Philips introduces the PowerTouch - a fast way through your morning routine
Philips understands that while men want to look presentable, they want to spend as little time getting ready in the bathroom when they could be getting on with the rest of their day. With this in mind, Philips has created PowerTouch--its quickest, most convenient and skin friendly shave for the fast way through the morning's shaving routine. Philips PowerTouch PT715 is a corded shaver that gives a close, comfortable and convenient shave.
Super Lift & Cut technology
Philips PowerTouch PT715 shaver is equipped with dual-blade system to give you an ultra-close shave so that you can enjoy a comfortable and smooth results. The Philips PT715 Super Lift & Cut system is designed to give you the closer yet secure shave, as the first blade lifts and second blade cuts for a comfortable close shave.
Philips PowerTouch shavers range gives ultimate high performance, the ultra-thin heads have slots in the blades to catch longer hair and holes in the blades to shave short stubble. The stainless steel is made very thin so the stubble in the skin can be easily reached. The double-action Super Lift & Cut action means that the first blade lifts the hair and the second blade shaves it off, so we get close to the root of the hair. It means the shaver is able to cut the longest hair and then the shortest stubble, even on the neck.
Contour-following shaver head
The flexing heads in the shaving unit swivel with a full range of motion. This combination ensures optimum skin contact in curved areas, to catch even the most problematic neck hair.
Washable shaver head
The Philips PT715 comes with a washable shaver head, so it is very easy to keep it clean and hygienic, as you can simply rinse this waterproof shaver under tap. It also includes a cleaning brush to remove even the smallest dust particles and hair. Your Philips PowerTouch shavers come with corrosion free heads to give it a brand-new look even after many uses. Keep your shaver in optimal shape by rinsing it under hot water after every use.
Philips PT715 is a mains-operated electric shaver and comes with bathroom-compatible, two-pin adapter. So you can enjoy the ultimate shaving experience as long as you want.
Replacement shaving head
Philips offers a range of replacement shaver heads for its PowerTouch shaver range. All Philips shavers come with one shaver head that can be replaced after every two years for optimal shaving results. To get the most out of your shaver, you should clean the shaving head after every use.

I bought the Powertouch since it had the least number of critics, hoping for the best.
My first thoughts when I powered it up was that it was going too slow compared to my old Philips, and that it would not do the job.
It has proved exactly the opposite. It does a great job, smoothly and without any afterburn, and is almost as good as a wet shave, and better than my old Philips which served me so well.
The one major flaw that he found with this product is that it comes with no sideburn trimmer. This is less than ideal, but it is marketed as a 'no extras' product, so it is not totally surprising.
Despite this one gripe, the product has performed very well in all other respects. It is a corded shaver, which is important to note, but this can be an advantage for those who habitually shave in one place, near a plug socket. With battery operated shavers you inevitably reach a point where you seem to be continually charging it, due to the rechargeable battery starting to degrade.
So, in summary, it is good quality product, with no extra features, that is capable of giving a good close shave.
The Powertouch performs well giving a close shave with its flexible head and without irritating the skin. It's easy to clean but is a no-fills shaver. Recommended.
I can find no problem with it. No, it's not rechargeable - I don't need it to be. No, it doesn't have a trimmer - I never used the trimmer anyway. The cord isn't elasticated but it's more than long enough, and the shave is as good as any razor I've used. So oi'll give it foive.
The paperwork said I could register my purchase online. I invariably encounter problems when doing this, but I thought I'd give it a go. And the problem soon materialised. The invoice gave the model number PT715/17, but the two choices I was given to select on the website were PT715/15 and PT715/16. I decided to click on 'Contact us' and ask for advice on how to proceed. I got an email saying 'thanks for contacting Philips Australia' and giving me an address in Guildford Surrey to write to.
This device has its basic physical design roots going back over 15 years ago. So most of any errors in its initial design and so on have been eradicated over this long time in production. The rotary blades are in a set of three, and are covered by a 2 year guarantee.
I have replaced my previous models blades around 4 or 5 times over 15 years. You tend not to notice that over time, it takes longer and longer to get a smooth shave. And with this the shave you do get becomes less clean. Over this time, its noticeable that the price of the replacement shaver blades have crept up to become a large fraction of a brand new shaver body. So may as well buy a new body and blades together.
* Cable and converter plug
You do not get in the box a 2 - pin plug / three - pin mains connection, so if you do not have one already, you may need to add this to your list?
With this shaver and fresh blades, I can shave for less than a minute and frighten my whiskers from appearing for a few days. It does not nick my skin and leaves a smooth skin. Based on my ownership of this type of shaver, over this time and by this manufacturer, I can recommend this shaver as worth the money.
