The Philips Norelco Oneblade is an interesting looking electronic trimmer. At a first look, it may seem like someone simply took your standard wet shave head and made it into an electronic trimmer. But, the Philips Norelco Oneblade actually has many innovations over other wet-shaving devices. Some of these innovations make the Philips Norelco Oneblade a unique electronic trimmer that you won’t see anywhere else. But, before getting into the innovation of the Oneblade, let’s take a quick look at what makes a great shaving device. After all, a good shave can make all of the difference in your day.

Philips Norelco Oneblade Review

Let’s start with shaving heads. No matter how good your electric shaver might be, a dull, scratchy shaver is no good for getting a clean, smooth shave. Philips has designed the Norelco Oneblade to have two separate channels for wet and dry shaving. This ensures that you get a shiner as you close up the trimmer but still have the ability to get a clean shave.

Another innovation that the Philips Norelco Oneblade has over other electric razors is the comb system. Rather than having a fixed comb that slides through the blades and gets caught on the facial hair, the Philips Norelco Oneblade has a comb that can move back and forth and move under the blades to clear up any nicks or cut lines. When you are done, simply close the comb. The Oneblade comes with two detachable combs, allowing you to adjust the angles of the comb for maximum results.

One of the biggest problems with Philips Norelco Oneblade shavers is that sometimes they don’t deliver their promised result. A customer complained that her Oneblade did not close right on her face even though she kept pushing it forward. After returning the unit to the store, she did find that the culprit was in fact the Oneblade’s lithium ion battery, which was charging. Now, this is a very common problem with lithium ion batteries, so it is something to keep in mind if you are suffering from this issue.

Other complaints from users include numbness, excessive hair growth, and that the blades get caught up in the hair of shaving and pull out the skin rather than cutting it. Other people complained about inconsistent shaving quality and a quick need to recharge the batteries. Some say that the Oneblade does not perform as well as some of the other electric shavers available. According to reviews, the Oneblade performed well enough, but might not be as durable as other models. For a great price and high performance, you should consider a Philips Norelco Oneblade.

The Philips Norelco Oneblade is not the cheapest electric shaver on the market, but it is one of the most affordable ones on the market today. When you take into consideration all the features and the power that it offers to you, it becomes easy to see why it is so popular with men everywhere. Compared to other brands of wet shavers, Philips has produced a model that offers everything that a man would want from an electric shaver, including a fast closing time, a close distance and a lot more. In addition, the Philips Norelco Oneblade gives you the ability to control how much power your unit requires by simply pressing a button on the side of the unit.

The Philips Norelco Oneblade is made to offer a smooth shave as well as several other unique benefits. The Oneblade allows for a close and comfortable shave because it uses pressure to cut the hairs. Unlike other shavers that use pull on the handle or a constant pulling action, the Philips Norelco Oneblade eliminates these. The Oneblade is also a very quiet shaver because it utilizes a light emitting diode (LED) diode that emits bright white light. The LED is what helps to illuminate the blades making it easier for the user to see exactly where the shaver is at all times.

The Philips Norelco Oneblade is also very durable. It has an international model as well as a more compact American model. The international model is roughly three inches long and weighs two ounces. Because of its size it can easily be taken anywhere. The American model is approximately eight inches long and less than two ounces. Both come in either black or green.
