric shaver, and less fuss when out and about.
The PT870 would make a good replacement for your old Philishave and those looking to start electric shaving could do much worse than giving this Philips a try. Well made and still produced in the Netherlands rather than China, I give this shaver four stars.
Cleaning the bits of whisker out is very easy, as all you need to do is pull down on a catch and the top flips open. It's well placed away from the grip, so that there's no chance of pushing it by accident. There's a little brush included to help you with cleaning inside this compartment, and cleaning the mechanism itself when it's time to dismantle it and give it a quick service. This is something you should do with this type of shaver from time to time to keep it working well - and the instructions include easy to follow diagrams that show you how to do this.
Another feature is that when you remember that yesterday the shaver ran out of power and you said to yourself, "I'll charge it this evening" and then forgot to do so, you can plug it in for a few minutes and it'll give you enough to take it away to the bathroom for one shave.
It also comes with a power cord and plastic shaver-head cap.
I have now been using the shaver for three and a half months and have had no need to resort to wet shaving.
Taking the shaver from the box, first Impressions were; the shaver looked well made and was comfortable to hold, however when switching it on it seemed too quiet. I decided to give the shaver a full charge before using it.
The shaver has a rechargeable battery with an impressive claimed fifty minutes of continuous use, however in practice this is a very conservative claim. Battery life is excellent, I have charged the shaver only three times, including the initial charge. I charged it before a holiday trip even though it probably did not need it and it lasted way beyond the two weeks.
The shaver comes comes with a charger lead connected to a standard two pin shaver plug connector. It has a useful charge indicator which flashes to tell you it is charging and goes out when fully charged. The shaver is very quick to charge.
When fully charged the shaver was still quiet to use, it will not wake everyone up when you shave in the morning.
So far so good, but how does it shave?
Clearly no electric shaver can be as close as a multi-blade wet shave, however the floating head and three cutters gives a very good and comfortable, fast shave, even after three days growth.
It is also very easy to clean, just run it under the tap, it also comes with a cleaning brush which I have not needed to use. It has a built in trimmer which will be useful for some.
Fairly compact design makes it useful for slipping into the briefcase for late meetings or late starts.
The only 'downside' is no travel pouch (therefore only four stars), this is an oversight which in my opinion would improve the product.
